Who will go first?

I think the Lions will pick Matt Stafford. I wonder if they will regret that pick two years from now, however. The Lions' defense is atrocious, and they have Aaron Curry right there for the taking. I know selecting a linebacker at #1 would be unconventional and subject to intense criticism if it doesn't pan out, but is Stafford really a franchise QB? I wonder about his decision-making, and with the Lions' offensive line, I see a tough adjustment to the NFL. We'll see.

If it were me, I'd select Jason Smith.

Stafford is vastly overrated and is a decent QB in a very shallow QB pool. The Lions should shore up some other areas before worrying about a QB, who won't make an impact while lying on his back all game long.
