2010 NFL Mock Draft: Jimmy Clausen to Oakland; CJ Spiller to Seattle

This here is my final mock for you mock draft junkies.

Nevertheless, I think that interest is only as insurance, in the event that Detroit defies expectations and takes Russell Okung. 

Yet, Washington's interest in Williams could mean that the Chiefs ...
