The #1 pick is going to get paid a ton no matter who it is. The Lions need to take the best player for their team. Stafford's choice to go with the same agent as Matt Ryan has to have at least something to do with the fact that Ryan and Atlanta agreed on a contract within a month of the draft and Ryan never missed a single workout, practice or anything. I don't see him being a contract issue. Living in the same state as Ryan last year means Stafford could easily read and hear about the things Ryan was doing and learn from them. If the Lions take someone other than Stafford to save money, it will cost them wins in the long term.
