    Av's "One Month To Go" 7 Round Rams Mock

    Round 1: Chris Long, DE, Virginia
    Round 2: Carl Nicks, OT, Nebraska
    Round 3: Donnie Avery, WR, Houston
    Round 4: Frank Okam, NT, Texas
    Round 5: Kevin O'Connell, QB, San Diego State
    Round 6: Jehuu Caulcrick, FB, Michigan State
    Round 7: Hilee Taylor, OLB, North Carolina

    What this draft gets us:
    • Blue Chip pass rushing DE
    • Versatile OL help
    • Speed at WR position
    • Young NT rotation with Ryan and Okam
    • Developmental QB
    • FB with some RB/H-B skills
    • Pass Rusher/Special Teams/OLB Depth
    What this draft does not provide:
    • Help at the CB spot (would rather get a veteran)
    • SS upgrade (considered Craig Steltz at Okam's spot, but decided interior line is more important)

    Not bad. I'm not as big on Avery as some on here are, I would much rather take Earl Bennett if he was still on the board. I know you are hoping that Chris Long falls to us too.

    Oh, and Carl Nicks goes to Nebraska, not Texas. You hating on Carriker's alma mater?

    Beat me to that error... fixed.

    I think there are holes in Avery's game, but his speed would keep opposing defenses honest and open things up for Holt/Bennett/McMichael.

    Okam at 4 is one of those that if he plays up to his potential, he should have been at least a 2nd rounder if not a round 1 guy. He didn't have a stellar season his senior year and sometimes the radio jocks would get on him for taking plays off. However, loads of talent.

    I would, we have Ryan,AC,Glover, and third round bust if we don't give him one more shot Wroten. If Wroten turns out to be a bust, I really hate the Hill/Wrote draft pick. Thats why I don't like to trade back and get more picks.

    Carl Nicks has character concerns recently arrested at a very suspicious party. He also doesn't beg me as that athletic type of OL guy Saunders likes. Otherwise I really like it.

    Nicks has only played one year at LT as a starter , i don't think he should go that high , and i might look for a safer prospect ( if there is actually a safe prospect ) .

    IMO Nicks wouldn't see many snaps this year. I would rather take someone in round 2 that is an area of need and could see several snaps this year. A 2nd round WR could see several snaps this year. We need a young WR because Holts not getting younger and has knees that could shorten his career.

    Who would you like to see take in the second if we went WR?
    Then who would you take in round three?
