DA's 2010 NFL Mock Draft (2 rounds) *12/10/2009

2010 NFL Mock Draft

1st Round


1. Cleveland Browns:               

Ndamukong Suh           DT       Nebraska

Talk about talent, WOW! This guy is a freak! I’ve never seen such a dominating force in a high level D-1 game. Did you see the game against Texas? A Man among boys!!! How could he NOT go #1?


2. TampaBay Buccaneers:      

Eric Berry         S          Tennessee

Berry challenges Suh as the most physically gifted defensive player in this class and has the ball skills to dominate at CB as well. Almost a lock to be a Pro-Bowler within 2 years.


3. St. Louis Rams:       

Jake Locker     QB       Washington

Locker has all the tools to be a star and he already has the NFL talent scouts drooling. His tools make him the 1st QB chosen, but is he fundamentally ready to take over right away?


4. Detroit Lions:           

Russell Okung              OT      Oklahoma St.

The Lions have a huge investment in Matthew Stafford, and he seems to be the real deal, but he’s taking a beating this year. They NEED to keep him healthy! If they have even an ounce of common sense, they will take the best Offensive Tackle available.


5. Washington Redskins:          

Jimmy Clausen  QB       Notre Dame

Campbell’s time is up. The ‘Skins need an upgrade. They’ve bought themselves a D-line, so they’ll address their offense this year.


6. Kansas City Chiefs:

Gerald McCoy             DT       Oklahoma

The Chiefs desperately need help up the middle and they should thank their lucky stars if McCoy falls to them.


7. Oakland Raiders:     

Ryan Mallett                 QB                   Arkansas

Mallett is the big, strong-armed, Al Davis-type- but is he more than just an overhyped blue chip recruit? I’m a huge Michigan fan, so I’ve followed him, and I haven’t seen proof yet that he has learned how to win or to quickly make even College-level reads.


8. Denver Broncos- (Chicago):            

Carlos Dunlap DE       Florida

Dunlap is huge, yet explosive and he’s been downgraded to a simple lapse of judgment. Everyone will remember what a talent he is after the Combine. He will be an impact player as a rookie.


9. Buffalo Bills:

Sam Bradford-             QB-     Oklahoma

The Bills need an upgrade at QB if they want to build the explosive offense they seem to think they can build.


10. San Francisco 49ers- (Carolina):    

Thaddeus Gibson         OLB/DE            Ohio St.

Lawson has been a disappointment and the Niners need to improve their pass rush. Gibson has that type of explosive ability and would be a strong pick up.


11.  Seattle Seahawks: 

C.J. Spiller       RB       Clemson

The Seahawks are giddy to find the ultra-explosive Spiller still available. Spiller is absolutely dynamite! - a Chris Johnson-type back.


12. San Francisco 49ers:         

Taylor Mays                 S          USC

Mays is as big as a linebacker and as runs like a cornerback, and will deliver a vicious hit to anyone who goes over the middle. Instantly upgrades the Niners secondary.                


13. Tennessee Titans:               

Terrence Cody             DT       Alabama

This is far too high for such a high risk selection, but look at what happened to Tennessee’s defense when they lost Albert Haynesworth. Cody is completely dominant at times, even in the ultra-competitive SEC, and is absolutely enormous at 6’5”, 365 lbs! If not Cody, I expect them to make a play at some other space-eating lineman.       


14. Houston Texans:    

Trent Williams              OT       Oklahoma

Schaub is having a magnificent year this year and the Texans have a great passing game when TE Daniels is healthy. But Schaub is fragile, and the Texans need to keep him on his feet.


15. New York Jets:

Derrick Morgan            DE                   Georgia Tech

Morgan is big and shows explosion and closing speed. He is quite sound fundamentally and has tremendous upside potential.         


16. Miami Dolphins:

Dez Bryant       WR      OklahomaState

Like the Lions, the Jets have a big investment in their QB of the future And what the Jets really need is a go-to WR for Sanchez to throw to. Bryant is kind of getting jobbed by the NCAA this year, but is still the most talented wideout in the draft.


17. Atlanta Falcons:     

Cameron Heyward       DE       Ohio State

John Abraham is the only guy who puts pressures the QB, and he’s ancient. Heyward is extremely talented and fills a need.   


18. Jacksonville Jaguars:          

Joe Haden        CB       Florida

Haden is easily the best CB in this draft. He is an exceptional athlete and has the potential to by a true shut-down corner. Great value at this spot.


19. Pittsburg Steelers:              

Rolando McClain         MLB                Alabama

James Farrier is getting long in the tooth and McClain is a natural leader who will make the Steelers linebackers an even more dominant group.      


20. New York Giants:             

Brandon Spikes            MLB                Florida

Extremely productive against top level competition. Spikes is a complete LB who will become an emotional team-leader, like Ray Lewis.


21. Baltimore Ravens:              

Brandon LaFell WR      LSU

The Ravens have a strong running game and while they have a great talent in Flacco at QB, he can only do so much until he has adequate weapons to throw to.                   

22. Dallas Cowboys:               

Mardy Gilyard              WR      Cincinnati

Roy Williams is extraordinarily overrated and Romo needs another weapon across from Miles Austin.


23. New England Patriots:       

Corey Wooton             DE                   Northwestern

Patriots must find someone to replace Richard Seymour and continue to bring new blood into an aging defense. 


24. Green Bay Packers:                       

Mike Iupati       G         Idaho

The Packers need some mouth-smashers to re-establish their smash-mouth running game.         


25. Philadelphia Eagles:            

Jon Asamoah                G         Illinois

The Eagles must protect the aging McNabb and add protection to their explosive athletes all over the field. Asamoah would be a great road grader for LeSean McCoy and protection up the middle.


26. Arizona Cardinals:

Germaine Gresham       TE        Oklahoma

Gresham is an athletic TE who would make a great offense downright ridiculous.           


27. Seattle Seahawks- (Denver):          

Bryan Bulaga        OT               Iowa

Seahawks really need an upgrade of their O-line and a replacement for the imminent retirement of Walter Jones. It seems that all Big Ten O-Tackles are safe, solid plays (Jake Long, Joe Thomas, etc…) and Bulaga is no different.


28. Cincinnati Bengals: 

Dan Williams                DT                   Tennessee

This Bengals team is suddenly looking quite solid, but they could still use a little help up the middle of their run D. Williams is the big run-stuffer they need.           


29. San Diego Chargers:          

Jonathan Dwyer            RB       Georgia Tech

Tomlinson is wearing down and Sproles isn’t solid enough to be an every down back.   


30. Minnesota Vikings:

Tony Pike:                    QB                   Cincinnati

Obviously the Vikings need a succession plan for when Favre finally wears out… if he ever does.                                  


31. New Orleans Saints:          

Sergio Kindle               OLB/DE          Texas

Saints have a surprisingly good Defense this year, but it’s either just tremendous coaching or smoke and mirrors. Their OLB’s are only serviceable, and the explosive Kindle would be a great addition.


32. Indianapolis Colts:

Golden Tate                 WR                  Notre Dame

Gonzalez, Garcon, and Collie are all simply products of having Peyton Manning throwing to them. Think if they added an actual dynamite talent to his arsenal.
