Detroit Lions 2020 NFL Mock Draft

- Updated: Friday, May 3rd

The Huddle Report tracks NFL Mock Draft Accuracy and EDSFootball's Kevin Hanson ranks 1st in accuracy among experts tracked over the past five years. In addition, his 2015 NFL mock was the most accurate among the 113 tracked that year.

Below is our first round pick for the Detroit Lions in our way-too-early 2020 NFL Mock Draft:

7. Detroit Lions (Draft History): A.J. Epenesa, DE, Iowa Hawkeyes

In the pre-draft (2019) version of this mock, I had Epenesa going fourth overall as the second non-QB. With another strong season, it wouldn't surprise me if he was off the board in the first five picks. Epenesa had 10.5 sacks, 16.5 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles as a sophomore for the Hawkeyes last year.
