Summary

The Lions defense relies heavily on an uber-talented defensive line. Suh, Fairley and Ansah have the ability to form one of the most disruptive lines in the league. You do get the feeling that there's some untapped potential in all three. Stephen Tulloch is the clear leader of the linebackers corps but DeAndre Levy provided a lot of help last year with excellent coverage skills. If Kyle Van Noy can make an impact in year one, that would really solidify this defense. The Lions secondary is a real question mark. There is not a lot of talent here and even less upside. James Ihedigbo could provide some stability on the back side at safety but even he has a fairly short track record of success. If this secondary can be even average the front seven could make it a great defense. (May 28)
