Ras-I Dowling Visits Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions hosted another cornerback for a visit when Virginia's Ras-I Dowling came to town on Wednesday. He joins Colorado's Jimmy Smith and Nebraska's Prince Amukamara as cornerbacks who have visited the Lions. Smith was in town on March 11 and Amukamara visited on March 15.

Here is what Dowling had to say about his visit and getting to see the Lions' facility:

"This facility is really nice. This is my first time being in Detroit, and it’s real nice to be out here. It’s been a great experience, it’s all been exciting and it’s really a blessing to be in this spot. I’m just taking it all in and letting the chips fall."

Earlier this week, Lions defensive backs coach Tim Walton was in attendance for Virginia's pro day to get a look at Dowling. The Virginia cornerback has eight total visits scheduled counting the one he had with the Lions yesterday.
