This is the time of year where everyone tries to project which players a team should strongly consider. Yet when I’ve talked with NFL personnel people, one of the big things they try to do in this pre-Combine period is weed out players they don’t believe fit their teams.
In that spirit, I offer the Lions and GM Martin Mayhew some free advice. Here are four players that absolutely should not wind up in the Honolulu blue and silver in the 2015 NFL Draft.

DLD scout Paulo Figari visited a training facility in Florida and interviewed several 2015 NFL Draft prospects. One of those is former Kansas wideout Nigel King.
King is an early entrant to the draft, leaving the Jayhawks after one season following a transfer from Maryland. The 6’3″, 210 pound wideout caught 30 passes for 537 yards and a touchdown in Lawrence, following a 33-catch campaign in his sophomore year.
Hear King talk about his football influences, his off-field hobbies and what workout numbers he expects to post.
DLD’s Paulo Figari recently sat down with a few prospects to get some thoughts on the draft process, preparation, who was the toughest matchups and more.
First up is Tye Smith, a cornerback from Towson who showed enough to earn a Shrine Game berth. He held his own in St. Pete, and now he has earned a Combine invite as well.
Smith started every game in his final three years at Towson, breaking up 26 passes, pulling down 6 INTs and racking up over 250 tackles. He locked horns with the likes of Kevin White and Odell Beckham, so he’s not your typical FCS greenhorn. At Shrine Game weigh-ins, he surprised by weighing 191 pounds at 6’1″ after being listed at just 170 for the Tigers.
