As usual, this list is not meant to be a complete overview of all the meetings the Lions had at the combine. The reality is they likely had countless other meetings that simply went unreported, especially at positions like linebacker, cornerback and safety. Since players at those positions didn't arrive until later in the week, meetings the Lions had with them simply didn't become public knowledge.
In any case, which players from the above list do you think the Lions should take a closer look at in the coming weeks?
