    Options beyond Green, jones, and quinn

    Lately ive seen these three names in just about every mock draft for the Rams. So let me give you guys a possible scenario:

    Rams win a home playoff game but lose in the next round giving them the 23rd pick in the 2011 nfl draft.

    Who would you take?

    These are the players off the board (in no particular order)

    AJ Green
    Robert Quinn
    Julio Jones
    D'quan Bowers
    Andrew Luck
    Patrick Peterson
    Marcell Dareus
    Prince Amukamra
    Ryan Mallat
    Nick Fairley
    Adrian Clayborn
    Mark Ingram
    Stephan Paea
    Allen Bailey
    Anthony Castonzo
    Derrek Sherrod
    Ryan Kerrigan
    Von Miller
    Jaronis Jenkins
    Drake Nevis
    Akeem Ayers
    Gabe Carimi


    Do we still go out and get a WR? Jonathan Barwin? Malcolm Floyd? Bradford's former teammate ryan Broyles?

    Do we draft a DB for value like Brandon Burton or aaron Williams?

    Or do we get Bradford a pass catching TE like Kyle Rudolph?

    Or someone else in mind?

    I think at that point you just go BPA. It will also depend on who the Rams pick up in FA. I'm guessing they'll upgrade the secondary or the WR core or both before the draft..But if I had to pick one I'd probably go Baldwin...i'll probably change my mind another 5 times before we actually draft though.

    Depending on their workouts, I'd say Baldwin, Floyd and Leonard Hankerson would be in the mix.

    So would Bruce Carter.

    Having 2 6'5 220 Guys in Baldwin and DX on the outside, Amendola on the inside, Bradford throwing in year 2, a good pass blocking o-line, a healthy 0h-oh and Fendi. Can you say top 10 offense?

    travis lewis, bruce carter, mike pouncey or baldwin would interest me around that area. there should also still be some interesting pass rushers available so we could go that route, i wouldn't expect a corner this high.

    I'm going with Mike Pouncey at RG. Give Goldberg and Greco commemorative T-shirts and some nice parting gifts, I'm tired of watching substandard interior line play

    Also, Stefan Wisnieski (C or OG) or Bruce Carter could also make sense at that spot.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    I would say BPA but after watching the the last couple of games I would say we need a big RG to fully give our offensive line that last piece we need. If Mike Pouncey is as good as his brother then wow.

    BarronWade,

    I noticed that you did not put Justin Blackman on your list of prospects. If he declares he would also be a strong consideration for the Rams where they are expected to pick.


    He has truly been dominate this year and might just be as ready for the pros as anyone else.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Blackmon is a tough prospect to grade out because he is a redshirt sophomore without the production Michael Crabtree had. Blackmon is having a great season and of corse if he declares the Rams will give him a thorough look.

    If he does declare i would consider him over Baldwin as the 3rd best receiver. But at this point i will still have to wait it out on him.

    Blackman, according to the reports I've read, is currently leaning towards coming back. If, however, it appears that a rookie cap has a chance of being put into place, I think we may see a lot of underclassman declaring.

    I he were in this draft, he'd likely be the 2nd or 3rd WR off the board, after Green.

    Regardless, what a great year for receivers. I'm glad we waited. And here's a thought: perhaps our FO noticed this as well!...

    There are a couple of names I think you'd have to have on your list at that point - LB Bruce Carter, WR Michael Floyd, CBs Jimmy Smith and Brandon Harris, OL DeMarcus Love. Out of those, I would probably go with Carter, but the Rams will have a number of good options.

    I think that, whoever we take, the front office will be just be glad they don't have to pay them top-2 money this year.

    I'm with you on Carter. He's the kind of player that seems to be near the ball on every play. He also runs like a greyhound and hits like a truck. Reminds me a bit of Derrick Brooks.
