NFL 2010 Mock Draft – Round One Draft Picks

2010 NFL Draft Coverage – NFL 2010 Mock Draft

Hey folks — Looking for Online 2010 NFL draft prospects, positional analysis, draft order, sample 2010 NFL mock drafts and more? Keep checking out CappersPicks.com NFL draft pages as we’ll keep you posted on draft activity and the fantasy impact these rookies will have.

The NFL draft moves to primetime for the first time in 2010. The first round will be in PRIMETIME, and takes place on Thursday April 22nd at 7:30 p.m. ET. The NFL Draft second and third rounds are on Friday April 23 at 6 p.m. ET. Rounds Four thru Seven will be held on Saturday April 24th at 10 a.m. ET.

With all that said the 2010 NFL Draft is rapidly coming up on us and our College football handicapping expert Shea Matthews weighs in with his NFL 2010 Mock Draft.

They’re an inexact science to say the least – who saw Darrius Heyward-Bey going before Michael Crabtree last year? – but NFL mock drafts are still fun to try. Here’s my best attempt at predicting the first round for 2010.

1. St. Louis Rams: SAM BRADFORD, QB, Oklahoma

This pick wasn’t a slam dunk a month ago considering Bradford’s injury concerns and rumors of St. Louis trading for a quarterback. But Bradford’s sparkling pro-day workout locked down the top spot for him.

2. Detroit Lions: RUSSELL OKUNG, OT, Oklahoma State

No Ndamukong Suh? Well, with Detroit already bolstering its D-line this offseason, I can’t help but wonder if it did so in order to select a different position in the draft. Okung is a very safe pick at offensive tackle.

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: GERALD MCCOY, DT, Oklahoma

It’s an Oklahoma party so far! Almost every mock draft I’ve read has the Bucs picking McCoy and it makes sense. They want to find their new Warren Sapp to build around.

4. Washington Redskins: BRYAN BULAGA, OT, Iowa

Chris Samuels is retired and Washington has to protect new quarterback Donovan McNabb.

5. Kansas City Chiefs: NDAMUKONG SUH, DT, Nebraska

Am I crazy for thinking Suh could last this long? Either way, along with Glenn Dorsey, Suh could help K.C. assemble its most ferocious defense since the late Derrick Thomas’ heyday.

6. Seattle Seahawks: TRENT WILLIAMS, OT, Oklahoma

Here’s another player who goes to the same team in almost every mock draft out there. That just shows how desperately the Seahawks’ O-line needs help. Williams fits Seattle’s scheme (zone blocking).

7. Cleveland Browns: ERIC BERRY, FS, Tennessee

This pick excites me. Cleveland acquired Sheldon Brown already and now adds a gamebreaker to the secondary with Berry. Thinks are looking up in the Dawg Pound.

8. Oakland Raiders: BRUCE CAMPBELL, OT, Maryland

Oh-so tempting to have the Raiders pick Tebow here, as it would be such an Al Davis move. But I see the Raiders going for the high-upside tackle this time.

9. Buffalo Bills: TIM TEBOW, QB, Florida

Insanity! But the Bills franchise is in a state of desperation and needs to generate excitement, even if Tebow isn’t a great fit. At least he can rally the troops, unlike Trent Edwards. Bet on Football at Sportsbook.com

10. Jacksonville Jaguars: JIMMY CLAUSEN, QB, Notre Dame

The Bills grab the Florida boy but the Jags will be better off for it. They get Clausen and suddenly have a bright offensive future considering that Maurice Jones-Drew only has one season as a starter under his belt.

11. Denver Broncos: MIKE LUPATI, G, Idaho

I like the theory that the run on tackles will let an outstanding guard like Lupati fall to Denver and help them improve their rushing offense.

12. Miami Dolphins: DEZ BRYANT, WR, Oklahoma State

The ugly 40-time pushed Dez Bryant away from combine-obsessed teams like Oakland and Miami will reap the rewards. Bryant will make people forget about Ted Ginn Jr. in a hurry.

13. San Francisco 49ers: JOE HADEN, CB, FLORIDA

The 49ers can still be passed on (sorry, Nate Clements) and Haden is the best corner in this draft.

14. Seattle Seahawks: C.J. SPILLIER, RB, Clemson

I’m not convinced that Justin Forsett is the long-term answer and Seattle can really up the ante in its running game by pairing Spiller with the Trent Williams pick at No. 6.

15. New York Giants: ROLANDO MCCLAIN, MLB, Alabama

This pick make makes a ton of sense with the Giants losing Antonio Pierce. He could be the future leader of this defense.

16. Tennessee Titans: DERRICK MORGAN, DE, Georgia Tech

After losing Albert Haynesworth and Kyle Vanden Bosch in consecutive offseasons, Tennessee clearly needs D-line help. Morgan falls into the Titans’ lap because of the O-lineman lust earlier in the draft.

17. San Francisco 49ers: EARL THOMAS, FS, Texas
18. Pittsburgh Steelers: MAURKICE POUNCEY, C, Florida
19. Atlanta Falcons: BRANDON GRAHAM, DE, Michigan
20. Houston Texans: KYLE WILSON, CB, Boise State
21. Cincinnati Bengals: ANTHONY DAVIS, OT, Rutgers
22. New England Patriots: DAN WILLIAMS, DT, Tennessee
23. Green Bay Packers: CHARLES BROWN, OT, USC
24. Philadelphia Eagles: JASON PIERRE-PAUL, DE, Florida
25. Baltimore Ravens: TERRENCE CODY, DT, Alabama
26. Arizona Cardinals: SERGIO KINDLE, OLB, Texas
27. Dallas Cowboys: TAYLOR MAYS, S, USC
28. San Diego Charger: JONATHAN DWYER, RB, Georgia Tech
29. New York Jets: DEMARYIUS THOMAS, WR, Georgia Tech
30. Minnesota Vikings: KAREEM JACKSON, CB, Alabama
31. Indianapolis Colts: RODGER SAFFOLD, OL, Indiana
32. New Orleans Saints: JERRY HUGHES, DE, TCU
