Lions host Deone Bucannon for pre-draft visit

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Detroit Lions brought in Washington State safety Deone Bucannon on Wednesday for a pre-draft visit.

The Detroit Lions continued their pre-draft visits on Wednesday by hosting another safety. Previously, they brought in Alabama's Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, and Washington State's Deone Bucannon stopped by on Wednesday.

Bucannon racked up some pretty impressive numbers at Washington State. Last season, he had 114 total tackles, and he picked off 6 passes and forced 3 fumbles. Over the course of his four-year career at Washington State, he had 15 total interceptions and 7 total forced fumbles, and he also recorded a total of 13.5 tackles for loss.

Although the Lions recently signed James Ihedigbo to help fill their need at safety, he isn't a long-term solution at that position. As a result, it's likely that the Lions will draft a safety this year, and it's certainly possible that they could spend a second-rounder on Bucannon. He wouldn't necessarily have to start immediately with Ihedigbo already in place, and the Lions would get some added flexibility in the secondary by adding a guy like Bucannon.

With Bucannon coming in on Wednesday, the Lions have now used four of their 30 pre-draft visits. Previously, Clinton-Dix, Bloomsburg defensive end Larry Webster and Michigan offensive tackle Taylor Lewan stopped by to visit with the Lions.
