Key Additions: C Frank Ragnow, LB Devon Kennard, RB LeGarrette Blount, RB Kerryon Johnson, DT Sylvester Williams

Although the Lions just missed out on a postseason appearance in 2017, they have a lot of hope to get there in 2018. To start, hiring Matt Patricia was a tremendous move for Detroit. The former Pats DC will be an upgrade, and his schemes may be enough to get this team over the hump. The Lions have all the major pieces to compete at a high level. If Patricia can improve the Lions defense, and that could be the difference to make this team from good to great. The Lions have quality play-makers on offense, and enough talent on defense to make some noise in 2018. Watch out for the Lions as a deep sleeper to win the NFC North.
