Detroit Lions: Analyzing the Defensive Depth Chart

5 of 5

The Final Verdict: 

Detroit’s defense will take a minor step back, but not anything major. I think the Lions defense will remain top 10 in the league because of the skill and depth at key positions it puts Detroit in a great chance to succeed in 2015.

Teryl Austin’s scheme heavily favors a deep linebacker corps so when you add a guy like Ngata who is used to working in front of a good group of linebackers in the Ravens system, there is reason for optimism. I see no reason why Detroit can’t be top ten defense.
