In the NFL calendar, the NFL Draft is perhaps my favorite event of the entire year.
Seeing those young guys step up, shake Commissioner Roger Goodell's hand, and hold up that jersey means so much to me both as a fan and as an aspiring sportswriter.
Seeing the new faces through camp, the season, and sometimes in the playoffs is perhaps one of the best things to follow throughout the season in my opinion.
This is my first serious mock draft, and I have split my slideshow in half to picks 1-16 and finally picks 17-32.
I would really love to get your input, because mock drafts are just as much opinion as they are about overall player talent. But please, if you leave a negative comment, try not to be too harsh—it's not like this is set in stone.
Without further delay, here is my 2010 NFL Mock Draft! Enjoy!
