As Pro Days around the country culminate the non-football training portion of the draft process for many prospects, the Detroit Lions are starting to have players make the trek to Allen Park, Mich. for evaluations of their own.

On Monday, the team brought Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, a potential first round pick, in for a visit. The Lions stayed with the defensive theme Thursday as the team's official reporter said defensive end Larry Webster is at the facility.

Webster played at Division II Bloomsburg, where he was a third-team All-American as a senior after making 49 tackles, including 16 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks his final season. He had a season-high 10 tackles against Slippery Rock.

At the NFL combine in February, he measured at 6-foot-6 with 33 1/2-inch arms and 10 1/8 inch hands. He weighed in at 252 pounds, ran the 40-yard dash is 4.58 seconds, had a 36.5-inch vertical jump, a 12 foot, 3-inch broad jump and put up 17 repetitions on the bench press.

His three-cone drill was 7.29 seconds.

That 40-yard dash time was second to only Jadeveon Clowney (4.53 seconds) among defensive linemen, and his vertical jump was fifth among defensive linemen.

ESPN ranks him as the No. 15 defensive end in the draft and the No. 146 player overall.

From his Bloomsburg biography: His favorite cereal is Cookie Crisp, he prefers the Summer Olympics over the Winter Games, and his favorite holiday is Christmas. Webster is the son of Larry Webster Jr., who played in 136 NFL games, starting 36 and recording four sacks according to ProFootballReference.com.
