Thursday Notes: Ndamukong Suh to Visit Lions Today

  • Mike O'Hara got word from Ndamukong Suh's agent (interestingly, Suh's agent is former Lions linebacker Roosevelt Barnes) that the defensive tackle will be visiting with the Lions today in Allen Park.  Russell Okung visited earlier this week, and Gerald McCoy's visit was set for yesterday.  Suh's arrival to Allen Park will cap off a big week of visits with players that could potentially be selected with the second overall pick.  In the coming weeks more potential picks will head to Allen Park, as the Lions will still have 27 visits to use before the draft.
  • Larry Foote backtracked a bit on Wednesday and tried to clear up his earlier comments that were viewed as a shot at the Lions.  You can be the judge of his reasoning for the comments and decide for yourself what you think of them, but Foote did say something that we've been thinking all this time.
    "They were evaluating me the whole time, and I was evaluating them," Foote said. "I guess it was a mutual decision. I didn't really fit into the defense, didn't feel like it suited my game. And I'm quite sure the coaches saw it that way, too."
    I wish Foote would have just said that from the start, but whatever.  Like I said yesterday, it's time to move on to other things.
  • New Lions quarterback Shaun Hill is okay with being a backup.
  • Toby Gerhart reportedly scored a 30 on the Wonderlic test.  C.J. Spiller was on the opposite end of the spectrum, as he reportedly scored a 10.
  • A couple administrative things: 1) Things have been so busy that I haven't yet had a chance to put together profiles on the Lions' acquisitions, but I still plan to post them at some point when I get a chance. 2) Look for info on the second annual Pride of Detroit community mock draft next week.  We are inching closer and closer to April, so I figure it's probably time to start planning the community mock draft so we can get it started in the near future.
