    Av's Rams Draft Board (*Sorted by Position*)

    I've created a new type of Rams draft board that sorts the players by position. A bit of explanation is in order...

    First, each position has a designated round. This denotes the earliest round I would consider taking a player the given position. For example, the position of CB is designated "Round 1B," which means the earliest I'd take a CB is with the Rams second pick in the first round.

    Because of these designations, certain players are omitted. For example, you won't see the top QBs (Bortles, Manziel, Bridgewater), Aaron Donald or Khalil Mack on my lists, because I am confident that they will all be taken before the earliest selection I'd use on their respective positions.

    Ten players have a number in bold after their names. These are my Top 10 overall prospects, and their rankings on my overall board.

    Finally, where there is only one player (DE), or no players at all (TE) at a given position who I'd consider in the first three rounds of the draft, I have not included a full list of five players.

    So... with that, here are my lists:

    Quarterback (Round 2)

    1. Derek Carr, Fresno State
    2. Jimmy Garoppolo, Eastern Illinois
    3. A.J. McCarron, Alabama
    4. David Fales, San Jose State
    5. Aaron Murray, Georgia

    Running Back (Round 3)

    1. Tre Mason, Auburn
    2. Bishop Sankey, Washington
    3. Ka’Deem Carey, Arizona
    4. Lache Seastrunk, Baylor
    5. Tyler Gaffney, Stanford

    Wide Receiver (Round 1A)

    1. Sammy Watkins, Clemson (3)
    2. Mike Evans, Texas A&M (4)
    3. Kelvin Benjamin, Florida State*
    4. Odell Beckham, Jr., LSU
    5. Jordan Matthews, Vanderbilt

    Tight End (n/a)

    Offensive Guard/Center (Round 2)

    1. David Yankey, Stanford
    2. Gabe Jackson, Mississippi State
    3. Xavier Su’a-Filo, UCLA
    4. Brandon Thomas, Clemson
    5. Marcus Martin, USC

    Offensive Tackle (Round 1A)

    1. Jake Matthews, Texas A&M (1)*
    2. Greg Robinson, Auburn (2)*
    3. Taylor Lewan, Michigan (6)*
    4. Zack Martin, Notre Dame (7)
    5. Morgan Moses, Virginia

    Defensive End (Round 1A)

    1. Jadeveon Clowney, South Carolina*

    Defensive Tackle (Round 2)

    1. Timmy Jernigan, Florida State
    2. RaShede Hagerman, Minnesota
    3. Ego Ferguson, LSU
    4. DaQuan Jones, Penn State
    5. Anthony Johnson, LSU

    Linebacker (Round 1B)

    1. Anthony Barr, UCLA
    2. C.J. Mosley, Alabama
    3. Ryan Shazier, Ohio State*

    4. Kyle Van Noy, BYU
    5(tie). Chris Borland, Wisconsin
    5(tie). Trevor Reilly, Utah

    Cornerback (Round 1B)

    1. Justin Gilbert, Oklahoma State (5)*
    2. Darqueze Dennard, Michigan State (8)*
    3. Kyle Fuller, Virginia Tech
    4. Stanley Jean-Baptiste, Nebraska
    5. Keith McGill, Utah

    Safety (Round 1B)

    1. Hasean Clinton-Dix, Alabama (9)
    2. Calvin Pryor, Louisville (10)
    3. Deone Bucannon, Washington State
    4. Jimmy Ward, Northern Illinois
    5. Ed Reynolds, Stanford

    I've added (and will continue to add) asterisks next to players who have either private workouts with the Rams or visits to Rams Park.

    I like most of this, good job man! The only thing I disagree with is the CBs. Not a fan of Gilbert and Dennard would be a terrible fit for us. IMO Fuller is the best in the class.

    Why are not a fan of Gilbert? From what I have seen read Dennard is a great man on man CB and with Williams scheme it would be seem to fit I am wondering why you disagree. Also why do you like Fuller the best? Long question short would you mind expanding on our points? I am always willing to learn :-)

    Gilbert seems overly aggressive and bites on fakes really easily. He just seems to get burned more than id like to see. He also seems to grab the wideouts a lot when downfield.
    Dennard is a much better press corner than off man corner and i see us playing off more often than press.

    The thing I like most about Fuller is he is great at jumping routes and is great at locating the ball. Just an all around playmaker.

    I can't remember who, I think it might have been Nick W mentioned that Fuller could be converted to a really good safety. With your description of him do you agree, or think he should stay at CB?

    Saw Joe Haden talking about the CB's in this years draft he is a guy I respect in many ways not just for his play. He loves Gilbert most of all the CB's in this draft and cites Dennard as being too grabby and that might cost him in penalties till he gets it straight in the NFL. Oh by the way he still had Dennard at number 2, just saying. Interesting to hear Joe break these guys down!

    My No. 4 interior lineman, Brandon Thomas, has suffered a torn ACL. This takes him off my board, moving Marcus Martin up to four, and adding Dakota Dozier, Furman, at No. 5.

    I would consider drafting Thomas with one of the Rams four 7th round picks if he is available and placing him on a "redshirt" status for 2014.
