Lions 2020 NFL Draft picks set

The NFL has awarded 32 compensatory picks to 15 clubs.

Under the rules for compensatory draft selections, a team losing more or better compensatory free agents than it acquires in the previous year is eligible to receive compensatory draft picks. Compensatory free agents are determined by a formula based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.

The Lions were not among those teams awarded compensatory picks. It's the fourth straight season Detroit hasn't been awarded a compensatory pick.

With the announcement of the compensatory picks, the 2020 NFL Draft order is now set.

Lions general manager Bob Quinn will have seven picks at his disposal this year, including the No. 3 overall pick. The Lions have a selection in each of the first six rounds, with two picks in the fifth round. Detroit currently does not have a seventh-round pick.

The draft will be held April 23-25 in Las Vegas.

Here are where Detroit's seven draft picks fall:

Round 1, Pick 3

Round 2, Pick 3 (35 overall)

Round 3, Pick 3 (67 overall)

Round 4, Pick 3 (109 overall)

Round 5, Pick 3 (149 overall)

Round 5, Pick 27 (172 overall)

Round 6, Pick 3 (182 overall)
