Crabtree, Lions talked on Thursday

The Lions are simply doing their diligence. Unless Matt Millen returns as general manager, there's no way they take a receiver with the first pick of the draft. But receivers coach Shawn Jefferson did meet with the draft's top pass catcher, Texas Tech's Michael Crabtree, on Thursday.

“One thing he told me is he has a beast right now but he wants a beast on the other side,” Crabtree said Friday at the NFL scouting combine. “That's about all we talked about.”

Besides Calvin Johnson, the Lions have a bunch of No. 3 and 4 receivers on their roster. They'll look to add a true No. 2 sometime in the draft if they don't sign a quality receiver in free agency.
