2010 NFL Mock Draft - Three Rounds

First 3 rounds finished up of the draft this year. No trades involved in this. Took a few unusual routes here to make it more interesting then other mocks out there. Formatting was messed up and couldn't add compensatory picks.

Round 1
1 St Louis Sam Bradford
QB Oklahoma Kyle Boller certainly is not the answer and Mark Bulger is gone. Bradford has really improved his game over the last few months and the Rams can't pass on him
2 Detroit Ndamukong Suh DT Nebraska
Best player in the draft. Helps a D-Line that was one of the worst last year.
3 Tampa Bay
Gerald McCoy
DT Oklahoma Tough to ignore Okung here, but the Bucs need upgrades on defense right now
4 Washington Russel Okung OT Oklahoma St. With trade talks for a LT out of the question now that McNabb is in DC, Skins need to keep him on his feet.
5 Kansas City Eric Berry
Improves their secondary right away with game changing abilities
6 Seattle Trent Williams
Pete Carrol really wants Taylor Mays, but needs to keep Whitehurst on his feet, I guess.
7 Cleveland Earl Thomas
Cleveland just misses on Berry, but still gets a great player with Thomas
8 Oakland Brian Bulaga OT Iowa
Need position and best tackle available
9 Buffalo Jimmy Clausen QB Notre Dame Bills need to move on with Edwards and Fitzpatrick. Clausen is a winner and has tons of experience.
10 Jacksonville Joe Haden
BPA. Future replacement for Mathis and adds great depth in the pass happy AFC South.
11 Denver Sergio Kindle OLB
Texas Too good of a player to pass up. The best OLB for a 3-4 defense in this draft
12 Miami Dan Williams DT
Tennessee Would think about Derrick Morgan here to fill in for Porter, but Williams is a great DT
13 San Fran Kyle Wilson
Boise State
Stock has been rising and he would be a great player to pair with Nate Clements
14 Seattle CJ Spiller
Need a weapon at RB? Spiller is deadly.
15 NY Giants Rolando McClain ILB
Someone has to fill in for the loss of Pierce. McClain is a beast.
16 Tennessee Derrick Morgan
DE Georgia Tech D-Line has lost alot of power. Morgan is a great pass rusher.
17 San Fran Brandon Graham DE
The 49ers defense all of sudden becomes one of the leagues most feared
18 Pittsburgh Mike Iupati OG
This pick is in so many mocks, but it makes perfect sense. Iupati "plays like a Steeler"
19 Atlanta Golden Tate WR
Notre Dame
A great WR for Ryan. LB and DT is definitely an option here, but Tate is going to be a good WR.
20 Houston Taylor Mays S
USC Mays joins Cushing on a very underrated defense.
21 Cincinnati Dez Bryant WR Oklahoma St. Bengals really do not have many needs. With no TO, putting Bryant next to Chad will scare many defenses
22 New England Jared Odrick DE Penn St. NE front 7 is hurting right now and Odrick fixes that.
23 Green Bay Bruce Campbell
OT Best school in the country
Quite possibly the worst O-Line in the league next year. Campbell goes on to play for 15 years and making 16 pro bowls. Yes, 16.
24 Philadelphia Carlos Dunlap
Need someone opposite Trent Cole. Weatherspoon could be a nice option here.
25 Baltimore Terrence Cody NT
Cody and Ngata together for the next 8-10 years. Is that fair to the league?
26 Arizona Sean Weatherspoon
With Dansby gone, Arizona needs to fill that position. Spoon can play any of the LB spots.
27 Dallas Maurkice Pouncey C/OG
Great player to put on the inside of your line.
28 San Diego Brian Price
UCLA Jamal Williams replacement
29 NY Jets Damaryius Thomas WR
Georgia Tech
Rex Ryan gets it right an actually gives his young QB young weapons to make a Superbowl run.
30 Minnesota Devin McCourty CB Rutgers Good option next to Winfield
31 Indianapolis Charles Brown
Seems to be the player Indy really wants. Otah and Brown at tackles is a nice combination.
32 New Orleans Brandon Spikes ILB
USC Maybe a reach here, but is a great replacement for Fujita. Underratd player.

Round 2
33 St Louis Jason Pierre- Paul
Spagnulo starts to put together a strong D-Line like he had with the Giants
34 Detroit Chad Jones SS LSU One of the most underrated DB in the draft. Good player to put next to Delmas.
35 Tampa Bay Arrellious Benn
WR Illinois New toy for Josh Freeman
36 Kansas City Jermaine Gresham TE
Great value here. Bring Tony Gonzales like style to KC.
37 Philidelphia
Ryan Matthews RB
Good compliment to McCoy
38 Cleveland Damian Williams WR USC Robiskie is not a bust, yet. Brings good competition to a young group of WR.
39 Oakland Donald Butler ILB
Kirk Morrison could be leaving. Butler is a thumper.
40 San Diego Johnathon Dwyer
Georgia Tech Good power back to compliment Sproles.
41 Buffalo Roger Saffold
Got to keep Clausen on his feet now.
42 Tampa Bay Daryl Washington OLB TCU Continue to build their defense. Washington is very versitile
43 Miami Everson Griffen DE
USC Parcells loves a strong front 7. Adding Griffen with Willams and their LB makes a very strong front 7.
44 New England Jerry Hughes OLB TCU Continue to improve a weak LB group, especially with Adalius Thomas gone.
45 Denver Brandon LaFell
Don't think Marshall will be in Denver next year, so a new weapon could be an option.
46 NY Giants Morgan Burnett S Georgia Tech Good player to put next to Kenny Phillips.
47 New England Javid Best
RB California Maroney has been a complete failure. Best gives the Patriots a home run hitter which they have never had.
48 Carolina Carlton Mitchell
WR South Florida Steve Smith asked for another guy next to him, Mitchell is a sleeper WR IMO who can take some pressure off of Smith.
49 San Francisco Vladimir Ducasse OT/OG
Opting to not select a OL in the first round, the 49ers get an elite athlete to protect Joe Smith.
50 Kansas City Jermaine Cunningham
Helps their line greatly.
51 Houston Patrick Robinson CB
Florida State
Explosive CB to fill in for the loss of Dunta Robinson.
52 Pittsburgh Kareem Jackson CB Alabama With OL taken care of, Pitt adds depth to a shaky secondary.
53 New England Rob Gronkowski
Arizona Another weapon for Brady and good compliment to Ben Watson.
54 Cincinnati Anthony McCoy
Bengals offense just keeps getting more and more powerful
55 Philadelphia Dominique Franks CB Oklahoma Too good of value here to pass up
56 Green Bay Eric Norwood OLB South Carolina Solidifies maybe the best LB group in the NFL.
57 Baltimore Jordan Shipley WR Texas Perfect slot player, great route runner for Flacco.
58 Arizona Nate Allen
Depth needed after losing Rolle.
59 Dallas Koa Misi
Tough player and adds depth to a strong LB crew.
60 Seattle Rashad Jones
It was hard to pass on Berry in the first round, but Jones could start right away.
61 NY Jets Ricky Sapp
Rex Ryan loves a hybird player.
62 Minnesota Montario Hardesty RB Tennessee Great value here to back up AD.
63 Indianapolis Tyson Alualu
DE/DT California
Relentless player to fill in for the loss of Brock.
64 New Orleans Corey Wooten DT Northwestern
Good back up at DT and will allow LB to move freely

Round 3
65 St. Louis Aaron Hernandez
Florida Finally a weapon for Bradford.
66 Detroit Dexter McCluster
Ole Miss
And you got to worry about Calvin as well? No thanks covering that.
67 Tampa Bay Toby Gerhart
Stanford Derrick Ward hasn't panned out yet and who knows what you will get from Cadillac anymore
68 Kansas City Perrish Cox
Oklahoma St
Desperately need help in the 2ndary
69 Washington X X X Forfeit for pick 2009 Supplemental Draft
70 Oakland Colt McCoy
Poor Colt, his career goes down the drain because of Al Davis
71 Philadelphia T.J. Ward S Oregon DB help definitely needed to keep that defense intact.
72 Cleveland Tim Tebow
Hopefully Cleveless fans don't throw bibles at him instead of beer bottles.
73 Buffalo Cam Thomas NT North Carolina Pairing Thomas with Edwards and Schobel makes a strong D-Line.
74 Miami Taylor Price
Ohio Ginn and Bess are still good WR, Mitchell just adds more to that underrated group.
75 Jacksonville Ciron Black
LSU Helps an O-Line that was killed with injuries last year.
76 Chicago Jared Veldheer OT Hillsdale Tackle that goes unnoticed because of his school, but perfect pick for Da Bears.
77 NY Giants Arthur Jones
Steal at this spot. Great player for a 4-3.
78 Tennessee Donovan Warren CB Michigan Physical CB who could possibly start right away.
79 Carolina Dennis Pitta
Smart TE, would be a good weapon for Matt Moore
80 San Francisco Mike Johnson
G Alabama
Steal here. Right player to breed into a starter.
81 Denver Lamarr Houston
Texas Even though recent DT signing Jamal Williams and Justin Bannan are solid players, they are both 30+ years old. Houston adds great depth.
82 Houston Ben Tate
Auburn Power back to compliment Slaton's speed.
83 Pittsburgh
Darrell Stuckey
Adds depth to a safety position that was hurting last year.
84 Atlanta Chris Cook
Big CB who could possibly play safety.
85 Cincinnati Alex Carrington
DE Arkansas St.
Smart, physical DE who fits Cinci nicely
86 Cleveland Geno Atkins
DT Georgia Back-up in case Rodgers brings a bazooka on a train.
87 Green Bay Akwasi Owusu-Ansah CB Indiana (PA) Sleeper at CB.
88 Philadelphia Sean Lee
Penn State
Injury prone, but a beast when healthy
89 Arizona Amari Spievey CB Iowa If Cromartie ever went down, Spivey would be a serviceable back-up.
90 Arizona Dan LeFevous
Central Michigan Matt Leinhart might not be the answer. LeFevour could.
91 Dallas Major Wright
S Florida
Could replace Hamlin.
92 San Diego Brandon Ghee
Wake Forest Depth for a secondary that lost it's best CB.
93 Cleveland Ed Dickson TE Oregon
A weapon for Tebow
94 Minnesota Matt Tennant
Boston College
Good for an already solid O-Line
95 Indianapolis Javier Arenas CB Alabama This team loves loading up on fast, athletic CB. Arenas is just that


New Orleans

Joe McKnight
USC Great 3rd option behind Thomas and Bell
