2010 NFL Draft Live Blog – Day 1

Ok after months of waiting, the 2010 NFL draft is finally here. At 7:30 ET Bryan’s Rams will be on the clock. At this point it seems that among the blog and mock draft world the Rams taking Sam Bradford is a pretty consensus opinion. They could still surprise people and take Ndamukong Suh or even trade out of the first pick, which there have been multiple rumors about. By 6ET I will be sitting here with my TV on ESPN and my Google Chrome window will have all sorts of tabs open, including the wish list I put together for my Colts.

To keep everyone occupied throughout the day until the draft actually starts, you can go check out the three mock drafts that I just put up:

One has Sam Bradford being picked first overall by the Rams.

One has Ndamukong Suh being picked first overall by the Rams.

And the last one has the Rams trading out of the first pick.

You can also check out the final results from the fan mock draft and my 20 previous mock drafts by following the appropriate one of these links: IIIIIIIVVVIVIIVIIIIXX,XIXIIXIIIXIVXVXVIXVIIXVIIIXIX, and XX. Continue reading

The glaring problem right now is that not a single team that lost is ahead of a single team that won. This clearly isn’t accurate but as the season progresses it will work itself out. At the very least you can look at the “Avg Rank” column to see the average ranking from a large number of reputable sources. Either way, here it is: Continue reading

Weller’s Picks for Day 1 of the NCAA Tournament

Just for kicks I’m tossing my opening day picks up here.

UPDATE: I’ve decided I’m going to update this letting you know if I got the game right or wrong. I’m also going to put an asterisk next to games where I picked the lower seed, which today only happens to be Western Kentucky over Illinois. There will be many more asterisks for my day 2 picks, maybe too many. Let me know what you think in a comment. Continue reading
