Stafford has started 32 games, gone 14-6 in the SEC as a starter, and was undefeated in bowl games. The only way Stafford drops to #15 in the actual draft is if he is filmed clubbing baby seals. Wait...the Raiders would still take Matt at #7 and deal Jamarcus Russell. Matt Stafford is the number 1 pick in this draft. Granted, it's a weak draft. But he is the #1 pick.
I think he has HUGE bust potential, but I agree with you. The lions are not known for making smart football moves. If they were smart they would have signed Jeff Garcia, draft Aaron Curry or one of the two top OTs with the first pick, then do the opposite with the second 1st rounder. From then on they could go BPA and really rebuild their team. Then next year when there are good QBs available (such as Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford, Zac Robinson, Jevan Snead, etc). This is not a good year for getting a QB. Both Stafford and Sanchez look like they have BUST written all over them.
