Lions 2019 roster predictions: Who will win the skill position battles?

Lions 2019 roster predictions: Who will win the skill position battles?

The Lions made a big investment into their skill positions this offseason, who makes the final cut? Detroit Lions general manager Bob Quinn has never shied away from letting the public know his roster building strategy. He has already spent two of his first four first-round selections as a general manager on the offensive line. After he selected guard Frank Ragnow in the first round of the 2018 NFL draft, he told DetroitLions.com: I think it starts up front. We want to build through the middle of our team, through the offensive line, defensive line and through the middle. And that’s kind...

VIDEO: Jahlani Tavai’s INT highlights Day 3 of Detroit Lions OTAs

The Lions’ second-round pick had the play of the day. The Detroit Lions have gone into protective mode. On Thursday, the team had their final OTA practice of the week, and seeing as it was closed from the media, we were again left to digest the session just from a photo gallery and highlights. However, unlike Day 1 of OTAs, the Lions didn’t divulge much information from those sources. There were no photos or video of the offensive or defensive lines, meaning we have no idea if Frank Ragnow still took reps at center on Thursday or what the defensive lineup may look like right now. But...

PFF: Frank Ragnow has potential to be the best center in NFL

PFF: Frank Ragnow has potential to be the best center in NFL

Pro Football Focus thinks Frank Ragnow’s potential is endless at his “new” position. The biggest news out of the first week of Detroit Lions Organized Team Activities is the offensive line shakeup. After preparing 2018 first-round pick Frank Ragnow for the guard position all of last year, Detroit trotted him out at center in the first two practices, suggesting there may be a positional change in the making. It’s still very possible that the Lions are simply cross training their players to give them more versatility in case of injury. However, Pro Football Focus appears to be a big...

Frank Ragnow is a big fan of making offensive line calls as center

Frank Ragnow is a big fan of making offensive line calls as center

Ragnow loves to be the leader, and he may actually get a chance in his second season. As the Detroit Lions continue to mix around their interior offensive lineman, one of the biggest factors in how things play out will be the players’ comfortability as a protection play-caller. Oftentimes, it will be the center’s responsibility to recognize the defense they’re facing and adjust the protection accordingly. Communication is key for every part of the offensive line, but for the center, it is essential. 2018 first-round pick Frank Ragnow is the latest to get a significant amount of...

Open thread: What is the ideal lineup for the Lions’ offensive line?

Open thread: What is the ideal lineup for the Lions’ offensive line?

What five starters would you like to see out there? Though it’s possible the Detroit Lions are just testing out each of their players’ versatility, the first two days of Organized Team Activities suggest there may be some big mixing and matching coming on the offensive line this year. Most notably, it’s looking more and more likely the team moves Frank Ragnow back to his college position at center and Graham Glasgow back at guard. But those two players are far from the only two with position versatility. Many projected second-year player Tyrell Crosby to move from tackle to guard,...

Lions continue to work Frank Ragnow at center, Graham Glasgow at guard

The Lions’ offfensive line shakeup may be here to stay. After Monday’s OTAs—which were only observed by the public through a photo gallery and a short highlight reel—it looked like the Detroit Lions may be playing around with the offensive line positions to see what they’ve got. After Tuesday’s practice, which was available to the media, it looks like this may be a more permanent move for Detroit. During all of the snaps that I observed during Detroit’s two-hour practice, the offensive line for the first-team offense was as followed: Left tackle: Taylor DeckerLeft guard:...

JUST IN: Detroit Lions’ Matt Patricia comments on if Frank Ragnow is moving to center

On Monday, the Detroit Lions tweeted out some photos from OTAs which caused “Lions’ Twitter” to lose their minds. The photos showed Frank Ragnow playing center and Graham Glasgow playing guard. Embed from Of course, those photos ended up making their way into articles, some of which used titles indicating that the Lions […] More

Next Man Up: Beau-lstering depth along the offensive line

Next Man Up: Beau-lstering depth along the offensive line

After a season of worrisome play at guard and the Lions’ best guard retiring, fans should be worried... or should they? The Detroit Lions are in a peculiar position at offensive guard. They struggled to keep quarterback Matthew Stafford upright when starting right guard T.J. Lang was injured in 2018. Now, Lang has retired and the Lions failed to address the position in the draft. Thus, it’s only logical to assume they got worse at the position. Looking at the situation through a different lens may provide a different perspective. 2018 first-round pick Frank Ragnow, who has the...
