2012 NFL Draft: Lions Host Derrick Coleman, Isaiah Frey For Visits

The Detroit Lions brought in two more players today for visits as they continue to get ready for the 2012 NFL Draft. One of the visitors was UCLA running back Derrick Coleman. News of his visit came out a couple weeks ago, although it wasn't known specifically when he was planning on visiting. Today's other visitor was Nevada cornerback Isaiah Frey.

One of the interesting things about Coleman is that he has had a hearing disability most of his life. He hasn't let it get in the way of his career, however, and he actually thinks of it as an advantage in a sense.

"I don’t have to focus a little more. I have to focus a lot more," Coleman said. "It’s a huge advantage to me. Almost 80 percent of the time I already know what the quarterback is going to audible to because I have to get with them before because I might not be able to hear the call at the last second. I already know if it’s this play he’s going to change it to either this or this and I have to know why.
