It’s going to be a great weekend and I bet there will be a few surprises with Jerry Jones running the show.
NFL Draft Update
1. Lions draft QB Matthew Stafford – Georgia with the first pick in the draft. The Lions get the building block they need for the future. His big arm and ability to get the ball down the field in the passing game makes him an ideal fit for what Detroit wants to do on offense.
2. Rams draft OT Jason Smith – Baylor
3. Chiefs draft DE Tyson Jackson – LSU
4. Seahawks draft LB Aaron Curry – Wake Forest
5. Jets draft QB Mark Sanchez – USC
6. Bengals draft OT Andre Smith – Alabama
7. Radiers draft WR Darrius Heyward-Bey – Maryland
8. Jaguars draft OT Eugene Monroe – Virginia
9. Packers draft DT B.J. Raji – Boston College
10. 49ers draft WR Michael Crabtree – Texas Tech
Note: Many had projected safety Louis Delmas – Western Michigan, to fall to the Cowboys. Unfortunatley he was snatched up by the Detroit Lions with the first pick in the second round, number 33 overall.
Wow, after a 5 hour wait the Cowboys traded their second round pick to Buffalo for a third and fourth round pick tomorrow.
