Lions T.J. Hockenson 'best offensive skill player'
MLive's Kyle Meinke wrote that T.J. Hockenson has been the Lions "best offensive skill player" in camp.Advice
: Hockenson's target competition is weak. Breshad Perriman is on his seventh team since 2017. Tyrell Williams had his only 1,000 yard season back in 2016. The next two wide receivers on the depth chart, Quintez Cephus and Amon-Ra St. Brown, are both day three selections. "Best offensive skill player" was always going to come down to Hockenson or D'Andre Swift. Still, Meinke joins a chorus of Lions beat reporters who see a big season ahead for the third year player. Hockenson will see quite a bit more defensive attention than the typical tight end, but if he's up to that challenge, he could feast on underneath throws. Jared Goff's average depth of attempt was the fourth shallowest last season, ahead of only Alex Smith, Drew Brees and Nick Mullens. NBCSportsEDGE.com
