Even before Mikel Leshoure ran into legal trouble, the Detroit Lions were keeping an eye on running backs in the 2012 NFL Draft. With questions about the health of Leshoure and Jahvid Best and the uncertainty about if Kevin Smith can stay healthy, the Lions haven't closed the door on the possibility of adding another running back. Already they have hosted Oregon running back LaMichael James for a pre-draft visit, and they are planning on bringing in another running back from the Pac-12 next week.

Birkett reports that Coleman is also set to visit the Oakland Raiders and Seattle Seahawks.
