  • Another tight end?
  • Is Graham Glasgow a problem or do the Lions just not want to spend money on a guard?
  • Offensive tackle of the future in this draft class?
  • How do they replace Damon Harrison?
  • A’Shawn Robinson or Mike Daniels return?
  • Is EDGE rusher really a big priority?
  • There are 8 Linebackers on the roster, are they done?
  • Is cornerback the top priority?
  • How will they address the safety position?
