If you look at the Lions draft position of #7, the point value is 1500 points.
The Patriots sitting at #15 is 1050pts.
You’d expect them to throw in their 2nd round #46 worth 440 points to make it an even trade. Nope the Patriots won’t do it.
Instead, the Patriots are value pickers and would probably offer something like their #15 (1050pts) + a 3rd (116pts) + 6th (17pts) or maybe 2 4th rounders (54pts) and (36pts) .
This means that the Lions would be getting 2 more lower picks instead of the 2nd rounder. Patriots will do it because they may get a top 5 QB and it’s points value in their favor. Lions will do it because they get 3 players for the cost of a top10 pick.
