The Detroit Lions ranked eighth in passing defense in 2018, allowing only 225 yards through the air to opposing offenses per game. Still, everyone realizes there is a gaping void that needs to be filled at cornerback.
On one side, the Lions have a two-time Pro Bowler in Darius Slay. The 28-year old recorded 43 tackles, 17 pass defends and three interceptions in 2018. The other cornerbacks (Nevin Lawson, Teez Tabor, Mike Ford, DeShawn Shead) registered a combined six total pass defends and posted no interceptions.
