    Nick's Final 2010 Two-Round NFL Mock and Seven-Round Rams Mock

    This thing is likely going to be out of date in less than 24 hours because of trades and whatnot, but it's unlikely I pump another one of these out between now and the draft. So I present to you my final projection for the 2010 NFL Draft! Enjoy!




    ROUND ONE

    1. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
    -There’s been talk as the draft nears that the Rams would be wise to trade down from this pick. However, without a blockbuster offer, it’s unlikely to happen. Sam Bradford may not be the best player in this class, but as the best quarterback, he fills the Rams’ biggest need and gives them a fresh face to build around.

    2. Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
    -On Monday, Lions fans attending a team pre-draft event chanted the name of Ndamukong Suh, to which head coach Jim Schwartz said, “You won’t be disappointed.” Though some believe the Lions are a candidate to take an offensive tackle, Sam Bradford’s selection by the Rams cements Suh as Detroit’s pick here.

    3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
    -Reports suggest that the Buccaneers may prefer Nebraska defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh over McCoy, but they’ll certainly be happy to get the outstanding Oklahoma lineman with Suh off the board. McCoy played in a penetrating one-gap defense for the Sooners, so he’ll feel right at home in Tampa Bay’s defense.

    4. Washington Redskins: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
    -This pick could really go either way between the top two tackles, but there seems to be some legitimate buzz about Trent Williams being the better fit for Mike Shanahan’s zone blocking system. The Redskins are in desperate need for offensive line help, so unless Sam Bradford slips, it’s hard to believe they won’t look at either Williams or Russell Okung.

    5. Kansas City Chiefs: Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
    -The Chiefs will have an interesting decision to make. They already feel as if they have a talented left tackle in Branden Albert, but Okung’s addition would allow them to move Albert to another position on the line, thus upgrading two spots. While Eric Berry will certainly be tempting, I expect the Chiefs to go with Okung if he’s available.

    6. Seattle Seahawks: C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson
    -Given the fact that Ray Willis opened Seahawks minicamp as the starting left tackle, offensive line is clearly a need for Seattle. But the best two are off the board, and Bryan Bulaga may not be great value here. C.J. Spiller’s ability as a runner, receiver, and return man may remind head coach Pete Carroll of Reggie Bush.

    7. Cleveland Browns: Eric Berry, DB, Tennessee
    -Despite public comments by Mike Holmgren, the Browns may give some consideration to Notre Dame quarterback Jimmy Clausen. However, I think they’re willing to wait on their quarterback, especially if Eric Berry slips to this spot. The Tennessee standout would be an immediate upgrade for the Browns at either safety spot.

    8. Oakland Raiders: Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
    -It’s always fun to try and predict whom the Oakland Raiders are going to draft in any given year. Last spring, they shocked many by taking receiver Darius Heyward-Bey over Michael Crabtree. Al Davis has an affinity for speed and potential, and South Florida’s Jason Pierre-Paul offers a great combination of both.

    9. Buffalo Bills: Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
    -It’s possible that Buffalo will give Jimmy Clausen a hard look here, as their quarterback situation isn’t exactly stable. But they’ve had a huge hole at left tackle since they traded away Jason Peters, so if one of the top three prospects at the position manages to slide here, it’s going to be hard for Buffalo to pass him up.

    10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Earl Thomas, DB, Texas
    -The Jags are rumored to be interested in C.J. Spiller and Jason Pierre-Paul, but both are off the board at this point. Meanwhile, free safety Reggie Nelson has been a rather big disappointment. Drafting Thomas gives Jacksonville an insurance policy if Nelson flops who can also play cornerback if Reggie turns things around.

    11. Denver Broncos (f/CHI): Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama
    -This could be a landing spot for Oklahoma State receiver Dez Bryant now that the Broncos traded away Brandon Marshall, but Denver may not want to take on another immature receiver. What they could really use is a thumping presence at inside linebacker in their 3-4 defense, and that’s where some feel Rolando McClain’s best fit may be.

    12. Miami Dolphins: Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee
    -The Dolphins have addressed their need at inside linebacker with the addition of Karlos Dansby, and the Brandon Marshall deal eliminates the receiver position from consideration as well. With 35-year-old nose tackle Jason Ferguson set to serve an eight game suspension this year, the Dolphins would be wise to plan for the future.

    13. San Francisco *****: Joe Haden, CB, Florida
    -Who would have thought the ***** would have to decide between Haden, the draft’s top pure corner, and Clausen, one of the best quarterbacks? Though the ***** may feel compelled to take the passer, they still have another pick and can’t pass up a cornerback of Haden’s talent. Maybe they’ll get lucky and Jimmy will continue to slip.

    14. Seattle Seahawks (f/DEN): Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
    -The Seahawks passed on Bryan Bulaga, thinking they could get value at the tackle position later. Sure enough, the draft’s fourth best tackle is still available here. Anthony Davis had the potential to challenge Russell Okung for the top spot at the position, but his offseason was a mixed bag. He’ll be welcomed in Seattle as the future replacement for Walter Jones.

    15. New York Giants: Mike Iupati, OL, Idaho
    -If the Giants want to get back to the power running days of the not-so-distant past, then they’re going to need to make some tough decision on their offensive line. Tackle William Beatty will be competing for a starting job this summer, but the addition of a talented blocker like Mike Iupati would be a welcomed addition as well.

    16. Tennessee Titans: Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
    -In the past two years, the Titans have lost two of their bigger stars on the defensive line in Albert Haynesworth and Kyle Vanden Bosch. Being able to replace talent with talent is a must, and while Tennessee has a few young players on their line, Derrick Morgan would give them a nice building block at the end position.

    17. San Francisco ***** (f/CAR): Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
    -Well, the ***** rolled the dice and elected to go with Joe Haden with their first first-round pick, hoping they would get lucky and find Clausen available here. Sure enough, the board fell that way. The Notre Dame signal-caller will find numerous targets awaiting him in San Francisco, and should be ready to compete for the job immediately.

    18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida
    -If the Steelers are going to regain their success, they’re going to have to do a better job protecting Ben “How you doin’?” Roethlisberger, even if the fan base doesn’t want them to. They have needs across the board on their offensive line, but Pouncey is the best value at this point and would be a nice fit as the heir to Justin Hartwig’s center job.

    19. Atlanta Falcons: Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
    -I went back and forth with this pick, between Weatherspoon and Michigan’s Brandon Graham. The Falcons have needs at both positions, and both players have had outstanding offseasons. Ultimately though, I went with Weatherspoon, who would be an upgrade over both Mike Peterson and Stephen Nicholas.

    20. Houston Texans: Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
    -For the longest time, I had Fresno State’s Ryan Mathews penciled into this spot. He very well could be the pick. But the Texans already have some bodies in the backfield. Meanwhile, they’ve done next to nothing to replace Dunta Robinson, who bolted for the Falcons. If Kyle Wilson is still available, he’ll be very tempting for Houston.

    21. Cincinnati Bengals: Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
    -Dez Bryant’s free-fall stops at a not-entirely-unexpected location. While the Bengals addressed their need at receiver with the signing of Antonio Bryant, it would be hard for them to pass on the younger Bryant. Dez wouldn’t have the pressure to contribute immediately, and he’d give Cincinnati security for the future at receiver.

    22. New England Patriots: Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
    -The Patriots are shocked that the Bengals passed on Sooners tight end Jermaine Gresham, and though New England may have been considering defense, they could opt to go with the offensive weapon. The Pats signed Alge Crumpler to replace the departing Ben Watson, but Gresham would be a much better long-term replacement.

    23. Green Bay Packers: Sergio Kindle, LB, Texas
    -In their playoff loss to Arizona, the Packers couldn’t seem to bring down Kurt Warner in the pocket. Though they added Clay Matthews last year, they lost Aaron Kampman and need another dynamic pass rushing linebacker for their 3-4 scheme. Kindle finished the season with a great performance against Alabama, and may be the draft’s best rush ‘backer.

    24. Philadelphia Eagles: Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan
    -Philadelphia is pretty happy to see Graham here, knowing he could easily go in the 10-20 range to other teams also needing pass rush help. The Eagles have done nothing in free agency to give Trent Cole some help on their defensive line, so I wouldn’t expect them to pass on Graham if he’s somehow available here.

    25. Baltimore Ravens: Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama
    -Even though the Ravens made the wide receiver position a free agency priority, it wouldn’t be surprising to see them take a talented prospect like Demaryius Thomas. However, their secondary is in need of some youth as well, and Kareem Jackson is a battle-tested cornerback from the SEC who is ready to play pro football.

    26. Arizona Cardinals: Jerry Hughes, LB, TCU
    -The addition of Joey Porter is a solid move in the short-term, but the Cardinals are going to have to find some solutions for the long-term when it comes to their pass rush. Jerry Hughes was in the opposition’s backfield so much in college, he should have set up a tent. He’s built perfectly for the 3-4 outside linebacker role.

    27. Dallas Cowboys: Taylor Mays, S, USC
    -Taylor Mays has taken quite a slide down draft boards since this time last year, where some believed he’d compete with Eric Berry to be the best safety in this class. Now, there’s a chance he won’t even be drafted in the first round. But since Dallas cut Ken Hamlin and has virtually nothing at the position, I wouldn’t be surprised to see them pull the trigger.

    28. San Diego Chargers: Ryan Mathews, RB, Fresno State
    -If Ryan Mathews makes it by Houston and New England, chances will be good he slides to San Diego. And that’s a dream scenario for the Chargers, because after parting ways with LaDainian Tomlinson this offseason, they need someone whom they can pair with electrifying runner Darren Sproles. Mathews would make a nice compliment.

    29. New York Jets: Jared Odrick, DL, Penn State
    -Another lucky break for a contending AFC team, as Odrick could very well be off the board by this time. He’s considered one of the top 3-4 defensive ends in this class, and after the Jets filled needs at cornerback and wide receiver by trading for Antonio Cromartie and Santonio Holmes, they’ll be looking to upgrade an aging defensive line.

    30. Minnesota Vikings: Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers
    -The Vikings just signed Lito Sheppard to a one-year deal, but anyone who has watched Lito play the last couple of years knows he shouldn’t be seen outside of maybe a dime package. He simply adds to a Vikings secondary already filled with injury concerns. Someone young and talented, like Rutgers’ Devin McCourty, would be an ideal pick.

    31. Indianapolis Colts: Charles Brown, OT, USC
    -The Colts don’t seem to be particularly enamored with Charlie Johnson at left tackle, and Tony Ugoh was benched in favor of Johnson. So perhaps it’s time for the Colts to try another option for protecting Peyton Manning’s blind side. Because of the value of the position, don’t be surprised if USC’s Brown sneaks into the first round.

    32. New Orleans Saints: Everson Griffen, DE, USC
    -I really think that Everson Griffen is a good defensive end prospect in his own right, but he’s trapped behind a number of other pass rushers in this class. That’s not going to bother New Orleans if it means he gets pushed down to the bottom of the first round, because despite their signing of Alex Brown, the Saints could pounce on Griffen.



    ROUND TWO

    33. St. Louis Rams: Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech
    -Now that the Rams have their quarterback, they need to surround him with weapons. Thomas has loads of upside for the next level.

    34. Detroit Lions: Rodger Saffold, OT, Indiana
    -The Lions continue to address the trenches, this time by taking an offensive tackle prospect who is building momentum.

    35. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida
    -A great draft so far for Tampa Bay, as they add two Top Ten talents on their line. The problem is only one of them plays up to that potential.

    36. Kansas City Chiefs: Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame
    -The Chiefs are ecstatic to see Tate available here, as it allows them to reunite him with his college coach, Charlie Weis.

    37. Philadelphia Eagles (f/WAS): Morgan Burnett, FS, Georgia Tech
    -There’s talk that the Eagles may want to move up in the first round for a safety; Burnett is a great consolation prize if they stay put.

    38. Cleveland Browns: Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
    -The Browns waited on a quarterback in the first round, and are rewarded with a guy who many feel is a great fit for Mike Holmgren’s West Coast system.

    39. Oakland Raiders: Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
    -Some people believe the Raiders will take Campbell in the first round, but I have a hard time believing Al Davis is that dumb.

    40. San Diego Chargers (f/SEA): Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama
    -This is an incredible draft for the Chargers, as they not only improve their backfield, but make a big splash in replacing Jamal Williams at nose tackle.

    41. Buffalo Bills: Tim Tebow, QB, Florida
    -The Bills went offensive tackle in the first round, so they’ll come back in round two and Tebow, who got the thumbs up from Jim Kelly.

    42. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (f/CHI): Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida State
    -The Bucs continue to restock on defense, this time selecting a Florida State standout who just needs to find consistency.

    43. Denver Broncos (f/MIA): Arrelious Benn, WR, Illinois
    -Trading away Brandon Marshall means the Broncos are in the market for a receiver; Benn has first round potential.

    44. New England (f/JAX): Jahvid Best, RB, California
    -Best may not be able to carry the load at the NFL level, which makes him a nice fit for a Patriots team that features a lot of runners.

    45. Denver Broncos: Rob Gronkowski, TE, Arizona
    -Though tight end Tony Scheffler wasn’t heavily featured in Denver, there’s still a pretty sizable need here.

    46. New York Giants: Brian Price, DT, UCLA
    -Price was a potential first round talent who just didn’t seem to impress during the offseason. But he’s nice value here for New York.

    47. New England Patriots (f/TEN): Tyson Alualu, DL, California
    -Trading Richard Seymour to Oakland has left a hole on the Patriots’ defensive line; Alualu has a shot at sneaking into the first round.

    48. Carolina Panthers: Lamarr Houston, DT, Texas
    -The Panthers have lost a number of plays on their defensive line this offseason, so they’ll need to use this pick to restock.

    49. San Francisco *****: Vladimir Ducasse, OT, Massachusetts
    -After passing on an offensive tackle in the first round, San Francisco lucks out and finds Vladimir Ducasse available here.

    50. Kansas City Chiefs (f/ATL): Koa Misi, LB, Utah
    -Tamba Hali needs some help pressuring the quarterback in Kansas City, and people are raving about Misi’s transition to linebacker.

    51. Houston Texans: Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford
    -Taking the draft’s second best cornerback in the first round proved to be a nice move, as the Texans are able to grab Gerhart here.

    52. Pittsburgh Steelers: Chris Cook, DB, Virginia
    -Cornerback is one of Pittsburgh’s biggest needs, but Cook could also play some safety if Ryan Clark and Will Allen disappoint.

    53. New England Patriots: Jason Worilds, LB, Virginia Tech
    -Worilds is a converted defensive end who would be an excellent fit as an outside linebacker in the Patriots’ 3-4 scheme.

    54. Cincinnati Bengals: Nate Allen, S, South Florida
    -Cincinnati couldn’t resist Dez Bryant in round one, but they’ll come back in round two and take a player at an actual position of need.

    55. Philadelphia Eagles: Jon Asamoah, OG, Illinois
    -There’s some uncertainty on the Eagles’ offensive line, and Asamoah gives them some options to shift some people around.

    56. Green Bay Packers: Jared Veldheer, OT, Hillsdale
    -Rather than reach for a tackle in the first round, the Packers sit tight and take a solid small-school prospect in Veldheer.

    57. Baltimore Ravens: Linval Joseph, DT, East Carolina
    -Joseph is a guy, like Alualu, who could sneak into the first round on draft day. He’d be great value for the Ravens here.

    58. Arizona Cardinals: Torrell Troup, NT, UCF
    -It’s hard to find a good 3-4 nose tackle, so Troup may end up going a bit higher than you’d think. Branch’s move to DE makes this position a need.

    59. Dallas Cowboys: Alex Carrington, DL, Arkansas State
    -The Cowboys are reportedly interested in adding some help on their defensive line, and Carrington looked quite good at the Senior Bowl.

    60. Seattle Seahawks (f/SEA): Damian Williams, WR, USC
    -I feel Williams is excellent value here, and it just so happens that Seattle’s new head coach is his old college coach.

    61. New York Jets: Eric Norwood, LB, South Carolina
    -The Jets added Jason Taylor, but that isn’t a long-term solution. Eric Norwood brings the kind of intangibles that Vernon Gholston lacks.

    62. Minnesota Vikings: Dexter McCluster, RB, Mississippi
    -Losing Chester Taylor is a bigger blow than some think; McCluster gives Minnesota a nice situational guy behind AP.

    63. Indianapolis Colts: Brandon Ghee, CB, Wake Forest
    -The loss of Marlin Jackson leaves the Colts thin at cornerback; Ghee has the skills to be a good zone coverage defender.

    64. New Orleans Saints: Daryl Washington, LB, TCU
    -Having missed out on a linebacker in the first round, the Saints come back in round two and find Washington, who could replace Scott Fujita.





    RAMS MOCK DRAFT

    Round Three (65): Montario Hardesty, RB, Tennessee
    -There’s some concern about Hardesty’s past injuries, but he won’t be asked to carry the load in St. Louis. His skills as a blocker and receiver make him especially intriguing.

    Round Four (99): Jermaine Cunningham, DE, Florida
    -Less heralded than teammate Carlos Dunlap, Cunningham is an appealing mid-round option for a Rams team in need of help at defensive end.

    Round Five (132): Pat Angerer, LB, Iowa
    -The Rams appear to have some serviceable options at linebacker, but Angerer’s work ethic could get him a look.

    Round Five (135): Larry Asante, DB, Nebraska
    -Asante calls himself “The Assassin” and prides himself on being a big hitter from the safety position.

    Round Six (170): Colin Peek, TE, Alabama
    -The Rams found better value than tight end early on, but Peek is from the old school mold and could compete for time.

    Round Seven (211): Nate Collins, DT, Virginia
    -Played the nose in Virginia’s 3-4 scheme, but is viewed as a possible candidate for the three-technique spot in the pros.

    Round Seven (226): Ryan Stamper, LB, Florida
    -Good size; showed up big in Brandon Spikes’ absence against Tennessee last season.

    Round Seven (254): Andrew Tyshovnytsky, OT, Fordham
    -A small school tackle gaining some momentum, Tyshovnytsky impressed at his pro day.

    Re: Nick's Final 2010 Two-Round NFL Mock and Seven-Round Rams Mock

    Great stuff as usual, good sir. Have to spread it round before I can rep you for it. Consider this an IOU. Couple of things I thought I'd make note of.

    -I'll address the Rams first. Love the first two picks, they're mine too. Do you buy the defensively oriented Spagnuolo going offense with each of the first three picks?

    -Great picks for the Patriots. I sort of hate that I have to say that. With that said, I probably would have gone with Odrick at 22. There's plenty of depth to be had in round two at both DE and TE. I guess we differ on who's the better player!

    -Oakland is interesting. You made the call on DHB last year so I won't second guess you on the physical specimen. I like Campbell in round two and like you, I don't think Davis will pass if he's there.

    -Good choice for Carolina.

    -What happens if the Skins go with Okung? Will this affect what the Chiefs do? I can see Bulaga/Williams but Berry might be the better value. Can you see McClain at 5?

    -I like what you've done for the Texans. I think I'd prefer Wilson/Gerhart to Matthews/Cook.

    I can't wait for tomorrow!

    Re: Nick's Final 2010 Two-Round NFL Mock and Seven-Round Rams Mock

    I got excited when I saw you had cinci taking dez over gresham...then i saw you also had gresham going the very next pick lol...I don't think he'll make it to round 2 either...(although I thought the same about laurinitis last year...)

    Hopefully mayock has him slipping when they release his mock...

    altogether really liked it, awesome job!

    Re: Nick's Final 2010 Two-Round NFL Mock and Seven-Round Rams Mock

    Not sold on Thomas because of the combination of the injury and the lack of experience running a route tree. However, if he is a guy that would be a clear first rounder with those two things sorted out, then id be happy with him at number 2. Im just not sure how soon he can contribute at WR with him having to learn so much.

    1) I don't think they'll do it by design, but it just so happened the best players on the board in this projection were offensive in rounds two and three. For instance, if a good defensive lineman falls to the Rams at the top of the second round, they very well may strike.

    2) Odrick is a big possibility at 22, I agree. But for me it came down to whether or not you want the #1 tight end or the #4 defensive tackle. I think there are a couple of good 3-4 DL in the second round, so they may wait. But I agree he's one of their big possibilities in the first.

    3) I don't think I had DHB to Oakland in my final mock last year, so I can't take credit for that. While they surprise everyone every year, I just don't think they'll take Campbell that high. Maybe they take Anthony Davis even though he's slipped. There's been some talk about them going for Idaho's Mike Iupati as well.

    4) Thanks! It sounds as though Houston has been quietly moving up boards for a little while. I had him pegged more in the third round range, but looking around, I see more and more people viewing him in that mid second round area.

    5) If the Skins go Okung instead of Trent Williams, I think the Chiefs may lean Berry over Williams or Bulaga. It's one thing to pass on Berry for the best OT on the board, but when you start getting into the #2 and #3 range, you might just take the safety. And they may take Berry over any of them, if they truly feel confident in their current line. Wouldn't surprise me at all.

    6) Thanks. I think it's very possible that the Texans go Ryan Mathews in round one, but I asked myself, is Houston better off taking the #2 CB or the #2 RB? They already have Slaton and need more of a compliment than anything else. They have virtually nothing at CB, so I went with the bigger need.

    If the Rams can get Gresham in round two, it would fill a huge hole. Just not sure I see him sliding there anymore. Maybe we'll get lucky.

    He may be a first rounder in spite of those things. Some have, at times, projected him as high as #10 to the Jaguars, but I think more realistically he falls in that 21-36 range. I had a hard time believing his stock wouldn't slip a bit because of the injury, but it seems like he's risen up boards in spite of it. If he's there, he's a real possibility for the Rams.

    I'm citing the draft day chat, actually. I distinctly remember Oakland being on the clock and you making the call. Something like "it's going to be Crabtree, Monroe or Darius Heyward-Bey. For the hell of it I'll say DHB".

    LOL!! I honestly can't remember, but since it makes me sound smart, I'll sign off on your recollection of events.

    I would LOVE to see the Rams land Thomas in Round 2. I have him going in Round 1, but I hope I'm wrong.

    I also really like the selection of Hardesty in Round 3.

    The only beef I have with your picks is that RT is not addressed sooner. I think the Rams need to invest a 4th or 5th round pick on that spot. I have the Rams taking Marshall Newsome. I also like Kyle Calloway from Iowa as a possible selection.

    Peek is a great pick at the spot where you have him.

    Nice job as always, Nick!
