Round One Roundup

Round 1 of the Draft is in the books. The trading trend that we’ve seen this offseason continued into the draft with plenty of trades.

Here’s a summary of the picks (Bears’ 2010 opponents in bold):

1    Rams    Sam Bradford    QB
2    Lions    Ndamukong Suh    DT
3    Bucs    Gerald McCoy    DT
4    Redskins    Trent Williams    OT
5    Chiefs    Eric Berry    SS
6    Seahawks    Russell Okung    OT
7    Browns    Joe Haden    CB
8    Raiders    Rolando McClain    LB
9    Bills    C.J. Spiller    RB
10    Jaguars    Tyson Alualu    DE

11    49ers    Anthony Davis    OT
12    Chargers    Ryan Mathews    RB
13    Eagles    Brandon Graham    DE
14    Seahawks    Earl Thomas    SS
15    Giants    Jason Pierre-Paul    DE
16    Titans    Derrick Morgan    DE
17    49ers    Mike Iupati    OG
18    Steelers    Maurkice Pouncey    C
19    Falcons    Sean Weatherspoon    LB
20    Texans    Kareem Jackson    CB
21    Bengals    Jermaine Gresham    TE
22    Broncos    Demaryius Thomas    WR
23    Packers    Bryan Bulaga    OT
24    Cowboys    Dez Bryant    WR
25    Broncos    Tim Tebow    QB
26    Cardinals    Dan Williams    DT
27    Patriots    Devin McCourty    CB
28    Dolphins    Jared Odrick    DT
29    Jets    Kyle Wilson    CB
30    Lions    Jahvid Best    RB
31    Colts    Jerry Hughes    DE
32    Saints    Patrick Robinson    CB

2010 opponent Carolina entered the night without a first round pick while Minnesota struck up an intra-divisional deal with the Lions, trading away their #30 pick so the Lions could nab Cal running back Jahvid Best.

The biggest newsmakers of the night had to be the Denver Broncos.  First they parlayed their pick from the Jay Cutler trade and then pulled off the biggest surprise of the night – drafting Florida quarterback Tim Tebow at #25.  Tebow joins former Bears QB Kyle Orton and former Golden Domer Brady Quinn.  Paraphrasing my favorite Tebow Tweet of the night, after the Broncos drafted him, ” he’s a mile closer to heaven.” Gold, Jerry! Gold!

With a night to reset their draft boards, expect plenty more action leading into Friday night and Rounds Two and Three.
