    final mel kiper mock draft version 5.0

    someone can post it, but it is now available and of note, he has the rams as likely trade down candidates at 6, but if we fail to move out of the spot, he has us taking blackmon. He has the vikings taking claiborne at 3, richardson to browns at 4, khalil to tampa at 5 (with an attempted trade out), us with blackmon or trade and the eagles with cox at 7 (after a trade with jacksonville).

    He has the eagles trading with jacksonville first, then with us? That doesn't seem to make much sense to me...

    He has the eagles trading with jacksonville. He suggests that we will trade back, but doesnt name a team he thinks we will trade with, he just thinks that we will try to trade back. Sorry i didnt write it clearly the first time.

    Interesting. This tells me the Rams may not be sold on Blackmon. They might prefer to take their chances with getting Floyd or Cox plus some added picks in round 2-3. If that happens, I would not be disappointed. There are many who say drafting Blackmon at #6 is too high for his skillset. Additionally, the "meat" of the draft, according to Jay Glazer lies between picks 20 and 45. Unlike our previous front office I have more confidence that Les and Jeff are better evaluators of talent, giving us a better drafting board to select from.

    Go Rams!

    Bernie had Dave Razzano & Mike Silver on his show today. Both said basically the same thing, Blackmon is a solid receiver but isn't elite.

    Cris Collinsworth is on CBS Sports saying he has doubts Blackmon can stretch a defense.

    He can stretch a defense better than Claiborne or Cox.

    That was pretty smart of the Rams to call Kiper up and have him float that nugget in his mock, eh?

    And Jerry Rice raved about Blackmon on Mike & Mike this morning. Blackmon is just like every other NFL prospect - some people love him, some people aren't as high on him.

    So Mel Kiper predicts that the Rams will either make a pick at No. 6 or trade out of that spot.

    That's good news.

    I was worried that they were considering just passing on the selection.

    I was not sold on Blackmon early... but over the last few months he has grown on me. I like what I see. I like how he uses his body to shield the DB and make the catch. I like his strength to break tackles, he has good hands, runs all the routes. He's a playmaker no doubt about it. I'm going to be bummed if we don't get him...
