2011 NFL Draft Visit Tracker - Detroit Lions

Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara is one of many players to visit the Detroit Lions.
Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara is one of many players to visit the Detroit Lions.

Free agency may be at a standstill right now due to the NFL lockout, but preparations for the 2011 NFL Draft continue. Pro days are ongoing, as are prospect visits. Each team gets to host 30 non-local players that are in the draft pool (local players don't count against the number), and the Detroit Lions are taking full advantage of the visits already, as there has been a flurry of activity lately.

Just like last year, it's about that time to put together a visit tracker in order to keep all of the names of players that come to Allen Park organized. I stress that this list is not comprehensive, because every visit/workout will not necessarily be reported on. Also, visits do not mean that the Lions will draft a player, just as a player not visiting doesn't mean he won't be drafted by the Lions. In any case, it's interesting to see which players are brought in, so without further ado, after the jump is a list of the players that have already visited with the Lions or are scheduled to in the future.
