Detroit Lions Draft Watch: Week in Review


As the clock ticks closer to draft day, NFL teams are ramping up their pre-draft visits and private player workouts.  In the last seven days, the Detroit Lions have played host to cornerbacks Stanley Jean-Baptiste (Nebraska) and Justin Gilbert (OK St.); center Marcus Martin (USC); safety Jerome Couplin (W&M); linebackers Khalil Mack (Buffalo), Khairi Fortt (Cal) and Kyle VanNoy (BYU). Today, they will host wide receiver Erik Lora (E. Ill.).

Also in the past week, reports of pre-draft visits by wide receiver Davante Adams (Fresno St.) and linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis (Nebraska) surfaced.  While neither player had a specific visit date confirmed, both visits are said to have taken place in April.

With Lora’s visit today, that brings the pre-draft visit total to 26.  Each NFL team is allotted 30 pre-draft visits.  With only four visits remaining, it will be telling to see who else will be asked to the Allen Park facilities.

For a more in-depth look at this week’s highly talked about prospects: visit the SideLion Report’s “2014 Draft Prospect Profiles“, which features scouting reports on Khalil Mack, Justin Gilbert, Kyle Van Noy and Davante Adams.
