With the 2010 NFL Draft just hours away, headlines and rumors are taking center stage as we all get set to view the festivities tonight at 7:30 EST. As I run down all the thousands upon thousands of possibilities in my notebook, I thought I would bring some of those burning questions to you, the Bleacher faithful, and see where everyone’s opinions are.

So without further ado.

1. Jimmy Clausen is being reported to possibly falling into the lap of the Vikings, which counter original speculation of perhaps Tim Tebow being the heir to the Favre throne. Is either QB worth considering with Favre still undecided AND dealing with a slow healing process with his ankle?

2. So J-Lo has said that the Dolphins should take NT Dan Williams from Tennessee with their first pick. With Marshall in town, it would make sense, but what about all the trouble they had in the secondary last year J-Lo? Dolphin Nation, your rebuttal.

3. Mike Holmgren is being reported as trying to make one last push for a No.1 pick, but the Rams are like that girl that keeps saying no, so why beat a dead horse? With Tampa Bay looking to trade down, wouldn’t it make more sense to try and strike a deal with them? I think so, what about you guys?

4. One of the biggest trade stories floating around the Internet right now is the possibility of Big Ben being traded. Now, while it is pretty much turning out to be pre-draft fluff more than reality the question remains whether or not, the Steelers target a QB earlier than expected. Steel town desperately needs a CB and a player like Joe Hayden could be a perfect fit…or could he?

5. The Eagles are trying to trade up to No. 12 overall reports ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, and the rumors are they are also taking a hard look at Texas safety Earl Thomas. The Eagles struggled last year trying to recover from the exodus of Brian Dawkins and they suffered the most at Safety, but is this the right move?
