Lions host Washington DT Danny Shelton on draft visit
Four years ago, the Detroit Lions brought in Nick Fairley for a late visit when it seemed like the onetime top prospect might fall to their spot in the middle of the first round of the NFL draft.
Fairley did, and the Lions took him 13th overall.
Danny Shelton’s draft stock has been the topic of similar debate for entirely different reasons in recent
weeks, and the Washington nose tackle said on his verified Twitter account last night that he’s making a predraft visit to Detroit.
“Headed to Detroit soon, overnight flights are the best no long lines at checkin. Son @ShaqThompson_7 is 21 too, I’m getting old,” Shelton wrote, referring to his Huskies teammate Shaq Thompson.
