ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — When the Detroit Lions ended their mandatory minicamp, some veterans sprinted off the field and toward the locker room to begin a long break before training camp.

Detroit’s drafted rookies were not in a rush. They’re not going anywhere soon.

Lions senior director of player development Galen Duncan gathered first-round pick Eric Ebron and the team’s other selections from this year’s draft after practice Thursday.

Ebron says Duncan reminded them that they are spending the next week in town before going to the NFL rookie symposium. The tight end recalls Duncan telling him and his teammates “every single day,” to make good choices and do the right thing off the field.
