The Lions made Okudah the third overall pick in 2020 with the expectation that he would become a regular starter. However, Okudah hasn’t reached that ceiling yet because of injuries and bad luck. Some fans consider him a controversial figure because they had such high expectations.
Now, Okudah is dealing with extra pressure because he is competing against Will Harris for the starting spot. It’s time for him to prove that he is ready to take Detroit forward to the next level. This competition may be good for Okudah and force him out of his shell but it’s not going to be easy (via Yardbreaker).
