On Sunday, it appeared that the first five picks in the 2010 draft could unfold in several different ways.
Now, with the draft little more than two days away, it’s getting clearer.
Here are the first four names we think we’ll hear on Thursday night: (1) Sam Bradford; (2) Ndamukong Suh; (3) Gerald McCoy; (4) Trent Williams.
At No. 5, it’s unclear what will happen. The Chiefs, who have a left tackle in Branden Albert, could take Russell Okung and move one of them to the right side. Or they could take safety Eric Berry, at whom we’re told they’re taking a “hard look.” (Some think that the Chiefs wouldn’t use a top-five pick on a safety, no matter how good he may be.)
The other option is to dangle the pick to a team that may want to jump up and draft Okung or someone else.
