Texan4Ever's 2010 NFL Mock Draft
This is a work in progress but here is the first ten picks for my mock draft, feel free to comment and enjoy!
Texan4Ever’s 2010 NFL Mock Draft
1.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Ndamukong Suh, DT
Taking a DT in the first round is a BIG risk but Suh is a completely different player than the DTs that have come before him. He is a big guy who can still bulk up some more and become a dominate force in the interior. This should definitely help the Buccaneers revamp their defense which is in desperate need for a makeover.
2.) St. Louis Rams – Sam Bradford, QB
Marc Bulger is finished IMO so its time to get a franchise signal caller to lead the Rams. Suh would’ve been a nice addition to the Rams defense which is atrocious at best but with him off the board its time to think offense. Bradford is coming off a serious injury but I feel that he has accomplished a lot in college and is the best QB available in the draft.
3.) Cleveland Browns – Eric Berry, S
The Browns need help on both sides of the ball, however, their offense needs to figure out who there QB for the future will be and to me it seems like they should keep Brady Quinn since they’ve invested so much in him. There defense has the potential to play better and become a force so it would make sense for them to add a defensive playmaker like Eric Berry who could be the next Ed Reed.
4.) Detroit Lions – Russell Okung, OT
The Lions need help on defense the most, especially there defensive line and secondary and with a defensive minded coach, I think they would go defense here. That being said, the Lions chose Matthew Stafford as there QB of the future and it’s critical that they protect there investment. Jeff Backus has not done his job as there starting left tackle so its time to bring in someone who can. Russell Okung is a big OT who can take on the role of left tackle and protect Stafford for years to come and become a future Pro Bowl player.
5.) Kansas City Chiefs – Trent Williams, OT
The Chiefs need playmakers on defense now that they are running a 3-4 set but they could also use help on offense. After selecting Branden Albert in the first round last year to play OT, the Chiefs could use another OT and slide Albert back to his college position at offensive guard and place Williams at OT. Imagine Williams, Waters and Albert on an offensive line protecting Matt Cassel. Now, if they could only get another WR and RB they would be set.
6.) Washington Redskins – Jimmy Clausen, QB
With Jason Campbell set to become a FA, I don’t believe the Redskins will resign him so they draft Clausen to lead the Skins’. I’ll admit I’m not a big fan of Clausen but he is a good leader and has a strong arm and is a smart QB.
7.) Oakland Raiders – Taylor Mays, S
It’s always fun to predict who the Raiders will take and with Al Davis’s infatuation with physical freaks, Mays makes perfect sense…or at least of Al Davis. Standing at 6’3” 230-lbs, Mays is built like a weak side LB but has the speed of a DB and can really lay the wood on opposing WRs.
8.) Buffalo Bills – Dez Bryant, WR
The Bills need an OT and they need help on defense but with two of the top OTs gone Dez Bryant makes all the sense in the world. He has accomplished a lot in his college career and would be a good addition to the Bills who are in desperate need of a receiver who can perform well day in and day out unlike T.O.
9.) Seattle Seahawks – Corey Wootton, DE
The Seahawks need an OT to replace aging Walter Jones and they need a replacement QB for the future, but these positions can be addressed later on in the draft. The Seahawks could also use another pass rushing DE and Corey Wootton gets the nod over Greg Hardy. Standing at 6’7” 280-lbs, Wootton has had a productive career at Northwestern and is ready for the next level.
10.) Denver Broncos – Rolando McLain, OLB
Thanks to Da Bears, the Broncos get a top ten pick in 2010 and with a switch to a 3-4 defensive set, the Broncos could use an OLB to add to there defense. McLain is built like Cardinals LB Karlos Dansby and posses’ good speed for a LB his size. He has played well for the Tides and should be a dominate force in the NFL.
