2010 NFL Draft Projections- Picks 1-13: Veteran's day Edition

The tailspin of the Niners the past three weeks has put the team in a terrible and yet wonderful position, with two picks in the top thirteen overall. I do see that changing soon, with the Niners eventually playing better and dropping down in the first round.

Courtesy of the Great Blue North Draft, who gave the draft order, the Niners are currently on the clock for the 10th and 13th overall picks. The good news is that the Panthers are in a murderers row of games, 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.

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

1. Rams- Jimmy Clausen, QB- The Rams desperately need a new start, and a guy who can step in quickly to play. Clausen may be the most NFL-ready of the big guns.
2. Chiefs- Eric Berry, S- This pick could go a million directions. I'll go with the biggest impact defender in the draft. The Chiefs back end stinks.
3. Browns- Jake Locker, QB- The speculation here in Ohio is that both Quinn and Anderson will be gone at the end of the season. Why not take the player with the biggest arm and physical talent?
4. Detroit- Russell Okung, OT- The Lions need an anchor left tackle to protect Stafford (by the way, what the bleep were the Lions thinking on draft day when they selected Brandon Pettigrew over Michael Oher...just dumb), and Okung is probably the best guy on the board to fill this need.
5. Bucs- Ndamukong Suh, DT- Someone needs to shut down the opposition in TB, and Suh has been the most dominant defender in the NCAA this year.
6. Washington- Anthony Davis, OT- The Redskins need to find the replacement for Chris Samuels, who is pretty much done. Davis has looked strong the past month, and could leapfrog some of the bigger named guys above him.
7. Raiders- Taylor Mays, S- As long as Al Davis runs the Raiders' draft, they will continue to draft athletes over football players. Mays runs like the wind and hits like a truck. However, those instincts are questionable.
8. Titans- Gerald McCoy, DT- McCoy is a flat-out stud. You can line him up all over the DL, but he'd be best suited to be a disruptive undertackle. Very good player.
9. Seahawks- Bryan Bulaga, OT- Just like the Skins', the Hawks' need a future franchise LT, and Bulaga is a favorite for many around the country. He's a technically sound player, who has superb feet.
10. Niners- Trent Williams, OT- The need is RT, and there is no better big RT in this draft than Williams. Just a big, big man, who can run block better than anyone else. Not as versatile as the higher graded lineman who get draft first, but should be able to be a stud RT for a long time.
11. Bills- Dez Bryant, WR- To me, the Niners will make a tactical error in drafting a RT before the top WR in this draft, but the Bills won't. Bryant easily replaces the loss of T.O., and the games will begin.
12. Dolphins- Greg Hardy, OLB- Hardy is certainly not my favorite guy in the draft, but there is no denying the skill level. Bill and Co. have shown a willingness to pick players who are a bit rough around the edges, and while the Dolphins have two great OLB's currently on the roster, the days of Porter and Taylor on the same team are probably in the final eight weeks.
13. Niners- Derrick Morgan- OLB- The Niners address their greatest weakness with their first overall pick, then head to the second. The Haralson/Lawson combo simply does not put pressure on the QB, and we are beginning to see the secondary falter the past few weeks. Morgan is a big guy, at 6'4", 265 pounds, but the guy can seriously rush the passer.

Cheers to all.

I could see them going after Morgan even if he's in the 270 range. But if he comes in up to 275, will they draft him still and ask him to lose weight, or pass on him altogether? Who knows.

As for Anthony Davis. I just don't see it. My first impression was that he looked terrible in space when I saw him (a vision of him flopping on the ground trying to make a block on a screen pass was painful), and wasn't someone who would fare well against speed rushers.

If he can change my mind tomorrow (granted I'll be attempting to flip back and forth) going up against Pierre-Paul, I'll give him some credit.

Maddog,

Do you think Dunlap can play in the 3-4? Do you think he will fall outside of the top 15?
I wouldnt draft Bryant if I was the making the call. That is not to say he will not be great in the NFL. I just do not think the Niners have the luxury at this point to select another WR at the top of round 1 and pass on another OT. Also, I dont think that Bryant is the speed WR that compliments Crabtree but is very similar to him.

OT OG OLB DB

That is absolutely what we need in the first 3 rounds. I would be fine with your first 2 picks.

We all know you are a crazy lunatic.
I like it. Two biggest needs filled with two great prospects.

MD or OTC or someone else who follows the draft closely and actually evaluates the prospects, can you break down Morgan? He's the player most of us have been trying to eye ever since his great start to the season, but still hear very little about him. He's the only one that I believe can be a Merriman type pass rusher at the next level. Will a guy like Grahm ever be a dominant pass rusher who can beat OTs one on one without a threat on the other side? or is he more of the #2 who will compliment a guy like Jared Allen and only put up 10+ sacks opposite of him? Morgan on the other hand, given his size and production this year might be the #1 guy in my mind, based on my limited knowledge. But is he just a 1 year wonder like Jamal Anderson?
Trent Williams run blocking is overrated. Oklahoma is not a good rushing team. They ranked 69h and against good teams they average less than 3 yards per carry.

Yes, yes, yes. A million times yes. The kid is a serious baller, and the best WR prospect in the draft since Calvin Johnson.

The Niners can use that second first rounder on a RT.

Maddog,

Do you think Dunlap can play in the 3-4? Do you think he will fall outside of the top 15?

Dunlap is going to end up a LDE in a 4-3 set, or a 3-4 DE.

He's out of place on the left side. However, on the right side, the kid is a stud.

I guarantee you that if Bradford was playing, their running would be a lot better. They simply cannot throw the ball well without him, and teams are stacking the box.

I would cream my pants if we had Bryant and Crabtree as our #1 and #2.

Your not alone on this one! We can have our own future dynamic duo in the receiver position with Davis it might be a TRIO! and plus Byant is apretty good returner, I know we don't want to over use him in that way, but he can solve the problem until we get a true returner.
