WBZ’s Karen Twomey has more.
The NFL combine has come and now gone. Making the puzzle a little clearer before college pro days start. Let's take a look at who the teams around the league may take come April. 1 - STL: Suh, Ndamukong - DT - Nebraska - Suh is a tremendous athlete. He would immediately improve the defensive line. The Rams were 27th in the league against the run. St. Louis was also 25th against the pass. Suh can help both. 2 - DET: Okung, Russell - T - Oklahoma St - The Lions need defense, but adding Okung will help Stafford in the long run. Defense can be addressed in round 2. 3 - TB: Berry, Eric - FS - Tennessee - Upgrades a poor Tampa secondary day 1. Might be the best player in this draft. Berry is a game changing safety. 4 - WAS: Bradford, Sam - QB - Oklahoma - Bradford added weight and draft stock. It's time to move on from Jason Campbell. If Okung is still on the board he could go here. the Redskins line is old. 5 - KC: Bulaga, Bryan - T - Iowa - Bulaga will upgrade the line, Pierre-Paul could land here as a replacement for Mike Vrabel. 6 - SEA: Spiller, C.J. - RB - Clemson - Seattle has needed a running back since Shawn Alexander left. Spiller can do multiple things for the team. 7 - CLE: Haden, Joe - CB - Florida - The Browns secondary is awful. Haden is t by far the best corner in the draft. 8 - OAK: McCoy, Gerald - DT - Oklahoma - Upgrading the defensive line is a big need. McCoy falls a bit after poor combine. 9 - BUF: Williams, Trent - T - Oklahoma - The Bills need to upgrade the line. Williams may be a great fit a right tackle. 10 - JAX: Morgan, Derrick - DE - Georgia Tech - The Jags pass rush was awful in 09' Morgan adds it. 11 - DEN: Mcclain, Rolando - ILB - Alabama - A stud in the middle for the national champion Alabama Crimson Tide. McClain will be a beast in the Denver 3-4 defense. 12 - MIA: Williams, Dan - DT - Tennessee - Miami needs a number 1 wide out. But Parcells loves a big man in the middle of the D. 13 - SF: Bryant, Dez - WR - Oklahoma St - Adding Bryant gives the 49ers two promising WR's. I think he falls due to questions about him showing up for practice and games on time. Bryant could fall further. 14 - SEA: Clausen, Jimmy - QB - Notre Dame - Clausen would be a great fit in the Seahawks pro style system. 15 - NYG: Price, Brian - DT - UCLA - Price adds an up grade of the defensive line. He will be a great pro. Had a great combine to help himself. 16 - TEN: Dunlap, Carlos - DE - Florida - The Titans DE's are old. Dunlap adds youth. 17 - SF: Kindle, Sergio - OLB - Texas - Kindle brings a pass rusher and upgrade to the linebacker core. Could line up on the line in certain situations as he did at Texas. 18 - PIT: Iupati, Mike - OG - Idaho - Iupati will take over where Alan Fanaca left off a few season ago. amazing run blocker. Gets to the second level well. 19 - ATL: Thomas, Earl - SS - Texas - Thomas will start day one in the Falcons terrible secondary. 20 - HOU: Benn, Arrelious - WR - Illinois - Benn would be a great addition to an offense that already has the best WR in Andre Johnson. 21 - CIN: Tate, Golden - WR - Notre Dame - The Bengals really like Tate. He will be a fantastic pro with sure hands. 22 - NE: Weatherspoon, Sean - OLB - Missouri - Weatherspoon is a leader who talks a lot and backs it up on the field. Something the Pats need. Brandon Graham could land here too. A pass rusher is a major need. 23 - GB: Campbell, Bruce - OT - Maryland - Offensive line is the number 1 issue for the Packers. Campbell boosted his stock at the combine. Second round talent finds himself in the first. 24 - PHI: Best, Jahvid - RB - California - With Westbrook gone, Best fits the type of back the Eagles like. But since they drafted LeSean McCoy a year ago, Taylor Mays could be an option here. 25 - BAL: Wilson, Kyle - CB - Boise St - Baltimore may trade back. A WR is number one on the list but a corner is needed as well. 26 - ARI: Mays, Taylor - FS - USC - Releasing Antrelle Rolle opened the door for Mays to land here if he is still available. Tight end Jermaine Gresham is a guy they could look at here as well. The Cardinals have wanted a pass catching tight end for years. 27 - DAL: Davis, Anthony - T - Rutgers - Dallas could also trade back. A left tackle is a needed if Davis or Campbell already selected. 28 - SD: Mathews, Ryan - RB - Fresno St. - Mathews stays in Cali after Tomlinson and Sproles are not coming back. 29 - NYJ: Graham, Brandon - OLB - Michigan - Rex Ryan would love to get a pass rusher like Graham. A WR is also an option. 30 - MIN: Cody, Terrence - DT - Alabama - Losing 16lbs at the combine helped him stay in the first round. Will take over when the 37 year old Pat Williams departs. Cornerback is need that could be addressed. Corner Patrick Robinson from Florida State could be the guy. 31 - IND: Odrick, Jared - DT - Penn State - Jared Odrick will start for the Colts in Indy. The only reason he goes late first round is questions about off field issues. If Odrick is off the board, Center Maurice Pouncey from Florida could be next on the list. 32 - NO: Bowman, Navorro - OLB - Penn State - The Saints need some help at linebacker. Bowman should start at weak side.
