Ok here's my second version of the first round and I added a second round as well. The first version (one round) can be found here http://draftcountdown.com/forum/showthread.php?t=38368. A lot of guys moved around quite a bit with the changes I made. I've also included the best players available at the end of the 2nd round. Let me know what you think.



Round 1

1 Rams- DT Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska – Suh is the clear value pick with Jake Locker returning for his senior year. Spags is a D-line aficionado. He won’t pass on the kind of talent that Suh brings to the table.

2 Lions- DT Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma – Lions need talent on their DL badly. This pick is a no brainer after missing on Suh.

3 Buccaneers- CB/S Eric Berry, Tennessee – Though their defensive line is devoid of any game changing talent, the elite DT talent is off the board. The Bucs best move might be to trade down if they’re in this position. That being said, they will probably have a hard time finding a trade partner for such a premium pick. A lot of people have Derrick Morgan mocked to the Bucs in this situation. However, I feel that would be a mistake ala the Chiefs last year with Tyson Jackson. The Chiefs, who were in a very similar situation, had problem areas in many spots on their team. They reached for a defensive lineman, which was a position viewed as worthy of a premium pick. However, the pick hasn’t worked out thus far, they passed on a far better player in Aaron Curry, and they still have problems in the linebacker position. The Bucs decide not to make the same mistake and turn their attention to the secondary where Sabby Piscitelli was downright awful this past season and Jermaine Phillips won’t be returning after a season lost to injury and being arrested for domestic dispute where he choked a woman. Everyone knew about the Buc’s safety woes and everyone threw on them deep. That needs to change if they want to improve their 27th ranked defense.

4 Redskins- QB Sam Bradford, Oklahoma – Even though Snyder likes to make a splash, Bradford is a better fit at QB for the Skins and the overall better value. It makes sense to draft Bradford and give him a year to develop while they keep Jason Cambell around for one more year on a RFA tender. Even with top offensive line talent still on the board, quarterback is a shallow position this year and Shanahan will want to hand pick his QB to develop.

5 Chiefs- LB Rolando McClain, Alabama – Home run, slam dunk pick here. It was gonna come down to Berry or McClain for this pick and since Berry is gone, it’s a no brainer. The Chiefs desperately need play makers in their defense and they get one in their LB corps with McClain. I thought about Okung here, however the Chiefs still have Brandon Albert, who struggled through a sophomore slump but they still believe in, at LT, and Ryan O’Callaghan, who they consider a potential building block at RT. The offensive line needs for the Chiefs are on the interior and since there is no one there of worth, the Chiefs go with McClain.

6 Seahawks- QB Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame - The Seahawks still have Hasselbeck, however he’ll be 35 next season and it’s unclear how long he’ll be productive. With a new coaching staff in place, they’ll want to land their own QB to groom into their system. Clausen has a good skill set for the West Coast offense, which will stay in place in Seattle with Jeremy Bates running the show. The QB crop this year could be the thinnest of any position, so the Seahawks will take a quality QB while they have the chance. Offensive line, defensive line, and safety are all deep positions this year so they can wait for a later pick to address those needs.

7 Browns- CB Joe Haden, Florida – The Browns showed some potential down the stretch as a team that can put points up on the board. Their most pressing need is a QB but with both of the top talents off the board the Browns turn their attention to defense. Haden is the best player available on that side of the ball and plays a position that’s one of huge need. Easy pick.

8 Raiders- OT Anthony Davis, Rutgers – This pick came down to the two athletic freaks on either side of the trenches, Davis or Morgan. Al Davis once again befuddles us by passing on the higher ranked player (Okung) for the athletic freak. However, that doesn’t mean Davis is a bad pick. I still believe Al Davis will want to keep trying with the JaMarcus Russell disaster and that made the pick for me. He’s gonna give Russell every chance to succeed and he’ll fail, but he’ll at least try to help him with some more protection on the offensive line.

9 Bills- OT Russell Okung, Oklahoma State – With the Bills switching to a 3-4 defense, they suddenly have the need for defensive linemen to fit into the scheme. However with the best OT still on the board and no NT or 5-tech worth the pick, the Bills go with Russell Okung and get the franchise tackle that they desperately need.

10 Broncos (f Bears)- WR Dez Bryant, Florida – The writing is on the wall in Denver for Brandon Marshall. The Broncos will not pass on a talent like Bryant if he gets to them and Marshall is gone.

11 Jaguars- DE Derrick Morgan, Georgia Tech – Morgan finally comes off the board! The Jags get great value for him here. The Jags recently drafted Harvey and Groves, however their play was extremely underwhelming this year as they combined for 3.5 sacks. The bottom line is they need a pass rush or they won’t be able to stop teams on 3rd downs.

12 Dolphins- OLB/DE Sergio Kindle, Texas – Everyone knows the value that Parcells puts on OLBs, he drafts them everywhere he goes. With the Dolphins in need, the only question was which one. I decided on Kindle over JPP because he’s more of pro-ready player. JPP is a project and with Parcells getting old and with the Dolphins on the cusp of getting in to the playoffs, they take the plug and play potential of Kindle.

13 49ers- S Taylor Mays, USC – The 49er’s defense was an up and coming unit this past season. However, they lack a playmaker at the safety position to play next to Dashon Goldson and Michael Lewis can’t be counted on because of his concussion history. I believe Mays has all the tools to be an elite SS in this league. Also, Goldson has shown he has the ballhawking skills and range to stay at FS by picking off four passes this season. The pairing of Goldson and Mays will give the 49ers one of the best and most physical (a quality that coach Singletary surely values) tandems of safeties in the league. This defense can become elite next year.

14 Seahawks (f Broncos)- OT Bryan Bulaga, Iowa – With the retirement of Walter Jones and the escalator clause in Sean Locklear’s contract for playing at LT that the Seahawks will surely not want to pay, the Seahawks find themselves in desperate need for a LT. Protecting their new investment at QB will surely be a priority, so they get themselves an insurance policy with high potential in Bulaga.

15 Giants- S Earl Thomas, Texas – The Giants have had good experience with defensive backs from Texas before (Aaron Ross) and with Kenny Phillips stock taking a major hit due to injury, safety is a big need for the Giants. The Giants’ secondary was picked apart this season and even if Phillips returns healthy, which is a big if, they will still need safety help. That’s why the pick here is Thomas.

16 Titans- DE Jason Pierre-Paul, South Florida – Jevon Kearse no longer a freak and KVB didn’t deserve his pro-bowl bid. They are both players that are aging and declining quickly. The Titans need to get some replacements fast so they take the “Freak” #2. JPP will remind many people of a young Kearse and the Titans select in the same spot as the year they took Kearse. Are the stars aligning?

17 49ers (f Panthers)- OT Trent Williams, Oklahoma–With a new safety already on board, the 49ers’ major needs are at RT and ILB. RT is the bigger of the two needs and with no one worthy of the 17th overall selection at ILB, the 49ers aim to improve their offensive line play with Williams.

18 Steelers- NT Dan Williams, Tennessee – With an uncapped year looming and many more teams now playing a 3-4 defense, there’s a very real possibility that Casey Hampton will not be playing in a Steelers uniform next year. Not wanting to deal with Cody’s weight issues after dealing with Hampton’s throughout his career in Pittsburgh, the Steelers select Dan Williams as a replacement.

19 Falcons- DE Carlos Dunlap, Florida – Jamaal Anderson has been a massive bust and it seems as though John Abraham may be declining with only 5.5 sacks last year. A lot of people are saying that the Falcons need help in the secondary and although they could probably use some help there, not getting to the QB exposes the secondary that much more no matter who is back there.

20 Texans- DT Brian Price, UCLA– The Texans have shown that they are willing to pay a premium for defensive line talent. Though they have a need a running back, they are looking for a bruiser and there aren’t any players that meet that profile worthy of a Top-20 pick. Price is the perfect penetrating tackle they need to collapse the pocket and not allow the QB to step up and past the outside rush of Mario Williams. This pick may benefit him the most and if it works out, Williams may be in contention for the sack lead next season.

21 Bengals- TE Jermaine Gresham, Oklahoma – Carson Palmer is not the quarterback he used to be. This past season his throws were off target and at times erratic. I don’t believe a deep threat will help Palmer with his accuracy issues and I also don’t believe that there is a deep threat more worthy of this pick than Gresham. The Bengals also shuffled tight ends last season, desperately seeking and failing to find someone who could adequately do the job. Jermaine Gresham could be the solution to both problems. The Bengals will get a stud TE to hold down the position while giving Carson a BIG target for a safety valve. Suddenly intermediate routes in the middle of the field become relevant and defenses are given another dimension to consider. Also, the signing of Matt Jones may make even more unlikely that they take a WR with this pick.

22 Patriots- OLB/DE Brandon Graham, Michigan – The Patriots long revered linebacking corps are currently going through a major overhaul and it seems as though Adalius Thomas will be the odd man out this year. He was in Belicheck’s dog house for much of the season and didn’t see the field as often as you’d expect from his expected 4.9 million dollar salary for next season. In all likelihood, Thomas will be cut and the Patriots will need to find a replacement. Brandon Graham showed that he is an absolute beast during the Senior Bowl and I believe he’ll be highly valued by 3-4 teams as an OLB prospect despite his height. In fact, both Tully Banta-Cain and Derrick Burgess played OLB for the Pats this past season and are both only 6’2”. No way does he make it out of the first round.

23 Packers- OG Mike Iupati, Idaho – The Packers had offensive line woes last year, everyone knows that. Although top offensive tackle prospect, Campbell is still available, the Packers are said to be very interested in Iupati. Though LT was musical chairs position this past season, they still have young options there and have expressed interest in bringing Chad Clifton back as an insurance policy.

24 Eagles- OLB Sean Weatherspoon, Mizzouri – The Eagles played musical chairs with their LB corps last year. It’s about time they stopped playing around with mediocre starters and got someone with some talent in there. They could keep Stewart Bradley at MLB, Will Witherspoon at WLB, and plug in Sean Weatherspoon at SLB. This will give them quality starters in their LB corps and bolster their depth so they won’t have to rely on the likes of an old washed up Jeremiah Trotter again.

25 Ravens- WR Arrelious Benn, Illinois – The Ravens can probably get Mason to play for one more year, but after that he’s probably done. The Ravens need a #1 receiver prospect and they need it bad. Benn offers that sort of upside with his speed and size combination. He’ll have a year to prove he can live up to that sort of potential and be a formidable weapon for Flacco.

26 Cardinals- OT Bruce Campbell, Maryland –The Cardinals will have the arduous task this season of replacing Kurt Warner. Matt Leinart will take the helm and the Cardinals will most likely move the offense towards a run based attack. They could use an upgrade at LT and they want to give Leinart every chance to succeed so they select Bruce Campbell. The Cardinals have several other needs, especially at LB and CB. However, there is a huge drop off in quality after Campbell in terms of LT prospects so they snag him here while they can.

27 Cowboys- DT Terrence Cody, Alabama – The Cowboys already have a stud NT in Jay Ratliff. However, they also may have a need at 5-technique and Ratliff is a great penetrator. With this pick, the Cowboys could move Ratliff to DE and form a dominant front three with Cody’s run stuffing prowess. The Cowboys have much bigger needs at both the safety position and on the offensive line. However, all players remaining at those positions of need are not worth this pick so the Cowboys will wait for later rounds to fill those needs.

28 Chargers- RB CJ Spiller, Clemson – LaDainian Tomlinsin will not be back with the Chargers next year and with good reason as they ranked 32nd in yards per carry average. In the past few seasons, smaller running backs with elite quickness and agility have found success (see Chris Johnson, Jamaal Charles, Reggie Bush etc.). However, GM A.J. Smith does not see Darren Sproles as a three down back, so he’s not an option to replace LT. Spiller, although also a smallish back, is not nearly as small as Sproles. Spiller weighs in at 5’11” 195lb while Sproles measures 5’6” 185lb soaking wet. Spiller has the receiving skills to be a valuable asset in the passing game as well. He presents excellent value at this pick and that’s something that GM A.J. Smith has never been one to pass up.

29 Jets- CB Kyle Wilson, Boise State – Thought they had the best defense in the league last year, the Jets will be overhauling their secondary this offseason. They are expected to part ways with both Lito Sheppard and Donald Strickland. If that’s the case, they’ll need another CB to play opposite of Revis Island. Kyle Wilson was the most impressive corner at the senior bowl as he stayed step for step with receivers and showed shut down ability. Revis and Wilson could be a formidable set of corners for any QB to throw against.

30 Vikings- CB Perrish Cox, Oaklahoma State– Many Vikings fans will consistently say that CB is not a first round need for them. I whole heartedly disagree. This league is a passing league, which was shown by the two superbowl teams this year. To win on defense, you need a strong pair of cover corners. Antoine Winfield is turning 33 in June and was injury prone this past season. He can’t be counted on to contribute a full 16 games plus whatever postseason games they make it to. Cedric Griffin is coming off a major injury in the form of a torn ACL suffered during the NFC championship. It’s a full year injury and even if he’s ready to play for the season opener, he can’t be counted on to be the same player before the injury. Factor all that in and add the fact that the Vikings have little to no starting quality depth, and the Vikings’ first round pick is Perrish Cox, CB.

31 Colts- DT Jared Odrick, Penn State –The Colts have been searching for defensive tackle talent for some time now. They may have found a starter in Daniel Muir, however aside from him their search has not been successful thus far and so they need to upgrade at the position once again. Jared Odrick is a penetrating 3-technique that is perfect for the Colts’ scheme. His pressure up the middle will collapse the pocket with Mathis and Freeny wreaking havoc on the edges. QB’s won’t have much room to escape.

32 Saints- DE Everson Griffen, USC – The Saints think they found a building block on their defensive line with the addition of Sedrick Ellis and Will Smith has revitalized his career under Greg Williams pressure scheme. However, at the other positions along the defensive line the Saints have no one to write home about. Charles Grant will be 32 next season and he seemed to already be in decline before a torn triceps knocked him out for the second season in a row. The Saints need to provide pressure opposite of Will Smith to avoid double teams. That’s why they select Everson Griffen at the end of round 1 of the 2010 NFL draft.

Round 2

1 Rams- CB Patrick Robinson, FSU – The Rams have very little to speak of when it comes to CB talent. They have no one outside of Bartell that they can count on.

2 Lions- OT Vladimir Ducasse, Massachusetts – Lions OL situation is ugly. This pick will help to make sure their high paid investment, Stafford, doesn’t hit the turf as much in 2010.

3 Buccaneers- DE Greg Hardy, Ole Miss – The Bucs need play makers on their defensive line badly. Hardy has gobs of talent.

36 Chiefs- C Maurice Pouncey, Florida – Kansas City needs upgrades on the interior of their OL. Pouncey fits the bill.

37 Redskins- OT Charles Brown, USC – Redskins are forced to reach for offensive line talent given their situation.

38 Browns- DE/OLB Ricky Sapp, TCU – Kamerion Wimbley is a real player but he can’t live up to his potential constantly facing double teams. The Browns get a rush backer to take some pressure off from the other side.

39 Raiders- SS Chad Jones, LSU – Big and powerful, he fits the Al Davis prototype. The Raiders also seem hell bent on replacing members of it’s secondary.

40 Seahawks- RB Jahvid Best, Cal – The Seahawks grab a franchise running back to give their ground game a shot in the arm.

41 Bills- WR Brandon LaFell, LSU - The Bills get great value with this pick which will try to replace TO.

42 Patriots(f/JAC)- LB Brandon Spikes, Florida – Thumper and great fit for New England’s defense. Will make a great fit next to Jerod Mayo.

43 Dolphins- WR Demaryius Thomas, Georgia Tech – Big, strong, Parcells-type guy with the potential to be a #1 receiver. Exactly what the Dolphins were looking for.

44 Buccaneers(f/CHI)- WR Golden Tate, Notre Dame – Excellent value pick in a position of need. Tate dropped this far because he wasn’t seen as a true #1 receiver but I think he may prove some people wrong.

45 Denver Broncos- DE Corey Wooton, Northwestern – Big 5-tech to help the Broncos continue their conversion to a full 3-4 defense.

46 New York Giants- MLB Daryl Washington, TCU – Giants try to ease the loss of Antonio Pierce with this pick.

47 New England Patriots- RB Jonathon Dwyer, Georgia Tech – The Pats get a work horse back which allows them to move Maroney into a change of pace role.

48 Carolina Panthers- WR Damian Williams, USC – Steve Smith has been asking for more weapons on offense, so the Panthers give Matt Moore another toy to play with.

49 San Francisco 49ers- OLB/ILB Eric Norwood, South Carolina- The 49ers’ defense will be among the most formidable in the league with Mays and Norwood brought aboard. Will provide tremendous pass rush abilities opposite Lawson and may be able to move inside and replace Spikes further down the road.

50 Kansas City Chiefs(f/ATL)-FS Nate Allen, USF – The Chiefs need playmakers in their safety position. They upgrade one of those spots with this pick.

51 Houston Texans- RB Ryan Matthews, Fresno State – Kubiak is hell bent on getting a RB in the offense that will be able to carry the load and hit the defense hard. He gets his guy here.

52 Pittsburgh Steelers- CB Dominique Franks, Oklahoma – The Steelers need to infuse some youth into their CB corps.

53 New England Patriots(f/TEN)- TE Rob Gronkowski, Arizona – The Pats pick up a pretty good tight end to replace Ben Watson.

54 Cincinnati Bengals- S Morgan Burnett, Georgia Tech – The Bengals need an upgrade at safety where Williams, Ndukwe, and Crocker leave something to be desired.

55 Philadelphia Eagles- S Larry Asante, Nebraska – The Eagles could use an upgrade at safety which they attempt to do with this pick.

56 Green Bay Packers- DE/OLB Jerry Hughes, TCU – The Packers will need an OLB to pair with Matthews after Kampman moves on to a better fit as a 4-3 DE.

57 Baltimore Ravens- CB Kareem Jackson, Alabama – The Ravens’ CBs were littered with injuries last season. They need youth and depth which they get with this pick.

58 Arizona Cardinals- TE Aaron Hernandez, Florida – The Cardinals pick up another weapon, and perhaps more importantly, a safety valve to help Leinart succeed.

59 Dallas Cowboys- S Myron Rolle, FSU – Surprised to see him this early? I bet in a month you won’t be. I think he’s a starting caliber player, maybe pro bowl caliber. He helps to replace Hamlin, who’s decline was evident last year.

60 San Diego Chargers- DE Arthur Jones, Syracuse – The Chargers pick up a 5 tech to help infuse some youth and talent into their defensive line.

61 New York Jets- Mardy Gilyard WR Cincinnati – With no defensive lineman that fits their scheme worthy of this pick, the Jets get a playmaker and another weapon for Sanchez.

62 Minnesota Vikings- OLB Navarro Bowman, Penn State – Ben Leber is a borderline starter that can be upgraded. The Vikings can move Leber to the bench, bolstering their depth as well.

63 Indianapolis Colts- OG Rodger Saffold, Indiana – The Colts make a pick aimed at protecting the soon to be highest paid player in the NFL.

64 New Orleans Saints- DT Geno Atkins, Georgia – When Ellis was drafted, he was seen as having the ability to play both UT and NT. With this pick, the Saints move Ellis over to NT and pencil in Geno Atkins as starter in the 3 tech position.

If we wanted to draft a athletic safety wouldnt we pick Mays in the 1st? Plus didnt we just drafted a athletic SS last year in the 2nd? Safety is not a need.

Anthony Davis in the first is good, give us Washington or Spikes

Awesome.

Hughes would be tough to pass up for a TE b/c OLB is such a dire need - especially if Adalius gets the ax.

Lots of needs for NE this year . . .

Ok here's
11 Jaguars- DE Derrick Morgan, Georgia Tech – Morgan finally comes off the board! The Jags get great value for him here. The Jags recently drafted Harvey and Groves, however their play was extremely underwhelming this year as they combined for 3.5 sacks. The bottom line is they need a pass rush or they won’t be able to stop teams on 3rd downs.


They actually combined for 2 sacks. And both were Harvey's. You gave them too much credit with 3.5.

Great pick.

Clausen makes some sense and Bulaga fills a huge need but taking Jahvid Best over a power back like a Toby Gerhart is pretty foolish. Best is going to really struggle with staying on the field at the next level.

just because qb is a shallow position this year doesnt mean we need to force a pick in the first if it doesnt fit. ill leave it to allen and shanny but personally im not sure i believe the fit is there with bradford or clausen.

02-16-2010, 08:37 PM
Daryl Washington, Nate Allen, and Chad Jones are all better picks in the first.

I disagree. Though the draft probably would've worked out better for the Vikings if they had gone safety or linebacker first considering how the second round went, I feel that given the injuries and lack of depth they will value a top flight CB much higher than a safety. Also, I think all the alternatives you mentioned would be reaches at that pick. Maybe if one of them blows up the combine that'd be the better pick. But not until then.

That shouldn't be too hard for them to do with the way I've set it up. I'll probably add a third in the next version and you'll be able to see for yourself. Until then, you'll just have to wait in anticipation haha.

Either Bradford or Clausen work for me at 6, we need a QB of the future, and people saying "wait for Locker" ignore the fact that in all likeliehood Locker wont be there when the Seahawks pick next year.

Baluga is a great player at a position of need, AND he fits into Alex Gibbs scheme.

Jahvid Best is my favorite player in the draft. I dont agree that we need a power back tp pair with Forsett, Forsett is not a speed guy. He may be small but he runs with power and has done well in short yardage situations. Carroll likes to have speed backs, ala Reggie Bush, and Best fits perfectly. Hell if you want a power back, sign LenWhale.


The only thing that could make this better is to trade down from 14 for more picks. We could still get a great OT that fits Alex Gibbs scheme (Charles Brown) and fill more positions of need with quality players (S, DE, OG).

Earl Thomas' size will stop him from being a top 20 pick and DT is a bigger need for us which is why I think the pick will be Brian Price or Dan Williams come draft day.
