Their combined 4 first round picks in the 2010 NFL draft have been traded to the Houston Texans. It is being reported through Jedi-like mind tricks employed by Super Mario, the Texans GM, the team will give up their two 6th rd picks to DEN and CIN, while trading their 5th and 7th to SF. Super Mario has already been nominated for GM of the Year and is on the fast track to win the Nobel Prize.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the Lions do in the 2010 Draft. I only wish they addressed their offensive line issues by taking Michael Oher instead of the tight end. Schwartz seems to be high on Jeff Backus and I wonder if their left guard is the real problem on their offensive line.

The Lions reluctantly come to the podium, being unable to find a willing trade partner for this pick.

First they looked at the BPA, Suh. However they have spent quite a bit of effort in trading for Corey Williams and pursuing free agent DTs meaning that this is not a glaring need on a pretty talentless team.

They then turned to Berry, the next BPA. However can you really justify drafting a S #2 overall? Considering they already have one good young safety in Louis Delmas, it might be better for them to try to add talent somewhere else.

That brings us to Okung, however Backus is well regarded by the staff and is probably the best lineman they have.

However, someone has to be picked, so the Lions suck it up and go with.....

Ndamokung Suh, DT, Nebraska.

http://rylanreed.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/ndomination-suh.jpg

He is simply the best prospect in this draft, Williams and Suh are a great tackle tandem and Schwartz likes him some defense.

I expect Pioli to be working the phones for a trade down. Their major needs are the middle of the defense and this to early for any of the other DTs, and as folks are talking that taking a Safety is too early at the 5th position it would stand to reason that an ILB would be early here as well. Clausen will no doubt be mentioned with Weis aboard, but that selection would ding Pioli's ego and put a lot of money at the QB position with the Cassel contract.

BPA at a need position suggests you take a consistent high impact player from HS to College, who could play multiple positions, Monte Kiffin tutored, comes with high integrity and is a pedigree player.

With the 5th selection the Chiefs take Eric Berry, S, Tennessee

With the 6th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Seahawks select...

Trent Williams, OT

http://i202.photobucket.com/albums/aa217/brucelee411/TrentWilliams.jpg


After Okung, Bryan Bulaga is the next highest rated offensive tackle but what seperates Trent Williams from everyone including Okung is his ability to use his hands and punch. Williams plays with a mean streak and will do an excellent job protecting Charlie Whitehurst or whoever is under center, not to mention he can play Guard and Center.

After seeing the top 3 OT prospects fly off the board ahead of them and being weary of the next 2 (Davis and Campbell) the Bills change tack and take a player to man the other side of the trenches.

Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee

With the Bills going to the 3-4, they take the piece in the middle to build around.

He is strong, demands double teams and controls the LOS.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_RVLfSMIB7K0/SylhMgawDDI/AAAAAAAAcks/byVn7KteKhE/s400/spiller.jpg

Spiller is just too much of a talent to pass up for this team and I was worried he wouldn't last until the 17th. Spiller and Gore will provide a great RB tandem with Coffee being our 3rd RB (now one of the best backfields in the league). He will be the much needed spark on offense and special teams. The running game will be key for finding success on offense.

And they paid Whitehurst Orlavsky money and gave up some draft picks for him. So, they want him at least as a primary backup.

It looks to me like they're setting up for taking a developmental QB. That doesn't necessarily mean here. They could draft a Clausen here or they could draft someone like Lefevre or Pike (or Colt or whomever). Then they could go into the season with Hasselbeck and Whitehurst with their new guy learning the ropes. Then next season, they ditch Hasselbeck and name the new guy as the starter and Whitehurst remains the backup.

UNLESS Whitehurst really surprises them and steps it up and wins the job this year and Hasselbeck becomes the backup.

The Seahawks have many needs, mostly on defense and with the top CB gone, Earl Thomas is the next best option. Thomas is the best safety available, fills a need for the Seahawks, and is a play maker Pete Carrol's defense is badly in need of.

On mocks like this, I try to balance both. Like it is becoming cliche to draft physical freaks for the Raiders. But I would not do it, and believe that Al Davis may not do it.

The Giants with their first round pick address their Offensive Line which lacks depth and is aging.

They believe that there is not good value at their other positions of need while their is a top rated OT still on the board. While there are some character concerns with this player, he is perhaps the most talented lineman in this years draft.

The Giants select Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers

I like Graham more than Griffin, but for the Tacks, Griffin actually sounds like a better pick.

Griffin is bigger and a bit faster which sounds like a Titan DE. Graham has a non-stop motor, but is a little smaller which I think makes him a little bit less desireable. But they are both first round picks in my eyes.

Also what is Derrick Morgan doing on the board still? I figured he would be a top 15 pick.

With the 20th overall selection in this years draft, the Houston Texans select:

Ryan Mathews
Running Back
Fresno State
5'11" / 218 lbs

The Texans were 30th in rushing last season, and one of those reasons was not having a legitimate running back. Steve Slaton being injured, partially caused massive turnovers and game changing results.

Mathews is a legit every-down back who can share carries with Slaton to give the Texans the 1-2 punch they have been desperately looking for since their inception as a franchise. Knows how to pass block, and can even get out in the flats and catch a pass. Will break tackles and get us the tough yards between the tackles that we so desperately need.

I also considered Kyle Wilson who was recently selected. Earl Thomas who has already been selected. Devin McCourty who is still on the board. Taylor Mays who is still on the board, but rates out as more of a SS. In the end I chose a player who would fill one of our biggest needs, and was the higher rated player on my board.

Never really considered Iupati in round 1 (even though he was just selected) since we signed Wade Smith, and have Mike Brisiel coming back. Possibly Chester Pitts as well.

Wow, where do I begin? TE is a need and that's the most popular pick for us but I just can't bring myself to pick any of these TE's at 21 overall. FS could use an upgrade but Thomas is gone, Nate Allen seems to be a reach. Taylor Mays is a popular name for this selection, but I can't spend the 21st overall pick on a guy I'm not convinced is going to be a significant upgrade over Chinedum Ndukwe or Roy Williams at SS. DT could use a guy but Price is starting to worry me here and Odrick seems a bit overrated here. I really wanted to take Dez Bryant but feel like I need to pass since I just spent some capital on Antonio Bryant to pair with Ochocinco. Wasn't too keen on any OG prospects right here so... I chose Kindle because he's every much the athlete and prospect of anyone on the board. He can rush the passer, chase the ball carrier, drop into coverage and cover those TE's.

As the Eagles GM, I'm starting my second mock draft haul by selecting the best OLB in the draft, Mr. Whitey Tighties.

Just to give yall a little insight on how I see it.

My choices were Mathews, Mays, Weatherspoon, Pouncey, Bryant, Price, Robinson, and McCourty.

Taylor Mays has questionable ball skills, which is what I want in a FS. With Pollard getting resigned for the SS position it doesnt make sense.

Sean Weatherspoon would be addition at an already stacked position in my eyes. Cushing, Ryans and Diles are a great group. Don't see the need to add another linebacker in round 1.

Maurkice Pouncey was interesting, but where am I going to put him? You know we don't plug rookie centers in the lineup. And we have enough guards with our FA signing of Wade Smith, and Mike Brisel coming back.

Dez Bryant was really low on my list of needs. Even though he was high on my big board. Firs off the dude is kinda slow and dim witted. Secondly I am a big fan of Kevin Walter who we signed to a multi-year deal, and also think Jacoby Jones is a star in the making. So scratch him off.

Devin McCourty/Patrick Robinson were interesting, but I feel that this being a deep draft at CB, we can get a player in a later round to compliment Quin and Reeves.
Brian Price shows flashes of being able to shoot the gaps, but from the video I saw he ends up on his knees too much. Plus I would probably hang myself with another DT selection in the first round.

So i decided to grab the running back and shore up the position. We desperately need a stud RB. There is no denying that. Mathews and Slaton should give us that RBBC so we can grind out games, and put some on ice on our way to the playoffs.

This is my thinking as well. As much as I'd rather spend our 1st on someone else and get Tate/Dwyer/Gerhart later... I really don't know what I would of done with this pick and most likely would have taken Mathews like you did. If Kubiak isn't 100% in love with Mathews though, I pray we could find a trade down partner. Maybe someone would like to snag Dez Bryant up b/c they know he's going to get taken soon, or Taylor Mays? or someone we're not even thinking about ala Joe Flacco.

Benn is the 3rd best receiver in this draft but the problem is, he's the second coming of Braylon Edwards. But he was the top of the board for me at this spot. So there you go.

I really wanted Tate or Odrick here. Terrence Cody was my 4th pick. And my fifth was Hughes.

The board just really didn't fall out well for the Jets this time around.

Yeah thats what I was thinking. When you sent that to me people started taking your players left and right.

Maurkice Pouncey was interesting, but where am I going to put him? You know we don't plug rookie centers in the lineup. And we have enough guards with our FA signing of Wade Smith, and Mike Brisel coming back.



I'd have chosen Pouncey and knowing Kubiak would never start a rookie at C I'd have played him at LG for a year beside Myers so that he can learn to read the defenses and make the blocking assignment calls. Pouncey would then make Myers a backup or expendable in the 2011 season. Pouncey will be a Pro Bowl C/OG for someone in the next couple years if he's not injured.

With the 32nd overall pick, the Saints select...

Brandon Graham, DE

http://assets.sbnation.com/imported_assets/18704/76940282.jpg


I didn't want to reach on positions of need so I went BPA and I'm not sure if Graham can fit the Saints style of defense but he has the work ethic and dedication needed to be successful and Sean Payton can turn him into a stud. With a non-stop motor, he can replace Charles Grant as a much more quicker and athletic DE.

Adding the top interior offensive lineman in the draft to develop chemistry with top overall pick & franchise QB Sam Bradford is not only bpa but unexpected break to get this caliber of Center with big game experience in shotgun/spread (Tebow) formations opening the box & creating better running lanes for Mr. Steven Jackson. Current center Jason Brown could move back to LG where he started in Baltimore before drafting Grubbs. Pouncey grades out on the Rams board as a mid 1st rd. selection so value is a plus & he meets Spagnuolo's four pillars strategy: Faith. Character. Core Values. Team First. The Rams already have their young tackles set with 08 2nd overall pick Jason Smith & another 1st rounder back in 05 Alex Barron, who along with guards Bell & Goldberg will help accelerate improved line play & giving Sam long term continuirty with which to grow. http://multimedia.foxsports.com/m/video/30081602/draft-preview-maurkice-pouncey.htm

This is a great spot for Pouncey. I think he is a slight reach in mid round 1. So the top of round 2 is good value for the position. Good Pick.

The Lions had the worst pass defense in the NFL last year, strange for a team who was behind a lot and should have been getting ground into the dirt by opposition running games.

Suh helped that with the first pick of the draft, the Lions continue to address that issue here in the second.

The Lions select Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama.

Suh helps the front end, Jackson helps the back end. The Lions traded for Houston but if getting Dunta is considered an upgrade over him he can't be good.

Alualu amazes me each time I watch him. As the Colts GM last mock, I selected him at the end of the 2nd rd at pick #63. Now as the Broncos GM, I'm taking him at #45. I think this guy just has it all and is the perfect fit for a 3-4 defense. His athleticism, instincts, work ethic and ability to beat the double teams will allow him to be an instant success along our DL at a NT and DE. His versatility will also allow him to stay on the field when we show 4-3 fronts as well. Denver's front 7 is being built with studly players.

Jerry's kind of up in the air but somewhere in the 2nd or early 3rd at the latest is my guess as to where will go. I selected him (could have been a little early) b/c I think Singletary is the perfect kind of coach for him. He's going to let John know exactly what it is that he needs to do. I like Jerry's size but he could stand to lose a few pounds... Our OL is in desperate need of a G and RT and had to try and solidify this spot to help David Ca...err whatever QB starts for us and to run block for Frank Gore and CJ SPiller!

Let the grumbles begin.

The Houston Texans Select:

Morgan Burnett
Free Safety
Georgia Tech
6'1" 209 lbs

http://blogs.ajc.com/georgia-tech-sports/files/2010/01/MorganBurnett.jpg

Super Productive Career. 235 Tackles, 13 PBU, 14 INT's.

Had big games against quality opponents.

Ball-Hawk safety with 14 carrer INT's.

Natural play maker with great size.

No character concerns. Just a solid all around football player.

Here is a good write-up on Burnett. LINK (http://www.giantsgab.com/2010/03/17/prospect-profiles-safety-morgan-burnett-ga-tech/)

Highlight Video. LINK (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQf7WNWk7aQ&feature=related)

This is a perfect situation for Burnett who can come in and compete with Eugene Wilson for the starting FS spot. The more I researched this guy, the more I fell in love with the idea of drafting him. He is a solid round 2 prospect who should not be available when we pick in the 3rd. I love the size of this kid. Big enough to play SS if we needed him to.

So lets hear it.

I was going to take Burnett for the Steelers. He's a great choice for the Texans.

I would've taken Asamoah.

With the 52nd pick in the NFL draft the Pittsburgh Steelers select Brandon Ghee CB Wake Forest

I had Ghee and Chris Cook rated the same. But with all of the Steelers problems with the law I decided that Ghee was the best choice for them.

Thats who I took for the Steelers in the 2nd of the last mock draft. Totally agree there.

Thanks. I saw Asamoah on the board, but was looking for some secondary help bad.

It comes down to who you think is the better player.

If you have Burnett and Asamoah rated =

Then you must have rated the need in the secodary greater than interior OL.

Cant really go wrong with either one.

I'm happy with Burnett.

As much as it is a good year for DTs, it is just me or is it a down year for MLB?

Those last two picks were the first picks of this draft that were a bit off my draft board.

(Pencils in mid 2nd as the point where value start to diverge amongst teams)

I had several other guys targetted here but they got took before I got up. But I have Bowman on my list right about this spot anyway. So he didn't seem like a huge reach to me.

I've got no problem with Burnett. I would have liked a CB. There are some good ones on the board right now.

My sentiments exactly. With RB in the 1st, Secondary was probably the way to go. I was leaning towards a CB but Burnett/Pollard safety combo looks good.

And it might be good to PM to 2 or 3 people just to make sure that you get them to someone who'll be around.

I could be on that list along with kiwi.

And the Green Bay packers select...

Hillsdale OT, Jared Veldheer

http://www.d2football.com/images/pro_hope/pro_action_veldheer.jpg

A little raw, but he wont be pressed into starting duty immediately. He is a very athletic player, one that could fit any scheme. I have OT rated pretty highly on the Packers needs, so this fit well.

Yeah, I had the Packers in the other mock and I had tackle and guard both rated pretty high. Tackle higher than guard.
