The Detroit Lions finished off their 2020 NFL Draft class with nine selections. After starting off the draft class with a pair of defensive impact players in cornerback Jeff Okudah and edge defender Julian Okwara with two of the first three picks, the Lions went heavy on their offense.
What followed was four straight picks on offense, including back-to-back picks at guard and a couple of skill-position weapons.
This draft was a mix of players we expected to be liked by the Lions (Okudah, Okwara) mixed with some serious surprises, including grabbing a running back with their second-round pick.
Unlike certain expectations, the Lions didn’t grab a punter nor a quarterback, and they waited until late in Day 3 to pick a wide receiver. Still, early returns on their draft class were overwhelmingly positive. A somewhat quiet and understated Day 3 may have taken the sails out of the national winds, though.
