Detroit Lions Reportedly Have Met With Caleb King

According to Nate Caminata of Roar Report, The Sports Xchange's Len Pasquarelli is reporting that the Detroit Lions recently met with former Georgia running back Caleb King.

King is one of the six players eligible to be selected in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft, which will be held at 1 p.m. on Monday. King entered the Supplemental Draft after being declared ineligible by Georgia this summer for academic reasons.

Before being declared ineligible, King was expected to be Georgia's starter in 2011. In his first three years at Georgia he had a total of 1,271 rushing yards and 10 rushing touchdowns. He also had 126 receiving yards and one receiving touchdown.

Obviously a meeting doesn't mean the Lions will submit a pick for King in the Supplemental Draft. And even if they do submit a pick there's no guarantee they will get him. Since it's like a silent auction, the Lions could submit a seventh-round pick and another team could decide King is worth a sixth-rounder. The team with the higher pick actually gets the player, so nothing is guaranteed by any means in the Supplemental Draft.
