Lions agreed to terms with No. 245 overall pick LB Brandon Hepburn on a four-year, $2.205 million contract.

One of the final 10 picks of the draft, Hepburn was extremely productive in the FCS Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference, but is facing a daunting leap in competition in the NFL. His most likely home is the practice squad.

Lions selected Florida A&M LB Brandon Hepburn with the No. 245 overall pick.

Hepburn (6-foot-2 1/2, 240) paced FAMU in tackles (86) and sacks (5.5) as a senior, adding 9.5 tackles for loss, seven pass breakups, and a forced fumble. A former walk-on, Hepburn graduated with a degree in biochemistry and will have options if he doesn't make it in the pros. Hepburn ran 4.68 at the Combine with a 1.63 ten-yard split and did 21 reps on the bench. Making a huge leap in competition, Hepburn will have to earn his early-career stripes on special teams. He could develop into an outside rusher or strong-side linebacker down the road.
