2010 Mock Draft 21-18

18. Minnesota Vikings - Tim Tebow, QB, Florida

Why not stir up some more controversy in Minnesota? Even if Brett Farve ends up signing with the Vikings, he won't be there long. Most talent evaluators think Tim Tebow is nothing more than a great college QB, but I think there are NFL teams that feel like me and think this guy is special. Yes he plays in a "college" system. And yes he has ridiculous running stats, but he is a very good passer and has an extremely underrated throwing arm. He isn't a good fit for every NFL offense, but he could be very successful in an offense like Minnesota's, that is based on handing off to Adrian Peterson and throwing short passes. He will rise on draft boards after another great college season and his eye-popping numbers at the combine. This guy is going to go down as the best college player of all time and he will succeed at the next level. If Josh Freeman landed in the first round, there is no question Tebow should. 

19. Buffalo Bills - C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson

Spiller is a dynamic player. He is a guy that needs the ball in creative ways, that get him in space and in one on one situations. He would be a great compliment to Marshawn Lynch. The Bills would also love to have him as the primary kick return, since Leodis McKelvin is going to be asked to be the team's No. 1 corner soon. The Bills have playmakers, and added one more that can do a little of everything wouldn't hurt. 

20. Atlanta Falcons - Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri

Weatherspoon is a tackling machine and has the potential to be a big-time playmaker in the NFL. The Falcons have a strong defense, and adding a player like Weatherspoon will make everyone else around him even better.  

21. Houston Texans - Myron Lewis, CB, Vanderbilt

Much like 2009, the 2010 draft class isn't loaded with elite talent at the cornerback position. Lewis is an interesting prospect at 6'2, 210 pounds. Some question if Lewis should stay at corner or move to safety. At corner he is a physical player that has the strength to overpower most receivers in man. The Texans have a dynamic offense, a strong defensive line and solid young linebacking core. Now it's time to address the secondary.
