With the 2010 NFL Draft less than a week away Pewter Report issues a two-round NFL mock draft. Who are the Bucs projected to take in the first round? Who are their second round picks? What DE is projected to be a Buccaneer? Will they turn down a wide receiver? Find out in this mock draft.

The 2010 NFL Draft is just days away and Pewter Report has the latest two-round NFL mock draft. Pewter Report may publish another mock before Thursday night depending on what is learned over the next few days.

For some great mock drafts check out WalterFootball.com. They have weekly mock drafts from writers Walter Cherepinsky and Matt McGuire. Another great site is Scott Wright's DraftCountdown.com. They have a plethora of draft information that is worth checking out. Here is a mock draft database worth checking out: NFL Mock Draft Database.

Pewter Report's Eric Dellaratta contributed greatly to this mock draft.

FIRST ROUND
1. St. Louis Rams- Oklahoma QB Sam Bradford
The Rams are in need of a franchise quarterback. Bradford fills the void.

2. Detroit Lions- Oklahoma State LT Russell Okung
This pick makes too much sense, but you can never rule out the Lions leaving their franchise quarterback unprotected for another year.

3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh

4. Washington Redskins- Oklahoma RT Trent Williams
The Redskins offensive line was depleted last year. Williams would start from day one.

5. Kansas City Chiefs- Iowa LT Bryan Bulaga
Chiefs GM Scott Pioli made it clear that he wants to get better in the trenches last year when he selected Tyson Jackson. They do the same here, but on the other side of the ball.

6. Seattle Seahawks- Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy
McCoy is too good for the Seahawks to pass up, and Seattle's defensive line gets a needed upgrade.


7. Cleveland Browns- Tennessee S Eric Berry
The Browns need a ball hawk in their secondary. Berry can also help stuff the run.

8. Oakland Raiders- Maryland LT Bruce Campbell
The Raiders have a track record of picking "Workout Warriors". Campbell's size and speed is too much for owner Al Davis to pass up.

9. Buffalo Bills- Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen
Despite the need at offensive line, the Bills get a franchise quarterback.

10. Jacksonville Jaguars- Georgia Tech DE Derrick Morgan
Morgan opposite Aaron Kampman would be a lot to handle for opposing offensive lineman.

11. Denver Broncos (from Chicago)- Tennessee DT Dan Williams
Denver needs help in their front seven. Williams is a big body who can help their run defense.

12. Miami Dolphins- Texas OLB Sergio Kindle
The Dolphins need a 3-4 pass rusher. Kindle replaces Joey Porter and Jason Taylor.

13. San Francisco 49ers- Florida CB Joe Haden
The 49ers could move Nate Clements to safety if they select a pro-ready Haden at no. 13.

14. Seattle Seahawks (from Denver)- Clemson RB C.J. Spiller
Seattle is in need of a playmaker on offense. Spiller can also return punts for the Seahawks.

15. New York Giants- Alabama LB Rolando McClain *
The Giants are in need of a middle linebacker after they released Antonio Pierce.

16. Tennessee Titans- Michigan DE Brandon Graham
Graham fills Kyle Vanden Bosch's shoes at defensive end.

17. San Francisco 49ers (from Carolina)- Rutgers LT Anthony Davis
The 49ers could swing Davis over to right tackle and he can be an opening day starter.

18. Pittsburgh Steelers- Florida G/C Maurkice Pouncey
The Steelers didn't run the ball well last year. Pouncey can play effectively at both guard and center.

19. Atlanta Falcons- Missouri LB Sean Weatherspoon
Weatherspoon is a vocal leader that can play middle or outside linebacker for the Falcons.

20. Houston Texans- Texas S Earl Thomas
NFL teams think Thomas could be moved to corner, but Thomas is a good value at safety to help stop Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts.

21. Cincinnati Bengals- Oklahoma TE Jermaine Gresham
Opponents will focus on Antonio Bryant and Chad Ochocinco, so Gresham could be a big target for Carson Palmer in the middle of the field.

22. New England Patriots- Oklahoma State WR Dez Bryant
Randy Moss doesn't have much more left in the tank. Bryant can learn under Moss and take over when he leaves.

23. Green Bay Packers- Idaho G Mike Iupati
Iupati is an aggressive run blocker and would instantly help the struggling offensive line of the Packers.

24. Philadelphia Eagles- Boise State CB Kyle Wilson
The Eagles traded Sheldon Brown leaving an open spot for Wilson to take over.

25. Baltimore Ravens- Rutgers CB Devin McCourty
The Ravens haven't addressed the cornerback position this offseason, so this should be a priority.

26. Arizona Cardinals- South Florida DE Jason Pierre-Paul
Arizona is in need of an edge pass rusher. JPP falls in the draft due to maturity and intelligence, but is great value at no. 26 overall.

27. Dallas Cowboys- USC S Taylor Mays
The Cowboys could use competition at both safety positions. Mays is a hard-hitter with great athletic skills.

28. San Diego Chargers- Fresno State RB Ryan Mathews
With LT gone to the Jets, San Diego gets a work-horse back in Mathews.

29. New York Jets- Penn State DT Jared Odrick
Odrick has all the tools to be a five-technique defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. The Jets also let go of Marques Douglas and Shaun Ellis isn't getting any younger.

30. Minnesota Vikings- UCLA DT Brian Price
Pat Williams is aging, so Price would be in a rotation until Williams leaves.

31. Indianapolis Colts- USC LT Charles Brown
The Colts need some help along the offensive line, and Brown is the best available.

32. New Orleans Saints- Florida DE Carlos Dunlap
Dunlap is an edge rusher that could help fill Charles Grant's shoes.

SECOND ROUND
33. St. Louis Rams- Notre Dame WR Golden Tate
Tate gives the Rams a playmaking wide receiver to pair up with their franchise quarterback.

34. Detroit Lions- Cal RB Javhid Best
RB Kevin Smith was a pick of the previous regime. Best is an upgrade.

35. Tampa Bay Buccaneers- TCU DE Jerry Hughes
For the analysis click here.

36. Kansas City Chiefs- Georgia Tech WR Demaryius Thomas
The raw Demaryius Thomas doesn't have to be a superstar in his rookie season with the Chiefs, as he is paired up with Dwayne Bowe.

37. Philadelphia Eagles- TCU LB Daryl Washington
The Eagles need linebacker help, and Washington is a good fit for them.

38. Cleveland Browns- Florida QB Tim Tebow
Cleveland gets a superstar franchise quarterback in Tebow.

39. Oakland Raiders- USC DE Everson Griffen
The Raiders get an athletic pass rusher. Griffen fits their disposition towards top athletes.

40. San Diego Chargers- Alabama DT Terrence Cody
With Jamal Williams leaving town, the Chargers need a nose tackle. Cody is a run stuffer that can help anchor their defense.

41. Buffalo Bills- North Carolina DT Cam Thomas
The Bills need a nose tackle for their new 3-4 scheme. Thomas can be that big body they need in the middle.

42. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (from Chicago)- South Florida S Nate Allen
For the analysis click here.

43. Denver Broncos- Illinois G Jon Asamoah
The Broncos get a guard that will fit right into Josh McDaniels' scheme.

44. New England Patriots (from Jacksonville)- Cal DT Tyson Alualu
Alualu would fit in as a five-technique defensive end in the Patriots defense and help replace Jarvis Green.

45. Denver Broncos- Illinois WR Arrelious Benn
With Brandon Marshall out of town, the Broncos will need to get a receiver.

46. New York Giants- Northwestern DT Corey Wootton
Wooten is a big, bull rushing defensive end that would fit in well with the Giants.

47. Carolina Panthers- Ohio WR Taylor Price
Price could help take the pressure off of Steve Smith with this pick.

48. New England Patriots (from Tennessee)- OLB Koa Misi
Misi is perfect for a 3-4 defense due to his versatile skill set.

49. San Francisco 49ers- Ole Miss RB Dexter McCluster
McCluster gives the 49ers a dynamic playmaker to pair with Frank Gore.

50. Houston Texans- Georgia Tech RB Jonathan Dwyer
Houston needs help at running back, and Dwyer is great value here.

51. Kansas City Chiefs (from Atlanta)- Florida TE Aaron Hernandez
The Chiefs need a tight end to fill the shoes of Tony Gonzalez.

52. Pittsburgh Steelers- Alabama CB Kareem Jackson
Pittsburgh needs some secondary help. Jackson could compete for a starting job.

53. New England Patriots- Arizona TE Ron Gronkowski
Gronkowski would be a great fit in New England's offense with this pick and he would help replace Ben Watson.

54. Cincinnati Bengals- Cincinnati WR Mardy Gilyard
The Bengals aren't done acquiring receivers. Gilyard has good potential and can play well as a slot receiver.

55. Philadelphia Eagles- LSU S Chad Jones
The Eagles get a hard-hitting safety that can be the presence they missed since Brian Dawkins left.

56. Green Bay Packers- Wake Forest CB Brandon Ghee
Al Harris and Charles Woodson aren't getting any younger. Ghee could be the future at cornerback.

57. Baltimore Ravens- Florida State CB Patrick Robinson
The Ravens get another cornerback that could compete for a starting job along with Devin McCourty.

58. Arizona Cardinals- Indiana OT Rodger Saffold
Saffold could help the Cardinals at right tackle in 2010.

59. Dallas Cowboys- Massachusetts OT Vladimir Ducasse
Ducasse can take place of the recently released Flozell Adams. Ducasse could also be moved to guard.

60. Seattle Seahawks- Florida S Major Wright
Seattle gets a safety that could instantly help their weak pass defense.

61. New York Jets- South Carolina OLB Eric Norwood
Norwood fits in the Jets scheme as a 3-4 pass rushing outside linebacker. Rex Ryan won't shy away from a talented blitzer.

62. Minnesota Vikings- Oklahoma State CB Perrish Cox
Cedric Griffin will be coming off an injury, and Antoine Winfield is getting older. Cox could play nickel when Griffin returns.

63. Indianapolis Colts- Texas DT Lamarr Houston
The Colts get a defensive tackle to replace Raheem Brock and help shore up their run defense.

64. New Orleans Saints- Penn State OLB Navarro Bowman
Bowman would fill Scott Fujita's shoes with this pick.
