The Detroit Lions are the first team to have their entire draft class under contract. That includes the No. 5 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft. DetroitLions.com reported on Friday that Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah signed a five-year contract. NFL.com's Albert Breer reported that there's no offset language in the contract, according to a source. Ansah is only the second first-round pick to sign, after the New Orleans Saints' Kenny Vaccaro inked a deal Thursday night. The Lions said after the draft that Ansah was rated third on their entire draft board, but that reportedly didn't stop them from trying to trade down to No. 8 with the Buffalo Bills. It's hard to imagine Ansah, as raw as it gets for a top pick, landing in a better spot.
