The Lions selected the first of their two Round 3 picks.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL: SEP 14 New Mexico at Notre Dame

The Detroit Lions have selected edge defender Julian Okwara from Notre Dame in the third round with the 67th overall pick of the 2020 NFL Draft. Okwara now joins his brother Romeo on the Lions for what should be an interesting duo on the defensive front.

The Lions have another pick in the third round—the 21st pick, 85th overall—from the Philadelphia Eagles in the Darius Slay trade in March.

Lions picks thus far:

  • Round 1, Pick 3 - OSU CB Jeff Okudah
  • Round 2, Pick 3 (35 overall) - Georgia RB D’Andre Swift

Lions remaining picks

  • Round 3, Pick 21 (85 overall) - from Eagles

  • Round 5, Pick 20 (166 overall) - from Eagles
  • Round 6, Pick 3 (182 overall)
  • Round 7, Pick 21 (235 overall) - from Eagles via Patriots


Top remaining needs for Lions:

  • Cornerback
  • Defensive tackle
  • Offensive guard
  • Wide receiver
