Lions draft outlook: Cornerbacks

By Michael Rothstein

The all-star games are over. The combine, which is the next area for potential draftees to prove something, is less than a month away.

Many of the players selected in May’s draft will come from these three all-star games or from underclassmen who decided the time was right to turn professional. Over the next two weeks, pairing with our position outlook series, we’ll offer a quick preview and look back at some names to become familiar with over the next four months as the NFL draft process crawls along.

Today continues with cornerbacks. This is a position of high need for the Lions. Expect them to go after a top cornerback in the draft.

I'm also changing the format of this a little bit since the all-star games have concluded.

Previous looks: Quarterbacks; running backs; wide receivers; tight ends; offensive tackles; interior linemen; defensive ends; defensive tackles; linebackers.
