2010 NFL Draft NFC East


DALLAS: During the Offseason, the Cowboys cut Flozell Adams and Ken Hamblen, but basically signed no free agents. Their main needs for this year are OLT, WR, Safety, Cornerback and Nose Tackle. Doug Free has some skills and filled in fairly well for Adams last year when he was hurt, so a mid to late round tackle would make sense. Roy Williams showed that he could not get open, but Miles Austin looks to be a #1 WR. If America’s team stays put, look for them to draft a defense secondary player or a Nose Tackle with their first selection. If possible they should trade down and collect more picks in this deep draft and possibly add a mid round pick for the 2011 draft.

PHILADELPHIA: A major gutting of talent is all that can be said about the Eagles Roster. Gone are Donovan McNabb and Sheldon Brown. The Eagles need talent everywhere especially on the defensive side of the ball and on the O-line, major needs include: OG/OC, DE, CB, LB, Safety and a Backup QB. They did pickup Marlon Jackson from the Colts who they claim is a Safety, so that does minimize some of their defensive needs. If a playmaking Defensive End or a Cornerback (will Kyle Wilson last this long? Probably not) is available, look for them to pull the trigger. If they draft on the offensive side of the ball, look for them to add Maurkice Pouncey, from Florida who can play either guard or center, and add a lot of attitude to an extremely overpaid offensive line.

N. Y. GIANTS: The G-Men fell out of the playoffs last year due to a defense that seemed slow and overpowered from the beginning to the end of the season. Caughlin and company have several needs which include: OLT, ILB, and RB. If Rolando McClain (ILB from Bama) is available, they would most probably jump on him. If a premier OLT is available Reese might draft him. Best guess is that they draft the best MLB in round #1, but Reese sometimes does the unexpected. Look for the Giants to take the best player on their board which can come in and be an immediate difference maker. Something says the pick could be C. J. Spiller if he is there, otherwise, look for the MLB.

WASHINGTON: My My, My, how times have changed! There is definitely a new regime in town which includes: New Coach (M Shannahan), New QB (D McNabb), and 2 former Pro Bowl RBs (W Parker, and L Johnson). There may be 3-4 faces still on the team which may be moving on elsewhere, this would include: Albert Haynesworth and Clinton Portis. The needs for the team are many especially on the O-line (they need at least 2, but better 3 players here), D-line (they need at least 2 players here), and LB (both inside and out). The Skins are down to 4 picks and only have one pick in the 1st 3 rounds (Pick #4). They do have 2nd yr DE Jeremy Jarmon out of Kentucky who might get them a 4th or 5th round pick; trading Haynesworth would be optimal, but his price tag would be enormous, also look for Mike to flat out cut Portis at some point, since they do not seem to get along. Ideally, Washington should trade down in order to accumulate more picks, but the players that they really need are at their original position in Round #1. Shannahan absolutely must beef up the O-line. If they stay put, look for the Skins to draft Trent Williams or Russell Okung (the nod probably goes to Williams, based upon the fact that he better fits the zone blocking sheme). If they do trade down in order to get more picks, look for Brian Bulaga. Simply put, Washington needs 3-4 more solid draft picks in order to address all of their needs via the draft.
