Don't rule out PG at pick 10

From ESPN.com writer Chad Ford's NBA Draft Blog in regards to his observations from the Chicago Pre-Draft Combine:

Avery Bradley and Eric Bledsoe were both helped by two straight days of great shooting and hustle. I would love to see those two go at it in workouts. Their first one together is scheduled for Indiana in early June. If one really shines, he could convince the Pacers, who are in desperate need of a point guard, to grab him at No. 10.

I don't think it's out of the question for the Pacers to use their first round pick this year on a point guard - let me rephrase that: I don't think it will soon be out of the question for the Pacers to use their first round pick this year on a point guard.  As of now (prior to any individual workouts), both Bradley and Bledsoe are considered reaches at the 10th pick.  However, with more exposure, I believe both of these players will skyrocket up most draft boards.

For the purposes of this FanPost, let's flashforward to June 24 (one month away!) and assume the Pacers were neither able to acquire additional first round draft picks nor were they able to move up in the draft.  Let's also assume that Bradley and Bledsoe impressed during their individual workouts.  Which of the two point guards fits best with the Indiana Pacers and would be a realistic selection at the 10 spot as a potential franchise point guard?
