The Detroit Lions most glaring weakness is at the cornerback position. General manager Martin Mayhew is relying on his former draft picks to step up and excel this season and did not make a significant offseason move to improve a glaring hole in the Lions defense. He had better hope it works out or this whole season could be a bust. Darius Slay is now the top cornerback on the Lions...
