WHICH PUTS US JUST THREE YEARS AWAY...:

First-round mock draft (Albert R. Breer, April 22, 2010, Boston Globe)

1. St. Louis

Sam Bradford, QB Oklahoma

Ndamukong Suh will be awfully tempting for Steve Spagnuolo, but in the end, the Rams need to take this step to move forward as a franchise. St. Louis took defensive linemen in the top half of the first round in 2007 and ’08. The selection of left tackle Jason Smith last year and presence of workhorse Steven Jackson readies the team to take pressure off a rookie quarterback.

2. Detroit

Ndamukong Suh, DT Nebraska


Jim Schwartz’s defenses in Tennessee were built front to back, and the acquisitions of tackle Corey Williams and end Kyle Vanden Bosch this offseason show the Lions are working to lay a similar foundation. Though Gerald McCoy may fit the coach’s “stop the run on the way to the quarterback’’ style better, this Cornhusker is too good to pass up.


...from this being universally considered the worst choice made in a draft since the Blazers passed up Michael.
