(WXYZ) -- The Detroit Lions released video Friday of general manager Brad Holmes' phone call to Penei Sewell, informing the offensive tackle he was about to be selected with the seventh overall pick in the NFL Draft.

"One Pride over here, man," Holmes told Sewell during the call. "We want you in this pride, all right?"

Head coach Dan Campbell joined the call later.

"You're gonna change the culture for us, man," Campbell told Sewell. "We're gonna build this thing around guys like you, you hear me?"
