Al Fronczak's Final 2010 Mock Draft
(Version 24.0)
04/21

In my final mock, I didn't include any trades for the teams, but I projected the players going to the teams that I believe will take them in the Draft.  For example I have Iowa OT Bryan Bulaga going to the Chiefs at No. 5, not because I think that Bulaga is the fifth-best prospect in the draft, but because I think there's a good chance the Chiefs will move down a bit and land Bulaga with a later pick.  Another example is the Seahawks taking Oklahoma OT Trent Williams with pick No. 14, Williams will never last that long, but I believe the Seahawks and Redskins could pull off a deal in which the Seahawks land Williams since he's their number one tackle on their board.  I also have California HB Jahvid Best sneaking into the latter part of the first round, because he's a potential difference maker that just makes plays every time you turn on the tape.  Forget the concussion issue, I've been told that he's been medically cleared and the rumors that he was still concerned about the concussions that he suffered last season, were erroneous and planted by some team that hopes he would fall to them.  My only regret is not including Georgia Tech WR Demaryious Thomas in my final mock, but I couldn't find a home for him.  Enjoy the Draft! 
                                                                                                                -Al Fronczak

*Scroll down to the bottom of this page for my second round mock*
                                                                                                                                            
1. St. Louis Rams...QB Sam Bradford (Oklahoma)...Sam Bradford appears to be the pick, if his right
shoulder passed an extensive set of tests that the Rams' medical staff put him through at the combine.

2. Detroit Lions...DT Ndamukong Suh (Nebraska)...The Lions acquired LG Rob Sims from the Seahawks, paving the way for the team to take Ndamukong Suh with this pick...Suh reminds Jim Schwartz of Albert Haynesworth who Schwartz coached in Tennessee.

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers...DT Gerald McCoy (Oklahoma)...The Bucs take McCoy over Suh because he's a better fit for the Bucs defensive scheme....*Note - I wouldn't be surprised if the Bucs attempt to deal this pick, IF they can find a trading partner since the team has multiple needs. 

4. Washington Redskins...OT Russell Okung (Oklahoma State)..The Redskins acquired Donovan McNabb from the Eagles and clearly need a LT desperately for their line...The Skins have the pick of the litter at the OT position and take Okung off the board.

5. Kansas City Chiefs...OT Bryan Bulaga (Iowa)...A left tackle to protect Matt Cassel and open holes for their running game is high on the Chiefs priority list...The Chiefs will entertain trade talks for this pick since they have multiple needs to fill and take Bulaga later in the round.  Trade Down

6. Seattle Seahawks...S Eric Berry (Tennessee)...The Seahawks have two picks in the top 14 and would love to come away with a LT with one of the picks...Pete Carroll is a former defensive backs coach and the Seahawks released safety Deon Grant to pave the way for the addition of Berry if he falls here.

7. Cleveland Browns...HB C.J. Spiller (Clemson)...Spiller will give the Browns a dynamic playmaker for the offensive side of the ball...I believe this pick comes down to Spiller or Clausen since Jake Delhomme is only a one-year fix, backup Seneca Wallace is no better than a good west coast backup QB and Eric Berry is already off the board.  Trade Down

8. Oakland Raiders...ILB Rolando McClain (Alabama)...The first surprise of the draft!...The Raiders were lousy against the run last season and the team is looking for a bigger linebacker to plug into the middle of their defense just like they had back in the days with Matt Millen in the middle...McClain fits the bill...Finding a left tackle is also a very high priority for the Raiders going into the draft, but the team has done it's homework and could take an OT with their second-round pick.

9. Buffalo Bills...QB Jimmy Clausen (Notre Dame)...The Bills can't pass up a potential franchise quarterback with this pick, especially since the board hasn't fallen their way and the team needs a new face of the franchise to help generate ticket sales...*Note - Alabama ILB Rolando McClain is the pick if he's still on the board since GM Buddy Nix and head coach Chan Gailey were both present at Alabama's pro day workout back on March 10...If the Bills pass up Clausen here, look for them to explore the possibility of trading back into the round and take Tim Tebow like I pointed out in Mock Version 21.0

10. Jacksonville Jaguars...DE Jason Pierre-Paul (South Florida)...The Jaguars signed DE Aaron Kampman to hopefully fill a need at DE, but he's coming off a serious injury and the team just dealt away another DE in Quinton Groves...*Note-*I expect the Jaguars to have this pick 'for sale' since they don't own a second round pick and owner Wayne Weaver has said that he will consider taking QB Tim Tebow somewhere in this draft.  Trade Down

11. Denver Broncos (From Chicago)...NT Dan Williams (Tennessee)...The Broncos signed NT Jamal Williams in free agency, but with his age and injury history, he can't be counted on to make it through a 16 game schedule...NT is the most important position in the Broncos defense and they now have two Williams at NT for the team.

12. Miami Dolphins...OLB Derrick Morgan (Georgia Tech)...The Dolphins filled a need on the defensive side of the ball with the signing of LB Karlos Dansby, and gave up their second-round pick for WR Brandon Marshall...Without a second-round pick, the Dolphins must make this pick count and take Derrick Morgan to fill the void left by the departure of Jason Taylor...Morgan has the smarts to pickup Mike Nolan's complicated scheme. *Note - Look for the Dolphins to try to move down and re-acquire a second-round pick, if so look for Brandon Graham to be the pick later in the round.

13. San Francisco 49'ers...CB Joe Haden (Florida)...The Niners would like to find a starting tackle in this draft, but Niners' coach Mike Singletary has covered the entire country scouting cornerbacks and Joe Haden is still on the board.

14. Seattle Seahawks (From Denver)...OT Trent Williams (Oklahoma)..The Seahawks made S Eric Berry their first pick and fill their other need at OT with the selection of Williams...*Note - I have Williams going much lower that most because I haven't included trades in my final mock..The Seahawks could have something in the works with the Washington Redskins...*Note - If the Seahawks don't address their need at the LT position in the first round, they could make a play for Ravens OT Jared Gaither in a trade with the Ravens.  Trade Up

15. New York Giants...CB Kyle Wilson (Boise State)..The Giants have a hole in the middle of their defense to fill with the release of Antonio Pierce, but Rolando McClain is already off the board, so the team will likely go with the best player available in CB Kyle Wilson.

16. Tennessee Titans...S Earl Thomas (Texas)...The Titans would like to fill the void at DE left by Kyle Vanden Bosch's departure, but the top DE's on their board are already gone...The Titans signed two CB's during FA and Earl Thomas will further enhance their secondary *Note - Look for the Titans to try to move out of this pick, since they don't own a pick in the second round.  Trade Down

17. San Francisco 49'ers (From Carolina)...OLB Sergio Kindle (Texas)..The Niners took CB Joe Haden with their first pick in the round and add a player that can help the teams defense here...Kindle would be able to provide some much needed heat off the edge for the team.

18. Pittsburgh Steelers...OG/OT Mike Iupati (Idaho)...The Steelers biggest need is to improve their    offensive line, and Iupati can start at guard from day one, and kick out to tackle if needed...The Steelers could also fill their need at cornerback with this pick.

19. Atlanta Falcons...DE Carlos Dunlap (Florida)...The Falcons filled their biggest need in their secondary by signing CB Dunta Robinson, and would like to add another DE in the draft and improve their linebacking core...Dunlap has the ability to be a dominating force for the Falcons line...*Note- The Falcons are candidates to move down in the draft if the prospect they are targeting is off the board, since they don't own a second round pick.  Trade Down

20. Houston Texans...HB Ryan Mathews (Fresno State)...The Texans need serious at the CB position after losing Dunta Robinson, but Mathews is the perfect one-cut HB that the Texans offense has been looking for.

21. Cincinnati Bengals...TE Jermaine Gresham (Oklahoma)..The Bengals have been looking for a TE that can stretch the field and catch the football for a while and Gresham proved in his workout for NFL teams that he's back to being 100%...The Bengals also feel they need to find a DT that can push the pocket for their defense and put some heat on the QB from the middle of their line.

22. New England Patriots...WR Dez Bryant (Oklahoma State)...The Patriots roll the dice on Bryant since their receiving core is getting up there in age...The Pats also have PSU DE Jared Odrick rated high on their board.

23. Green Bay Packers...CB Devin McCourty (Rutgers)...The Packers re-signed both of their tackles, so taking a young OT is no longer their number one priority...McCourty would help bolster a Packers secondary that's getting old and was exploited late in the season.

24. Philadelphia Eagles...S Taylor Mays (USC)...The Eagles filled one of their needs by acquiring DE Darryl Tapp from the Seahawks and take Taylor Mays here for their secondary...With Mays speed, he can be used in multiple ways when the Eagles bring the firezone blitz.

25. Baltimore Ravens...DE Jared Odrick (Penn State)...The Ravens acquired WR Anquan Boldin from the Cardinals to fill one of their needs at the WR position, so the team turns it's attention to the defensive side of the ball with this pick...The Ravens lost Justin Bannan and Dwan Edwards in free agency, and still have a big need at CB.

26. Arizona Cardinals...OLB Brandon Graham (Michigan).....The Cards would like to add another OT (not necessarily a LT since Matt Leinart is a southpaw) and upgrade their linebacking core...Graham would be a great fit for the Cardinals defensive scheme.

27. Dallas Cowboys...OT Anthony Davis (Rutgers)...The Cowboys need to upgrade their offensive line at the OT position since the team released Flozell Adams and Davis is the big mauling type of lineman that the Cowboys like...The fact that the Cowboys couldn't protect Tony Romo in their playoff game against the Vikings has left a bad taste in Jerry Jones mouth during the offseason. *Note - The Cowboys are also looking for a safety and will address that need in the second round...The team could also re-sign Flozell Adams at a reduced rate after the draft.  Trade Up

28. San Diego Chargers...HB Jahvid Best (California)...The Chargers have needs at NT, RT, HB and they need depth at DE...Of all the prospects at those positions, Best will be the highest rated player on their board and would fill a big need for the team.

29. New York Jets...OLB/DE Jerry Hughes (TCU)...The Jets signed Jason Taylor, but how much gas does he have left in his tank?...Hughes is a special pass-rusher with the ability to bring heat off the edge.

30. Minnesota Vikings...OG/OC Maurkice Pouncey (Florida)...Pouncey is one of the best Center prospects to come out of the draft in years and would be asked to play RG to replace Anthony Herrera...the Vikings also need help in their secondary at corner and at the safety position and might need to add another DT since the team is waiting for a decision on the Star Caps case that could sideline both of their DT's for four games next season.

31. Indianapolis Colts...DT Brian Price (UCLA)...The Colts could use some help in their secondary and upgrade their offensive line across the board, but Brian Price would help improve the middle of their defensive line...The Colts could also pluck WR Demayious Thomas off the board here.

32. New Orleans Saints...OLB Sean Weatherspoon (Missouri) ...The Saints have some tweaking to do despite being World Champions...The Saints filled one need by signing DE Alex Brown, and land the top 4-3 OLB prospect in Weatherspoon here.

Prospects that just missed the first round:
WR Golden Tate, WR Demaryious Thomas, OT Roger Saffold, OT Bruce Campbell,
OLB Daryl Washington,  CB Patrick Robinson, CB Kareem Jackson
