We’ve now all had a full week to digest the Detroit Lions’ nine selections in the 2020 NFL Draft. We’ve discussed the value of drafting a running back in the top two rounds. We’ve gotten to know fifth-round pick Quintez Cephus a little better. We’ve heard what former coaches think of Julian Okwara. And we’ve seen PFF basically fawn all over Detroit’s draft.
