Inside the Article:
Seven days of training camp are officially in the books for the Detroit Lions, so we thought it would be fun to take a look at what we project the offensive depth chart would look like if Week 1 of the 2023 season kicked off today. As you can see, Marvin Jones Jr. is listed as a starting wide receiver, as he was just removed from the NFI list on Monday.
Detroit Lions offensive depth chart projection: Week 2 of Training Camp
Here is what I believe the Lions' offensive depth chart would look like if the 2023 regular season kicked off today.
|Position||Starter||No. 2||No. 3||No. 4|
|QB||Jared Goff||Nate Sudfeld|
|RB||David Montgomery||Jahmyr Gibbs||Justin Jackson||Jason Cabinda (FB)|
|WR||Josh Reynolds||Antoine Green|
|WR (Slot)||Amon-Ra St. Brown||Kalif Raymond|
|WR||Marvin Jones Jr.||Denzel Mims|
|TE||Sam LaPorta||James Mitchell||Brock Wright|
|LT||Taylor Decker||Matt Nelson|
|LG||Jonah Jackson||Ross Pierschbacher|
|C||Frank Ragnow||Graham Glasgow|
|RG||Halapoulivaati Vaitai||Graham Glasgow|
|RT||Penei Sewell||Colby Sorsdal|
- We are not in Week 2 of Training Camp
- My current Detroit Lions offensive depth chart projection does not have any big surprises
- Marvin Jones Jr. is back on the depth chart after being removed from the NFI, and Justin Jackson has also been added after recently signing.
Bottom Line: Few Surprises
Not surprisingly, there are few surprises on what I believe would be the Lions' offensive depth chart if the season kicked off today. One thing to note that is different that what I previously had is that I now have Justin Jackson slotted in as the No. 3 running back. I previously had rookie UDFA Mohamed Ibrahim in that spot, but the Lions just signed Jackson, and I believe they did so for a reason.
