Lions Notes: Draft Party At Hard Rock Cafe Scheduled For Next Friday

  • The full details aren't out yet, but the Lions are going to host a draft party at the Hard Rock Cafe in Detroit next Friday from 4-8 p.m.
  • Based on records from last season, the Detroit Lions' 2011 schedule is tied for the third-most difficult.
  • Gil Brandt said that he has a "little bit of a connection" to Jim Schwartz and that he doesn't think the Lions will draft an offensive lineman. Instead he believes the Lions will go with a defensive player. I personally agree with him. I don't think the Lions will take one of the offensive tackles, especially if Tyron Smith is off the board like many expect.
  • Dr. James Andrews has cleared North Carolina linebacker Bruce Carter for pre-draft workouts. That's both good news and bad news. The good news is that he is recovering, but the bad news is his stock could get a boost and he could be off the board before the Lions have a chance to pick him in the second or third round.
  • Matthew Stafford apparently threw the ball 50 yards with ease at Georgia's spring game last Saturday.
  • According to Rick Reilly, Stafford is "trying to open a wings restaurant in Atlanta" with Philadelphia Eagles receiver Chad Hall, who is the brother of Stafford's girlfriend.
