I doubt that. If SF position was covered, someone would find another loophole.

That said, I'm digging Ross. Anybody else notice how quick he is running shooters off the line and reacting to their first step? Quick feet, quick hands. He has tools be an elite defender, with a jumper. That's good value at 8, even if he doesn't develop much of a slashing game.
Wasn't Lamb taken before it was Raps' turn?
EDIT: My bad. Lamb was 12th pick. Sorry
