2010 NFL Draft: Round 1 Review

2010 Round 1 Complete NFL Review/Analysis

Round one of this year’s highly anticipated NFL draft is in the books and, while we didn’t see any of the wild trades rumoured to happen, we saw some very interesting picks. Here’s a breakdown of some of the more memorable selections of round one.

I’m leaving out the no-brainer picks; no need to explain why the Chiefs took Eric Berry.

He’s good.

With the 2010 NFL Draft – First round in the books here is a complete rundown.

SAFE BUT SMART

1. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford, QB

Good for the Rams. Sure, Bradford isn’t a can’t-miss prospect a-la-Peyton Manning, but he was far-and-away the best quarterback available. The Rams were smart to avoid the temptation of a Ben Roethlisberger trade, as they’re simply nowhere close to a “win now” team.

7. Cleveland Browns: Joe Haden, CB

Haden was expected to slip as low as 13th – but why? He was the top-rated corner in the draft and the Browns recognized that. Good on them for not getting caught up in the quarterback chase.

8. Oakland Raiders: Rolando McClain, LB

Wha? The Raiders didn’t make a ridiculous pick? Sure, it was a tiny bit early for McClain, but the Raiders finally broke their trend and actually made a safe choice. He’s no DHB; he’ll be a legit NFLer.

REACHES

12. San Diego Chargers: Ryan Matthews, RB

The last several years in the NFL have taught us that you don’t need a high pick to land a top running back. You’d think the Chargers of all teams would know that considering their discovery of Darren Sproles. Instead, they traded up to get a guy who was projected to go no earlier than 20th. Curious.

25. Denver Broncos: Tim Tebow, QB

No Jimmy Clausen but Tebow goes? Wow. I guess his workouts, in which he showed off an improved throwing release, impressed Denver enough to take a chance. You have to love Tebow’s attitude and he’ll eventually have weapons in Eddie Royal and Demaryius Thomas. But we have no idea if he’ll be any better than Brady Quinn or Kyle Orton. I’m not a believer.

STEALS

21. Cincinnati Bengals: Jermaine Gresham, TE

A tight end in the first round? How could that be a steal? Well, based on Gresham’s scouting report, he looks like a physical freak with good hands – a potential Pro Bowl offensive tight end. If Cincy just found the next Antonio Gates, that’s a steal.

23. Green Bay Packers: Bryan Bulaga, OT,

I saw many mock drafts with Bulaga rated as high as No. 4 overall, so it’s no wonder the Packers were so elated to grab rock-solid protection for Aaron Rodgers late in round one. The best part is that he’s a Midwest boy who will fit right in on the Frozen Tundra.
