2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft: Pick No. 31

Rd. # Player Pos. College
1 31 Jermaine Gresham TE
Oklahoma
General Manager: Leapin Lion

With the 31st pick of the 2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the Indianapolis Colts select Oklahoma tight end Jermaine Gresham.

Here is Leapin Lion's reasoning for the pick:

Researching the Colts and their needs, the most glaring hole was the offensive line. The Colts were dead last in 2009 in rushing yards. They have aging vets and underachieving youngsters. That being said, I'm not one to settle on leftovers, especially when it comes to first-round picks. The run on OTs and Pouncey and Iupati being selected has made this decision easy for me.

Dallas Clark, outside of last year, has had durability issues. The Colts have shown the moxy to draft blue-chip players even if they are initially penciled in as backups. Clark was drafted while Marcus Pollard was still performing at a high level.

Gresham is an elite athlete who has excellent hands. He can make a defender miss and rack up the yards after the catch. He is a large target at 6'6", 260 lbs., making him a beautiful target over the middle or in the red zone.

He did miss last year because of a knee injury, but did not show any ill effects at the combine or his pro day. Gresham is a can't miss player, and I believe we can still draft a quality lineman in the second round.
