Detroit drafted the Oregon offensive tackle with the No. 7 pick in the draft. He's 6-foot-5, 33`1 pounds and opted out of the season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Last week, Sewell said he tested positive for COVID-19 and would be missing the team's minicamp.
"Really wish I was heading to my new home today and able to be at mini-camp with my new teammates and coaches," Sewell wrote. "Look forward to getting out to the D as soon as I’m cleared!"
