With the 9th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, The Buffalo Bills select.... Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma!
UZ Says: "Seriously, this is just incredible. I can't fathom how little faith everyone else has in the QB's available this season.
Not only that, but I'm about 99% sure this is not going to happen in real life, with the way I've seen NFL scouts drooling all over him since his pro day. If St. Louis doesn't take him with the first pick I doubt he makes it past Seattle, Cleveland and Oakland. (I don't actually think any of them will take a QB, but there's a good chance at least one will bite if a prospect as hot as Sam drops to them.) As much as I hate picking the same guy two of these mock drafts in a row, you guys really left me no choice. The golden rule of the draft is that if you have a chance to pick up a franchise Quarterback, you do not decline said chance. I really prefer Jimmy Clausen to Bradford but with him gone I have to go with who I consider the second best prospect in this draft. Bradford's injury history concerns me but if he gets a year on the bench to get coached up and learn the NFL ropes as it were, I think he's got the potential to be an NFL superstar.
Him not being NFL ready might actually work in favor of Bradford if by some miracle he ends up on the Bills, actually. The offensive line right now is young, talented on the inside and shaky. If the Bills can fix their LT situation this season, Bradford has a chance to start playing with what I think will turn into a fantastic O-line. Naturally, this would require the Bills to not have 5 injuries per game this season... a man can dream."
With the 10th pick in the 2010 NFL draft the Jacksonville Jaguars
select Joe Haden, CB Florida!
RWS591 Says: "Pure and simple BPA right here. GM Gene Smith has made it clear he will be sticking to his guns and going off his big board. The only time he may stray from this is if the Jags pick up a 2nd and the order comes from the owner to squeeze the trigger on Teeeeebow. Haden is clearly the best player at this pick. The only other player I even considered was Dan Williams, but the facts that he is more suited for the NT position when the Jags really need a penetrating DT and more importantly that I don’t think he is the same quality of prospect that Haden is caused me to go with the Florida Corner. The concerns with Haden are that he is simply another Florida system player, much like our own Reggie Nelson, but his consistent play suggests otherwise. He is also not as dumb as a rock like the aforementioned player. His speed was a nonfactor even without his pro-day, because quite simply no one, other than Spikes, in a Gator uniform is slow.
Picking Haden gives the Jags a number of options. Hopefully he’ll be able to start day one and live up the "Revis-like" badge many have placed on his chest. If not, then he could play NB until he grows into the corner position. If the Jags are confident that Haden can start day one, then there are two options with Mathis. He could either move to FS, a position he may be more suited for and was initially drafted for, or he could be traded for more picks. GM Gene has made it clear that he wants to and plans on trading down for more picks, something that I could not do.
If the Jaguars cannot trade down and the draft falls something like this, then I suspect that Haden will be the pick. Come the 22nd look for the Jags to either trade down or select the BPA whether it is a position of need or not."
With the 11th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, The Denver Broncos select
Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida!
Skotty Says- "Okay i know what your saying,"A center at 11?". Well if we could trade i would trade back and select pouncey, but since we cant i'll take him here. Pouncey is one of the better Center prospects to come out in awhile, and has to atop Denver's Draft Board. He will fill a huge need along our line. Our o-line did not look good last year. Coach McDaniels is looking for bigger stronger players who fit his power blocking scheme, and pouncey is that guy. And i know alot of bronco fans who would be happy with pouncey at 11. I did think about Dex Bryant with the possible trade of Brandon Marshall. If Denver got another 1st rounder out of that i may of gone Dez Bryant or Dan Williams or Jared Ordick with that selection. But all in all im happy with Pouncey. He fits a huge need and will Anchor Denvers O-line for years to come."
With the 12th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft,The Miami Dolphins select.... Earl (The Pearl) Thomas, FS, Texas!
JP Says: More than likely the Fins will try to trade out of the 12th overall pick in hopes to add more draft picks and take either Dez Bryant or a rush linebacker without having to reach (Yes, I did say reach for Dez Bryant). But in the event that they are unable to find a trade partner, I believe they will go with the best player available. Earl Thomas not only is the best player available, but he also fills one of Miami's biggest needs at the free safety position. Miami is in dire need of playmakers on both sides field. Thomas should be able to start immediately in our secondary and be a huge much needed playmaker for the Fins for years to come. He, Vontae Davis, and Sean Smith would give the Dolphins one of the best, if not the best young secondaries in all the NFL for the next 4-8 years. Add Pro Bowl safety Yeremiah Bell and a healthy Will Allen to the mix and you have one of the top secondaries this upcoming season. He is indeed the safe pick under this situation.
