2010 NFL Mock Draft XIX (04/07)

I first want to recommend that everyone goes and checks out the fan mock draft where we are having each NFL team represented by a different person and seeing how the draft plays out.

The actual NFL draft is only about two-and-a-half weeks away and a huge trade went down yesterday that sent Donovan McNabb to the Redskins and this Skins second round pick for this year back to the Eagles. All this made me think it was a good time for me to go ahead and do my first full, seven-round mock draft for 2010. I also don’t have class today so it provides for the perfect opportunity to sit down and really think through all seven rounds. I’m taking into account the comments from the mock draft I put up about a week ago and will do the same thing again next week, taking into account the comments on this mock draft. Be sure to check out my thoughts and comments on some of the picks below the mock draft it self.

To see how things have progressed with my 2010 mock drafts take a look back at IIIIIIIVVVIVIIVIIIIXX,XIXIIXIIIXIVXVXVIXVII, and XVIII. Here is the nineteenth:

Now for my thoughts and reasoning on some of the picks:

  • It’s very clear now that unless some other team (most likely the Bucs) is desperate to trade up for the top spot and offers a good deal, then the Rams will be picking Sam Bradford.
  • There seem to be a lot of people recently that have the Lions taking Okung instead of Suh. I think that’s just crazy, and doubt it will happen, so Suh is solid at #2.
  • After that the top five seem to be pretty consensus, though there are rumors that the Chiefs want to grab Dan Williams. I would think that if that is indeed their plan then they will trade down to do it. I think the Bucs are crazy for not wanting Eric Berry more than they do, but it appears DT is definitely the way they’re going to pick.
  • Two draft ago I had people commenting say there was no way Seattle would take Morgan with sixth pick and Clausen with the 14th, but I just can’t get away from that. Morgan is by far the best DE in the draft and I don’t think they can pass on him there. And they need a quarterback for the future, which would be why they take Clausen at 14.
  • Joe Haden to Jacksonville makes sense. The majority of the Jags fans are also gator fans. He’s a position of need and it makes the fans happy.
  • Similarly, Taylor Mays gets to stay relatively close to where he played his college ball, going to the 49ers. He’ll also be going up against his college coach twice each year.
  • On the last draft we had a commenter, who seemed to be a Steelers fan and he didn’t like who I had Pittsburgh drafting at all. So this time around I switched it up completely. He said he wanted Iupati in the first, so that’s who they got.
  • The Texans grab a corner in the first round which is a wise move as they will need to add more talent and depth at that position to stop the Colts firepower.
  • The Bengals are said not to be happy with their tight end situation despite drafting Chase Coffman last year, so this year they grab another Big 12 tight end, Jermaine Gresham, in the first round.
  • The Packers get lucky by having CJ Spiller slip down to them at 23. Spiller is a great player but he’s really only a change of pace back and I don’t think any of the teams dropping earlier on in the first can afford to use a first rounder on that type of player.
  • Philly looks to replace Brian Dawkins, who the parted ways with a year ago, by grabbing Earl Thomas in the first round. When all is said and done, with Eric Berry, Taylor Mays and Earl Thomas this might end up being known as the best safety draft ever.
  • The Cardinals biggest need on either side of the ball is at linebacker, both inside and outside linebacker, so they take Sergio Kindle with the 26th pick. I believe he has the capability to step in and play immediately.
  • The Cowboys recently released left tackle, Adams, recently and need to replace him, so they snag Anthony Davis with their first round pick.
  • The Jets add to what could end up being the best defense in football by taking Jerry Hughes, a stud linebacker out of TCU.
  • This would be a tough decision for the Colts at 31. With Sean Weatherspoon, Jared Odrick and Charles Brown all still on the board. All three players are at positions of need and all three could likely step in and contribute on day 1. I think however, that Weatherspoon is the best player of the three and it’s the position that would most likely to have a rookie come in and start at. I would be happy with any of the three of them here but if Weatherspoon fell to us it would be hard to understand passing on him. Brown would be a little bit of a reach, Odrick would be right at where he’s listed on most big boards and Weatherspoon would be a steal. So Weatherspoon it is.
  • This is the first time in a while that I’ve had the Rams take a player other than a defensive end in the second round. I think if Tate is there then that’s who it’ll be. He will be a nice compliment to Donnie Avery and both are young receivers that will have time to grow with Sam Bradford.
  • The Browns snag Colt McCoy which I think could end up being the best pick of the draft. I’m not sold on any of the quarterbacks in this year’s draft but for the record, I think McCoy is the one who will end up being the best pro quarterback. I’m sure there must be a reason that nobody else (other than Tony Dungy) agrees with me, but I think he’ll step in and steal the starting spot away from Brady Quinn, who will continue to make his living doing EAS Myoplex commercials.
  • There are a lot of guards taken in the second round: Saffold to Denver, Ducasse to Kansas City, Jerry to Houston, and Asamoah to the Jets. And the Vikings grabbed Pouncey as a guard at the end of the first. I think there is a good chance at this actually playing out similarly to this. There are a lot of good guards in this draft but I don’t see many of the teams seeing it worth it to take on in the first round.
  • The Steelers take Chris Cook. This isn’t who the previously mentioned Pittsburgh fan specifically said who he wanted here, but he did mention a corner among the names he wanted in the first round, so hopefully his likes this pick.
  • The Chargers take Mt. Cody to challenge Ian Scott for the starting spot at nose tackle. Similar to offensive guard, this is an extremely deep draft at defensive tackle. There are ten DTs that I could see pushing for a starting spot next year.
  • Speaking of DTs pushing for a starting spot, the Colts take Tyson Alualu out of California at about the same spot that they took Fili Moala at last year. Those two along with Daniel Muir and Antonio Johnson will all be competing throughout the off season and preseason for the two starting DT spots.
  • The Vikings take Tim “New-Throwing-Motion” Tebow with their second round pick. If Favre returns he’ll be able to show Timmy a thing or two. If he doesn’t then Teblow will likely start on day 1… Better hope Favre returns.
  • I mentioned that I didn’t have the Rams taking a DE in the second round, but I still think they need one to replace Leonard Little, so they pick up Jason Worilds out of Virginia Tech in the third round.
  • If Brandon Spikes and Navorro Bowman do end up getting pick back-to-back like this then I could see them being compared for years down the line. Both played at big name universities and both have the potential to be third round gems, and both are going to teams that are on the rise and have high expectations for next year.
  • We had a Houston commenter who said he couldn’t see how they would take a tight end before a running back. Well this time around they don’t. Monatrio Hardesty would be a great fit in Houston, teaming up with Steve Slaton.
  • The same Steerlers commenter mentioned wanting Stuckey in the third round, so that’s who he got. I think this is a slight reach, but it makes sense.
  • Cincinnati pick Greg Hardy in the third, another player that I could see ending up as a third rounder who goes on to have a great NFL career.
  • The Colts snag T.J. Ward here. This might be unnecessary With Bob Sanders, Antoine Bethea and Melvin Bullitt already on the roster but the Colts have had serious injury problems in the secondary over the past few years (and no, I’m not just talking about Bob Sanders) and Ward could provide some great depth.
  • The Bengals take Geno Atkins at the end of the third, taking the final DT of the ten I mentioned before. If things go ideally then they would have Atkins and Hardy as a great defensive line duo for a ways into the future.
  • The Redskins snag Ben Tate in the fourth round, who would help take a lot of the pressure off of Clinton Portis. I heard some talk recently of the Colts possibly taking Tate. That would be weird to me, but I could also be convinced that it’s the right pick, but I wouldn’t want him any earlier than the third round.
  • Again, the Jets add to their already studly-lookin defense by grabbing Kam Chancellor in the fourth round. He could potentially surprise some people and step in to start almost immediately. Safety is one of the few weaknesses the Jets will have next year if the don’t address it in the draft.
  • The Colts add some depth to the DE spot with Lindsey Witten here. He could step in and learn from Freeney and Mathis and he also has the frame (6’4″) to bulk up some more to become a great defensive end for running situations.
  • The Jaguars jump on Jevan Snead in the fifth round. If Snead can find some of that potential that everyone seemed to think he had a year ago, then this could be an absolute steal of a pick. He could come in and compete immediately with Garrard for the starting job.
  • The 49ers get Mardy Gilyard, which is just a phenomenal pick at this point. He could be a great duo with Crabtree for years and plus he can come in right now and be who they were hoping Isaac Bruce would be last year. Gilyard is almost the exact same build and type of player that Bruce was.
  • Remember when Trevard Lindley was supposed to be the best defensive back in the draft? What happened to that? Now he’s being drafted in the fifth round by the Giants. If he finds that first round potential again then the Giants just grabbed a great corner.
  • Dezmon Briscoe goes to the Titans in round five. I don’t see him being the boost to the receiving corps that they might hope, but it’s only a fifth round pick. It’s worth the gamble.
  • The Colts take Walter Thurmond, a cornerback out of Oregon, in the fifth round. Yes, I realize I had the Colts take five defensive players with their first five picks. Do I really see that happening? No, not really… but I do if this is actually how the draft plays out. The only offensive position that needs to be addressed is the offensive line, and the way things have played out in this mock it just hasn’t been worth reaching for an offensive linemen when there was a defensive player at a position you also need to address that is also good value, not a reach. The only spot that I thought it might be kind of worth it (other than Charles Brown in the first) was in the fourth round, when taking Ciron Black would have also made sense, but the Colts also like the best-player-available mindset so I feel like these first five picks all being on defense really does make sense.
  • The Falcons select Jonathan Crompton with their fifth round compensatory pick. At this point in the draft they’d addressed all of their biggest needs (DE, OLB, WR, TE, DT) except for o-line, and with no o-linemen being available at this point that wouldn’t be a huge reach, they go for Crompton. He’s a great practice quarterback and could serve as a decent third-string our scout team quarterback.
  • Danario Alexander gets drafted by the Eagles in the sixth round, where he would rejoin his college teammate at Mizzou, Jeremy Maclin. He wouldn’t play very often but I do see it as being a good fit for both him and the Eagles.
  • In the seventh round the Bills grab Chris Scott, the offensive tackle from Tennessee. I have a good friend who is a Bills fan and a Vols fan, so I’m sure he’d be really happy about this pick.
  • The Bengals take the only kicker of the draft, selecting Leigh Tiffin, who I believe is Alabama’s all-time leading scorer.
  • The Colts take two offensive linemen in the seventh round, both solid, smart players that would be able to learn the Colts offense after sitting as backups for a couple years. We also grabbed David Reed, wide receiver out of Utah. He can return some kicks and is the prototypical size for a receiver in the Colts offense. He’s 6’0″ and 192 lbs. Reggie Wayne, Austin Collie, Pierre Garcon, and Anthony Gonzalez are all six feet tall and range from 190 to 210 lbs. Even Marvin Harrison was 6-foot and about 190.

  1. Hey nice mock. I’m an Eagles fan and I have a few observations. I expect the Eagles to draft a guard or center, and a developmental QB somewhere. Also likely a rb in mid-late rounds. I don’t think they’ll pick 3 DE’s, especially since they traded for Tapp.

    • Graham, thanks for the nice comment. I would first and foremost like to apologize to you and any other Eagles fan who sees this. I have no idea how I managed to give you guys three DEs. I think I meant to only give you two and then forgotten I had already done so when I gave you the third one. That was a huge oversight on my part and next week I’ll be sure not to have that happen. Thanks again for the comment.

  2. how did you get through a 7 round draft and all those explainations… And not mention the Baltimore Ravens?? Who aren’t gonna draft an alcoholic like Dunlap.. No…He’d be in DC… ALL THE TIME.. partying it up… But anyway…Ozzie is way too unpredictable… I’d like to think we’d come out of the 1st round with a defensive starter and CB is the free spot since we signed Corey Redding… But they stay tru to their board… I see them trading down…to recoup some picks really….

    • Haha, thanks for the comment, Guru. I’m honestly quite surprised that I didn’t mention the Ravens at all. I promise it’s nothing personal. And I’ll be sure to have you guys bypass Dunlap next time around.

  3. You have Miami drafting 2 safeties and a CB (they drafted 2 CB’s and 1 safety last year) before they address NT, which is a HUGE need and critical to their 3-4. Jason Ferguson is 36 AND serving an 8-game suspension…that’s HALF the season. No way Miami waits until Round 6. Miami will either take Dan Williams in Round 1 or Cody or Thomas in Round 2. They HAVE to get a playmaker at NT in the first 2 rounds. This is not a deep NT class.

    • Hey thanks for the comment. I agree that Miami needs an NT, but needs that are just as important for them are OLB, S, and WR. Those three were addressed in the first three rounds and then NT had to wait because at that point there weren’t and NTs worth taking without them being a HUGE reach. I do see what you’re saying though. I just think that those four positions are all equally as big of needs for the Dolphins.

  4. As your Steelers fan i would be very happy with this draft is this was indeed the outcome. The only other thing i would like for the Steelers todo (if the opportunity arrises) would be to find a trade partner and move back no more than 4-5 picks in the first round and pick up Iupati there (i know the Cowboys could be a threat to jump up and take him if they do make the trade but if that happens then trade back a few more spots and take Pouncey). Making a package of some of these picks i would then like to see the Steelers move up in the second round and pick up Robinson or Jackson (cornerbacks) as i feel that either of these 2 are better situated to come in and make a bigger impact than Cook would (just my opinion). I like Stuckey in the third round to give us some additional depth in our secondary. In the fourth round taking a RB would be a good strategy i dont really know a lot about Dixon but with Parker signing on with the Redskins we could use more depth in our backfield.

    Just a quick question for you. Assume Big Ben is found guilty (i hope he isnt) and gets suspended for the entire year, how do you think this would affect their draft status?

    • Derek, great comment. Thanks for coming back despite being less than thrilled with how I had the Steelers picking last time. It’s truly appreciated.

      As for if I think it would impact your draft if Ben was found guilty, I would think it would have to at least a little bit. You guys might be okay trying to give Dennis Dixon or Charlie Batch a shot to start for the year, with the mindset that if it goes well then great and if it doesn’t you’ll just have to wait a year for Ben to return. But I still think it would be necessary to pick up a third quarterback whether it be in free agency or in the draft.

  5. Dude:

    No way the Falcons spend a pick on Crompton-they like JPW as the 3rd stringer, and would still at this point REALLY need OL help.

    • I agree that o-line is a big need for Atlanta but it’s not anywhere near as big of a need as DE and OLB, and you guys don’t have a second round pick and by the end of the third round you’re going to be making HUGE reaches for offensive linemen so why not go after a tight end and wide receiver, both of which are also positions of need.

  6. As a Tampa fan, I like everything but Curran. OLB is just not a need.There are 8 or 10 players they’d take instead, as posited.

    • Mike, thanks for the comment. Who else would you expect to see the Bucs take at that spot instead?

  7. I think Washington picks up a OG in the 4th round instead of a RB. We still have needs up and down the OL even after hopefully drafting Okung. The RB department is currently held down by the trio of old men. Portis Parker and Johnson.

    • True. When I heard about you guys signing Parker and Johnson my first thought was “wow that RB trio would be great… five years ago” haha

  8. I see you put a lot of effort here, but NO WAY on Graham to the Browns. True,we could use an OLB,but Graham is a hybrid 4-3 DE. Can’t afford a boom or bust project at #7. We already tried that with Wimbley. We’re going with a sure thing – Berry,E.Thomas or McClain. I honestly believe that Berry will still be there because of his lower positional value as a Safety and the teams ahead of us all needing LT.

  9. [...] it’s once again another full seven-rounder. I’m again taking into account the comments from the mock draft I put up about a week ago but this is the last mock that I will be doing so with. Next week I will put up one last mock draft [...]
