Paper: Curry believes Stafford is No. 1 pick
According to a short story posted on the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's website earlier tonight, Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry "sounded resigned to the fact that" Georgia quarterback Matt Stafford will be the Lions' No. 1 pick.
Its just the prestige of being the No. 1 overall pick, Curry, in New York for the draft, told the paper. You can go to any athlete of any draft and ask them if they want to be the No. 1 pick, and theyre going to say, Yeah, and what would they do to get it? Theyd do anything to be in Matthews shoes right now.
The Lions remain in negotiations with Stafford at this point, but a team source said the sides are "really close" and I continue to believe it's just a matter of time before a deal is done.
