2012 NFL Combine: Plenty Of Possible Detroit Lions Prospects To Arrive In Offensive Line Heavy First Day

The opening day of the NFL Scouting Combine is usually more looked forward to just so that we can say that the combine has begun more than for the players who participate in it. There should be plenty of intrigue for the first day group of players for Detroit Lions fans, though.

Day one of the combine will feature the first three groups of players arriving at Indianapolis, but no actual drills will be done until day four as the first gang of players go through orientations, medical exams, interviews and the like for the first few days. The first three groups will consist of the special teams players, offensive lineman and tight ends.

There's not too many huge names in the group, as should probably be expected with those positions. Lions fans might want to keep their eye on the group of lineman, as there's names like Peter Konz and Glenn Cordy who have been repeatedly mock drafted to Detroit over and over again in recent weeks. Even if not one of those two, the idea of OL for the Lions in the first round has been trucking and will probably continue to so it'll be interesting to see who in the group can work their way up into late first round discussion, where the Lions will be selecting at 23rd overall.

Day two of the combine will provide the intriguing offensive skill players when the quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers arrive. Day three will provide most of the defensive players, and the defensive backs will show on day four.

Every player at the combine can be found on the official Invite List here.
