Lions No Longer Trying to Hide Draft Prospects Visits

The Lions have been posting draft prospects visits on their web site which is something they have not done before according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press.

“The fact is, everybody in the league knows (whom we’re bringing in),” coach Jim Schwartz said during the NFL meetings last week. “So if everybody in the league knows, it really doesn’t matter. And if it’s interesting for the fans, … then I’m all for it.”

Schwartz said the Lions monitor other teams’ visit lists and factor what prospects go where in their draft preparations. But he warned not to read too much into those lists, pointing out, “We didn’t bring Jahvid Best in last year.” The Lions tried to hide their interest in Best last spring, then traded up to get him at the end of the first round on draft day.
