Vikings signed Eastern Illinois WR Erik Lora.
Lora (5-foot-10 3/8, 203) was Jimmy Garoppolo's go-to guy, setting school records in catches (332), yards (4,006), and receiving scores (35) as the EIU Panthers' slot receiver. He clocked 4.48 at his March Pro Day, adding a 36-inch vertical and 9-foot-11 broad jump. Although not an overwhelmingly explosive player, Lora has the build and soft hands necessary to keep the chains moving inside the numbers. He will fight with Lestar Jean for a roster spot in Minnesota. Sun, May 11, 2014 02:23:00 PM

Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett reports that the Lions will host Eastern Illinois WR Erik Lora for a pre-draft visit on Friday.

While Lora's teammate, Jimmy Garoppolo, may get all the press these days, it's Lora who the Lions will be paying attention to on Friday. Lora had a storied career for the Panthers setting an FCS record as a junior with 136 catches for 1,664 yards. Last season Lora had a strong senior season hauling in 123 catches for 1,544 yards and 19 touchdowns. Lora was at his best working from the slot and hopefully he'll get an opportunity at the next level to showcase his strengths. Lora is projected to be a late-round pick.

Eastern Illinois WR Erik Lora ran two forty times of 4.53 and 4.59 seconds at Northwestern's Pro Day.

Lora attended the East-West Shrine game and does his best work from the slot. He shows up early and often when watching Jimmy Garoppolo's tape, but Lora is unlikely to be anything more than a sixth- or seventh-round prospect.
