2012 NFL Draft: Lions Host TCU DE Braylon Broughton For Visit

ALBUQUERQUE NM - NOVEMBER 27: Braylon Broughton #99 Stansly Maponga #90 (C) and Jurell Thompson #16 of the TCU Horned Frogs celebrate after a touchdown against the University of New Mexico Lobos.

The Detroit Lions held another pre-2012 NFL Draft visit on Monday. They brought in Braylon Broughton, who played defensive end at TCU. He is the first prospect to visit the Lions who isn't an offensive linemen or cornerback.

Broughton spoke with the Lions' official site about his time at TCU and talked quite candidly about how he didn't realize his potential while in college. He said that he should've spent more time learning the defense, and it sounds like he plans on operating differently at the next level.

"I have the talent, I just have to put all the knowledge on the field at one time and that kind of held me back a little bit."

When asked what his biggest asset would be to whatever team drafts him, Broughton said: "A lot of potential that hasn't been tapped yet."

Broughton is the fifth prospect to visit the Lions so far. They have previously brought in Miami OL Brandon Brooks, Ohio State OT Mike Adams, Iowa State OT Kelechi Osemele and Coastal Carolina CB Josh Norman.

On Monday, we learned that Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is scheduled to visit the Lions, and it turns out he is actually in town right now for a visit that will take place on Tuesday.
