2010 NFL Mock Draft – Black and Teal Version 1.0

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

The Jaguars are committed to Best Available Player regardless of need. In this draft, the 11th position shows the absolute top players dwindle quickly.  Gene Smith makes a smart call, but will the fans agree? Do you agree?  Let us know!

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

The Rams added the likes of Adam Carriker and Chris Long along the defensive line in recent years. By adding Suh, the best player in the draft, St. Louis adds quality depth to their d-line and Carriker could bump out to left end.

2. Gerald McCoy Defensive Tackle Oklahoma
Gerald McCoy is yet another difference maker in this draft class. He would bring star power to the Lions defensive line. McCoy is well-rounded and would improve the Lions rush defense as well as create pressure up the middle.
3. Eric Berry Safety Tennessee Berry has drawn many comparisons to Ravens safety Ed Reed. He is a ballhawk who is not afraid of contact. The Bucs would prefer either McCoy or Suh fall to them, but in this scenario Berry is a great consolation prize.
4. Jimmy Clausen Quarterback Notre Dame Mike Shanahan is the new sherrif in town and he will likely be looking for his own signal-caller. Even before Shanahan, the Redskins seemed to look at every possible move that would rid them of Jason Campbell. Campbell will likely not be back in Washington and the ‘Skins hope Clausen can be the answer.
5. Russell Okung Offensive Tackle Oklahoma State Matt Cassell was never able to return to his 2009 form mainly due to the Chiefs atrocious pass protection which ranked near the bottom of the league. Adding Okung would allow KC to switch Branden Albert to either right tackle or his natural guard position.
6. Derrick Morgan
Defensive End
Georgia Tech
Seattle has one of the worst pass rushes in the entire league and Derrick Morgan is a dynamic pass rusher who could help turn around the Seahawks D. Quarterback is also a possibility, but at this point Bradford may be too much of a reach.
7. Sam Bradford

Mike Holmgren is a Quarterback developer and he needs raw talent to work with. Sam Bradford is the guy for Mike to start with IMO. 
8. Bryan Bulaga Offensive Tackle Iowa
Protect the Quarterback. Al Davis is still in love with his QB and any IOWA O-Lineman is a good addition.
9.   Joe Haden Cornerback Florida Joe Haden is the only premier corner in this draft. Haden will boost the Bills secondary and help start the defensive turnaround. This team still has a long way to go but Haden and Byrd make a nice duo.
Dez Bryant Wide Receiver Oklahoma State All signs point to Brandon Marshall being traded this offseason which would leave Denver with a big hole to fill at wide receiver. Dez Bryant has drawn comparisons to Terrell Owens — like Marshall. Bryant is the best receiver in this class and he would be a perfect fit to replace Marshall. Eddie Royal also compliments Bryant extremely well.
11. Rolando McClain Linebacker Alabama McClain can play all three linebacker positions and he would add to an already impressive set of Jaguar Linebackers. McClain would add a solid tackler to the edge of the defense which is currently held by Clint Ingram. Ingram could be gone and having a guy like McClain on the depth chart could prove to be a good decision.
12. Sergio Kindle Outside Linebacker Texas Joey Porter is unhappy with his role in Miami last year and he has expressed interest in leaving the team. The key to any 3-4 defense is the linebacker position. Kindle is a hybrid DE/OLB, and fits in well with Bill Parcells scheme.
13. Anthony Davis Offensive Tackle
Rutgers Frank Gore is a superstar and the 49ers can be successful if they pound the rock with him on a consistent basis. One way to ensure that is improving the offensive line. Joe Staley is doing a good job at left tackle, so adding a guy like Anthony Davis to play the other side could hold down the ends of this line for years to come.
14. (DEN) Taylor Mays Safety USC Mays is a big-time hitter at the safety position and he would bring a new attitude to the defense that new head coach and former USC coach Pete Carroll is all too familiar with. Mays also grew up in the Seattle area and he would be welcomed by the fans.
15. Jason Pierre-Paul Defensive End South Florida The Giants big time defense suffered this season. Drafting to the defensive line is a trait the Giants always do well and selects JPP, who is a raw, pass-rushing specialist.
C.J. Spiller Running Back Clemson With San Francisco securing the offensive line with their first of two first-round selections, they can afford to play around a bit with their second pick. Spiller is an explosive back that could bring an element much like Felix Jones brought to the Cowboys to San Francisco.

    I think tis is a better mock draft that I usally reading in the net. McClain-yeah we must start the point that if nothing crazy happens he will be the guy. I’M OK with the whole mock-exept I think Iupati might goes a bit earlier then27. Odrick for Indy-Scary….Brian Price for the Texans-scary II…

  • Mike J

    The Jags need a pass-rusher–again. 14 sacks in 2009.I think Morgan is Harvey pt.2, & Pierre-Paul will be gone. Carlos Dunlap is my guess.He will wow at the Combine.
    McClain is my early choice for ROY. I think he can play outside at the next level & develop into a good, not great, pass-rusher, & he will be dynamite in other phases of the game.I wouldn’t take him top 5, but top 10, fine.So, Jacksonville may have to move up a bit to get him.
    Not a Jags fan BTW; this is objective opinion.

  • BlueFalcon

    I laughed when you said already impressive set of linebackers. Our lbers are average.

  • Bryan

    Living near DC right now I honestly say the odds of the Skins drafting a QB is slim. The Skins O-Line is the worst in the league they’re gonna draft O-Line help before they even think about drafting a QB.

    Besides most people think Campbell isn’t a bad QB he just has no line.

    I’d have Clausen falling to the Skins, Tebow going to the Raiders, Bradford falling to the Jags – Jags trade down to Vikes/Cards

  • zoltanfrombudapest

    To Mike J- None of the DEs in the 1st round worth a 10-11th pick right now…
    Look out for 3rd-4th round prospect Austen Lane from Murray State- I think he is the guy the Jaguars want-Small school; later round pick; I think Gene will target him in the draft.

    To BlueFalcon: THeLBs are the best unit of the defene. Who was the best D player in 2009? Daryl Smith. Justin Durant is one of the most underrated player in the NFL-he had concussion-so he couldn’t played in every game…Ingram was a disapointment in his contract year- I think he woill go via trade (he is an RFA) Russell Allen is a good pickup; the best UDFA rookie for the Jags (and there was 3-4 player who played mor or less) and played well. And Brian Iwuh-he is a favourite of Terry’s(tkopa) because he can hit people. The Jags LB are fine. With McClain in the lineup (And under LB specialist HC Jack Del Rio) WATCH OUT!!!!

    There should be 3 main players the jaguars should see if they get. And if they don’t get them, then they should trade back and get additional picks. I don’t like Dunlap, because he seems like another bust. He has character questions and effort problems. The only Gators I really like are Haden(round 1) and Hernandez in maybe the third round(Jags don’t have 2nd). Cunningham would be nice in later rounds as well. The other two pick, aside from Haden, are Spiller(BAP type of move–couldn’t hurt), and Morgan perhaps…I’m still not bought on Morgan, though. Pass rushers are tricky to figure out, and can make you waste a lot of money. Just hoping, because New England probably won’t do..but we could trade back to their spot, get their 1st rounder, and get 2 of 3 of their 2nd rounders. I would love to get Jeremy Beal(DE from OK) in later rounds, because he can straight up play, and has good stats to prove it. I don’t see them drafting a QB, because they will give Garrard one more chance

  • JagSoldier

    I think dont think that Garrards’ job is in any serious jeopardy even if they draft a QB. There isnt a QB in the draft in my opinion who will be ready to start in week 1. Garrard has two more years and then he will either be moved or dropped back to the 2nd string role. IMOP

  • JagSoldier

    Almost forgot! I like the pick here. The Jags have some pretty good LBs but none of them are elite. Mcclain plus Durant, Russel, Iwuh, and Smith would be a great group to have.

  • zoltanfrombudapest

    To Jon (JagSoldier)-I can just agree with you in both points. I starting to REALLY LIKE McClain. Soon yoou will read about it why…

  • zoltanfrombudapest

    The article is noted by Paul Kuharsky!!!!

  • Mike J

    Zoltan, you are wrong. Pierre-Paul is already flying up boards according to Charley Casserly.”PFW” mocks him at #3 over-all.Dunap & he are physical marvels. Teams want pass-rushers, even potential ones, like crazy.

  • zoltanfrombudapest

    I saw no passrushers that makes me wow… And by the way (Although I still have some patience on him) looks wha everyone thought about Harvey; and how he turned out.
    And look at Dumervill and Jared Allen-they were the sackmasters-none of them was a 1-2 round pick…

  • bob

    Your 1st Round pick for the Bills is never, ever going to happen. The best area on the entire team is defensive backfield. They led the league in INTs most of the year with Byrd leading the way with an NFL best 9. Also, Byrd is a safety, not a CB so he would not be “paired with” Harper. Get to know a little bit more about teams before making such a ridiculous statement. The Bills need a QB and O-Line help. If either Clausen or Bradford drop to them (not likely) they will take them. If not, I will look for them to take the Rutgers OT – Davis. The only way they do not take OT is if someone like McCoy drops.

  • bob

    Sorry about the mistake above. I meant Haden, not Harper.

  • TigerJ

    I happened across this mock when I was looking at a bunch of them. I’m a Bills fan. Sorry to burst your bubble, but there is no freaking way Buffalo picks a CB. Secondary is the strongest area of their defense. Leodis McKelvin comes back from IR. They got a strong year out of Drayton Florence, and they have a bunch of capable CBs on the team. If a good left tackle drops that might be their pick, but in your mock Bulaga and Okung are gone. Davis is athletic but there are attitude questions and Trent Williams is probably not worth the risk as a left tackle prospect here. They are switching to a 3-4 defense and could use a big defensive end, but the only candidate in round one, Derrick Morgan is gone (Carlos Dunlap is too much of a risk. There is no nose tackle worth #9 overall. Buffalo does however need a big athletic linebacker to plug in with Posluzny on the inside. Yeah, in the scenario you’ve constructed in the first 8 picks, the most likely selection by Buffalo would be Rolando McClain. So, does Jacksonville need a cornerback?

    I hope you realize holmgren the president not the coach. Also heckert the gm not holmgren.

  • Danglysack

    at least you dont have Tebow in round one like the guy from Cat Crave….what an idiot.
