2010 NFL Mock Draft Rounds 1-3: Bruce Campbell, Jason Campbell Unite to Oakland?

Mere hours away from kicking off the 2010 NFL Draft , fans and media personnel are swarming to the latest news, information, and mock draft predictions on their designated teams.

Since Saturday evening, I’ve covered rounds 1-3 of more than a dozen of the NFL franchises, and now the series continues with the Oakland Raiders.


Round One, Pick Eight—Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland

This season is a make or break year for JaMarcus Russell, and there’s no chance he’ll have success without more protection.

Bruce Campbell has incredible size, tremendous speed and agility, and exceptional awareness. Campbell is also patient and reacts well to stunts and blitz packages. Some say he looks like a tight end, and that fact tips the scale in his favor.


Round Two, Pick 39—(Trade via Washington) QB Jason Campbell, DT Albert Haynesworth

The Oakland Raiders find excellent value in the second round, sending their pick to Washington in exchange of quarterback Jason Campbell and defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth. 

With both players unhappy and not showing up to practice, the Redskins are more than willing to get rid of them.

Campbell will put pressure on JaMarcus Russell and could receive the starting spot if Russell isn’t ready. 

Albert Haynesworth gives the Raiders’ the upgrade they’re looking for on the front four.


Round Three, Pick 69—Brandon Spikes, LB, Florida

The Raiders find a steal with a solid tackler, explosive hitter, and excellent run stopper with a little temper in linebacker Brandon Spikes. Spikes has the strength, quickness, and coverage skills to fit any of the LB positions, but will likely seal the void in the middle.
