2016 Detroit Lions projected depth chart

Here’s a look at what the Detroit Lions depth chart looks like.

Detroit Lions v Arizona Cardinals

With the Detroit Lions establishing their 53-man roster on Saturday, the team that we’ll see for the 2016 season is starting to take form. It’s still likely the Lions will tinker with the bottom of their roster. The Lions are still expected to put Jon Bostic on injured reserve, and they will also get their shot at waived players from other teams at noon on Sunday. That being said, we still have a pretty good idea of where most of the roster will stand in 2016. So without further ado, here’s a look at our projected depth chart.
