Chat with Matthew Stafford

Auto Update: Off

Kiper (No. 3) and McShay (No. 7) rank Stafford in the top 10 overall prospects.
Welcome to The Show! On Thursday, NFL prospect and former Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford will stop by to chat about the NFL draft, his time with the Bulldogs and what he's up to with Sprint.

One of the few things that Mel Kiper and Todd McShay agree on concerning the 2009 NFL draft is that the Detroit Lions will draft Matthew Stafford with the No. 1 overall pick. Stafford improved in every passing category in each of his three seasons at Georgia. This past season, he threw for 3,459 yards, with 25 TDs and just 10 INTs, while completing 61.4 percent of his passes.

According to Stafford's Scouts Inc.'s draft profile, he "possesses exceptional arm strength. Can make all the NFL throws and more. Excellent zip on deep outs. Can throw with elite velocity while on the run -- particularly when rolling out to his right. He fits the ball into more tight spots than most starting quarterbacks in the NFL right now."
