Draft Pick Doug Hogue Signs With Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions have signed two of their five 2011 NFL Draft picks. Seventh-round pick Johnny Culbreath agreed to a deal on Wednesday night and planned to sign it on Thursday, and this afternoon fifth-round pick Doug Hogue, a linebacker from Syracuse, signed a deal of his own.

The Lions now have to sign first-round pick Nick Fairley and second-round picks Mikel Leshoure and Titus Young. The first practice isn't until tomorrow morning, so the Lions still have a pretty good amount of time to get something worked out with each of them.
