#1 Detroit Lions - Matthew Stafford
Nobody wants to pick first overall, not only do you have to have the league's worst record to secure the selection, but you're going to have to shell out somewhere on the order of $40 to $50 million dollars in guaranteed money to a player who has a 50-50 chance of being a colossal bust. Stafford is generally considered to be the best quarterback available, and adding a top flight passer will go further than anything else towards making the Lions respectable again.
Other options: Jason Smith, Aaron Curry, Eugene Monroe
