2020 NFL mock draft: Who should the Detroit Lions select with their second-round pick?

The Lions are on the clock in our mock. Who should the pick in the second round?

As you may have noticed, the Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft completed its first round on Wednesday evening. With the final pick in the round, the Chiefs selected Clemson cornerback A.J. Terrell. Here is the full list of first round selections:

1. Bengals – LSU QB Joe Burrow
2. Washington – Clemson LB Isaiah Simmons
3. Lions – OSU EDGE Chase Young
4. Giants – Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs
5. Dolphins – Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa
6. Chargers – OSU CB Jeff Okudah
7. Panthers – Auburn DT Derrick Brown
8. Cardinals – Georgia OT Andrew Thomas
9. Jaguars – Alabama OT Jedrick Wills Jr.
10. Browns – Louisville OT Mekhi Becton
11. Jets – Oklahoma WR CeeDee Lamb
12. Raiders – Alabama WR Henry Ruggs III
13. 49ers – Alabama WR Jerry Jeudy
14. Buccaneers – South Carolina DT Javon Kinlaw
15. Broncos – Florida CB C.J. Henderson
16. Falcons – LSU EDGE K’Lavon Chaisson
17. Cowboys – LSU CB Kristian Fulton
18. Dolphins – Penn State EDGE Yetur Gross-Matos
19. Raiders – Oregon QB Justin Herbert
20. Jaguars – Iowa EDGE A.J. Epenesa.
21. Eagles – LSU WR Justin Jefferson
22. Vikings – Utah CB Jaylon Johnson
23. Patriots – Oklahoma LB Kenneth Murray
24. Saints – Houston OT Josh Jones
25. Vikings – Baylor WR Denzel Mims
26. Dolphins – Alabama S Xavier McKinney
27. Seahawks – LSU S Grant Delpit
28. Ravens – TCU DT Ross Blacklock
29. Titans – Alabama CB Trevon Diggs
30. Packers – LSU LB Patrick Queen
31. 49ers – Oklahoma DT Nevin Gallimore
32. Chiefs – Clemson CB A.J. Terrell

The second round is underway. And we are going to fly through these. So here are the first two picks of the second round:

33. Cincinnati Bengals - Wisconsin LB Zach Baun
34. Indianapolis Colts - TCU WR Jalen Reagor

And that puts the Detroit Lions, and our own Kent Lee Platte back on the clock.

If you look at the best players available that fit a need, you’ve got the top two interior offensive linemen still available in Michigan’s Cesar Ruiz or LSU’s Lloyd Cushenberry. The Lions could also take whoever their top running back is in this year’s class, as no one has grabbed J.K. Dobbins, D’Andre Swift nor Jonathan Taylor.

There is also plenty of defensive talent still left on the board. With EDGE already taken care of after selecting Chase Young in the first round, the Lions could target a top cornerback left on the board, be it Jeff Gladney or Noah Igbinoghene. Or they could get an interior defender in Raekwon Davis or Jordan Elliott.

We will feature Kent’s pick on Friday at 9 a.m. ET. But for now, vote on who you’d pick:


Who should the Lions select with their 35th overall pick?
