Projecting the Detroit Lions’ 2021 depth chart entering NFL training camp

Detroit Free Press

The Detroit Lions hold their first practice of training camp Wednesday and there is much to be sorted out before the regular season opens Sept. 12 vs. San Francisco.

The Lions will have at least five new starters on offense this fall, at quarterback, right tackle and every wide receiver position — and they could have even more on defense.

Here is Lions beat writer Dave Birkett‘s projected depth chart for the start of camp, which opens to fans beginning Saturday.
