Stafford a "done deal" (will go #1, contract or not.)

MLive.com and Bleacher Report.com are reporting that the Lions are selecting Matthew Stafford as the #1 pick in Saturdays draft.

NFL.com’s Thomas George was told by a source in the Detroit Lions organization that they select Stafford regardless of whether a deal is in place by the beginning of the draft Saturday at 4 p.m

I can't verify this through any official reports but, for the most part, MLIVE and Bleacher Report are pretty reliable. I expected this and it looks like it's becoming close to official. Simon Wilcott on the NFL network is in Detroit and says that the guaranteed money has been agreed to but how it gets paid out is not. Lions want 3-4 years, Stafford (Condon) want it in two years. Everything should be finalized, or close to it, by draft time tomorrow, if not sooner. Welcome to Detroit, Matthew.
