Three Biggest Issues Facing The Lions As Training Camp Begins
By: Pat Caputo
1. Who is going to start at the cornerback spot opposite Chris Houston? If I were a betting man, I’d bet on Bill Bentley. Even before Aaron Berry was cut, I expected the Lions’ third-round draft pick would contribute immediately. Now it may be as a starter.
2. How healthy are Mikel Leshoure and Jahvid Best? Talent is not the issue at running back for the Lions. Both these guys are gifted football players, but can they stay on the field for an entire season? That’s a huge question mark.
3.Will first-round draft choice Riley Reiff contribute immediately? There is a lot of talent there in Reiff, too much, it would seem, to start the season on the bench.
