Stafford's Future Bedroom
A smattering of ingredients are blending together that may indeed make Matthew Stafford the numero uno on NFL Draft Day. But the end product may be as tasty as a three week old egg salad sandwich...
The facts are these:
- the Detroit Lions hold the first pick and they need a QB
- Detroit also needs about 40 more NFL caliber players
- Matthew Stafford is the best available prospect at the QB position

But there's no one willing to trade up. There's not a HOT prospect in this year's crop that begs the temptation. Kansas City traded for a QB last week. St. Louis and San Fran could be in the QB market, but are probably content waiting their turn.
If you're Detroit, do you spend the pick on a QB with Stafford's tremendous ability or on another area of need that may have less of an impact?
So you can see the sea swelling and the clouds forming. Roger Goodell approaches the podium and a young man from outside of Dallas, Texas sees his dream come true - the first pick of the NFL draft.
Here's your light blue jersey son. We'll get someone to block for you next season.
One sidenote: if you haven't travelled over to see the Senator's historical analysis of Stafford versus recent Dawg signal callers, grab hold that mouse and get to clicking. It's one helluva read.
