Chance Warmack's visit with Lions was 'very impressive,' according to report

USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions' visit with Alabama offensive guard Chance Warmack on Monday reportedly went extremely well.

Alabama offensive guard Chance Warmack visited the Detroit Lions on Monday. Typically, all we really hear about pre-draft visits involving the Lions is that the player was there. That's it. On Tuesday, however, Jason La Canfora reported that the Lions came away with a very positive impression of Warmack following the visit.

Considering we're just a couple weeks away from the 2013 NFL Draft, I'm taking the above tweet as a smokescreen on the part of the Lions. I don't doubt that Warmack impressed them, but that's not the type of information that leaks out by accident. The Lions likely want other NFL teams to be aware that they like Warmack. Why? I suppose that information could come in handy if a potential trade is in the works on draft day, although I'm not exactly sure how.

In any case, this is just a reminder to take everything you hear this time of the year with a grain of salt, especially when it involves the Lions. They are known for being very secretive, so I can't imagine they would leak out their positive impression of Warmack's visit without an ulterior motive.
