The Detroit Lions hold the third pick and have plenty of options at their disposal. In this scenario, they choose to trade down and out of the top ten.
With the third pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions have a multitude of options at their disposal. From staying put and picking at three to trading back a couple (or more) places, the Lions will have some major choices to make come draft night.
Some more important needs Detroit has includes wide receiver, linebacker, and both offensive and defensive linemen. They also need to add more help for the secondary and possibly look into drafting a quarterback in the later rounds.
In this particular mock draft, the Lions choose to trade back from three down to 13 overall but pick up two extra second-round picks, a fourth-rounder, a sixth-rounder, and a seventh-rounder. These picks will come in handy for two later trades the Lions will make.
The Lions then decide to send the Cincinnati Bengals the 154th and 162nd overall picks for the 97th overall pick. Following that, Detroit acquires the 107th overall pick from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 131st and 204th overall picks.
These picks and trades were made using The Draft Network’s Mock Draft Machine. The picks made in this draft may not be completely accurate in regards to who will be available when, but the best option was taken from the available choices.
Likewise, even if a trade seems to lean too far in one direction, the trade was offered by the user and the computer runs an algorithm to determine whether to accept or reject the trade. With that said, here are the picks. Be sure to let us know what values you did or didn’t like and who you’d be interested in drafting where.
