2010 NFL Mock Draft IV (08/19)

This is my fourth mock for the 2010 NFL Draft. I was doing them on the first day of each month, but this month I was on a vacation and have just now gotten around to putting up the one for August. I determined the draft order by using the results from the poll that I put up with my last mock draft. That took care of the first seven picks. After that I used the most recent Super Bowl XLIV odds to put the remaining 25 teams in order. I again have the Steelers repeating as Super Bowl champs. Let me know what you think about the draft in a comment.

  1. Great mock draft, the only thing i dont understand is why you have the seahawks taking Brandon Spikes. They already have a great inside linebacker. Im sure they have more needs than another linebacker. Thoughts?

  2. The Seahawks really probably need an offensive tackle or safety there, but with Berry and Mays already taken there wasn’t really any OT or safety left on the board worth taking that high… and Brandon Spikes was available… Tatupu, Curry and Spikes are all talented enough to play any of the linebacker positions, so at that point it would be up to the coaches to decide where the meshed best… so really I should have just listed Spikes as a “LB” rather than specifically as an “ILB” but it’s all good.

    • Well, i dont know if you know but you failed to metion LeRoy Hill. The seahawks just signed him to a 6 year 38 million dollar contract. The seahawks run a 4-3 and i dont think they need a linebacker at all. maybe carlos dunlap to pair up with gerald mccoy though.

    • Given that there are probably more DT’s of worth around of merit compared to last year Colt McCoy or a safety would have been a decent selection, depending on how crocked Matt H. is (or how good Mike Teel might be) with the Denver pick followed by Jonathan Dwyer with the second pick might not be a bad selection. Thereafter, it’s predominantly linemen all the way…

      And having just selected my 3 fantasy teams for the year, wouldn’t it be so much easier for the Rams and Denver if they could just select, say, USC D/ST,

  3. I don’t understand how the Rams don’t run away with this poll.
