Post-Draft Outlook: A closer look at the Lions' picks: Round 1/1 -- Matthew Stafford, QB, 6-2, 225, Georgia...The Lions have been looking for their next great quarterback since trading Bobby Layne to Pittsburgh in 1958, and now here comes Stafford, who went to the same high school Layne did. Stafford has a big arm that can get the ball downfield to wide receiver Calvin Johnson, and coach Jim Schwartz said he was the consensus No. 1 player at Lions headquarters. The Lions don't have to rush him because they have a rejuvenated Daunte Culpepper on a one-year deal. - by The Sports Xchange
