With the #24 pick in the 2010 MHR Community Mock Draft, the Philadelphia Eagles select....
C Maurkice Pouncey, Florida
Round 1, Pick #24 overall
Details of the pick after the jump...
I told John to bring us back a Gator from Florida...
But it looks like he will have to fight j-man if he wants this one.
From GM j-man: MAURKICE POUNCEY is a big strong anchor in the middle, and like Cleveland's ALEX MACK played on a championship team. He can play C-or G, and ANDY REID loves his big offensive linemen. The Eagles need someone to plug the middle for the next 10 years, and I talked to Bleeding Green Nation and they want a lineman. I would have taken C.J. Spiller if Pouncey was off the board
Commishes' Comments: Ernesto: The Eagles are famous for their philosophy: get a QB, protect your QB and get after their QB. This philosophy leads to early draft picks being spent on the trenches more often than not, even when an immediate need may not be apparent. Pouncey fits the bill, being the top center and perhaps second best guard in this draft class. This is exactly the kind of pick that keeps Philadelphia perennially competitive. Sayre: Solid pick for the Eagles, who will be a nice fit for Pouncey. Pouncey is undoubtedly the top center prospect in this year's draft, and he has the versatility to kick over to guard if need be. If Kevin Kolb is to be the Eagles' long term investment, the Eagles need to protect him.
With the #25 pick in the 2010 MHR Community Mock Draft, we Have a Trade!Detroit has traded up with the Baltimore Ravens, #38 and #66 for the Ravens' #25 and #156.
At #25, the Detroit Lions select...
RB C.J. Spiller, Clemson
Round 1, Pick #25 overall
From GM Tim-O-Tay: As a Lions GM not named Matt Millen, I found it prudent to move up in the draft to get addition help for young quarterback. Getting Okung solidified the line, but CJ Spiller will releave the the pressure upon Stafford to win games by himself.
I had a field of dreams moment during the three way trade between myself and the Eagles and Jets GMs that ended up falling apart at the last minute. I heard, "If you build it, they will come". "It" is offense. The Lions now have "It", the focus in the future will invariably be defense, but for now we have an opportunity to win any game through the explosiveness of our offense.
Commish's Comments: Ernesto: With the best offensive tackle in the draft already in tow, the Lions trade back into the first round to pick up the top running back in the class; something tells me that Matt Stafford may have hacked into Tim Lynch's account for the purposes of this mock! I've never been all that comfortable with Spiller and RBs like him, but there is no denying his dynamic, explosive nature when he gets his hands on the football. Detroit could do much worse than adding perhaps the best pure playmaker available to their young, talented core on offense... Sayre: Absolutely awesome trade for the Lions, who get not only the best offensive tackle in the draft, but the best offensive weapon in CJ Spiller. Fantastic first round for Detroit. CJ Spiller is a guy who will pair with Kevin Smith as the speed back and who can also be deadly in the return game.
With the #26 pick in the 2010 MHR Community Mock Draft the Arizona Cardinals select...
DE Jared Odrick, Penn State
Round 1, Pick #26 overall
From GM Jon Tollerud: We were thrilled to have the top 3-4 DE in this draft class FALL into our laps. While there are some character concerns With Odrick, we feel after listening to several interviews that he can work through his immaturity and has done fairly well to progress since his arrest in March 2009. Anthony Davis was an intriguing prospect but we value a high work ethic and want to see that stay the same. Golden Tate was also a viable option but we are happy to see who falls to us in the next round with a good crop of WR coming in this year.
Commish's Comments: Ernesto: Arizona continues to stockpile solid pieces for their 3-4 defense. That side of the ball took a big hit earlier this offseason, so there's many ways they could approach this pick. I think this is a solid combination of value and need, though. Odrick would be making the transition from 4-3 DT to 3-4 DE, but he's a prime candidate to make the change successfully. Sayre: The Cardinals have a number of different areas they need to look at early in the draft, and the defensive front seven has to be one of those areas. Jared Odrick is a high motor player who is probably the best five technique prospect on paper in this draft. He is lengthy, agile, and instinctive, and I really like his potential. Solid pick by the Cardinals.
