  • The Detroit Lions 2020 draft class appears fashioned in the image/philospohy of Matt Patricia. Multiple on defense and an emphasis on interior offensive line play. There was a school of thought that the Detroit Lions would be best served trading down from the 3rd overall pick and acquiring additional draft capital considering numerous needs on either side of the ball. However, a trade did not materialize and the Lions opted for the top cornerback in the 2020 NFL Draft, Jeff Okudah out of Ohio State. Okudah not only serves as the presumed replacement of former Lions cornerback Darius Slay but his well-rounded skill-set appears to be a perfect fit for Patricia's man coverage laden defensive approach. On Day 2 of the draft the Detroit Lions added a couple more starters in running back D'Andre Swfit and offensive guard Jonah Jackson. High upside edge rusher, Julian Okwara out of Notre Dame was also among the Day 2 selections. During Day 3 of the 2020 NFL Draft the Lions continued to bolster their offense with OG Logan Stenberg from Kentucky, WR Quintez Cephus from Wisconsin, and RB/KR Jason Huntley out of New Mexico State. To round out their 2020 NFL Draft Class the Detroit Lions added a pair of defensive lineman in John Penisin (Utah) and Jashon Cornell (Ohio State) as added members of the dline rotation. Overall Couch Potato General Manager believes that the Lions selected as many as three immediate starters and added perhaps as many as 6 immediate contributors with their 9 draft selections. This ratio should be good for a strong draft grade among all 32 NFL Teams. Couch Potato GM.Lions draft grade. Lions 2020 draft picks. Lions 2020 draft. Detroit Lions draft recap 2020.
