Chris Brown's 2010 Mock Draft

Below is my fifth annual mock draft on As I state every year I don't claim to know any more than the collection of other media types who put a mock draft together. This is just how I think things could pan out in round one. My intent here, as always, is to be informative and entertaining. As we all know anyone who puts a mock draft together would be fortunate to nail a third of the actual selections.
