That was pretty much my thought. They may have been keeping an eye on him and when they sensed he was about to go off the board, they made a move with what are usually "garbage time" picks to make sure they landed him. Based on what happened after that pick, I think he was the last guy they really set their sights on, and based on how good their draft was to that point they just decided to gamble with house money on the picks after that.
