Ifeatu Melifonwu and Will Harris Officially Change Positions at Lions Training Camp

The Detroit Lions defense ranked 31st last season in points allowed. While the team significantly upgraded their defensive line by drafting Aidan Hutchinson 2nd overall, many questions still loomed over what this defense would look like heading into 2022. Detroit stayed relatively quiet in free agency regarding the defense, leaving fans to ponder if we would be sending out the same secondary as last season. For the most part, that remains true. However, head coach Dan Campbell made it official at training camp that there would be multiple position changes in the secondary, including Ifeatu Melifonwu and Will Harris.

Will Harris and Ifeatu Melifonwu have new positions in Lions secondary

It’s not too shocking, but Will Harris and Ifeatu Melifonwu officially have new positions in the Lions’ secondary. The Detroit Lions have plenty of question marks in their secondary, but in some respects things can only get better. Will Harris seemed to have found a home at cornerback late last season after being ill-equipped to play safety, and Ifeatu Melifonwu remains a promising player heading into his second season.

Lions' Will Harris: Defensive role uncertain

Head coach Dan Campbell indicated that Harris' defensive role in 2022 has yet to be determined, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports. Harris has largely been a disappointment at safety since Detroit spent a third-round pick on him in 2019. However, multiple injuries to the Lions secondary forced him into a key role at cornerback to end the 2022 campaign, and he reportedly performed well enough for the Detroit coaching staff to consider a position change. With that said, the way the team spends its significant draft capital later this month will probably play a large role in how Harris will ultimately fit into the its new 4-3 defense.
