It is no secret that the Lions struggled up front last season and improving the offensive line is priority number one for this team. Many pundits are calling for current left tackle and former 1st round pick Riley Reiff to shift over to right tackle. Meanwhile, Detroit has struck out so far in free agency as former Seahawks offensive tackle Russell Okung spurned the Lions to sign with Denver on a 5-year deal.

With the options in free agency just about dry, Detroit will need to address the tackle position via the draft. With the 16th pick in the 1st round, many are projecting the Lions to dip into a deep offensive tackle pool that includes Michigan State’s Jack Conklin and Ohio State’s Taylor Decker.
