Defensive tackle: Sylvester Williams is a prime example of this offseason’s stopgap additions.

The former first-round pick inked a one-year deal with the club that will pay him $3.5 million in 2018. That’s a quality short-term solution, but the team could use a long-term option to play the nose tackle position in Matt Patricia’s multiple front, or even a penetrating 3-tech who could be an upgrade over Akeem Spence. No one should be surprised if the Lions go with an interior lineman in the first round, with Vita Vea, Da’Ron Payne, Maurice Hurst and Taven Bryan all carrying appeal.

Tight end: The Lions dumped Eric Ebron and saw Darren Fells depart in favor of a three-year deal in Cleveland, leaving a significant void. The team filled it with Luke Willson, an athletic option who has the potential to outproduce what he’s done in the NFL thus far, and Toilolo, a big-bodied blocker who more closely mirrors Fells’ skill set. Second-year man Michael Roberts should also help make up some of the production lost with Ebron’s departure, but there’s no doubt the Lions could use more talent at this spot.

If he’s anywhere close to the same player he was before the injury, it will be a big boost to a pass rush that was anemic at times last season. That said, you can never have enough players capable of pressuring the quarterback, so if the Lions can land a prospect capable of doing it consistently, even situationally, the team would be wise to pull the trigger.

I don’t think they realized it [at the time]. Now Swain is wondering if the NFL realizes what it has in Jackson. Once again there seems to be an uncertain reaction to him.

While most of the quarterbacks coming out of college this year are projected optimistically, almost irrationally, Jackson hasn’t gotten that response. There was debate that he should play another position. If he doesn’t play quarterback, it’s the biggest travesty that’s ever going to happen in the NFL, Swain says. I’ve never seen anybody with his determination, competitive nature. You’ll never see how competitive he is. Jackson has a rifle arm. He has terrific speed. He has never churned up controversy.
