Detroit Lions slot receiver depth chart, post-draft

  1. Amon-Ra St. Brown
  2. Kalif Raymond
  3. Kalil Pimpleton
  4. Tom Kennedy

Detroit Lions rookie sensation Amon-Ra St Brown should see most of his time in the slot where he excels. St. Brown should be the leading receiver on the team as Jared Goff’s safety valve, and he could be even better this year with the space Chark and Williams create.

Speedy Kalif Raymond should look to make the team again as the return man and shifty slot option who is dangerous in open space. Raymond will have to hold off Tom Kennedy and UDFA Kalil Pimpleton as they are both smaller slot receivers and returners with “make you miss” ability.

Raymond probably has the edge up as the veteran and the ability he showed last year to spend some time playing as an outside receiver. It’s a pretty easy depth chart to piece together. Just looking at the names themselves, it’s easy to see who is going to be the impact players.

St. Brown and Raymond have both shown experience in this position and it will be interesting to see how this shakes out and who’s in the slot role most often as the season gets closer. Training camp will certainly provide more of an indication as to who is going to be in the slot most often.
