2010 NFL Mock Draft: Round Three

Last update: Thursday, April 22, 2010. 4:35 P.M. - Major changes in all rounds.
Next update: Live 2010 NFL Draft Grades minutes after all 255 picks!

This order is based on the official 7-Round 2010 NFL Draft Order and the NFL Strength of Schedule.

  1. St. Louis Rams: Brandon LaFell, WR, LSU
    I don't think Billy Devaney was messing around when he said that his team needs players who can score touchdowns. With Sam Bradford presumably the Rams' franchise quarterback, Devaney will have to provide him with a legitimate No. 1 target. Laurent Robinson, Donnie Avery and Brandon Gibson are all decent receivers, but someone like Brandon LaFell could really open up this offense.

  2. Detroit Lions: Navorro Bowman, OLB, Penn State
    Ernie Sims was traded to the Eagles. Assuming DeAndre Levy will play in the middle, the Lions will need to find a new weakside linebacker. Right now, their top options at the position are Landon Johnson and Jordon Dizon.

    Navorro Bowman is a high second-round prospect who falls because of character concerns and the reduced number of 4-3 teams in this league.

    Pick change; previously Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, CB

  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Dominique Franks, CB, Oklahoma
    The Buccaneers are really hurting for cornerback help across from Aqib Talib. They'll have plenty of talented corners to choose from in Rounds 2 and 3.

  4. Kansas City Chiefs: Jason Worilds, DE/OLB, Virginia Tech
    The Chiefs' pass rush has gotten a lot better, but that's not saying much because they finished with 10 sacks last year. They concluded the year with 22, but only 13.5 if you take away Tamba Hali's total.

  5. Oakland Raiders: Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, CB/KR, IUP
    Happy times in Oakland - the Raiders just landed another great player. Akwasi Owusu-Ansah runs a 4.32 40 at 6-0, 207. Owusu-Ansah had five return touchdowns for Indiana of Pennsylvania in 2009. He'll be expected to score 10 special-teams touchdowns per season with that height-weight-40 combo.

    Pick change; previously Dorin Dickerson, CB/KR

  6. Philadelphia Eagles: Vladimir Ducasse, G/OT, UMass
    The Eagles had major problems keeping DeMarcus Ware, Anthony Spencer and Jay Ratliff out of the backfield. They'll need to find multiple upgrades on the offensive front in the 2010 NFL Draft.

    Pick change; previously John Jerry, G

  7. Cleveland Browns: Jamar Chaney, ILB, Mississippi State
    The Browns just traded for Chris Gocong, and according to general manager Tom Heckert, Gocong will be used at outside linebacker. With that in mind, inside linebacker needs to be addressed; David Bowens turns 33 in July, while D'Qwell Jackson may not be on this team beyond the 2010 season.

  8. Buffalo Bills: Tony Washington, OT, Abilene Christian
    This offseason, Bills general manager Buddy Nix spoke of his team's quarterbacks: "If they're good enough, they'll have a chance to be here ... It's hard to throw when you're lying on your back." Buffalo clearly needs help at left tackle.

    Tony Washington is a registered sex offender, as he reportedly had consensual sex with his biological sister when he was 16. That was seven years ago, however, and Washington is a really talented player.

    Pick change; previously Jared Veldheer, OT

  9. Miami Dolphins: Torell Troup, NT, Central Florida
    Jason Ferguson, 35, has been suspended for the first eight games of the season, and while Paul Soliai is a serviceable backup, but he's not a legitimate starter in this league. Help is needed at nose tackle. Torell Troup is the last of the second-tier nose tackles and could consequently be overdrafted in Round 2.

  10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Sean Lee, ILB, Penn State
    The Jaguars are really hurting at inside linebacker and would love to get a player of Sean Lee's caliber in the middle of Round 3.

    Pick change; previously Donald Butler, ILB

  11. Chicago Bears: Morgan Burnett, FS, Georgia Tech
    The Bears have had a hole at free safety for years. It's time to find a capable player at the position.

  12. New York Giants: Joe McKnight, RB, USC
    Brandon Jacobs struggled last year because of a lingering knee injury. Given the punishment Jacobs takes, this may be a recurring theme over the next couple of years. Besides, no one was able to effectively take on the role of Derrick Ward last year.

  13. Tennessee Titans: A.J. Jefferson, CB, Fresno State
    Corner is one of Tennessee's two greatest needs; the team has nothing across from Cortland Finnegan, as Nick Harper was continuously torched all season, especially in a crucial Christmas game against the Chargers.

    A.J. Jefferson has great athleticism (4.43 40, 44-inch vertical), so he could be high on Tennessee's draft board.

  14. Carolina Panthers: Lamarr Houston, DT, Texas
    Outside of Julius Peppers, no one on Carolina had more than five sacks. The Panthers really need help on the interior of their defensive line, especially with the losses of Ma'ake Keomeatu and Damione Lewis.

  15. San Francisco 49ers: Mitch Petrus, G, Arkansas
    Another offensive line upgrade for the 49ers; left guard David Baas has battled consistency and injury issues throughout his career.

    Pick change; previously Tony Washington, OT

  16. Denver Broncos: Pat Angerer, ILB, Iowa
    With Andra Davis gone, the Broncos will be looking for help at inside linebacker. Pat Angerer had 135 tackles in 2009, and Josh McDaniels loves players who produced in college.

  17. Houston Texans: Major Wright, FS, Florida
    Houston's primary goal is to beat the Colts. They came close twice this year, but ultimately failed because of missed field goals and sloppy turnovers. However, their inability to stop Peyton Manning didn't help matters. In those two contests, Manning was a combined 61-of-85, 562 yards, four touchdowns and three interceptions.

    Eugene Wilson was placed on injured reserve in the middle of the season. Wilson has now missed 29 games in the last four years. The Texans can no longer count on him.

  18. Pittsburgh Steelers: John Jerry, G, Ole Miss
    Right guard is a big position of need for the Steelers. John Jerry is a perfect fit for this blocking scheme.

    Pick change; previously Brandon Spikes, ILB

  19. Atlanta Falcons: Dekoda Watson, OLB, Florida State
    Mike Peterson, 34 in June, started off the season pretty well at weakside linebacker, but predictably wore down the stretch.

  20. Cincinnati Bengals: Anthony McCoy, TE, USC
    Cincinnati has absolutely nothing at the tight end position, and Carson Palmer could really benefit from having a potent weapon going over the middle of the field. According to FOX Sports, Anthony McCoy failed a marijuana test at the Combine, but this won't matter to the Bengals.

  21. Cleveland Browns: Perrish Cox, CB/KR, Oklahoma State
    The Browns traded for Sheldon Brown, but they still need depth at corner. Plus, Brown is 31 and won't last forever.

    Pick change; previously Amari Spievey, CB

  22. Green Bay Packers: Kevin Thomas, CB, USC
    Al Harris, who just turned 35, is coming off ACL surgery. Tramon Williams played well as a substitute, but with Harris and Charles Woodson getting, as Emmitt would say, "long in the mouth," the Packers need to look into obtaining a young corner.

    Pick change; previously Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, CB

  23. Philadelphia Eagles: A.J. Edds, OLB, Iowa
    The Eagles need help at the strongside and weakside linebacker positions. A.J. Edds will help with the former.

    Missing Include for PHPIncludeFailed_fsvwidget.php

  24. Arizona Cardinals: Jimmy Graham, TE, Miami
    With two third-round picks, the Cardinals can take a bit of a gamble here. Jimmy Graham is a raw tight end, but he has Antonio Gates-type upside.

  25. Arizona Cardinals: Corey Wootton, DE/DT, Northwestern
    Aside from the fact that Alex Carrington This is a value and insurance pick. Darnell Dockett wants a new contract, but the Cardinals don't appear interested in giving him one, basically repeating what they did with Anquan Boldin.

  26. Dallas Cowboys: Walter McFadden, CB, Auburn
    The search for Terence Newman's successor could begin here. Newman turns 32 on Sept. 4 and is no longer the dominant cornerback he once was. Corner depth is also needed for 2010.

    Pick change; previously Kevin Thomas, CB

  27. San Diego Chargers: Alex Carrington, DE/DT, Arkansas State
    Outside of Luis Castillo, who has missed 16 games the past four years, the Chargers don't have much at defensive end. Alex Carrington is too good to pass up on toward the end of Round 3.

  28. Cleveland Browns: Taylor Price, WR, Ohio
    Cleveland needs offensive playmakers. Brady Quinn struggled last year with his deep accuracy, but it's hard to put all of the blame on him because his top targets were Evan Moore, Mohamed Massaquoi and Mike Furrey.

  29. Minnesota Vikings: Mike Johnson, G, Alabama
    The Vikings really struggled to run the football last year. Both center John Sullivan and right guard Anthony Herrera underperformed in that department.

    Pick change; previously Navorro Bowman, OLB

  30. Indianapolis Colts: Donald Butler, LB, Washington
    The Colts need to shore up their depth at linebacker. Donald Butler, perhaps the top player available, seems like a good fit for their defense.

    Pick change; previously Donovan Warren, CB

  31. New Orleans Saints: Dorin Dickerson, TE, Pittsburgh
    You can't count on Jeremy Shockey playing a full season. Dorin Dickerson would give Sean Payton another toy to play with on offense.

  32. Cincinnati Bengals: Jacoby Ford, WR/KR, Clemson
    The Bengals signed Antonio Bryant, but they need another upgrade at wideout. The lightning-quick Jacoby Ford could really help open up Cincinnati's stale offense.

  33. Tennessee Titans: Carlton Mitchell, WR, South Florida
    Justin Gage and Nate Washington are OK, but they're not long-term secondary receivers. The Titans will love Carlton Mitchell's measurables.

  34. Atlanta Falcons: J.D. Walton, C, Baylor
    The Falcons will need a successor for the 33-year-old Todd McClure soon, and J.D. Walton is a great bargain at the bottom of Round 3.
