Lions Draft Picks 2011: Mikel Leshoure, Doug Hogue Get Their Deals Done

The Detroit Lions have signed their second and third draft picks of the day: Syracuse linebacker Doug Hogue and Illinois running back Mikel Leshoure. Hogue, a fifth-round draft pick, signed his deal Thursday afternoon, as first reported by his agency.

Congratulations to DEC MANAGEMENT client for officially signing his 5th round contract with the Detroit Lions

Leshoure agreed to terms on his deal a few hours later and broke the news on Twitter.

Agreed to terms. Ready to get to work. Looking forward to a great season and career with the Lions.

Dave Birkett reports that Leshoure is en route to the Lions' team facility in Allen Park right now. Once he arrives he will officially sign his deal, leaving the Lions with two rookies to sign: first-round pick Nick Fairley and second-round pick Titus Young. Both players are hoping to get signed before the first practice on Friday, so look for talks to progress on Thursday night.
