Lions To Start Riley Reiff Off At Left Tackle This Year
Throughout this offseason, there has been speculation over where Riley Reiff will start on the offensive line in 2013. With Jeff Backus retiring, Stephen Peterman being released and Gosder Cherilus departing in free agency, three starting spots are open on the offensive line.
With the Lions not having a shot at drafting one of the top three offensive tackles last Thursday, they decided to pass on adding a tackle at all in this year's draft. They did address the O-line by drafting offensive guard Larry Warford, and this in turn has helped clear up where Reiff will play in 2013. According to Lions head coach Jim Schwartz, Reiff will start things off at left tackle.
"We drafted him as a left tackle," Schwartz said. "Probably with the way things ended up here, we’ll probably start him off there. We have a lot of confidence in him. I mean, that’s why we drafted him last year."
