Curry to dine with Lions Sunday

Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry hit a home run in his meet-and-greet with reporters at the NFL combine Saturday. He said it's a goal of his to be drafted No. 1 overall, spoke of his mom getting evicted after his sophomore year of college and how he wants to buy her a house, and acknowledged the irony of possibly playing for the Lions. His father, Reggie Pinkney, played for the team from 1977-78.

“As far as Detroit at No. 1, it would be a dream come true,” Curry said. “But that decision is a decision that's not going to be made by myself. If I could pick, sure I would go No. 1 overall. It'd just be a great feeling to go out to Detroit and play alongside with Ernie Sims would be amazing being that I watched him play in the ACC as a freshman and always admired how he played.”

Curry, who played strong-side linebacker at Wake Forest, said he believes he can play any linebacker position in the NFL, including middle. The Lions have openings at both the middle and strong-side positions.

He also said he had to reschedule a dinner meeting with the Lions for tomorrow. Originally, the draft's No. 1 linebacker prospect.
