Bob Quinn’s Best Draft Picks – Third Round

Here we are a spot that Bob Quinn might run to proclaim his draft prowess if he ever runs for anything. Graham Glasgow, Kenny Golladay, Tracy Walker, Will Harris, and rookies Julian Okwara and Jonah Jackson have all been selected in round three. Rookies aside that’s a pretty good haul, it’s a shame that Glasgow, a guard-center, had to leave during this offseason because Quinn has been pretty on-point for his third selections.

This is a draft round where you should still be able to find starters but all of these men will be playing significant snaps in 2020. Walker is a single-high safety and center fielder for the Detroit Lions, allowed to go and get the football in the air and protect the middle of the field. Harris has played his safety snaps in a more limited amount but is contributing since the Lions can have as many as three to four safeties on the field at once.

Glasgow was a starter along the offensive line at both center and right guard and was probably the most consistent of the line, missing few snaps in his four-year stint with the Detroit Lions. While Okwara and Jackson possess upside at defensive end and guard-center, this is the Kenny Golladay show.

Kenny Golladay was a North Dakota State commit who transferred to Northern Illinois for his last two years. Golladay was a smaller school prospect who came in under most people’s radar at 6-4, 218-pounds. Golladay didn’t wait to make his mark in Detroit after being taken at pick 96 overall.

Kenny is coming into the last year of his rookie deal and is expected to get a slight pay increase. He is expected to garner Top-10 pay for his Top-10 play. Already he has established himself as the number one option, caught 2,730 yards worth of passes and 19 touchdowns leading to his being named to the Pro-Bowl in last year’s NFL all-star game.
