Default First stab at a mock draft

First stab at a mock draft
F. Dale Lolley, the Observer-Reporter's veteran Steelers beat reporter, provides an inside view for Pittsburgh and the rest of the National Football League.

Now that we're in April, my thoughts turn completely to the NFL draft and that means it's time to start mock drafting.

Here's my first stab. It will change as more information pours in and teams continue to jockey around with their rosters - such as the McNabb trade and Bulger release.

But here we go:

1. St. Louis, Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma

2. Detroit, Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska

3. Tampa Bay, Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma

4. Washington, Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State - The McNabb trade assures the top four picks come from the Big 12

5. Kansas City, Brian Baluga, OT, Iowa - Eric Berry is very tempting here, but the Kansas City braintrust comes from New England, where they think safeties and corners can be had in later rounds.

6. Seattle, C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson

7. Cleveland, Eric Berry, S, Tennessee

8. Oakland, Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma - The third Sooner to go in the top 10.

9. Buffalo, Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee

10. Jacksonville, Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech - Even though they already signed Aaron Kampman to a big deal, the Jags need to pump up a pass rush that was dead last in 2009.

11. Denver, Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama

12. Miami, Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State

13. San Francisco, Joe Haden, CB, Florida

14. Seattle, Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame

15. N.Y. Giants, Mike Iupati, G, Idaho

16. Tennessee, Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida

17. San Francisco, Anthony Thomas, OT, Rutgers

18. Pittsburgh, Earl Thomas, S, Texas - The Steelers would probably prefer that Iupati fall to them, but that just hasnít been the way the draft has worked out for them in recent years.

19. Atlanta, Sean Weatherspoon, LB. Missouri

20. Houston, Ryan Matthews, RB, Fresno State

21. Cincinnati, Taylor Mays, S, USC

22. New England, Brandon Graham, DE/LB, Michigan

23. Green Bay, Jared Odrick, DT, Penn State

24. Philadelphia, Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State

25. Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma - Todd Heap isnít getting any younger and has always had problems staying healthy.

26. Arizona, Sergio Kindle, DE/LB, Texas

27. Dallas, Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland

28. San Diego, Terrance Cody, DT, Alabama - Itís too early for the Chargers to take an every-down running back and they need help at NT.

29. N.Y. Jets, Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech

30. Minnesota, Jahvid Best, RB, California

31. Maurkice Pouncey, C, Florida - Jeff Saturday will be 35 in a couple of months.

32. New Orleans, Everson Griffen, DE, USC
