5 Round 2010 Mock Draft

Well, this is a labor of love and a lot of work if ever there was one.  Feel free to excoriate me and tell me how stupid I am in the comments section.  Obviously neither I nor anyone else has much information on who or  how many underclassmen will declare.  This will receiver a major overhaul after the Senior Bowl as some declare, others stay, unexpected stars emerge and old favorites fade.

 

 

FIRST ROUND

1. Cleveland Browns - Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame

I've had people tell me that this won't be Clausen because the Browns will fear taking another Notre Dame QB in round 1. This, of course, makes zero sense. Whether it's Mangini wanting the proverbial "his guy" or a new coach who'll be after the same thing, Clausen with his experience in a pro style offense is the best of this year's bunch.

2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska

Go ahead and chisel this in stone because if Suh is on the board when the Bucs draft (and he almost certainly will be), they are taking him.


3. St. Louis Rams - Jake Locker, QB, Washington

I recently read that Steve Sarkisian made the pitch to Locker to stay another year. While it's true his game could benefit from another season, it's also true that he could potentially be passing up on millions of dollars if he stays because of the very real possibility of a rookie salary cap. We'll see what happens, but for now I'm keeping Locker to the Rams, who desperately need him.

4. Detroit Lions - Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State

Now that Matthew Stafford has not only been knocked around like a pinata, but injured, Detroit will see the need to protect him. I'll give their new, non-Millen regime the benefit of the doubt that they'll do the right thing.

5. Kansas City Chiefs - Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa

Speaking of things getting knocked around, witness Matt Cassell, the Human Pinball. With Okung gone, Bulaga is the ticket here. Eric Berry is also a very, very real possibility.

6. Washington Redskins - Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas

Much like Al Davis, Dan Snyder falls in love with big names with big physical gifts. Mallett has caught everyone's attention this year and with the Jason Campbell experiment likely winding down, it doesn't take a great leap to imagine Snyder drooling over the big, cannon armed Mallett. Mallett is another guy who should probably stay 1 more year in college, but will likely come out for the big bucks. Can't blame him

7. Oakland Raiders - Joe Haden, CB, Florida

The Raiders have the best cover corner in the league. They also have no one behind him. Chris Johnson has spent this season doing an effective impersonation of burnt toast and Stanford Routt is just horrible. Now think about Al and his first round defensive backs. Now consider that Haden can run a 40 time in the low 4.4's without much difficulty. You can write this in as a virtual lock if Haden can run a sub 4.4 at the Combine. Fortunately for Al, Haden has real football talent to go along with his track skills.

8. Buffalo Bills - Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma

Zero run defense. Gerald McCoy is a good run stopper. Mark it.

9. San Francisco 49ers - Eric Berry, S, Tennessee

THE steal of the draft, no question, since Berry is a top 3 talent. 49ers should be thankful for other teams' needs and retardation.

10. Denver Broncos - Cameron Heyward, DE, Ohio State

I know this is way high for Cameron Heyward, but they need a 3-4 end and Heyward is probably the best option. Plus, based on Denver's goofy draft last year, it's pretty clear that we can expect the unexpected from Josh McDaniels  

 

11. Seattle Seahawks - Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland

Seattle is a mess at the tackle position right now and there's really no QB or RB they can justify taking at this spot.

12. New York Jets - Damian Williams, WR, USC

The Jets have some holes on defense to fill, but I can't see them passing up the opportunity to give their young franchise QB a chance to throw to a guy he knows and trusts.

13. San Francisco 49ers - Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma

Now that Alex Smith is at last emerging, the Niners have got to keep him protected so his confidence isn't shattered again.

14. Houston Texans - Donovan Warren, CB, Michigan

I'm really not fond of the Texans secondary. Warren can help in a big way, though a safety like Taylor Mays wouldn't go amiss here either.

15. Tennessee Titans - Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia

Dowling can play corner or safety. Depth and versatility are never bad things.

16. Miami Dolphins - Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee

The Fins need a NT and Williams has had an absolutely brilliant season. Parcells would probably shy away from someone with Cody's issues anyway.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars - Tim Tebow, QB, Florida

If you're into mock drafts, you're already well aware of the logic at work here.

18. Atlanta Falcons - Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech

Among other problems, the Falcons have a pathetic pass rush. Morgan can fix that in a big way.

19. Baltimore Ravens - Brandon LaFell, WR, LSU

Lots of little holes in the Ravens roster, but Joe Flacco needs targets most of all. Always have to put your young franchise QB first.

20. Green Bay Packers - Charles Brown, OT, USC

Green Bay's offensive line has been atrocious this year. This has to be an OT.

21. Pittsburgh Steelers - Taylor Mays, S, USC

If Polamalu's abscence proved anything this year, it's that the Steelers need help at safety. Mays is the biggest athletic freak in the draft, but struggles in pass coverage...not good for a FS. But his talent is too great to ignore and the Steelers need another dominating presence in the defensive backfield if/when Polamalu goes down in 2010. You have to figure Tomlin and LeBeau can coach him up.

22. Dallas Cowboys - Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers

Flozell Adams is a joke and should be out of football.   There's a strong chance this is his last season in Dallas and Jerry Jones like his linemen to be enormous, just like Davis.

23. New York Giants - Travis Lewis, OLB, Oklahoma

The Giants linebackcorps corps is falling apart. Lewis is a great place to start the rebuilding.

24. New England Patriots - Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama

They're still so desperate for help at ILB that they went out and signed 40,000 year old Junior Seau...again. McClain and Jerod Mayo will make the most formidable young inside linebacker duo in the league.

25. Philadelphia Eagles - Mike Iupati, G, Idaho

Philly's had some struggles along the whole offensive line this year, but especially at guard.  Iupati is one of those rare dominant guards worth of a mid-to-late first round pick. 

26. Seattle Seahawks - CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson

Justin Forsett? Julius Jones? What a cruel joke to play on the good people of Seattle. Spiller can do everything.

27. Arizona Cardinals - Jason Fox, OT, Miami

It's shocking how effective Kurt Warner is, given the turnstiles currently occupying the tackle slots in Arizona.

28. Cincinnati Bengals - Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State

The Bengals need receiving help and they've never shown hesitancy on taking a gamble on players who had problems in the past. They're like the Statue of Liberty for troubled players: "Give us your fined, your arrested, your rulebreaking masses yearning to make bank"

29. San Diego Chargers - Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama

A gift from the football gods for the Bolts--A true, elite 3-4 NT falls to 29. AJ Smith will pounce.

30. Minnesota Vikings - Brandon Spikes, ILB, Florida

EJ Henderson's ugly, very serious injury suddenly made ILB depth a top priority on a team with not many other holes. Spikes fills the bill.

31. Indianapolis Colts - Jerry Hughes, OLB, TCU

They need an upgrade at SLB and Hughes fits the Colts mold: fierce competitor on the field, solid citizen off it.

32. New Orleans Saints - Jared Odrick, DT, Penn State

Stick this guy next to Sedrick Ellis and the Saints will have a truly terrifying front four

SECOND ROUND

33. Cleveland Browns - Jahvid Best, RB, California

The Browns are in desperate need of real playmakers on offense, especially in the backfield

34. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Greg Hardy, DE, Mississippi

Having gotten Suh to tend to the interior, the Bucs grab Greg Hardy to upgrade the pass rush off the edge.

35. St. Louis Rams - Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma

Having got their QB of the future, the Rams need some weapons for him to throw to. Gresham's injury causes him to fall out of the first round, but he's too good and too valuable to make it past St. Louis

36. Detroit Lions - Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida State

Their pass defense is just awful. They have got to do something about it.

37. Kansas City Chiefs - Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri

Mike Vrabel isn't getting any younger and Weatherspoon tackles everything in sight.

38. Washington Redskins - Corey Wootton, DE, Northwestern

Philip Daniels will be 37 before the 2010 season. Dan Snyder will drool over  Woottons measurables

39. Oakland Raiders - Gabe Carimi, OT, Wisconsin

For a man of his gargantuan stature, Carimi is extremely athletic, so he'll be on Al's radar. The Raiders are in desperate need of a big, dominant run blocking right tackle.

40. Buffalo Bills - Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma

With Trent Edwards looking to be finishing in Buffalo and Ryan Fitzpatrick almost certainly not the answer, the new regime in Buffalo will want their man. Bradford is too talented to fall farther.

41. Carolina Panthers - Colt McCoy, QB, Texas

Jake Delhomme is a liability and Matt Moore hasn't exactly been tearing up the field.

42. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Golden Tate, WR, Notre Damae

Josh Freeman needs someone to throw to and I truly believe Tate is going to be awesome.

43. Seattle Seahawks - Tony Pike, QB, Cincinnati

Hasselbeck isn't quite done yet, but he's getting there. Pike is the kind of QB that'll need to sit for a year anyway to adapt to the NFL

44. New York Jets - Syd'Quan Thompson, CB, California

The Jets are in desperate need of someone reliable across from Darrelle Revis.

45. San Francisco 49ers - Nate Allen, S, South Florida

The whole 49ers secondary could use an overhaul, really.

46. Houston Texans - Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech

Steve Slaton has been inconsistent and was just placed on injured reserve for the year. The Texans have no real other viable options, so they must address that need here.

47. New England Patriots - Eric Norwood, OLB, South Carolina

Everyone else in the universe is mocking a rush linebacker to the Patriots, and with good reason. They need one.

48. Miami Dolphins - Arrelious Benn, WR, Illinois

They have got to get someone for Chad Henne to throw to. Benn's upside is tremendous and if he pans out, he'll be great value halfway through round 2.


49. New England Patriots - Allen Bailey, DT/DE, Miami

Ty Warren and Jarvis Green haven't exactly set the world on fire this year.

 

50. Kansas City Chiefs - Mike Johnson, G, Alabama

How old is Brian Waters anyway? Pretty damn. Johnson is a great guard.

51. Baltimore Ravens - Brandon Ghee, CB, Wake Forest

Baltimore's CB play has been really inconsistent this year.

52. Green Bay Packers - Perrish Cox, CB, Oklahoma State

Charles Woodson is having an outstanding season, but still isn't getting any younger.

53. Pittsburgh Steelers - Daryl Washington, ILB, TCU

An excellent potential replacement for James Farrior as he approaches the end of his road.

54. Dallas Cowboys - Morgan Burnett, S, Georgia Tech

The safety position could use some tweaking in Big D.

55. New York Giants - Sean Lee, ILB, Penn State

The combination of Clint Sintim, Sean Lee and Travis Lewis could be very, very fearsome once they gel.

56. New England Patriots - Jon Asomoah, G, Illinois

Lots of expiring contracts along the offensive line and Brady must be protected at all costs.

57. Philadelphia Eagles - Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan

The Eagles could use someone better across from Trent Cole.

58. Denver Broncos - Matt Tennant, C, Boston College

Casey Wiegmann is approaching 40.

59. Arizona Cardinals - Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M

The Cardinals could use a replacement for the aging Chike Okeafor.

60. Cincinnati Bengals - Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State

The Bengals could use both secondary depth and a better return man.  Here you go.

61. San Diego Chargers - Terrance Toliver, WR, LSU

With all those expiring receiever contracts, you have to figure the Chargers will be looking for one in the draft. Toliver has the kind of big body (6'4") the Chargers want in their receivers.

62. Minnesota Vikings - Arthur Jones, DT, Syracuse

Jones will be an excellent choice to fill the chinks in the aging Williams Wall. He's a first round talent who only falls because of injury.

63. Indianapolis Colts - Tyson Alualu, DT, California

Another player in the traditional Indy mode, Alualu may the guy who at last solves the problems in the center of their defensive line.

64. New Orleans Saints - Ricky Sapp, OLB, Clemson

Everyone in the world appears to be mocking a linebacker the Saints at some point in the first 3 rounds, so who am I to argue?

 

THIRD ROUND

65. Cleveland Browns - Trevard Lindley, CB, Kentucky

The Browns corner depth is just horrible

66. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Jerome Murphy, CB, South Florida

The Bucs have got to find a replacement for Ronde Barber soon

67. St. Louis Rams - Everson Griffen, DE, USC

Formerly dominant pass rusher Leonard Little is getting long in the tooth and Griffen could be a fine replacement.

68. Detroit Lions - Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford

Kevin Smith needs help. The Lions have to get a real running game to take pressure off Matthew Stafford.

69. Kansas City Chiefs - Mardy Gilyard, WR, Cincinnati

The KC wide receiver corps has been a patchwork and improvised affair all year long.

70. Oakland Raiders - D'Anthony Smith, DT, Louisiana Tech

Let's run through the checklist. Position of need? Check. Runs a sub 5 second 40 at over 300 pounds? Check. Filled with "upside" he may or may not ever fulfill? Check. Welcome to Oakland, D'Anthony.

71. Buffalo Bills - Jeremy Williams, WR, Tulane

Their new QB is going to need more reliable people to throw to.

72. Carolina Panthers - Danario Alexander, WR, Missouri

Wide receivers flying off the board. In Carolina's case, it's necessary, since other than Steve Smith their options are a 5,000 year old Mushin Muhammed and an underperforming Dwayne Jarrett.

73. Chicago Bears - Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU

Welcome to the draft, Chicago. You have a lot of needs. None are greater, however, than tackle because Orlando Pace can't block anybody anymore.

74. Philadelphia Eagles - Anthony Dixon, RB, Mississippi State

With Brian Westbrook ever more injury prone and one more concussion likely to end his career, the Eagles are going to need insurance at running back.

75. Cleveland Browns - Ciron Black, OT, LSU

The Browns could sure use a big, mean runblocking right tackle to bookend Joe Thomas.

76. San Francisco 49ers - Mitch Petrus, G, Arkansas

The 49ers guards have been in and out of Mike Singletary's doghouse all season.

77. Houston Texans - Colin Peek, TE, Alabama

A great blocker and a great weapon for Matt Schaub. He can be the Texans' Jason Witten.

78. Tennessee Titans - Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida

Kyle Vandenbosch's contract is up at the end of the year and who knows if he's coming back.

79.  Miami Dolphins - Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas

The Dolphins are going to need at least one rush linebacker now that Jason Taylor and Joey Porter aren't spring chickens anymore.

80. Jacksonville Jaguars - Roddrick Muckleroy, OLB, Texas

Their linebacking group is seriously underwhelming and they have got to get more pressure on the opposing QB.

81. Atlanta Falcons - TJ Ward, S, Oregon

The whole Atlanta secondary could use overhauling.

82. Baltimore Ravens - Micah Johnson, ILB, Kentucky

With Ray Lewis beginning to wind down, it's never too early for Baltimore to start thinking ILB depth.

83. Green Bay Packers - O'Brien Schofield, OLB, Wisconsin

With Aaron Kampmann likely headed for greener pastures where he can put his hand back in the dirt, Green Bay will be searching for a natural rush linebacker.

84. Pittsburgh Steelers - Ekom Udofia, DT, Stanford

It might be time for Pittsburgh to begin thinking about grooming Casey Hampton's eventual successor.

85. Dallas Cowboys - Pat Angerer, ILB, Iowa

Keith Brooking will turn 35 midway through next season, so it might be time to start getting some ILB depth.

86. New York Giants - Mike Neal, DT, Purdue

The Giants' DTs have been very disappointing this season

87. Oakland Raiders - Brandon Carter, G, Texas Tech

Cooper Carlisle has shown signs of fading dramatically this year. More to the point, have you seen Brandon Carter? He was put on earth to play for the Oakland Raiders.

88. Philadelphia Eagles - Perry Riley, OLB, LSU

The Eagles were so lacking in linebackers that they signed old and busted Jeremiah Trotter.  Riley will be a solid addition on the outside.

89. Denver Broncos - Jordan Shipley, WR, Texas

I think the Broncos need more receiving depth, especially with Brandon Stokely turning 34 before the season starts.

90. Arizona Cardinals - Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama

 Arizona doesn't have much corner depth behind Rodgers-Cromartie and McFadden.

91. Cincinnati Bengals - John Jerry, G, Mississippi

Their lack of depth at guard is worrisome

92. San Diego Chargers - Zane Beadles, OT, Utah

The Chargers have been killed with injuries along their offensive line this year and the backups haven't really played to a high level.

93. Minnesota Vikings - Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers

The Vikings secondary has looked shaky at times this year, especially when Winfield has been out.

94. Indianapolis Colts - Adam Ulatoski, OT, Texas

Protecting the best QB in the league is always a good idea. Selvish Capers will merit a look here as well.

95. New Orleans Saints - Dexter McCluster, WR, Mississippi

Call me crazy, but I think Sean Payton and Drew Brees could come up with all sorts of imaginative, interesting ways to use this explosive, multi-talented player out of Ole Miss. Plus he costs a hell of a lot less than Reggie Bush who I believe is due 8 million this off-season if retained

 

FOURTH ROUND

96. Cleveland Browns - Jermaine Cunningham, OLB, Florida

The Browns need an upgrade across the way from Kamerion Wimbley

97. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Dorin Dickerson, FB, Pittsburgh

The Bucs are so thin at FB they've pressed natural running back Earnest Graham into service this season.  Dickerson is good at catching passes out of the backfield.

98. St Louis Rams - Dezmon Briscoe, WR, Kansas

The depth at WR is just ugly for the Rams

99. Detroit Lions - Jeremy Beal, DE, Oklahoma

Beal is a solid all around DE who can help the Lions get to the opposing QB.

100.  Kansas City Chiefs - Kam Chancellor, S, Virginia Tech

The safety position has been a problem for the Chiefs all year

101. Washington Redskins - Selvish Capers, OT, West Virginia

The 'Skins line has been decimated by injuries

102. Oakland Raiders - Kenny Alfred, C, Washington State

The center position has been a scene of very inconsistent play in Oakland this year.  Samson Satele has not lived up to expectations

103. Buffalo Bills - Anthony McCoy, TE, USC

A nice weapon for any young QB to have is the do-it-all TE.  McCoy fits that bill.

104. Carolina Panthers - Vince Oghobaase, DT, Duke

The Panthers won't have far to seek to get a big presence in the middle of their line

105. Chicago Bears - Naaman Roosevelt, WR, Buffalo

Jay Cutler needs more weapons to work with

106. Seattle Seahawks - Kurt Coleman, S, Ohio State

Seattle could use a better safety to pair with Jordan Babineaux

107. New York Jets - Torrell Troup, DT, Central Florida

Kris Jenkins' injury exposed just how badly the Jets need a reliable player behind him

108. San Franciso 49ers - Javier Arenas, CB, Alabama

49ers keep working on that secondary

109. Houston Texans - Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina

The Texans try to shore up their defensive middle

110. Tennessee Titans - Eric Decker, WR, Minnesota

The Vince Young-to-Kenny Britt connection appears to have real promise, but now that Young has learned to throw, the Titans need to get him more receivers.

110. Miami Dolphins - Jamar Cheney, ILB, Mississippi State

Depth/future replacement for Ayodele and Crowder

111. Jacksonville Jaguars - Ben Tate, RB, Auburn

Someone to pair with MJD

112. Atlanta Falcons - Alterraun Verner, CB, UCLA

Depth/potential starter at a position where the Falcons are thin

113. Baltimore Ravens - Ed Dickson, TE, Oregon

Backup for and eventual successor to Todd Heap

114. Green Bay Packers - Jacoby Ford, WR, Clemson

Small, but very good

115. Pittsburgh Steelers - Montario Hardesty, RB, Tennessee

Rashard Mendenhall has taken over full-time starter duties and I expect Willie Parker to depart to someplace where he can get more playing time.  Hardesty will make a nice complement to Mendenhall.

116. Dallas Cowboys - Jay Ross, DT, East Carolina

Ross can backup and fill in nicely at either 3-4 DE or DT, both of which places feature multiple expiring contracts.

117. New York Giants - Stephan Virgil, CB, Virginia Tech

Corner depth is never, ever a bad idea

118. New England Patriots - Marcus Easley, WR, Connecticut

Targets for Tom Brady are always a good thing!

119. Philadelphia Eagles - Blair White, WR, Michigan State

Would make a nice #3 behind Maclin and Jackson

120. Denver Broncos - Dan LeFevour, QB, Central Michigan

Chris Simms is probably not long for Denver and it might be nice to an insurance policy behind Kyle Orton.  LeFevour could flourish in a Josh McDaniels style offense

 121. Arizona Cardinals - Chris Hall, C, Texas

Arizona's whole line hasn't really played inspired football this year

122. Cincinnati Bengals - Greg Romeus, DE, Pittsburgh

Romeus will be a better player than Geathers or Rucker and who knows if Antwan Odom will ever be the same player after his injury

123. San Diego Chargers - Brandon Deaderick, DE, Alabama

The Chargers were really caught scrambling for solutions at DE earlier this season.  Deaderick would be a perfect fit.

124. Minnesota Vikings - Robert Johnson, S, Utah

Whether or not he sold his soul to play the blues, he can play football and help out in Minnesota.

125. Indianapolis Colts - Dennis Pitta, TE, BYU

A backup/insurance policy for Dallas Clark.

126. New Orleans Saints - Myron Lewis, CB, Vanderbilt

New Orleans' secondary has been so hit by injuries that they were signing guys off the street.

FIFTH ROUND

127. Cleveland Browns - Mick Williams, DT, Pittsburgh

I actually envision him as a 3-4 DE in the NFL, which is why I'm mocking him to the Browns.

128. Cleveland Browns - Barry Church, S, Toledo

Gotta keep trying to upgrade that liability of a defensive backfield

129. St. Louis Rams - A.J. Edds, OLB, Iowa

Strong side or weak side, take your pick....they both need upgraded on the Rams.

130. Detroit Lions - Darrell Stuckey, S, Kansas

Could make an effective safety tandem with Louis Delmas

131.  Kansas City Chiefs - Reggie Carter, ILB, UCLA

Some stiffening for the interior of KC's linebackers

132. Washington Redskins - Charles Scott, RB, LSU

With Clinton Portis less effective every season, the 'Skins have got to start thinking about other options

133. Oakland Raiders - Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, CB, IUP

The Raiders return game has been absolutely woeful this year.  Owusu-Ansah is a dymanic returner and brings depth at the corner position.

134. Buffalo Bills - J.D. Walton, C, Baylor

A much needed boost to the interior of the offensive line

135. Kansas City Chiefs - Kade Weston, DT, Georgia

The Chiefs currently don't have much to plug up the middle of their line.

136. Chicago Bears - Joe Pawelek, ILB, Baylor

Now that Brian Urlacher is having difficultly staying healthy, the Bears need to think about depth behind him

137. Seattle Seahawks - Riley Cooper, WR, Florida

TJ Whosyermomma is still productive by aging.  Deon Branch has underwhelmed. 

138. Cleveland Browns - Freddie Barnes, WR, Bowling Green

For having a lot of receivers, they sure don't have many receievers, if you see what I mean.

139. San Francisco 49ers - Travis Ivey, DT, Maryland

They have zero depth at the nose.

140. Houston Texans - Taylor Price, WR, Ohio

Houston could always use a good hand behind Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter

141. Tennessee Titans - Dexter Davis, OLB, Arizona State

Keith Bulluck will be 33 in the off-season.

142. Miami Dolphins - Keith Toston, RB, Oklahoma State

With Ronnie Brown injury prone and Ricky Wililams aging, Miami needs other options at running back.

143. Jacksonville Jaguars - Chris McGaha, WR, Arizona State

Whoever will be their QB, they're pretty shallow at WR

144. Atlanta Falcons - Rico McCoy, OLB, Tennessee

Mike Peterson has played well, but was always more of a stop gap than anything.

145. Baltimore Ravens - Sergio Render, G, Virginia Tech

Depth pickup, could push for start time

146. Green Bay Packers - Javarris James, RB, Miami

They needed depth at running back so badly, they actually resigned Ahman "Mr. Glass" Green.

147. Pittsburgh Steelers - Sam Young, OT, Notre Dame

With Willie Colon's contract expiring at the end of the season, the Steelers may be in the market for a big runblocker.

148. Detroit Lions - Lamarr Houston, DT, Texas

Their defensive line interior isn't exactly the stoutest in the world.

149. New York Giants - Zolton Mesko, P, Michigan

Jeff Feagles is approaching his mid-40's and will be a free agent at the end of the season anyway.

150. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Kyle Calloway, OT, Iowa

Both of their starting tackles will be free agents at the end of the season

151. St. Louis Rams - Walter Thurmond, CB, Oregon

Excellent skills, but very injury prone.  If he can stay healthy, the Rams will have themselves a steal here.

152. Oakland Raiders - Boris Lee, ILB, Troy

Raiders have expiring linebacker contracts all over the place, and while I think Al will re-sign most of them, taking a guy who tackles as well as Boris Lee in the 5th round is a smart insurance policy.  I also thought about FB Rashawn Jackson out of Virginia here because can't stay healthy and Luke Lawton sucks.

153. Arizona Cardinals - Rashawn Jackson, FB, Virginia

Thought about it for the last pick, decided to go with it here since I looked and Dan Kreider's contract is expiring at the end of the season.

154. Cincinnati Bengals - Earl Mitchell, DT, Arizona

Their depth behind Peko and Johnson isn't terribly inspiring.

155. Houston Texans - Vladimir Ducasse, G, Massachusetts

Texans have some expiring contracts at this position and Vladimir Ducasse is such a cool name, I wanted to work him in somehow

156. Minnesota Vikings - Chris Brown, RB, Oklahoma

Chester Taylor has crossed the magical 30 number and has an expiring contract.  Brown can be the new man who spells the Purple Jesus.

157. Indianapolis Colts - Myron Rolle, S, Florida State

Bob Sanders insurance.

158. Philadelphia Eagles - Boo Robinson, DT, Wake Forest

Depth/insurance/whatever you wanna call it
