The Lions’ ‘Most Improved’ Player is a young cornerback.

The Detroit Lions have had a difficult 0-8-1 season thus far, and it can be difficult to find the positives in anything that has happened thus far.

Despite this, many Lions players have put in standout performances week after week, demonstrating that the team has some hope for the future.

With the league approaching the halfway point of the season, Bleacher Report and writer Kristopher Knox looked at identifying each team’s most-improved player for the upcoming 2021 season on the field.

Because of what he has done on the field so far this season, cornerback Amani Oruwariye was chosen for Detroit.

Oruwariye’s career-high in interceptions, as well as improved coverage, show a player who is taking the right steps at a critical point on the field, as Knox wrote.

As a result, Knox believes Oruwariye is making a case for staying.

Given Oruwariye’s status as a former fifth-round pick, it’s not surprising to see him making such rapid progress.

Nonetheless, this is fantastic news for Detroit.

In 2021, Oruwariye will be the Lions’ best cornerback.

The Lions’ defensive backfield has been a source of criticism since the first game of the season.

The team’s top cornerback, Jeff Okudah, suffered a season-ending injury in the first game.

In the second week of the season, Detroit lost Ifeatu Melifonwu, a key rookie.

As a result, the team has asked Jerry Jacobs, AJ Parker, and Bobby Price, among others, to step up.

They’ve all done an outstanding job for the team so far this year.

In a press conference on Wednesday, November 17, Lions head coach Dan Campbell lauded Oruwariye for his performance against the Steelers in Week 10.

He was unaffected by his early penalty.

He went back to work right away, and man,…
