Here's the first mock R1 I've seen this year, from SI.

OB what do you want more? Stafford or a big OT like Smith?

If Bradford had come out, I'd be clamoring for them to take him #1 overall. As it stands, I like Eugene Monroe, Malcolm Jenkins, Aaron Curry or Michael Oher.

I don't think that Stafford or Sanchez are worth the #1 overall pick, and I know that new head coach Jim Schwartz' recommendation to GM Martin Mayhew will NOT be a QB.

I've been watching film of Andre Smith and I'm not sure that his footwork is good enough to be a starting LT. I think he's better suited to RT. His weight also concerns me. He's 340. When he gets tens of millions in the bank and he's on his own I'm not so sure that he has the work ethic and dedication to keep his weight under control.

I think that the Lions would be best served taking Monroe or Oher if they want to go OT. I also think that CB Malcolm Jenkins and LB Aaron Curry are both options at #1 overall.

I'm hoping that either Stafford or Sanchez will fall to them at #20, although this is highly unlikely. I'd rather see them pass on a QB this year and hope for the best next year in a much stronger QB class with Bradford and McCoy.

If they take Stafford I am buring all my Lions gear, period! I do not want them to take Andre Smith, he has weight and character issues and reminds me too much of another #1 pick, Aaron Gibson. I'd like to see them trade down and take Jenkins or Maualuga. With The Schwartz as coach now I can only hope he drafts D and lures Albert Haynesworth to Detroit. One can hope, right?

Trading down is certainly the best option for the Lions, but also the least likely. It's very easy for a fan to say that they need to trade down. It's much more difficult for them to actually find a trade partner that's willing to give up everything required to move up to the #1 overall pick. This year it's almost impossible as there isn't a clear #1 overall pick as there has been in previous years.

True brewtus, but we haven't seen the combine yet either. A year ago I would have told you that it was next to impossible for the Lions to trade Roy Williams (who was in the last year of his contract) for a 1st round and 3rd round pick. I guess anything is possible, we just have to hope that #1 guy emerges from the pack or someone falls in love with a player they absolutely have to have.

Are you going to be allocating the other slots to the rest of us? If possible, don't give me the J-E-T-S unless you want to see the first time ever that a punter is taken in the first round.

Yup. I'll give others through the 1st week of March or so to sign up. Teams that don't have anyone assigned to them will be spread out aomngst those who have already signed up.

hokster, you're in for the Giants.
