Report: Lions Planning To Draft Matt Stafford

The Detroit Lions are currently planning to draft Georgia QB Matthew Stafford with the No. 1 overall pick, according to Profootballtalk.com. It was reported on KFFL within the last month that Detroit planned to take Jason Smith, so realize that this isn’t absolute. GM Martin Mayhew wants to make sure his No. 1 pick has signed a contract before the draft and Stafford’s agent, Tom Condon, typically drives a hard bargain.
