All nine Detroit Lions' draft picks signed

  The Lions have signed all nine of their draft picks prior to three-day rookie minicamp which starts today.

  DE Ziggy Ansah, the first-round pick, leads the way with a four-year deal.

  The team announced today that they have signed the following to four-year contracts: CB Darius Slay (Round 2, 36th overall), G Larry Warford (Round 3, 65th overall),  DE Devin Taylor (Round 4, 132nd overall), P Sam Martin (Round 5, 137th overall), WR Corey Fuller (Round 6, 171st overall), RB Theo Riddick (Round 6, 199th overall), TE Michael Williams (Round 7, 211th overall) and LB Brandon Hepburn (Round 7, 245th overall).

Since the 2011 collective bargaining agreement there is a firm rookie wage scale which makes the signings easier.
