Already have 9 picks (granted 3 will be in the 200 range) and I'm not sure he drops much past 11 if at all. If you like him, take him there.
Fine with me. Getting a top 5 talent at #11 sounds like a plan.
There's no way in hell Pace gambles on two straight years of his first-round pick not playing his rookie season. Some other team picking between 10 and 20 who can afford to be patient on such a player will grab him. I'd be shocked if he falls far enough that we could trade back up and get him later, but would be all for doing so if that happens.
