Av's Rams 7 Round Mock (3/20/13)


  • Av's Rams 7 Round Mock (3/20/13)

    Here's my current projection, based upon who I think could be available, who I believe the Rams might be targeting, and who I hope they select:

    Round 1 (#16): Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
    I'm about 50/50 on whether Warmack will make it this far, but he is, in my opinion, too good a prospect to pass up. He'd be an immediate starter and, along with the addition of Jake Long, would give the Rams the most talented OL its had in years.

    Round 1 (#22): Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
    There are two things that Les Snead has said that make me think Austin could be the pick here. First, he has repeatedly stressed the need to acquire playmakers. Second, when asked about Mike Wallace, he stated "we already have that guy" (referring to Chris Givens). Well... we certainly don't have a guy like Austin.

    Round 2 (#46): Eric Reid, S, LSU
    I love the idea of Reid at this spot. Another immediate starter and, in my opinion, a player who has been downgraded more than he should have been. Plus, he has the same type of physical attidude as Finnegan, Jenkins and Johnson.

    Round 3 (#78): Sio Moore, OLB, UConn
    My top sleeper (though his workouts have caused more and more people to notice him). Moore has the reputation of being very disciplined and has the ability to play both the strong and weak side. Also has some pass rush skills, which could be utilized in blitz packages.

    Round 4 (#113): Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida
    My top RB, Le'Veon Bell, should be long gone by this point, but the Rams get another young back for their stable here. Gillislee can run between the tackles, and has enough speed to break a big play. He'd compliment Richardson and Pead well, I believe.

    Round 5 (#149): Earl Wolff, S, North Carolina State
    Similar to last year, when the Rams took two WRs and two RBs in the draft, the Rams go back to the well at safety. Wolff is an underrated prospect. He may not be a superstar, but he does everything well and has the speed (4.44 at the Combine) to guard against big plays.

    Round 6 (#184): Brandon Williams, DT, Missouri Southern State
    Williams is a monster sized (6'2, 325) small school prospect. He turned some heads during Senior Bowl week, and could be a valuable addition to the Rams DL rotation.

    Round 7 (#222): Rod Sweeting, CB, Georgia Tech
    You can never have too many CBs. Sweeting is a smart player who surprised with at 4.42 forty at the Combine. I like his potential as a special teams player and as depth in the DB.

    by MFranke
    RamView, January 3, 2016 Game #16: ***** 19, Rams 16 (OT) The ever-inconsistent Rams regress back to the mean and end another losing season with another disappointing loss to a team they had no business losing to. The hallmark of Jeff Fisher Rams football isn't the running game or aggressive defense, it's miserable losses like this one. Good riddance to 2015. Position by position: * QB: Case Keenum (23-37-231, PR 77.6) does a lot right for the Rams at QB. He runs the offense with good tempo an...

  • Rams lose 19-16 in OT to whiners; The Good, Bad and Ugly
    by general counsel
    The Todd Gurley-less Rams finished their season 7-9 with a disappointing OT loss to the whiners by the score of 19-16 on the strength of terrible third down play on both sides of the ball, untimely penalties, terrible field goal kicking and some highly suspect play calling with the team poised to win the game in overtime. The Rams shortcomings against a 5-11 couldnt have been more obvious today. At the end of the day, Case Keenum is not an NFL starting qb, albeit a reasonable backup. Way too...

  • Rams beat seachickens 23-17; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly
    by general counsel
    In what should be considered their most impressive win in the Fisher era, the Rams won their third game in a row by beating and beating up the seachickens in a tremendous 23-17 win. The Rams capitalized on 3 seachicken turnovers (one of which resulted in a defensive touchdown), didn't turn the ball over themselves, kept the penalties to a minimum, and scrounged out just enough offense to earn their first season sweep of the chickens since 2004. The Rams played their best half of the year jumping...

    by clarasDK
    Good write up.

    I think it was ugly that we accepted the penalty with the Seagulla on 4 and 10. Giving them a new (long) third down. I am pretty sure they would not have gone for it on 4 and 10.

    Else great game.

    RamView, December 17, 2015 Game #14: Rams 31, Bucs 23 If this was the Rams' last week in St. Louis, at least they made it a heck of a week. They won for the second time in five days Thursday night and made the Bucs look like the team that could not cut the mustard. Position by position: * QB: Case Keenum (14-17-234, 2 TD, PR 158.0) managed the heck out of this game. He led the Rams to an opening drive TD throwing little but screens and swing passes. But Case did not live on small ball alone, a...
