Kiper: "Cassel over Stafford and Sanchez"

Mel Kiper was quoted in his conference call today saying that if he was the Detriot Kittens or Chefs would take Matty Franchise over the two top draft QBs- Matthew Stafford and Mark Sanchez.

"If I were Detroit or Kansas City, I would make that move in a heartbeat. If
you’re asking me if I would rather have Matt Cassel or Matthew Stafford or Mark
Sanchez, I’d rather have Matt Cassel, he looked like he should have been
the No. 1 overall pick in the draft. It’s amazing. To watch him play this year,
if he would have been the No. 1 pick in the draft, people would have been very
happy with the way he’s playing right now,he came out the same year the other three quarterbacks did [Alex Smith, Aaron Rodgers, Jason Campbell] and right now he’s better than those other three – and I’m including [Jay] Cutler in that. I would rather have Cassel than Cutler. So, to me, I think Cassel is more than worthy of being a guy that the Kansas City Chiefs or Detroit Lions go after. He’s played to the level of a No. 1 pick overall this year.”- Kiper

This draft class is extremely weak so it comes with perfect timing that this King of the Cassel situation comes up. Stafford and Sanchez both have big time weaknesses. Stafford has all the tools but his overall record does not show great leadership and he often plays quiet at times. Sanchez has only been playing one year as a starter and even his coach did not want him to come out to the Draft.

If I am the Lions or Cheifs I would make the trade in a heart beat and if I am the Pats I would do the same. So lets make this thing happen.
