They wear the number 93 on their jerseys. They suit up in red on Saturdays. They have been terrorizing Big XII backfields for the past four years. Their names? Nadamukong Suh and Gerald McCoy.
Heading into Combine week, everyone is buzzing about these two defensive tackles, and they should be.
These two guys are forces in the trenches. They dominate offensive lineman. They have a chance to be the first and second overall picks in this April's upcoming draft. But will they?
This is a very good question. Right now, it is fun to talk about the possibility of these guys going 1 & 2 overall, but two defensive tackles being drafted in the first two spots hasn't happened in, well, ever.
So its very hard to decipher where these guys will go or where anyone will go, but I'm going to give it a shot. Here's my first edition 2010 mock draft:
1. Saint Louis Rams - Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
2. Detroit Lions - Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
4. Washington Redskins - Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
5. Kansas City Chiefs - Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
6. Seattle Seahawks - Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
7. Cleveland Browns - Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
8. Oakland Raiders - Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
9. Buffalo Bills - Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
10. Trade Miami Dolphins (from Jacksonville) - Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama
11. Denver Broncos (from Chicago) - Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
12. Jacksonville Jaguars - Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
13. San Francisco 49ers - Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
14. Seattle Seahawks (from Denver) - Joe Haden, CB, Florida
15. New York Giants - Earl Thomas, S, Texas
16. San Francisco 49ers - Everson Griffen, DE, Southern California
17. Tennessee Titans - Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida
18. Pittsburgh Steelers - Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
19. Atlanta Falcons - Brian Price, DT, UCLA
20. Houston Texans - CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson
21. Cinncinati Bengals - Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB, Texas
22. New England Patriots - Ricky Sapp, DE/OLB, Clemson
23. Green Bay Packers - Bruce Campell, OT, Maryland
24. Philedelphia Eagles - Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan
25. Baltimore Ravens - Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame
26. Arizona Cardinals - Navorro Bowman, LB, Penn State
27. Dallas Cowboys - Taylor Mays, S, USC
28. San Diego Chargers - Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech
29. New York Jets - Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida
30. Minnesota Vikings - Ricky Sapp, DE/OLB, Clemson
31. Indianapolis Colts - Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
32. New Orleans Saints - Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida State
Right now all the focus is on these interior lineman but as usually, the focus willgo back to the quarterbacks.
