Wide receiver Ryan Broyles, a second-round selection, is among five of the Detroit Lions' eight draft picks who had agreed to terms on four-year contracts as of Thursday afternoon.
The Lions, who begin a three-day rookie mini-camp on Friday, confirmed the deals on their website.
The other players who had reached an agreement are defensive end Ronnell Lewis (fourth round), linebacker Tahir Whitehead (fifth round), cornerback Chris Greenwood (fifth round) and linebacker Travis Lewis (seventh round).
The Lions were still working on deals with offensive tackle Riley Reiff (first round), cornerback Bill Bentley (third round) and cornerback Jonte Green (sixth round).
All eight of the teams's draft picks are expected to participate in the mini-camp, even if their contract negotiations haven't been completed.
