  • Av's 7 Round Rams Mock Draft


    Round 1 (1): Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
    This choice will be overanalyzed to death in the coming months, but to me its a simple one. Suh is the best player in the draft. That's who the Rams should take.


    Round 2 (33): Demaryius Thomas, WR, Georgia Tech
    Thomas is built like Anquan Boldin, and could be a similar type player. The numbers he put up at GaTech (over 1,000 yards and over 24 yards per catch) are amazing considering the type of offense the Yellowjackets run.


    Round 3 (65): Dan LeFevour, QB, Central Michigan
    I was on the fence regarding LeFevour until I saw him play in the GMAC Bowl. He has all the tools and the intangible qualities to be a future NFL starter.


    Round 4 (97): Sam Young, OT, Notre Dame
    Meet our new RT. Young has very good size and played in a true Pro-style offense. I don't think he's a future LT prospect, but he is the type of guy who could step in and play as a rookie.


    Round 5 (129): Montario Hardesty, RB, Tennessee
    Is this wishful thinking? With several Junior RBs declaring, maybe not. If Hardesty is still on the board at this point in the draft, the Rams should snatch him up. Steven Jackson's back will thank them for it.


    Round 5 (152): Brandon Sharpe, DE/OLB, Texas Tech
    What position would Sharpe, who has 3-4 defense written all over him, play? Pass rusher. DE or OLB? Pass rusher. That's his job, and he'll do it well.


    Round 6 (161): Perry Riley, OLB, LSU
    The late rounds are a good time to address LB depth. Riley would compete for a role among the Rams no-name OLBs.


    Round 7 (193): Reed Williams, MLB, West Virginia
    When you look at a guy like Williams, you wish he was just a bit taller, just a bit bigger. He's not a likely starter, but he's a football player who could help on special teams and in spot duty behind James Laurinaitis.


    Round 7 (211): Jarvis Geathers, OLB, Central Florida
    Another pass rush specialist/special teams prospect.

    Interesting mock. Last I heard, however, we have two picks in the 7th round; ours and the one we got from Atlanta in the Tye Hill trade.

      Right you are. I've added one more selection. Local guy for me.

        Av, this is a great mock and is plausible. Although I really like McCoy, getting Thomas and picking up LeFevour in the 3rd alone would make this an A+ draft in my book. And the "experts" will also love it lol

          Good work Av. I really like this mock, and I hope the Rams draft turns into something like this.

          Do you think Kyle Calloway or Ciron Black will be taken before our pick in the 4th round or do you believe Sam Young is a better right tackle prospect?

            I really like it, Av.

            If this is how the draft plays out, who starts opposite Chris Long at DE next year?

              Black is probably a Round 2 or 3 guy. Calloway could fall to the top of Round 4, but probably will be gone in Round 3. I'd rank all three fairly close at this point. After the Combine, I'll have a stronger feeling about ranking them.

              With Suh on board, I think the Rams can afford fill the spot with a mid-level FA. I like the idea of signing Darryl Tapp away from the Seahawks.

                Honestly its very very good!

                But i dont like the 2nd round pick. I think we have many young receivers that have the potential to be starters. If we get a receiver it should be a veteran.

                  WRs present a bit of a Catch-22. Rookies rarely make a big splash. FAs are typically overpriced (and, in many cases, on the downside of their careers by the time they hit the market).

                  What I like about Thomas is he is nothing like any receiver on the Rams' roster. He is 6'3, 230. I like his potential to create matchup problems.

                    I really like the mock Av, I'd be very optimistic if we came away with these players.

                      Good mock. One question though. So you believe Thomas would be the best WR in Round 2, and be better than any other TE prospects?

                        While most would probably disagree with this statement, I have Thomas ranked as the second best WR in the draft behind Dez Bryant.

                        Watching GaTech play this year, it amazed me that any WR could distinguish himself in that offense. Its really a throwback option offense that reminds me of the old days of the Big 10. As a team, the Yellowjackets completed only 78 passes for 1,774 yards and 11 TDs this year. Of that total, Thomas was responsible for 46 receptions, 1,154 yards and 8 TDs. So, not only were his numbers impressive on their own, he achieved them in an offense in which he was the only real receiving threat (no other player on the team had more than 8 receptions).

                          Overall, a very good mock. I'm not sure there's a single pick in there that I'd be broken up about, and I think you've valued everyone rather appropriately. Nice work, Av!

                            I have a major problem with this mock. It's simply too good. I'd be foolish to continue reading any others at this point. And that leaves an awful lot of time until the draft to do nothing but hope for what you have right hear. And considering my lack of imagination, I may now have to tune out, go into a sports coma, or play some Strat to occupy my time.

                            Super! Just fantastic! I really hope your proud of yourself!

                              LOL Maybe I should have gone with my first draft, in which all my selections were from New Mexico State.

                                Av's "Top 35" Mock (UPDATED)
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                Here's my final Top 35 Mock, updated due to the recent trades:

                                1. Detroit Lions – Matthew Stafford, QB, Georgia
                                2. St. Louis Rams – Jason Smith, OT, Baylor
                                I think its a toss-up between Smith and Monroe, but in the end, I think the Rams will go with Smith due to his upside and his charisma. The hope there is that Smith and Brown, who are both smart guys with strong leadership skills, will bring the O line together. For all his talent, Pace never had that personality. In some ways, the Rams line has lacked an identity since the donut brothers left.
                                3. Kansas City Chiefs – Brian Orakpo, DE, Texas
                                4. Seattle Seahawks – Mark Sachez, QB, USC
                                5. Cleveland Browns – Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest
                                6. Cincinnati Bengals – B.J. Raji, DT, Boston College
                                7. Oakland Raiders – Michael Crabtree, WR, Texas Tech
                                8. Jacksonville Jaguars – Eugene Monroe, OT, Virginia
                                9. Green Bay Packers – Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU
                                10. San Francisco Niners – Andre Smith, OT, Alabama
                                11. Buffalo Bills – Malcolm Jenkins, CB, Ohio State
                                12. Denver Broncos – Brian Cushing, OLB, USC
                                13. Washington Redskins – Jeremy Maclin, WR, Missouri
                                14. New Orleans Saints – Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois
                                15. Houston Texans – Michael Oher, OT, Ole Miss
                                16. San Diego Chargers – Everette Brown, DE, FSU
                                17. New York Jets – Josh Freeman, QB, Kansas State
                                18. Denver Broncos – Darrius Butler, CB, Connecticut
                                19. Tampa Bay Bucs – Peria Jerry, DT, Ole Miss
                                20. Detroit Lions – Eben Britton, OT, Arizona
                                21. Philadelphia Eagles – Brandon Pettigrew, TE, Oklahoma State
                                22. Minnesota Vikings – William Moore, S, Missouri
                                23. New England Patriots – Connor Barwin, LB/DE, Cincinnati
                                24. Atlanta Falcons – Rey Maualuga, MLB, USC
                                25. Miami Dolphins – Robert Ayers, DE/LB, Tennessee
                                26. Baltimore Ravens – Clint Sintim, LB, Virginia
                                27. Indianapolis Colts – Chris Wells, RB, Ohio State
                                28. Buffalo Bills – William Beatty, OT, Connecticut
                                29. New York Giants – Kenny Britt, WR, Rutgers
                                30. Tennessee Titans – Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR, Maryland
                                31. Arizona Cardinals – Alex Mack, C, California
                                32. Pittsburgh Steelers – Eric Wood, C, Louisville
                                33. Detroit Lions – Evander “Ziggy” Hood, DT, Missouri
                                34. New England Patriots – James Laurinaitis, MLB, Ohio State
                                35. St. Louis Rams - Hakeem Nicks, WR, North Carolina
                                Yes, I'm buying into the latest "rumor." Still, this will be a tough call, as Ron Brace, Evander Hood and Clay Matthews are still on the board. Nicks, though, can really solidify the Rams offense. He can be the chain-mover to compliment home-run threat Avery. The thought here is that, if the Rams can score points and control the ball, they might be able to manage with a defense that is still in need of a talent influx. This pick certainly guarantees that the Rams will take a defensive player in Round...

                                Av's FINAL Rams Draft Board
                                by AvengerRam_old

                                Av's FINAL* 7-Round Rams Mock
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                For my FINAL* mock, I'm going back to the standard "no trades" format.

                                The * is there in case the Rams make a trade that is announced before the draft begins, in which case I would modify my mock accordingly.

                                So... after the longest draft season ever (with 9 days still to go) here is my last projection for the 2014 Rams draft:

                                1(2): Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
                                Perhaps more so than in any other draft, I find myself uncertain as to who the Rams will draft first. I'm assuming that Jadeveon Clowney is selected first overall, as I don't think the Rams would pass on him if he falls to No. 2. From there, its down to four players: Robinson, Jake Matthews, Khalil Mack and Sammy Watkins. I could see the Rams taking any of them. Ultimately, though, I have to make a choice, so I went with Robinson, who I believe provides the best combination of need-filling and superstar potential. He might start his career at OG, where I think he has All-Pro potential, before moving to OT in the long run. An opening day line of Long, Saffold, Wells, Robinson and Barksdale sounds pretty good to me.


                                1(13): Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech
                                The Rams would love to see Mike Evans still on the board here, but I don't see that happening. As a result, I think the Rams will want to address the DB and, given the choice, my gut tells me that they'll favor a CB over a S. Justin Gilbert will likely be gone by this point, and Darqueze Dennard might be as well. Fuller is a "riser,"who some (Mike Mayock) have rated as the top CB in the draft. He'd be a great addition to Gregg Williams' defense.

                                2(44): Kelvin Benjamin, WR, FSU
                                Benjamin started as a hot, rising prospect, and has now cooled a bit, making the prospect of him being on the board at pick No. 44 reasonable. While I don't think the Rams view WR as a primary need, Benjamin is a unique prospect. From a physical standpoint, he shares more traits with Jimmy Graham than he does with most WRs. While his skills are a bit raw, he'd be a great third down and Red Zone option from Day 1. He'd also put pressure on players like Brian Quick, Austin Pettis, and even Kenny Britt to earn their roster spots.

                                3(75): Terrence Brooks, FS, FSU
                                The Rams go back to the Tallahassee well and select Brooks to fill the CF role in the Rams defensive backfield. Though not physically imposing at 5'11, 198, Brooks is tough and very fast (4.42). He will allow the Rams young CB to play a lot closer to the line of scrimmage than they did last year, taking away the quick passes that, more than any opposing OL, occasionally neutralized the Rams pass rush.

                                4(110): Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
                                I have to admit that I'm not the biggest Murray fan out there. I have concerns about his size and arm strength. That said, he was extremely productive playing in a pro-style offense in the toughest division in college football. That should...

                                Do you think the Rams will trade down to #18?
                                by Guest
                                This is a really stupid mock draft cuz the 1st 3 picks are O-linemen. But recently (after the lions got shwatz) ive been seeing Andre Smith as the #1 pick in the draft.

                                SO if the Lions do get Smith what do da Rams do?

                                I think it would be best to trade the pick cuz getting Oher here is too early and Curry is a great linebacker but #2 is too high for him.

                                Most possible trades are #6 Cinncinati, #7Oakland, #9 Jacksonville, all the way back to #18 chicago.

                                This would work out great cuz the Rams would get picks and take away Micheal Crabtree from Division Rival Seattle Seahawks.

                                Cinncinati and Oakland have too many whole to fill in the draft and i dont think the Jaguars will do the same they did last year and trade all there picks.

                                So this brings it down to the Bears at #18. How do u feel if the Rams dropped all the way down to #18 with a similar trade like last years Baltimore-Jacksonville trade.

                                Jacksonville Jags got:

                                Raven's 1-round pick (NO. 8)

                                Ravens Got:

                                Jaguar's 1-round pick No. 26
                                Jaguars's 3-round picks (2) No. 71, No. 89
                                Jaguars 4-round pick No. 125
