How good can the Lions' offense be?
With the addition of two second-round draft picks — WR Titus Young and RB Mikel Leshoure — how good can the Lions’ offense be?
“If we are able to stay healthy I don’t think there’s a question we’ll be successful on the field with all the weapons we have,’’ wide receiver Calvin Johnson said.
Wide receiver Nate Burleson agreed with Johnson.
“There was a lot of questions about the draft and what we should do. The areas we should have interest in. I said from the beginning we should draft the best available athlete on the board,’’ Burleson said.
“I like exactly what they did, I don’t care if it’s a position I’m playing or a position that someone else is playing, if you get the best athlete you’re going to be in position to make plays. With the firepower we put on offense this year it’s going to be explosive,’’ Burleson added.
Even without Matthew Stafford for most of last season, the Lions managed to win six games. If the 23-year-old quarterback can stay healthy they are immediately better. Add the two rookies to the mix and there should be no questions. On paper there are no holes on the Lions’ offense. Now they just have to make it work.
