Detroit Lions Depth Chart

D'Andre Swift, Detroit Lions

How the Lions could line up for the 2022 season.

The Detroit Lions actually took another step backward last season, going 3-13-1 with their fourth straight last-place finish in the NFC North. But the team was 3-3 after starting 0-10-1 showing some signs of improvement under new head coach Dan Campbell. Are the Lions poised for a bigger leap in 2022? The offense has plenty of intriguing pieces, including running back D'Andre Swift, wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown, and tight end T.J. Hockenson, but more production is needed, especially out of quarterback Jared Goff. However, the real improvement needs to come on defense, which now includes No. 2 overall pick Aidan Hutchinson. The Heisman Trophy runner-up and former Michigan defensive end will look to have an instant impact for his hometown team.
