3. Detroit Lions

Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jameson Williams, Marvin Jones, Josh Reynolds, Kalif Raymond, Tom Kennedy, Antoine Green, Dylan Drummond, Chase Cota, Trinity Benson, Maurice Alexander

The Lions have talent at wide receiver, but not enough to rank near the top of the NFC North.

Amon-Ra St. Brown made his first Pro Bowl last season after catching 106 passes for 1,161 yards and six touchdowns. He successfully built on an impressive rookie year and leads the way at receiver for Detroit.

Jameson Williams only made one catch as a rookie, but it was a 41-yard touchdown. Williams has the potential to become a WR1, but the Lions will be without him for the opening six games of the regular season due to suspension.

Detroit brought back Marvin Jones, who caught 36 touchdowns during his previous five seasons with the team. He showed he can still play last year, although he is entering his age-33 season.

This group is talented, but the Lions may regret not building their receiving corps even more during the draft. They twice passed on Jaxon Smith-Njigba in the first round and then missed out on Jayden Reed and Rashee Rice in the second.

Still, St. Brown is a star and leads a talented receiving corps.
