MarkieMark's dream 2010 Redskins mock: Updated 4/9
Round 1- OT Brian Bulaga- Iowa
Round 4- OT Sam Young- Notre Damn
Round 5- C John Estes- Hawaii
Round 7- RB/WR/KR/PR Trindon Holliday- LSU
He was my #1 OT heading into this season. He dropped off a bit because of his inconsistency. Brandon Graham embarrassed him and he did not look great against Schofield. With that being said, when he is playing well he is the best OT in this draft. He is probably the top run blocker of any LT in this draft. He consistently gets a great drive and always keeps his feet pumping. He's got a great frame and is very athletic. He is technically sound in pass pro and has really good feet. Although he plays pretty low for a guy his size, if he does struggle its because he needs anchor against the bull rush. Also needs to improve on using his hands. I really expect him to rise as we get closer and closer to the draft as he should test out very well. He should compete to be the second OT taken. Any notion that Bruce Campbell is a better player or prospect is ridiculous. Bulaga and Campbell are physically comparable but Bulaga is ten times the player Campbell is.
I may be in the minority, but I'm not sure I like the idea of him protecting my QBs blindside. I've heard from a few Iowa fans, even here, that the line played better when he was out injured.
He's a big guy, athletic....but I'm not sure I'd spend a top 20 pick on him. I do, however, think he'll go that high because like QBs, OTs usually get pushed up draft boards as well. Once the top guys are gone, some team desperate for him in the 15-20 range will probably grab him and hope for the best.
Good for him, but he should have stayed. He needs to work on his pass protection. Sure, he's a road grader in the running game, but I prefer a LT that can protect the QBs blind side and Bulaga is alright at it. He's athletic but he gets beat, he needs to use his hands better and hold less, he does it a lot and it doesn't get called. He needs to be more stout in the passing game.
