2010 NFL Mock Draft: Round 2

2010 NFL Mock Draft: Round 1

33. St. Louis Rams
Vlad Ducasse, OT, UMass
Hulking guy capable of replacing the now long-gone Orlando Pace. Huge upside, but still pretty raw.

34. Detroit Lions
Jahvid Best, RB, Cal
Best is a great prospect that has some injury issues that are hopefully behind him. Should help AP shoulder the load, but needs to work on pass-protection.
Other options: WR, QB

35. Tampa Bay Bucs
Taylor Mays, S, USC
Mays is a physical safety with decent size and speed that loves to deliver the hit. Needs some coaching in coverage to get rid of the bad habits instilled at USC.

36. Kansas City Chiefs
Chris Cook, CB/S, Virginia
Great size for a DB that is athletic enough to play both CB and S. Could play either right away for the Chiefs.

37. Philadelphia Eagles (WAS)
Jerry Hughes, OLB, TCU
Hughes promises to be a great pass-rushing option at OLB that has the ability to put his hand down and rush in the 4-3 as well. Lots of athleticism, but is still a raw defender..

38. Cleveland Browns
Everson Griffen, DE, USC
Dynamic playmaker that should thrive in a very structured system. Has the size/speed set necessary to play 3-4 OLB, 3-4 DE, and 4-3 DE.

39. Oakland Raiders
Perrish Cox, CB, Oklahoma State
Off-field issues hide a very talented corner with good physicality and coverage skills. Good fit for the Raiders.

40. San Diego Chargers
Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech
The Chargers need a big, bruising back. ADD fiasco or no, Dwyer is their guy.

41. Buffalo Bills
Tim Tebow, QB, Florida.
The Bills seem poised to pick up the former Gator and try and make him an NFL QB. We’ve seen weirder things work.

42. Tampa Bay (CHI)
Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida
The Bucs always need some additional playmakers on the DL. Dunlap has all the skills to develop into that guy.

43. Denver Broncos (MIA)
Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama
Fast-rising prospect that shows all the traits that Baltimore looks for. With Anquan Boldin in the fold, the Ravens can concentrate on their defense.

44. New England (JAX)
Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame
Tate’s routes are the only thing holding him back from being a #1 WR in the NFL. Brady would love to see this guy picked.

45. Denver Broncos
Jason Worilds, DE, Virginia Tech
Very talented when used in the right system. Could have some injury issues that push him down the board.

46. NY Giants
Brian Price, DL, UCLA
The Giants try to collect these athletic DE’s that can set the edge and get after the passer. Price is a great 3-technique prospect, that could transform to a 5-technique.

47. New England (TEN)
Tyson Alualu, Cal, DE
Alualu is a quick, athletic lineman that would fit in well with the Patriots team. He can shift to DT in a sub-package as well.

48. Carolina Panthers
Ricky Sapp, DE, Clemson
Explosive pass-rusher that could help his stock by getting a bit stronger. Very quick first step.

49. San Francisco 49ers
Corey Wootton, DE, Northwestern
Wootten has 1st round ability at the d-line position and the versatility to play both 3-4 and 4-3 DE.

50. Kansas City Chiefs (ATL)
Rob Gronkowski, TE, Arizona
When healthy, this Wildcat is able to get open at will and rack up yardage. Good blocker as well. Back is definitely a concern.

51. Houston Texans
Navorro Bowman, OLB, Penn State
Bowman’s legal trouble is a bit disconcerting, but his ability to fly around and make plays is tough to pass up.

52. Pittsburgh Steelers
Nate Allen, S, USF
Smart player with a great feel for the game. Will instantly help with recognition and communication problems in the defensive backfield.

53. New England Patriots
Jon Asamoah, OG, Illinois
Asamoah is a talented guard that would be able to start on day one for the Patriots, giving the Patriots some much needed long-term security at the position.

54. Cinci Bengals
Montario Hardesty, RB, Tennessee
Great RB prospect that can do it all: run, pass, and block. Has incredibly sure hands, although injuries are a concern.

55. Green Bay Packers
Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida
Great receiving ability and a knack for getting lost from defenders. Can throw a block or two.

56. Philadelphia Eagles
Chad Jones, S, LSU
The Eagles get a very athletic safety that is a true center-fielder. Commitment questions are an issue though.

57. Baltimore Ravens
Damian Williams, WR, USC
Incredibly crisp route-runner with solid hands that will instantly become Joe Flacco’s comfort blanket.

58. Arizona Cardinals
Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
McCoy is just about right to give the other QB’s some competition. He just wins ball games.

59. Dallas Cowboys
Morgan Burnett, S, Georgia Tech
With Ken Hamlin gone, the Cowboys need some help in the secondary. Burnett is just the guy to help them out.

60. Seattle Seahawks
Alex Carrington, DE, Arkansas State
Ideal 5-Tech player that has a quick first step to aid in pass rush. Has the strength to stay stout against the run.

61. NY Jets
Andre Roberts, WR, Citadel
Great route-runner and fearless over the middle. Roberts is arguably the most complete and clean WR prospect this year. Holmes and Edwards are not guys you can count on.

62. Minnesota Vikings
Brandon Spikes, LB, Florida
Concerns about speed will lower Spikes’ stock, but his instincts make up for much of what he lacks in raw speed. Great tackler.

63. Indianapolis Colts
Daryl Washington, LB, TCU
Versatile LB that showed at the Senior Bowl that his size shouldn’t be a cause for concern. Washington could be scary good. The Colts have a lot of potential holes across their LB corps.

64. New Orleans Saints
Jared Veldheer, OL, Hillsdale
Mammoth lineman that has scouts scrambling for tape. Could play tackle or guard for the Saints.

Round 1
Round 3

    Rolle is a late rounder….he’ll quit, because he has options; not to mention his future is with his brain and he’s well aware of head injuries. Also, he’s not that good to begin with.

  2. shimonbentzvi says:

    I think you have Bulaga and Weatherspoon too high. Unless Haden has a great Pro Day , he will also go lower.

  3. dewey says:

    I dont see the pats taking someone like Dunlap in the 1st. He’s got work ethic problems, takes plays off and is really more of a 4-3 DE. I’d rather have us go with someone like Jared Odrick in the 1st or Lamarr Houston in the 2nd. We also should grab an OLB in the first two rounds and grab a decent TE in round 4.

  4. joe says:

    there is no way the bills take a wr with first pick, either bulaga, davis, or trent williams. Also i see them scooping up a nt in 2nd round- cody, or dan williams. Maybe lefevour in 3rd if there. what was i thinking coming to a patriots site for draft advice

  5. Anonymous says:

    You’ve completed lost it…regressed…everyone of these picks is out of the question; especially Dunlap. They will end up with solid system players/starters if they avoid these types of picks. This is a list of players to avoid. I’m talking Pats of course.

  6. Anonymous says:

    Ok there’s a lot of talking and not a lot of thinking going on… We clearly have more needs than picks (I am just talking rounds 1&2 here), so some cost/benefit has to happen here…

    There will be no DBs taken even if they lose Bodden (likely) – Butler is one starter, and between Springs, Wheatley and Wilhite they have to gamble they have enough coverage (which is less urgent if they upgrade the rush … remember hearing ‘team defense’?). They also have 4 safeties so don’t be surprised if they try to make one the nickel (McGowen?).

    Between Mayo, McKenzie and Guyton the inside is covered, outside they definitely need help – prob only 1 as they will gamble TBC and Crable can fill one hole.

    Assuming they keep Wilfork (he wanted to stay, but you have to wonder why they didn’t treat him better earlier…way to go to annoy someone…), if Pryor continues to perform, and Brace makes some improvement, they are set inside (also doubled Richard’s money so they clearly like him).

    Outside Warren is solid, DE is a need esp if Green goes.

    Offense – WR Edelman, Tate and Patten can cover one hole, at least until Welker gets back, and old man Moss the other (a little disrespectful complaining about money when you are the teams highest paid player btw…)

    RB – Belichick likes his platoon…however if ever there was a player that fit the Pats surely its Westbrook…!!! They could retire Faulk, Morris and Taylor, so it wouldn’t even cost that much…

    OL – Belichick always likes to draft OL

    TE – this is the weirdest one, Belichick has a real mantasy for TEs yet doesn’t really use them…?

    So it will be OL/TE, DE, LB, OL/TE. Oh and
    Zoltan Mesko in the fourth.

    Given that who makes most sense…Graham, Asamoah, Hughes & Gronkowski and please please get Westbrook locked down now!!!

  7. Anonymous says:

    The Pats better not waste the first 2-3 picks on an Rb they need de,dl, olb,cb before RB and no way they waste a pick on Tebow. Now dumping Wilfork for a 1 and 2 that would be a good idea even better 2 number 1’s. won’t happen though.

  8. Anonymous says:

    This would be a dream draft for the Pats…I love Pauncey, but he’ll probably be gone, maybe in the 1st, and Williams probably won’t be there at 22.

  9. Anonymous says:

    I like this for the Pats…watch for Pouncy, and if Williams is there they most likely will have to take him, and be happy doing so. Hughes in the 2nd would be a bonus.

    Great job!

  10. Anonymous says:

    Dan Lafevour would be a great pick up at QB for the Vikes at 62. He played great against Michigan St..

  11. Anonymous says:

    I was thinking the same thing last night…Maurkice Pouncey makes a lot of sense to play some G, and be ready to take over at center.

  12. Anonymous says:

    In a later round the pats could pick up Tim Tebow and use him in a widcat formation.

  13. ghost says:

    Until the Patriots upgrade the OL then RB is not a need. Mike Iupati should be their 1st pick.

    On D, we all agree the the front 7 need a major upgrade which can be done in R2.

  14. Anonymous says:

    if the pats could get golden tate or damian williams in the second round they should grab one of them. Moss is not the Moss of 2008.

  15. Anonymous says:

    Sorry, I meant a backfield of Ingram and McCluster would be very dangerous.

  16. Anonymous says:

    As far as RB goes, don’t forget that the Pats have the Raiders pick next year, which is likely to be top 10 (maybe even in the top 5). Look to them to target Mark Ingram from Alabama and go with the RBs that they have for one more year. If they take a RB this year, I think that they’ll take McCluster to be the eventual replacement for Kevin Faulk. The idea of a backfield comprised of Ingram and Faulk sounds like just the thing that would make their Offense very dangerous again. As far as WRs go, I want them to take Mardy Gilyard.

  17. Anonymous says:

    As much as I hate the idea, don’t be surprised if the Pats draft “Mount” Cody in the first (and they may have to trade up to get him) to replace Wilfork. So far, it doesn’t look like they are willing to pay Wilfork (cheap, cheap, cheap) and they would need a solid NT to take over. I like Cody, but they need to stop letting their best players go and using thier draft picks to replace them rather than using the draft picks to improve the team. I would not be surprised if the franchise Vince and pick Cody or pull a sign-and-trade with him. The only bright side of letting Vince go would be that they would probably spend the money on Peppers as they feel that his position is worth more $$$ than NT.

    I would pee my pants with excitement if Clausen fell to #30 with the Vikings, but it isn’t going to happen. Also, I don’t see a TE being on the Vikings radar with Shiancoe having a great season.

  19. Mike J says:

    Bucs fan. DT, yes; DE, no. Tampa has 3 young DEs they want to try to develop on the right side. Also LB, no. They are happy with the way Black & esp. Hayes developed in 2009. Ruud isn’t a big playmaker at mike but is dependable. Tate is a fine pick. The team needs a guard as Sears looks like toast, & a CB to replace Barber.Tampa could use a RB & a safety also.OT & a second wide-out aren’t out of the question. Ten picks will help.

  20. Anonymous says:

    Patrick Robinson will not last until pick 63. Also don’t see Clausen falling to the Vikings at pick 30.

  21. Anonymous says:

    Pats Fan here, you did a great job! I would like the Pats to move up in the 2nd round and get B. Spikes instead of Wootton. I love our 1st round pick, as he gets after the QB. WOW, NE with a REAL pass rush person, there is a GOD!!!!!


  22. Ozstryker says:

    I like this version of the mock draft better. Kindle, Wootton, & Ghee look great. Don’t know enough about Benn to think one way or the other.

  23. Anonymous says:

    As a Redskins fan, I believe you have it the exact way go for their first to rounds although I too believe they will trade back into round three and still get Dan Lefavour later in the second round.

  24. florida ted says:

    after looking at a bunch of mock drafts I think pats will move up in draft to get one of the shut down corners in the draft. DL/LB’s will be available in second round . Good oline will be available all through the draft. at least good enough to sub and play if needed. The more rush you have the better your secondary is little time for qb to throw the less time you need to cover bigger better dbacks…

  25. Anonymous says:

    I think your draft for the Redskins makes the most sense of all the ones I’ve seen. As a fan, I believe they will either grab the Central Michagan QB in round 2 or trade back into the 3rd also, since they don’t have one this year.

  26. Anonymous says:

    I really want to see SUh fall to the bucs they need it.

  27. Anonymous says:

    Good overall draft, but as a rams fan i think that if Claussen does fall t othe 2nd round that they would take him over McCoy just because Claussen has played in an nfl type offense. He would be a better fit than McCoy I believe

  28. Anonymous says:

    I love the Pat’s picks…big professional guard, pass rushing skilled LB’s and a back with great skills to add to offense. Hopefully a WR somewhere in the off season also.

  29. Stephen says:

    If the Lions were smart they would draft a CB early because they cant be giving up those pass plays like they do. Look at QB ratings after they play the Lions, great yardage and percentile.

  30. Anonymous says:

    No way Colt goes that late in the draft.

  31. Anonymous says:

    Ryan Mallett and Jimmy Claussen will each have great careers, the other 3 will not. Mallett won’t come out his year, he will wait a year and be top 10

  32. Gustavo Alkmin says:

    What do you think about Gerhart going to Patriots?

  33. Admin says:

    @FloridaTed – Agree with Toby, have him going to the Chargers, they also value those things. He is a good player.

  34. floridated says:

    remember one name in the draft Toby Gerhart typical patriots player special teams deamon and real banger at running back and smart

  35. florida ted says:

    After the almost comical game against NO coach hoodie had better draft a bunch of d linemen and linebckers there was no rush and linebackers could not cover backs and t-ends. Stop trading first round picks and take a chance..Maroney not the answer either….
