2010 NFL Mock Draft

The official draft order has been used and the NFL Mocks Big Board was used to reference player rankings.

Pick Team Player Selected Player’s Position Player’s School Analysis
1. Gerald McCoy Defensive Tackle Oklahoma Even though it will be tempting for the Rams to go with the franchise QB (Clausen), the secure route is with McCoy.
2. Ndamukong Suh Defensive Tackle Nebraska
While the Lions biggest need would be an offensive lineman, I see them going with another pressing need, DT. The DT and LT positions are the biggest needs for the Lions going into this year’s draft. With the better performance from the offense in ’09, look for the Lions to draft more for the defensive side.
3. Eric Berry
Safety Tennessee The Buccaneers’ defensive secondary has seen some success with players Aqib Talib and Sabby Piscitelli. Berry can make this good secondary even better. Add to that, Jermaine Phillips’ arrest and domestic battery charge.
4. Jimmy Clausen
Quarterback Notre Dame Jason Campbell is a free agent and Jim Zorn is gone. Mike Shanahan will draft his franchise QB.
5. Russell Okung Offensive Tackle Oklahoma State Branden Albert has not been the answer at left tackle. Drafting Okung will give KC a stud left tackle and allow Albert to move to either right tackle (where he’s a better fit) or guard.
6. C.J. Spiller
Running Back
Ever since the Seahawks lost Shaun Alexander, their running game has been mediocre at best.
7. Charles Brown
Offensive Tackle
Southern Cal
Since the Browns finished their season with four wins, they should give Brady Quinn another shot. But it would be good for the Browns to sure up their offensive line some.
8. Taylor Mays Free Safety Southern Cal
Al Davis, the kook that he is, loves athletic defensive backs. No way does he pass up an athletic freak like Mays.
9. Sam Bradford Quarterback Oklahoma I haven’t been happy with the quarterback position in Buffalo the last couple of years, and I’m not even a Bills fan.
Rolando McClain Linebacker Alabama Denver needs a solid linebacker next to D.J. Williams. Rolando McClain is the best ILB in the draft…Maybe Josh McDaniels should also get his Napoleon Complex checked before he benches his best offensive player on the eve of a game that would have gotten them into the playoffs.
11. Tim Tebow Quarterback Florida
Make note…The Jags owner WANTS Tebow, and rumors have been consistent that he will land in Jacksonville for over a month. David Garrard is an average-at-best quarterback. Tim Tebow needs some work to transition from the college ranks to the NFL. In the meantime, this move will help the Jaguars’ ticket sales.
12. Dez Bryant Wide Receiver Oklahoma State
Chad Henne has shown a lot of promise as a passer for the Dolphins, but he lacks a true No. 1 wide reeciver. Bryant has the size, hands, and explosion to be a No. 1 receiver in the NFL.
13. Trent Williams Offensive Tackle
Oklahoma Improving the offensive line will lead to better performance from the quarterback.


Bruce Campbell Offensive Tackle Maryland Seattle’s left tackle position is in trouble. Walter Jones’ career could be done, and Sean Locklear is more of a right tackle than left.
15. Dan Williams Defensive Tackle Tennessee If Williams is still on the board when it’s time for the Giants to make their pick, you can be sure he will be selected in record time.
Joe Haden Cornerback Florida Joe Haden, touted as the best shutdown CB prospect in three years, is said to resemble the Jet’s Darelle Revis.

  • Balls

    Wow, great mock, looks so different compared to other mocks around the net.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      @ “Balls”:Thank you! We strive to be different.

  • Nards

    “LaDainian Tomlinson had a better year than he’s had in the past few years for a change”

    What the hell are you talking about?

    2009 223 carries 730 yards 3.3 avg 12 tds
    2008 292 carries 1,110 yards 3.8 avg 11 tds
    2007 315 carries 1,474 yards 4.7 avg 15 tds

    So which of these years weren’t as good?

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      @ “Nards” (Seriously?):I bet you were so unsure that you had to look those stats up too, didn’t you?

      Thanks for reading and regurgitating the numbers for me!

  • Cody

    The fact that you called Sabby Piscitelli a success really puts your credibility into question. Sorry.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      I was being generous to Piscitelli when I coupled his name with Talib and said “SOME success,” the operative word being “some.”

      If one player’s name puts my credibility into question, then I can only imagine how many other mock draft writers credibility are also in question.

      Thanks for reading and commenting. NEXT!

  • Ron

    Gotta love how people take opinion, and treat it as if you’re stating fact. I guess if you’re not an ESPN idiot, or one of the tools on NFLN, you’re not credible. Because, you know- Rich Eisen and Mel Kiper have NEVER been wrong.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      @Ron: Very true, sir. Although my head does swell a bit when people take my opinion so seriously!

      Thank you for reading and commenting.

  • PantherFreak

    Looks good Eric. Keep up the good work

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      Will do, PF.

      Thank you for reading and commenting. Please come back!

    I came upon your blog by chance and now I am convinced that divine Providence led me here.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      I am flattered by your comment…Now that you are aware of the site, I hope you become a repeat reader!

      Thanks for reading and commenting!

      Allllright…Happy to amuse you!

  • Shawn

    nice, are you going to do a second round later on?

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      Thank you, Shawn.

      Probably not, as I’ll be making any necessary adjustments to the first round.

  • http://blackandteal.com Terry

    I don’t know why people think Tim Tebow is coming to Jacksonville. He isn’t.

    Any draft site that says he is, is not doing their homework.

    One more time – Tim Tebow is not a first round pick and is not coming to the Jaguars.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      Only reason I can offer is because it’s been rumored for a month, and the owner WANTS him?

  • Nate Trumble

    I could not disagree with you more on the pick of Terrance Cody at 27. Ratliff has redefined the nose tackle position under Wade Phillip’s scheme. You don’t move him back outside, hoping to get the same production out of him, as well as start a lazy, massively obese, rookie with a broken down motor at nose. Mount Cody IS NOT a first round pick. Don’t believe me? Wait til the draft. BTW the pick here is either Wilson or Odrick.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      Thank you for the read and comment, Nate…Try not to get too bent out of shape over a mock draft. It’s always subject to change, nor do I expect everyone to agree with every pick.

  • Regan

    As far as McCoy getting picked before Suh… it’ll never happen

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      I wouldn’t say that, given the injury that Suh has sustained.

  • g tsai

    Good job Eric,
    Any one know anything about the carolina Draft 2010?

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      Since the Panthers aren’t drafting anyone in the first round at this point in time, no.

      Thanks for reading and commenting, G.

  • John from Dallas

    I would be you 1000 bucks that tebow does not go to Jacksonville with their 11th pick. New GM Gene Smith is WAY to bright for that and showed hsi draft savy with last year’s crop. I’m not even sure they would yse a 3rd rounder on TT. They strongly beleive in the BPA approach, so you can rule that option for round 1.
    Insiders just laugh when this rumor comes up and the owner has backtracked big-time now the he knows the drawbacks.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      I wouldn’t take the bet if I had an extra $1,000 laying around. besides, the Commish frowns on gambling.

  • Steve

    Tim Tebow may very well end up with the Jaguars, but he’ll be a second round pick. He will be there if they wait.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      That’s believable, Steve; and more realistic. I’m just kind of getting a feel for my first mock draft, and waiting for the Combine before I make any major changes or adjustments.

      Thank you for reading and commenting.

  • Tim

    OK, Eric tell us what we really want to know. Who do we take in the second round?

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      My hope is that a decent receiver falls from the first to the second round, Tim. Should that happen, I am keeping my fingers crossed for Golden Tate. It’s a stretch, and one that is dependent on his 40-yard time at the Combine, but that’s where my sights are right now. I’ll have a better feel for everything once the Combine has taken place. Until then, minor adjustments to the first round will be made.

      Thanks for reading and commenting, Tim.

    I am impressed.


    I like the Terrance Cody pick for Dallas, I too believe Dallas will snag him. Now Imagine Cody commanding two OL to take him on, which he has been accustomed to, Ratliff @ DE on Spencers side, and Ware Opp side. Who the heck do you double team? I see OL in the next round

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      That sounds good, Beast. I wouldn’t be at all surprised to see Dallas go with a defensive tackle in the first round. I can see Cody being snagged by the ‘Boys if he’s still around by then.

      Thanks for the read and comment!

  • Justin

    I like most of your picks and I think Tebow could very well end up with the jags but not that early

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      I agree with you, Justin. I just haven’t gotten around to adjusting that mock draft. Look for an update soon!

  • George Anderson

    You probably know a lot about football and all, but just by looking at your first 16 I know you are way off. I would rethink team needs and try again.

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      George, thanks for stopping by.

      I have not made any changes to this mock draft since it was originally posted. However, check back later this evening or Saturday, and I’ll have the revised edition up. Thanks for the compliment too, buddy.

      What I know is limited at times–more the financial/contract side–but otherwise I tend to have a pretty good grasp of what matters most.

  • George Anderson

    Hows the revision going?

    • http://www.blogtalkradio.com/blitzradio Eric Quackenbush

      Hi George; it’s complete, though a lot of disagreement again. Mock drafts are a new “animal” to me, as this is only my second one ever. I’m hoping I can catch on with this soon. Give it a look.
