    Beyond the "Big 5," how many players are worth the No. 13 pick?

    When considering the options at No. 2, most fans agree that there is a "Big 5" list of prospects, consisting of Jadeveon Clowney, Khalil Mack, Sammy Watkins, Greg Robinson and Jake Matthews.

    What about the No. 13 pick? How many players, apart from the Big 5, would be worth selecting at that point in the draft?

    Here's my list (in alphabetical order):

    Anthony Barr
    Hasean Clinton-Dix
    Darqueze Dennard
    Aaron Donald
    Mike Evans
    Kyle Fuller
    Justin Gilbert
    Taylor Lewan
    Zack Martin
    Calvin Pryor

    So, for me, if there's a Big 5 for No. 2, there's a Big 15 for No. 13.

    Virtually any combination of players from these two lists would, in my mind, constitute a great addition to the Rams' roster.

    I'd kick Donald and Fuller out. The bust potential of Donald is higher than normal.
    Toss in Ebron. While not an immediate need and low on the list, he's a great prospect.

    Anthony Barr
    Hasean Clinton-Dix
    Darqueze Dennard
    Justin Gilbert

    JMO but I think #13 is likely to come from those 4.

    My list would probably exclude Fuller and Martin and replace them with Jimmy Ward and Odell Beckham, both of whom seem to be creeping up mock drafts as of late.

    Good list AvR, as mentioned I don't think Fuller is in that group but the rest are all good options for that spot if we stay in it... LOL

    Trading Les & Fish might have other ideas for that pick, but if they stay I expect one of your choices to be the one. I think it is allot of fun to have no idea what they will do the most unpredictable Rams brain trust I can remember ever! I really am impressed with that about them. Go Rams!

    Its interesting hearing from a few that Fuller doesn't belong in that group when some might think he could be one of the first two CBs taken. Mike Mayock has him listed no 2 CB in front of Justin Gilbert. I would have to leave him in.

    Basing this group would have to be what happened at No. 2. IF 2 is an OT its either Evans or one of the CBs, if its Watkins then Lewan or CB, if Clowney or Mack then all are game.

    Kind of interesting how Barr's name has been not talked about at all. Not dropping or gaining, just no one I read or listen to talks about him. Hearing more about Shazier then I am of Barr.

    Shazier seems to be a "riser." I wonder if he could be a wild card for the Rams at #13.
