DraftWatch2011: Amukamara's speed work
By Kevin Seifert
Missouri quarterback Blaine Gabbert might or might not be available at the No. 12 overall pick in the 2011 draft, where the Minnesota Vikings are positioned. But that didn't stop us from giving you a look inside Gabbert's training regimen. Likewise, the Detroit Lions' position at No. 13 overall won't keep us from offering a look at Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara's efforts to improve his speed.
Scouts Inc. rates Amukamara as the No. 8 prospect in the draft, and both Mel Kiper Jr. and Todd McShay have projected him as a top-10 pick. But the Lions arguably need help at cornerback more than any other position, and if they like Amukamara enough, he could be within reach of a draft-day trade.
