Depends...if it was an 8th D that either fits the role properly (ie brings a skill that will be a benefit when it is integrated like an Engelland/Carkner/even Brookbank or Guenin), then I'd be offering a conditional pick based on how much the guy plays.
Lovejoy isn't one of those. He is a safe D with no strengths. He is Hendry-like (from what I've seen of Hendry). These are the guys you trade your "needs a change of scenery" for.
I would rather have given the pick for someone that has some kind of potential. A guy like Alex Grant probably could have been had for the pick, can play in Norfolk (when we need to reduce) and actually has a skill that would be beneficial to us (though admittedly, he is weaker in his own end).
