He might go in the top ten, but a lot depends on how he does in the combine.
Mel Kiper Jr. has him #6 on his big board, which does not include undeclared juniors.
Right now it looks like he will go in the first round. He would be stupid to give up football considering that he will make more playing football in the next 8 years than he will pitching in baseball. If he gets drafted high enough he might be asked to give up baseball by his NFL team (what good is a wide receiver with a torn rotar cuff?)
