The Detroit Lions were scheduled to host Texas Tech safety Cody Davis, one of the standouts at last weekend’s Super Regional Combine in Dallas, on a predraft visit this week.
The visit, which was to take place either Wednesday or today, was first reported by SiriusXM NFL Radio host Alex Marvez.
Davis, a four-year starter at Texas Tech, reportedly ran a 40-yard dash in the 4.3s at the Super Regional Combine, faster than any safety at the NFL combine in February.
His standout performance came a few days after he got married, said his agent, Jerry Marlatt.
The Lions are still in need of help at safety, despite signing Glover Quin in free agency and re-signing Louis Delmas last month.
Delmas has struggled to stay healthy the last two years. The Lions’ other backup safeties include Don Carey, Tyrell Johnson, Ricardo Silva and John Wendling.
Carey and Johnson signed as free agents midway through last season, Silva spent part of the last two seasons on the practice squad, and Wendling is primarily a special teams player.
