The Detroit Lions will have their top draft pick under contract when training camp opens later this month.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported the Lions reached an agreement on a four-year contract with No. 3 overall pick CB Jeff Okudah, per a source informed of the deal.
As with all first-round deals, the contract comes with a fifth-year team option.
The consensus top corner in the draft, the Ohio State product owns the size at 6-foot-1 and length to slide right into the starting rotation. Okudah's physical traits fit well in Matt Patricia's scheme, which calls for a plethora of press coverage on the outside.
The first-round pick joins veteran Desmond Trufant as a projected starter alongside nickel Justin Coleman in a revamped secondary. Selecting Okudah became a priority after the Lions traded Pro Bowl corner Darius Slay.
To date, Okudah is the highest 2020 first-round draft pick to agree to a contract.
