Look: Lions CB Jeff Okudah and WR Breshad Perriman working out together

Detroit Lions 2020 first-round pick CB Jeff Okudah had a challenging rookie season, as most first-year defensive backs do, but his work ethic has never been questioned.

“Just seeing that, (it) just instilled a work ethic just knowing that you get out what you put into things,” Okudah said of his late mother’s drive to put herself through nursing school while receiving chemotherapy treatments. “I’m always trying to put my best foot forward and strive to be great.”

That desire to be great has kept Okudah in Detroit this offseason, where he has been a regular at the Lions training facility in Allen Park, according to team president Rod Wood.
