Detroit Lions sign 1st-round draft pick Jeff Okudah, other later draft picks

ALLEN PARK (AP) — The Detroit Lions have signed first-round pick Jeff Okudah.
The Lions also announced Monday that they signed second-round selection D’Andre Swift along with fifth-round picks Quintez Cephus and Jason Huntley.
Detroit drafted Okudah, a former Ohio State standout, with third overall pick and made him the highest-drafted cornerback since Shawn Springs was selected from the same school by Seattle in 1997.
The Lions are hoping he becomes a game-changing talent to help a defense that ranked No. 31 in the league last season.
