1 DET Smith, Jason LOT Baylor 6050 309 5.20
Rebuilding the Lions is a marathon, not a sprint. 2010 draft is loaded with accurate quarterbacks.
2 STL Monroe, Eugene LOT Virginia 6052 309 5.25
Age and time are catching up to the tackles. Curry is talked about, as is Crabtree.
3 KC Curry, Aaron OB Wake Forest 6016 254 4.56
Only if he plays ROLB in Chiefs’ new 3-4 scheme. Think Adalius Thomas, James Harrison, Shawn Merriman, etc.
4 SEA Sanchez, Mark QB Southern Cal 6021 227 4.90
No corner warrants this high. If Smith or Monroe fall, they land here. Hasselbeck’s back isn’t getting any better.
5 CLE Jenkins, Malcolm DC/FS Ohio State 6001 204 4.51
Brian Cushing a possibility. Wells a consideration.
6 CIN Crabtree, Michael WR Texas Tech 6013 215 4.55
With Houshmandzadeh gone and Chad Johnson a dilemma, Palmer needs a target. Andre Smith and Beanie Wells are talked about.
7 OAK Orakpo, Brian OB/PR Texas 6030 263 4.65
Burgess is 31 and coming off a triceps injury. Maclin is possible if Orakpo is too slow for Mr. Davis.
8 JAX Smith, Andre OT Alabama 6040 334 5.34
Smith and Monroe are gone. Andre Smith is the pick if red flags are erased. Raji is talked about. FS later in draft.
9 GB Raji, B.J. DT Boston College 6014 337 5.13
Boom or bust. Weight, maturity, 3-4 nose tackle has talent. Scary pick. Cushing a possibility.
10 SF Brown, Everette OB/PR Florida State 6014 256 4.75
Needs a pass rusher. (Where’s Lawson, the workout warrior?) ROT and FS a possibility and that is if you’re satisfied at QB. Florida State scheme has fooled many teams. Stafford talked about.
11 BUF Pettigrew, Brandon TE Oklahoma State 6053 265 4.82
Defensive end is a need, but potential ten-year TE helps run game and stabilizes position.
12 DEN Laurinaitis, James IB Ohio State 6017 244 4.80
Defensive needs are plenty. Maualuga a consideration. Dawkins’ signing shores up secondary.
13 WAS Maualuga, Rey IB Southern Cal 6016 249 4.85
Haynesworth fills DT spot. Offensive tackles are discussed.
14 NO Davis, Vonte DC Illinois 5111 203 4.42
Wanted Malcolm Jenkins FS/DC combination. Settled for best athlete.
15 HOU Moreno, Knowshon RB Georgia 5105 217 4.55
Slaton and Moreno give the Texans a 1-2 punch at RB. An OLB will be taken later.
16 SD Jackson, Tyson DE LSU 6041 296 4.95
Fills DE need. ROG, ROT, IB will be selected later in draft.
17 NYJ Stafford, Matt QB Georgia 6022 225 4.84
It could happen if Stafford slides past Detroit, Seattle, San Francisco, Buffalo. Who thinks he is a franchise QB? Maclin could also be the pick.
18 CHI Maclin, Jeremy WR Missouri 6001 198 4.45
Will get offensive lineman later. Steal at #18. Orton needs a playmaker. Offensive line needs will be filled in the next couple of rounds.
19 TB Jerry, Peria DT Mississippi 6016 299 4.95
Trade up for Stafford and Maclin fail. Fills a need with a great effort player.
20 DET Cushing, Brian OB Southern Cal 6027 243 4.65
Fills linebacker need. Clay Matthews, Marcus Freeman, and Clint Sintim also talked about.
21 PHI Wells, Chris RB Ohio State 6010 235 4.55
Big back with good hands, good fit. Will the Eagles trade down?
22 MIN Britton, Eben ROT Arizona 6060 309 5.15
Ryan Cook and Marcus Johnson can’t get the job done at right tackle.
23 NE Smith, Alphonso DC Wake Forest 5090 193 4.50
Size doesn’t matter to Belichick. He wants football players.
24 ATL Vaughn, Chip SS Wake Forest 6013 221 4.48
Athletic sure tackler with good football intelligence. Moves to head of the class. Other top defensive players on Falcon board discussed.
25 MIA Unger, Max OG Oregon 6045 309 5.30
Will start at OG but can play OC or tackle as needed. Helps plug any weak spots in offensive line.
26 BAL Barwin, Connor OB Cincinnati 6035 256 4.60
Bart Scott is gone. Corners and receivers talked about, as well as other versatile linebackers.
27 IND Nicks, Hakeem WR North Carolina 6006 212 4.50
Great hands fill loss of Harrison. Defensive tackles also discussed.
28 PHI Oher, Michael OT Mississippi 6044 309 5.35
Signed Stacy Andrews. Still need another future tackle.
29 NYG Robiskie, Brian WR Ohio State 6027 209 4.48
Outstanding hands, size, and route runner fills major void.
30 TEN Harvin, Percy WR Florida 5111 192 4.41
Explosive playmaker for Kerry Collins. Defensive tackles also talked about.
31 ARZ Brown, Donald RB Connecticut 5102 210 4.46
Outside linebackers are discussed. Fellow Huskie alum, corner Darius Butler, is also in the discussion. Eric Wood may be too high cut to be considered at center.
32 PIT Mack, Alex OC California 6037 311 5.10
Too tough, too smart, to pass. Offensive line needs overhaul.
