Cancer survivor will join Curry at draft
NEW YORK - Even during a quiet Midtown Manhattan lunch Thursday, Aaron Curry couldn't escape the NFL Draft hype.


TOP 25 DRAFT PROSPECTS

"In my heart, I think (the Lions) are going to get it done with Stafford," Curry said. "I know they have faith in both of us to become great players. They can't go wrong. They're really making their decision on a need basis. Quarterback for them is a more important need. I understand that."

Curry said he didn't have a "gut feeling" about where he will be drafted but would love to be reunited with a high school teammate. Coincidentally, defensive tackle Tank Tyler plays for the Chiefs.

"Kansas City would be the perfect scenario," Curry said. "I think it would be God's blessing that he put both of us back together again. When we were in high school, we made each other better every day in the weight room and on the practice field."

Funny he should mention E.E. Smith High in Fayetteville, N.C. When Ross tried discussing some draft-day scenarios Thursday, Curry changed the subject. He began talking about wanting to refurbish the school's weight room.

Wherever he lands, Curry plans to establish a charity foundation that will focus on helping single mothers and promoting St. Jude's leukemia research. He wants to work with Bryson Merriweather to promote bone-marrow donations.

"It's pretty cool to have someone like this as a friend," said Bryson, whose leukemia is now in remission after two years of treatment. "I never thought I'd get to be friends with someone who's getting drafted."

Where he will go, nobody knows. But Lorace Merriweather knows when Curry should be selected.

"He ought to go No. 1," Merriweather said. "He's got a No. 1 heart."
