Detroit Lions offensive tackle and first-round draft pick Riley Reiff has agreed to terms on a four-year rookie contract and will be present when the team's rookies report for training camp Monday, a team source confirmed to and NFL Network reporter Albert Breer.

Tim Twentyman of first reported the deal.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but Reiff's contract has an expected value of around $8 million with around $6.5 million in guaranteed money, including full base salary guarantees in the first three seasons.

Reiff was a three-year starter at the University of Iowa, with most of his starts coming at left tackle. The 6-foot-6, 313-pound Reiff has prototypical left-tackle size and is expected to be the eventual long-term replacement for 34-year-old Jeff Backus, who has made 177 consecutive starts (regular season and playoffs) and was re-signed to a two-year, $5.85 million contract this offseason.

With Reiff under contract, the Lions have become the 18th team to sign all of their picks from the 2012 NFL Draft. Full-squad Lions training camp practices begin Friday. ... e-contract
