I am on the Stafford wagon and have been for some time. He has the arm you absolutely look for and demand for a NFL franchise. With Scott alone saying he is a Jay Cutler clone that is good enough for me. He also played the SF in High School for the basketball team and it is always nice to have a multi-sport pure "athlete", which I believe is what Stafford is. Lions have NO future at the QB spot and if they pass on Stafford, they are fools.

Yeah I am also all for Laurinaitis at 19 or 20.

I'm starting to dislike the Laurinaitis pick now. I just think he's overrated. I foresee a possible Paul Posluszny-type drop this year.

But at 33 I might still be OK with him.

I want Spikes much more than JL tho. If a scenario was that we took Stafford then Raji and JL was there at 33 but Spikes wasn't i think i would be tempted to look at either OG or DE rather than take JL just because i dont believe that he is going to be a great MLB in the future

i dont think he's great at shedding blocks and feel as if he is significantly behind the other 3 (curry Rey and Spikes). Im not saying he will not be a good player i just think that if we miss out on Spikes and a guy like DUke robinson or Hardy is there at 33 i would prefer to adress those positions seeing as they're all needs

Yeah I will admit that if Spikes declares, I would defientley prefer him, as I consider him a superior athlete with a mean streak for the middle

1. Maualuga
2. Spikes
3. Laurinaitis

Those are my rankings!

Well I don't see Duke Robinson AND JL making it to 33 there would have to be some surprising picks and/or a big fall from grace in the off season to make them both there. I would take Robinson and try to move back up into the 2nd 2 3rd round picks and our 6th would bring us to 45th overall (13th in the 2nd)

Would you be OK with a 4 player draft? If those 4 players were Stafford, Raji, JL, and Robinson?


Random Thought:
When was the last time 3 MLBs went in the first round?

I don't think it has ever happened.

As far as trading goes.. the most I'd do is using one of our 3rds with either #20, or #33, to move up. According to the value chart.. #33 with Dallas' 3rd could get us Pick #23/24.. #33 with our 3rd could maybe net us Pick #21.

Would we be okay with three 1sts, one 3rd, one 5th, and two 6ths?

Ehhhhhh we got a ton of holes to plug. Maybe I'd entertain it. We'd get 7 players but I think we might need to have as many good picks to take a shot at getting players that can make an impact.

A few points.

1. Good. I don't want to pay Cassel the money he is going to want, especially since it's a huge unknown whether he can play outside of New England's system.

2. A rookie LT might not be better than Jeff Backus in 2009 but that same LT will be better than Jeff Backus in 2010, and 2011, and 2012, etc.

Andre Smith is no Jake Long and Matthew Stafford is the "elite" QB prospect of this draft. Although it will be interesting to see how Bradford does Thursday night against a very good and athletic defense. I actually like Bradfords attitude better but think Stafford has the measurables that you can not pass up.

Thank god this happened. He's not going to be the same QB when he's not on the Pats unless he follows mcdaniels.
