Here we go again. It's the end of january, so here is my first mock draft of 2010.
Comments are very welcome.
I had a big mistake in my 1st try, so here is version 1.1 . I picked till the niners second round pick and integrated a denver pick change because i did not know about the 2 safeties picked by them last year.
So here it is :
1. Rams Ndamukong Suh, DT
It is Suh or a QB here. But having Spags and his history with the giants dline and staying with Bulger for one more year make the best player in the draft the #1 pick
2. Lions Gerald McCoy, DT
Oline or dline ? The lions have ignored the oline in the last few drafts, why should this change ? (Btw, McCoy is a really good player)
3. Buccaneers Russell Okung, OT
Protection is the first way to make Freeman throw less picks.
4. Redskins Jimmy Clausen, QB
It looks like the skins will keep Campbell, but if Clausen is still there at #4, they must take him
5. Chiefs Eric Berry, S
Haley comes from the patriots and the patriots built on their defense. Eric Berry is special and make the defense better instantly
6. Seahawks Anthony Davis, OT
Keeping Hasselbeck alive is the only way to success for the seahawks.
7. Browns Sam Bradford, QB
They have Derek Andersen and Brady Quinn. Any more questions ?
8. Raiders Bruce Campbell, OT
No real qb option here. They take the fastest player from the combine or they will find out, that an oline is needed to be successfull
9. Bills Rolando McClain, MLB
Great value on a need position for the bills. McClain will be a force
10. Jaguars Joe Haden, CB
A shutdown corner from florida. Sounds like a match here
11. Broncos Dan Williams, NT
A force in the middle. A real NT for the broncos. There is no real nt in place right now
12. Dolphins Dez Bryant, WR
Give Chad Henne some weapons.
13. 49ers CJ Spiller, RB/KR
RB is not a real need position, but returner is. The niners need speed desperatly, the need a change of pace back and a returner. Here he is
14. Seahawks Aurelius Benn, WR
Housh didn't have the impact, he though he had and the other WRs were very quiet. So here comes a gamechanger
15. Giants Brian Price, DT
The giants won the superbowl with a great dline. They try to get back there
16. Titans Derrick Morgen, DE
The titans really need pass rushers. They are stout against the run but have problems coming to the qb
17. 49ers Brian Bulaga, OT
Here is the obvious OT we need
18. Steelers Taylor Mays, S
Mays fits the steelers style of aggressive play. He and Polamalu will be a safety combo that will create fear among the receivers in the AFC
19. Falcons Trent Williams, OT
The falcons need an upgrade over T.Clabo on the right side opposite to Sam Baker.
20. Texans Mike Iupati, OG
The interior line needs an upgrade and Iupati is a special talent. Raw power
21. Bengals Earl Thomas, S
The strong Cincinatti secondary needs a safety to be complete. Earl Thomas will make them even better
22. Patriots Jerry Hughes, OLB
The linebackers were the strength of the patriots, but now only Mayo is really good and he plays in the middle.Hughes looks like the best rush backer in the draft.
23. Packers Jean-Pierre Paul, DE
The pack got toasted in the playoffs because Warner had all day to pick them apart
24. Eagles Carlos Dunlap, DE
Another part to a dominant, aggressive defence : A pass rushing terror
25. Ravens Jermaine Gresham, TE
Finally a real safety valve for Flacco.
26. Cardinals Everson Griffin, OLB
The playoffs showed, what the cards need - passrush. Here comes a real passrusher.
27. Cowboys Brandon Spikes, MLB
The linebackers are getting older in Dallas. Spikes can be an instante upgrade
28. Chargers Terrence Cody, NT
Every 3-4 defense needs a monster in the middle. The chargers get their monster here
29. Jets Jared Odrick, DE
The jets use this pick to make their defense even better with an upgrade at the dline. Odrick can play de and dt on passing downs
30. Vikings Tim Tebow, QB
Maybe Favre will play another year, maybe not. Rosenfels can play for a year to groom his successor.
31. Saints Sean Weatherspoon , OLB
The saints are almost perfect on offense, so improve their defense. Fujita and Shanle are ok at OLB, but nothing special. Weatherspoon has tons of potential and should be an immediate upgrade
32. Colts Charles Brown, OT
In all the years, the colts picked somebody to make Payton happy in round 1. This pick will make him happy, too
33. Rams Tony Pike, QB
A little reach here, but the rams really need a qb and Tony Pike is the next best option
34. Lions Corey Wooton, DE
Another piece to a new defense. There is no real offensive tackle available at this position, so their next need position is de
35. Buccaneers Donovan Warren, CB
Ronde Barber isn't exactly a youngster , so a new cb is a need
36. Chiefs Golden Tate, WR
The Chiefs need weapons for Matt Cassel. Tate is a playmaker who can score whenever he touches the ball
37. Redskins Jonathan Dwyer, RB
Clinton Portis seems on his way out of Washington. Dwyer is a rb who can carry the load
38. Browns Patrick Robinson, CB
Eric Wright and Brandon McDonald are the starters now. The opposing WRs aren't exactly shaking in their shoes
39. Raiders Colt McCoy, QB
This looks like a raiders pick to me. Al Davis will love Colt, overlook his lack of armstrength and the zone reads, and pick him here
40. Seahawks Jahvid Best, RB
The Hawks would have loved to pick Spiller at #14, but now they get their running back
41. Bills Ricky Sapp, DE
Another part to get their defense better is a pass rusher along Aaron Schobel
42. Buccs Chad Jones, S
Another upgrade of the aging secondary
43. Dolphins Sergio Kindle, OLB
Jason Taylor must be around 100 now and Joey Porter isn't too young either.
44. Patriots Arthur Jones, DE
The patriots shore up their dline with this very active DE
45. Broncos Ciron Black, OT
Ryan Clady is a lock for years, but the right side needs to be secured, too.
46. Giants Nate Allen, S
The giants find their partner for Kenny Phillips. Another great saftey tandem is born
47. Patriots Joe McKnight, RB
Lawrence Maroney is in the doghouse and didn't do much in the last games, so an upgrade is needed
48. Panthers Damian Williams, WR
Steve Smith can't do it all by himself. Having Williams will opponents respect the pass more than they do now, what opens the running game
49. 49ers Perrish Cox, CB
A man-2-man corner who can be a lockdown type player. Has some character concern, so he falls a bit, but who if not Mike S. can get those players straight?
