2010 Backward NFL Mock Draft: Round 1 - Picks 17-32

This is a Backward 2010 NFL Mock Draft where the best teams pick first and the worst teams pick last. What's the point of this? Well, there is no point - but I thought it would be fun to see how the 2010 NFL Draft would play out if Roger Goodell suddenly lost his mind and reversed the order of this weekend's draft. Go here to view my real 2010 NFL Mock Draft.

2010 Backward NFL Mock Draft: Round 1, Picks 1-16

  1. Tennessee Titans: Everson Griffen, DE, USC
    Our first identical pick. The Titans love really athletic players. Everson Griffen had an incredible Pro Day, running a 4.59 at 6-3, 268 pounds. He has massive upside and fills a big position of need.

  2. New York Giants: Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
    I'm not buying Rolando McClain to the Giants; he would just be a poor fit in Perry Fewell's Tampa-2 scheme. Sean Weatherspoon would be the more ideal option.

  3. Seattle Seahawks: Brandon Graham, DE, Michigan
    The Seahawks had 28 sacks in 2009, led by the retired Patrick Kerney's five. Their current ends right now are Lawrence Jackson, Robert Henderson and Chris Clemons. They really need to improve their pass rush.

  4. San Francisco 49ers: Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
    Identical pick No. 2. San Francisco has a huge hole at right tackle. Finding an upgrade here is the 49ers' greatest priority. Anthony Davis has some laziness/character issues, but it's nothing Mike Singletary can't fix.

  5. Miami Dolphins: Sergio Kindle, DE/OLB, Texas
    Sergio Kindle has the athleticism and size Bill Parcells loves in his prospects. Kindle would fill a huge hole as a pass-rusher; I wouldn't even be surprised if Miami considered him with the No. 12 pick.

  6. Denver Broncos: Maurkice Pouncey, C/G, Florida
    Knowing Josh McDaniels, Maurkice Pouncey is a strong possibility at No. 11. He would make a lot more sense at this point of the first round. Denver has nothing at center.

  7. Jacksonville Jaguars: Tim Tebow, QB, Florida
    Prior to the 2008 NFL Draft, Falcons fans e-mailed me and said they didn't want Matt Ryan. Before the 2009 NFL Draft, Lions fans expressed the same feelings about Matthew Stafford. Both fan bases learned to love their new signal-callers.

    The same Jaguar fans who don't want Tim Tebow will fall in love with him and support him after their team drafts him. It's just the way the NFL world works.

  8. Buffalo Bills: Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
    Mel Kiper believes the Bills will pass on Jimmy Clausen for Bryan Bulaga or perhaps even Anthony Davis. This would easily doom this franchise to at least five more years of ineptitude, and I find it hard to believe Buddy Nix would make such a foolish decision. Still, the fact remains that left tackle is a huge need. Bruce Campbell is a good fit for the blocking scheme.

  9. Oakland Raiders: Linval Joseph, NT, East Carolina
    Poor Al Davis misses on his great player by one pick. Curse you, Pete Rozelle and your Backward NFL Drafts! Fortunately for Undead Al, he can get another great player with this selection. That would be Linval Joseph, who somehow ran a 4.93 40 at 6-4, 319.

  10. Cleveland Browns: Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
    The Browns get their mini-Kyle Orton in both versions of the 2010 NFL Draft. Mike Holmgren might be crazy enough to trade into the bottom end of the first round to obtain Colt McCoy.

  11. Seattle Seahawks: Charles Brown, OT, USC
    Charles Brown is an option at No. 14 if the Seahawks don't draft a left tackle with the sixth pick of the real 2010 NFL Draft. Seattle really needs help at the position and must protect Clipboard Jesus.

  12. Kansas City Chiefs: Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
    Dez Bryant falls in both versions of the 2010 NFL Draft, but I don't think he would make it past the Chiefs in a backward order. Todd Haley really lamented about all of the team's dropped passes this past season. He'll be looking for a top-notch receiver this weekend.

  13. Washington Redskins: Rodger Saffold, OT, Indiana
    This would be a close call between Rodger Saffold and Ryan Mathews if Mike Shanahan ever drafted running backs in the first round. The Redskins must protect Donovan McNabb with an elite left tackle. I wouldn't call Saffold elite, but he should be good enough.

  14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Jerry Hughes, DE, TCU
    The Buccaneers love Jerry Hughes and wouldn't think twice about drafting him at No. 35. Unfortunately, he's not available in my real 2010 NFL Mock Draft, but he is here.

  15. Detroit Lions: Ryan Mathews, RB, Fresno State
    As we all know by now, the Lions take the best player available, and that would be Ryan Mathews at this juncture. Detroit is really desperate for a new running back because Kevin Smith likely won't be anywhere near 100 percent until mid-season.

  16. St. Louis Rams: Jared Odrick, DT, Penn State
    Remember when most mock drafts had the Rams selecting Ndamukong Suh? Ah, the good old days. Well, in some weird alternate universe where the worst teams pick last, St. Louis can finally have its stud defensive tackle.
