TRADE: The Miami Dolphins send the 2020 5th and 56th overall picks and the 2021 2nd round pick acquired from the Houston Texans to the Detroit Lions for the 3rd overall pick in the 2020 NFL draft.
#5) Detroit Lions (via Miami): Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State
The Lions are able to move down a few spots to acquire more draft capital and are still able to get their man. Jeff Okudah is one of the best cornerback prospects we’ve seen in the last decade. Selecting him here gives the Lions quite the tandem with Okudah and Darius Slay.
#35) Detroit Lions: D’Andre Swift, Running Back, Georgia
D’Andre Swift is a dynamic player in the mold of Saints’ star running back Alvin Kamara, and he would add a new dimension to the Lions offense. Swift is one of the biggest play-makers in this draft class and instantly brings credibility to the Detroit running game.
#56) Detroit Lions: Julian Okwara, EDGE, Notre Dame
Julian Okwara certainly looks the part and while he needs to find some consistency in the game, he could develop into a solid pass rusher. For whatever reason, the Lions defense took a step backward in 2019, but adding players like Jeff Okudah and Julian Okwara will get them back on track.
#67) Detroit Lions: Gabriel Davis, WR, UCF
A few years back, the Lions struck gold when they drafted Kenny Golladay, and they might have just done the same thing with this selection. Gabriel Davis is a big-time receiver that takes a fall due to a historically strong wide receiver group. He is a top-50 player in this draft. Paired with the earlier selection of D’Andre Swift, the Lions’ offense could be dangerous.
#106) Detroit Lions: Solomon Kindley, OL, Georgia
#149) Detroit Lions: David Woodward, LB, Utah State
#173) Detroit Lions: Larrell Murchison, DT, North Carolina State
#183) Detroit Lions: Jauan Jennings, WR, Tennessee
