With the first pick in the NFL draft the Detroit Lions will select quarterback Matthew Stafford. They locked up Stafford Friday night with almost $40 million guaranteed.
An interesting theme that will play throughout the first day will be the role of Mark Sanchez. Starting in March and continuing through April, Sanchez has flown up draft boards on many teams. It will be a possibility that many teams will attempt to trade into the top five, just to have a chance to draft the USC quarterback.

Many experts believe Sanchez will go as early as fourth to the Seattle Seahawks, since the signing of T.J. Houshmandzadeh in the offseason eliminated the need for a wide receiver.

Be sure to check back throughout the day for breaking news, draft coverage, analysis on major trades, surprises, and local Giants and Jets coverage.
