The Detroit Lions became the second team to come to terms with a first-round draft and in doing so the first team to have all of its 2013 selections under contract.

The team announced on its Web site this morning that BYU defensive end Ziggy Ansah, the fifth overall pick, has signed a five-year contract. He follows on the heels of New Orleans Saints safety Kenny Vaccaro, who became the first rounder to do a deal on Thursday night.

Adding Ansah to the mix means the Lions now have all nine draft picks signed, sealed and delivered. The others are cornerback Darius Slay, guard Larry Warford, defensive end Devin Taylor, punter Sam Martin, receiver Corey Fuller, running back Theo Riddick, tight end Michael Williams and linebacker Brandon. The team starts rookie minicamp today.
