Detroit Lions Have Hosted Or Will Host Alex Green For Visit

The Detroit Lions have already hosted two running backs for a pre-draft visit, and they also worked out another. According to Rob Rang on CBSSports.com, another running back, Hawaii's Alex Green, has already visited or will visit the Lions in the near future.

In addition to the Lions, Green is drawing interest from the St. Louis Rams, Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans and Atlanta Falcons. He is reportedly set to visit all of these teams before the draft, suggesting his stock is rising. He showed off good speed at the combine and impressed scouts at the East-West Shrine Game, and he also rushed for 1,199 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2010. Considering how much Hawaii likes to pass, that's no small feat.

The running backs the Lions have previously shown interest in are Oklahoma's DeMarco Murray, Illinois' Mikel Leshoure and Miami's Damien Berry. Murray and Leshoure visited at the end of March and Berry privately worked out with the Lions at some point.
