Detroit Lions will pick No. 20 in NFL draft
The Detroit Lions were winners on the field Sunday and losers in the draft.
The Lions defeated the Green Bay Packers to finish with a 9-7 record and earned the worst possible draft spot among non-playoff teams at No. 20.
Four other non-playoff teams finished with 9-7 records, but tiebreakers determined the Lions' position.
Unless they trade out of the spot, the Lions will use that No. 20 pick when the 2018 NFL draft takes place April 26-28 in Arlington, Texas.
The Lions selected No. 21 in the first round of last year’s draft and took linebacker Jarrad Davis of Florida.
