After Week 5 of the NFL season, we are now 1/3 of the way through the season, and worth a preliminary peak at what might happen on draft day. I have projected the top 10 picks (with the four winless teams in the correct draft order). I'm not sure on the correct order of the one win teams, but at this point, I'll simply project how I think they will fall.
Just to note: The draft typically will have at least one LT drafted in the first handful of picks, and the same goes for the QB position. This year may drift from this trend, but I'll project some guys at these positions.
1. Tennessee- Jake Locker
2. St. Louis- Sam Bradford
3. Tampa Bay- Ndamukong Suh
4. Kansas City- Eric Berry
5. Oakland- Russell Okung
6. Detroit- Gerald McCoy
7. Cleveland- Carlos Dunlap
8. Buffalo- Dez Bryant
9. Niners (through Carolina)- Taylor Mays
10. Washington- Charles Brown
This is an early projection with the majority of selections eligible juniors who may or may not come out.
P.S. This is a big week for the NFC South Division, as the winless Bucs play at home against the one-win Panthers. Niners' fans should be plugged into that game to see if the Bucs can help the Niners' on the road to a higher draft choice. Of course, the Bucs are in full rebuild mold, especially after trading Gaines Adams to the Bears for a second rounder today, so I wouldn't expect a terrific performance.
