03:44 PM ET 03.28 | The Detroit Lions have been busy hosting a multitude of draft prospects from Onterio McCalebb to Justin Hunter. Anwar S. Richardson of MLive.com is reporting that in-state draft prospect Eric Fisher and cornerback David Amerson are in Allen Park today for pre-draft visits with the Detroit Lions. Central Michigan's Eric Fisher is viewed by some as the top tackle prospect in the draft, but I still have him at second beyond Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel, who seems like a near sure pick for the Kansas City Chiefs with the first pick. Fisher is an excellent tackle in his own right and started to rise up draft boards into a clear top ten ranking, so he could be a great fit for the Lions after the Indianapolis Colts picked up Gosder Cherilus. However, some scouts believe that the Lions won't be able to take him, because the Philadelphia Eagles seem to have their eyes set on an upgrade at tackle with Eric Fisher in mind. We'll see what happens there, but Fisher is definitely going to be a strong candidate for the Lions in the first round. David Amerson had an excellent sophomore season for the North Carolina State Wolfpack, but he regressed last season as a junior. Some believe Amerson is best fit at safety, but he ran an excellent 40 time at the 2013 NFL Combine and wants to play cornerback in college.

Detroit needs OL and a S so that means they'll draft neither of these players in the first round.
