Lions host Stanley Jean-Baptiste for pre-draft visit

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Detroit Lions brought in Nebraska cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste for a pre-draft visit on Monday.

It turns out that USC center Marcus Martin wasn't the only player who visited the Detroit Lions on Monday. The Lions also brought in Nebraska cornerback Stanley Jean-Baptiste, according to Tim Twentyman.

Jean-Baptiste is an intriguing prospect because of his size. He measured in at 6'3 at the NFL Combine, and he recorded a 41.5-inch vertical jump. He's one of the biggest cornerbacks in this year's draft class, and from a size standpoint, he's exactly what the Lions are looking for.

As a senior at Nebraska last season, Jean-Baptiste had 41 tackles, 4 interceptions (for 1 touchdown) and 12 passes defended. This came after he had 24 tackles, 2 interceptions (for 1 touchdown) and 11 passes defended in 2012. He figures to be a second-day pick, and he could be an option for the Lions in the second or third round depending on how long he stays on the board.

Jean-Baptiste is the second cornerback known to have visited the Lions, by the way. Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller stopped by last week, and the Lions are planning to bring in Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert and Maryland's Dexter McDougle later this week.
