8 Players That Matt Stafford Would Most Love for the Detroit Lions to Draft

Strange as it feels to say this, Matthew Stafford has a pretty sweet job as Detroit Lions starting
quarterback.

I mean, think about it. He has Calvin Johnson to throw to for the next eight years, a competent front
office (!!!) committed to his success, and a fanbase ready to crown him Eternal King of Detroit the
moment he leads the Lions to a Super Bowl (or even makes a Pro Bowl).

But what doesn't he have? What pieces could the Lions pick up that would make Stafford's life easier on
a day-to-day basis? Megatron is the gift that keeps on giving, and the Lions have a cohesive offense even beyond his impact for the first time since he joined the team. It isn't as though the team needs to load up on offensive skill position players, though there are no areas absolutely devoid of talent.

Still, I'm guessing Stafford wouldn't say no to some talented new teammates to take into the huddle
with him, especially on those plays where Johnson is triple-covered.
