#44 Detroit Lions: Travis Swanson, C ARK
Rory’s Take: Dominic Raiola is 35 which means the Lions need to start looking toward the future at the position. The offensive line needs to continue to get better and Swanson could start at guard to learn how to read defenses before taking over at center.
Chase’s Take: Detroit could definitely do with a reboot at the center position, even if they are going to let Raiola retire as a Lion bringing in a potential starter for the future couldn’t hurt.
