The Detroit Lions announced on the eve of mandatory minicamp that their entire 2019 NFL Draft class has been signed to their rookie deals. The last player to sign their contract, Boston College safety Will Harris, put pen to paper on Monday night:

Every year, the third-round pick takes a little extra to sign because there’s more wiggle room in the contract as set by the rookie wage scale portion of the CBA. Last year, Tracy Walker was the last Lions draft pick to sign a deal. The year before that, Kenny Golladay was the final piece of the rookie signing puzzle.

With Harris signed, the Lions now have 90 players all under contract for mandatory minicamp. Minicamp starts on Tuesday and runs through Thursday. All three days will be open to the media, so expect full practice recaps all this week. Stay tuned for updates on the Lions’ performance, injury news and the potential holdouts of Darius Slay and Damon Harrison Sr.
