First Round

1. ST. LOUIS RAMS

Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma

Coming off of what longtime league personnel man Gil Brandt described as the best quarterback Pro Day workout since Troy Aikman's for the Cowboys back in 1989, Bradford's my guy at No.1. At his workout in Norman two weeks ago, Bradford threw 63 passes and every one of them was catchable. He weighed in at a sculpted 236 pounds, looking far stronger than he was at Oklahoma, and stood at 6-foot-5. The Rams have passed on QBs Matt Ryan (2008), Joe Flacco (2008), Chad Henne (2008) and Mark Sanchez (2009) in recent drafts. St. Louis won't -- and really can't -- pass on Bradford on April 22. For the heck of it, though, let's throw out a hypothetical situation. What if -- and of course, this isn't happening, but it sure is fun to mull over -- at 6:45 p.m. EST Thursday evening the Rams get a phone call from a Pittsburgh area code. Big Ben for the first overall pick. If you're St. Louis GM Billy Devaney, do you do it? Again, it's not happening. But let that simmer for a bit. Would you do it?

2. DETROIT LIONS

Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska

If the Lions find a way to land Albert Haynesworth from Washington without surrendering the second overall pick, they'll go with Oklahoma State offensive tackle Russell Okung. If they don't, they'll take Ndamukong Suh. Suh is the top rated player on my 2010 NFL Draft board and can be the franchise's defensive cornerstone to build around for the next decade. Jim Schwartz is a defensive coach at heart. I can't see him passing on the Nebraska star. Look for Detroit to address offensive tackle with the 34th overall pick.

3. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS

Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahom a

McCoy would have been a top five pick last year had he entered the draft after his redshirt sophomore season. In 2009, he recorded 14.5 tackles for a loss despite a constant barrage of double teams. Offensive lines built entire game plans around stopping McCoy while he played at Oklahoma. Tampa coach Raheem Morris got the heart and soul of his offense in QB Josh Freeman last April. He'll get the heart and soul of his defense in McCoy in 2010. This one's really a can't miss for Tampa. If Detroit picks an OT at No. 2, they'll have the fortune of picking between two franchise DTs in Suh and McCoy. Both are top notch prospects. Tampa's been missing a dominant presence in the middle since Warren Sapp left town in 2004.

4. WASHINGTON REDSKINS

Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State

It's no secret that the 'Skins are looking to fill Chris Samuels' shoes at tackle. Washington made a play at Chad Clifton in free agency before he re-signed with Green Bay. A prized offensive tackle prospect, Washington gets its guy on April 22 with Okung. In the Oklahoma State star, a player I had rated higher than No. 2 overall pick Jason Smith last year, coach Mike Shanahan & Co. would get a franchise cornerstone who gave up just one sack in 336 pass attempts in 2009. Shanahan struck gold in Ryan Clady at No. 8 overall in Denver. He'll do the same with Okung at No. 4.

5. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

Eric Berry, S, Tennessee

The Chiefs are reportedly looking to trade down, seeing a lot more value in the 10-20 range of this draft than in the top five. Thus far in the 2010 offseason, Kansas City has retained six of their own free agents and has gone out and signed five unrestricted free agents, including RB Thomas Jones and a pair of veteran linemen (center Casey Wiegmann, guard Ryan Lilja). They still have yet to address their ailing defensive backfield needs. In 2009, the starts at safety were divided between four veterans -- Mike Brown (16), Jon McGraw (9), Jarrad Page (5) and DaJuan Morgan (2) -- with Brown not coming back. Berry makes sense. A do-everything centerfielder at the safety spot in three years at Knoxville, he comes from a pro-style defense coached by Monte Kiffin at Tennessee. Compared to both Ed Reed and Troy Polamalu -- two completely different types of safeties -- he'll start right away.

6. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma

Seattle's one of the bigger wild cards in this draft. With left tackle, running back, and pass rush needs and two picks in the top 14, they'd love to come out of the first round filling two of those three needs. But which combination do you go? Trent Williams and an elite pass rusher? C.J. Spiller and a second-tier offensive tackle? Spiller and an OT, neglecting the defensive line? I think they go with the safe bet, replacing all-decade performer Walter Jones with Oklahoma's Williams. With a young quarterback (recently acquired Charlie Whitehurst) for the future now locked in, I see Carroll and personnel man John Schneider passing on Spiller, passing on Jason Pierre-Paul and Derrick Morgan, and passing on Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen and addressing the team's dire offensive line needs with the sixth overall pick. Seattle's quarterbacks were sacked an embarrassing 44 times in 2009. In Oklahoma's Williams, they get a premier prospect who can play left tackle or right tackle at a high level right away.

7. CLEVELAND BROWNS

Earl Thomas, S/CB, Texas

Only two players picked by the Browns in the first round since they returned to the NFL in 1999 are still on the roster -- left tackle Joe Thomas in 2007 and Alex Mack in 2009. That's not saying much about the team's draft day success. But there's a new boss in town, and slowly but surely the Cleveland roster is getting better and better this offseason. After bringing in two veteran quarterbacks, Super Bowl champion linebacker Scott Fujita and veterans Tony Pashos and Ben Watson, the Browns addressed two more areas of need by acquiring outside linebacker Chris Gocong and cornerback Sheldon Brown from the Eagles earlier this month. Gocong, a standout in Philly, should slide right into the OLB void left by the Kamerion Wimbley-to-Oakland trade. Brown, meanwhile, could start at corner on opening day. Things would certainly get interesting in the Cleveland war room if QB Jimmy Clausen slipped to No.7. Mike Holmgren's buddy Jon Gruden is extremely high on Clausen, but I think Holmgren & Co. may wait until the second round to address their quarterback needs by drafting either Tim Tebow or Colt McCoy. In the end, I think the Browns go with Earl Thomas, the tremendously talented safety out of Texas. A takeaway machine, Thomas will start -- and flourish -- right away under Eric Mangini. The 20-year-old Thomas can be the cornerstone of the Cleveland defense for years to come. Another possibility at No. 7 is my guy, Dez Bryant. If locker room chemistry maven Eric Mangini wasn't Cleveland's coach, I'd have him slated right here.

8. OAKLAND RAIDERS

Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers

Though critics have killed the Raiders for the lack of productivity from their top 10 picks in the past three drafts -- JaMarcus Russel (first overall), Darren McFadden (fourth overall), and Darrius Heyward-Bey (seventh overall) -- head coach Tom Cable was extremely positive when discussing Heyward-Bey earlier this week, noting, "You guys will be excited when you see us in [organized team activities] with the improvement Darrius has made. He has just jumped out at us in the offseason program, and probably no one is as excited on our team as Darrius is right now. He really has taken this thing leaps and bounds." Heyward-Bey failed to produce much of anything last year as Oakland suffered through a 5-11 season, extending the Raiders' NFL record of consecutive seasons with 11 or more losses to seven. Though the Raiders acquired Kamerion Wimbley from Cleveland, they've been all but silent in the free agent market. Trying to get inside Al Davis' head is never easy, but if I were to take my best bet, they'll be looking to land an offensive tackle at No.8. Bruce Campbell, a guy just about everyone and their mother has linked to Oakland, is always a possibility. And Bryan Bulaga, a steady performer who can play either left or right tackle, is worth considering. But I think the Raiders reach a bit and go with Anthony Davis, a standout at Rutgers who played his best ball against All-Big East pass rushers Greg Romeus of Pitt and George Selvie of South Florida. An imposing physical specimen with terrific, raw natural ability, there's a lot to love about the three-year starter. In the end, the ghost of Robert Gallery hovers over Bulaga's name if Davis and Cable pull the trigger on the kid from the Garden State.

9. BUFFALO BILLS

Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa

I read a great factoid this weekend. According to Bills team researchers, 28 percent of Buffalo's draft picks since 2004 have turned into starters. Only New Orleans (29 percent) has done better. The major difference between those two teams? Well, the Saints have been to two NFC Championship Games and won the Super Bowl last season. Buffalo hasn't been to the playoffs in a decade. As for 2010? Well, things aren't looking too great. The AFC East continues to get better and the Bills seem to have needs just about everywhere on the field. The offensive line is a disaster, Buffalo opted not to retain two of their top wideouts this offseason and the pass rush was all but nonexistent in 2009. They're also moving from a 4-3 to a 3-4 defense and don't have a run-stuffing 3-4 clog for that scheme. And none of the three quarterbacks on the roster -- Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick, or Brian Brohm -- strike up visions of Jim Kelly (or even Frank Reich) in Buffalo. With the ninth pick, Buffalo can go many directions. Yet, even with Jimmy Clausen available in this scenario, I can't see GM Buddy Nix and coach Chan Gailey passing on the consistency of Bulaga. Capable of playing either left or right tackle at the next level, he'll be an immediate starter and join second year men Andy Levitre and Eric Wood on the young Buffalo offensive line. As for Buffalo's quarterback needs? The team is reportedly very interested in Tebow and may need to move into the latter half of the first round to land him.

10. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson

The Jags have only two picks in the first three rounds -- the 10th and 74th overall selections -- and would love to trade down a bit in the first round this year to scoop up a second rounder in the process. More than any other team, Jacksonville has hit the jackpot in round two of the NFL Draft in recent years with starters Rashean Mathis, Maurice Jones-Drew, Greg Jones, Daryl Smith, and Eben Britton. With Clausen on the board, there should be some willing participants for a swap. If no one's biting, I see Jackonsville taking the top player available. In this case, it's C.J. Spiller. But they already have MJD, right?! So what? In today's NFL, the more playmakers, the better. And in Spiller, they get a guy who can return kicks and punts, carry the rock, and catch passes out of the backfield. Of his 50-plus collegiate touchdowns, 23 came on plays of 50 yards or more. Jacksonville addressed its need for an elite pass rusher by acquiring DE Aaron Kampman earlier this month. They'll fill their holes at linebacker and defensive back in later rounds. At 10th overall, they'll go for the jackpot pick and take the game breaker in a Florida-raised kid, Mr. Spiller.

11. DENVER BRONCOS

Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State

I'm sick and tired of hearing about Dez Bryant's "character red flags." Character schmaracter. The only "crime" Bryant's guilty of is being a knucklehead. Sure, he's missed a few practices. And yes, he lied to the NCAA -- something I don't take lightly. But the punishment he was handed was absurd. Bryant has Randy Moss-like talent. And that's not hyperbole. Brandon Marshall, for as good of a player as he was on the field, was a constant distraction off of it and in the locker room. His departure creates a tremendous void at wideout. Josh McDaniels loves going to multiple wideout sets, and as of now his receiving corps is worse than thin, it's emaciated. Eddie Royal is coming off a miserable season, Brandon Stokley is nearing 100 years old, and neither Brandon Lloyd or Kenny McKinley are reliable first or second wideouts. Bryant's the answer. He'll be a tremendous NFL player and he'll produce right away in Denver. And I promise, Denver fans, there will be no "issues" to worry about.

12. MIAMI DOLPHINS

Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee

Though he was re-signed earlier this month, 35-year-old NT Jason Ferguson is obviously not the long-term DT solution for Miami. Williams is. The run-stuffing big man follows in the great tradition of the Tennessee DTs before him (Albert Haynesworth, Justin Harrell, Aubreyo Franklin) and could be that anchor of the Miami D-line for years to come. With Ferguson being docked with an eight-game suspension to start the 2010 season, Williams may see action sooner rather than later.

13. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

Joe Haden, CB, Florida

Jimmy Clausen's decision to not attend the draft in person on Thursday night may turn out to be a good one based on the way I have things shaking out here. San Fran was put in a similar situation last year when they were all but signed, sealed, and delivered to draft Michael Oher with the no.10 selection and Michael Crabtree fell into their lap. San Francisco will need to make a decision on whether they'll take Jimmy Clausen if he's sitting there at 13. I think they pass. Veteran Dre' Bly finished the '09 season with six starts at corner and likely won't be back. Veteran Nate Clements is scheduled to make $6 million in base salary. San Fran wants to get younger, faster and better at the position. They're hoping to land a player who can start right away. If they're looking for the top-rated cornerback on my board, Joe Haden is that guy.

14. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS

Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech

Now it gets interesting. With some TV draft experts fixated on Jimmy Clausen's potential free fall, the top two defensive end prospects -- Derrick Morgan and Jason Pierre-Paul -- could quietly go undrafted and remain on the board and available at No.14. Trent Williams and C.J. Spiller in the first round would be a major haul in the Pacific Northwest. With 33-year-old Patrick Kerney retiring and Daryl Tapp being sent to Philadelphia via trade, Seattle addresses their pass rush needs with a guy many have going in the top ten in Morgan. If Carroll and new GM John Schneider can emerge from day one with Trent Williams and Derrick Morgan, there will be a lot of happy folks up in Seattle.

15. NEW YORK GIANTS

Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama

Giants fans will be parading down Sixth Avenue on Thursday night if Alabama's McClain slips all the way to No.15. The overall fan favorite among Big Blue diehards entering the draft and the top linebacker in this year's pool, McClain would make for a perfect pairing for the G-Men. Gerris Wilkinson and Jonathan Goff are not the long-term answers at MLB and McClain can slide right in for the recently departed Antonio Pierce. Nick Saban referred to McClain as his "on-the-field coach" in Tuscaloosa. The Giants' defense could use a young leader in their linebacker corps to do the same in the Meadowlands.

16. TENNESSEE TITANS

Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida

With Pro Bowl DE Kyle Vanden Bosch off to Detroit via free agency, Keith Bulluck's future uncertain, and Jevon Kearse and Nick Harper's days as Titans looking like things of the past, defense, defense and defense appear to be the major points of emphasis in Tennesse this offseason. Veteran DE Jason Babin, LB Will Witherspoon and CBs Rod Hood and Tye Hill have all been signed, but some young depth is needed across the D-line, as well. Despite just seven career starts at South Florida, Pierre-Paul is a tremendous physical specimen who could make an impact immediately in Chuck Cecil's 4-3 scheme. Type his name into YouTube and you'll see absurd athletic ability, uncanny speed for a man his size. That and back flips. Yes, he does back flips. Scary stuff.

17. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

Charles Brown, OT, USC

The 49ers have earmarked at least one of their first-round draft picks on improving the O-line. Brown, though you might not be reading it everywhere, is quickly rising up draft boards and may end up going in the top 15. The man who protected Mark Sanchez's blind side at USC needs to bulk up a bit, but he has great experience and solid technique. Joe Staley's locked up until 2017. Brown would serve as the bookend on that Niners offensive line. Jimmy Clausen, meanwhile, sings the Paul Simon song, "Slip, Slidin' Away."

18. PITTSBURGH STEELERS

Maurkice Pouncey, C/G, Florida

All the pre-draft talk of the Steelers trading Ben Roethlisberger is just that -- talk. He'll be in Pittsburgh this season and, barring a suspension, under center on opening day. Another issue off the field and Big Ben may be a goner. In the meantime, the Steelers need to give him some protection up front. The Pittsburgh running game struggled mightily in '08 and '09, and the offense gave up too many sacks. These are signs of an ailing and failing offensive line. Capable of playing either the guard or center position -- Pouncey manned both at Florida -- one half of the Gators' Pouncey Brothers could be a top 20 selection for the Steelers. I've seen Pouncey pegged as high as No.11 to Denver. No.18 to Pittsburgh sounds about right.

19. ATLANTA FALCONS

Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan

With 2007 first-round pick Jamaal Anderson likely moving to defensive tackle, the Falcons could be looking to improve their pass rush off the edge with the 19th overall pick. John Abraham, who had only 5.5 sacks last season isn't getting any younger, either. If he's still on the board at No.19, look for Atlanta to go with Michigan defensive end Brandon Graham. The hard-working Senior Bowl MVP has been described as a lunch pail guy who just gets the job done. He led the nation in sacks a year ago.

20. HOUSTON TEXANS

Ryan Mathews, RB, Fresno State

By opting not to pursue veterans Thomas Jones, Larry Johnson, Willie Parker, LaDanian Tomllinson, and Chester Taylor in free agency, running back remains a giant question mark on the Houston depth chart. The highest the Texans have selected a running back in the draft has been in the third round with Vernand Morency in '05 and Steve Slaton in '08. Look for them to grab Fresno's Ryan Mathews if he's on the board at 20. They'll take a corner in round two. With Dunta Robinson now in Atlanta, there are needs at that position, too.

21. CINCINNATI BENGALS

Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma

Despite a postseason berth and an AFC North division title, the Cincinnati passing offense was a complete dud last year. Carson Palmer, the man my guy Adam Schein refers to as "The Human Jugs Machine," was a mediocre QB. The reason? A lack of reliable targets. Tight end is certainly a position of need. Last year's third-round pick, Chase Coffman, didn't produce the way Bengals front office brass hoped he would in his rookie season. Gresham missed all of '09 with a knee injury, but looked tremendous in his Pro Day workout last month. He could be an opening day starter and an immediate favorite target for Palmer in Cincy.

22. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

Sergio Kindle, DE/LB, Texas

So far this offseason, the Patriots have re-signed Pro Bowl nose tackle Vince Wilfork, 10-sack linebacker Tully Banta-Cain and top corner Leigh Bodden. They're still looking for a premier 3-4 OLB that can contribute right away. Kindle could be the guy. The classic example of a 'tweener," Kindle's pass-rushing ability and coverage skills sync up well with Bill Belichick's 3-4 scheme. Kindle ran a 4.71 40 and made an unheard of 57 plays behind the line of scrimmage while at Texas. He'd be a great fit in New England. He's had some off-field issues, but has come around in the last year. He can go as high as No.11 to Denver. I think he's going 22 to New England.

23. GREEN BAY PACKERS

Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland

Yes, he's only started 17 collegiate games. And sure, he was never voted to an All-ACC team at Maryland. And of course, his technique reveals a raw, unproven question mark. That said, if he's sitting there at No. 23, Ted Thompson's going to have a hard time passing up on this year's combine workout warrior. At 6-foot-6, he's capable of running a 4.78 40 and bench pressing 225 pounds 34 times, which makes Campbell's upside insane. The Packers' offensive tackles are beyond long in the tooth. Campbell presents Aaron Rodgers a franchise left tackle to grow old with.

24. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES

Mike Iupati, OG/OT, Idaho

Hello? NFL? Does anyone want this Jimmy Clausen fella? My second-rated QB is still on the board, barring any trades, by the time Philadelphia's on the clock at 24. Could the Eagles be a destination for the former Notre Dame captain? Probably not. Philly's certainly going to look a little different in 2010. The offense loses longtime stars Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook (amongst others), while the defense will be without former starters Sheldon Brown, Chris Gocong, Darren Howard, Sean Jones, Chris Clemons, Jason Babin and Will Weatherspoon. The interior of the offensive line was downright embarrassed by the Cowboys in Week 17 and the wild-card round of the playoffs and remains a major sore spot. Iupati would be an immediate upgrade at guard and could eventually learn to play the tackle spot. Iupati fills a need and is a great value pick at 24.

25. BALTIMORE RAVENS

Jared Odrick, DE/DT, Penn State

The Ravens have the fewest draft picks among AFC North teams this year with just five selections. Those picks are: first round (25th overall), second round (57th), fifth round (156th and 157th) and sixth round (194th). The Ravens traded their third- and fourth-round picks to Arizona for receiver Anquan Boldin and their seventh-round pick went to Tampa Bay in a 2009 trade for defensive end Marques Douglas. With just five picks, look for Baltimore to focus on finding players that can contribute right away and fill glaring needs. Though Baltimore ranked first in the NFL in rush defense in 2009, Dwan Edwards and Justin Bannan will be elsewhere in 2010 and Kelly Gregg turns 34 next season. A stop-gap defensive tackle who can play right away makes sense. Odrick, the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year in 2009, is a tireless worker who could play either inside or outside at the next level. His professionalism and on-field production fits the character of the business-like Baltimore defense.

26. ARIZONA CARDINALS

Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame

Hey, why the heck not? After an offseason that saw Kurt Warner retire, Karlos Dansby sign with Miami, Antrel Rolle join the Giants and Anquan Boldin traded to Baltimore, the Cardinals have needs all over the field. Neither Derek Anderson nor Matt Leinart have the fans thinking playoffs. Coach Ken Whisenhunt's a proven quarterbacks guru who groomed Ben Roethlisberger, and the Cardinals have four of the first 88 picks to address other needs. At 26, Arizona takes the cards they're dealt and rolls the dice on a kid who threw 29 touchdowns and just four interceptions behind an offensive line devoid of NFL prospects. It's nuts. It's crazy. Hey, I love Jimmy Clausen as an NFL quarterback prospect. And if things shake out as they do here, I love him even more as a guy with a major chip on his shoulder down in Arizona.

27. DALLAS COWBOYS

Roger Saffold, OT/OG, Indiana

The Flozell Adams Era is officially done in Dallas. Drafted in 1998 as a second-round selection, Adams was a fixture in Dallas for 12 seasons on the Cowboys' offensive line. Mark Colombo will work one tackle spot in 2009, while promising youngster Doug Free is the apparent starter at the other one. Beyond Colombo and Free, four-year veteran reserve Pat McQuistan is the only other veteran currently on the roster with experience at tackle. Saffold is rapidly rising up draft boards. He was a standout at the combine and the East-West shrine game. A surprise to some, he'll add some depth to the Dallas offensive line. He'd be the first offensive lineman taken by Dallas in the first round since 1989.

28. SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

Jahvid Best, RB, California

Best ran a 4.35 40 at the Combine and bench pressed 225 pounds an impressive 18 times. He opted not to run at Cal's recent Pro Day but that fact shouldn't ding his draft stock whatsoever. Lingering concussion concerns from a bizarre 2009 injury in which he flipped and landed on his head very well might, though. He has been cleared by one of the nation's leading concussion specialists and was actually given the OK to play in Cal's bowl game, but he opted not to suit up. Best has first-round talent. At No. 28 he'd be quite a dazzling player to pair with Darren Sproles in the San Diego backfield. Look for the Chargers to grab him if he's available, then to pick up a DT with the 40th pick.

29. NEW YORK JETS

Terrence Cody, DT, Alabama

This one hasn't changed since February. I've had Cody pegged to the Jets for months because it just makes too much sense. Kris Jenkins is coming off an injury, isn't getting any younger and Rex Ryan's 3-4 scheme simply suits Cody perfectly. Mount Cody weighed in at Alabama 's recent pro day at a respectable 348 pounds -- 22 pounds less than he did at the Senior Bowl -- and demands attention from multiple interior offensive linemen. He is an absolute clog in the middle and a 3-4 defense dream at NT. If Buffalo, Miami, San Diego, and Baltimore all pass on him, the Jets front office will be very pleased to see him slip all the way to 29. Jets fans, always the most vocal at Radio City Music Hall, might respond with gasps and horror. They'd be wrong to do so. If he doesn't eat himself out of the league, Cody is going to make for a very nice NFL defensive tackle.

30. MINNESOTA VIKINGS

Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers

With Cedric Griffin banged up, Antoine Winfield battling injuries and not much depth beyond them on the roster, look for Minnesota to grab a top-flight cornerback if there's one left on the board. The way this draft plays out, four of my top five rated corners -- McCourty, Boise's Kyle Wilson, Alabama's Kareem Jackson, and Florida State's Patrick Robinson -- should be sitting there at No.30. I've gone back and forth on which of the four players I have as my second-rated corner, but I think the physical McCourty is the guy who fits Minnesota's defense best. He's also a fearless return man on special teams.

31. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS

Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri

The Colts will look to bolster their offensive and defensive lines in the draft, but could use a top flight linebacker talent, as well. Weatherspoon, who I previously had going as high as No.15 to New York, can be that guy. A 239-pound producer that has a high football IQ, runs a 4.6 40 and recorded more than 400 tackles in his college career, he's capable of producing right away at the next level. He also squats 770 pounds and was one of the bigger personalities at both the Senior Bowl and the combine. The Colts return just about everyone from their 2009 AFC Championship squad. The addition of Weatherspoon would make them even better.

32. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS

Everson Griffen, DE, USC

Defensive end was a need in New Orleans even before the recent departure of Charles Grant. Griffen, the first true freshman to start at defensive end for USC in decades, played both DE and LB while under Pete Carroll. Truly a physical specimen, consistency was his biggest issue in college. Joining fellow ex-Trojans Reggie Bush and Sed Ellis in New Orleans, look for the super freak to add some much needed pass-rushing ability to the defending champs' front 7.
