Less than two weeks since the NFL Draft, the Detroit Lions have now signed six of their eight picks.
The latest to reach a deal is third-round selection Travis Swanson, a 6-foot-5, 312-pound offensive lineman from Arkansas. Swanson, who has been working at both center and guard during the Lions' off-season practices, confirmed the agreement with a photo of him signing the contract posted Thursday afternoon on Instagram.
"I am officially a Lion!!" Swanson wrote.
The only two draft picks who haven't signed yet are the team's top two selections -- tight end Eric Ebron and linebacker Kyle Van Noy -- both of whom are still participating in practices and workouts.
