The Detroit Lions have been meeting with plenty of potential draft picks and usually, those visits are reported by actual news outlets.
Well, this report is a little different as cornerback prospect Lonnie Johnson has sent out a photo which shows the doors to the Lions facility.

Though Johnson is solid against the run, he does not exactly fit the mold of a playmaker as he did not have a single interception during his time at Kentucky.
Johnson is big, athletic, and rangy. I like him.
He is not, however, a playmaker. Ball skills isn't a strength. 1 career interception, 1 career forced fumble. Only 9 career pass deflections.
For comparison, Nevin Lawson had 9 or more PD 3 of his 4 college seasons. https://t.co/weoPBYky9w

Depending on where you look, Johnson is expected to be drafted in the second or third round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
