FINAL Mock Draft – April 22

Written by Will Spencer on April 22, 2010


49. San Francisco 49ers (from Carolina)

Dexter McCluster – RB/WR – Mississippi

The 49ers have been looking for an explosive playmaker that can line up in the back field. They didn’t trade for Leon Washington, so they get the next best thing.

50. Kansas City Chiefs (from Atlanta)

Jason Worilds – DE/OLB – Virginia Tech

Kansas City just switched to a 3-4 defense, and they’re seriously lacking an outside pass rush. Worilds is a bit of a reach here, but it’s a huge need.

51. Houston Texans

Toby Gerhart – RB – Stanford

Scouting Report

By passing on Mathews in one, they still get a talented, between the tackles runner to compliment Steve Slaton.

   

52. Pittsburgh Steelers

Brandon Ghee – CB – Wake Forest

Pittsburgh needs to address their secondary and they prefer physical players. Ghee isn’t afraid to play up on the line or come up in run support.

53. New England Patriots

Jonathan Dwyer – RB – Georgia Tech

Scouting Report

Time to finally upgrade the running back position. Dwyer can run between the tackles, something the Pats need.

54. Cincinnati Bengals

Taylor Mays – S – USC

Scouting Report

Cincy was in need of a safety and probably thought of Mays in the first round. Lucky for them, teams are scared away from him and he falls down the board.

55. Philadelphia Eagles

Nate Allen – S – South Florida

Scouting Report

Philly would love to move up into the top of round 1 to get Eric Berry or maybe Earl Thomas, but Nate Allen is still a very solid safety.

56. Green Bay Packers

Vladimir Ducasse – OG – UMass

The Packers grab a versatile offensive lineman that could potentially play tackle, but is more likely a guard. Either way, their offensive line needs help.



57. Baltimore Ravens

Chris Cook – CB – Virginia

Baltimore had to take Bryant in the first round but needs to come away with a corner. Cook is big, physical and talented enough to make a transition to safety down the line.

58. Arizona Cardinals

Daryl Washington – LB – TCU

Scouting Report

The Cardinals need another interior linebacker and Washington is athletic enough to play inside in the 3-4 defense.

59. Dallas Cowboys

Chad Jones – S – LSU

The Cowboys have been looking for a talented safety that can cover and hit. Jones is that guy.

60. Seattle Seahawks (from San Diego)

Carlos Dunlap – DE – Florida

Scouting Report

With the retirement of Patrick Kerney, Seattle needs to add a defensive end. Dunlap has all the talent in the world, but will he use it?

61. New York Jets

Patrick Robinson – CB – Florida State

Rex Ryan loves corners and pass rushers. He grabbed a pass rusher in the first round, so now he takes the speedy cover corner that dropped due to his inconsistency.

62. Minnesota Vikings

Perrish Cox – CB – Oklahoma State

Scouting Report

Minnesota would have love to grab Patrick Robinson here, but Cox is still a nice corner to bring in. Physical and can play special teams.

63. Indianapolis Colts

Geno Atkins – DT – Georgia

Scouting Report

The Colts have needed to address the defensive tackle spot for years. The time is now.

64. New Orleans Saints

Eric Norwood – OLB – South Carolina

Scouting Report

The Saints let Fujita go to Cleveland so they add a play maker to their outside linebacker spot.
