Locally, the Lions received pretty high marks in the draft. They added some top-notch talent and addressed several needs. Bob Quinn's fifth draft class -- knock on wood -- feels like it could be his best. 

“I don’t know if I’m going to say that right now," Quinn said Saturday night as he wrapped up the weekend. "I appreciate that you mentioned that, but we’ll see how these guys play. We’re excited about it, as you said. It’s a class that we put a lot of hard work in to. I think we have playmakers on both sides of the ball, and probably on special teams with a couple of these guys as well. So yes, I hope it is. I hope to improve every year."

Nationally, opinions varied. Some analysts, like Andy Benoit of MMQB, loved Detroit's haul. Others, like Pete Prisco of CBS Sports, weren't so enthused. Here's a breakdown of the national grades for Detroit's 2020 draft class.
