He's automatically the best QB in their division. Except maybe Chicago Barbie.

Lions reportedly will draft QB Stafford No. 1
Ex-Georgia star would take over reins of team that was winless this year
Ex-Georgia star Matt Stafford is considered the best quarterback available in this year's NFL draft.

John Bazemore / AP


Report: Lions planning to draft Matt Stafford
Bills extend DT Stroud's deal through 2012

NBCSports.com news services
updated 11:17 a.m. MT, Wed., April 8, 2009
The Detroit Lions will draft former Georgia star quarterback Matthew Stafford with the No. 1 pick at the NFL draft on April 25, Pro Football Talk reported Wednesday.

With representatives for each of the 32 professional teams watching, Stafford completed 45 of his 50 passes to four receivers on Georgia’s pro day last month.

In a script of plays he said he wrote, Stafford zipped passes to each sideline, he threw deep routes — including one completion of at least 50 yards — and he threw while rolling to his right and left.

The workout was important because Stafford did not throw at the NFL combine in Indianapolis.

“I wanted to be able to throw a bunch of balls,” Stafford said. “At Indy you get to throw about 10 to 15 and it was a good chance for me to get out here and throw 50 and let people see.”

Stafford didn’t give himself a grade but said “I think I did pretty good.”

“I missed one or two that I just threw high but other than that I think I did well,” he said. “This is how well you can throw in your shorts to a guy in a T-shirt with nobody guarding him, so it’s important I guess for people to see the physical attributes, but it’s not real football.”

Jacksonville Jaguars quarterbacks coach Mike Shula said he was impressed by Stafford’s throws.

“I think he’s got a bright mind,” Shula said. “I think he’s a fast thinker and I think he has all the tools that an NFL quarterback is going to need to be successful.”

Shula said Stafford’s draft status should not be hurt by not throwing at the NFL combine.

“I think, especially with a guy who supposedly has a chance to be a very, very high pick, it’s understandable,” Shula said. “I think maybe guys down the line need that. We respect all that. Do we want everyone to work out at the combine? Yeah. We respect that, especially with someone who is in the position he’s in.”

Southern California’s Mark Sanchez joins Stafford as the highest rated quarterbacks in the draft.

Stafford was a three-year starter at Georgia before bypassing his senior year to enter the draft.

He completed 235 of 383 passes (61.4 percent) for 3,459 yards with a school-record 25 touchdowns and 10 interceptions and was 27-7 as a starter in his career.

Really? Stafford and Sanchez are both predicted to be better than Graham Harrell and Chase Daniels?

I dotn get it. Harrell set freakin records. And Daniels is a huge prototypical NFL QB with a great arm.

WTF did Stafford do in college? Or Dirty Sanchez?

Harrell played in a gimmicky offense where most QBs are successful and I think Daniels is only 6'0". I'm not high on Stafford or Sanchez either, but there are your reasons.

Good, now maybe they'll want to move ahead of the Skins to draft their tackle.

hopefully a LT is still available at 12 and we can trade back with them, so they can get a guy to protect the new face of their franchise and get 20 and maybe 33 or something like that.

uh...there would be little incentive to do that knowing that we aren't going to pick the LT.

My bad, thought you were talking about the skins not detroit

Andre Smith might still be there. He was made to be a Lion.

Stafford reminds me a lot of Cutler in terms of arm strength, decision making, etc.

Smart choice by the Lions if they take Matthew Stafford.

I could have gone my entire life without seeing that. At least I didn't see it moving.

Chase Daniel is not huge....only 6'0.

His arm strength and accuracy are average....not great.

Before the Lions take Stafford with that #1 pick, they should sit back, close their eyes, and envision where Stafford would be picked if he was coming out next year.

I'm not sure about that. Mayock pointed out that in the last 15 drafts, 11 underclassmen QBs have gone in the 1st round. Of the group, only Roethlisberger and maybe Aaron Rodgers can be regarded as successes. I would not touch an underclassmen QB in the 1st round with a ten foot pole.

Yeah, I think Stafford would have benefited greatly from staying another year.

They need a QB I cant fault them. I wouldn't take one this year. Why dont we offer them Orton for like 2 first rounders? Orton is a superstar now that he's in Denver right
