    Av's "Other Draft Board" (My "Big 33")

    Given how the choice for the first pick has narrowed, I think it is more productive for me to post a different type of draft board from my typical "top 10" list.

    I call this my "Big 33." Essentially, this is a list of 33 players who I would consider in either Round 1 or Round 2.

    Let me clarify. Most of these players are not among those I'd consider with the first pick (for me, that list has only two names on it). Likewise, many of the players have little or no chance of being there at pick No. 33. Finally, there are players likely to go in the top 33 (i.e. Taylor Mays, Carlos Dunlap, Rolando McClain) who I, for various reasons, would not consider with either the Rams two picks.

    All that stated, because the list has 33 players on it, the Rams will (absent a trade) have the opportunity to draft at least two of these players (they might not wish to, of course: i.e. if they take Bradford first, and the only players left from the list at #33 are Colt McCoy and Dan LeFevour - in that situation, I'd look to trade down).

    This list will be important to me because I will use it (or an updated version, should I choose to one) as my checklist for Thursday and Friday of Draft Weekend.

    So... here it is (listed by position):

    Sam Bradford (QB)
    Jimmy Clausen (QB)
    Colt McCoy (QB)
    Dan LeFevour (QB)
    C.J. Spiller (RB)
    Ryan Matthews (RB)
    Jahvid Best (RB)
    Dez Bryant (WR)
    Demaryius Thomas (WR)
    Golden Tate (WR)
    Jermaine Gresham (TE)
    Russell Okung (OT)
    Brian Bulaga (OT)
    Anthony Davis (OT)
    Trent Williams (OT)
    Vladmimir Ducasse (OT)
    Mike Iupati (OG)
    Ndamukong Suh (DT)
    Gerald McCoy (DT)
    Dan Williams (DT)
    Brian Price (DT)
    Derrick Morgan (DT)
    Jason Pierre-Paul (DE)
    Brandon Graham (DE)
    Everson Griffen (DE)
    Corey Wooten (DE)
    Sergio Kindle (DE/LB)
    Sean Weatherspoon (LB)
    Joe Haden (CB)
    Kyle Wilson (CB)
    Patrick Robinson (CB)
    Eric Berry (S)
    Earl Thomas (S)

    1 question, Why do you have Joe Haden as the #1 CB? In my opinion, his combine sort-of hurt his stock.

    Good list, AV. I'm curious; why would you not consider Mays, Dunlap and McClain?

    Yeah, I'd think if Odrick were there at the top of two (and we went QB) he'd almost have to be the pick, or he'd maybe be our best chance at trading down.

    1 question, Why do you have Joe Haden as the #1 CB? In my opinion, his combine sort-of hurt his stock.
    Haden reportedly had a minor back injury at the Combine. He'll run again at the UF Pro Day. I've seen him play quite a bit, and I think he'll be a very good pro.

    Good list, AV. I'm curious; why would you not consider Mays, Dunlap and McClain?
    Mays' lack of coverage skills worries me. Dunlap is a classic under-achiever. McClain is an inside LB, which is one position the Rams don't need to upgrade.

    No Odrick?
    He was on the bubble, but I just don't see him as a guy worth the 33rd pick. I wouldn't be crushed if the Rams took him there, but I'd rather trade down.

    Don't like his production, and his speed is nothing to write home about.

    dont u think he has that burst though...from what iv seen hes a pretty good YAC reciever and hes really tough... something we lack at WR....wouldnt it be a good fit in the rams WCO?......another factor is the fact he had a crap QB....

    Just don't value him as the 33rd pick in the draft.

    Damian Williams? Or do the other prospects on the board kind of push him down past 33?
