The Lions have several alternatives, not all of which require paying top draft pick money. With several quality players available to fill several needs, why not negotiate with several players. I find it hard to believe that someone projected as a 4th or 5th pick would not lcok in 3d pick money (or even a 10th pick taking 5th pick money) by agreeing to a contract in advance. This leverage could also be used on the top picks, who might take less rather than see themselves drop because of financial reasons.
