Holmgren is on-the-clock.
With the 7th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Cleveland Browns select:
Dez Bryant WR Oklahoma State
Analysis: With the trade of Braylon Edwards last season, the Browns are severely limited in big time playmakers who can stretch the field. Mohammad Massaquoi and Bryan Robiskie are promising young recievers, and with the selection of Dez Bryant, the Browns recieving corp will be set for the next 5 years. Now, who will get them the ball?
I left Joseph a PM and he's been on quite a few times since I sent it and posted in other threads so I'm going to go ahead and make the pick so we can keep this moving.
With the 8th pick the Oakland Raiders select Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland.
After his incredible performance at the combine our owner sent out the yearly memo that told us to take the player who had the most freakish combine results and this year Campbell won that contest. At least it is actually a position that we need help with.
It came down to Campbell, Mays, and Pierre-Paul.
Matta = Really good
With the 9th pick in the Redszone NFL Mock Draft the Buffalo Bills select:
Anthony Davis OT Rutgers
Quote from the Bills front office: We would have liked to have latched on to that franchise QB this draft unfortunately none were available. However we feel that Anthony Davis will become a fixture of our offensive line for years to come. He's light on his feet, and has a strong lower body. We feel he is quick enough to handle todays speed rushers off the edge.
If you have a losing record at Reds games, please stop going.
After desparately working the phones for the allotted 10 minutes trying to trade down, Jags GM Gene Smith goes for best player available at a position of need and selects
Georgia Tech DE Derrick Morgan
The Jags considered Pierre-Paul who has more upside but also bust-potential. The Jags can't afford a bust, so they went the safe route.

Hi, I'm Brian Xanders. As GM of the Denver Broncos, my primary job is to receive trade requests from disgruntled players' agents. We managed to get rid of Jay "It's Time to Test My Blood Sugar" Cutler, and at the moment, we're entertaining the idea of trading Brandon "Soon to Be Arrested Again" Marshall, but with Dez Bryant already gone, we're going to do whatever we can to keep him in the fold. Keeping that in mind, we'll look at wide receivers later in the draft.
For our first pick, we considered Joe Haden, who we believe is the best cornerback in the draft. Our secondary isn't getting any younger, and we feel he could blossom into our next Champ Bailey. But as much as we like him, we have bigger needs and think we can worry about our secondary next year.
Our once-elite offensive line could use a little help, but we like our tackles and it's just too early to take an interior lineman at this point in the draft.
To be honest, we're more concerned about how teams ran against us late in the season. In fact, it was flat-out embarrassing, but with the best defensive tackles already taken, we're going to look to improve at another position.
Therefore, with the 11th pick of the 2010 RedsZone NFL Mock Draft, the Denver Broncos select Rolando McClain, inside linebacker, Alabama.
We love McClain's physical style of play and feel he's a perfect fit for our 3-4 defense. Not only that, but this allows us to move Andra Davis back to the outside where he belongs. McClain is athletically gifted (although granted, not an elite athlete), has an incredibly high football IQ, and is extremely coachable. We're getting a great locker room guy who's going to make an impact for us immediately.
Good luck. The only thing that can get in the way of our playoff hopes now is Kyle Orton.
The Denver Broncos
Anyone have a quarterback they don't need? Please?
With as crappy as the Phin's deep guys looked last year, they need to sure up thier passing defense. So with the 12th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins select Taylor Mays, Safety, USC.
The overhaul of the secondary continues. After drafting two corners in the first two rounds last year, the Phin's now grab the jumbo safety from Southern Cal. Mays was the second fastest player at the combine and had an excellent showing overall.
Edit: The link says Taylor Mays Hit, but all at once, so the curse word filter won't let me post a picture, so I had to find another picture.

With the 13th pick of 2010 NFL Draft the San Francisco 49'ers select Trent Willaims, OT, Oklahoma.
The offensive line, especially tackle, was a major area of need. This pick helps address it.
The Seahawks can't pass on Iowa T Brian Bulaga.
A very athletic offensive tackle who has had some trouble with injuries in the past, but he has the ability to play both left and right tackle at the next level. He moves well for his size and has big upside, but too often gets knocked over and doesn’t use his size with good leverage.
It was really hard to pass on Texas S Earl Thomas. As Pete Carroll leaned more towards Thomas. But, he told Paul Allen that either player would be an excellent pick. Paul Allen made the final decision as he thought it best to "attempt" to protect both Hasselbeck and their new franchise Quarterback, Clausen.

The Gints are on-the-clock.
The New York Football Giants select CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson.
Not a huge need but he is too good to pass up and the Giants have been successful with Earth Wind and Fire before Derrick Ward left for Tampa so we are gonna reinvent it.

While we're killing time..... there is next to no interest in Tebow in Jax unless he falls to like the 4th round. A local radio guy not known for his hyperbole says people that know Tebow's agent say that despite a lot of critique, he will not make it out of the first round.
The interested teams are supposedly Cleveland, Washington, Seattle, New England and Oakland. And he said his most likely scenario that had Tebow in first round was Bradford and Claussen gone at picks 1 and 4, and then Seattle taking him with their 2nd first round pick.
There are worst picks (like Mays whom I would hang up the colors for until the day after Al Davis DIES) but Campbell just leaves me shaking my head as Al Davis still doesnt know the games moved away from the genetic freaks to actual football players.
