I don't think that would get us anywhere near the top 20, much less top 10.

I know Blum/Ellis haven't been as solid as we'd have liked this year, but they're still worth waiting on a little while longer. Their still projects, but so would any kid drafted outside the top 10 or so. Might as well see if they can pan out than ship them off for another shot in the dark.

I wouldn't be surprised to see some movement to pick up another 2nd rounder though.
