Jeff Okudah, CB, Ohio State

I went with Jeff Okudah cornerback from Ohio State, making it the first time the Detroit Lions have selected a corner with a first-round pick since Terry Fair in 1998. I thought long and hard about taking their QB of the future in Tua, and even though the upside is there, I ultimately feel as though going from one QB with injury questions to another isn’t the best direction to go in. With Okudah they fill an obvious hole at the position after the Darius Slay trade and get their shutdown corner of the future. The Lions need to get better production out of their top picks, and with Okudah’s talent, size, and athleticism I believe they get just that.
