    J. Brown versus K. Barnes

    It looks like it will come down to one of these two if available. The scouting reports have Brown being 'nastier' while Barnes is more athletic. I think a lot will depend on the Pace situation. If the Rams so into the draft dragging Pace with the franchise then I think the pick is Barnes as he can play LT. Brown has been a pure RT. If Pace is signed to a long-term deal by then, then I think the pick is Brown.

    Barnes is athletic, but very inconsistent. Brown actually has the ability to play on either side - his pass protection skills are quite good - but would probably be more comfortable on the right side. Barnes seems like a much more risky pick, and I hope that if Brown is off the board, the Rams look at another position in the first round.

    With the shape of our O-line, I'd take either one with the 19 pick, but Barnes would be a bit of a reach where Brown at 19 would be about right. Both are athletic enough and technically sound enough to play either end of the line. I'd be happy with either, but I'd prefer Brown.

    Brown never gave up a sack in his college career. That's pretty stout.
