Arrowhead Addict 2010 Mock Draft: Version 1.0


Welcome to our first official 2010 Mock Draft. Yes, it’s early but it isn’t like the Chiefs are in the playoffs. This particular Mock is my own opinion and not that of the entire staff. We’ll be bringing you a lot of Draft opinions as the weeks go by. Be sure to check out Andrew’s Mock Monday posts each week as he highlights the players he thinks the Chiefs will go after. Merlin is always ready to talk Draft so check out his opinion on who the Chiefs will take over at Draft Tek.

Pick Team Player Selected Player’s Position Player’s School Analysis
1. rams Ndamukong Suh Defensive Tackle Nebraska

Suh is the best player in the draft. If the Rams pass on him, they deserve to be terrible.

2. lions Eric Berry
Safety Tennessee

Detroit’s defense is awful. Berry will make them much less awful…but still pretty bad.

3. buccaneers Russell Okung Offensive Tackle Oklahoma State

Josh Freeman needs someone to watch his back. Josh, meet Russell.

4. redskins Sam Bradford
Quarterback Oklahoma

Mike Shanahan will not suffer Jason Campbell. The Skins go QB.

5. cheifs Taylor Mays Safety USC

The new regime needs an impact player on defense and they need to make up for the whole Mike Brown debacle. Mays can make an immediate impact not only in pass coverage but in run support as well.

6. seahawks Jimmy Clausen
Quarterback Notre Dame

The Seahawks get to pick again at 14. They can afford to take Clausen here and they will, turning down all trade offers. Seattle gets its QB of the future.

7. browns Colt McCoy
Quarterback
Texas

A reach? Probably. But this whole Derrick Anderson/Brady Quinn thing is over in Cleveland. Mike Holmgren knows better than anyone that you start your franchise with a Quarterback. Cleveland knows there is no way Colt gets through the first round with Oakland and Buffalo right behind him. Trading back isn’t an option so why not take Colt here? The Browns have a billion picks to plug other  holes later.

8. raiders Dez Bryant Wide Receiver
Oklahoma State

Oakland is a Wild Card as always. As of yet, we don’t know who their coach will be. The question is, will Al Davis be able to resist the chance to take Tim Tebow? He does, after all, like flashy players. I think Davis is probably so delusional he sticks with Jamarcus Russel…and drafts another Receiver. Sorry Dez.

9. bills Rolando McClain
Inside Linebacker
Alabama
Remember all those problems Buffalo had with Linebacker injuries? I do too.
10.
(T)
jaguars Gerald McCoy
Defensive Tackle Oklahoma

McCoy may be the best DT in the draft. Teams with QB needs push him back a little, but he won’t fall higher than 10.

10.
(T)
broncos Brandon Spikes
Inside Linebacker
Florida McDaniels won’t forget Jamaal Charles running all over his defense in Week 17. He should try to shore up the D here. Plus Spikes is too good to pass up.
12. dolphins Brandon LaFell
Wide Receiver
LSU Henne needs targets. LaFell should fit in nicely in the Dolphins attack.
13. 49ers Joe Haden
Cornerback Florida

Someone has to cover all those Cardinal receivers twice a year.

14. seahawks C.J. Spiller
Running Back
Clemson
Now that the Seahawks have their QB of the future it is time to fill their RB needs. They luck out as Spiller slips a little.
15. giants Brandon Graham
Defensive End
Michigan

The Giants once feared defense was not so scary last season.

16.
(T)
titans Carlos Dunlap
Defensive End
Florida

Now starts the run on Defensive Ends.

Pick Team Player Selected Player’s Position Player’s School Analysis
16.
(T)
49ers Anthony Davis
Offensive Tackle
Rutgers

A nice pick here to get Davis. The 49ers addressed defense with their first pick and now they turn to offense.

18. steelers Dan Williams
Defensive Tackle
Tennessee

Casey Hampton is going in to free agency, Williams is probably the best 3-4 NT in the draft and Pittsburgh likes to play defense. Done and done.

19.
(T)
falcons Sean Weatherspoon
Outside Linebacker
Missouri

Weatherspoon will fit in nicely in the Cover Two scheme Atlanta runs and will provided much needed help on defense.

19.
(T)
texans Jared Odrick
Defensive Tackle
Penn State

Odrick is too good to pass up here for the Texans. Their defense must improve if they ever hope to stop the Colts.

21. jets Corey Wootton
Defensive End
Northwestern

Wootton would give the Jet’s a nice outside pass rush and Rex Ryan likes his defensive toys.

22. ravens Patrick Robinson
Cornerback Florida State

The Ravens have had a lot of problems in their secondary this season. Robinson should be able to step in right away and help stop them.

23. cardnials Jerry Hughes
Outside Linebacker
TCU

The Cardinals are certainly explosive on offense so adding Hughes would be another piece in their improving defense.

24. bengals
Jermaine Gresham Tight End
Oklahoma

The Bengals need more offensive fire power and with no solid WR options available at 24, Gresham gives them a nice pass catching presence over the middle.

25. patriots Trent Williams
Offensive Tackle
Oklahoma

With no 3-4 Defensive Ends available that wouldn’t be a reach, the Pats opt for protecting Tom Brady instead. Williams can play Tackle or Guard.

26. packers Bryan Bulaga
Offensive Tackle
Iowa

The Pack has got to improve their Offensive Line. I shudder to think what kind of numbers Rodgers will put up when not running for his life.

27. eagles Derrick Morgan
Defensive End
Georgia Tech

Andy Reid will be thrilled Morgan fell to him at 27 and he will used him to shore up the Eagles front.

28. cowboys Charles Brown
Offensive Tackle
USC

Since Cowboy fans are back on again in their on again, off again relationship with Tony Romo, they should be pleased with Charles Brown as his body guard.

29. vikings Ricky Sapp
Defensive End
Clemson

It is hard to find needs on a team like the Vikings. I don’t think they will win it all this year and I think Favre  will come back, giving them another year to put off drafting a QB. I just can’t see them taking Tebow. They go with Sapp and try to turn him into a 3-4 OLB.

30. chargers Sergio Kindle
Outside Linebacker
Texas Look for the Chargers to try to fix one of their few weaknesses by bringing in Kindle to help the defense.
31. saints Jon Asamoah
Offensive Tackle
Illinois

Chiefs fans who have their eye on Asamoah and were hoping to steal him early in the 2nd round will be disappointed when the Saints take him at 31.

32. colts Terrence Cody
Defensive Tackle
Alabama

The Colts get an absolute steal here by nabbing the big Nose Tackle with the last pick in the first round.
