Lions Draft Picks 2011: Titus Young Signs

The Detroit Lions have added wide receiver Titus Young to the list of 2011 NFL Draft picks that have been signed. Early Thursday morning they got a deal done with seventh-round pick Johnny Culbreath, and Thursday afternoon they signed fifth-round pick Doug Hogue. Second-round pick Mikel Leshoure signed Thursday evening, and Young, a fellow second-rounder, signed shortly after.

With four draft picks signed, the only unsigned one is first-round selection Nick Fairley. While there is no indication of if a deal is close, I would expect Fairley to sign before Friday's practice based on what he said on Wednesday.

"It’d probably be a setback coming in as my first year," Fairley said. "So hopefully like I said they can hurry up and get it done so I don’t miss no days and I don’t miss no meetings."

The Lions' first practice starts at 10:15 a.m. on Friday, so as long as Fairley signs before then he won't miss much.
