First off let me say, I really liked the Lions selection of Penei Sewell. I think often when people say they would have preferred another path, others misinterpret that to mean they don’t like the path that was chosen. That’s not at all the case.

Detroit Lions 2020 Post-Draft Roster Outlook (OFFENSE)

For reference, here is the pre-draft overview for QB and OL. QB No additions and that’s a good thing.
