Detroit Lions Draft Pick Johnny Culbreath Agrees To Deal

One down; four to go.

The Detroit Lions agreed to terms with their first 2011 NFL Draft pick on Wednesday night: South Carolina State offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath. The seventh-round selection agreed to a four-year deal, and he plans to sign it on Thursday, just in time for the start of training camp.

With Culbreath taken care of, the Lions can now focus on getting Nick Fairley, Mikel Leshoure, Titus Young and Doug Hogue signed. Young is hoping to have his deal done by Friday (the first day of practice), as is Fairley, who was dropped off at the Lions' facility on Wednesday in a limo with Lawrence Jackson and Paul Pratt.

"I feel like it’ll be done" in time for camp, Fairley said of his deal after arriving by limousine at the Lions’ Allen Park practice facility this evening. "Hopefully they’ll get it done fast so I can be out there."

Fairley went on to say that he would consider it a setback if he missed any time, so it sounds like he is anxious to get signed and hit the practice field.
