VJCPatriot's 2010 NFL Mock Draft Post-Combine Edition
I am doing this mock as how the teams should pick, not how they will pick. That means no knuckle headed drafting for the Skins and Raiders who NEED to hit on their pick this year if they hope to hit .500 mark or better.
2010 NFL Draft
1. St. Louis (1-15). Ndamukong Suh DT. This team has a LOT of holes. They need to start rebuilding by adding the best player in the draft and the best defensive college player in the country. Look for a QB in round 2.
2. Detroit (2-14). Gerald McCoy DT. The second best defensive player in the nation helps shore up a sorry defense. Detroit still needs an LT but Okung doesn't look elite enough to trump McCoy's benefits.
3. Tampa Bay (3-13). Dez Bryant WR. Tampa Bay needs an injection of offense. This gives Freeman a weapon to throw to. Move over Clayton, there's a new #1 in town. This reminds me of the Fitzgerald/Boldin combo in the making.
4. Washington (4-12). Jimmy Clausen QB. Tough kid, big arm. Can throw on the run. He'll need to because he has no offensive line around him. Skins need to prioritize OT in round 2.
5. Kansas City (4-12). Russel Okung OT. This was easy. Cassel needs more than 1.5 seconds to throw. This big guy might give it to him.
6. Seattle (5-11). Sam Bradford QB. Seattle would have loved for Dez Bryant to drop this far. Now they'll have to look to address another need. How about QB? With Wallace gone and Hasselbeck retired, they need another signal caller. Brett Favre is NOT walking through that door... we think.
7. Cleveland (5-11). Eric Berry FS. Cleveland needs a lot of defensive help. Eric Berry looks like the next Ed Reed, and that will help their defense a lot.
8. Oakland (5-11). Dan Williams DT. The Raiders' defense needs a run stuffer. Williams will help the Raiders plug up the holes in the front 7. It's not a sexy pick but it's what they need.
9. Buffalo (6-10). Trent Williams OT. Buffalo lost Peterson and now they need to add a key piece to the OL. Williams helps them do that.
10. Jacksonville (7-9). Jason Pierre Paul DE. The Jags really, really want to draft Tim Tebow, but 10 would be an astounding reach for him. Instead they take a guy with the upside to be the next Jason Taylor to boost an anemic pass rush.
11. Denver - from Chicago (7-9). Derrick Morgan DE. Falls right into McDaniel's lap. Paired with Dumervil, Denver will quickly generate lots of pressure on opposing QBs.
12. Miami (7-9) - Sergio Kindle OLB. With Jason Taylor retiring, and Porter cut, the Dolphins need fresh blood at OLB to pair with Cameron Wake. Kindle is a tough, relentless linebacker that might remind Parcells about a certain LB he once coached.
13. San Francisco (8-8) - Bryan Bulaga OT. 49ers need to open up holes for their running game and protect their QB. Bulaga slides in from the get go.
14. Seattle - from Denver (8-8) - Bruce Campbell OT. Seattle needs to keep their new QB upright. Carrol's regime starts off with a bang. They will look for a receiver or RB in round 2.
15. New York Giants (8-8) - Rolando McClain MLB. Need meets talent. McClain's slide stops and the Giants plug in a run stopper and leader for their defense.
16. Tennessee (8-8) - Joe Haden CB. The Titans need a playmaker on defense and Haden is it. He may have run a slow 40 but he is still the first CB off the board.
17. San Francisco - from Carolina (8-8). Carlos Dunlap DE. The 49ers need to upgrade their pass rush up front and Dunlap has freakish size and speed.
18. Pittsburgh (9-7) - Mike Iupati G. The best guard in the draft fortifies the Steeler's offensive line.
19. Atlanta (9-7) - Sean Weatherspoon LB. Weatherspoon is a heady player and versatile athlete to plug into Dmitroff's Falcons defense.
20. Houston (9-7) - CJ Spiller RB. The Texans RB situation is uncertain. They pick up a premiere running threat far later than would be expected.
21. Cincinnati* (10-6) - Golden Tate WR. Cinci needs a playmaker, and Tate offers athleticism and playmaking in spades. Let's pretend they don't sign TO as well, but they probably will.
22. New England* (10-6) - Jared Odrick DE. The Pats would really like to trade down from this spot, but if they can't, they'll take the best DL left on the board.
23. Green Bay* (11-5) - Anthony Davis OT. Packers need to protect Rogers better for their offense to succeed.
24. Philadelphia* (11-5) - Brandon Graham OLB. The Eagles need help at OLB and Graham gives them a passrushing threat on the outside as well.
25. Baltimore* (9-7) - Everson Griffen DE. Griffen had a fantastic combine. With Gregg and Pryce getting OLD, Griffen fills a position of need.
26. Arizona* (10-6) - Devin McCourty CB. Arizona's secondary got scorched in the playoffs. They get an athletic, talented kid at a position of need.
27. Dallas* (11-5) - Roger Saffold OT. The Cowboys are stacked with talent but they need fresh blood to restock an aging OL.
28. San Diego* (13-3) - Ryan Matthews RB. Matthews has the size and speed combo to be a feature back and the Chargers will need him after letting LDT go.
29. New York Jets* (9-7) - Taylor Mays S. The Jets need a safety and Taylor Mays needs a new home.
30. Minnesota* (12-4) - Kyle Wilson CB. This team is stacked and really doesn't have many glaring holes. They could use some improved corner play.
31. Indianapolis* (14-2) - Brian Price DT. Colts need a run stopper up front. Price is a guy who can help improve this weakness.
32. New Orleans* (13-3) - Maurkice Pouncey C. It's good to be king. Saints draft the best center in the draft and call it a day.
