Rich Gosselin's first 2010 mock draft

Rich Gosselin's final mock draft is almost always the most predictive of any of the pundits every year.  It's not that he's a particularly excellent appraiser of talent, but rather that he has a great knack for taking the pulse of probably the best college of insider sources across the entire league.  He knows the right people in almost every war room, and he gets great info.

However, that final mock draft is usually quite different from his first and second ones.  A quote about his mock draft approaches after the jump:

Rick Gosselin: I've got three mock drafts coming up -- each of the two Sundays leading up to the draft and then the final mock on the day of the draft. So the first mock will be in the newspaper and on the web site this Sunday. My first mock always leans toward my draft board, the second mock leans toward team need and the third mock will be the players I think each team should draft with their selections on the clock."

So this one, his first of 2010, will depend largely on his own draft board.  Again, I don't consider him a brilliant judge of talent, but it's still worth examining his first mock, because it's likely that a certain degree of his sourcing could influence the results a bit:

Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma

Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
