    Sakl18's Mock Draft

    In this mock, I wanted to focus on adding playmakers on both side of the ball. I realize that I didn't address DT, but I suspect that Fishead will add another DT via free agency. It also wouldn't surprise me if Amendola ends up going to New England for their second round pick. In that case, that pick would turn into a defensive tackle. Any feedback, regardless if it's positive or negative, is appreciated.

    1.6 - Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
    6'1, 207 lbs, 4.45 40

    • Constant source of big plays
    • Ridiculous production
    • Good hands
    • Polished route runner
    • Tremendous YAC
    • Strong work ethic
    • Has ability to go up for ball
    • Has been compared to Terrell Owens

    Assuming Blackmon is there, he will be the pick. He instantly becomes the Rams go-to number one receiver.

    2.1 - Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
    6'4, 215 lbs, 4.36 40

    • Elite size/speed combination
    • Displays good concentration; rarely if ever drops ball
    • Great deep threat
    • Good body control; can make acrobatic catches
    • Very raw route runner

    The Rams double up at wide receiver. Giving Bradford weapons is paramount, and Stephen Hill has the potential to be an elite receiver. Paired with Blackmon, the Rams could have the best one-two punch at receiver in the NFL in a couple years. Hill is a tremendous deep threat, and can do one thing this team lacks: make plays

    2.6 - Kelechi Osmele, OG, Iowa State
    6'6, 333 lbs, 32 bench reps

    • Longest arms at combine
    • Athletic for size
    • Powerful run blocker
    • Quick feet
    • Has a nasty streak
    • Can play guard or right tackle
    • Good reputation as teammate and leader
    • Durable and experienced

    Osmele will help do the other most important thing for St. Louis - keep Bradford on his feet. He's a mauling run blocker who can open holes for Jackson, and has the potential to swing out to right tackle should Jason Smith continue to struggle.

    3.2 - Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska
    6'1, 233, 4.65 40

    • Great speed
    • Tremendous instincts
    • Fantastic tackler
    • Great in run support and coverage
    • Playmaker
    • Strong 3 down backer who can blitz

    If it wasn't for his height, Lavonte David would be in contention with Zach Brown as the top OLB this year. As it is, he could be a tremendous steal in the third round. He has sideline to sideline speed and fantastic instincts. He can play on all three downs and just makes plays, which this defense badly needs. Oh, and the player he most often reminds people of? Derrick Brooks.

    4.1 - Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State
    5'10, 222 lbs, 4.44 40. 28 bench reps

    • Incredible strength for a running back
    • Strong downhill runner
    • Has good, but not breakaway speed
    • Very quick
    • Great acceleration; gets to top speed quickly
    • Good pad level; stays low
    • Doesn't go down on first contact; keeps legs moving
    • Good hands out of the backfield

    The quest for SJ's backup finally ends. While Turbin may not be his eventual replacement, he can spell him and fill in well enough should Jackson go down with injury. He is a bruising power back with terrific quickness out of his breaks and has the potential to be a great committee back and spot starter.

    6.1 - Ryan Broyles, WR, Oklahoma
    5'10, 192

    • Simply doesn't drop the ball
    • Willingly goes over the middle
    • Very elusive and picks up YAC
    • Incredibly productive, 349 career receptions (NCAA record)
    • Projects as slot receiver
    • Fast, but doesn't have game breaking speed
    • Effective punt returner

    Ryan Broyles was a second round pick before tearing his ACL at the end of the season. He should be able to go for the start of the year, but he will probably be limited due to missing training camp. I'm not sure if he will last to the sixth round, but if he does he could be an absolute steal moving forward. He is also familiar with Bradford as they played together at Oklahoma.

    7.2 - Greg McCoy, CB/KR, TCU
    5'10, 182

    • Elite speed
    • Productive kick returner
    • Coverage needs improvement

    McCoy is drafted for his special teams ability, not as a corner. If he develops into a decent corner, great, if not, oh well. He was very productive for TCU as a kick returner, being named the Mountain West Conference's Special Teams Player of the Year in 2011. He would be an instant upgrade over the Rams current return unit.

    I like it. Broyles would be a beast.

    You did remind me of Broyles, as I had forgotten about him. However, I do remember seeing your mock and also thinking "Wow, that looks a lot like my mock!"

    Re: Sakl18's Mock Draft

    I like all the picks really...just not 3 WR's...either take out Hill or Broyles and add in a DT or OT and this is an amazing draft....

    good job
    Built RAM tough
