2010 MHR Community Mock Draft -- Picks #3, #4 and #5 Are In!

With the #3 pick in the 2010 MHR Community Mock Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select....




DT Ndamukong Suh, Nebraska

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Round 1, Pick #3 overall

GM

Skotty

Details of the pick after the jump...

Best Player in the draft? Certainly a steal at #3.

From GM Skotty:  I was looking to trade back to gather picks with this selection but the price was too big. So i selected Suh, not a bad payoff. He is a beast and had a great college career. Scouts say he is the best DT prospect to come out in years. Hes a Top Notch pass rusher and isnt all that bad against the run either. Has an elite initial burst, Great tackling ability. He reminds scouts of a young Richard Seymour. The Bucs have alot of holes, but Suh will be something for this defense to build around. Im happy with this selection and think i made the right decision. 

Commishes' CommentsErnesto:I have absolutely no problem saying that Ndamukong Suh was the best player in college football last season and the top overall prospect in this year's draft. Getting a player like that at #3 overall is as much of a coup as you can get this high in the draft. The Buccaneers are in a full-fledged rebuilding mode and this pick harkens back to the recent peak in the franchise's history.  Sayre:  Great selection for the Buccaneers. They are in a very good position in the first two rounds of this draft, and they came away very nicely here by getting the best overall talent out of the entire crop in my opinion. Suh is an absolutely perfect fit for the Tampa Bay defense, and he fits a huge hole of need. A great pick by the Bucs here, and good value getting Suh at third overall.

With the #4 pick in the 2010 MHR Community Mock Draft, the Washington Redskins select....




OT Bryan Bulaga, Iowa

Washington Redskins

Round 1, Pick #4 overall

GM Predominantly Orange

 

 

Shanny drafts 1st round LTs back to back...technically.

From GM Predominantly Orange:  Although the conventional wisdom screams Sam Bradford with this pick, its not clear Bradford and Mike Shanahan’s system and philosophy are a good fit. Bradford lacks both the big arm and elite mobility/athleticism that Shanahan has always favored. While in the past Shanahan has forgone one or the trait or the other in a starting QB, his one experiment with a QB that lacked both (Brian Griese) was wrought with frustration and, ultimately, failure. Since Jason Campbell continues to show flashes of competence and since the Redskins have glaring needs at both OT and G, Bulaga is a sensible pick in this scenario. While its true that Bulaga’s arm length borders in red-flag territory when it comes to NFL LT metrics, Shanahan has a history of over looking such red flags in prospects that he likes. Considering Bulaga’s off the chart intangibles, a skill set perfect for zone-blocking schemes, considerable experience in a zone-blocking system in college, his coaching pedigree, and a demonstrated ability to thrive at LT against elite competition in college, there is a lot for Shannahan to like in the young tackle out of Iowa. With Okung off the board, Bulaga appears to be the player best poised to make a big and immediate impact for a team that has recently struggled to both run the ball and keep its QB upright.

Commish's CommentsErnesto:  I am of the mind that Jimmy Clausen would tempt Mike Shanahan moreso than the more highly regarded Sam Bradford, so I'm not surprised to see them pass on the QB position in this scenario. Even if Jimmy is available at #4, most people are coming around to the thinking that OT is a greater concern for the Skins. With Okung of the board, Bulaga becomes the best player available at the position. Brian has been linked to the Chiefs at #5, so he's certianly a viable top five. I like the choice and am curious to see just how far DT Gerald McCoy continues to slide...  Sayre:  This is a very underrated move, and one that has slipped my eye recently. I have never seen Bryan Bulaga as a top five talent, but he has excellent athleticism and will be an absolutely perfect fit for Mike Shanahan's zone blocking scheme. He is already well-versed in a zone blocking offense coming from Iowa, one of the best offensive line factories in the country. Bulaga is going to come in well coached, and he will be the cornerstone for the Washington offensive line for years to come. His footwork needs some tailoring, but he is as good as they come, and would have undoubtedly been the top OT in the 2011 draft. A very solid choice.

With the #5 pick in the 2010 MHR Community Mock Draft, the Kansas City Chiefs select....




FS Eric Berry, Tennessee

Kansas City Chiefs

Round 1, Pick #5 overall

GM DBroncs1414

 

 

Polished safeties are rare, and this one shines

From GM DBroncs1414:  For the Chiefs, I had this down to either Berry or Okung. If neither were here I would likely have traded down. However, the Cheifs hit a homerun as Berry has fallen to them. Berry to me is the best prospect in this draft, why? Versatility. In an interview during the combine, Berry was asked what his greatest strength is. He responded with versatility. He said he can play at any position in the secondary, including both safety positions, corner, and nickel corner. With his ball-hawking skills, 4.4 flat 40 time, and 19 bench reps of a weight more than his (benched 225 at 211!!!!), I tend to agree. The Chiefs have no impact player on their D, and with Berry, the Chiefs now have a player to build around. He is young, has no off the field issues we know of, and he has played in a pro-style D (for more of Berry's strengths, go to this website: http://walterfootball.com/scoutingreport2010eberry.php, as there are too many things on there to post here). Berry's only true weakness is that he is not great at taking good angles in run support, and with the rest of his positives, this is a risk (if you can even dare to call it that) the Chiefs are willing to take, as this minor problem can be solved by a good coaching staff. I believe not only with Berry do the Chiefs fill their greatest need, but they also go BPA and don't reach as they did last year.

Commish's CommentsErnesto: Safeties rarely get taken in the top ten - and even those haven't exactly worked out well - but these rules don't seem to apply to the dynamic Eric Berry. He's the most complete DB in the draft and will elevate the play of his peers both with his example and leadership. He's a great addition to any team, but especially one that's rebuilding and emulating the Patriot Way in doing so. I believe this is not only the Chiefs most likely pick, but also their ideal.  Sayre:  Scott Pioli recently voiced his opinion on taking safeties early on in the draft, and he didn't seem too fond of the idea. Apparently, this Kansas City mock GM believes that is a smokescreen, and I can't say the Chiefs are getting cut a raw deal here at all. This pick makes some sense for them, though I feel their more pressing need is at offensive tackle. Kansas City is getting the most highly touted safety prospect since Sean Taylor, and this is an impressive start to their 2010 draft. The Chiefs fill a position of need on their defense, though at a high cost.
