Schefter reporting that the Detroit Lions higher ups are all having dinner with Curry tonight. They also had dinner 2 nights ago with Stafford.

Pretty much a non-story since obviously nobody would consider a LB this high as it is a position of little value.

The Lions hired Gunther away from Kansas City.

Think about that.
Think about how stupid they are.

ROFL They're so stupid they will probably be the first team ever to go 0-17

They'll take all the top 10 prospects to dinner
and tell them the Escalade is overrated and
it would be unamerican to buy out of the big 3

That's ironic. I also had Curry for dinner last night. It's great on chicken.

There could be something brewing with them and Cassell. Maybe they trade their other first rounder for him and then trade back a few spots and pick Curry.

I would think they would want to do the QB/LT thing in the 1st if they can. Maybe their packaging the later 1st round pick instead...Who knows? I know this, their probably scared as hell to screw this up!

I know this, their probably scared as hell to screw this up!I could envision a scenario in which the Lions trade the lower of their first round picks for Cassell and then trade their first overall pick to the Chiefs for the our first 3 picks or our first 2 picks this year and our second rounder next year.

From there, the Lions could draft Curry number 3. If they really want a LT, they would have plenty of ammunition to move up into the late first round and grab Oher. There has been a glut of talent at LT the last 2 drafts (this year and last year), so at least one of the premier LTs will likely slide.

If the Lions do something like this, they could wind up with their franchise QB, the best defensive player in the draft, and a cornerstone LT. It won't happen, but it would be interesting to watch.

I don't see the Chiefs trading up...

I would probably start a petition to re-hire Carl Peterson if we traded our 1st,2nd, and 3rd round picks to move up 2 places in the 1st round.

That's fair value based on the draft board. If we are convinced that Stafford is the next great NFL QB, we would have to make that move and never look back.

I stand by my origional statement. There comes a time when "fair value" really isn't. This is one of those times IMO. One of the equations in my opinion is that absolutely nobody believes that Stafford is "the next great NFL QB." He's merely the best of an average lot - not worth 3 draft choices.

If Stafford isn't that guy, then that's a different story, and he isn't worth it. If Pioli believes that he is that guy, you do whatever it takes.

If you truly believe that a QB is the next Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, you trade your entire draft and naming rights to the stadium if that's what it takes.

Hopefully Gunther is pimping the Hell out of Curry.

He is at the top of Gunther's wish list. :)

Scott Wright believes he has the best odds of anyone in the class becoming a Hall of Famer.

Said it on a chat at NFLDC the other day.

That's a pretty silly conclusion to reach. If Sanchez had one more year under his belt with similar production to this past year, he would be the #1 QB because Stafford has accuracy and decision making questions. If Bradford came out some teams would probably consider him the #1 QB. I wonder if Wright thinks all three guys have a good chance of becoming a Hall of Famer?

sanchez: intangibles guy. he has good accuracy, a good (not quite 'plus') arm, and he puts in the work that separates peyton manning from the rest of the nfl (remember, peyton doesn't exactly have the best physical talent like a ryan leaf had). his ceiling is a top 3 nfl qb.

stafford: he's the 'it' talent guy. his arm is plus-plus, and he has possibly the best physical talent of any qb in the last 5-10 years from what I've read. the problem with guys like him is that they often depend too heavily on their talent, and don't work as hard as guys like sanchez who have talent (not as much), but have to work their asses off and are film rats. stafford, if put in the right situation and mentored properly (by a qb guru who teaches him that he needs to put time in the film room, work on mechanics, etc), stafford could be absolutely great. his ceiling is almost limitless if he puts in the work of a sanchez.

bradford. feh. I just don't think bradford will be a GREAT nfl qb like the above have the possibilities of being. I think that bradford is 'only' a west coast qb--he has accuracy, but not that great of an arm. he is in an offense that hides his flaws. he plays from the spread a good percent of the time, and he's surrounded by more nfl talent than either of the above. I don't dislike bradford--he can be good. but I think his ceiling is that of a chad pennington--he's like hitting a ground rule double--you'll live with it, but you won't be happy when the potential home-runs like sanchez and stafford are kicking your ass in the playoffs.

The ones that come to mind for me are:
Carson Palmer
Peyton Manning
Drew Bledsoe

I'm probably missing someone, but those are the last 3 that I remember coming out and being considered to be as ready as Stafford.
