2010 NFL Draft Projections- Picks 1-15: October 27

I think it will depend on their combine on if they go in round 1 or 2.

I could see Hughes being the next Larry English with a team (such as us) reaching on him a bit early.

I see Graham as a first rounder and Hughes a second rounder.

My biggest concern with Hughes is he plays primarily on the left side of the line, so he's mostly matched up against the RT's of college football. Graham does the bulk of his work at the RDE position, so he's matched up against the LT's of the NCAA.

To be fair, I've seen Graham play almost equally as much at LDE -- Which is where he tends to dominate most frequently, of course.

Courtesy of the Great Blue North Draft, who gave the draft order, the Niners are currently on the clock for the 11th and 15th overall picks. The good news is that the Panthers have a murderers row of games coming up, which should push their selection back up the board. The bad news is that the worst six teams are so bad that they may never drift further up the board than number 7. We will see.

The numbers on the end is winning percentage of opponents. The lower the winning percentage, the higher the draft selection.

Here is the projection I see for the draft at this point.

1 St. Louis 0-7 .535
Jake Locker- I'll stick with the guy with the strongest arm and biggest upside to go first overall, to revamp this terrible offense.
2 Tampa Bay 0-7 .584
Ndamukong Suh- The Bucs have to rebuild, and Suh has been dominant this year. Could provide the best interior defender on the team since Warren Sapp.
3 Tennessee 0-6 .553
Sam Bradford- So many variables for Bradford. Will his surgery go well, and when will he return to throwing the ball. Will he be able to work out for scouts early enough before the draft for a proper evaluation.
4 Kansas City 1-6 .548
Eric Berry- The team has a billion needs, and Berry is simply too good to slide much further. A real difference maker from Day One, which they desperately need.
5 Cleveland 1-6 .558
Jimmy Clausen- Brady Quinn is going out the door, and Derek Anderson is currently ranked 35th in the NFL. Enter the newest kid from Notre Dame.
6 Detroit 1-5 .553
Gerald McCoy- The Lions need a stellar defender up the middle, and McCoy provides explosiveness.
7 Washington 2-5 .500
Russell Okung- The first OT off the board, and a good pick for a team that is going to probably lose Chris Samuels for good.
8 Oakland 2-5 .543
Taylor Mays- Al Davis loves speed, and guys who hit. Mays gives his team both, and in the end, his decision is the only one that matters.
9 Seattle 2-4 .446
Dez Bryant- The Seahawks do have other needs, but witness the Niners come to life with Crabtree. To match the Niners in this area, the team picks up this year's stud WR, in Bryant.
10 Miami 2-4 .543
Ricky Sapp- Just taking a hunch that Sapp runs a blazing forty time, looks ultra athletic, and the Dolphins look for a long-term replacement to the Porter-Taylor OLB combo.
11 San Francisco (from Carolina) 2-4 .567
Charles Brown- As predicted a few weeks ago, the USC LT is beginning to blaze up the board. Both writers for NFL Draft Scout now have him in the first round. He's just a super athletic kid, with lots of room to grow.
12 Buffalo 3-4 .471
Trent Williams- The Bills need help at OT, and Williams is a good prospect who can come in to keep Trent Edwards upright and alive.
13 Jacksonville 3-3 .433
Carlos Dunlap- Nobody knows what his position will be at the next level, but he can start from Day One as the LDE for the Jags, and move inside on passing downs.
14 San Diego 3-3 .467
Arthur Jones- The team needs to rebuild its DL, which is struggling against the run in 2009. Jones takes over at LDE.
15 San Francisco 3-3 .470
CJ Spiller- The Niners' second first rounder is a luxury pick, and this is quite a luxury. Spiller provides world class speed, a third down back, a punt and kickoff return specialist (which may be the team's biggest need going into 2010), and an explosive receiver in the flats. People scoffed when Chris Johnson was drafted out of East Carolina by the Titans. The same for Darren Sproles, Maurice Jones-Drew. Nobody laughs anymore. Speed kills. This team will be explosive with Crabtree, Spiller, Davis, Gore, Morgan.

no way we pass on Williams

The team will have to decide which route they want to take down the road, the more mobile and athletic Brown, or the bigger and more physical Williams.

I believe the Niners are seeing the potential of having a more wide-open offense, with the ability to get Crabtree and Davis the ball down the field with Smith at QB. So, the need for the better pass protecting RT will emerge, launching Brown over Williams.

I'm seeing about a 70-30 split this season, between the right and left DE sides.
This draft is going to be a very good & exciting one.
I'm the majority in that Bradford, given his injuries would be a stretch. Locker seems to have hit a bit of a wall in development too.

Even though Branch may get cut, they still have Housh, Burleson and Deon Butler. They really need to upgrade the OL and it's obvious Seneca Wallace is not the heir apparent to Hasselback.

I would hope that the Niners would add talent to the OL and LB in the first round. Mid first round for a third down back is a reach.

That makes sense. With the OT pick and Spiller picks done, where do you see the Niners going in round 2? What do you think happens in free agency?

The free agency predictions are hard because if the CBA doesn't signed most freeagents will be made of 6 year vets. If the CBA is signed then I could see us target Logan Mankins from NE. He would stabilize our line.

I see them going the best guard on the board, or the best SS. I think Lewis just might call it quits this offseason.

As for free agency, the team may look at a return specialist (which would probably alter the Spiller selection), and a mid-tier guard.

i like these picks too. if we get these two guys i would like to see them get an OLB or Safety in the 2nd round and i hope in addition to their 1st round Tackle they sign the best guard in FA. we have to fix the line asap to take advantage of the talent we have on offense.

I heard we wanted Mankins at the 33rd pick in the 2005 Draft, but the Patriots selected him one slot before us; we drafted Baas instead.

Courtesy of the Great Blue North Draft, who gave the draft order, the Niners are currently on the clock for the 11th and 15th overall picks. The good news is that the Panthers have a murderers row of games coming up, which should push their selection back up the board. The bad news is that the worst six teams are so bad that they may never drift further up the board than number 7. We will see.

The numbers on the end is winning percentage of opponents. The lower the winning percentage, the higher the draft selection.

Here is the projection I see for the draft at this point.

1 St. Louis 0-7 .535
Jake Locker- I'll stick with the guy with the strongest arm and biggest upside to go first overall, to revamp this terrible offense.
2 Tampa Bay 0-7 .584
Ndamukong Suh- The Bucs have to rebuild, and Suh has been dominant this year. Could provide the best interior defender on the team since Warren Sapp.
3 Tennessee 0-6 .553
Sam Bradford- So many variables for Bradford. Will his surgery go well, and when will he return to throwing the ball. Will he be able to work out for scouts early enough before the draft for a proper evaluation.
4 Kansas City 1-6 .548
Eric Berry- The team has a billion needs, and Berry is simply too good to slide much further. A real difference maker from Day One, which they desperately need.
5 Cleveland 1-6 .558
Jimmy Clausen- Brady Quinn is going out the door, and Derek Anderson is currently ranked 35th in the NFL. Enter the newest kid from Notre Dame.
6 Detroit 1-5 .553
Gerald McCoy- The Lions need a stellar defender up the middle, and McCoy provides explosiveness.
7 Washington 2-5 .500
Russell Okung- The first OT off the board, and a good pick for a team that is going to probably lose Chris Samuels for good.
8 Oakland 2-5 .543
Taylor Mays- Al Davis loves speed, and guys who hit. Mays gives his team both, and in the end, his decision is the only one that matters.
9 Seattle 2-4 .446
Dez Bryant- The Seahawks do have other needs, but witness the Niners come to life with Crabtree. To match the Niners in this area, the team picks up this year's stud WR, in Bryant.
10 Miami 2-4 .543
Ricky Sapp- Just taking a hunch that Sapp runs a blazing forty time, looks ultra athletic, and the Dolphins look for a long-term replacement to the Porter-Taylor OLB combo.
11 San Francisco (from Carolina) 2-4 .567
Charles Brown- As predicted a few weeks ago, the USC LT is beginning to blaze up the board. Both writers for NFL Draft Scout now have him in the first round. He's just a super athletic kid, with lots of room to grow.
12 Buffalo 3-4 .471
Trent Williams- The Bills need help at OT, and Williams is a good prospect who can come in to keep Trent Edwards upright and alive.
13 Jacksonville 3-3 .433
Carlos Dunlap- Nobody knows what his position will be at the next level, but he can start from Day One as the LDE for the Jags, and move inside on passing downs.
14 San Diego 3-3 .467
Arthur Jones- The team needs to rebuild its DL, which is struggling against the run in 2009. Jones takes over at LDE.
15 San Francisco 3-3 .470
CJ Spiller- The Niners' second first rounder is a luxury pick, and this is quite a luxury. Spiller provides world class speed, a third down back, a punt and kickoff return specialist (which may be the team's biggest need going into 2010), and an explosive receiver in the flats. People scoffed when Chris Johnson was drafted out of East Carolina by the Titans. The same for Darren Sproles, Maurice Jones-Drew. Nobody laughs anymore. Speed kills. This team will be explosive with Crabtree, Spiller, Davis, Gore, Morgan.

no way we pass on Williams

The team will have to decide which route they want to take down the road, the more mobile and athletic Brown, or the bigger and more physical Williams.

I believe the Niners are seeing the potential of having a more wide-open offense, with the ability to get Crabtree and Davis the ball down the field with Smith at QB. So, the need for the better pass protecting RT will emerge, launching Brown over Williams.

That makes sense. With the OT pick and Spiller picks done, where do you see the Niners going in round 2? What do you think happens in free agency?


The free agency predictions are hard because if the CBA doesn't signed most freeagents will be made of 6 year vets. If the CBA is signed then I could see us target Logan Mankins from NE. He would stabilize our line.

it has been documented that mankins would have been the niners pick in rd 2, 2005 draft, rather than david baas, had the pats not taken him just before niners picked

Thought about it a little more, and honestly don't really like Charles Brown for our team. Granted, we fail in all aspects of offense lately, but the one thing I find especially frustrating is our inability to convert on 3rd and short, because we don't have any dominant run-blocking linemen, the kind that can get the job done even when the other team knows that you are going to run behind him.

In short, I guess what I'm saying is Iupati ftw lol.

anthony davis from rutgers has about 40 lbs on brown and is said to pass block well enough for the left tackle position..might he be the guy for niners to take in round 1
