Mock NFL Draft 2010

Posted by Stan Simmons on 4/20/2010 2:49:44 PM

The NFL Draft is upon us and as per usual, there is plenty of speculation flying through the air. Online betting cappers want to know if Ben Roethlisberger will get traded on draft day or what other bombshells we might hear. As per usual, the Oakland Raiders should do something very unorthodox come this Thursday and we’ll see plenty more surprises as well. The first round will be chalk full of linemen and here is our final mock NFL draft 2010.

1. St. Louis Rams Select Sam Bradford

Kurt Warner is long gone, Marc Bulger has been cut and Kyle Boller is not the answer. This team simply can’t go into the new year with the same situation at quarterback. There is potential for them to trade down and pick up a quarterback – say, Michael Vick – but for now, this is their solution to the problem. He’s the player they need most and this makes the most sense.

2. Detroit Lions Select Ndamukong Suh

NFL betting pundits believe that Suh is the best talent on the board and the Lions will gladly scoop him up at No. 2. He’s a dominant interior defensive lineman and not only do the Lions need that, head coach Jim Schwartz is a defensive guru who would love to have a weapon like Suh. Gerald McCoy is in the conversation but Suh will be the pick.

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Select Gerald McCoy

The Bucs also need a defensive lineman and rumor is that they prefer McCoy. Realistically, they would be happy with either and whoever Detroit doesn’t take, Tampa Bay will mop up.

4. Washington Redskins Select Trent Williams

The Washington Redskins have a quarterback now, they have running backs, which leaves them with the same concern: offensive line. Expect Mike Shanahan to get McNabb a blindside protector by adding Trent Williams. Williams is a better fit for Shanahan than Okung, which is why he gets the nod here.

5. Kansas City Chiefs Select Eric Berry

It wouldn’t be a surprise to see the Chiefs trade down here but if they don’t, they are likely to take Eric Berry. The Chiefs haven’t had a playmaker at safety in a good 15 years and Berry would fill that void. Drafting Russell Okung is an option but sportsbook odds makers aren’t expecting that when you consider that they already have a left tackle in Branden Albert.

6. Seattle Seahawks Select Russell Okung

They have neglected the offensive line for too long and they are definitely going to draft a lineman. The question is which one. Okung will be the top talent available but players like Bryan Bulaga will be present as well, making this a matter of personal choice.

7. Cleveland Browns Select Derrick Morgan

This is where the draft starts to get interesting. The Browns could go a number of ways – offensive line, running back, wide receiver, cornerback or linebacker. Our prediction is linebacker as Morgan is exactly what they need. He’ll be a hybrid linebacker and a pass rusher, which is what they need since they traded Kamerion Wimbley.

8. Oakland Raiders Selects Bruce Campbell

The Raiders usually shock the world but don’t be surprised if Tom Cable gets to make this pick. He knows the Raiders offensive line needs to improve and Campbell can help them do that.

9. Buffalo Bills Select Bryan Bulaga

The Bills are in dire need of an offensive line and a quarterback, but they are still evaluating QB’s so they have to blame the offensive line for now. Bulaga is a Iowa product so he won’t have a problem playing up in the cold of Buffalo.

10. Jacksonville Jaguars Select Jimmy Clausen

Most mock drafts have Earl Thomas going here but the Jags need to make a splash for a number of reasons. They need to send a message to David Garrard and they need to get their fan base excited again. Garrard isn’t the guy to take this team to the promise land and it’s time they found a quarterback who can.

11. Denver Broncos Select Rolando McClain

McClain is going to be an absolute stud in the pros and the sharp Broncos would be wise to pick him up here. Dez Bryant is an option, but the Broncos can wait on him a little bit and they may not even want him given his comparisons to Brandon Marshall. Keep that in mind.

12. Miami Dolphins Select Dan Williams

They need a nose tackle of the future and Dan Williams is their guy. They already made a splash in the offseason with a trade for Marshall, which means they have to play it safe in the NFL Draft. Williams is a Bill Parcells guy and he gives them solid interior line play that they need.

13. San Francisco 49ers Select Joe Haden

The 49ers are tired of seeing Larry Fitzgerald burn them up and down the field and that won’t happen in 2010 (because Kurt Warner retired). But they still need a playmaking cornerback. They could go for Kyle Wilson but look for them to go for the bigger brand name in Florida’s Joe Haden.

14. Seattle Seahawks Select C.J. Spiller

The Seahawks are one of four teams not to have a 1000-yard rushing in each of their last four seasons and they won’t pass him up. Chris Johnson had a monster season last year and the Seahawks will hope to see similar production out of Spiller.

15. New York Giants Select Jason Pierre-Paul

Look for the Giants to deal away Osi Umenyiora on draft day as his attitude is hampering the locker room. They still have Matthias Kiwanuka to team with Pierre-Paul, which is a win-win for the Giants. They need to get their pass rush back as the NFC East is always chalk-full of quality quarterbacks.

16. Tennessee Titans Select Jerry Hughes

17. San Francisco 49ers Select Mike Iupati

18. Pittsburgh Steelers Select Maurkice Pouncey

19. Atlanta Falcons Select Earl Thomas

20. Houston Texas Select Ryan Mathews

21. Cincinnati Bengals Select Jermaine Gresham

22. New England Patriots Select Sergio Kindle

23. Green Bay Packers Select Anthony Davis

24. Philadelphia Eagles Select Sean Witherspoon

25. Baltimore Ravens Select Jared Odrick

26. Arizona Cardinals Select Kareem Jackson

27. Dallas Cowboys Select Dez Bryant

28. San Diego Chargers Select Terrence Cody

29. New York Jets Select Nate Allen

30. Minnesota Vikings Select Roger Safford

31. Indianapolis Colts Select Charles Brown

32. New Orleans Saints Select Brandon Graham
