Jashon Cornell Graded as a Top Defensive Tackle from 2020 Draft Class

Pro Football Focus grades Jashon Cornell as one of the top defensive tackles from the 2020 NFL Draft class

Ohio State product and defensive tackle Jashon Cornell, the Lions' seventh-round draft pick this past April, was one of Pro Football Focus' highest-graded DTs from the 2020 draft class.

In fact, according to PFF, he received the fourth-best grade (90.2) of the tackles on the defensive side of the ball in the 2020 class.

Cornell suited up for 46 games over his four-year career with the Buckeyes, and produced 13.5 tackles for loss, seven sacks and 63 total tackles. 

It appears Detroit general manager Bob Quinn got some really good value with the final pick in his fifth draft as front-office head honcho.

Let’s take a look now at some of the other trending Lions stories from around the web:
