DETROIT – The 2020 NFL Draft wrapped up Saturday -- how did the Detroit Lions do?
The Lions picked up five players in the final day of the draft -- A lineman, a wide receiver, running back and two defensive tackles. Overall, the Lions drafted nine players.
Brown said they’re a great pickup.
- Detroit Lions trade up to take Ohio State G Jonah Jackson in third round of 2020 NFL draft
- Detroit Lions take Notre Dame LB Julian Okwara with first selection in third round of 2020 NFL draft
- Detroit Lions select Georgia RB D’Andre Swift in second round of 2020 NFL draft
Overall, the Lions got three players from Ohio State University -- Jeff Okudah, Jashon Cornell and Jackson -- and runningback D’Andre Swift from the University of Georgia. Brown said those college programs are a cut above and even with the unusual off-season, he believes they will be ready to play.
Brown said with the Lions’ draft picks and free agents picked up recently, they will be a better team, but he also thinks the Minnesota Vikings got better in the draft and -- now that Aaron Rogers has incentive to win, the Lions division will still be difficult.
