RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

The 2013 second-round pick took a big step forward in 2014, where he emerged as the team's top corner. While he picked off just two passes on the season, he got his hands on plenty more, ranking in the top 10 in the league with 17 passes defensed. He also chipped in 61 tackles. Defensive coordinator Teryl Austin made his rise in the league as a defensive-back guru and so Slay could see his stock continue to rise, especially if he is able to turn a few of his passes defensed into interceptions

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.
