Lions host Dion Jordan, three others for pre-draft visits

Harry How

The Detroit Lions hosted Oregon's Dion Jordan and three other players for pre-draft visits on Tuesday.

The Detroit Lions have just about used up their 30 pre-draft visits. With four more players being brought in to visit with the Lions on Tuesday, the team has now had 27 pre-draft visits that we know about. There could be others that were kept under wraps or are scheduled to take place on Wednesday.

The visits on Tuesday involved Oregon defensive end Dion Jordan, Mississippi State cornerback Darius Slay, Central Florida running back Latavius Murray and Clemson safety Jonathan Meeks. Of those four players, Jordan and Slay are the two headliners.

Jordan is expected to be a top-10 pick in this year's draft. If he's still available when the Lions go on the clock with the fifth overall pick, he could be taken to fill their need at defensive end. There have been questions about if he would actually fit in a 4-3 defense as a defensive end, but this seems to indicate that teams are open to the idea:

As for Slay, the other notable visitor on Tuesday, he could end up being a first-round pick. If he isn't taken in the first round, he could be a target of the Lions at the start of the second round.
