CB - DET
Expert NoteView More Notes
Overall, a lockdown corner at the next level. While he doesn't possess elite strength or press coverage ability, Okudah makes up for it with extreme fluidity and flexibility. Good ball skills and has tremendous top-end speed. Was exposed a bit in zone coverage, but wasn't asked to do that often. Active footwork puts him in the best position to flip and mirror opposing receivers. Willing participant in the run game and can set the tone for a defense. Tough and competitive. Top-tier CB prospect.

Jeff Okudah agrees to terms on four-year rookie deal with the Lions
No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft CB Jeff Okudah has agreed to terms on a four-year rookie contract with a fifth-year option with the Detroit Lions.
The standout Ohio State product figures to slot right in as the top corner in Detroit, taking the place of Darius Slay, who is now in Philadelphia. Per PFF, Okudah ranked number one last season in fewest receptions allowed among Big Ten CBs with 50+ targets. At a minimum, he’ll be faced with tough tests within his division by the likes of No. 1 WRs Davante Adams, Adam Thielen, and Allen Robinson. Okudah will be asked to earn his stripes early and often against some of the leagues top wide-outs, and his college tape says he’s more than capable of producing in those situations.
