SI: Stafford workout 'flawless'

According to a report on, Georgia quarterback Matt Stafford was very impressive in his private workout with the Lions today.

Stafford did not return a pair of phone messages, but SI quoted sources as calling the workout “flawless” and saying “it was significantly better than his March 19 pro day.” A team source confirmed “it went well.”

Offensive coordinator Scott Linehan ran the workout, and coach Jim Schwartz and general manager Martin Mayhew were among those expected to attend. Stafford had been training with Terry Shea, who was quarterbacks coach under Linehan in St. Louis last year.

According to SI, Stafford “threw accurately through the entire session,” though Lions coaches did speak with him about past accuracy issues. Stafford is one of three candidates to go No. 1 overall along with Baylor left tackle Jason Smith and Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry.

A group of Lions' decision makers are scheduled to attend USC's pro day on Wednesday, and the front office reconvenes Thursday to begin setting its board.

Hopefully this will get another team to trade up to take Stafford at number 1. Stafford could be great, but with a line that we have, he can't be that good if he gets sacked 7+ a game.

I wonder what are chances really are?? Mayhew swindled the Cowboys pretty good. I wonder if they would take our #20 pick and maybe one of our 3rd rounders, and maybe our 3rd rounder from next year. Then we could draft Curry, have Cutler and still have some draft picks left to get other needs.

If we don't get Cutler, selling Stafford will be tough.
