Should we let time expire?

We have been discussing possible trade possiblities for a while and Denver seems to be a possible option, but lets say for a second that we can not get a trade partner allowing us to drop out of the Top 10. What to do now? Should we select the BAP? Personally I say if we can not find a trading partner we should simply let the clock expire...ala Minnisota Vikings.

Last Year Rookie Contracts:

#8 Derrick Harvey - 33.4 Million total possible money, 17.174 Million Guaranteed

#9 Keith Rivers - 23 Million total possible, 15.6 Million Guaranteed

#10 Jerod Mayo - 18.9 Million total possible, 13.8 Million Guaranteed

#11 Leodis McKelvin - 19.4 Million total possible, 12.6 Million Guaranteed

Available Players:

Now the players available at the #8 pick could vary a lot but it is probably safe to say that Stafford, Curry, Smith, Monroe and most likely Crabtree as well. If you take these 5 players off the board then the BAP at #8 could be the following players: Jeremy  Maclin, Brian Orakpo, Mark Sanchez, B.J. Raji, Aaron  Maybin and Everette Brown.

Personally none of these players in my opinion warrant paying a possible 33 million total, probably even more this year. If the Jaguars cant trade out of this position then if we simply let the clock expire then we could drop back to the 10th or 11th pick and pick up a Maclin, Maybin or Everette for almost 15 million less then at #8.
