    Rick Gosselin's Second Mock Draft: Dez Bryant to Cowboys

    12:30 AM CDT on Sunday, April 18, 2010

    The St. Louis Rams cannot pass up a franchise quarterback for the third consecutive year not after having released incumbent starter Marc Bulger this off-season.

    So pencil in Oklahoma's Sam Bradford to the Rams at the first overall pick of the 2010 draft. Next up is finding a home for Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen, the only other quarterback on this draft board with franchise traits.

    A couple of other teams in the top 10 could use a quarterback, most notably Cleveland and Buffalo. But don't rule out Kansas City and Washington.

    Clausen's college coach, Charlie Weis, is now the offensive coordinator of the Chiefs, and the Redskins need to start grooming a successor for Donovan McNabb, who turns 34 this season. Washington may not be in this position to draft a talented young quarterback such as Clausen again any time soon.

    Washington selects fourth, Kansas City fifth, Cleveland seventh and Buffalo ninth.

    If Clausen is not drafted in the top 10, he could fall victim to an Aaron Rodgers-type slide. There isn't a team in the teens in this draft in the market for a quarterback, so Clausen could wind up available into the 20s.

    Rodgers projected as a top 10 pick in 2005 but slid to 24, where the Packers stole a Pro Bowl quarterback. Clausen could be a similar bargain if he slips out of the top 10.

    Give Clausen to the Redskins in the second mock draft offering from The Dallas Morning News. The first one last Sunday was based on best available player. This one places a greater emphasis on team need.

    Wow .

    Gosselin is usually one of the best in the business with his Mocks.

    i know he has contacts all around the league. if it went down like that i'd be stunned. i do want a corner with our first pick. because i like the corners over the D-lineman in the first.

  3. #3
    I wouldn't mind Kareem Jackson.

  4. #4
    I like Jackson but would take Iupati instead.

    I think KC is taking Clausen.

    When is Kate Gosslein putting out her draft?

  5. #5
    Jackson at 29 is very poor value...

    I'd rather trade down...

    I agree. Woody and/or Faneca could be gone in one year and this would solve an anticipated major need one year from now. Also seems like too good of value to pass up, but I doubt he'll be availalbe to us.

    And I really like Jackson, have him rated as my fourth CB after Haden, Wilson, and McCourty.

    But Iupati would be hands down the BAP on the board. It's not just about this year. We have to think long term as well. Faneca is due something like $12 million next year which means this will likely be his last season with the team. Woody is getting up there in years as well.

    Iupati is maybe the best OG prospect since Hutchinson came out. He's actually been compared to Alan Faneca.

    I think he could see the field some as well in his first year. The Jets love those goaline/jumbo packages where they employ an extra OL (Hunter/Turner).

    The Skins didn't trade for McNabb just to take Clausen number 4 overall. That just won't happen.

    And no, Jackson is not the most physical corner in the draft and I'd be really annoyed if he was the pick. He just doesn't have the necessary hips to stay with receivers who have any speed. Just watch some Bama games and I guarantee you'll see him getting beat.

    2nd round I'd consider Jackson, but definitely not first.

    No thanks... Just watch the senior bowl again and watch Iupati get ABUSED by Geno Atkins time and time again. The holding he constantly did was a joke too.

    No player capable of getting beat time and time again can be compared to someone like Hutchinson.

    Everyone knows Iupati needs to work on technique.

    But he's extremely gifted, as strong as a bull, and has the mean streak you look for in an OL.

    He's one of the very few interior OL worthy of a 1st round grade.

    Dislike this one and K Jackson as our #29 would be. Redskins take Clausen?? WHat? Why? If their trying to build a win now team this makes no sense. Is he insulting their intelligence? Probably. It is washington

  12. #12
    Jackson is probably going to be off the board by the time we draft, word is hes rising up boards fast. So I don't see how it would be poor value.

  13. #13
    Mike Mayock has Jackson as his 3rd rated CB in the draft above McCourty. So if you are anti-Jackson you are anti-CB in the first round.

    Gosselin is awful until the day before the draft- then he's outstanding.....gets a lot of his info from Gil Brandt......

    Or you don't agree with Mayock... And you actually have your own opinion of players.


    I'd take McCourty above him and I'm not even a huge fan of McCourty.

    Corners above Jackson imo:

    Haden
    Kyle Wilson
    Patrick Robinson
    Perrish Cox
    McCourty

    agreed- plus he's played very little football and possesses a great amount of upside.....

    what a coup for the 49ers if that were to happen.

    Right. Like ranking McCourty over Jackson was totally original and not based on hype found elsewhere. Gotcha. Not saying I pray at the church of Mayock but the guy has mad cred. Oh, and I have my own opinions on players, I just try to have a little more tact going about it.

    I think there is almost zero chance of us going offense in the first round. Rex has yet to pick a defensive player in the draft, and that streak ends this year. We also know that he loves corners, so it would not surprise me if we wind up with one at 29.
