We just got done with the Fourth July celebrations (I hope you all had a good one), and that means football is just around the corner. The Lions are currently scheduled to play the Chicago Bears on September 13, and whether the Lions play eight games, 16 games, or something in-between, there are plenty of fun players to watch on offense and defense.

Today’s Question of the Day is:

Who will be the most explosive Lions player in 2020?

My answer: D’Andre Swift

Even though he’s just a rookie, I think Swift will be electric this season. The offense is full of playmakers, but few can create explosive plays like Swift can.

With a 4.48 40-yard dash he posted at the NFL Combine, he’s not a true burner, but has plenty of speed and quickness to take advantage of defenses in the NFL.

With several skill players struggling to stay healthy last season, I think the door is wide open for Swift to take over as the Lions most explosive player.

There are plenty of options on defense as well, including fellow rookie Jeff Okudah.

Let us know in the comments who you think will be the most explosive player this season.

Your turn.
