View Full Version : Profootball Reporting Curry to be #1

Profootballtalk is reporting that a deal is basically finished for Curry to be the #1 pick. If that's the case, that increases the chances that Sanchez will be available at 12 considerably.

My take. I want Tyson Jackson or BJ Raji. If they are off the board, I am fine with Sanchez.

the deal is done. doesnt mean they are going to pick him though, they are waiting to see waht the stafford deal does and how much it will cost. but in case it takes too long or he wants too much, they have curry.

While a deal is probly reached..... it doesnt mean he will be the #1 pick. I did read somewhere that Curry said he would take last years #1 picks money. Saves the team a couple million. Could happen.. Its just not official untils announced at the podium.

Why are you certain? I could see them drafting Curry #1 if Stafford wants too much guaranteed $$$ and DET pulling off a trade with CLE for Brady Quinn for their #2 this year or next. And if I was DET's GM, that's the direction I would go anyhow--with Curry or the LT from Baylor (Smith) as my #1. Quinn has 3 yrs experience and won't be wet behind the ears.......so how you are certain is beyond me.

simply a leverage move to further motivate Stafford to sign quicker rather than later...

stafford will prolly be signed and announced before the end of tomorrow night...maybe even tonight...

just wait and see if you don't believe me...

IMO the lions should infact take Curry. That franchise has no business hitching itself to a 38million dollar unproven QB. Then having to pay a #20 and #33 when they field an 0-16 team with more holes then well something with alot of holes.

If Curry goes #1 the top 10 could get real interesting.

I wouldn't be suprised in the slightest by this. In fact, its not a bad move on their part, particularly if they feel that Freedman will be available when they pick next. And if Stafford and Sanchez are sliding a little, the chances of them being able to grab Freedman greatly increase.

NFL shows Raji, Jackson and Sanchez all gone in the first ten. Interesting mock they had tonight. I think it repeats later, catch it if you can. Orakpo should be there at 12.....

They had Faiders taking Crabtree, mullets taking an OT, and Seattle taking Sanchez, Packers taling Raji. Frankkly, it was a more realistic mock than any I have seen thus far......

In that scenario, I would see DEnver taking Orakpo at 12, and going for a DE at 18. Maybe Ayers or Maybin.....

Lienart IMO is failing because he took the money and started partying, instead of working hard and trying to play QB. He was talented and could still get it together later in career, but his failure was not because he lacked the ability to play QB in the NFL.

I'm not a fan of any of the 3. All are tops in historically poor drafts for their positions. Raji has issues, Jackson is ho hum and only the #1 guy if you narrow the margins way down. I like Sanchez the best of the 3.

That said, I hope we don't take any of them.

theAPAOps5
04-22-2009, 07:56 PM
Good point but that means they might reach for Tyson Jackson.

Yes but other talent will trickle down because of this. That and it puts Denver in an opportunity to deal to get better.

St. Louis won't draft a QB. If Curry goes number 1 then they will be all over the LT from Baylor. So now we get to 3. Even if KC takes Tyson Jackson its not a bad thing and I really think they covet a LB so they might either trade down where there is more value at LB or reach.

So now both QB's are still there at 4. Seattle will take one of them. If they are smart they take Sanchez but they probably go with the sexy pick in Stafford. Maybe Cleveland takes Sanchez but now they have 3 high paid QB's on the roster. Starts to look like Detroit and their WR addiction. Cincy doesn't need a QB and Oakland doesn't think they do and their owner poops himself.

So that puts us at 8 where Jacksonville sits. Are they ready to continue on with Gerrard or do they take Sanchez/Stafford. Or do they now sit in a position to trade back. There are teams who will jump to move up to 8.

Bottom line is if this really happens it will push decent talent down towards our pick even if Tyson Jackson is gone. This is a pretty decent series of events if they are true.

Bad example, IMO, Caseell, this year, will quickly show everyone why he is a "life-time-backup".
Playing for a 16-0 team last year with excellent protection good WRs and great coaching, made him look real good.
I fully expect him to fall flat on his ass this year. As for Sanchez: I'll go back to my previous point, if you can even beat JDB on the USC Depth-Chart I'm not expecting you to be anything more than serviceable, maybe?

. I guess your really a glass half-full type of guy because Curry in nasty.
I have nightmares every night about playing him twice a year. He is both the strongest and fastest linebacker in the draft.(A strong linebacker class i may add). He could play free safety if that's what a team wanted to do with him. He is the scariest player in the draft by far and will have no problem with the blitz. I'd be willing to bet if he goes to the chiefs he gets defensive rookie of the year. Please believe me you do not want the chiefs to get him.

Detroit should sign him just for the fact he would be the only person on that defense that could tackle AD. That and he is a player you can build a defense around. Imagine Al Wilson on steroids and crack simultaneously.

Just join in the chant with me " Stafford needs to much money, please take Aaron Curry" ...

By the way guys...We are not drafting Sanchez it just doesn't make sense. I hope we don't draft him at least that would be a waste of a 2nd round pick and the 13th pick we could have gotten from washington.

That would make the draft a little more intresting if it turned out this way. The phonelines would go crazy with people wanting to make trades for the QBs.

It's a shame if Sanchez goes to the Skins. If he gets a couple of years to carry a clipboard and learn the pro game, I think he'll end up a franchise QB. If he gets tossed into the starting role his first year (like he will in Washington) I think it will ruin him. What does Snyder care? It's all just fantasy football to him.

unless Denver get's creative, it won't be us...

Seattle is in the best spot if they're not really interested in Sanchez...because the Jets and Redskins (and hopefully not us) will get into a bidding war for the #4 pick...Seattle could clean up, and conceivably still pick just one pick behind our 1st pick...

unless KC is coheresed into trading their #3 pick, which could happen...Skins/Jets may be afraid that Seattle's interest in Sanchez isn't a smokescreen and may try and trade with the Chiefs...if that's the case, the chiefs will make out like a fat rat...

then there's Jacksonville...they have a pick outside the top 5 making it cheaper to acquire...if Sanchez is available at 8, then they will almost certainly have suiters as trade partners...Redskins have the edge being their pick is better than NY's...

basically my point is Denver is out of the mix because Sanchez isn't falling to #12...he gets no further than #8...

the only way we're even remotely in the mix is if we trade up with Jax for their #8 (in an effort to get a D-lineman) and Sanchez is still on the board ...frankly, it's in our best interest this doesn't happen because we'll be in a bidding war with the Jets & Skins...

hopefully Sanchez is long gone before the #8 pick, so if we wanna trade a 3rd round pick to swap with Jax to get Raji/Jackson, we won't have to outbid anyone...Jax picking up a 3rd rounder just to move back 4 spots is a no-brainer for them unless they want someone badly enough at #8...

I don't see Sanchez getting past Seattle at #4. From all the reports, Seattle was a big player at Sanchez' pro-day workouts. They were pretty locked in on him. It would be the perfect setup for Sanchez. He goes and learns under Hasselbeck for a couple of seasons and he's ready to take over after that. It would be a very smart move for the Hawks.

The League wants some suspense in the draft, they don't want to go into a situation where (hypothetically) the teams in the Top 5 have all signed their player. They'll let the team with the 1st overall do it, but not the rest.

No. When Alex Smith signed with the 49ers the #2 team that year, Miami, asked if they could begin negotiations and where denied. The pick needs to be officially announced at the podium for the second team to get on the clock.

I dunno if this matters, but the local media here was all over Michael Crabtree at first, until the injury news ... since then they've been concentrating the OTs, with some talk of Aaron Curry to maybe replace the traded Julian Peterson.

Not much reported about Sanchez really ... these fans love Matt Hasselbeck.

The might. Linebacker is the talent in this yrs first round. They could still come back and take Dline in the 2nd and 3rd, and grab 3 players there. Who knows Broncos may even make a trade for dline. Honestly Cushing is a good player if he was there at 18 Broncos would be smart to think about taking him. Same with Curry or Orakpo at 12 if they slid.

Tyson Jackson really the only dend that seems worth a top 15 pick and he may go much earlier then that.

Raji more a 4-3 DT, he had a big guy playing DT next to him in college.

Who knows seems like linebacker is the value, would not be surprised to see Broncos take some of them.

That would be worthy of an extra round @ Hooters for sure........

We're not going to fix it in one draft or one offseason. We've got to take the best of what's available now.

You're so dismissive lately ??? This time you missed my point.

Yes you're right, we won't fix this putrid defense in one draft ... but our weaknesses are different by magnitudes from one unit to the next.

We do have several good, experienced linebackers ... but we have NOTHING on the D-Line. Marcus Thomas has more NFL starts than all the other D-linemen combined.

As it stands now, MT and Kenny Peterson are our 3-4 DE starters. So we need high quality guys right away. An effective starter at DE right away, and an effective rotation NT right away. If the value isn't there, then trade back. But we need to address this situation as high as possible in this draft because we need a starter and a rotation guy now. You prolly don't get those guys on Day 2.

2007's Amon Gordon and 2008's Calvin Lowry will become 2009's Nic Clemons or Ryan McBean if we don't act and act boldly.

Hahahaha ... Hotrod, MM would not be a bad choice for your new adopt-a-player ???

You can be sure you'll never see me arguing against McChesney ... he's a warrior.

Beat writer Tom Kowalski reports that the Lions have a contract in place that would make Aaron Curry the No. 1 overall pick, and are in wait-and-see mode in negotiations with Matthew Stafford.
The Lions prefer Stafford, but are using Curry's deal (which is certainly smaller) as leverage in contract talks. GM Martin Mayhew reportedly won't let negotiations last past Friday. If no deal is reached by then, Curry will be the No. 1 pick. A source tells Kowalski that Stafford's agent will likely agree to a deal, but expects the process to last right up until the deadline.
