Wednesday open thread: Which position is most up for grabs on the Lions roster?

There has been quite a bit of roster turnover this offseason.

With any regime change comes a significant amount of roster turnover. The current roster is almost unrecognizable compared to the Detroit Lions of just six moths ago, in large part thanks to the previous regime’s geriatric principles of how a team should be built. A single offseason into its dismantling, it’s quite unclear still how numerous position groups will look heading into Week 1.

Question of the day: Which position group is most up for grabs on the Lions roster?

My answer: Cornerback, in particular CB1, is probably the murkiest to me.

Jeff Okudah could easily make a Darius Slay-esque jump in play that makes him the team’s clear-cut alpha at the position, especially with a defensive coordinator who thrives with players like Okudah. Likewise, Amani Oruwariye has steadily trended upwards over the past season and a half and could just as easily make the jump as Okudah. If neither step up to the plate however, Quinton Dunbar is still a formidable presence who could be a stopgap CB1 if the organization doesn’t feel like any of the younger pieces are the answer.

Your turn. Which position group do you think is the most up for grabs given the current roster?
