  • B Dub's 2010 mock draft

    So we just lost to the Packers and after that lose itz time to do a 2010 mock draft.

    Round 1: Tim Tebow QB, Florida 6-3 235 pounds
    Alternate Pick: Dez Bryant

    If we pick inside the top 7 its going to be a QB. If not i think we go Dez Bryant.

    Analysis: Billy D and Spags are building toward a bigger more physical football team. Tebow is 6-3 235 and is a physical runner. The reason i have Tebow is because Pat Shurmur looked more comfortable with a mobile QB behind center. Also something about Tebow yea scouts say his game might not transfer well to the nfl but leadership and work ethic will drive Tebow to live up to potential. And no Tebow wont just be a wildcat QB. I think Bulger stays for next year and Tebow will be waiting in the wings.

    Round 2: Brandan Lafell WR, LSU 6-3 209 pounds
    Alternate Pick: Brandan Graham DE

    If Benn, Bryant, and williams out of USC all declare Lafell might drop all the way to the 2nd round. But that is still up in the air so DE Graham is a solid pick.

    Analysis: Bigger more physical is the motto of the Rams new regime. Brandan Lafell is a big physical WR. He would make a solid #2. We have to wait and see on Laurant Robinson but if he can emerge as a go-to target we can use Lafell as #2 and Avery as #3. But if Lafell is off the board we can take a 270 pound pass rushing LE Graham. He can start in the sub packages on the DL and later start across Chris Long. But Graham can flat out get penetration.

    Round 3: Matt Reynolds OT/OG 6-6 320 pounds
    Alternate pick: John Jerry OG

    I put Matt Reynolds there but im not sure he will declare.

    Analysis: Reynolds is a good OL. That is solid vs. the Run and pass. He can be used as a guard or a Tackle. He is basically a utility OL. John Jerry is a huge guard 6-5 350 pounds. He is very physical vs. the run. His pass protection is iffy thou. But he would be a solid pick if Bell cant block well we can drop him and start Jerry or Reynolds.

    Round 4: Jermaine Cunningham DE Florida 6-3 250 pounds

    Analysis: Plays opposite Carlos Dunlap. He is a situational pass rusher. He is destined to be Little's replacement.

    Round 5: Colin Peek TE Alabama 6-6 255 pounds

    Analysis: Blocking TE. Bajema is only signed for a year. Mcmichael is out. And we can use Fells as the receiving TE and Peek as the blocking TE.

    Round 6: Myron Rolle S Florida State 6-2 218 pounds

    Analysis: We need some depth at saftey. Yea Rolle chose academics over athletics but he can run a 4-4 40 at 6-2. He can probably help us on special teams.

    Round 7: Vinny Rey LB Duke 6-0 245 pounds

    Analysis: wrap-up tackler. We need depth at LB so here is that pick.

    Round 7: Sherrick McManis CB northwestern 6-1 190 pounds

    Analysis: well hopefully he can be better than tye hill

    Heisman trophy winners frighten me.

    I think Charles Woodson's the last one who actually had a truly successful NFL career. Carson Palmer,Reggie Bush and Ron Dayne are kind of meh, and certainly have not played to the level they were drafted at, but they are the next closest after him.

    I think the last truly good Heisman QB to go to be successful in the NFL would Flutie. Maybe Ty Detmer.

      Appreciate the effort, but I can't say I'm a fan of this mock.

      Tebow simply does not display the fundamentals required to be an NFL quarterback. His best tools aren't as a passer but rather his ability to run. That's not what you're looking for in a Top 10 QB pick. It's unlikely that he'll make many contributions throwing the ball for a couple of seasons simply because he'll have to be reworked completely - footwork, vision, accuracy, progressions. Tebow may sneak into the first round after wowing scouts and personnel people in interviews, but I'd be incredibly disappointed if the Rams spend a high first round pick on him.

      LaFell is probably appropriate for a high second round receiver at this point, but I'm a bit concerned about his ability to separate at the next level. I'd also like to get more out of our second round pick than "a solid #2" WR. If that's how you view him, maybe there's someone else who can more than a solid secondary player at another position.

      I would be surprised to say the least if a three-year sophomore declared for the NFL draft, so that's all I'll really say on Reynolds. He probably has more to gain by staying in school and honing his craft than leaving way too early.

      Cunningham has an arrest in his past, so he may not fit the Four Pillars. It doesn't sound as if he's had a particularly strong senior season so far, and it doesn't help that the last couple DE's to come out of that program haven't amounted to much so far.

      If the Rams want a blocking tight end, they can resign Bajema. If they pursue a young rookie tight end, I'd rather it be someone who may be able to make some plays for them offensively, as that's what they need.

      The fact that Rolle is spending the 2009 year away from football may hurt his stock, but it sounds like he has a strong plan in place to be ready for the offseason workouts and tests. If he shows up in any kind of football shape, I doubt he's available here.

      I'm not so sure we need depth at linebacker with Vobora, Grant, Chamberlain, etc. If anything, we may need a new starter @ SLB. But if the Rams can turn another 7th round pick into some solid depth, that won't be anything to sneeze at I guess.

      McManis is probably fine for a seventh rounder. He's made some plays, so maybe you hope he can crack into the dime defense or challenge for a depth spot.

        If Tebow is there in round two, we better pick him up.

        First round should go to an immediate weapon. I like Cody right now. We are a defensive minded team, just keep upgrading that squad.

        Take Tebow in round two. Snag the best guard in round three.

        Take a wide receiver in round four.

        The rest, I don't care.

          Ramsong Mock 1.0
          by Ramsong
          I never think it's too early for mocks, and even though they are usually ridiculous speculation, I think it's fun and generates some debate. So here goes:

          Round 1: Ndamukong Suh, DT Nebraska - Whether or not we pick #1 overall...Whatever it takes to get this guy, we must do it, even if it means trading up to get him. He is a freak of nature. On top of that, he's intelligent, articulate, a superb athlete and fits the 4 Pillars to a tee.

          And we can't be afraid to draft another DT despite Kennedy, Carriker (playing out of position), Pickett etc. and their results.

          I think he would instantly make Ryan, Long, Lauranitis and Company a better and potent front 7. Starter from day 1.

          Round 2: Dez Bryant, WR OK State - This one is iffy because many feel he is a top 10 talent, but he just may slip into the top of the 2nd with the NCAA suspension...Just might put off some NFL execs.

          We need to be drafting BPA available regardless of position, because we are desperate for playmakers on BOTH sides of the ball. Bryant just happens to fit a need as well. Big, fast, strong. There have been some questions about his hands, but that's something that can be coached.

          Alternates here (if we go WR) include Golden Tate, ND / Brandon LaFell, LSU / Damian Williams USC & Aurelious Benn, ILL (who was hurt by the wacky offensive system at ILL and lack of a productive QB this year.)

          Round 3: Tim Tebow, QB Florida - OK, before you start ripping me, please hear me out. By round 3, Bradford, Locker, Claussen, McCoy will all probably be gone. Tebow may as well, but if he is there at the top of round 3, you almost HAVE to take him.

          I keep hearing about his mechanics and delivery. Trust me, these are things that can be fixed at the NFL level, at least with the right coach.

          One thing you can't fix, is the desire and will to win. This guy has that in spades. He is the type of guy that will put a team on his shoulders and absolutely carry them to a win. When was the last time we had that at Rams Park?

          His footwork is not an issue, as he is very mobile and athletic. I want a guy like this on my team, the perfect example of BPA and great value at the top of round 3.

          QB alternates here include Dan LeFevour (another favorite), Tony Pike and Zac Robinson. A deep class for QBs.

          Round 4: Toby Gerhart, RB Stanford - This guy is a stud, and may fall to the top of round 4. He would be the perfect compliment and ultimate replacement for Jackson. Bruising runner and good pass catcher, plus the dude can block. He also throws the ball well.

          Options here at RB include Noel Devine, but I think round 4 is a little high for Devine because of his size. He would be a great change of pace back though.

          Alternate picks would be DE and OLB - BPA.

          Round 5.1: Roddrick Muckelroy, OLB Texas
          Round 5.2: Alex Carrington,

          B-Dub's Mock Draft
          by BarronWade
          So i had 3 mock off-seasons but this is my sole mock draft.

          Round 1 Pick 1: QB Sam Bradford, Oklahoma
          Alternative Pick: Suh
          Pervious pick: Sam Bradford
          Analysis: We need a franchise QB and that is what he get.

          Round 2 Pick 1: DE Carlos Dunlap, Florida
          Alternative Pick: Jahvid Best
          Previous Pick: Brandon Lafell
          Analysis: PLEASE READ!! before you guys jump to conclusions and just shoot down this pick understand what he can do. Yes he did get arrested for a DUI but so did Bradley Fletcher last year and we drafted him. The guys has very nice physical skills and high talent level and is still raw. But look who our head coach is. I think he will be motivated with the Rams. He looks across the field he sees Chris Long a high motor young guy who trys every play. He goes to the bench and sees a veteran like James hall and a guy in Adeyinju who can take his spot. I know this pick will be criticized.

          Round 3 *TRADE*: DT ALbert Haynsworth from Washington
          Alternative Pick: Rob Gronkowski
          Previous pick: Corey Wooten
          Analysis: The Redskins pick 4th then dont have a draft pick till the 4th round. So they pick up the Rams 3rd rounder and Adam Carriker + 2011 pick based on Haynsworth's performance. But they pay for some of Fat Al's contract. The Rams pay him about 6-7 mill a year. We give up alot but we dont pay much.

          Round 4 Pick 1: TE Jimmy Graham, Miami
          Alternative Pick Kyle Calloway
          Previous Pick: Montario Hardesty
          Analysis: We need a TE that can catch the ball. Graham has upside we take the risk get him and see if he can turn into the next Antonio Gates.

          Round 5 Pick 1: OT Sam young, Notre Dame
          Alternative Pick: Mike Johnson
          Previous Pick : Mike Johnson
          Analysis: Some depth at OT

          Round 5 Pick 32: OLB Kavell Connor
          Alternative Pick: none
          Previous pick: Lagarret Blount
          Analysis: Depth at LB

          Round 6 Pick 1: DE Kevin Basped
          Alternative Pick: none
          Previous Pick: none
          Analysis: very raw DE. Could use coaching.

          Round 7 Pick 1: OG Sergio Render
          Analysis: Depth at guard probably wont make team

          Round 7 Pick 19: P Jolton Mesko
          Alternative Pick: Armanti Edwards
          Analysis: yep why not a Punter

          Round 7 Pick 47: CB Patrick Stoudamire
          Analysis: MR. Almost Irrelevent

          Post Draft signing: RB Brian Westbrook

          2010 Depth:

          QB: Sam Bradford, feely, Null
          RB: Action Jackson. Westbrook, Darby, Oggie
          FB: Mike Karney

          WR1: Laurant Robinson, Brandon Gibson, Danny boy

          B-Dub's Rams Mock draft 2.0 (Pisa starting MLB?)
          by BarronWade
          Iight last time i did a mock i had the rams trading up to get James Laurinitis in the late 1st. This is a different mock draft without trades.

          Round 1 Pick 2: Eugene Monroe OT
          Alternate Pick: Jason Smith OT
          Why: We just lost Pace and i dont want to wait till the 2nd round to pick up a tackle so IMO we take the best tackle in the Draft. Monroe is better than Smith in the Run and has better footwork and can come in and produce right away.

          Round 2 Pick 35: Ron Brace NT
          Alternate pick: Lesean McCoy RB, Clint Sintim SLB, DJ Moore DB
          Why: we get a big run stopping NT. Cliff Ryan and Brace can team up well at the NT position in Spags DL subs scheme. Also here is somthing worth thinking about. With a big run stopping NT do we need a run stopping MLB? So if we get a big NT i think Pisa can take the MLB position (short term to see how it goes).

          Round 3 Pick 66: Louis Murphy WR
          Alternate Pick: Rashad Jennings RB
          Why: Murphy is taller than 6-2 has great leaping ability and seperation ability and good hands. However there is a chance this guy goes before #66. If he does we get Action Jackson's back-up in Rashad Jennings. I am not a fan on Ramses Barden because i just dont know if he can seperate in the NFL.

          Round 4 Pick 99: Rhett Bomar QB
          Alternate Pick: Zack Follett SLB
          Why: We need a back-up for Marc Bulger so we take the best available in the 4th. Or here is a guy worth looking at. Zack Follet he is going to be a reach here but he could be a really good SLB who excells in the run and is a great blitzer (good for spags) however he is not good in the pass but we would have pisa in the middle for that.

          Round 5 Pick 130: Kyle Moore DE
          Alternate Pick: Tom Brandstater
          Why: I love the way spags always subs the DL and Kyle Moore would be great for that. If he dont get a QB earlier then we go for Tom Brandstater

          Round 6 Pick 163: Frantz Joseph MLB
          Alternative Pick: Ian Johnson RB
          Why: Joseph can add depth as a big MLB. I know we just took Vabora last year but Joseph is taller and is better vs. the run. Or we can take a Change of Pace back in Johnson.

          Round 7 Pick 195: Devin Moore RB
          Alternative pick: Brandon Hughes DB
          Why: Devin Moore is a Change of Pace RB that can return kicks which is really good.

          Also i got question if we draft Curry is Loadholt or Merideth worth the 35th pick? IMO both arent however i would say wait till the 3rd and take that Cadogen.

          Also what is your opinion on the Pisa to MLB?

          3 Round Mock
          by sntlouisrams
          I'm not fully informed on all college players (live within UK so kinda hard to keep up on that, but i try)

          ROUND 1 DT N.Suh

          The reason for this pick is fairly straight forward, strong dt that will demand double teams. Proven solid DT will help whole defence get better and overall a sure fire first pick.

          ROUND 2 QB: C.McCoy

          Reason for picking McCoy I think although people will say he has played in a micky mouse offence etc and slate him for this. He is a solid leader good completion rate and behind a good qb coach I personally feel we could find a real gem in getting him here.

          ROUND 3 WR/KR/RB D.McCluster

          Reasoning for this pick fairly straight forward. McCluster is a pure out and out playmaker, in whatever position we choose to use him in. Chris Johnson is not the biggest RB in the league he seemed to do pretty well for himself. McCluster would give us options however we give him the ball.

          Bralidore's MOCK DRAFT: The Rough Draft
          by Bralidore(RAMMODE)
          Round 1: Ndamukong Suh DT: The House of Spears, will improve the entire defense if he can live up to even half of the hype he has garnered. Excellent strength that can increase, intelligent, uses hands very well, playmaker at DT.

          Round 2: Sean Weatherspoon OLB: Side line to Sideline defender, can make things happen, can come in and start immediately and compliment JLau tremendously.

          Round 3: Dexter Mccluster RB/WR: PLAYMAKER, I'd consider trading back up into the second round to acquire this guy... is one of those guys that can take it to the house anytime he touches the ball, excellent agility and quickness, sick juking moves and change of direction skills, can be utilized at receiver, runningback, and special teams. Could be the Rams utility man. WARNING: Stock on the rise after performing excellent so far at Senior Bowl, could very likely go higher.

          Round 4: George Selvie DE: Once considered one of the best pass rushers in college football, he has taken a fall from grace after greatly under performing this past season. Great Size and burst off the edge with good speed. Likely a steal this low and could quite possibly go higher.

          Round 5 #1: Jimmy Graham TE: About as tall as it gets in the NFL. Converted basketball player with potential off the freakin' charts. Fast, Quick, Agile due to all that basketball learnin'. Good ball skills and run after the catch ability. Would be a project at Tight End but Daniel Fells can be serviceable in the meantime and If this guy can reach his potential we have Kellen Winslow/Antonio Gates Hybrid on our hands that's taller. If he's there TAKE HIM.

          Round 5 #2: Danario Alexander WR: Great Size, outstanding leaper, very productive with run after the catch ability. Plays stiff sometimes and apparently has trouble getting in and out of his cuts. Doesn't seem to ahve the acceleration wanted for the position. could be a great Red zone threat and legit receiver with some more coaching. Injury History.

          Round 6: Ciron Black RG/RT: Was highly touted before this season. Was a highly durable 4 year anchor on the line for LSU. Big (6'5 322) with good strength and a great run blocker. I'd move him inside as he has trouble with speed rushers and his strength is not at the tackle position IMO. Was seen by some to have been a first second round pick but has watched his stock plummet after under achieving and could possibly fall to us here. Would be great value at a position of need.

          Round 7 #1: Legarrette Blount RB: Physical Downhill punisher, Has good speed to break one. Draft stock plummeted due to Boise State incident and character concerns. Physical Specimen with great size. Has steal written all over him.

          Round 7 #2: BPA

          Now of course this an ideal draft with an outside chance of happening. Will update accordingly. This is all assuming the Rams stay with the picks they have now and don't gain any additional o...
