Detroit Lions: Graham Glasgow vs. Frank Ragnow
The Detroit Lions made some nice moves this offseason to bolster their roster, as they look to get back to the playoffs this season. In 2016, the Lions led the NFC North for most of the season before losing their grip on the division in a Week 17 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Still, the Lions made the playoffs that year as a Wild Card, and while they did lose in the Wild Card Round, it looked like they had the pieces in place to be a perennial playoff team. In 2017, they barely missed the playoffs after giving Matthew Stafford record-breaking money, but he was money once again for the team.
During the 2018 NFL Draft, the Lions selected Frank Ragnow in the first round, drafting the big man out of Arkansas. Ragnow is going to challenge to start right away along this offensive line, and could be the starting right guard in the Motor City as soon as Week 1.
Ragnow will have to beat out Graham Glasgow for the starting spot, as Glasgow is a solid interior lineman in his own right. Glasgow has already stated he is willing to play anywhere on the interior of the Lions line, so if Ragnow does beat him out, he should find a spot elsewhere in this revamped offensive line.
The Lions drafted Kerryon Johnson to help at running back this April as well, joining a solid group that includes LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick. Detroit also has some solid weapons on the outside, so if they can get this offensive line figured out, they could challenge in the NFC North once again in 2018.
