ALLEN PARK, Mich. (WXYZ) -- The Lions welcomed their first round draft pick, Taylor Decker, to Detroit Friday afternoon.

Head coach Jim Caldwell introduced him to the media at the Lions practice facility in Allen Park. 

Decker said he's excited to be Detroit and that getting the call was 'surreal'. He also said getting a 'welcome' text from Matthew Stafford was surprising and flattering.

Decker -- a former Ohio State Buckeye -- was drafted 16th overall.
