The Lions' hope was that Okudah would come back from his Achilles injury and develop into the player many thought he would be when he was selected with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, that was not the case and it was time to move on. By sending Okudah to the Falcons, which just so happens to be the team he wanted to play for coming out of Ohio State, the Lions have picked up an additional pick in the upcoming draft.
