2013 NFL Draft: Lions host David Amerson for visit

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Lions brought in North Carolina State cornerback David Amerson for a pre-draft visit on Thursday.

Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher wasn't the only player in town on Thursday for a pre-draft visit with the Detroit Lions. North Carolina State cornerback David Amerson also visited the Lions on Thursday as preparations continued for the 2013 NFL Draft.

Amerson is a very interesting prospect because of how much he struggled in 2012. In 2011, he had 13 interceptions and was viewed as one of the nation's top cornerbacks. Last season, however, Amerson was burned quite frequently by opposing wide receivers. He still managed to record 5 interceptions, but his stock dropped quite a bit from where it was after the 2011 season.

Amerson has been talked about as a player who could be a safety at the next level, but he told Dave Birkett on Thursday that the Lions view him as a cornerback.

Amerson is someone to keep in mind for the second day of the draft. If the Lions don't take Dee Milliner with the fifth overall pick, Amerson could be an option in the second or third round as they look to bolster their secondary.
