Lions send LB coach Kelvin Sheppard to Texas Longhorns pro day

The first major program pro day took place on Thursday in Autin, Texas. The Texas Longhorns held a workout for 10 aspiring NFL players from the program.

The Detroit Lions might have tipped their hand on who they were checking out at the Longhorns event by who the team dispatched. Linebackers coach Kelvin Sheppard was there, presumably watching LB DeMarvion Overshown go through his workout.

Generally projected as a third or fourth-round prospect, Overshown is a 6-foot-4, 220-pound speed-in-space type of backer. He had previously met with the Lions during Senior Bowl week and informally at last week’s scouting combine.

Overshown did not disappoint in his workout:

The top Longhorns prospect, RB Bijan Robinson, did not work out. Among the other prospects of Lions interest are RB Roschon Johnson, DT, Keondre Coburn and DT Moro Ojomo.
