    If ________ falls past pick #20, Devaney should start working the phones to trade up.

    Which player do you see as a guy who could drop to the final 10 picks of the first round that would tempt the Rams to trade up?

    Re: If ________ falls past pick #20, Devaney should start working the phones to trade

    A lot of it depends on who we pick at #2. If we go along the OL, you have to look at Heyward-Bey and to a lesser degree, IMO, Maualuga. I can't say I'd be 100% surprised if Maualuga were to fall fall out of the top 32, anyway. If we go with Curry at #2, an OT becomes important. I don't think I'd like to take the risk on Oher, but Eben Britton might be a safer, less spectacular pick. However, getting an OT at #20 in the first place is going to be very difficult if Detroit takes Stafford first overall. They have virtually nobody to protect him and I can't see them passing on Smith/Oher/Britton unless they want Maualuga or Laurinitis to lead their equally unpopulated defense at that pick.

    The other thing to consider with Detroit is that they have a lot of ammo with three picks in the top 33. A trade up into the top fifteen (to get someone like Brian Cushing/Aaron Maybin), though unlikely, remains a distant possibility.

    I liked & voted Maualuga MLB. Brian Cushing would also be a great choice.
    I don't want Rams to give up the picks to move up. Just take K. Britt , B. Robiski or the fan favorite in R. Brace in 2nd .

    Sleeper is definately Sanchez, because Spags may want to bring in his own guy, because he really isn't married to Bulger. I want the Rams to Draft Monroe so I gave the slight edge to Mauluga over DHB. Mauluga gives the Rams a defensive enforcer in the middle that we desperately need. Our defense has been considered soft for a long time putting a big mean guy like Mags in the middle will change that. IMO DHB is fast, but he is to raw

    Re: If ________ falls past pick #20, Devaney should start working the phones to trade

    Trading up may actually be best for us in the long run but it would take more patience by the fans. I say this because doing so would have to cost us our 2nd, 3rd and probably 5th round picks. We would be trading...

    1 elite, 2 quality and 1 project for 2 elites.

    If this is the case, knowing the rebuilding will take two more drafts, I would trade up for Oher even if we take Smith/Monroe with the number 2. Sounds crazy but with Brown, Bell and Greco I think we could set our o-line for the next several years.

    Get a NT in next years great crowd and either a wr or lb and handle the rest in free agency.

    Has to be Percy Harvin. You cannot let playmakes drop that low.

    Maclin could drop passed 20 and i would think most of us here at clanram would like to see us trade up to get him if he drops that far, assuming we get a Tackle first. If we go curry obviosuly we could trade up for one of the lineman (britton,beatty)if we have to.

    I agree w/Jackson that would definitely fill two needs with quality picks IMO.

    Assuming I am the GM and we take a tackle at 2 I would have to trade up for Ray Maualuga, and would seriously consider Mark Sanchez and Percy Harvin.

    Re: If ________ falls past pick #20, Devaney should start working the phones to trade

    The pick is Rey Mauluaga by deafault

    We wont waste a 1st round pick for Beanie Wells

    Harvin is already not going in the top 20 and i dont think we are intrested in him

    Most likely we are taking Monroe or Smith so we wont be in the market for Oher

    There is value later for a QB so no marc sanchez

    So it was down to Heyward-bey and Mauluaga and i dont the Rams will trade up for a WR but they will for a MLB so Mauluga is the choice.

    I like bey and manuguala and oher if we take curry, but most realistically, i like the idea of trading up a few spots to get laurienitis.

    ramming speed to all

    This for me as well. (Like Britton as much as Oher here)


    Assuming OT, I'll cast my vote for Mauluga
    Harvin is intriguing
