Aaron Wilson is reporting that the Lions hosted UCLA DE/OLB Takkarist McKinley for a visit this week.
McKinley has reported visited with the Cowboys, Falcons, Saints, Panthers, Browns, Steelers, Ravens and Bengals, so there appears to be plenty of interest in him.
It’s worth mentioning that McKinley had surgery to repair a torn labrum and broken glenoid in his shoulder.
McKinley is considered to be one of the best rushers this year’s draft class and should end up being a first-round selection when all is said and done.
During his college career at UCLA, McKinley recorded 99 tackles, 28 tackles for a loss, 16 sacks, 10 pass defenses, a fumble recovery and six forced fumbles.
We have him being selected by the Packers in the First Round of our 2017 NFL Mock Draft.
