2010 Fan Mock Draft – Round 1

This is the first round of our interactive, fan mock draft where the readers make the picks. We have each team being represented by a different person and they make the picks that they think are best for their team. Each person has six hours to make their pick and then the next person is on he clock. To see the easier to read, spreadsheet version of the draft click here. To see the picks and reasoning for round two click here.

Here’s how the first round has played out:

1. St. Louis Rams – Ndamukong Suh – DT – Nebraska

Trying to Stay True to the Rules of Being a Fan

One of the many unwritten laws of being a sports fan is that when your team wins a championship you aren’t allowed to complain about the given teams success (or lack of) for the next five years. Well this rule -like many of the other- is hard to follow, and is often broken. Some people even go as far to say that it’s ten years, but that just seems flat out impossible to me. Bryan as a Rams fan being a prime example. What shouldn’t be as hard to do is not complain about your teams lack of success, when by “lack of success” you mean not winning another championship. Unfortunately for me, that’s exactly what I’m struggling with. My team (the Colts) didn’t fall off like the Bucs, who won the Super Bowl after the 2002 season and hasn’t won a playoff game since; we didn’t slowly crumble into oblivion like the Rams (sorry, Bryan) who won the Super Bowl after the 1999 season and then three years later had a sub-.500 season and has failed to rebound; heck we didn’t even do what the Steelers did last year, failing to make the playoffs the year after winning the Super Bowl.
