2010 NFL Draft

With the 2010 NFL Draft just a little more than 24 hours away (Thursday), Gambling911.com looks at the needs for the Patriots, Dolphins, Jets and Bills.

The New England Patriots, who finished first in the AFC East last season, get a 22nd first round pick.  They will need a wide receiver, running back, tight end, linebacker and a defensive end, the later two probably the most important.   

The pressure is on following division rival off season moves by both the Jets and Dolphins that can only be viewed as substantial upgrades.

The New York Jets added wide receiver Santonio Holmes, cornerback Antonio Cromartie and running back LaDainian Tomlinson while the Miami Dolphins traded for wide receiver Brandon Marshall.

"Every team is going to improve by next weekend," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "Whatever teams draft and whatever moves they make they will be a better team than they were right now. That's obvious. I think the big thing for us is to focus on our team."

The Dolphins will be looking for a safety, defensive tackle, defensive end, guard, tight end and a linebacker.  They have a 12th first round pick.

The Jets have a 29th first round pick and will need a linebacker, defensive end, safety, offensive line and wide receiver.

The Bills have a 9th first round pick and need an offensive tackle, quarterback, defensive tackle, wide receiver, linebacker and running back.

2010 NFL Draft betting odds and 2011 Super Bowl odds heading into the Draft were available at Sportsbook.com and should be locked in here now as they will be updated post-NFL Draft.
