"After the private workout, we started feeling really good about him and really comfortable with him. It's just the way he carried himself, how smart he was about the game and obviously the way he threw the football, it was very impressive. I was at this pro day and the private workout and this guy can throw the football. We think our fans will be really excited.''

Rachel Nichols, who will be covering the Detroit Lions draft for ESPN, just reported that "As time grows short, Jason Smith's name floats out there.'' If there ever comes a point in the next 24 hours where Smith, the Baylor offensive tackle, enters negotiations with Detroit -- and there's no evidence of that yet -- then the reason is because talks with Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford have collapsed.

If Jason Smith enters talks, it's because Lions aren't signing Matthew Stafford - MLive.com
