2009 NFL Mock Draft: Picks 10-12

The mock madness continues today with picks 10-12. Be sure to check out the rest of the mock draft by clicking the links on the upper right hand side of this page. 

And off we go... 

10. 49ers: Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri 

The 49ers would have loved for one of the quarterbacks to fall to the tenth spot, but they'll settle for one of the top two quarterback targets in this draft. Maclin brings speed--and lots of it. He should give San Fran the offensive spark they've been looking for in the passing game, regardless of who they have throwing him the ball.

11. Bills: Everette Brown, DE, Florida State

The Bills need some help on the defensive line, and Brown is considered by most to be the second best end in the draft (and the best still available at this pick), and he's shooting fast up the draft board. Brown's quickness and versatility will make him a lot of money next weekend, and for good reason. He can probably play linebacker in a 3-4, but in Buffalo he'll stick to where he's most comfortable as an end in the 4-3. 

12. Broncos: Aaron Maybin, DE, Penn State

The men in charge in Denver would have loved to see Brown fall to them at 12, but Maybin is a heck of a consolation prize. Maybin came out of nowhere and had a huge season for the Nittany Lions when he finally got the playing time and opportunity to display his talent. Maybin is also a candidate for a linebacker role in the Broncos 3-4 defense. Some think the Broncos might be able to snatch up maybe at pick 18, but we don't think they'll take that chance.
