Was this, so to speak, the last duck in the row?  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Stafford wows Lions at UGA workout
SI.com: NFL (31.03.2009 15:10)
The Detroit Lions brain trust headed south today to hold a private on-campus workout with Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Matt Stafford. The results were encouraging for Stafford and the Lions, who own the first pick in April's draft.

This seems awfully "creative" and ultimately knee-jerk to me... with respect to the Cutler trade and all the hype surrounding Sanchez at the moment...  Correct me if I am wrong.  From "The REAL Feed":
 
2009 Mock Draft: Cutler Trade Creates A Stir
Scout.com > NFL > National Football League Team (03.04.2009 15:10)
Now that the Denver Broncos traded Jay Cutler to the Chicago Bears, how will that affect the first round of the 2009 draft? Scout.com's NFL Draft Analyst Chris Steuber tells you what he thinks could happen in the opening frame, and it could have major ramifications on what other teams pursue.

A bunch of "hijacked" stuff available on "The REAL Feed" by way of MyWire.com...
 
49ers Exploring the options with the No. 10 pick
KeepMedia: Football (10.04.2009 16:10)

This LOCAL daily says the Lions have no choice...  They gotta take Stafford.  From "The REAL Feed":
 
Myers: Lions have to take Stafford
New York Daily News: Sports - Football (11.04.2009 16:55)
If Matt Millen was still in charge in Detroit, is there any doubt he would draft Texas Tech pass-catching machine Michael Crabtree with the first pick in the NFL Draft on April 25? But thankfully for Lions fans, Millen was fired last season.

Lions not really "roaring in" to Draft day.  From "The REAL Feed"...
 
LOCAL report:
 
Lions stay mum on No. 1 pick
Detroit Lions (13.04.2009 16:16)
Detroit -- If the Lions are making any progress toward deciding on, let alone signing, the No. 1 overall pick in this month's NFL draft, they're keeping it to themselves.

 
Peter King's nationally syndicated take:
