    PlanetSteeler 2010 Mock Draft Official Selection Thread

    Please, post only picks on this thread. There is a separate thread for reaction and commentary. Also, there are still a heck of a lot of slots open (and possibly more that I originally thought, since it appears that Woodley of Troy is sufficiently disgusted by the Santonio trade that I guess he won't be here for Seattle and Tennessee now). Please continue to sign up at the Planet Mock Draft Sign-Up Thread. I was going to grab a couple of more teams myself, but I was thinking about later teams like Dallas and San Diego...now I may have to fill in with some early teams instead just to get us through this first day. Join us here, folks, if only to get your mind off the trading of a Super Bowl MVP for a bit.

    Anyway, here is the pick schedule (all times are Eastern Standard Time, since that is the time zone where Pittsburgh is located, so no whining from folks from the West Coast or international posters):

    The Actual NFL Draft begins!

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Re: PlanetSteeler 2010 Mock Draft Official Selection Thread

    Chadman posted this earlier in the Sign-Up thread before the Official Pick Thread was created, so I will cut-and-paste his selection here to kick off the festivities.




    So....it's 9.09 on Monday the 12th, so it's time for the Rams to select...


    No surprises here- with the #1 pick of the 2010 NFL Draft, the St Louis Rams are proud to announce the selection of...

    SAM BRADFORD- QB FROM OKLAHOMA
    6'4" 236LBS



    When you are a poor team, with no real prospects at QB for the near future, you simply must pick a signal caller. Bradford is the best in this draft class, and will be asked to lead this franchise for the forseeable future.


    Accuracy: One of the more deadly accurate passers in recent memory whether throwing short, intermediate or deep. Places throws in tight spaces when facing zones or splitting two defenders down the seam. Puts the ball on his man's numbers so he can make a play after the catch, whether the receiver is standing still or on the move. Anticipates receivers' routes very well, and doesn't have to wait until they make their break or get open. Accurate on fades into the end zone or behind defenses, although a bit inconsistent in trajectory on those throws.

    Arm Strength: Tall, lanky player who doesn't own a cannon but has more than enough arm strength to be successful in the NFL. Able to fit the ball into tight quarters, especially in the middle of the field. Uses anticipation and accuracy to connect on deep outs; NFL corners may jump those throws. Will stretch the field vertically when needed.

    Setup/Release: Decisive and quick with his release. Tight spiral on most every throw. Generally quiet feet, patient and poised, but may have gotten more gun-shy with an inexperienced offensive line if not injured in 2009. Willing to stand in and deliver against pressure before the injury. Throws from three-quarter slot at times, which negates his height advantage. Works out of the shotgun often but is solid with his footwork and balanced in drops. Good ball fake when in play-action, causes peeking corners to bite using a strong pump fake.

    Reading Defenses: Able to go through progressions or looks off safety when in the pocket, but often hit the primary read or quick screen in Oklahoma's spread offense. Understands hot reads and where defense is vulnerable, but his lack of feel for backside pressure and missing late blitzers cost him dearly last season. Trusts his arm and receivers too much in tight spaces, and at times won't recognize dropping linebackers and late-moving safeties. Comfortable leading his team in tight situations and has adequate clock awareness, but should improve with more snaps. Coaches called plays for Bradford.

    On the Move: Maintains square shoulders and places the ball on target whether throwing left or right. Keeps his wits about him (and eyes down the field) if pressure takes away his rollout, resets and delivers on time. Nimble feet in the pocket; able to create room for himself to deliver the ball. Drifts toward the line of scrimmage when rolling out to his left, allowing defenders to reach him more easily. Not a scrambler or very elusive as a runner in space, but is mobile enough to pick up first downs on rollouts if defense lays off.

    Intangibles: Intelligent, high-character, well-respected player on and off the field. Quiet leader by example who doesn't panic but needs to vocally hold teammates more accountable. Lack of bulk and durability are major questions after missing of last season with a shoulder injury.

    NFL Comparison: Eli Manning, Giants

    Re: PlanetSteeler 2010 Mock Draft Official Selection Thread

    First curveball of the draft. Ndamukong Suh is the best player in the draft, but it is understandable why the Rams passed on him to take a potential franchise QB in Sam Bradford. Could the Lions really pass on Suh as well? Really?

    Well, they drafted Sammie Lee Hill in the 4th round out of tiny Stillman College last season, and he did a surprisingly good job plugging the middle as a rookie. Plus, they traded for Corey Williams of the Browns. Williams was miscast as a 3-4 DE in Cleveland, but he was an quality 4-3 DT in Green Bay prior to that. With Hill on the nose and Williams as the under tackle, the Lions don't have a huge pressing need at DT. Suh would be a great addition to any team, but he would be somewhat of a luxury here. The Lions have bigger needs elsewhere (and it isn't as if a DT is going to be the guy to put a perennial losing organization over the top, becoming the lynchpin toward the transformation into a dynasty...unless his name is Joe Greene, of course!)

    The Lions drafted a franchise QB last year, and need to do everything possible to allow him to succeed. When your division features pass rushers like Jared Allen, Julius Peppers, and Clay Matthews, protecting your franchise QB's blind side is of utmost importance. Jeff Backup is an adequate, average, mediocre LT that has been in the league for 10 years. At this point in his career, a move to guard may be in the works. They already traded for Seattle LG Rob Sims this off-season, so solidifying the o-line in front of Stafford is a priority. A starting o-line of Okung-Sims-Raiola-Backus-Cherilus is potentially quite good, giving Stafford plenty of time to find Calvin Johnson running open downfield.

    Plus, consider that there are many more early DT busts than OT busts (not that I am saying that Suh will be a bust, but OT seems to be a safer pick in general in the top 5 historically). Frankly, I think the only thing that could slow Suh down would be injuries (and he has already had 2 knee surgeries in college, which is concerning).

    The last time the Lions spent a top 10 draft pick on an OT was on Lomas Brown with the #6 pick in 1985, and he rewarded them with 7 Pro Bowls. Perhaps drafting Okung here will be met with similar success.



    With the 2nd pick in the PlanetSteelers Mock Draft, the Detroit Lions select:

    Russell Okung
    Offensive Tackle
    Oklahoma State
    6'5" 310 lbs.
    Bench pressed 225 lbs. 38 times with long 36" arms



    Strengths:
    Very good height with long arms
    Thick, strong lower body
    Extremely high level of athleticism
    Patient pass protector; does not overextend
    Great lateral agility
    Quick kick step
    Consistent footwork
    Nice ankle/knee flexion
    Surprisingly physical run blocker
    Light on his feet
    Highly experienced since true freshman year
    Very durable - 34 straight starts
    Understands angles
    Recognizes stunts and blitz assignments
    Gets to second level
    Leader
    Tremendous upside
    Week 1 starting left tackle
    Franchise player
    Potential No. 1 overall pick



    Weaknesses:
    Occasionally gets too high in his stance
    Needs to gain a little more upper body strength
    Sometimes loses focus (bored with competition?)
    Can be inconsistent with leverage
    Room to improve hand punch
    Must redirect at a higher level in NFL



    Summary: I noticed Okung last summer when watching tape on Brandon Pettigrew and I pegged him as a potential star in 2008. He has all the makings of a Pro Bowl-caliber left tackle and has the upside to potentially warrant a No. 1 overall pick. If he can hone his technique slightly over the summer, I would be shocked to see him fall out of the first five picks next year barring injury. Okung has practically everything you look for in an offensive tackle. Last name pronounced OH-KOONG.

    Player Comparison: Joe Thomas. Thomas and Okung have very similar frames with very good intangibles and the upside to dominate at the next level. Both had polished pass protection skills in college.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are happy to have the best player in the draft fall into their laps at #3

    Ndamukong Suh
    Defensive Tackle
    Nebraska
    6'4" 307 lbs.
    40 Yard Dash: 4.98 seconds
    Bench Pressed 225 lbs. 32 times
    Vertical Jump: 35.5"



    Year GP TKL TFL SACK
    2005 2 1 0.0 0.0
    2006 14 19 8.0 3.5
    2007 12 19 8.0 3.5
    2008 13 76 16.0 7.5
    2009 14 85 24.0 12.0
    Totals 55 200 56.0 26.5



    Strengths:
    Very big frame
    Outstanding muscle definition
    Good lower body strength
    Elite junior year production
    Very active; above average motor
    Nice second effort
    Good agility
    Takes on multiple blockers; run clogger
    Highly athletic
    Grades out well in chase (pursuit) tackling
    Disengages from linemen to make tackles
    Powerful
    Collapses pocket
    Backfield penetrator
    Good instincts
    Explosive off snap
    Great leadership and reportedly solid work ethic
    Solid all-around skill set
    Good amount of upside
    Versatile; can play 1-, 3-, and 5-techniques.



    Weaknesses:
    Occasionally gets too high in stance; leads to being washed
    Leverage technique could be more consistent
    Could develop more of a pass-rush repertoire
    Multiple knee injuries and surgeries
    One-year wonder?



    Summary: Suh is an outstanding prospect for the 2010 NFL Draft class because there is so much to like about him. He can play in multiple schemes, which NFL general managers love. His durability could end up being a huge problem dependent on doctors' reviews at NFL Combine like Glenn Dorsey. If he can stay healthy and keep the production up as a senior, he should be a first-round lock. Name pronounced IN-DOM-AH-KEN SOO. "Ndamukong" means "House of Spears" in a Cameroon language.

    Player Comparison: Richard Seymour. Seymour and Suh have that great length, explosiveness, and strength that you want in a defensive tackle with the ability to play various schemes.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Re: PlanetSteeler 2010 Mock Draft Official Selection Thread

    Washington is tempted by the best player available, Gerald McCoy. Since they are converting to the 3-4 this year, a front three consisting of Albert Haynesworth, Ma'Ake Kemoeatu, and Gerald McCoy would be mighty tempting. If the Redskins had a 2nd or even a 3rd round draft pick in this draft, I likely would have gone with McCoy as the B.P.A. here (and then looked for o-line help on day two). But since they do not have any other picks until day 3 of the draft, and they have a huge, gaping, monstrous hole at LT to protect newly acquired franchise QB Donovan McNabb (because of Chris Samuels' early retirement due to spinal stenosis), they simply cannot go any other direction except for LT with their lone premium pick in this draft. They are disappointed that consensus #1 OT Russell Okung is off the board, but they will go with the next best OT on their board.

    Personally, I prefer Bryan Bulaga as a prospect, but word is that Trent Williams may fit the Shanahan zone blocking schemes better, so...



    The Washington Redskins select:

    Trent Williams
    Offensive Tackle
    Oklahoma
    6'5" 314 lbs.
    40 Time: 4.88!!!
    23 Bench Reps of 225 lbs.
    Arms: 34 1/4" long



    Strengths:
    Ideal bulk --- Fantastic athlete --- Quick --- Agile --- Nimble feet --- Good balance --- Natural knee bender --- Moves well laterally --- Mobile with range to get to the second level --- Can hit a moving target --- Great strength --- Stout at the point of attack --- Gets a good push in the run game --- Able to adjust and recover when beat --- Understands positioning and excels at sealing off defenders --- Solid instincts and awareness --- Violent initial punch --- Tough --- Nasty with a killer instinct --- Has a lot of experience against top competition --- Versatile.



    Weaknesses:
    A tad shorter than you'd prefer --- Doesn't have real long arms --- Has leverage and pad level lapses --- Motor and concentration wane at times --- Battled some minor injuries --- Work ethic's been questioned.



    Notes:
    Was a three-year starter for the Sooners --- Named a 1st Team All-American in 2009 --- Earned 1st Team All-Big 12 honors in 2008 and 2009 --- Could project to right or left tackle at the next level --- Played right tackle early in his career but moved to left tackle to replace Phil Loadholt as a senior --- Looked much better on the right side in 2008 than he did on the left side in 2009 --- Struggles as a senior can be at least partially attributed to a relative unfamiliarity with the position, his not necessarily being 100% healthy as well as an inexperienced group of o-lineman around him --- Has all the tools, just needs to be more consistent and pay closer attention to the details --- Terrific all-around blocker who is equally effective in the pass and run games --- Actually compares quite favorably to New Orleans Saints All - Pro Jamaal Brown.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    Super Bowl winning Steeler teams were built around a dynamic, in-your-face defense plus blue-collar, hard-hitting, no-nonsense football players on offense such as Hines Ward & Jerome Bettis.

    We don't want Juju & Conner to replace what we lost in Brown & Bell.

    We are counting on Juju & Conner to return us to the glory we once had with Hines & The Bus.

    Re: PlanetSteeler 2010 Mock Draft Official Selection Thread

    Hardliner is on the road today, so he PM'ed me his selection.

    He gave me a couple of options, but his top choice is still available.

    Here is what he wrote about him:

    First option: Eric Berry, S, U of Tenn. The Chiefs had to use the old vets at Safety last year, Brown and McGraw, and they were subpar on their good days.


    The Kansas City Chiefs are pleased to select:

    Eric Berry
    Safety
    Tennessee
    6'0" 211 lbs.
    40 Time: 4.40 sec.
    Bench Pressed 225 lbs: 19 times
    Vertical Jump: 43"



    Strengths:
    Extremely productive
    Highly athletic
    Great initial quickness; short-range explosion
    Nice recovery speed
    Terrific instincts; anticipates the play
    Smooth athlete
    Fluid hips
    Shows textbook footwork
    Absolute playmaker
    Can really lay the wood
    Physical and violent player
    Interception machine
    Does a great job of reading the quarterback's eyes
    Gets out of backpedal cleanly and breaks on ball
    Soft hands
    Good route recognition
    Doesn't miss tackles
    Elite range in pass coverage
    Turns INTs into TDs
    Aggressive against the run
    Closes in on ball-carrier quickly
    Scheme and position versatility (FS or SS)
    Plays through pain
    Elite skill set
    Very intelligent
    Nice work ethic



    Weaknesses:
    Lacks some upper body strength
    Average height
    Inconsistent when taking angles against the run
    Could perfect his backpedal as he has a tendency to get too high
    Left shoulder needs to check out medically



    Summary: Eric Berry is an elite talent and a top-10 pick. It is as simple as that, barring injury next season. Berry is one of those few individuals where it just seems like this is what he was born to do. He is a natural on the football field with the intangibles to boot. He will also be coached by one of the best defensive coordinators of all time in Monte Kiffin who knows how to coach the strong safety position (John Lynch and Jermaine Phillips).

    What really impresses me about Berry is he reportedly played all of the 2008 season with a nagging shoulder injury, which he then had surgery on in December. Berry is the No. 1 prospect in the 2010 NFL Draft, in my opinion.

    Player Comparison: Ed Reed. Both players are 5-11 with a surreal knack for the game of football and have the ball skills, range, and playmaking ability you look for.

    Well, it appears that Woodley of Troy wasn't kidding when he talked about the Santonio trade forcing him to step away from this mocking drafting stuff. Oh well, I guess I'll have to pick for him too.



    The Seattle Seahawks use their first of two 1st round picks to select:

    Gerald McCoy
    Defensive Tackle
    Oklahoma
    6'4" 298 lbs.
    40 Time: 4.96 sec.
    Bench Press reps of 225 lbs.: 23



    Strengths:
    Impressive size
    Cut athlete with good muscle definition
    Elite-level athleticism
    Explosive off snap
    Impressive instincts
    Shows ability to disengage quickly
    Great lateral agility
    Grades out highly with chase tackles
    Good vision; finds ballcarrier
    Strong; active hands
    Penetrates well; knows how to get under a lineman
    Displays good pad level
    Nice speed; plays fast
    Wide pass rush repertoire
    Shows good balance and coordination; flexible athlete
    Quick hips
    Adequate upper body strength
    Very good motor and stamina
    Durable
    Great intangibles and work ethic
    Prototype three-technique



    Weaknesses:
    Lacks some bulk to be a two-gap defensive tackle
    Not a fit for every scheme
    Not an elite run defender
    Struggles against massive offensive linemen against run
    Not overly powerful



    Summary: McCoy is an amazing prospect and simply great at what he is - a three technique. He isn't going to be Vince Wilfork, and 3-4 teams won't target him. He will fit most 4-3 schemes looking for an elite pass rusher and someone who can disrupt opponents' backfields. He has elite intangibles and should be a definite top-10 pick. McCoy is my No. 1 defensive tackle for the 2010 NFL Draft.

    Player Comparison: Kevin Williams. Williams is one of the elite defensive tackles in the NFL with his athleticism, instincts and pass-rush ability.

    Steeler teams featuring stat-driven, me-first, fantasy-football-darling diva types such as Antonio Brown & Le'Veon Bell won no championships.

    that's who i would have chosen for the Seahags also, McCoy fell right into Seattle's lap.

    even WoodleyofTroy couldn't have made a better pick...

    now who will AkronSteel select for the Brownies?

    Recommendations for Cleveland and Oakland:

    Cleveland...they can't be expecting Jake Delhomme to be the answer...Jimmy Clausen

    Oakland...whoever that OT was that blew people away at the combine...right up Al Davis's alley.
