Third-round pick Brodric Martin is the latest Lions draft pick to sign his first NFL contract.
Martin had 62 tackles, six tackles for loss, four sacks, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery while playing defensive tackle at Western Kentucky the last two years. The Lions traded up to take Martin with the 96th overall pick, which was a move that surprised him because he expected to be drafted on the third and final day of the draft.
Martin joins Alim McNeill, Levi Onwuzurike, John Cominsky, Isaiah Buggs, Josh Paschal, Benito Jones, and Christian Covington on the defensive line in Detroit.
The Lions also announced the signing of undrafted free agent wide receiver Dylan Drummond. Drummond tried out for the team at their rookie minicamp.
