There is no doubt the Detroit Lions have a better roster and significantly improved chances to win more games in 2022. But there is still quite a way to go before Dan Campbell’s Lions are considered a good football team. The latest barometer that shows where the Lions sit in the NFL talent pantheon comes from CBS Sports.

Analyst Pete Prisco compiled a list of the top 100 players in the league entering the 2022 season. Not a single Lions player makes an appearance in the top 100.

Right tackle Penei Sewell did earn an honorable mention, where he was the first name listed. Center Frank Ragnow and left tackle Taylor Decker arguably belong at least in that category as well even wtih coming off injury-shortened seasons. But the level of NFL accomplishment just isn’t there to give compelling arguments advocating for any other Lions to be on the list. Not right now anyway; several should merit placement on the list at this time next year, however.

It’s a reality check that the youthful Lions still have a lot to prove and that the team lacks proven NFL commodities at difference-making positions.
