SI: Stafford workout 'flawless'
According to a report on SportsIllustrated.com, 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.
