(Pontiac, Michigan-AP) -- A former player at Oklahoma is wearing a Detroit Lions uniform today. The Lions completed a deal with their first round selection, guard Stockar McDougle, on Saturday. The six foot, six inch 350 lb. Guard went 20th overall out of Oklahoma in this year's draft.

The Lions have now signed all five remaining 2000 college draftees. Training camp opened Monday. The Lions have only one veteran still without a deal --defensive end Robert Porcher. Lions management planned to begin negotiations Monday with Porcher and agent Ricky Lefft. They hope to reach an agreement in time for Porcher to take part in the first full-squad workout Thursday.
