Stafford private workout with Lions goes good.
Report: Stafford Impresses Lions
Posted by Aaron Wilson on March 31, 2009, 3:21 p.m.
University of Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford reportedly impressed the Detroit Lions’ brass during a private workout today as he attempted to convince them that he should be the top overall pick of the draft, according to Tony Pauline of SI.com.
Per Pauline, Stafford had a “flawless” workout that was a major upgrade over his performance at his Pro Day workout and raised his stock with the Lions considerably.
Citing sources in Athens, Pauline wrote that they gained the impression that Stafford’s showing makes it a “done deal” that the Lions will draft the Texas native first overall when they’re on the clock in April.
Pauline wrote that Stafford was able to handle the Lions’ intricate workout and was accurate on roughly 37 of 40 passes, “hitting receivers in stride and threw accurately through the entire session.”
Now who to pick? One of the OT or the LB..
Re: Stafford private workout with Lions goes good.
what great news can't say it was a suprise though.
we should now get jason smith. Lets get extremely great at what were already good at running the football. with a new center,a new Tackle, a new blocking tight end, and a fullback, and a healthy sjax we can carry our running game into a contender for the NFC west divison.
Or we could even go the curry route. we were not going to pick stafford anyway so we have top pick at OT or MLB ( our two biggest needs)
