Lions Bringing In OT Russell Okung For A Visit

Previously it had appeared the Redskins would be the biggest competition if the Chiefs were interested in OT Russell Okung. The Redskins are in need of an offensive tackle and the assumption was that the first two picks in the draft would be the big defensive tackles -- Ndamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy.

That may still be the case but thanks to a report from NFL.com last week, Okung to the Lions is now on everyone's radar.

Our friends over at Pride of Detroit are waving the caution flag if you're making broad assumptions about Okung's visit to Detroit.

Before anybody takes Okung's visit as a sign that the Lions are drafting him or something like that, just remember that he is only one of 30 players that can come to Allen Park for a visit.  What's more, Gerald McCoy is alreadyscheduled to visit on Thursday following his arrival on Wednesday night, and you can bet other top prospects will make their way to Allen Park at some point in the next month or so as well.

Very true.

Also keep in mind that teams do bring in other players they're not interested in to throw other teams off their scent. So basically it's all a chess game at this point.
