2012 NFL Draft: Lions Host Ohio State OT Mike Adams For Visit

The Detroit Lions continued their pre-2012 NFL Draft visits on Wednesday by hosting Ohio State offensive tackle Mike Adams. Like Iowa State offensive tackle Kelechi Osemele, who visited on Tuesday, Adams has been previously predicted to be taken by the Lions in an NFL mock draft. Specifically, Todd McShay had Adams going to Detroit in his latest mock draft.

Adams' visit came at an interesting time. Calvin Johnson was in town to sign his new contract, and Adams got a chance to meet him. As you can imagine, that was a pretty cool experience for Adams.

"Actually, Calvin Johnson was the first person I saw when I walked into the facility," Adams told Detroitlions.com. "As a football fan, that was pretty cool to be able to meet him."

Adams didn't have a great combine, and he admitted it "wasn't as good as" he wanted it to be. Even so, he was able to improve his bench press to 21 reps at his pro day (he did 19 reps at the combine), and he feels that watching his game tape is more important in evaluating him than things like his 40-yard dash time anyway.
