FINAL Mock Draft – April 22

Written by Will Spencer on April 22, 2010


33. St. Louis Rams

Arrelious Benn – WR – Illinois

Scouting Report

The Rams have practically nothing at the wide receiver position, so they need to give their new quarterback some tools.

 

34. Detroit Lions

Jahvid Best – RB – California

Scouting Report

Detroit finally has some play makers on both sides of the ball, but need some explosiveness from their running back position.

35. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Golden Tate – WR – Notre Dame

Scouting Report

Tampa let Antonio Bryant leave in free agency and while this team has a lot of needs, they need a reliable target for their young quarterback.

36. Kansas City Chiefs

Rodger Saffold – OT – Indiana

Kansas City passed on the top tackles in the first round, but Saffold should be able to play right tackle for them, keeping Albert on the left side.

37. Philadelphia Eagles

Kareem Jackson – CB – Alabama

Scouting Report

It’s tragic that Jackson falls this far because he has first rounder written all over him. However, Philly doesn’t mind as they now have someone to play opposite Samuel.

38. Cleveland Browns

Colt McCoy – QB – Texas

Scouting Report

Ideal fit for the Browns! Don’t be surprised to see the Browns trade up to grab McCoy in the bottom of round 1. They have the picks to do it.

39. Oakland Raiders

Bruce Campbell – OT – Maryland

Scouting Report

Even Al Davis knows that Campbell isn’t worth a first round pick, but he can’t resist him here.

40. San Diego Chargers (from Seattle)

Terrence Cody – DT – Alabama

Scouting Report

Cody would be an instant starter at NT for the Chargers.






41. Buffalo Bills

Tim Tebow – QB – Florida

Scouting Report

The speculation about Buffalo liking Tebow is true! Just not in the first round…

42. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from Chicago)

Everson Griffen – DE – USC

Scouting Report

Tampa brought in Gerald McCoy in the first round and now they grab a nice edge rusher to go with him.

43. Denver Broncos (from Miami)

Damian Williams – WR – USC

Scouting Report

Letting Marshall go, they need to bring in another wide receiver to keep their offense rolling.

44. New England Patriots (from Jacksonville)

Thaddeus Gibson – DE/OLB – Ohio State

New England is in dire need of an outside edge rusher. Gibson is a bit taller than some of the first round pass rushers, which is something that the Patriots covet.

45. Denver Broncos

Rob Gronkowski – TE – Arizona

Scouting Report

The Broncos continue to fill the holes made through their trades and now they find the replacement for Scheffler.

46. New York Giants

Sean Lee – ILB – Penn State

Scouting Report

The Giants were unable to get their top target, Rolando McClain, in the first round but have to address the inside backer position.

47. New England Patriots (from Tennessee)

Aaron Hernandez – TE – Florida

Scouting Report

New England has only one tight end of their roster, and a field stretcher like Hernandez helps their receiving issues too much to pass up.

48. Carolina Panthers

Lamarr Houston – DT – Texas

Scouting Report

Carolina has to make the most of their picks and they have zero inside pass rush. Houston hits the gaps very quickly.
