2010 NFL Draft- First Round Winners and Losers

Winners

1. Green Bay Packers - The Packers got to fill a major need with a player that many had predicted to go at number five overall to the Kansas City Chiefs. Bulaga is the big, strong offensive lineman that the Packers desperately need. Adding Bulaga to the Packers just makes this already dangerous offense even more dangerous.

2. Oklahoma Sooners Football - If a star recruit is having a hard time deciding between a few schools, he can look at this draft for a good indication of where to go if he wants to make it to the next level. With Sam Bradford going first overall, Gerald McCoy going third overall, and Trent Williams going fourth overall, the recruiting for Bob Stoops just got a whole lot easier.

3. Tim Tebow - After all the criticism he received this offseason, Tim Tebow goes in the first round to a solid football team in the Denver Broncos. Not to mention he goes ahead of predicted top ten pick Jimmy Clausen. Now the hard part for Tebow, proving that Denver made the right decision.

Losers

1. Buffalo Bills - The Bills already had a solid running back duo in Marshawn Lynch and Fred Jackson, then they go out and get C.J. Spiller? This is a pass first league now; Jimmy Clausen should have been the pick here. Spiller is a great all-around player, and the Bills can be a great running team next year, but passing the ball is what wins games these days, not running it. (See Colts vs. Saints Superbowl)

2. San Diego Chargers - The Chargers trade up a plethora of spots, giving up a second rounder, and then take Ryan Mathews... who would have more than likely still been there at the Chargers original pick. Running back was probably San Diego's biggest need, sure, but taking a guy with limited upside way too early when they could have gotten him with keeping their second rounder was a colossal mistake by the Chargers.

Yes, Bob Stoops is probably laughing at home right now.
