2010 *NFL* Mock Draft     (11/24/2009)

 

**How's this for an early mock draft? When you're a Lion's fan like me, the draft IS my Super Bowl, and maybe with Millen gone they might pick some guys who contribute to the talent level of the team.- (I will try to update my predictions weekly)

 

1st Round

 

1. Cleveland Browns:               

Jimmy Clausen-            QB-     Notre Dame

Generally, terrible teams are better off drafting talent over positional need, but damn! Have you seen their offense!

 

2. TampaBay Buccaneers:      

Ndamukong Suh-         DT-      Nebraska

            Speaking of drafting talent, WOW! This guy is a freak!

 

3. St. Louis Rams:       

Sam Bradford-             QB-     Oklahoma

Bulger is getting old and they need an upgrade anyways. They’ve gone D-line the last 2 years (and bombed on both) so they’ll address their offense this year.

           

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 gained even an ounce of common sense, they will take the best Offensive Tackle available.

 

5. Kansas City Chiefs:             

Eric Berry-       S-        Tennessee

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

 

6. Oakland Raiders:     

Carlos Dunlap-             DE-      Florida

Al Davis is borderline senile who’s only rational thought process is “who’s the best athlete?” (I’m a Lions’ fan, but even I feel bad for Raiders fans lately). Dunlap is huge, yet agile, and he actually would be a good pick.

 

7. Washington Redskins:          

Tim Tebow-     QB-     Florida

Daniel Snyder loves to be high-profile, and Tebow is as glamorous as they get. He might not be a stereotypical pro-prospect, but I’ve never seen more of a winner than this guy. He’s like Vince Young with a winner’s mentality.

 

8. Buffalo Bills:            

Gerald McCoy-            DT-      Oklahoma

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

 

9. Seattle Seahawks:    

Trent Williams  OT       Oklahoma

LT Walter Jones is now officially as old as the hills (and injured), and nobody…. Hasselbeck, Manning, Brady….nobody, is an effective quarterback without an offensive line.

 

 

10. 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 dominant at times, 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 DT.

 

11. San Francisco 49ers- (Carolina):    

Joe Haden        CB       Florida

The 49ers are quietly building a solid team, led by a stout defense. Haden is the best CB on the board and would team nicely with Nate Clements on the other side.

 

12. New York Jets:     

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’s kind of getting jobbed by the NCAA this year, but is still the most talented wideout.

 

13. Denver Broncos- (Chicago):          

Cameron Heyward       DE       Ohio State

            Perfect 3/4 DE with size, power, and speed. Extremely talented and fills a need

 

14. San Francisco 49ers:         

Bryan Bulaga        OT               Iowa

Niners really need an upgrade of their O-line. It seems that all Big Ten O- Tackles are safe, solid plays (Jake Long, Joe Thomas, etc…) and Bulaga is no different.

 

15. Miami Dolphins:                 

Arrelious Benn  WR      Illinois

Dolphins have a strong running game and while they seem to feel good about Chad Henne at QB, he can only do so much until he has adequate weapons to throw to.          

 

16. Baltimore Ravens:               Sergio Kindle               OLB/DE                      Texas

The Ravens opt to fortify their already stout defense with possibly the most explosive edge rusher in the draft.

 

17. Atlanta Falcons:      Taylor Mays                 S          USC

Mays is huge and fast and delivers a vicious hit over the middle. Instantly upgrades the Falcons secondary.        

 

18. Seattle Seahawks- (Denver):           C.J. Spiller       RB       Clemson

The Seahawks are giddy to find the ultra-explosive Spiller with their second pick in the 1st round. Spiller is dynamite- a Chris Johnson type back.

 

19. Jacksonville Jaguars:           Brandon LaFell WR      LSU

The Jags have lots of high draft picks all over the place. If even half of them perform to their talent level, the WR position across from Mike Sims-Walker is one of the main weak spots.

 

 

20. Green Bay Packers:            Mike Iupati       G         Idaho

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

 

21. New York Giants:              Nate Allen        S          South Florida

Kenny Phillips’ future is in doubt and the Giants could really use a physical, ball-hawking Safety anyways. Allen is a solid pro prospect.       

 

22. Houston Texans:                 Arthur Jones                 DT       Syracuse

Texans already have a strong D-line on the ends, but Jones would be a great fit in the middle.                

 

23. Pittsburg Steelers:               Jon Asamoah                G         Illinois

The Steelers must regain their identity and reestablish a strong running game. Asamoah would be a great road grader for fellow Illini alum, RB Rashard Mendenhall.

 

24. Philadelphia Eagles: Ricky Sapp      DE       Clemson

Eagles could use a pass rusher opposite Trent Cole and Sapp would be a strong pick up.

 

25. Cincinnati Bengals:  Jared Odrick    DT       PennState

Bengals team is suddenly looking quite stout, but they could still use a little help up the middle of their run D.      

 

26. Dallas Cowboys:                Anthony Davis  OT       Rutgers

            Dallas’ O-line is getting long in the tooth, especially at Tackle.

 

27. Arizona Cardinals:  Greg Hardy                  OLB/ DE         Mississippi

Super-athletic DE in college. Possible speed rusher in a 4-3, but best suited as a strong, powerful OLB.

 

28. New England Patriots:        Brandon Graham          OLB/ DE         Michigan

Patriots must continue to bring new blood into an aging defense (and besides, their offense is stacked for now anyways).

 

29. San Diego Chargers:           Vince Oghubaase         DT       Duke

Look at what happened to the Chargers entire defense when NT Williams went down. They need insurance against that type of collapse.  Oghubaase will be shooting up the draft boards before too long.  

 

30. Minnesota Vikings: Jake Locker     QB       Washington

Locker has all the tools to be a star- but is he fundamentally ready? Vikings have little choice but to go with the best QB available since Favre is already cheating Father Time. A “young Favre will be tutored by the Brett Favre”

 

31. New Orleans Saints:           Travis Lewis     OLB    Oklahoma

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 Lewis would be a great addition.

 

32. Indianapolis Colts: Charles Brown OT       USC

There’s no player more crucial to his team’s success than Peyton Manning. And there’s no player that’s more crucial to a QB’s health than his LT. Brown is the best available choice here.
