The Lions were faced with the first tough decision of the 2020 NFL Draft when they came on the clock, and they opted to hopefully find a long-term replacement for Darius Slay with their selection of Jeff Okudah. The followed it up with a running back who was largely touted as the best in the class, a pass rusher with excellent twitch and burst, and a guard who was largely touted as the best in the class. It was quite the haul. We'll be tracking every player they take and every grade they receive for those picks in this space throughout draft weekend.
