In addition to meeting with the Lions at the NFL Combine, Cameron Dantzler (CB, Mississippi State) has also reportedly met with the Lions virtually. At 6-2, 188 pounds and comfortable in press coverage Dantzler could be an option for the Lions on Day 2 if they don’t end up selecting Jeff Okudah in the first round. The biggest obstacle to a Lions-Dantzler marriage is questions surrounding his long speed, as he ran a 4.64 40-yard-dash at the Combine, but recent reports have him running much faster at a modified Pro Day.
Additionally, the Lions have also reportedly met with Michigan offensive lineman Michael Onwenu. Onwenu (6-3, 344 pounds) is a mauling right guard whose game is drenched in power and would be a natural fit for what the Lions are currently looking for in a run blocker. Currently, he is projected as a draft and develop prospect that could be available in the middle rounds of Day 3.
