Who Will Be Available for the Redskins at No. 4 in the 2010 NFL Draft? V 1.0
This slideshow is a mock draft for the first three picks in the 2010 NFL Draft leading up to and including Washington's No. 4 pick.
The first three selections are based on what I think are the most glaring needs for those teams. As for the Redskins' pick, I've presented some options - what most likely will happen, what I want to happen, and what should happen. Let me know what you think.
No.1 - St. Louis - Ndamukong Suh - Nebraska - DL
Marc Bulger's days are numbered in St. Louis, but I'm not completely sold on the 2010 QB class. I don't think Jimmy Clausen or Sam Bradford are worthy of the No. 1 overall pick, so St. Louis goes with the sure bet and chooses Suh.
He will be an immediate presence along the defensive line. He'll be able to take on double-teams which will free up Justin Long on the outside.
Possibility: Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame - QB
No. 2 - Detroit - Gerald McCoy - Oklahoma - DL
Detroit could use this pick to help the offensive line in protecting Matt Stafford, however, their defense was dead last. They begin to improve on this by solidifying their defensive line by selecting McCoy.
Possibility: Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska - DL (if St Louis goes with Clausen)
No.3 - Tampa Bay - Russell Okung, Oklahoma St - OT
Like Detroit, Tampa Bay could use another Offensive Lineman to help protect Josh Freeman, but their struggles on defense are too hard to overlook. Tampa should be looking for one of the two top DL in Suh and McCoy to fall to them, but should be off the board by then. Because of that, they decide on Okung.
Possibility: McCoy, Oklahoma - DL (if St Louis goes with Clausen)
No. 4 - Washington - Sam Bradford, Oklahoma - QB - Majority Pick
Like I said, I'm not completely sold on the 2010 QB draft class, however, most mock drafts I've seen have Washington selecting QB Sam Bradford with their first round pick - I hope not.
Campbell has not been given the right opportunity to prove his worth plus there are a lot of other concerns that need addressing.
No. 4 - Washington - Eric Berry - Tennessee - S - My Pick
When Landry was drafted, it presented Washington with one of the best 1-2 safety combinations in the league alongside Sean Taylor.
However, with Sean's passing, Washington's secondary has never been the same. Some complaints have been that the secondary plays too far off receivers because they don't want to give up the big plays. Even with that mindset, we still give them up mainly due to Landry's inability to cover. With Berry, it gives Washington the Safety it needs to go from sideline to sideline which will allow Landry to help in run support.
No. 4 - Washington - Trent Williams - Oklahoma - OT - Fan's Pick
Any Redskin fan knows Washington is in dire need of some help along the offensive line. Picking Trent Williams will provide some youth on an aging line.
