2011 NFL Mock Draft: Detroit Is Thrilled to See Prince Amukamara at No. 13
Could the Lions be Lucky Enough to See Prince Amukamara Fall to Them?
The Detroit Lions would be the most foolish franchise in the history of sports to pass up Prince Amukamara if he falls to them here. One of their most glaring needs is at cornerback and he could end up being the next great one.
Amukamara lived up to the hype with an outstanding showing at the combine. He not only ran a sub 4.4 40-time but he also looked great in his position drills. He showed the ability to turn and run with receivers and he showed great change of direction.
Although Amukamara’s stats were non-existent this year at Nebraska but the reason for that was because opposing coaches told their quarterbacks not to even test him. He didn’t have many opportunities to show his skill this year.
With all of the outstanding quarterbacks in the Lions division I think they would be looking for a quality cornerback that could at least put some fear in the eyes of opponents. Amukamara would absolutely be that guy.
