Detroit Lions Host Prince Amukamara, Cameron Jordan For Visit

Defensive back Prince Amukamara of Nebraska runs with the football during the 2011 NFL Scouting Combine at Lucas Oil Stadium.

The Detroit Lions' official site reports that the team hosted Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara and California defensive end Cameron Jordan for a visit on Tuesday. Both players could potentially be selected by the Lions with the 13th overall pick of the 2011 NFL Draft in April if they're available.

Each player was asked about possibly playing for the Lions' defense. Amukamara's response unsurprisingly revolved around former Nebraska teammate and current Detroit Lion Ndamukong Suh.

"As a DB, I should be licking my chops to go out there. I played with Suh at Nebraska and he made the games and life a lot easier for me."

"Just with the whole line, they’re able to get to the quarterback so quick. The ball has to come out quick, which would take a lot of pressure off me."

Jordan was impressed by the Lions' defensive line as well. As a defensive end, he is obviously intrigued by the possiblity of playing for the Lions.

"From what I’ve seen, it looks like an amazing group. Just from their perspective of attacking, true attacking, and reacting to the run."

Player visits will continue throughout the rest of the month as the Lions make their final preparations for the NFL Draft.
