Add Miami TE Jimmy Graham to list of Lions' visitors

One other quick update here. While I was away (on furlough) last week, the Lions also hosted Miami TE Jimmy Graham for one of their 30 allotted pre-draft visits. Previously, they'd had Oregon TE Ed Dickson in here, too. With Casey FitzSimmons gone as a free agent -- and with Brandon Pettigrew rehabbing from a torn ACL -- they're obviously looking for another pass-catcher at that position.

And Graham's a big (6-6, 260) and intriguing, mid-round prospect. A four-year basketball player at Miami, he played football last season for the first time since his freshman year in high school. And he ended up having a good year (17 catches, 5 TDs), then caught a lot of people's attention -- including the Lions -- at the Senior Bowl in January.
