Lions 'Still Exploring All Options'
Coach Jim Schwartz said the Detroit Lions haven't decided what they'll do with Saturday's top overall choice in the NFL draft.
"We're still exploring all options," Schwartz said, according to the Detroit Free Press, after the team completed a three-day minicamp Sunday. "You guys have seen the people that have been in here. We're still exploring all options right now."
The Lions, coming off the first 0-16 season in NFL history, are thought by many people within the league to be likely to select Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford. But they haven't officially ruled out Baylor left tackle Jason Smith or Wake Forest linebacker Aaron Curry.
Lions officials reportedly will negotiate with the representatives for all three players in hopes of having a contract completed before the draft with the player who will be selected, as NFL rules permit.
The Lions might like to trade to pick but there appears to be little interest among other clubs in obtaining the top choice.
