Did the Lions improve? Recap

Did the Detroit Lions improve their roster from 2014 to 2015? Here's a recap of how you voted.

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Over the course of this month, we took a look at each position on the Detroit Lions roster and determined if improvements were made from 2014 to 2015. The series has now come to a close, and the results are in. Here's a position-by-position look at what percentage of people said the Lions did in fact improve this year:

The three positions with the most perceived improvement are the interior offensive line, cornerback and running back. All three positions came in at 95 percent or higher in the "yes" category in our polls. Given the notable additions in the draft at each spot -- Laken Tomlinson (and Manny Ramirez via a trade) at OG, Alex Carter and Quandre Diggs at CB and Ameer Abdullah at RB -- I suppose this is no surprise.

It's also no surprise that defensive tackle came in dead last by a wide margin in the improvement category. Considering the Lions lost their entire top four at defensive tackle from last season, I'm honestly surprised there weren't fewer yes votes.

Overall, if you add the positions together and average the polls, around 72 percent of people thought the Lions improved on offense and around 68 percent of people thought the Lions improved on defense.
