Great article about draft evaluation that shows how truly ridiculous the process can be.

I really like this story. Though I'd rather see the Lions take Stafford #1 overall, this shows the kind of character guy the Lions would get if they took Curry.

An interesting move that could change some things in the draft order perhaps. It won't affect the Lions at all really, the Giants won't draft WR and the Browns might go Crabtree.

As the session with Lewand was breaking up, a few reporters continued to poke and prod about the No. 1 overall pick. After revealing the Lions would unveil their new logo next Monday, I thanked Lewand for helping me set my schedule for next week then asked in jest when they planned on signing Matt Stafford so I could pencil that into my planner, too. "I didn't know Aaron Curry changed his name," Lewand joked back.

Lewand was just joking and obviously you probably shouldn't read anything into it, but the comment was interesting. Aaron Curry has sort of seemed like the odd man out with regards to the top pick, as Matthew Stafford and Jason Smith are generally the two mentioned most by the media. It was good to simply hear Lewand mention Curry. Birk's Eye View: Stafford or Curry? You decide

As we hear it, Stafford is telling his former Bulldog teammates that he’ll be the pick, and that he’ll receive more than $40 million, guaranteed, under the contract that the team will pay him. Stafford is characterizing the move as a "done deal."

Regardless of the fact that I don't want the Lions to draft Stafford, the fact that he is going to get that much guaranteed money is proof of why the NFL needs a rookie wage scale. It is absolutely ridiculous for a team to pay that much to an unproven player. ProFootballTalk.com - Stafford Telling Teammates He’ll Be A Lion
