I think your concerns about Poe's effort and work ethic are well founded. From what I have read about him (and that's not a lot) he has all the tools to be an elite player. He doesn't always "play until the whistle" and is easy to take with out with a chop block. He needs to work on his technique.

Maybe Poe is just bored playing in C-USA and will do what it takes to be great when he starts facing great opponents. Or maybe he will get lazy once he gets his big payday.
I think Poe has high potential and is a high risk. If you are a gambling man, you weigh the risk against the reward. So the question is, "does the potential reward outweigh the risk?" At #11 I'm not sure. In the mid twenties or so, yeah, I would probably pull the trigger.
