Detroit Lions trade down, get 4 picks as compensation in latest NFL Mock Draft

At this point, it would be more surprising if the Detroit Lions do not trade the No. 3 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft than if they do trade it.

The question is, what kind of package will the Lions get in return for a pick that would likely be used to select Tua Tagovailoa?

Well, according to a recent three-round mock draft published by Kevin Hanson of Sports Illustrated, the Lions trade the No. 3 pick to the Miami Dolphins for a whopping four draft picks. Those picks include the Dolphins No. 5 overall pick, No. 31 pick, No. 141 pick, and their third-round pick in 2021.

From Sports Illustrated:

Proposed trade: Miami sends the 5th, 39th and 141st picks plus their third-round pick in 2021 to Detroit for the third pick.

5. Detroit Lions: Jeffrey Okudah, CB, Ohio State

Signing Desmond Trufant to a two-year deal made it easier for the Lions to trade Darius Slay, but ultimately those two moves are a net downgrade for the secondary. Before those moves, the team was in need of an upgrade opposite their top cornerback. A complete corner, Okudah possesses an ideal blend of size, length, athleticism and competitiveness to develop into a shutdown corner for the Lions early in his career.

Here are the Detroit Lions’ remaining picks in Hanson’s 3-round mock:

No. 35 – Ross Blacklock (IDL) TCU

No. 39 – Brandon Aiyuk (WR) Arizona State

No. 67 – Robert Hunt (IOL) Louisiana-Lafayette

No. 85 – Bradlee Anae (EDGE) Utah

Nation, would you be satisfied with this trade down scenario?
