A Matt Stafford Photo Gallery: Is He Worth $70 Million and Ready for the NFL?

Eye on Sports MediaCorrespondent IApril 25, 2009

I said this when I first saw the news that UGA quarterback Matt Stafford declared for the NFL draft, and I will say it again now: I do not think he is ready for the NFL, and I do not think he will be the savior of the Detroit Lions.

I hope I am wrong, but only time will tell. After all, who do I think I am? Mel Kiper Jr.?

Of course, with a contract worth up to $70 million in his pocket, I do not think it really matters, does it?

Here are some pictures I took of Stafford over the past couple of years.
