We all knew that 97.1 The Ticket’s Mike Valenti would bash the Detroit Lions after their latest debacle on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers but we did not know that he would drop the bomb that Matt Patricia did not want to draft Jeff Okudah and GM Bob Quinn did it anyways.
Not long after Valenti’s accusation, Patricia met with the media and he was asked if it was true that Quinn went against his wishes and selected Okudah with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
Patricia, not surprisingly, called Valenti’s accusation blatantly not true.
Matt Patricia said the report that there was major division on draft day and Bob Quinn went against the wishes of personnel/Patricia to draft Okudah is blatantly not true.

Here is the video of Patricia’s response.
Nation, who do you believe? Matt Patricia or Mike Valenti?
