Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew stepped to the podium on day 2 of the NFL Scouting Combine, but it was comments made during his private session with the beat writers that drew more attention.

Also available Friday were offensive linemen, running backs, wide receivers and quarterbacks.

  • Detroitlions.com lead writer Tim Twentyman speculated whether Alabama’s Chance Womack would become the first guard drafted in the top five since Bill Fralic in 1985.
  • Arkansas-Pine Bluff tackle Terron Armstead has potential with his athletic ability to be a mid-round selection for the Detroit Lions.
  • West Virginia’s Tavon Austin presents an intriguing option for the Lions as a triple-threat return man, wide receiver and running back.

Saturday’s availability will include more wide receivers and running backs, defensive linemen and linebackers. Offensive linemen will also begin on-field workouts.
