Ranking the Room: NFC North Tackles
2. Detroit Lions: Taylor Decker, Ricky Wagner, Tyrell Crosby
Taylor Decker was an obvious upgrade over Riley Reiff in his rookie season. He missed the start of his sophomore season, and while he was not elite, he looks to be forming into that type of tackle for the rest of his career. It will be interesting to see if Decker can take a step forward.
Ricky Wagner was given a big deal this past offseason after a strong career with the Baltimore Ravens. He backed that up with what was a very strong overall season. PFF had him rated as the #11 tackle in the NFL. He is a solid addition to the group and rounds off a high upside group.
Tyrell Crosby completes the group. As a fifth-round pick, he was a steal. He has great size, athleticism and can even kick into guard if needed. The team also has some depth in Brian Mihalik, who started a few games last season. He was not strong in his limited time but is a high upside player with great size. Overall this could be a top ten group in the NFL.
