    Rockin's Mock Draft @ Week 11 (New perspective)

    After the Saints game, I came to some conclusions:

    *Steven Jackson needs a capable back-up runner. He gets worn out at the second half, because he carries the whole work load.

    *Marc Bulger is serviceable for at least a couple more years.

    *We need a new RG to replace Incognito. Goldberg does a fine job, but I think we really need that big thumper to complete our "wall", aka Karney, Brown, Smith.

    *We need major help rushing the QB.

    *An outside linebacker should be a priority.


    So, all my previous mock drafts have us going with Jimmy Clausen in the first round. Believe it or not, that's not how it is going down this week. A lot of things are changed around, due to what I've seen in the Saints game.


    Round 1: Ndamukong Suh, [DT] 6-4, 305lbs. Nebraska

    Analysis: Oh yeaa. Finally. A stud defensive tackle to help put terror in opposing QB's minds. Suh is a beast, and he will make who ever is alongside him, be it Carriker, Ryan or Gibson, look great, as he'll bring in double teams consistently. "House of Spears" will give us a playmaker on the d-line.



    Round 2: Mike Iupati, [OG] 6-5, 350lbs. Idaho

    Analysis: Huge Samoan guy. Bigger and more physical than Incognito, but also much smarter. This guy alongside Jason Brown will give Steven Jackson so much excitement...it won't even be funny. Well, at least not to the opposing defensive tackles that will be flat on their arses. Flat out dominant in run blocking, and great in pass blocking, this guy gives us a building block to build on, alongside Jason Brown and Jason Smith. This line gives me exciting dreams.



    Round 3: Greg Romeus [DE] 6-5, 265lbs. Pittsburgh

    Analysis: Had 8 sacks as a sophmore. Very impressive. Spag's will probably turn this kid into a sack machine, which we desperately need on our d-line. Him alongside with Suh, Long, and Carriker/Ryan should make for a dominant D-line. He has good size too.



    Round 4: Quan Sturdivant [OLB] 6-3, 232lbs. North Carolina

    Analysis: Underrated linebacker IMO. Highly productive as a sophmore, notching up 122 tackles. Dang! This guy alongside Laurinaitis and Vobora should give us one hell of a solid front seven, including Long, Suh, Romeus, Ryan, and Carriker. Great size, and great tackler.



    Round 5: Brandon Brinkley [CB] 6-0, 180lbs. Houston

    Analysis: Broke up an amazing 15 passes as a junior. He also had 74 tackles and four interceptions. He'll give us good depth, maybe even compete for the nickel back role. Should give Justin King, Bradley Fletcher, Johnathan Wade, and Quincy Butler something to fight for.



    Round 5: Dan LeFevour [QB] 6-3, 230lbs. Cent. Michigan

    Analysis: I prefer this guy to Tim Hiller and Daryl Clark and Zac Robinson. Good smart player that can produce. Good build, good bulk. Very productive in 2008. Solid accuracy and arm strength.



    Round 6: Dexter McCluster [WR/RB] 5-8, 170lbs. Ole Miss

    Analysis: Can be used as receiver, but fits more at RB. Ole Miss's all-purpose back. Had a field day against Tenessee. Quick and extremely speedy, but very tough to bring down. Will fight hard for the extra yardage. Will compliment Jackson nicely.



    Round 7: Bryan Anderson [WR] 6-5, 220lbs. Central Michigan

    Analysis: Underrated. Could be the next Brandon Gibson. Great size, a physical receiver. Great, productive 2008 season. Would give us some extra potential talent at WR.



    Round 7: Brandon Carter [OG] 6-7, 365lbs. Texas Tech

    Analysis: I am very high on this guy. Great intensity, loves the game. Incredible size, should give us some good depth on the line. Dominant run blocker, will eat another d-linemen.

    I like the picks. You forgot the Rams have 2 5th rounders and 2 7th rounders.
    McCluster and Anderson might be gone before then they are both pretty talented. I was thinking how Dexter looks alot like Chris Johnson out there.

    I want Bulger to play at least next year since no qb this year is even close to being ready to play opening day next year, but we need to draft someone to groom. Pike, Lefevour and Canfield are guys I like and at least one of those guys will be there by round 3, possibly even round 4 or 5.

    Ooh, I forgot those picks. Will add them now. I agree with what you said too. If we're not picking a round 1 QB, I too would like to see us get a developmental guy to groom.

    I think Pike will go around 2-3, and Canfield maybe around 3-5. I hope LeFevour is around at round 5. I like the guy.

    Re: Rockin's Mock Draft @ Week 11 (New perspective)

    Time to critisize:

    1) One game will not change a whole draft board
    2) Now way do we leave day 1 of the draft without a QB
    explanation: Spags will not retain his job if we dont see results that come in wins. So why would he want to start a "servicable" QB. Its time to start winning
    3) Billy D wants this team to get bigger and more physical. We can get more physical than sturdivant
    4) I just dont understand the Brinkley pick. We have young depth at CB and i think we have enough nickelback guys, Brinkley would probably just be lost in the depth charts.
    5) with the game Mccluster had vs. Monte Kiffin's Tennesse D i don't think he will fall to the 6th round.
    6) Bryan Anderson could be the next Brandon Gibson? Gibson only has 7 career catches and 93 career yards. I know what you mean but it was 1 game lets not get ahead of ourselves.

    Possitives are the 2nd and 3rd round picks very well done.

    Re: Rockin's Mock Draft @ Week 11 (New perspective)

    I like suh as a first round, I love the idea of building a defense first and offense second and see our best chance at playoff's next year will be something similar to what the ravens had in their superbowl year. Amazing defense strong running game and a game manager qb. I dont see why we would take an og in the second round however, Greco will fill in nice ar rg if we let incog walk. I think a backup rb in the round or a developmental qb in that round. three and four are good picks but in round five i see us getting a solid wr more then a cb. Round six and seven are gambles that will most likely be lost in the depth charts no matter who you pick. Although there have been some gems in round six (brady, bulger).
    Edit:
    On second thought i think we should grab Mccluster in the 3rd round and move de up to second round and draft a olb in the 4th developmental qb in the 5th

    I like Suh, but I cant' agree with alot else. Definitely have to go QB earlier. Romeus and Iupati may go round one anyway. Goldberg IMO will be starting somewhere on the right side next year he has been one of our best if not our best run blocker. In an uncapped year he could start at RT in a capped year he starts at RT. The difference is the FA status of Barron.

    I dont think Romeus will go Round 1. He might be off the board in round 2, but with Dunlap, Hardy, Griffen, Kindle, and Graham projected to go higher than him right now, I think he may drop to the third, depending on how he plays, how the other players play.


    Also, Duke Robinson, last year's projected top guard, was projected to go in rounds 1-3, and dropped all the way to round 6(?) I believe. Iupati may be available when we pick in round 2.





    Since everyone wants to address QB earlier, who do we get? Tony Pike, the weak-armed QB? Johnathan Crompton? Colt McCoy?

    I like LeFevour and I believe that he will be available from rounds 4-6.

    Dexter McCluster probably won't be going in round 6. More like round 3-5. My mistake on that one.

    Okay, which QB would you suggest we pick in day one?

    Bulger is serviceable. Which means that if he has the right talent around him, he can succeed. He can win games for us.

    We had a chance to get physical and get Maulauga last year, instead of the less physical Laurinaitis. Instead, we grabbed the sure tackler, smarter player instead.

    On the Brinkley thing, I believe he would be the BPA. Underrated, could step up and potentially get a starting role. Wade hasn't shown much of anything, neither has Quincy Butler, or Justin King. Brinkley is always around the ball, he's like a poor man's version of Atogwe at the CB position. We could also have went TE at this spot, and that is another possible scenario.

    What I mean by Bryan Anderson being the next Gibson is by Devaney having the knack of drafting underrated receivers at rounds 5-7. It is believed that he really wanted Gibson, but thought that Foster might be even better. I believe Anderson could compete against Amendola for the 5th receiver spot. And possibly move up. Never wrong to have more competition. It gives us more potential, and it brings out the best in the other WR's.


    If Marc Bulger can play like he did Sunday against the Saints, and possibly even better for the rest of the season, I don't see any reason to draft a QB in day one. Better to draft a developmental guy like LeFevour. Who would we even get? Tony Pike? Colt McCoy? Tim Tebow?

    Good job overall, Rockin', but I don't follow your reasoning for a guard in the 2nd round. From what you said it seems that Cogs and Iupati are similar type of players.

    Look at this way: The Rams will either:

    1.) Resign Cogs to a long term deal and keep him at RG.

    2.) Let Cogs go and promote one of the other young guards (Greco or Setterstrom) to the starting position.

    I don't think it is wise to use a very high pick in the second round on a position that we already have sufficient depth at. At least not with all of our other needs staring us in the face.

    A couple of players that I have been following that just might be available at this point in the draft are J. Dwyer, RB from GA Tech - I agree with you that Jax needs a high quakity back up- and J. Gresham, TE from Oklahoma. (Yeah, I know that Gresham is injured, but that is why I'm hoping he will fall out of the first round.)

    And I am totally on board with the Suh pick. BTW what did you mean with your referring to "House of Spears"? Does that have something to do with Mr. Suh's name or what?

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Well this is the way i see it no way Suh makes it past the Bucs. And i think we get the 4th or 5th pick in the draft so he will be gone.

    The QB i want is Clausen or Locker cuz im sick of just re-building the trenches every year itz time 2 make a statement with a franchise QB i said day 1 qb cuz i see what your doing a draft w/o 1st round QB.

    Yea piked Jlaur over rey maug but that was more based on the 4 pillars

    I think Wade and Q. Butler have exceeded expectations this year. yea id rather go TE

    Oo i get it now lol u should have said that bout gibson B4 lol Career 7 rec 93 yrds lol. good idea

    Re: Rockin's Mock Draft @ Week 11 (New perspective)

    I like this draft, and I love Suh as our first pick. But I can't forsee us NOT taking a Quarterback on Day 1. It's really not an option, and for us to find success, we have to continue rebuildling ASAP. Which means that we can't wait another year to draft another Franchise Quarterback. I'd like to see Tony Pike, Daryll Clark, possibly McCoy or Tebow in Round 2 if we don't select a QB in Round 1.

    The funny thing about all those names you listed is Romeus has just as many or more sacks than them. He also is the best run defender and only Dunlap who is overrated IMO has better size.

    Ok if the top guard dropped to round 6? then why would we take him in the second when we can get him later. With alot bigger needs and talent already at the position we dont need to take a guard that early anyways.

    Except, Dunlap has great size, and great speed for his size, which will mean that he will be drafted by a guy like Al Davis, or someone else who likes big, fast guys. Dunlap IMO is overrated, but like I said, some GM's like incredible athletes. I think the only way Romeus has a shot of sneaking in at round 1, is if Greg Hardy continues to be plagued by injuries, Dunlap still continues to not try, and Graham and Griffen and Kindle stop producing.


    No one knew Robinson was going to drop to round 6. That's like saying, "Oh yea, Brady Quinn is going to drop all the way to the 22nd pick. We can always just trade back up and grab him."

    There's no way we know for sure that Mike Iupati is going to drop all the way down to round 6. Just like no one knew Robinson was.

    If you've never watched Iupati in action, he pancakes everyone in his way. Bulger needs a solid line and some good receivers to throw to. Why not give him another solid rookie who can develop to be even better. IMO, Incognito might not be here next year, Goldberg might be taking over RT, Greco could be manning the left guard depending on how Bell plays out, and that leaves a hole at RG, unless you think Setterstrom or Roger Allen can step up and man the starting role. Setterstrom isn't bad, but he's very injury-prone.

    Don't get me wrong...I love Clausen. But there are some rumors that he might stay for another year. But if he doesn't stay for another year, I think it will be between Suh and Clausen for our first round pick.

    If for the rest of the season, our DT's play better than Bulger, I would love to get Clausen. If they play equal to Bulger, I would still like Clausen. But if Bulger outperforms our DT's, it's time for us to upgrade.

    Ryan and Ramsey are good run stuffers, but not good against the pass. Ah You is terrible against the run, and not really all that good against the pass either.

    I hope the Rams will go with a McCluster or Noel Devine type pick in the 4th round. Thunder / Lightening. Man that McCluster is just a freak.
