NFL Mock Draft Round 1

1.) Rams- QB Sam Bradford, Oklahoma
-I really am a bit cynical about this pick but all signs are pointing in this direction.

2.) Lions- OT Russell Okung, Oklahoma St.
-Lions have been spending money on the defensive line and they have not addressed their O-Line needs in the previous two draft. Now is the time.

3.) Bucs- DT Gerald McCoy, Oklahoma
-One of the more bizarre developments is how McCoy has risen above Suh in numerous draft boards as the premiere DT. Not that neither is chopped liver but sometimes I think such a development is the result of over-analysis against Suh.

4.) Redskins- QB Jimmy Clausen, Notre Dame
-This is the most popular guesses in mocks from both the novices and the experts. Would not be surprised if Shanahan and Allen pulled a fast one on people but this team is so enigmatic it is hard to sell any need more major than QB.

5.) Chiefs- OT Trent Williams, Oklahoma
-Can move Brandon Albert to a more comfortable position as Guard. Eric Berry is a popular pick but Berry's play last year under a pro defense was just not a good fit, especially when you consider that defense can be a feast for defensive backs.

6.) Seahawks- DT Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska
-Best player available. The blue-chip O-Lineman are taken. No reason to reach. Could be a trade down for more picks and Suh being there is a nice carrot.

7.) Browns- S Eric Berry, Tennessee
-There is finally a fun, exciting player on defense for the Browns. Mangini, like him or not, developed solid defensive backs and perhaps for Berry this system will be better than Tampa-2.

8.) Raiders- OT Anthony Davis, Rutgers
-Al Davis likes physical athletic OTs. Davis seems to fit the bill and would probably be the highest pick in Rutgers history if this happened. I could see the classic Al Davis reach with Vlad Ducasse, Mike Iupati, or Bruce Campbell with this pick.

9.) Bills- WR Dez Bryant, Oklahoma State
-OK this pick may be wishful thinking since the Bills seem very conservative in the draft. Forget this Tebow hogwash some people have been calling for, Dez Bryant is one of the most talented players in this draft and will put a strut into the step of the Bills offense. I am wary however of how the heck Chan Gailey is going to want for his offense. I could see the Bills trading down.

10.) Jaguars-CB Joe Haden, Florida
-Just as some factions of Bills fandom there is a lot of pressure against the Jaguars to take the golden child Tebow even though his talent translating into the NFL is a major question mark and to say this pick is a reach is an understatement. Haden offers much needed youth in their secondary. He may not get the stadium to sell out with the novelty he offers but he can definitely make a difference in the Jags' W-L record.

11.) Broncos (f/Bears)- MLB Rolando McClain, Alabama
-With Dez Bryant off the board and no real blue-chip WR worthy of this spot, the Broncos settle on a player for their front seven. After cutting Andra Davis, there needs to be a new sidekick for DJ Williams up the middle. McClain had no real glaring flaws with possible exception to the revelation he has Crohn's Disease. According to many people in the know, this is not considered a major red flag for McClain- at least in effecting his draft status.

12.) Dolphins- DT Dan Williams, Tennessee
-With the Dansby signing the LB position appears less glaring of a need. The Dolphins, however, do need a big body in the trenches and Williams fits the bill.

13.) 49ers- OLB/DE Sergio Kindle, Texas
-Coach Singletary has still not found the pass-rusher on the edge for his team. Kindle, overshadowed by Orakpo for most of his college career, still managed to shine his senior year though he is certainly relying on the fact he was one of the biggest blue-chip recruits out of high school.

14.) Seahawks- RB CJ Spiller, Clemson
-While Taylor Mays is an appealing pick considering the Carroll connection and the Seattle roots, Seattle needs a spark plug and Spiller fits the bill.

15.) Giants- DE Derrick Morgan, Georgia Tech
-And the streak since the Giants last took a LB in Round 1 lives on. I actually can live with this pick. Osi is unhappy, Kiwinuka really has no real purpose on this team- so we need a pure pass-rusher. Morgan seems like a perfect Coughlin player. He is also considered a steal at #15.

16.) Titans- DE Jason Pierre-Paul, South Florida
-Consider Vanden Bosch left town just a year removed from Haynesworth leaving, this is a considerable need. Jason Jones looks like a stud in waiting but JPP would be a good tag-team guy on the other side.

17.) 49ers- OT Bryan Bulaga, Iowa
-This guy is a very polarizing player. Many are having a lot of doubts if he can amount to nothing but a RT while others consider him the best OT after Okung in the draft. 'Niners MO are known for taking the best available players at need. They are hot and cold in that respect but this seems like a reasonable spot for Bulaga.

18.) Steelers- OT Charles Brown, USC
-USC O-Lineman under the Pete Carroll reign have not exactly inspired the masses in their professional play and this is a bit of a reach. Brown, however, is far more ready to play than Campbell, Ducasse, or Iupati. Could see Steelers trade down.

19.) Falcons- OLB/ILB Sean Weatherspoon, Mizzou
-This guy can play off the edge or inside.

20.) Texans- SS Earl Thomas, Texas
-It was only a matter of time before a favorite son got drafted. Thomas, as noted, is graded by some experts as one of the best safety(s). The Texans need work in their secondary. Now many want an immediate replacement for Dunta Robinson with a CB but there is really no standout player at this point unless you want to reach for Kyle Wilson. Thomas provides leadership and moxy, as well as need.

21.) Bengals- S Taylor Mays, USC
-Mays, unlike Berry, is really feeling the backlash for his senior campaign which is somewhat too much over-analysis but there is certain amount of truth that he was in much better position as a Junior. Bengals need somebody on Defense and really, Roy Williams is only good for the first 5-10 yards from scrimmage.

22.) Patriots- DE/DT Everson Griffen, USC
-He may not be the next Richard Seymour but he does provide a good void to fill since the Seymour trade.

23.) Packers- DE/OLB Brandon Graham, Michigan
-Aaron Kampman left Green Bay after he just could not fit into the Dom Capers defense. Graham can at least be molded into the rusher OLB/DE coming off the edge.

24.) Philadelphia Eagles- CB Kyle Wilson, Boise State
-The glaring needs are in the secondary. Wilson provides some athleticism and perhaps involved in the return game, though a team with Maclin and Jackson that seems unlikely. Would not be surprised if Devin McCourty is taken in this spot.

25.) Ravens- WR Golden Tate, Notre Dame
-Flacco needs a young wide receiver for his career. Tate's draft position in this instance seems just right.

26.) Cardinals- TE Jermaine Gresham, Oklahoma
-Like Bradford, Gresham is relying on past performance for his draft status after a senior season hampered with injuries. Cardinals need a lot of help but would be reaching for somebody in the front seven and they have enough projects on the offensive line. Gresham is BPA and Ben Patrick has not really set the world on fire.

27.) Cowboys- OG/OT Mike Iupati, Idaho State
-The Cowboys can afford to wait and develop this kid. Very raw but can definitely be a rock in the trenches if coached correctly.

28.) Chargers- RB Ryan Matthews, Fresno State
-This seems like a pick everybody is betting on. Local kid taken by AJ Smith to replace Tomlinson. All too good to be true but this is exactly where he is projected and fits a glaring need for the Chargers. This seems all too good to be true.

29.) Jets- WR Regus Benn, Illinois
-Jets need a wideout to compliment Edwards. Edwards may be a ticking time-bomb in his tenure so a young wideout seems like an ideal security blanket.

30.) Vikings- DT Terrence Cody, Alabama
-Jimmy Kennedy is not going to fill the void when Pat Williams leave so might as well get the best big-body DT available.

31.) Colts- OT Bruce Campbell, Maryland
-A raw project but I do believe Bill Polian will take an O-Line if not Campbell, a similar case such as Vlad Ducasse.

32.) Saints- DE Carlos Dunlap, Florida
-A solid pass-rusher falls into the Super Bowl champs laps. Him on fast turf is a scary thought for opponents.

Best Players not taken in Round 1:
C Maurice Pouncey, Florida
DE/OLB Jerry Hughes, TCU
DT Brian Price, UCLA
CB Devin McCourty, Rutgers
DT/DE Corey Wooten, Northwestern
RB Jonathan Dwyer, Georgia Tech

The Giants do not need DEs. Well, it's definitely not a NEED position. LB has gaping holes, and needs to be filled.

Only Weatherspoon would be available. We clearly need a player up the middle. I would love McClain but I think Reese would have to leap frog a couple of teams to get him.

I think Dan Williams or even a Brian Price would be a good pick.

I have witness Griffen play in person when he was in HS. BTW he was a two way player, playing rb on O! A true beast but not really the guy the Steelers need. Griffen IS NOT a DT at all and would not be a good fit as a 3-4 DE. Could the Steelers stand him up and have him be the heir apparent to Harrison? Sure but with other pressing needs such as CB, C, ILB, taking a tweener in their system like Griffen does not make much sense.
My pick?
Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State

Honestly though if Griffen falls to them they just might. The Steelers usually believe in drafting the highest ranking person on the board at that time regardless of position and if he falls that far he might be a Steeler.

Straight from The Godfather/Yoda/Ubermensch Rick Gosselin (who consistently has the most accurate mock drafts):

Quote:
The St. Louis Rams owned the second overall selection in each of the last two drafts, and both times passed up a potential franchise quarterback to take a lineman.

The Rams passed up Matt Ryan in 2008 to take Virginia defensive end Chris Long and passed on Mark Sanchez in 2009 to take Baylor offensive tackle Jason Smith.

But Ryan and Sanchez shouldn't take it personal. The Rams don't draft quarterbacks in the first round, regardless of who's available. The last time the Rams took a quarterback in the opening round was 1964, when they selected Bill Munson of Utah.

Look for the Rams to end that 45-year drought in the 2010 draft. They own the first overall selection and Sam Bradford of Oklahoma awaits their call.

St. Louis even paved a path for Bradford by releasing incumbent starter Marc Bulger this month. If you don't have a quarterback in today's NFL, you don't have a chance. Bradford gives the St. Louis faithful hope.

Team ......Player ....Pos............College

1. St. Louis Sam Bradford QB Oklahoma

NFL's 28th-ranked passing offense gets a huge boost

2. Detroit Ndamukong Suh DT Nebraska

Best player in the draft slides to the Lions

3. Tampa Bay Gerald McCoy DT Oklahoma

A defensive tackle in the Warren Sapp mold

4. Washington Russell Okung OT Okla. State

The Redskins need to protect their new quarterback

5. Kansas City Eric Berry S Tennessee

6. Seattle Trent Williams OT Oklahoma

9. Buffalo Bryan Bulaga OT Iowa

Quarterbacks took a beating in 2009 with 46 sacks

10. Jacksonville Brandon Graham DE Michigan

11. Denver Rolando McClain MLB Alabama

Having cut Andra Davis, there's an opening in the middle

12. Miami Earl Thomas S Texas

Gives Dolphins ability to cover Wes Welker in the slot

13. San Francisco Anthony Davis OT Rutgers

49ers need to cut down on their 40 sacks

14. Seattle Ryan Mathews HB Fresno St.

Seahawks rushed for only 7 touchdowns in 2009

15. NY Giants Dan Williams DT Tennessee

Not re-signing Fred Robbins creates an opening

16. Tennessee Jason Pierre-Paul DE S. Florida

Freaky athleticism reminds Titans of Jevon Kearse

17. San Francisco Joe Haden CB Florida

49ers finished 21st in the NFL in pass defense in '09

18. Pittsburgh Kyle Wilson CB Boise State

Steelers corners had only 2 interceptions in 2009

19. Atlanta Maurkice Pouncey C Florida

Can walk in as a starter at either guard or center

20. Houston C.J. Spiller HB Clemson

Texans averaged only 3.5 yards per carry in 2009

21. Cincinnati Jermaine Gresham TE Oklahoma

Carson Palmer needs a safety valve receiver

22. New England Sergio Kindle OLB Texas

Patriots managed only 31 sacks last season

23. Green Bay Jerry Hughes OLB TCU

Packers need a pass-rush complement to Clay Matthews

24. Philadelphia Brian Price DT UCLA

Andy Reid loves drafting linemen

25. Baltimore Dez Bryant WR Okla. State

A good player always seems to slide to the Ravens

26. Arizona Demaryius Thomas WR Ga. Tech

Departure of Anquan Boldin leaves big shoes to fill

27. Dallas Mike Iupati G Idaho

Cowboys need to get younger on the offensive line

28. San Diego Jahvid Best RB Cal

Life without LaDainian Tomlinson begins for Chargers

29. NY Jets Devin McCourty CB Rutgers

Jets need a shutdown corner opposite Darrelle Revis

30. Minnesota Kareem Jackson CB Alabama

To beat Drew Brees, you need depth at cornerback

31. Indianapolis Rodger Saffold G Indiana

AFC champion drafts a walk-in starter

32. New Orleans Sean Weatherspoon OLB Missouri

Losing Scott Fujita in free agency creates an opening
