ORANGEBURG, SC - SC State offensive tackle Johnny Culbreath was selected Saturday by the Detroit Lions in the seventh round of the National Football League draft. The 6-5, 310 Culbreath was the sixth player chosen in the seventh and the 209th selection overall.

 The Monroe, Ga. native is the second Bulldog in as many years to be drafted. Last season, defensive back Phillip Adams was taken in the seventh round by San Francisco and was one of the team's top backups at corner before suffering a late season ankle injury.

Culbreath was one of the most dominant linemen at SC State and in the MEAC during his Bulldog career. Twice he earned All-America honors, was a three-time All-MEAC selection and the league's Offensive Player of the Year in 2009.

He is the latest Bulldog to head to the Motor City and the Detroit Lions. In 1992, SC State's Robert Porcher was the Lion's first-round pick, becoming the school's only first rounder in the NFL Draft. Ten years earlier, Edward Lee, a Bulldog wide receiver was taken in the 11th round by the Lions. And three years ago in 2008, former All-MEAC quarterback Cleveland McCoy signed as a free agent with the club but did not make the final squad.

Culbreath was one of three MEAC players taken in the draft. Hampton DL Kenrick Ellis was selected in the third round (#66 overall) by the New York Jets and Florida A&M DB Curtis Holcomb was the seventh-round pick (#250 overall) of the San Francisco 49ers.
