Maryland's Torrey Smith Latest Player To Visit Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions hosted another potential pick in the 2011 NFL Draft on Friday when Maryland wide receiver Torrey Smith came to town. The Lions are the first team Smith has visited with so far, and it shows they are on the lookout for a third wide receiver. Calvin Johnson and Nate Burleson are clearly the Lions' top two WRs, but after that there isn't necessarily much talent, at least not much talent that plays consistently well.

Smith had this to say about his visit:

"The first thing that I noticed was the city. I’ve never been to Detroit before, it’s a gorgeous city. The training facility is definitely top of the line, everything is great from the meeting rooms to the practice fields.

"I’ve had an opportunity to talk to everyone from the head coach, special teams coordinator, to the receivers coach and they all seem like great guys and all focus on one goal: winning. I feel like they want the best people to get it done."

Other players that have visited this week include Prince Amukamara, Cameron Jordan, Bruce Carter, Mike Pouncey and Greg Romeus.
