As for Curry, history is not on his side. The last time a LB was taken #1 overall was in 1988, Aundrey Brice from Auburn and he was a BUST.

New HC. New GM. New Lions = Stafford #1. The Lions are looking for a new direction and until they get their face of the franchise they will be the same old Lions. Also I read an article that made sense to me about how the owner is going to think. A QB is going to put buts in seats generating more money.

As for him getting Carr'ed (Should be added to the dictionary) for every Carr, there is a Rivers and Roethlisberger.

Yes a LB can come in and upgrade your D basically instantly, but a stud QB can will your team to the playoffs for a decade.

I get your point, but Rivers & Roethlisberger didn't get drafted by a team that went 0-16.

I think Jason Smith will be the #1 pick and if Detroit brings in a rookie QB and expects him to start, he is going to get killed.

If you wanna draft Stafford #1, but make him sit the bench then that's fine. But I am generally against taking a player in the 1st that can't contribute immediately.
