The Detroit Lions put the final touches on their 90-man roster over the weekend when they signed their rookie class and 14 additional undrafted free agents. Third-round pick Kenny Golladay has yet to sign a deal, per reports, but he is listed on the team’s official roster, and he participated in the Lions’ rookie minicamp over the weekend.

So with a roster now in place it’s time to start seeing where the Lions stack up with the rest of the league. Bob Quinn’s two years of roster manipulation has resulted in a huge overhaul of talent, so let’s see how he’s done.

Today’s Question of the Day is:

What is the Lions’ biggest strength on their 90-man roster?

My answer: Quarterback. I have gone on record as saying that as long as Matthew Stafford plays a full 16-game season, this team will never finish with double-digit losses again. Last year he clearly moved into the top 10 among all NFL quarterbacks, and I’m not sure there’s any other position outside of maybe offensive line where the Lions would rank among the top 10 in the league.

Even if there was, Stafford is clearly the Lions’ biggest asset and that’s why they’re going to pay him big in the upcoming months.

Your turn.
