GCobb.com 2010 NFL Mock Draft Number 13

I’m confident that the Eagles are going to try to move up and get Texas safety Earl Thomas, but his stock is rising and it might make it impossible for them to get him.

They’re intent on getting help in their secondary which could mean getting a safety in the first and corner in the second or vice versa.

I don’t think they’ll be willing to go into the top ten to get Thomas, so I have them grabbing Alabama cornerback Kareem Jackson with the 24th pick here.

Jackson is a young Sheldon Brown who will get physical with wide receivers and come up and tackle when appropiate.  The Birds know that the big, physical receivers in the NFC East will require that they have complete football players at the corner position.

No way the Raiders are taking a OG. They have lost all faith in Jamarcus and will draft Clausen. Once they do I will be on here to brag to everyone like I TOLD YOU SO.

If we can’t/don’t move up to get a safety I can easily see them getting a O-lineman or CB. I don’t want Kareem Jackson. Another small CB. Can we get someone over 6 feet tall. Seriously. We are undersized in too many positions on defense and we need some big physical guys out there.

scorp I agree about our size on defense. With the tall recievers in the NFC east we need to have some taller guys that can play in the defensive backfield. As we all know we usually trend towards the smaller guys on the DL, so drafting another Hobbs height CB isn’t something I would want to see either.

Kareem Jackson should be the pick if he is there at 24. Kyle Wilson if he is still on the board, but I don’t think he will be. Kareem is a physical and corner and has the height to play corner in the NFL. There really aren’t many corners over 6′ tall.

I have a feeling that the Raiders will be taking Iupati at 8. It feels just like last year when someone leaked their love for DHB 2 days before the draft, the same thing happened with Iupati this year. If they take him, the Steelers will take Pouncey at 18. I don’t think there’s any way that Thomas is gone that early. We have the ammo move up to 12-15 if he is around then. We would even still have the ammo to move up to the bottom of the first round from 37 if the right guy is still on the board. I will be disappointed if we walk away from the 1st round without Earl Thomas or Kyle Wilson. The FO needs to do what they have to do, within reason, to get the guys that they know can contribute immediately at positions of need. With Roseman being all young and overly eager to prove himself, I could see him trying to pull something wild off in his first draft; or I could see him trading out of this first and second round and stockpiling 3rds so he doesn’t have to pay high round picks. We shall see.

24, 55th, 70 to move up to 12’ish and grab Earl Thomas. Then with the 37th and 87th move up to the Saints pick at 32 and grab Kareem Jackson. That would fill both holes on our team.

crohn, you’re right which is why I rather take someone else with the 24th than another undersized player. Let’s face it, our defense has been filled with guys who are undersized and I rather see them get a good offensive lineman than get another undersized CB with the 24th. You can get a good CB in the 2nd round.
