    The Optimistic Lamb's Mock Draft 1.0

    Looking for criticism. Lots and lots of criticism.


    1) Ndamakong Suh DT:

    Despite being doubled teamed, Suh finished the 2009 regular season with 83 tackles, 23 tackles for loss and 12 sacks. He is so dominant that he batted 10 passes and blocked 3 kicks. Blah, blah, blah…


    2) Colt McCoy QB:

    The second round is really a crap shoot. But not much can compete with a future franchise QB, a position the Rams sorely need. McCoy may not start right away, but he should be ready sooner rather than later. McCoy has thrown for 3,521 yards and 27 touchdowns while completing 70.6 percent of his passes in 2009, and helping Texas average nearly 41 pts per game. Has set a NCAA record in 2008 with a 76.7% completion percentage. Plays in a spread offense, I know. But hell, who doesn’t?


    3) Toby Gerhart HB:

    Jackson’s compressed disc’s are a sign of wear. And it’s only going to get worse. We boast a run first offense, so to me keeping Jackson healthy and fresh is the key. Gerhart is 6-1 and 235 lbs and is projected as a mid to late second rounder. But I think we could grab him at the top of the third. He could definitely shoulder much of the burden for Jackson by taking the 3rd down short yard conversions. And with a scary Jackson/Gerhart duo, we’ll make teams pay for stacking the box...


    4) Riley Cooper WR:

    The “diamond in the rough” pick. Cooper’s potential cannot be determined from looking at his stats. But if you watch him, you’ll notice he has the rare combination of size, coordination, and raw speed. The Rams should love that he is 6’3’’ and 215 lbs. He has been clocked at faster than 4.40 in the 40-yard dash, but his real speed is probably somewhere in the high 4.4s. Cooper is tough, physical, and fundamentally sound. Hopefully he stays overlooked.


    5) Dekoda Watson OLB:

    What the Rams need at the OLB spot is a little bit of intensity. Watson is a reliable tackler who plays bigger than he is. And like Laurinaitis, he is smart enough to play coverage which seems to be a must for Spag’s defense. Watson will be passed up because of his weight, 225 lbs. But he is 6’2” and that tells me another 10-15 lbs of muscle would be nothing for a professional athlete to add. There are many good LB’s in this draft so it is likely that he will be available at the top of the fifth round.
