Detroit has an offer on the table for quarterback Matthew Stafford as the top pick.
I think it's a mistake for the Lions – what's new? – because quarterbacks bomb out so often in the first round and they have much greater needs. Plus, I just don't like any of the quarterbacks in this year's draft.
Detroit would be better off taking offensive tackle Jason Smith first rather than a quarterback, but that's why they're the Lions.
© Once that top pick is established, however, the rest of the draft will start to take shape.
© There seems to be a hold on the Braylon Edwards to Giants trade.
If I'm the Giants, I'd rather have Hakeem Nicks than give up a first-round draft pick and a player – which is reportedly what the Browns are asking for – for Edwards, who dropped everything in sight last season.
© According to ProFootballTalk.com, the Steelers currently have $440,000 in cap space. Again, a trade for Buffalo's Roscoe Parrish seems unlikely because of that - unless Pittsburgh is willing to release inside linebacker Larry Foote.
The Steelers will obviously have to do some work before they sign any of their rookie class.
Those players count as minimum wage guys until they actually sign their contract and therefore don't count against the top 51 salaries.
© Darius Butler is the only cornerback who would interest me in the first round if I'm the Steelers.
© Given my choice of the top three center prospects in this draft, I'd list them in this order, Eric Wood, Max Unger, Alex Mack. That's right, Mack's third on my list because he hasn't shown the ability to play anything other than center, while the other two have.
Wood's nastiness and love of the game gives him the nod over Unger for me.
© Brian Robiskie might be the safest pick of the second tier of wide receivers.
He's smooth with great size and good, not great, speed.
Plus, his dad's an NFL coach, so you know his head's on straight.
Can't say that about Percy Harvin or Kenny Britt. And Nicks raised some concerns by putting on 14 pounds after the combine - though he did have a hamstring problem.
