With the 162cd pick of the 2010 draft, The Indianapolis Colts select:

A.J. Edds OLB, Iowa

Finally, INDY gets a real SAM LB that can cover TE's, Play the run and Passing lanes, and can be a factor in the nickel packages. Edds may never be a superstar, but he is exactly the type of player INDY covets. He is a Physical Big Ten player with the ability to start and impact the passing game right away and play ST's.

Pick made @ 7:24 pm Eastern time.

With the 33rd pick in the 5th round (164 overall), the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Armanti Edwards, QB/WR/RB/KR, Appalachian State



Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 192 pounds
40 time: 4.41

Analysis from Pro Football Weekly:

Notes:
Has a daughter. Nicknamed "Money." Also played basketball as a prep. Wanting to play quarterback, turned down scholarship offers from BCS conference schools who viewed him as a receiver. Father, Freddie, is serving a 30-year prison sentence after being convicted of shooting and killing a man over a poker game in 2005. (Freddie claims the gun discharged when the victim grabbed the gun barrel.) The incident occurred during Armanti's senior high school season, at which point he nearly quit. As a true freshman for ASU in 2006, he opened the season as the backup and learned of his father's sentencing immediately following the team's first game. Earned the starting job two weeks later and never relinquished it. Started the final 13 games and completed 167-of-274 pass attempts (60.9 percent) for 2,251 yards with 15 touchdowns and 10 interceptions. Also rushed 188 times for 1,153 yards (6.1-yard average) and 15 TDs. Sprained his right knee against Georgia Southern but did not miss a start. Won a national championship for a second consecutive season in '07 after starting all 11 games played and passing 148-222-1,948-17-7 (66.7) while leading the team with 237-1,588-21 (6.7) on the ground. Sprained, and chipped a bone in, his left (throwing) shoulder during a preseason scrimmage but still managed to spearhead a road upset of Michigan in the season opener. Despite aggravating the injury during the contest, Edwards accounted for 289 total yards (227 passing, 62 rushing) with four TDs and directed a seven-play, 69-yard drive in the final two minutes that set up the game-winning field goal. After sitting out two games, he re-aggravated the shoulder against Wofford and missed two more contests. Had a career day in the semifinals against Richmond, piling up 495 total yards (313 rushing, 182 passing) and seven TDs (four rushing, three passing). His single-game rushing total is the highest ever by a I-AA quarterback. During the Mountaineers' playoff march (four games), Edwards amassed 1,387 yards of total offense (727 passing, 660 rushing) and 16 TDs. The Walter Payton Award winner (top player in I-AA) in '08, Edwards started all 13 games played, tossing 196-306-2,902-30-9 (64.1) with 193-941-11 (4.9) on the ground. Was held in check by LSU, as he managed just 13-31-155-1-0 passing, though he was outstanding in the national semifinals once again, racking up 481 total yards (433 passing, 48 rushing) and five TDs (four passing, one rushing) against South Carolina State. Tweaked an ankle against Presbyterian and suffered a hip pointer against Elon that sidelined him against Western Carolina. Had arthroscopic right knee surgery in January '09. Missed much of training camp and the season opener in '09 after he cut his right foot in a freak lawn-mowing accident on Aug. 5, when he was pulling a mower up a wet hill and slipped, requiring more than 35 stitches to keep his pinky toe. Had another outstanding season, throwing for 257-378-3,291-12-7 (68.0) in 12 starts and rushing for 679 yards and 18 TDs. Is the only two-time winner of the Walter Payton Award and the only player in Division I history with at least 9,000 passing yards and 4,000 rushing yards. Has a 42-7 record as a starter. Team captain.

Positives:
Has a textbook over-the-top delivery and high release point for his size. Good arm strength and accuracy - can throw strikes downfield and drive the ball. Very quick and sudden - can pull a rabbit out of his hat and improvise on broken plays (see McNeese State) - continues scanning the field on the move and is field-fast and elusive when he tucks the ball and runs. Experienced, four-year starter. Keeps his composure under duress and is not easily rattled. Highly competitive and driven. Tough runner. Outstanding production.

Negatives:
Worked exclusively out of the shotgun in a spread-option offense featuring a lot of predetermined, one-look reads and rarely stepped up in the pocket. Had a fair number of balls batted at the line and could struggle to find open passing lanes in the pros, given his lack of height. Throws too many wobblers. Struggled against the speed of LSU's defense, and production is inflated from consistently facing marginal competition. Has a fragile build and a history of injuries, which are concerns - his foot will require close inspection. Is not a developed route runner and lacks experience fielding the ball as a returner.

Summary:
A dazzling southpaw, Edwards may never be more than an ideal backup and situational, specialty quarterback. Yet he is not a throwaway at the QB position; he has the run skills and creativity to project as a slot receiver and return man. Could spark an offense in specially designed packages that feature his playmaking ability. Injury history must be examined and could affect his draft status.

Pick made at:
7:50 a.m. Abu Dhabi time
11:50 p.m. Eastern
10:50 p.m. Central
9:50 p.m. Mountain
8:50 p.m. Pacific
7:50 p.m. Alaskan

With the 35th selection in round 5 (166 overall), the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Al Woods, DT, LSU



Height: 6' 4"
Weight: 309 lbs.
Arm Length: 36"
Hand Size: 11"
40 time: 4.97 seconds
Bench: 22 reps
Vertical: 37"
Broad Jump: 9' 01"
3-cone: 7.45 seconds

Overview:
Woods is a one-year starter with good size and strength. He lacks great initial quickness, speed and range as a defender but can be effective between the tackles when he plays with good pad level. He has strong hands when he utilizes them to jolt and restrict interior running lanes. He can be an effective bull rusher to push the pocket but needs to expand his pass-rush package with more counter moves. Woods has the size, strength and enough athleticism to be an effective run defender at the next level, but there are concerns about his ability to transition to the next level. His work ethic, technique, effort and durability likely will hinder his draft status in 2010.

Positives:
Tall and bulky with a wide base and good balance. Uses big strong hands to get inside and stifle blockers. He is difficult to move, eats up blockers, and clogs up running lanes. Has the strength to be a good bull rusher and collapse the pocket.

Negatives:
Lacks initial quickness and is not fast enough to track down ball carriers. Does not always play with good leverage and his pad level is high at times. Needs to improve his pass rush moves and overall technique. Carries too much body weight and struggles with his endurance. There are questions about his work ethic and maturity.

Pick made at:
12:54 p.m. Abu Dhabi time
4:54 a.m. Eastern
3:54 a.m. Central
2:54 a.m. Mountain
1:54 a.m. Pacific
12:54 a.m. Alaskan

The Minnesota Vikings and TwinCitiesBronco are now on the clock.

"Heady competitor who is as durable and hard-working as you'd like at the second level. Blue-collar, lunch-pail kind of player."

Maybe a strong side guy at some point. Should contribute on special teams.

With the 170th pick, first in the 6th round, the St. Louis Rams select....



Lonyae Miller, RB, Fresno State

Miller has good size and speed, along with few carries. He should make a good developmental back behind Stephen Jackson, and offer a change of pace guy with home run potential.

Quote:

He is not very interested in blocking when asked to stay in and pick up the blitz and is not as punishing a runner as he could be. Needs work on finishing his runs. He has enough wiggle to go with good speed and a good burst through the hole to warrant consideration as a late draft pick.

Strengths
Thickly built running back who explodes through holes. Possesses good top-end speed to break big runs when he finds a seam. Has fluid hips and the agility to slide down the line and make people miss in space. Worked in a two-back system and has fewer miles on his tires.

Weaknesses
Lacks the vision to consistently find running lanes. Does not have good patience and runs past his blockers at times. Stands up too tall and struggles to get yards after contact. Does not always finish runs to wear down a defense. Not a willing or effective blocker, despite his size.

With the 177th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft the St. Louis Rams select....



Rennie Curran, OLB, University of Georgia

Curran offers a lot of potential as a weakside OLB in Spags' 4-3 defense. He weighed in a little heavier than expected (at 235 instead of 229) and showed off better speed than expected at his pro day (tweaked hamstring when attempting the 40 at combine). He's an all around very good athlete who is downgraded based almost entirely on his height.

Quote:

Rennie is a short undersized linebacker that has been productive for the Bulldogs over the past three seasons. He has put up big numbers as a two year starter and is one of Georgia’s most active defenders. Rennie is quicker than fast and is best between the tackles. He plays hard but doesn’t have great range to the sideline. He is inconsistent with leveraging the ball as he doesn’t always take proper angles as the play unfolds. He understands route progressions and coverage schemes but again his lack of pure speed may make him a liability in this phase of the game. Rennie Curran maybe a better college player than NFL prospect in this year’s draft.

Strengths
Curran is the definition of a tough, gritty, competitive linebacker. He was highly-productive during his time at Georgia. He plays with great instincts when diagnosing against the run. Despite smaller stature, has been an extremely durable player. Is a solid tackler who can make plays in the open field.

Weaknesses
Curran really lacks size for the linebacker position. Also lacks great range and speed when attacking outside running plays. Can take inconsistent angles and occasionally takes false steps. Struggles at times in man-to-man coverage and when asked to drop deep into zone coverage.

Buffalo Bills Finally get their QB- Jarrett Brown - West Virginia

Analysis
Accuracy: Needs work to make all of his throws on time and on the numbers. Has thrown accurately down the seam at times, but many of his completions are swing passes or other short patterns. Tends to throw low, preventing his receivers from making plays after the catch. Doesn't get deep throws over the outside shoulder.

Arm Strength: Very good arm strength, and can make all of the NFL throws. Able to throw a rope across the field or let it loose downfield. Ball doesn't always come out of his hand clean, however, wobbling and taking away some of its zip. Downfield throws float when he tries to lob them in instead of maintaining trajectory.

Setup/Release: Stands poised and tall in the pocket, holding the ball at shoulder height and releasing it high. Usually in shotgun formation, and must learn to take snaps from center and drop back. Smooth footwork in the pocket; able to step up to create space. Good quickness on his release. Strong enough to unload when in the grasp of a defender.

Reading Defenses: Decision-making improved in 2009, but he relies too much on his arm strength to squeeze passes into tight coverage and puts up prayers downfield instead of throwing the ball away. Poised in the pocket but is more of a reactive playmaker than reader of defenses who goes through progressions or searches out and takes advantage of match-ups.

On the Move: Makes nice touch throws on the run, even 30 or more yards downfield. Keeps his shoulders square, and has good zip on the ball when running to his right. Will also take chances on the edge, relying on his athleticism and arm strength to squeeze balls into tight spaces. Excellent mobility inside and out of the pocket; able to avoid oncoming defenders in the pocket and scramble for well more than a first down. Has some elusiveness in the open field, and is able to cut back to avoid tackles and get to the sideline. Has a strong stiff-arm in space. Tough runner in goal-line situations with the size and power to convert short-yardage plays. Needs to keep his eyes downfield once pressured instead of tucking and running.

Intangibles: Tough player who doesn't rattle easily; willing to take hits or give them out when he leaves the pocket. Teammates bought into his ability early despite his lack of playing time entering last season. Earned his diploma.

NFL Comparison: Tarvaris Jackson, Vikings

Oh, I will.

With the 13th selection in the 6th round (182 overall), the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Trevard Lindley, CB, Kentucky



Height: 5' 11"
Weight: 183
40 time: 4.51
Vertical: 38.5"
Bench: 9 reps
3-cone: 6.81

Overview:
Lindley was banged up some in his senior season (therefore production is down) but for the most part has been a durable defender for the University of Kentucky over his career. Lindley is a slender built player with great athleticism that was the Wildcats most active coverage defender. Not a physical run support player but is a willing tackler and leverages the ball well. Solid reactor in zone and man schemes to jump patterns and make plays on the ball. Lindley isn’t an elite corner but has the tools to develop into a solid contributor as a corner in sub packages (nickel back) as well as special teams.

Strengths:
Lindley is an athletic corner with great height, long arms and good speed. He’s an instinctive performer in both coverage and coming up in run support. Competitive player who wasn’t afraid to square-up in man against No. 1 targets in the SEC. Lindley had a productive college career, earning all-conference recognition, playing against elite competition.

Weaknesses
Lindley lacks the necessary weight and bulk to match up against physical receivers and tackle power backs where he isn’t always physical in perimeter run support. In coverage, he’s inconsistent to transition and lacks great recovery speed and burst and can be beaten deep.

With the 186th pick the Cleveland Browns select Kam Chancellor, S, Virginia Tech


6'3", 231 lbs.

Chancellor has been a very productive safety for the Hokies over the past three years. He has an outstanding combination of size and strength for the position. Chancellor is more of a box safety in that he is much better defending the run than in coverage. He has decent range off the hash and could be effective in combination zone schemes but may be a liability in pure man coverage schemes. He uses his hands well to ward off blockers when filling the alley and flashes to make the big hit. Chancellor is inconsistent with his angles and instincts with the ball in the air. Chancellor is a good football player and should be effective in the right system at the next level. Chancellor should contribute early as a special teams player and a goal line safety.

Strengths
Chancellor has outstanding size for the safety position. Plays with great strength and has the toughness needed to consistently help up in the box in run support. Has been a highly productive player. Durability is not a concern. Exhibits a really impressive motor, refuses to be blocked and plays hard through the whistle.

Weaknesses
Chancellor can play over aggressive at times, take poor angles and is susceptible to play fakes. Taller player who could improve his pad level. Needs to be lower in his back peddle. Is more comfortable in the box and doesn’t possess the coverage skills, ball skills and instincts to be consistently relied upon against the pass.

With the 19th pick in the 6th round (188 overall) of the OM Mock Draft, the Pittsburgh Steelers select:

Clifton Geathers, DE, South Carolina



Height: 6' 8"
Weight: 299 lbs.
Arm span: 37.75"
Hand span: 11"
40 time: 4.98 seconds
Vertical: 36"
Bench: 26 reps

Notes:
Father, Robert Sr., played for the Buffalo Bills in the 1980s; brother, Robert Jr., is a defensive end for the Cincinnati Bengals; and uncle, Jumpy, played defensive tackle for the Saints, Redskins, Falcons and Broncos (1984-1996). Clifton was a highly recruited two-way lineman who originally committed to Georgia, but failed to qualify and attended Hargrave Military Academy (Va.) in 2006. Joined the Gamecocks in '07 and saw very limited action in 10 games, recording two tackles, zero for loss and zero sacks. In '08, played all 13 games, (one start) and tallied 29-3.5-2.5 with one forced fumble. Was arrested in August '09 and charged with public drunkenness, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct for his involvement in a fight outside a nightclub that left him with a cracked right orbital bone. Served a one-game suspension, then played in the next 12 games -- starting the final eight at left end Notched 41-8.5-3.5 with one pass batted down and two forced fumbles.

Positives:
Very rare arm length and overall size. Unique athletic ability -- has a 36-inch vertical jump -- for a 300-pounder. Country strong and can push the pocket with a strong bullrush move and anchor fairly well against the run. Has NFL pedigree.

Negatives:
Playes too tall and does not sink his hips and anchor well against the run. Relies too much on his upper-body strength. Questionable instincts -- is often late to locate the ball. Does not play to his size -- plays more like a 260-pounder and does not protect his feet or use his rare arm length to lock out and keep defenders off his frame Plays small and cannot get off blocks. Leaky tackler. Takes plays off and motor doesn't consistently churn. Marginal production.

Summary:
A big, raw base end who is still figuring it out and will take some time to adapt to the speed and complexity of the NFL game. Developmental prospect with a chance to become a functional pro once he fills out his frame but always could be at a natural leverage disadvantage.

Pick made at:
11:05 p.m. Abu Dhabi time
3:05 p.m. Eastern
2:05 p.m. Central
1:05 p.m. Mountain
12:05 p.m. Pacific
11:05 a.m. Alaskan

The Atlanta Falcons and jhat01 are now on the clock.
