In 2019, the Detroit Lions will look to improve on a 2018 season in which saw them finish last in the NFC North with a 6-10 record.

Over the offseason, Lions GM Bob Quinn has certainly improved the Lions’ roster compared to a year ago but the team will also need some players to have breakout seasons if they want to contend in the North.

When thinking about breakout candidates, we don’t often think about offensive linemen.

But that is exactly what Pro Football Focus was doing when they released their “breakout candidates for all 32 NFL teams” piece this morning.

When it comes to the Lions, PFF believes second-year OL Frank Ragnow, who now plays center, is a breakout candidate.

From PFF:

“Lining up at guard last year, Ragnow fell victim to some of the best interior pass-rushers in the league, tanking his grades to the point where his year could ultimately be judged as a disappointment. But his move back to center could spell big things for the sophomore offensive lineman after he dominated the position during his time in college to the tune of an 81.6 pass-blocking grade and a 94.4 run-blocking grade — dwarfing his mark from the right guard spot.”

Nation, who do you think will breakout for the Lions in 2019?
