his 2nd one has some curveballs (especially kyle wilson going #8 to raiders).

if joe haden and earl thomas are both sitting there when SF picks before us, i will be feeling real good.

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.
