2012 NFL Draft: Dre Kirkpatrick Reportedly Planning To Visit Lions

The Detroit Lions began hosting prospects for pre-2012 NFL Draft visits last week. While these visits rarely reveal much about the Lions' plans for the draft, so far we've received a pretty good indication that the team is focusing on offensive linemen and defensive backs. For the offensive line, they have already hosted Brandon Brooks, Mike Adams and Kelechi Osemele. For the secondary, cornerback Josh Norman was brought in last week, and Alabama's Dre Kirkpatrick will visit at some point, according to Aaron Wilson.

The Lions are far from the only team interested in bringing in Kirkpatrick for a visit. He plans to take several visits in the next few weeks.

University of Alabama junior consensus All-American cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is scheduled to take 10 NFL visits, according to an NFL source.

Among others, the imposing first-round draft prospect is set to visit the Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Lions and the Tennessee Titans.

Kirkpatrick is definitely a player to keep an eye on for the Lions, because he is a candidate to be selected 23rd overall.
