Report: Dre Kirkpatrick has 10 visits lined up

2012 NFL Combine Getty Images

The NFL world is focused on Peyton Manning and other free agents right now, but the draft is right around the corner.

Alabama cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick is one of the players expected to go on the first day of the draft and we’re starting to get an idea about which teams might be interested in adding him to their secondary. Scout.com reports that Kirkpatrick has lined up visits with 10 NFL teams before the draft gets underway on April 26th.

The Bills, Cowboys, Jaguars, Vikings, Buccaneers, Ravens, Lions and Titans are listed as eight of the teams that will meet with Kirkpatrick. Morris Claiborne of LSU is expected to be the first cornerback off the board with Kirkpatrick and North Alabama’s Janoris Jenkins believed to be contending for the second spot on team’s lists.

Kirkpatrick didn’t blow anyone away with his combine workouts, but his production on the field with the Crimson Tide was quite good. He also has the kind of size — 6’2″, 192 pounds — that teams covet on the edges. One potential red flag on Kirkpatrick was alleviated when marijuana possession charges against him were dropped last month.

    Charges were dropped so the concerns were alleviated? If u had concerns before, you still do, but I don’t think many teams are too worried. Megatron admitted he smoked pot in college, he seems alright.

    The better question is what Ozzie is smoking unless he’s planning on trading up.

    Pacman 2.0

    Bill Clinton smoked it too…..so did Warren Sapp, along with MANY, MANY other MULTI-MILLIONAIRES

    I agree ^ Kirkpatrick to Baltimore doesn’t make much sense to me.

    Don’t ever question Ozzie…check out where Ray lewis….Ed Reed….Ray Rice….Torrey Smith….Todd Heap….Lardarius Webb….and a host of others were drafted.
    Ozzie does OK…stupid drafting teams always allow probowlers to fall into our laps.

    Ravens???? No way we get him unless we trade a lot to move up.

    Ok? Why list only 8 when the headline and opening clearly say 10? Who are the other 2? Is a lack of math skills (counting) a requirement to work for nbcsports.com? Seems common place on here

    waccoforflacco, I’m questioning Ozzie’s reasoning for thinking Dre will be there at 29, unless he’s trading up.

    At 6-2, Vikings need to get him if he lands in the second round. Someone needs to stop Calvin…AND NOW Marshall.

  15. buffalose says: Mar 19, 2012 5:42 PM

    Buffalo might trade back, or eye him in the second. No way 10th over all. doing

    marijuana charges…he must be a HORRIBLE person/athlete. Michael Phelps, Percy Harvin, Mark Stepnoski, Ricky Williams, Calvin Johnson, Randy Moss….all garbage

  17. buffalose says: Mar 19, 2012 6:26 PM

    Its ning that he smoked, it’s that he did it knowing it could change what scouts thought if him,

    If at first you dont succeed…Perhaps you shouldn’t try skidiving. LEGALIZE IT!

    Where are u getting ur info from? Calvin Johnson never tested positive for marijuana use

    Geno334…you think a 6″2 corner is suited for possibly the two biggest wide recievers. Even little tifus ylung is taller
