2010 NFL Draft 1st Round Open Thread(Picks 13-23)

 2010 NFL Draft
Round/Pick Team
Player, Position,                      School            


Brandon Graham, DE - Michigan
Most thought the Eagles would go after a Safety after moving up to #13.  Instead the Eagles go and get a pass rusher.  Graham is very similar to LaMarr Woodley in Pittsburgh.


  Earl Thomas, DB - Texas
The Seahawks have to be excited.  They have seen two great players fall in their laps - one on offense, the other of defense.  Thomas can play multiple positions.  Pete Carroll getting it done in Seattle.


  Jason Pierre-Paul, DE - USF
A player no one has really heard of before the combine, Pierre-Paul is a physical freak.  He is a bit rough around the edges, but he is just peaking athletically.


   Derrick Morgan, DE - Georgia Tech
A bit surprised that Morgan lasted this long, but Tennessee will be happy to swoop in and take him.  The Titans are rebuilding their defense a bit and Morgan will help that process.


  Mike Iupati, OG - Idaho
The Niners are not messing around in addressing the offensive line.  It speaks well of Alex Smith that the Niners went T and G instead of a Quarterback


  Maurkice Pouncey, C - Florida
The Steelers get their man.  I was hoping the Broncos would move ahead of Pittsburgh to get Pouncey, but with the Niners able to get Iupati at 17, it left Pouncey for the Steelers.


   Sean Weatherspoon, ILB - Missouri
You get the feeling that this was another player McDaniels was hoping to get - Weatherspoon is a natural linebacker who got a bad rap for playing as a Sr. on a young defense.  A stud.


   Kareem Jackson, CB - Alabama
Jackson is a perfect fit in Houston, where the terminology on defense is the same as in college.


   Jermaine Gresham, TE - Oklahoma
The Bengals needed a TE and they got a really good one in Gresham.  Great target downfield for Carson Palmer


Demaryius Thomas, WR - Georgia Tech
The Broncos get their big receiver in Thomas.  If not for a foot injury, Thomas would likely have been a Top-10 pick.  Good value for the Broncos at 22 as well.


  Bryan Bulaga, OT - Iowa
Great value for the Packers, who needed to address the O-Line, especially playing in a division with the Vikings.
