  • 1st Round Mock (Sorry its not Sexy)

    Justin Fink
    NFL Mock Draft 2010
    February 23, 2010

    1.St. Louis Rams – Ndamukong Suh
    He is the best player in this draft. The Rams need a quarterback so watch for a trade with the Buccaneers to trade down and draft either a Jimmy Clausen or Sam Bradford.

    2.Detroit Lions – Gerald McCoy
    McCoy is an impact defensive lineman and the Lions just need to continue to add talent to a roster lacking it. Other options would be drafting Russell Okung or Eric Berry. Like the Rams; potential suitor for the Buccaneers.

    3.Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Eric Berry
    They draft Berry because they missed out on the cream of the crop. They seem poised for a move but like the teams ahead of them they are a talent depleted roster that needs to keep its picks and draft a defensive tackle in the later rounds of a very rich defensive tackle draft.

    4.Washington Redskins – Sam Bradford
    First pick I am apprehensive about. I am not going to argue whether he or Clausen is better but with Shanahan coming in I would expect a move for a quarterback. Plain and simple.

    5.Kansas City Chiefs – Rusell Okung
    They need to protect their large investment in Matt Cassell. Branden Albert is going to be either a great left guard or right tackle but an upgrade is needed at left tackle.

    6.Seattle Seahawks– Jimmy Clausen
    Pete Carroll and new coaches often draft quarterbacks when they get hired. That being said and Bradford off the board leads me to this choice. Clausen has pro experience and can learn from a respected veteran for a year or two before taking the reigns. (Plus Carroll has track record when dealing with diva players and it never hurt him at USC)

    7.Clevealnd Browns – Joe Haden
    Slam pick of the draft. If the Browns screw this one up Mike Holmgren and Eric Mangini should be fired.

    8.Oakland Raiders – Anthony Davis
    One of their biggest needs + most athletic in draft = Raiders Pick

    9.Miami Dolphins trade from Bills – Dez Bryant
    They get a number one wide receiver without mortgaging their future. Bill Parcells has dealt with his fair share of divas and Bryant seems to be on the low end of the spectrum with regards to that.

    10.Denver Broncos – Rolando McClain
    Though I feel he is overrated, I find someone will fall in love with his blend of size and speed. He is a good fit for the 34 defense though and the only other direction the Broncos could go here I feel is defensive tackle by reaching for Dan Williams (Note: They showed last year they don’t mind doing that if it fits a large enough need; though with very little success)

    11.Jacksonville Jaguars – Derrick Morgan
    This franchise is still burnt by Derrick Harvey not panning out. Doesn’t he eerily remind you of Jason Pierre Paul? I don’t see them going that direction.

    12.Buffalo Bills (Dolphins Pick)– Bryan Bulaga
    They made a mistake by trading Jason Peters, they made a mistake when they passed on Michael Oher, do they make a mistake and ignore the offensive tackle position again? I hope not for whoever is playing quarterback next year.

    13.San Francisco 49ers – Jason Pierre Paul
    Athletic 34 OLB prospect that would create a huge problem as far as matchups go with the defensive weapons they could deploy. I don’t like Pierre Paul. Athletically reminds me of Jevon Kearse but so did Jamal Anderson from Arkansas a few years ago.

    14.Seattle Seahawks – C.J. Spiller
    Dyanamic playmaker that has the upside of Chris Johnson and downside of Reggie Bush. I think Pete Carroll could find a use for him. Additionally, Carroll loves runningbacks with versatility as can be shown from his days at USC.

    15.New York Giants – Dan Williams
    They are continually upgrading their defensive line. While they could use a middle linebacker to fill the void left by Antonio Pierce I think its more likely they go back to the well.

    16.Tennessee Titans – Carlos Dunlap
    Kinda of sick of this pick being used in mock drafts but he fits as far as value, defensive end mold, and they have the stability to take on a chance with potential large dividends.

    17.San Francisco 49ers – Trent Williams
    I don’t believe in Trent Williams as a pro prospect. He has the measurable but the man is not what his press clippings would lead you to believe. He is a right tackle in the NFL and the 49ers would be a good fit with Joe Staley in place.

    18.Pittsburgh Steelers – Earl Thomas
    Cant have a repeat of last year with poor secondary play if Polamalu gets hurt. That being said, they are trying to resign Ryan Clark so they may be leaning another direction with this pick. Dan Williams? Offensive Tackle? Mike Iupati?

    19.New England Patriot trade up for Atlanta Choice – Brandon Graham
    I love Brandon Graham and some smart general manager will draft him and play him either at defensive end or outside linebacker. He may be undersized for DE but he displays a strong ability to play the run.

    20.Houston Texans – Taylor Mays
    a.The freefall ends although I think he is taking too much of a beating from different members of the draftnik community. The man can still play and the lack of big plays I don’t believe is vindictive of his ability. Safety production fluctuates every year. Mays will be a solid player.

    21.Cincinnati Bengals – Golden Tate
    They offense needs aerial playmakers and Golden Tate will be everything they hoped to get by overpaying Laverneus Coles.

    22.Atlanta Falcons (from Patriots) – Kareem Jackson
    They need cornerback help and it’s a race between Jackson, Kyle Wilson, Patrick Robinson and Perrish Cox. Atlanta trades down because it can pick up a second round pick from New England to replace the one they lost from the Tony Gonzalez trade.

    23.Green Bay Packers – Bruce Campbell
    Offensive Line help is needed here because it appears to be the key to the offense. Aaron Rodgers has playmakers and the defense still needs help but as long as he can sling it they keep it at the very least close.

    24.Philadelphia Eagles – Navarro Bowman
    The best run stuffing linebacker in this class in my mind won’t be the high impact player but a solid contributor that will help fill a lot of holes. They could also look safety because with the loss of Dawkins there is a lot to be desired.

    25.Baltimore Ravens – Arrelious Benn
    I don’t think he is a sure fire first rounder but a solid combine plus the immense need of the Ravens will make this pick happen. Alternatives is trading this pick to either Arizona or Broncos for one of their top pass catchers.

    26.Arizona Cardinals – Terrence Cody
    They need to stop the leakage in the middle of their run defense. This is a huge risk because of Cody’s endurance problems but they simply can’t be shredded anymore and need to make a move. Alternatives is drafting an offensive tackle, tight end, cornerback or surprise us all with a quarterback.

    27.Dallas Cowboys – Mike Iupati
    With how important their running game is, run blocking linemen are at a premium. I would suggest a safety if one was worthy of this selection. Iupati is rumored to be liked by the Boys and he falls to them in this mock.

    28.San Diego Chargers – Jonathan Dwyer
    I am concerned with his work ethic, ability to stay in shape, and schematic issues but they are desperate for a runningback and he’s the a good fit for their style. (Best is too similar to Sproles to be a possibility in my mind)

    29.New York Jets – Jared Odrick
    Consumate professional who will be a hardworker and fit in as their future 34 defensive end. It will take time to transition but Odrick gets high marks for his work ethic.

    30.Minnesota Vikings – Sean Witherspoon
    Ben Leber can be upgraded upon and depth are a major concern. That being said, I believe they could also go corner at this spot and there are no shortage of candidates for that position at this value point.

    31.Indianapolis Colts – Everson Griffen
    I think they need to provide some back up for the bi-annual Dwight Freeney Injury and he has the physical dimensions.

    32.New Orleans Saints – Aaron Hernandez
    They rotate TEs like crazy and Shockey still has some years left but they always add more and more weapons plus the Shockey injury effected them, even if it didn’t cost them.

    Notables Missing:
    Jermaine Gresham - injury concerns need to be alleviated + not a lot of need for tight ends as most of the teams at the end of the first round already have a solid tight end or they have more pressing needs.

    Let me know if you think there are aggregious errors, people I forgot, and of course comments on choices. Please keep it civil.

    I wouldn't trade up for Graham. Neither Houston or Cincy would take him.
    If we trade up, it would be for Mays.

        Atlanta likes Seniors, who are hard working and productive. meaning Cox or Wilson would be the pick if we go CB. not Jackson.

          Tough to do the bolded part.

          lets just summarize:
          position makes no sense
          player fit makes no sense
          player value makes no sense

          basicly there is not much about this pick that makes sense to me


          Saints 2014 draft wish list:
          - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
          - Corner or Wideout in the first
          - No reaching
          - No Kelvin Benjamin

            If Kindle is on the board I don't think there is any way we would pass him up. Still I wouldn't be against taking Cody although years of Branch and his weight problems might make the front office wary.

              Anthony Davis is a legit pick.

                  Wow, not only does Parcells never draft WR's in the 1st round, he certainly doesn't trade UP for them. I'd be ok with it if it happened, but it's not very likely IMO based on his past draft history. Standing pat and selecting JPP or Sergio Kindle at #12 is much more likely.

                  Dolphins Dream Draft: 1. Jaylon Smith 2. Artie Burns 3. Landon Turner

                    Like the Bucs pick. If McCoy and Suh are gone, we should either draft Berry or trade down.

                      That's a good point but I think Atlanta could concievably take him but th thought process was that Atlanta Wanted to trade down so I will have to review it

                        OT is not a first round need for KC.

                          This is possibly the worst pick I have seen so far in the mock drafts for the Saints....

                          Nevermind, it is the worst.

                            I doubt the Pats would make such a dumb move.
                            My sig pic has now come full circle. Lucky me.

                            No offense, but your Raiders draft sucks.
