David Birkett of the Oakland Press is reporting the Detroit Lions are close to a deal with Georgia quarterback Matthew Stafford to be selected for the No. 1 overall pick.
Per the report, the deal just needs to be finalized by owner William Clay Ford.
However, Tom Kowalski of Mlive.com is reporting Detroit team officials have denied the Oakland Press report.
Either way, it appears Stafford is probably headed to Detroit on Saturday, and linebacker Aaron Curry could still be in play when Seattle picks at No. 4.
