Tyron Smith To Visit Detroit Lions This Month

The Detroit Lions had offensive line coach George Yarno in attendance at USC's pro day earlier this week so he could get a look at offensive tackle Tyron Smith. Smith has jumped to the top of the offensive tackle rankings for the 2011 NFL Draft, and the general consensus seems to be that he will be the first OT selected.

Just last month it was assumed that Smith would be there for the Lions to pick with the 13th overall selection. Now it's looking more and more like he could be off the board before then, as indicated by the fact that he has visits set up with the following teams: Dallas Cowboys, Minnesota Vikings, Cleveland Browns, Washington Redskins, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Atlanta Falcons.

Smith is also set to visit the Lions in two weeks. An exact date wasn't mentioned in Jason La Canfora's report on Smith, but we do know that he will be off to Dallas on Monday. The Cowboys pick ninth in this year's draft, and it wouldn't be surprising if they select Smith.

In other news, Dave Birkett confirmed that the Lions will work out Lehigh offensive lineman Will Rackley next week (reportedly on April 5). He was already on the Lions NFL Draft visit (and workouts) tracker, but it has now been updated to include Smith.
