I don't care how tough he is or how much he fights or sticks up for his teammates. You don't use #10 picks on 3rd pairing defensemen. Picking him at #10 I'd love for him to develop into a #2 defenseman, but quite honestly that is highly unlikely. Top 4 defenseman that we can rely on in his own end and I'll live with the pick.
Bust might be a bit extreme...but yeah, it would be a big disappointment. At #10 we should be looking at a 2nd pair guy with upside.
