I don't have much experience with Silkens. But I know Whippets tend to throw crypts and late droppers all the time. Not so much in Borzoi.
To me, this sounds like a shady breeder. Anyone who sells a crypt for show potential price is a nut. And to suggest that all the puppies are worthy of being top pick is insane. They may all be showable, but they are not all equal.
I know in my Deerhound's litter, all puppies are show quality. Not all will be shown, though, since the breeder was more concerned with getting them good homes, vs. show homes. But there was one that was a late dropper. He had dropped by the time he left at 10 weeks, though.
