3. Detroit Lions

Jeff Okudah, Desmond Trufant, Justin Coleman, Darryl Roberts, Mike Ford

First, let me note that the top three are very debatable. There is a chance that if things break the right way for this secondary that the Lions will leave the year as number one secondary in the division. However, as of this moment, they also have the most questions.

It is easy to trust Jeff Okudah, who was a slam dunk top-five pick. However, he is still a rookie. It is fair to have high expectations, but also fair to put him below elite cornerbacks in the NFL, which the Packers and Bears feature.

This ranking will hinge on Trufant, though. Injuries, age, and the like piled up on Trufant in Atlanta, and the Falcons cut bait, assuming Trufant has little in the tank. They would know more than anyone, so the move comes off of as desperate more than savvy.

Still, Desmond Trufant at peak powers is a stud corner. The duo could be elite. It also could be a rookie who is up and down, and the back end of a player slowly playing out of a job. The variance hurts them.

Justin Coleman helps them, though. He was relied on a lot last year, but with those two on the outside, he can settle into his role in the slot, where he may be the top slot corner in the division.
