    Lions Confident they will sign No. 1 Overall Before Draft

    This means they could sign a draft pick any day now. I'm pretty excited to know, because this will most likely determine which position we will draft.



    Associated Press


    ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Detroit Lions general manager Martin Mayhew says the chances are very good that the team will have a deal done with the No. 1 overall pick before the NFL draft begins Saturday.


    Mayhew declined to say much else during a news conference Tuesday. The draft is Saturday, and the Lions have taken great pride in staying quiet about their plans.


    "I hope nobody expects me to say anything earth-shattering," Mayhew said in his opening comments.


    Mayhew says the list of candidates to take first overall has narrowed, but he wouldn't talk about specific players when he was asked about Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford.


    Detroit is expected to draft Stafford, Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry or Baylor offensive tackle Jason Smith with the No. 1 pick, hoping one of the college stars will help turn around the NFL's first 0-16 team.


    Mayhew said there has been some "moderate interest" from other teams seeking a trade for the No. 1 pick.

    I hope it's Stafford. I'd really love to see Curry in a Rams uniform.

    To tell you the truth, I'm fine with whoever they select. Because we won't be able to fix this whole team in one year's draft. So I would be happy with Curry or Smith and even Monroe.
