2010 NFL Mock Draft: Playoff Bound Sports Edition

With the 2010 NFL Draft coming tomorrow night at 7:30 eastern time, we here at Playoff Bound Sports have decided to compile a mock draft of how we think this years draft will play out.

Here are some of the guidelines that we used for our mock.

  • No trades allowed. This means that our thinking is based on who we think a team will take if their remain in their original drafting spot.
  • Draft for the teams needs, not any X-Factor, or luxury player. We are not Al Davis!
  • That’s pretty much it for the rules. We wanted to keep it simple.

2010 Mock Draft:

#1. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford/QB- The Rams need to rebuild their offense from the ground down. They have running back Steven Jackson, but other than that, they have no other weapon to strike fear into opposing defenses.

#2. Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh/DT- The Lions are looking for someone to anchor their defense, and who better to do that than the best defensive tackle in the game. Suh changes games, and that’s the bottomline. He can get into the backfield on both run and pass plays. This guy is the complete package.

#3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy/DT- The 2nd best defensive tackle in the game. The Bucs would love to nab McCoy with their pick to be the next Warren Sapp.

#4. Washington Redskins: Russell Okung/OT- Now that the Skins have their quarterback, they need a left tackle to protect him. Okung is the most NFL-ready prospect at this time.

#5. Kansas City Chiefs: Bryan Bulaga/OT- The Chiefs need a little help everywhere, but mostly on their offensive line. Sure, Charlie Weis will try and bring Jimmy Clausen into town, but the Chiefs need a line before they can have any success.

#6. Seattle Seahawks: Mike Iupati/OG- The Seahawks once had a great offensive line, one of the best in the game. By selecting Iupati, they will try and get back to those days where they could pound the ball up the gut.

#7. Cleveland Browns: Jimmy Clausen/QB- The Browns have some playmakers, and showed some promise towards the end of the season, but they need a quarterback to groom for the future, even though vet Jake Delhomme will most likely start for them this season.

#8. Oakland Raiders: Eric Berry/FS- The Raiders are so unpredictable at this point, that no one knows who they will pick. Berry is a smart pick here for the Raiders, and he will be the best player on the board at this point. I would have no arguments if the Raiders went this direction.

#9. Buffalo Bills: Trent Williams/OT- The Bills will make an attempt to rebuild their trenches, and it all starts with the selection of Williams, who is an athletic tackle.

#10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Rolando McClain/ILB- The Jaguars front seven has deteriorated over the years, and McClain could come in and make an instant impact. He is viewed as the best inside linebacker in the draft.

#11. Denver Broncos: Dez Bryant/WR- After trading Brandon Marshall, the Broncos need a receiver for Brady Quinn to throw to. The Broncos shouldn’t take too long in making this decision here, Bryant will be their guy.

#12. Miami Dolphins: Derrick Morgan/OLB- Numerous sources say that if Morgan is still on the board, that he will be Miami’s guy. The Dolphins are in desperate need of a pass rusher, and Morgan could fit the bill.

#13. San Francisco 49ers: Joe Haden-/CB Haden is the shut down corner that the 49ers need for their old and creaky secondary.

#14. Seattle Seahawks (Denver): Jason Pierre-Paul/DE- With their second pick in the 1st round, the Seahawks will look for that playmaker that can bring electricity to their stadium.

#15. New York Giants: Sergio Kindle/OLB- The Giants need to get back to their old pass rushing days of years past, and Kindle is viewed as the most complete and prolific pass rusher in the draft this year.

#16. Tennessee Titans: Dan Williams/NT- The Titans have been trying to get Albert Haynesworth back in Tennessee, but if they fail at this, Williams will be brought in as an insurance policy.

#17. San Francisco 49ers(Carolina): C. J. Spiller/RB- Spiller is the perfect back to complement Frank Gore. Spiller can bounce the ball outside, and provide the homerun threat that the 49ers desperately need on offense.

#18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Maurkice Pouncey/C- The Steelers need help on the offensive line bad, and Pouncey provides versatility on the line.

#19. Atlanta Falcons: Brandon Graham/DE- The Falcons pass rushers are getting old. Who better to come in, and carry the torch than Graham, who is known for his knack for getting to the quarterback.

#20. Houston Texans: Earl Thomas/FS- Thomas is a prolific ball hawk, that makes interception after interception. He has a knack for the ball, and would be a much needed playmaker in the back of the Texans secondary.

#21. Cincinnati Bengals: DeMaryius Thomas/WR- The Bengals need another receiver to complement Chad OchoCinco, and Thomas has some of the big play ability that the Bengals look for in their receivers. He is a freakish athlete, and will complete the Bengals offense.

#22. New England Patriots: Jermaine Gresham/TE- The Patriots lack the go to tight end in their offense, and Gresham could be the Pats answer to this problem. Even though Gresham has not played in a year, he is athletic enough to still be the best tight end in the draft. He will be a great addition to New England’s offense.

#23. Green Bay Packers: Everson Griffin/DE- Griffin will be the pass rusher that will fill the shoes of the since departed Aaron Kampman.

#24. Philadelphia Eagles: Sean Weatherspoon/LB- Weatherspoon can play both inside and outside linebacker, and is versatile and athletic enough to be the leader of the Eagles defense for years to come. He is a football, but his attitude has scared some teams off.

#25. Baltimore Ravens: Taylor Mays/S- Mays is a hard hitting safety who the Ravens will snatch up if he falls to them at #25. Mays is big enough that he can play some linebacker, and he hits like one too. He does not have the greatest ball skills, so a transformation to linebacker in the future could be in the plans for Mays.

#26. Arizona Cardinals: Rob Gronkowski/TE- If it were not for injuries, Gronkowski would be higher up on many mocks. He will be the final addition to the Cardinals offense, as they have yet to draft a tight end who can do both block, and catch the ball effectively.

#27. Dallas Cowboys: Arrelious Benn/WR- The Cowboys are in search of a receiver, and Benn will be their guy if DeMaryius Thomas is off the board. Benn needs some work on running routes, but adds the explosiveness, and great hands for teams to work with.

#28. San Diego Chargers: Jared Odrick/DT- Odrick will be a much needed run stopping force in the middle of the Chargers defense. Last year the Bolts struggled to stop the run, and Odrick could be the solution to this puzzle.

#29. New York Jets: Brian Price/DT- Price is the type of guy that Rex Ryan likes. Price is big, and can get into the backfield and disrupt plays on both passing and running downs. Price can take up multiple lineman, and still shed tackles. This man takes up space (like Ryan) and has the potential to be a force in the league, with the right mentoring.

#30. Minnesota Vikings: Kyle Wilson/CB- The Vikings are in desperate need for some young talent at the cornerback spot, and Wilson can double as both your starting corner, and your return man on kickoffs. The Vikings secondary is starting to get a little creaky, and Wilson will inject some much needed speed and youth into the lineup.

#31. Indianapolis Colts: Anthony Davis/OT- The Colts have built their team around protecting Peyton Manning, and this year, their goal will be to build up the trenches with solid, reliable players such as Davis. The Colts struggled with injuries last year in the trenches, and will be looking for depth if nothing else.

#32. New Orleans Saints: Carlos Dunlap/DE- The Saints will be looking to add another pass rusher, and at the last pick in the first round, there are very few elite pass rushers left. But Dunlap knows how to get to the quarterback, and should gel with Saints defensive coordinator Gary Williams’ system.

So there is our official mock draft. Tell us what you think in the comments!

  1. If Berry is there the Browns will take him. If not, it appears they will take Morgan.
