Wednesday open thread: Is Jeff Okudah the right pick at number 3?

New, comments

Almost every mock draft is shipping him to Detroit.

‘Tis the season. Mock drafts are upon us, and they’re being milked dry. We’re still over two months from the draft and seemingly every scenario has been played out. The Lions sit at number three, and there has been very little variation in what takes place at one and two. That typically leaves them with Ohio State CB Jeff Okudah in their lap.

Question of the day: Are you okay with the Lions taking Okudah with the third overall pick?

My answer: I guess so. I always hesitate taking a corner that high (especially after all the mocks that said Dee Milliner was the future of Detroit) but if the Lions truly believe he’s the right guy, so be it. Ideally we’d all like the Lions to trade down, and even more ideally perhaps Okudah is still available at five or wherever the Lions trade down to, but you really never know.
