Of course this all depends on where we draft, especially if it is a full season lockout. But thats a whole other debate in itself.
My bet is that we end up drafting outside of the top-5. Just a gut instinct honestly, and if that's the case and we wind up with Shinkaruk, I don't think we'll be disappointed.

I know more than a handful of people who would've looked at taking Shinkaruk first or second overall last year, and with good reason. The only reason he isn't in the debate for the top 2 this year is that it's such a deep draft.
