RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Slay will backup the Lions' corners this season, but there will be some competition in camp after the Lions were mediocre against the pass last season.

2013

Slay is one of the draft's elite athletes at any position, not to mention cornerback. Slay, however, was not especially polished at Mississippi State and wasn't as effective as several of the corners he was selected ahead of. He will likely compete with Bill Bentley to start opposite Chris Houston.
