Lions host Justin Gilbert for pre-draft visit, also met with Davante Adams

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert visited the Detroit Lions on Thursday, and Fresno State wide receiver Davante Adams previously stopped by to meet with the team.

The Detroit Lions are starting to wrap up their pre-draft visits for 2014, and they brought in another potential option for the 10th overall pick on Thursday: Oklahoma State cornerback Justin Gilbert.

Gilbert has been the most popular pick for the Lions at No. 10 in mock drafts all offseason. He is viewed as the top cornerback in the 2014 NFL Draft by most, which is why so many mocks have the Lions taking him. Because they need to improve their play at the cornerback position, many people believe Gilbert makes the most sense for the Lions in the first round.

During his visit on Thursday, Gilbert actually got a chance to watch the Lions practice alongside their vice president of football operations.

Gilbert's visit on Thursday apparently wasn't the first time he's met with the Lions, by the way.

In other pre-draft visit news, the Lions hosted Fresno State wide receiver Davante Adams at some point, according to DraftInsider.net. It's not clear when exactly he stopped by, but he's the 26th player known to have visited the Lions in advance of the draft. (Up to 30 pre-draft visits are allowed.)
