Will the Lions dare pass up a potential franchise quarterback? Who'll make the move for Mark Sanchez? Here's how SI projects the 32 picks in the first round on April 25
Quarterback | Georgia
Wake Forest LB Aaron Curry is overpriced for this slot, and tackle isn't a huge need position for Detroit. The pick falls to a smart, precocious 21-year-old with an arm to die for.
Tackle | Baylor
The choice between Smith and fellow tackle Eugene Monroe goes down to the wire, and Smith wins the chance to succeed Orlando Pace because of his competitive zeal.
Defensive end | LSU
K.C. hopes it gets an offer to trade down with a team that wants QB Mark Sanchez. Failing that, the Chiefs will take Jackson, the best 3--4 DE in the draft but a reach this high.
Quarterback | USC
Incumbent Matt Hasselbeck turns 34 this year and missed much of last season with a bad back. Sanchez can be groomed for a year or two, then be ready to play.
Linebacker | Wake Forest
