The St. Louis Rams kick off the second round, but the Cleveland Browns make a huge splash in the second frame with the selection of a quarterback. Do the Browns target Texas QB Colt McCoy (pictured left) or Florida QB Tim Tebow? Find out inside...

With the All-Star games, Scouting Combine and Pro Days behind us, we're just two and a half weeks away from the 2010 NFL Draft. Teams continue to conduct private workouts and host draft prospects on official visits, while altering their draft boards. Just like the NFL teams, I also adjust my draft board, as the spring spectacle gets closer, which in turn prompts an update of my Big Board, Rankings and Mock Draft.

In the first round, I projected 16 seniors and 16 underclassmen being selected, but in the second frame the seniors over take the underclassmen, 20 - 12. The St. Louis Rams kick things off once again and continue to favor a certain wide receiver from South Bend.

The Rams are starved for talent on offense and defense. After drafting Bradford in the 1st round, they could address their defense with this pick. But they continue to build on offense and give Bradford a legitimate weapon in Tate.

RB
5-10

The Lions are like the Rams and have many holes. But the ACL injury to Kevin Smith puts the Lions in a tough situation at running back. With Best on the board, he provides the Lions with an explosive option.

WR

The Buccaneers have to give Josh Freeman a WR to grow with, and since Antonio Bryant signed with the Cincinnati Bengals this off season, the addition of Benn is exactly what the Bucs need on offense.

OLB
6-3
250
The Chiefs will look towards defense with this selection and could take the best player available. Cam Thomas is possible and would provide them with a big interior force, but Kindle has first round talent and has the pass rushing ability that fits well in their 3-4 scheme.

Senior
LB
6-2
230
The Eagles acquired this pick from the Redskins in the Donovan McNabb trade, and realize that this draft is one of the best defensive drafts in recent memory. The Eagles have a bad track record of drafting LBs in the second round, but Washington is versatile and can play all three LB positions.

QB
6-1

The Browns have a new regime in place in the front office, and drafting a young signal caller of their own has to be a priority. Despite signing Jake Delhomme and trading for Seneca Wallace, drafting McCoy gives the Browns a savvy, smart QB and a battle tested leader.

DT
6-1

The Raiders addressed their O-Line in the first round and they add depth in the trenches on their D-Line with this pick. Price is a high motor performer, who will contend for a starting job immediately.

Senior
DT
6-4
330
The Chargers acquired this pick from the Seahawks in the Charlie Whitehurst deal and will use it to address their need at NT. After releasing Jamal Williams, the Chargers must find a young interior force. Thomas has had a strong off season and fills a need in San Diego.

Senior
QB
6-3
236
Buffalo Head Coach Chan Gailey said that the Bills quarterback situation will be a competition between Trent Edwards, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Brian Brohm. So, if it's a competition, why not add another QB to the mix - Tebow won't win the job right away, but gives the Bills their QB of the future.

Senior
CB
5-11
190
After taking Suh in the first round, the Bucs continue to upgrade their defense with the selection of Robinson, who forms an excellent CB tandem with Aqib Talib. Robinson is being undervalued at this point, but will thrive in Tampa.

WR
6-3
224
The Dolphins need a playmaker at wide receiver. They could draft a smaller, more elusive player like Dexter McCluster, but they need a big playmaker down field. The Dolphins are hoping Patrick Turner develops into that guy, but Thomas is already that type of player.

Junior
DE
6-6
270
The Patriots never shy away from a challenge on the field, off the field or when it comes to bringing talent into the fold. They will take chances on players, and with a glaring need for a DE, Dunlap has the size and ability to develop into a great player.

Senior
OG
6-4
305
The Broncos desperately need help on the interior of their O-Line. Drafting a center like J.D. Walton is possible, but Asamoah has greater value and is a higher rated prospect than Walton. Vladimir Ducasse will also be considered.

Senior
OG
6-5
332
The Giants got their man in the first round with McClain and will add depth to their O-Line with this pick. Ducasse has the versatility to play guard or tackle and is still developing as a player. He has great upside.

Junior
WR
6-1
197
The uncertainty of when Wes Welker will be able to return to the lineup and the age of Randy Moss makes drafting a WR a huge priority for the Patriots. Williams is a solid all-around receiver, who does everything well.

Senior
WR
6-1

There's no question that the Panthers have to add another playmaker at wide receiver. McCluster is still available, and they will consider adding him, but the Panthers are high on Price and have had their eye on him throughout the off season

Senior
OLB
6-2
255
The 49ers got what they needed in the secondary and on the O-Line in the 1st round, and since they run a 3-4 defense, they can never have enough rush OLBs. Hughes has great upside as a pass rusher and could go even higher than this selection.

Junior
DT
6-5
328
The Chiefs have the makings of a great D-Line with Glenn Dorsey and Tyson Jackson at DE. But they still need that force inside who can disrupt in the middle. Joseph is rapidly rising, and the need for NTs in this draft elevates him into the second round.

Junior
RB
5-11
229
The Texans passed on Ryan Mathews in the first round in favor of Taylor Mays. But they're fortunate that Dwyer is still available to them in the second frame. Dwyer lacks burst, but is the big back that they desire in the backfield.

Senior
CB
6-0
207
The Steelers could upgrade at LB with this pick or address their secondary. There are plenty of names that will standout to the Steelers, but the one who is the most intriguing, has great upside and local ties is Owusu-Ansah. He can play CB or FS and brings a solid all-around game to the field.

Junior
TE
6-3
245
The Patriots are a team that's never shy of drafting tight ends high in the draft. And despite signing veteran Alge Crumpler, they will look for a young, pass catching TE who can stretch the field. Hernandez gives Tom Brady another weapon to utilize.

Senior
DT
6-3
305
The Bengals need a penetrating DT who can get after the QB and help others on the D-Line. Houston is athletic, and plays with a high motor and great leverage.

Senior
DE
6-5
285
The Eagles know that their defense has to improve and they're serious about upgrading it. After drafting a CB in the first round and a LB earlier in the second frame, the Eagles strike again with the addition of Carrington. Carrington has great potential and is the big bodied DE they need on their D-Line.

WR
5-9
172
The Packers will look at the CBs available with this pick, and there are some great names still on the board. But the impact that McCluster could have on the Packers offense is intriguing. He can lineup at RB, WR and be a return specialist.

Senior
TE
6-6
260
The Ravens have to look towards the future at TE with Todd Heap getting older and being injury prone. Graham is the type of developmental pass catching TE they can take a chance on, not to mention, he's from the "U".

Junior
CB
5-11
196
The CB position isn't a huge need for the Cardinals, but with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie recovering from knee surgery and not likely to be ready by the start of training camp, adding depth and a potential starter is necessary. Jackson's physical style will be a welcomed addition.

Senior
FS
6-1
207
The Cowboys have a major need for a free safety who can impact a game. The recently released Ken Hamlin didn't offer much outside of bringing a physical element to the game, and by drafting Allen, the Cowboys add a complete safety who has ballhawking ability.

Senior
OT
6-8
312
The Seahawks have to draft an OT in the first two rounds, and after passing on an OT in the first round, they take a chance on Veldheer, who has great athleticism, size and upside.

Junior
FS
6-2
209
The Jets acquired Brodney Pool to make up for the loss of Kerry Rhodes, but moving forward, New York needs a young safety with playmaking ability. Burnett has performed well this off season and has elevated his status.

6-3

The Vikings have a depth issue on the O-Line and will look to add a center or guard early in the draft. Walton can play both positions, but he will push incumbent starter John Sullivan during training camp for the starting center job.

Senior
DE
6-1
254
The Colts have a defense that's predicated on speed and athleticism, and adding more speed to their defense is never out of the question. The pick will come down to Worilds or Koa Misi; Worilds gets the nod.

Senior
LB
6-2
236
The Saints upgraded their pass rush in the first round with the selection of Everson Griffen and will continue to add on defense with this pick. Lee has first round talent, but his injury history is worrisome. The Saints realize his ability and take a chance on the talented Nittany Lions star.
