After looking at the excellent mocks by Matt and Rob, I decided I should do a first-round mock as well. It should be noted that while I generally get a decent feel for the Seahawks by the time draft day approaches, this early in the year I'm going to be wildly off on all of my picks.
In general I try to base my mock drafts off of what I think the team will do. Since Seattle has not figured out who will be making their decisions for 2010, I'm instead going to go off of what I would do if I were Seattle. The rest of the teams are my attempts at predicting what each team front office will do.
Kyle's 2010 Mock Draft:
#1 Cleveland - Ndamukong Suh (DT, Nebraska)
#2 St Louis - Gerald McCoy (DT, Oklahoma)
#3 Tampa Bay - Dez Bryant (WR, Oklahoma state)
#4 Detroit - Anthony Davis (OT, Rutgers)
#5 Washington - Sam Bradford (QB, Oklahoma)
Suh is largely accepted as the #1 prospect and Cleveland needs him. St. Louis already has a high pick at McCoy's spot (Adam Carriker), but McCoy presents obvious value and Carriker hasn't performed. Tampa continues to lack that big-time WR, and Bryant could be that presence for promising QB Josh Freeman. Davis fits Detroit's philosophy (and I think he'll rise post-combine) and Sam Bradford barely edges out Jake Locker, as Washington needs a QB who can start immediately.
#6 Kansas City - Dan Williams (DT, Tennessee)
#7 Buffalo - Russell Okung (LT, Oklahoma State)
#8 Oakland - Jake Locker (QB, Washington)
#9 Seattle - Joe Haden (CB, Florida)
#10 Denver - Rolando McClain (LB, Alabama)
Kansas City gets put in a tough spot, as they have many of the pieces (Brandon Albert, Tyson Jackson, Brandon Flowers, etc.) but have to support those pieces and wait for them to mature. Ideally they'd pick a quarterback, but Cassell's contract prohibits them from giving up on him this early. Williams could see his stock rise as Monte Kiffin's connections come through, and he fits the role of a 3-4 NT quite well.
Buffalo is a complete wildcard here, they could go Quarterback but until they figure out their coaching situation I don't want to draft a system-specific player for them. Okung is high on a lot of boards (not mine, though I haven't yet scouted him as a senior) and makes some sense here. Locker is a quintessential Raiders pick and while he isn't ready to start, I don't expect that to stop Al Davis. Rolando McClain is one of my favorite players in the draft, and would be my pick if Seattle was planning to switch to a 3-4. Denver gets a steal.
Seattle doesn't do poorly here, either. While I generally would not pick a player I haven't scouted, I keep hearing awesome things about Haden's physical talents... and talent is a lot of the cornerback position. With Marcus Trufant hurt and playing pretty poorly, there isn't a lot of long-term security here. Cornerbacks are like WRs... you never have too many in this day and age.
#11 San Francisco - Trent Williams (OL, Oklahoma)
#12 Houston - Derrick Morgan (DE, Georgia Tech)
#13 San Francisco - CJ Spiller (RB, Clemson)
#14 Tennessee - Sean Weatherspoon (LB, Missouri)
#15 Pittsburgh - Mike Iupati (OG, Idaho)
Trent Williams is too good of a run-blocker to fall much farther, and his troubles sliding his feet would be mitigated at SF as he could be a guard for a while. Houston really only has Mario Williams as a pass-rusher on the DL, and even though I really like Connor Barwin I don't see them passing up Morgan's versatility. San Fran again presents a tough choice, and even though they love Frank Gore, I think CJ Spiller could be a possibility here. The 49ers seem confused as to whether or not they're smashmouth or spread on offense, and this way they can be both. If I felt any of the "pass-rushing" OLBs were worth it, I'd go there, but Ricky Sapp (Clemson) and Sergio Kindle (Texas) have thoroughly disappointed me. Tennessee's defense went from great to awful in a year, and while they really need to address Haynesworth's departure, I don't see a tackle capable of doing that for them, so they'll add some youth, athleticism, and production to their decent LB group. While it pains me to give Pittsburg Mike Iupati, who I feel will be a stud, it seems very possible at pick # 15.
#16 Atlanta - Jason Pierre-Paul (DE, USF)
#17 NY Jets - Damian Williams (WR, USC)
#18 Baltimore - Brandon LaFell (WR, LSU)
#19 Miami - Brandon Spikes (LB, Florida)
#20 Jacksonville - Jimmy Clausen (QB, Notre Dame)
I largely agree with Rob's choices at #16 and #17. It wouldn't surprise me if LaFell went way earlier, but he'd be a great choice here for Baltimore, who desperately needs WR help. Spikes gives Miami a tough leader for their defense, and though I love Channing Crowder I hear that the Miami FO does not. I could not in good conscience have Jacksonville take Tebow, but then I believe he will kill his stock at the senior bowl when coaches get to see him outside Florida's offense. The opposite could also happen, though.
#21 New England - Everson Griffen (LB, USC)
#22 NY Giants - Eric Berry (FS/CB, Tennessee)
#23 Green Bay - Charles Brown (OT, USC)
#24 Arizona - Ricky Sapp (OLB, Clemson)
#25 Philadelphia - Jahvid Best (RB, Cal)
New England needs linebacker help so badly it actually hurts to watch them on defense. Everson is a bigger OLB, but New England loves size on defense. New York needs secondary help and Berry offers versatility at S and CB. Green Bay's OL has had major problems and since I don't think we'll see Bulaga declare, I think Brown is the guy for them. Arizona's pass rush turns on and off, but they have the luxury of drafting a high-risk high-reward prospect here, though I'm sure they'd rather get OL. Philadelphia was a little tougher for me, but with Brian Westbrook mulling retirement I could see them drafting a possible replacement - and yes, I know they have LeSean McCoy. Neither back can handle 300+ carries, but together they help a stacked Philadelphia team.
#26 Dallas - Taylor Mays (S, USC)
#27 Seattle - Jonathan Dwyer (RB, Georgia Tech)
#28 Cincinnati - Jermaine Gresham (TE, Oklahoma)
#29 San Diego - Jared Odrick (DE, Penn State)
#30 Minnesota - Syd'Quan Thompson (CB, Cal)
#31 New Orleans - Patrick Robinson (CB, Florida State)
#32 Indianapolis - Jerry Hughes (DE, TCU)
Mays just seems like a Jerry Jones player and at this point presents good value. Cincinnati never seems to have a good TE... I think getting someone like Gresham could take the heat off of Ochocinco and the young WRs they have. I know nothing about Odrick, but San Deigo needs front-7 help and he seems like their type of defensive end, having played defensive tackle at Penn State. After originally assigning Minnesota Weatherspoon, who actually went to Tennessee earlier (oops!), I decided to go with Syd'Quan Thompson out of Cal. I think, due to system, the Vikings would have Thompson higher than Patrick Robinson, who went to New Orleans. New Orleans seems like a team constantly needing cornerbacks, and Robinson is too good to go much later than this. Hughes is a guy a lot of teams might look at as a OLB in a 3-4, but Indianapolis would be wise to consider him at defensive end - one of the only teams both willing to take a smaller DE and willing to draft a small-school player.
I think I can hear Rob's unhappiness several thousand miles away with the Dwyer selection, but I actually think this could be a steal. While I am disappointed that I didn't get a chance to have Seattle draft Iupati, Denver's pick was just too low and Seattle's too high to take him. Dwyer played through an injury earlier in the year but in looking at 2008 film and later-2009 film, Dwyer has good speed, a great frame, and would provide some "umph" to Justin Forsett's slashing. I'm concerned about the offense, but Dwyer was fairly successful in part-time duty as a true Freshman in 2007, before Paul Johnson arrived at Georgia Tech, showing at least decent vision and capability to function outside the wacky system GT runs.
Note: The exclusion of Carlos Dunlap is intentional - I've heard from a reliable source that several NFL scouts can't even justify taking him in the first two rounds. It wouldn't surprise me if Dunlap blew away teams at the combine, but until that happens I'm going off of what film is telling people.
