1.St. Louis (1-15) – Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
2.Detroit (2-14) – Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
3.Tampa Bay (3-13) – Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
4.Washington (4-12) – Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma St.
5.Kansas City (4-12) – Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama
6.Seattle (5-11) – Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
7.Cleveland (5-11) – Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
8.Oakland (5-11) – Jason Pierre Paul, DE, South Florida
9.Buffalo (6-10) – Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
10. Jacksonville (7-9) – Joe Haden, CB, Florida
11. Denver (7-9) – Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma St.
12.Miami (7-9) – Brandon Graham, DE/OLB, Michigan
Graham, in my opinion, is the premiere 34 OLB prospect in this year’s draft and will bring a big time strong side presence to the Dolphins LB core. Graham is outstanding against the run, unstoppable when he heads up the field after the QB, and has a non-stop motor that Bill Parcells and co. will love. He’s the definition of a Parcells LB, and I think him and Cam Wake could make a lethal combo for years to come.
13.San Francisco (8-8) – CJ Spiller, RB, Clemson
14.Seattle - from Denver (8-8) – Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
15.New York Giants (8-8) – Earl Thomas, S, Texas

32.New Orleans (13-3) – Nate Allen, FS, South Florida
Round 2: 43. Miami – Cam Thomas, DT/NT, UNC
Miami will be lucky if Cam Thomas falls to them here in the second round, but if he does fall, 43 will be the end of said slide. Thomas is a run stuffing, strong, physical guy in the middle who loves to play in the trenches. He is also athletic enough to provide some penetration in the run and pass game, and gives you more than just a one dimensional type of NT. He reminds me a lot of Jason Ferguson.
Round 3: 74. Miami – Andre Roberts, WR, Citadel
Roberts is one of the more underrated, and lesser known prospects to come out this year. Roberts, coming out of small school Citadel, tore up Senior Bowl weekend, for Coach Sparano’s team, and displayed all the qualities necessary to be an immediate impact type of a guy. He is not a number 1 WR, and does not have the size/speed combo that Miami fans are looking for in a WR that is added to the roster, but he does have tremendous punt return ability, is extremely fluid in his catching and route running, and gets lots of YAC. The big key here though is that he really impressed at the Sr. Bowl, and like I said, playing for Coach Sparano.
Round 4: (12 in round). Miami – Thaddeus Gibson, DE/OLB, Ohio St.
Gibson might be one of the most NFL ready 34 OLB prospects in this year’s draft. He’s a good pass rusher with even better coverage skills. I think he would be a very good 3rd down LB who you can do a lot of things with.
Round 6: (4 in round). Miami – Sam Young, OT, Notre Dame
A huge, athletic OT with tons of experience. Look for Miami to spend a 6th round pick once again to look for that potential back-up to Big Jake on the left side. Gardener’s inability to crack the 53 man roster last season was disappointing, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him out of here by September. That said, the need for Jake’s back-up is desperate.
Round 6: (5 in round). Miami –Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, CB, Indiana
Miami is in need of another CB as Nate Jones left in FA. Ansah is a big corner that Parcells will like, but has good quickness and excellent ball skills and instincts as his 8 INT’s in his Junior year will attest to. He has great return ability as well, having 5 return TD’s in his career. He dominated D II ball, and would be a steal in the 6th round.
Round 6: (10 in round). Miami – Adrian Tracy, DE/OLB, Williams & Mary
Yet another OLB taken by Miami. I expect a full out competition for several spots next season, and the lack of pass rushers that Miami has is frightening. They need to add as many as possible in the draft. Tracy is a good pass rusher who was highly productive at the Division II level. He is a project, but one with some potential.
Round 7: (5 in round). Miami – Jonathon Amaya, S, Nevada
A big, hard hitting safety who can play either free or strong safety.
Round 7: (12 in round). Miami – Andre Neblett, DT/NT, Temple
Don’t expect Miami to just go with the one NT and that be the end of the story. Ferguson got suspended for the first 8 games of 2010, and Miami is going to need all the competition that they can get in order to get the most out of who they have on the roster until Ferguson comes back. Neblett is an athletic NT prospect that reminds me of Jay Ratliff.
Round 7: 252 overall (compensatory pick) – Jacques McClendon, OG, Tennessee
He’s a massive guard who would be a solid 4th round selection had he not been at Tennessee. Fits the mold of what Miami is looking for. If Miami does indeed trade Justin Smiley, look for them to draft a guard somewhere, probably even earlier than 252.
