Lions bring in Kyle Fuller, Kevin Pierre-Louis for pre-draft visits

Paul Frederiksen-US PRESSWIRE

Add two more defensive players to the list of pre-draft visits for the Detroit Lions.

North Carolina tight end Eric Ebron wasn't the only player who took a pre-draft visit with the Detroit Lions on Monday. According to the Free Press' Dave Birkett, the Lions also played host to Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller. He is one of current Lions wide receiver Corey Fuller's brothers, and Kyle is the first cornerback known to have visited the Lions in advance of this year's draft.

At Virginia Tech, Fuller battled through a sports hernia during much of his senior year, and he ended up having surgery to repair the injury in November. This kept him out of the Senior Bowl, but his stock has actually gone up quite a bit in recent weeks. He was originally viewed as a likely second-round pick, but a lot of analysts think he will end up being taken in the first round. Actually, one recent mock draft from Rotoworld has the Lions taking Fuller 10th overall, although that seems highly, highly unlikely.

In other visit news, Birkett reports that Boston College linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis stopped by at some point last week. This visit originally went unreported, but we now know that the Lions took a closer look at Pierre-Louis, who had 108 total tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 6.0 sacks and 1 interception as a senior at Boston College in 2013. As far as we know, he is the first linebacker prospect to visit the Lions this year.

One other piece of visit news via Birkett: Maryland cornerback Dexter McDougle is scheduled to visit the Lions next week.

UPDATE: It turns out that Fuller visited on Tuesday, not Monday.
