Former all-district wide receiver and punter David Douglas visited Allen Park, Michigan and met with Detroit Lions officials on Wednesday. NFL teams are allowed to bring in 30 prospects to work out in preparation for the NFL Draft on April 26th-28th.
He has also worked out with the Dallas Cowboys, as you read on TSB right here.
Douglas, who measured in at 6-1, 205 pounds at his pro day at the University of Arizona last month, jumped into the sixth or seventh round discussions after clocking in at 4.39 in the 40-yard dash and measuring a vertical leap of 36 1/2 inches.
Douglas spoke with reporters after the workout about numerous topics, including his skill set and his high school memory of playing against current Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford. You can click here to read the full story.
Last year at Arizona, Douglas caught 65 receptions for 666 yards and 4 touchdowns. If Douglas is drafted to an NFL team in less than three weeks, he will be expected not only to compete at the receiver position but contribute on special teams as well.
