2010 NFL Mock Draft (First Round)
1. Cleveland Browns - Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
Clausen is an excellent QB that plays in a pro-style offense and leads effectively. He has great arm strength and accuracy.
The Browns will go nowhere with Brady Quinn or Derek Anderson at QB. Quinn is obviously a bust, and Anderson's one good year was a fluke.
Marc Bulger is way past his prime, and the Rams need to get a new QB. Jimmy Clausen is taken, so Locker is the second option. Sam Bradford's stock is going down now, since he got injured at Oklahoma this season.
The Lions have a horrible offensive line, and Stafford will continue to get beaten up until they fix their problem, or he could end up like Joey Harrington. Okung is a four-year starter and has the potential to be a Pro Bowl tackle.
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
The Buccaneers are improving with Josh Freeman at QB, but the Bucs need to rebuild their defense and they have expressed interest in Suh. He is a very explosive lineman who has all-around skill and can play multiple schemes.
5. Oakland Raiders - Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida
Al Davis is a very incompetent owner, and he always picks players based on their 40 times rather than positional needs. He drafted Darrius Heyward-Bey last year and Darren McFadden the year before.
The Raiders need to get a QB and an O-line, but that won't happen as long as Davis is the owner.
Dunlap runs a 4.7, and the Raiders could use help at defensive line. Dunlap, however, is very lazy and is having an unproductive junior year at Florida.
The Chiefs are a mess, and they need to get some defense and an offensive line. With Okung off the board, Berry is first on the radar. He is the best defensive player in the 2010 draft class, and the Chiefs need to fix their secondary.
Daniel Snyder loves drafting big-name players, and Jason Campbell is not the answer at QB. There are rumors that Jon Gruden will become the Redskins' head coach, and he has openly expressed interest in Tebow.
McCoy would be a perfect pick here because the Bills need help at defensive line very badly. McCoy is elite, and he is a great pass rusher. He has even been compared to Kevin Williams.
The Dolphins need to get an inside linebacker, and McClain is available, so he fits perfectly here.
12. Seattle Seahawks (from Chicago) - Jahvid Best, RB, California
Sam Bradford is a very intriguing option, but assuming the Seahawks draft a tackle, Hasselbeck will be able to hang in there for just a bit longer. Justin Forsett had a 100-yard rushing game, but he won't be able to handle not splitting carries.
Julius Jones needs to be replaced, and Best is an explosive RB who is hard to tackle and will work well with his fellow Cal alumnus in Forsett.
13. San Francisco 49ers (from Carolina) - Bryan Bulaga, T, Iowa
The 49ers need to improve their offensive line, and Pashos and Snyder have allowed many sacks. Bulaga would be a big upgrade.
The Jets traded for Braylon Edwards. That shows how desperate they are for a receiver. Edwards is lazy and inconsistent. He drops a lot of passes, and the Jets aren't likely to give him an extension.
Williams would be perfect for the Jets' offense, since Mark Sanchez is the QB and they worked well together at USC.
16. Jacksonville Jaguars - Greg Hardy, DE, Ole Miss
The Jaguars have one of the worst rush defenses in the NFL. They only have 5 sacks, and Derrick Harvey is definitely a bust. The new 3-4 scheme hasn't worked either, and Hardy is the best defensive player available.
17. Green Bay Packers - Charles Brown, T, USC
The Packers have allowed way too many sacks, and Aaron Rodgers never even gets a second to throw the ball. Brown fits the Packers' scheme, and he would give Rodgers some much-needed protection.
18. Baltimore Ravens - Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
Derrick Mason is not gonna be around much longer, and Mark Clayton is not a No. 1 receiver. Bryant was suspended this entire season, but he should be able to perform well at the Combine assuming he works out, and he is too much of a talent to pass up on, especially for the Ravens.
19. Houston Texans- Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama
The Texans need help inside on the D-line to take the pressure off Mario Williams, and Amobi Okoye appears to be a bust.
20. New York Giants- Brandon Spikes, LB, Florida
The Giants have lost four games in a row, and they need an inside linebacker badly. Antonio Pierce is on the decline, and Spikes would be a great successor, but he needs to keep his feet away from opposing players' eyes.
21. Philadelphia Eagles- Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
The Eagles don't have any pressing needs, so they can go for value here.
22. Atlanta Falcons- Travis Lewis, LB, Oklahoma
The Falcons need to find a long-term solution at weakside linebacker. Mike Peterson is not the answer.
23. San Diego Chargers- Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech
LT is past his prime and may retire soon, and Darren Sproles will not be able to handle the RB duties alone, so Dwyer would add some depth.
24. Denver Broncos - Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
The Broncos have the perfect offensive scheme for McCoy. It's a shotgun offense, and Orton isn't a long-term solution, and depth is needed at QB.
25. Dallas Cowboys- Anthony Davis, T, Rutgers
Flozell Adams is old now, and he has committed a lot of false-start penalties, and the Cowboys need to improve their offensive line badly. Tony Romo was sacked five times last week.
26. Arizona Cardinals - Trent Williams, T, Oklahoma
Levi Brown isn't doing well for the Cardinals, and the offensive line would improve with Williams at tackle.
Ben Watson will be a free agent at the end of the season and even if he is re-signed, they could use some depth at tight end.
29. Cincinnati Bengals - Morgan Burnett, S, Georgia Tech
The Bengals don't have any major needs at this point, and Burnett is a solid value pick here.
30. Minnesota Vikings- Earl Thomas, S, Texas
Thomas is the best player available here, and the Vikings have no needs.
31. Indianapolis Colts- Everson Griffen, DE, USC
The Colts have no pressing needs, but Raheem Brock and Robert Mathis are both free agents after next season, and if they draft Griffen now, they can groom him for a year in the NFL, and he can become a very productive DE.
32. New Orleans Saints- Arthur Jones, DT, Syracuse
Jones fits the Saints' 3-4 scheme, and Sedrick Ellis is injury-prone, so depth would be convenient.
