Just stopping by? Check out the article on the Seahawks picking Russell Okung.
With the seventh overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft... the Cleveland Browns select CB Joe Haden from Florida! This is an unsurprising pick, or at least, as unsurprising as any pick would be for the Browns. They top six are clearly off the board, so Haden is as good as most anyone else in the second tier.
With the eighth overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft... the Oakland Raiders select Rolando McClain, LB from Alabama. Whaaat, they didn't totally screw the pooch? It's a bit early maybe, but a good pick. Maybe they'll trade him for Culpepper or something.
With the ninth overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft... The Buffalo Bills have selected C.J. Spiller, running back from Clemson! A big play maker, something they need, but not as much as an offensive line or quarterback. Interesting...
With the tenth overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft... The Jacksonville Jaguars have selected Tyson Alualu, DT from California. That's a ground-shaker. No one expected that one, especially with quite a few other guys who are better than him out there. I guess they couldn't trade down... Good for us, Morgan, Clausen, Bryant all on the board.
The Denver Broncos are on the clock... They have traded to the San Francisco 49ers. I'm guessing it's for Dan Williams, who Miami would likely take. They gave up a 4th Round pick.
With the 11th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft... the San Francisco 49ers have traded for and selected Anthony Davis, OT from Rutgers. AWESOME! Big potential, sure, but also, huge bust-factor. From Matt McGuire of Walter Football:
49ers take a guy at 11 with absolutely no work ethic or intangibles. Anthony Davis will bust.
With the 12th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft... the Miami Dolphins TRADE to San Diego Chargers! The Chargers select RB Ryan Mathews from Fresno State. What a stupid trade-up, if you ask me... Trading up 16 just is way too much to give up for an RB. Helps the Seahawks though!
With the 13th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft... the Denver Broncos just traded their pick to the Philadelphia Eagles
who are almost certain to select Earl Thomas, a phenomenal safety to take the place of Brian Dawkins (a year late). Spoke too soon, the Eagles selected DE Brandon Graham from Michigan. WOW! Surprising, but it gives us another option... More importantly, all our trade partners are disappearing...
Seahawks are next...
