There's now some doubt, at least that's what the Lions themselves are saying after acquiring veteran
"I don't know," Lions offensive line coach Jeremiah Washburn said, via the Detroit Free Press. "And I'm not trying to be evasive, I just don't know. What is it, May 2, 3rd? The depth kind of develops itself, which is a nice thing. Going through OTAs, mini-camp, training camp, it always takes care of itself."
Swanson is still the favorite to start at center, though it does appear the Lions want to put him in a competitive situation.
The Lions pick up two fifth-rounders and Ramirez, who earned a negative grade from Pro Football Focus in both pass blocking and run blocking last season. He can slot in at either guard or center for the Lions.
The Broncos, who were predicted by some to focus on adding offensive-line talent in the draft, instead move up to grab Ray, who was one of the top-rated pass rushers during the predraft process but was cited for marijuana possession earlier this week, causing him to fall down some team's draft boards.
Manning came into the contest listed as probable due to a thigh injury. He was never really expected to miss the contest. Sanders was listed as questionable with a hip issue. He was a limited participant in practice all week.
The team will also have nearly all of their probable players. That means
Those included running back
The Broncos did list six players as probable, and should have them available Sunday.
