DE - DET
Expert NoteView More Notes
Overall, a long and well built EDGE defender that lacks top-end athleticism. Best fit is as a 3-4 OLB, but is a liability when dropping into coverage. Plays extremely stiff. Good speed off the line and threatens OTs in that way, but has very little else to his game. Doesn't excel at getting off blocks either, so will be a liability in the run game. Very little evidence on tape of him making an impact in the run game. Could be a good rotational pass rusher, but will need to improve on a lot in order to move to a full time role.

Julian Okwara selected No. 67 by Detroit Lions
The Detroit Lions have selected defensive lineman Julian Okwara with the No. 67 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
An edge prospect who was putting together a nice string of first round tape prior to fracturing his left fibula, Julian Okwara will join brother Romeo on the Lions defensive line. Okwara is a menacing left end prospect who shows good power and speed when battling offensive linemen. A high level athlete with good bend and burst, Okwara will truly become a force once his body continues to fill out. Okwara is a DE3 at best in redraft IDP leagues, but could enter the DE2 conversation by the end of the season. Okwara has DE2 upside in dynasty leagues.
