    Richardson makes no sense with #3, that's like saying maybe we should draft rg3 just in case Bradford's ankle doesn't heal well. Yea we have tons of gaping holes, and superb players waiting to be drafted, but let's take a backup as an insurance policy. No way Jose. Teams don't use #3 picks on insurance. Especially not when you already have one of the best players in the league at that position, and holes else where that have elite talent you can draft instead.

    Who said Kalil is above Blackmon on the Rams' draft board? We don't know what their board looks like. We can only speculate.

    Definition for mock draft:

    Mock draft is a term used by sports websites and magazines in reference to a simulation of a sports league draft or fantasy sports.

    This is my mock so it's my fantasy...

    Are you really comparing a high ankle sprain to Peterson having surgery to reconstruct the ACL and repair the MCL in his left knee. Really?

    Um.... no. Your thread title refers to "their draft board," not yours. You don't know what their draft board looks like.

    Are you actually missing the point, or deflecting from it? I am well aware that an ACL and MCL tear is just a tad more serious than a high ankle sprain.

    I get the point heck everyone that responded thinks there is no chance in hell that the Vikes will draft Trent. That being said you comparing Bradford ankle to Peterson knee to drive it home it a bit over the top. It's all good I get your point...

    Well since I really don't know any teams board including the Rams nor does anyone else who creates a mock draft. I really never thought the title of the thread had to be a fact, when creating a mock draft.
    It is a mock draft... I'm giving my opinion of the Rams... Who said Kalil is above Blackmon on the Rams' draft board? I just did.

    Love it when people talk about Fishers Oline and always seem to forget one of the best ever..... Bruce Matthews; no dominant presence for all those seasons?

    Think Eddie George wants a word :-)

    there is no way the vikes take Richardson. None at all. No way they want all that money invested in the RB position.

    Vikes will take Kalil
    Browns will take richardson, Blackmon or Tannenhill
    Bucs will take Claiborne
    Rams will take Richardson or Blackmon- obviously whoever hasn't been taken

    Of course after all this bashing, if the Vikings DO take Richardson, I think we all owe Rambos some rep.

    If they do take Richardson, barring some catastrophic happening to Peterson between now and the draft, I'll send Rambos a 10 pound box of one dollar bills.
