2010 NFL Mock Draft: Picks 1-10

John WempleContributor IIMarch 25, 2010


1. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford QB, Oklahoma. Bradford missed most of the 2009 season with a serious shoulder injury, but his accuracy is still unreal and the Rams are in need of a franchise quarterback.

2. Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh DT, Nebraska. Suh is easily the best player in this year's draft and Detroit would be stupid to pass on him. He can simply take over a game as a defensive lineman. This man will dominate this position for years to come.

3. Tampa Bay Bucs: Gerald McCoy DT, Oklahoma. McCoy is a finesse guy who can get off the ball very fast. He is not as good as Suh but he is very close.

4. Washington Redskins: Russell Okung OT, Oklahoma State. Okung is a mammoth at tackle that many thought could have been the No. 1 tackle taken last year. With Chris Samuels retiring, Okung could be the perfect replacement to protect Jason Campbell's blind side.

5. Kansas City Chiefs: Jimmy Clausen QB, Notre Dame. This was almost meant to be. With Charlie Weis in K.C., Clausen would fit in great as a Chief. Cassel was good at times last season but didn't live up to expectations. This could be a great fit...or a total disaster.

6. Seattle Seahawks: Eric Berry S, Tennessee. Berry is a beast in the defensive backfield. He is a big hitter and one of the best player's in this year's draft. He will be a great fit for a depleted secondary in Seattle.

7. Cleveland Browns: Joe Haden CB, Florida. The Browns are in love with Haden and are in need of a corner, and Haden is a great shutdown corner. In my eyes, Haden could be a lot like Darrelle Revis.

8. Oakland Raiders: Derrick Morgan DE, Georgia Tech. Morgan is a fast and aggressive player who will live in the backfield. The Raiders didn't re-sign Richard Seymour so Morgan could be a good fit for this lousy D-line.

9. Buffalo Bills: Bruce Campbell OT, Maryland. The Bills traded away Jason Peters last year and really struggled on the offensive line. Campbell is a big aggressive guy who can protect the quarterback.

10. Denver Broncos: Dez Bryant WR, Oklahoma State. The Broncos have yet to strike a deal with Brandon Marshall so I think he is more than likely out of the Mile High City. Bryant is the best receiver on the board and would be a huge complement to Eddie Royal.
