2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft: Pick No. 53

Rd. # Player Pos. College
2 53 Daryl Washington LB
General Manager: Quez81

With the 53rd pick of the 2010 Pride of Detroit Community Mock Draft, the New England Patriots select TCU linebacker Daryl Washington.

Here is Quez81's reasoning for the pick:

Daryl Washington is explosive and aggressive and has great closing speed and freakishly long arms. He doesn't miss many tackles, has good ball skills with huge upside, and is rated higher than Sean Weatherspoon on some boards. Washington is a natural leader, but he needs to add a few pounds to fit the Patriots' scheme. He lacks some experience and struggles to shed blocks, but I think that will change once he adds weight and strength. I think this is a great pick. New England's defense will be set if my 22nd pick of Jared Odrick and 53rd pick of Daryl Washington come into their own early. The Patriots' pass rush will be revitalized.
