Lion possibilities affected by the combine

As much as we all like to think it shouldn't matter, players draft position changes after the season ends. The combine and workouts alter people's opinions on player's way more than most people think that it should. Below I am listing some players whose draft position I think mays have changed since the season ended. I am only listing positions that I think the Lions are most likely to concentrate on. Feel free to add your own or comment on my ideas, these are just my opinions.

Wide Receivers

Sammt Watkins has probably moved high enough that the Lions can't pick him without moving up.

Brandin Cooks was amazing at the combine and now will be tough to draft as he will go after the Lions 1st and before their 2nd.

Donte Moncreif has gone from slight unachiever to a 2nd or 3rd round pick, he is an interesting propect

Odell Beckham is just about like Cooks, but will go before Cooks

Allen Robinson has fallen out of the first round as has Matthews of Vanderbilt

WDeone Buchanon has risen up to probably 2nd round, and would be a nice pick for Detroit.

Pryor has caught HaHa as the best safeties and are 1st rounders.

Dion Bailey is now about a 3rd rounder with slower times in workouts

Cornerbacks

Gilbert has passed DennardIm and will be the 1st CB taken, I don't see Detroit picking a corner early. There is a lot of depth, many intriguing prospects to pick 3-5th round

Tight Ends

Eric Ebron is a possibility at 10, he has separated himself as the best this year, maybe the best in 5 years.

Troy nicklas has risen up and will be a 2nd rounder

Jenkins has had foot surgery and I think will fall in the draft. Teams to not like to pick guys who are currently rehabbing and jenkins is out 8 weeks or more. Was a first rounder, now is a third or fourth I bet.
