*Rams trade down from the #2 pick to the #8 pick [Browns], the Rams also receive their 2nd rounder, and next year's Browns 1st rounder.
-Rams release: Scott Wells [C - 4.5 million saved], Harvey Dahl [RG - 4 million saved], and Kendall Langford [DT - 4 million saved], and Cortland Finnegan [CB - 7 million saved].
-Rams re-sign/extend: Rodger Saffold (Multiple year re-sign), Robert Quinn (extend), Sam Bradford (re-structure), Chris Williams (re-sign).
-Rams sign: FS Jairus Byrd (Bills - 5 years, 40 million), C Alex Mack (Browns - 4 years 24 million).
1 - Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan St: The top CB in the draft goes to the Rams at #8! We get our #1 CB and now we have a solid trio of Tru, Janoris, and Dennard. Dennard is excellent in press man coverage and has a solid knack for turning his head for the ball. He's got HUGE potential.
1 - Louis Nix, DT, Notre Dame: This guy is big. 350 lbs big. He's a huge run stuffer and is scheme versatile. Nix is surprisingly nimble at 350 lbs. He can lose leverage at times, but he can be downright dominant. He helps out big time in the run stop department and becomes an immediate starter next to Brockers since Langford is being let go.
2 - Brandon Coleman, WR, Rutgers: This kid can be something special. If you're looking for a Calvin Johnson-esque WR, he's it. He comes in at 6'6 and 220 lbs. He doesn't have killer straight line speed but he surely isn't slow. He has terrific hands and runs crisp routes at the college level. If molded correctly Coleman can be an absolute terror on the outside for ANY CB in this league.
2 - Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA: The trade with the Browns allows us to take a chance in the 2nd round. Hundley is a good QB who is extremely mobile. He has a strong arm and is only 20 years old. At times he can be sporadic and you wan't to see more from a guy like him. With that being said, Hundley can come in and sit behind Sam immediately. He will earn valuable reps and learn about the game and get coached up for the year. Once we hit 2015, Hundley can start over Bradford, can potentially be traded for a 1st rounder, or can continue to be one of the best backup QB's in the league.
3 - Denzel Perryman, OLB, Miami: Perryman is a big guy who can play all 3 LB positions. He is a "tackling machine" and can make a big hit. He rounds out our LB corps. Perryman and Dunbar can play for that 3rd LB spot. Perryman will most likely get the edge with his aggressive play, making Dunbar excellent depth at the LB position.
4 - Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami: Henderson was the #1 recruit coming out of high school. He has a rare combination of size coming in at 6'7 and 345 lbs. When he wants to, he can be the most dominating player in the league. That's his issue, though. Injuries, off the field issues. That is why I think he slides to this spot, but he is well worth the chance in the 4th.
5 - Larry Webster, DE, Bloomsburg: Webster is a talented pass rusher. He compares very well to the Bengals DE Michael Johnson, coming in at 6'6 and 240 lbs. He needs to commit to the gym room and pack on some good weight. That'll help him in the run department as well as rushing the passer.
6 - Bruce Gaston, DT, Purdue: Gaston has been in the shadow of Kawann Shorts for a while. Gaston is a guy with some potential and can make a good backup at the DT spot. Purely developmental.
7 - Glenn Carson, ILB, Penn State: I figured why not go to LBU and grab a guy in Carson who is very active. Penn State has a knack for producing superstar LB's so I'll happily take Carson.
