2012 NFL Draft: Lions Host David Douglas, Kevin Murphy For Visits

Wide receiver David Douglas #85 of the Arizona Wildcats celebrates with William Wright #19 after Douglas scored on a five-yard touchdown reception.

With the 2012 NFL Draft nearing, prospect visits are kicking into high gear, as evidenced by all of the activity in Allen Park this week. On Monday, the Detroit Lions hosted Illinois defensive end Whitney Mercilus. On Tuesday, the Lions brought in Nevada defensive end Kaelin Burnett and North Carolina linebacker Zach Brown. Today, Arizona wide receiver David Douglas and Harvard offensive tackle Kevin Murphy came to town for a visit.

Douglas played at Arizona for four seasons. He totaled 65 catches for 666 yards and four touchdowns during his senior season. During his career, he had 151 catches for 1,542 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Murphy hails from Harvard, the same school that produced Baltimore Ravens center Matt Birk.

"Matt and I have the same agent and I’ve been able to talk to him and just listen to his side of things," Murphy said. "Not a lot of people associate Harvard football with the NFL and talking with him gave me more confidence than anything."

Murphy was a left tackle at Harvard and seems like a player who would be a very good late-round pick or undrafted free agent.
