I spent this afternoon hanging out with the top draft prospects at New York's Central Park. Check in later this week for my video coverage, but for now take a look at my mock draft...

1 St. Louis Rams
Rams
SAM BRADFORD, QB, Oklahoma
The Rams have no quarterback after releasing Marc Bulger. Bradford is the best QB on the board and will fit in well for the Rams.
 
2 Detroit Lions
Lions
NDAMUKONG SUH, DT, Nebraska
Detroit went with offense last year, drafting Matthew Stafford first overall. But their defense was poor. Suh has the ability to be a great pass rusher and run stopper for the Lions.
 
 
3 Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Buccaneers
GERALD McCOY, DT, Oklahoma
I was thinking the Bucs might take Eric Berry to continue their run of great defensive backs. But they need help on the defensive line, and McCoy is the best one after Suh. 
 
 
4 Washington Redskins
Redskins
TRENT WILLIAMS, OT, Oklahoma
He did a great job protecting Sam Bradford at Oklahoma, and now he gets a chance to block for another great one in Donovan McNabb.
 
5 Kansas City Chiefs
Chiefs
ERIC BERRY, S, Tennessee
He may be the best safety in the league for years to come. The Chiefs will hit a home run with this pick.
 
6 Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks
DERRICK MORGAN, DE, Georgia Tech
He'll bring a lethal pass rush threat to a Seattle defense that needs an extra boost.
 
7 Cleveland Browns
Browns
RUSSELL OKUNG, OT, Oklahoma State
As much as Cleveland needs a quarterback, I don't think Jimmy Clausen is the right fit. They'll take the best player left on the board, and that's Okung.
 
8 Oakland Raiders
Raiders
BRYAN BULAGA, OT, Iowa
He's a heavy yet athletic blocker and will aid an Oakland passing game that has not reached its potential.
 
9 Buffalo Bills
Bills
JOE HADEN, CB, Florida
The speed he showed at Florida will be a great asset to take to Buffalo. He will be the best corner they've had since Nate Clements.
 
10 Jacksonville Jaguars
Jaguars
ROLANDO McCLAIN, LB, Alabama
The best linebacker in the draft, McClain is the kind of player the Jags have needed for a long time.
 
11 Denver Broncos
Broncos (from Bears)
MIKE IUPATI, G, Idaho
He's an intimidating lineman when it comes to run blocking. He'll be a great fit in Denver. All I know is I don't want to be the defensive player facing him!
 
12 Miami Dolphins
Dolphins
JASON PIERRE-PAUL, DE/OLB, South Florida
With the acquisition of Brandon Marshall, the Dolphins no longer need a wide receiver. Instead, they need someone to fill the shoes of Jason Taylor. Pierre-Paul might be the most athletic pass rusher in this class.
 
13 San Francisco 49ers
49ers
MAURKICE POUNCEY, C/G, Florida
He may be one of the more underrated linemen in the draft. His performance at Florida helped keep Tim Tebow safe and created plenty of running room for their multiple running backs.
 
14 Seattle Seahawks
Seahawks (from Broncos)
C.J. SPILLER, RB, Clemson
Morgan, followed by Spiller, will be two great additions for the Seahawks. Spiller will fill the gap that has been left in Seattle since Shaun Alexander faded away.
 
15 New York Giants
Giants
BRANDON GRAHAM, DE, Michigan
He's a very physical player and was at one of the best programs in college football. He has big shoes to fill as the Giants are still looking for someone to replace retired star Michael Strahan.
 
16 Tennessee Titans
Titans
EARL THOMAS, S, Texas
He and defensive tackle LaMarr Houston were a big reason why Texas played in the national championship game last year.
 
17 San Francisco 49ers
49ers (from Panthers)
JIMMY CLAUSEN, QB, Notre Dame
Maybe he'll turn around an offense that hasn't been able to throw effectively in recent years. He could bring the passing threat back to San Francisco.
 
18 Pittsburgh Steelers
Steelers
KYLE WILSON, CB, Boise State
Ever since disappointing pick Ricardo Colclough faded away, the Steelers have needed someone to step up and play aggressive at cornerback. Wilson and safety Ryan Clark will be a couple of hard hitters alongside Troy Polamalu.
 
19 Atlanta Falcons
Falcons
SERGIO KINDLE, DE/LB, Texas
Another defensive threat out of Texas. He will aid an aging John Abraham and bring youth to Atlanta's defense.
 
20 Houston Texans
Texans
ANTHONY DAVIS, OT, Rutgers
He will open up more holes for running back Steve Slaton, and maybe open the Texans' playoff chances.
 
21 Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals
JERMAINE GRESHAM, TE, Oklahoma
Despite missing all of 2009, he's still one of the biggest and baddest tight ends in the draft. He'll fit in well and catch a lot of passes from Carson Palmer.
 
22 New England Patriots
Patriots
JARED ODRICK, DT, Penn State
Penn State has produced some great defensive players. Odrick will help an aging Patriots D and replace Richard Seymour, who was traded to the Raiders last September.
 
23 Green Bay Packers
Packers
RYAN MATHEWS, RB, Fresno State
Ryan Grant has not put up consistent numbers over the past two years. Mathews could be an alternative for Green Bay.
 
24 Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles
SEAN WEATHERSPOON, LB, Missouri
He'll fill the spot Will Witherspoon played last year and aid Philly's pass rushers.
 
25 Baltimore Ravens
Ravens
DEMARYIUS THOMAS, WR, Georgia Tech
He's one of the best wide receivers in this draft class. His speed and versatility will make him an excellent target for Joe Flacco.
 
26 Arizona Cardinals
Cardinals
DAN WILLIAMS, DT, Tennessee
He may be a little overrated by some, but he played under Monte Kiffin, a very good defensive coach, at Tennessee. The Cards will need him to stuff the run after losing linebacker Karlos Dansby.
 
27 Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys
DEZ BRYANT, WR, Oklahoma State
Jerry Jones has a history of taking risks in the draft. This risk will pay off in the long run, as Bryant will aid Tony Romo.
 
28 San Diego Chargers
Chargers
JAHVID BEST, RB, California
Someone needs to step into L.T.'s shoes, and Best will provide some power while Darren Sproles provides the speed in the San Diego running game.
 
29 New York Jets
Jets
BRIAN PRICE, DT/DE, UCLA
He's a player who maybe under the radar, but he'll get the job done in New York.
 
30 Minnesota Vikings
Vikings
DEVIN McCOURTY, CB, Rutgers
The injuries to Antoine Winfield and Cedric Griffin may be a cause for concern for the Vikings. McCourty provides insurance for both of those players. He'll also receive great teaching from both veterans.
 
31 Indianapolis Colts
Colts
RODGER SAFFOLD, OT, Indiana
He joins Jeff Saturday and the Indy line to provide protection for Peyton Manning. He may also kick start the running game, blocking for Joseph Addai and Donald Brown.
 
32 New Orleans Saints
Saints
GOLDEN TATE, WR, Notre Dame
The Saints get a steal with this pick. Tate will be a strong receiver for Drew Brees and will provide a talented target for years to come.

Why isn't Aaron Rodgers up there? He has one of the lowest QB ratings so what? He gets sacked countless numbers of times, so what? Im just joking. If you think about it Brett Favre would be better for your mock draft!

You are lucky you got to see them in person.I have always wanted to do that.

dez is the bez

OSU rocks!

Yeah, in your dreams kid. Suh or Bradford could take him.

Alright, why is Williams so low and after Odrick? Why would the Browns pick Okung, they JUST drafted Joe Thomas? Demaryus Thomas is a project, and the Ravens would much rather have Bryant. Bills also just got Leodis McKelvin. Falcons could really use Dan Williams, they just let go of Grady Jackson this last season, and the middle of their D-Line needs a big boy to stop the run. Titans just spent a first round pick on a Safety, Micheal Griffin. Pouncey is better than Iupati, and even then, That's too early to pick an interior lineman. They might trade down a little then get Pouncey, but i dont see Iupati as a Bronco.

I think the first three are mixed up. Russel Okung should be in there somewhere. Also, the Browns will draft a QB.

Where is tebow? plz tell me and sports center 3 how come u don't like him?

haha t-bow isnt in there! not that i think he wont go in the first round, but that i HOPE he doesnt go in the first draft.

i TOTALLY AGREE, BUT NOT SO MUCH WITH THE WIZ'S
