Matthew Stafford?! Really?!

It's never too early to start talking NFL Draft -- four months baby! Get the drinking games ready! -- and, clearly, many other websites agree with us. DC Pro Sports Report compiled a list of whom each Draft site has going No. 1, No. 2 and then to the NFC East teams.

The thing to take from the list: it looks like Michael Johnson's the guy in Washington! Kidding...

Matthew Stafford seems like the favorite to be the top player selected -- all-but-surely by the winless Lions.

The 20-year-old junior has improved statistically every year, but couldn't help Georgia live up to the hype as the preseason No. 1; Georgia finished the regular season at 9-3 and will play in the Capital One Bowl.

Stafford's numbers were fine -- 61.1 completion percentage, 3,209 yards, 22 TDs, 9 INTs. At 6-foot-3, 237, he's got a linebacker's body and moves like a lineman. Not exactly the dual-threat QB.

He's popular with the NFL scouts namely for his cannon arm, to which we say: Kyle Boller and JaMarcus Russell also had rocket arms coming out of college and that's gone real well.

Some NFL Mock Drafts that have Sam Bradford coming out have him going No. 1. We think that makes a bit more sense. But knowing the Lions' track record with drafting, they'll turn Stafford into a $35 million disaster.

Or they'll draft Michael Crabtree.

Why would the Lions draft a QB when they already have Daunte Culpepper!!! You don't know shit, TBP.

I was gonna say the exact same thing about Crabtree in the comments, and then I saw you already wrote it. Sometimes we think way too much alike.

DET needs so much they need to trade down but that probally makes too much sense. If I had to take someone at #1 would prob take an offensive linemen and hope to protect our QB's a little better
