That doesn't mean they will stop picking them. Just not as many as before, and likely they will be mid to late round picks and the team hopes it can talk the player into coming.
They only drafted 8 players this year. Numbers simply cannot drop even further. Those 8 on average are simply too skilled to skip them.
