  • New Rams mock v3.0

    Newest Rams mock from your community friend!

    Resigned players, Free Agency, Trade, and Draft Round 1-3.

    RESIGN
    - DT Clifton Ryan:
    The dude is starting to become a very good player, for those who watch all the games, you know exactly what I'm talking about. The last 3 weeks he's really clicked. He's in the backfield making plays, and he's plugging up gaps and getting penetration on running plays. He's even showed a few times the ability to rush the passer, with another solid Defensive Lineman, his skills would be nationally known. He's still young and hasn't entered his prime, he's just beginning to touch is potential. He's a cornerstone to our future.


    - S Craig Dahl:
    Craig has been very good for us since joining the Rams. He's arguably been our best performer at safety. Last week really showed us what he can do when early in the game against the Colts, Dahl blew up a toss play in the backfield for a loss of yards, making a great open field tackle. He hasn't been a liability in coverage either, he's not going to be expensive which is a big positive.

    - LB Larry Grant
    He's been solid, he's young and has been decent for us, he'll come cheap and could potentially start at SLB for us.

    - T Alex Barron
    As badly as some of us want him to leave, he hasn't been bad this year, and he hasn't been great. He's not going to demand a lot of money and can provide good depth and potential starting ability again next year. He needs a strong finish to get a decent contract. He's young as well.


    FREE AGENCY
    RB Jerious Norwood

    - Norwood would provide an excellent change of pace back for Steven Jackson. Norwood has elite speed and can take it to the house at anytime. He's a poor mans Chris Johnson. He'll also be able to take some pressure of Steven.

    TE Tony Scheffler

    - The Rams are in dire need of a new Tight End, it's no secret. Fells has showed flashes but isn't consistent enough, he's a solid #2. Scheffler, is a very good pass catching Tight End and will block. He's not in the plans in Denver and will most likely walk. He'll bring an excellent ability to catch passes here.

    LB Derrick Johnson

    - Johnson will bring instant credibility to St. Louis. He's a fine OLB in a 4-3 defense, he struggled with transition last season in Kansas City. He's a playmaker and would excel in Spagnuolo's scheme and also doesn't fit into plans with the new coaching staff over at Kansas City.

    DE Mark Anderson

    - Solid player who could come in and compete for a DE spot opposite of Chris Long. At worst he'd provide solid depth.

    ** TRADE **
    The Rams trade a 5th round and 6th round pick for QB Michael Vick.

    - Love him or hate him, he'd be a difference maker. He may not have a high completion percentage but he gets the job done. He'd consistently put the defense on there heels and provide a whole new look to our team. He's a straight playmaker, and has a very good deep ball. He'd be great and a perfect fit for our team.

    DRAFT
    ** TRADE: The Rams trade the 1st overall pick to Tampa Bay for there 1st pick, 2nd round and 3rd round.

    With the 3rd pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams select Eric Berry, Safety, Tennessee

    - Eric Berry is a complete difference maker, he's an absolute playmaker. Something the Rams need, unlike Atogwe, Berry is going to come up and hit you in the mouth at the line of scrimmage, or down the field. He set the SEC and Tennessee record for interception return yards. He's not afraid to give a hit or stack the LoS.

    With the 33rd pick in the 2009 NFL draft, the St. Louis Rams select Brian Price, Defensive Tackle, UCLA

    - Brian Price was a beast at UCLA, showing good quickness and great power. He's got the ability to stack up and handle two OL at one time, and the ability to push through, or use his hands and body to swim around the OL to get to the QB. He finished 2009 with 7 sacks. He's got very good athleticism and can chase down the RB or QB from behind.

    With the 35th pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams select Amari Spievy, Cornerback, Iowa

    - Yes, St. Louis selects another Iowa CB. Spievey comes from a physical Iowa defense. He's got very good ability to come up and stop the run, and also excellent speed to stay with a lot of WR. He's larger at roughly 6'0" - 6'1" and 205lbs. Great at jamming the WR and looking for the ball. Very good athleticism and also a hard hitter.

    With the 1st pick in the 3rd round, the St. Louis Rams select Jeffrey Fitzgerald, Defensive End, Kansas State

    - Athletic player who also has the power to get through you. Finished the year with 7 sacks. A nice motor and nice technique.

    With the 1st pick in the 4th round, the St. Louis Rams select Cameron Sheffield, Outside Linebacker, Troy

    Re: New Rams mock v3.0

    im not a fan of keeping Barron
    im not a fan of trading two draft picks for Vick
    i dont think the trade with Tampa would happen
    I really dont like the way the draft turns out. All defensive players, no QB of the future?
    If the Rams trade down to 3 its so that they can pick up extra draft picks and their QB of the future

      Re: New Rams mock v3.0

      ok..here`s my view

      Free Agency? good..id be happy with those picks

      Resign? Ryan? Absolutely!
      Dahl? Yes please.
      Larry Grant? cheap depth im fine with.
      Barron? enough is enough..we need a RT, he`s proved he is better at LT than RT but he is too lazy and takes plays and games off to keep as the LT...i dont think he`ll be as cheap as some may think..as someone will look at his physical tools and think that they can do a better job than the Rams have in coaching him up.

      Trade? No thanks

      Draft? good prospects but id rather take Suh than trade down and get who you have us taking with those picks ...id be ok with us trading down..just not with who you have us selecting there..who again,are good prospects..just not entirely what the doctor ordered..e.g Berry may be the second best prospect coming out this year..but we have bigger holes if Atogwe stays or he doesn`t.

      your off-season would possibly turn our D into a top 12 D..but id stay with the pattern you started out with in F.A. improve all sides of the team.

        Re: New Rams mock v3.0

        Not a fan of this

        Just stop we are NOT signing Alex Barron we spent a 2nd pick on Jason Smith now let him play his position Barron had his chance at LT and did not live up to potential.

        I dont think we should spend money on Johnson and Anderson. One is good.

        I like Mike Vick but i would not give up a 5th for him. Probably 6th. But i think the only way we get him is though free agency with the eagles releasing him. But no way we do that trade.

        The Bucs are also rebuilding so why would they give up that many early picks for 1 player. Also even if that trade would happen why would be spend it on Berry? Yea he is an improvement over OJ but he is not huge improvement over OJ that we spend a top 3 pick. We can franchise OJ again.

        spivey will only be drafted that early if he runs a 4.4 or better in the 40. I think he will be a safety at the next level he just does not have the speed to keep up with a Desean Jackson type.

          Barron doesn't have to play LT, he can play RT.

          So let's just create another hole on this team letting him go when he'll be cheap * rolls eyes *.

            16, I like it but I still feel like we should at the least draft a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round. Perhaps a little too much defense. I'm not really sold on the OL, drafting a few more would help tremendously.
            Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

              Well, that basically seems to be what you did by letting Atogwe walk and creating a hole at safety. Not sure why it's necessary to roll your eyes at people who want to see you do at one position what you did at another with a better player.

              Anyways, you had me in free agency until you got to Vick, but I'm not going to bother rehashing that here. As others have said, I don't like keeping Barron. Whether he's cheap or not, he's shown he can't play anything resembling consistent football and can't cut down on the stupid penalties. Though it would create another hole, replacing him would be a positive move for the Rams.

              As for the draft, you went all defense? Interesting. I'd much rather see the Rams retain Atogwe and then use their newly acquired 3rd overall pick on a quarterback of the future which, unless I've overlooked him, is missing from your mock. Price in the second round would be great value, but you kind of lost me again with the two picks after that. I suspect there will be better cornerbacks on the board than Amari Spievey at the top of the second, and using two of their first three picks on help in the secondary isn't incredibly appealing. Jeffrey Fitzgerald, IMO, isn't great value at the top of the third. As for Sheffield, how do you envision him doing as an outside linebacker in a 4-3 scheme at the next level? Based on his pass rushing experience in college, I can't help but wonder if the better fit would be in a 3-4.

              In short, I appreciate the effort but I'm not head over heels with this one.

                Re: New Rams mock v3.0

                Why I do not like this mock very much:

                1) Eric Berry? Why? Why not just keep Atogwe and use this pick for something more useful?

                2) All defense? Do you not realize that our defense is much better than our offense, and that our offense is the unit that needs more rebuilding?

                3) I believe you forgot another 3rd round pick we got from Tampa in this mock.

                4) 5 draft picks in the first 3 rounds, and no offensive playmakers...

                5) WHY do we resign Barron? People either do not watch the games, or are related to him or something and are biased.

                Alex Barron is not a good tackle. I frankly do not care if he comes cheap. At this point I would only be satisfied if he's playing back-up.

                He plays without fire, no eagerness,he gets burned consistently by speed rushers, that's why he got many holding calls and more were not called. He was MEDIOCRE at left tackle, his original position. He played even worse at RT. Now, we ask him to move BACK to RT? That's just creating another hole.

                6) We pick up DE Mark Anderson in FA and then we get Fitzgerald in the draft?

                7) So, we re-sign Larry Grant, sign Derrick Johnson, AND draft Cameron Shefield?


                Defense may win championships, but without an offense capable of scoring even decently, I don't care if we have an all star defense. We're not going to go anywhere.

                  Re: New Rams mock v3.0

                  I have to join the crowd here and point out for emphasis, that there is absolutely no way the Bucs would give up their 2nd and 3rd round picks for the right to draft Suh, especially when they could draft McCoy or Berry with their pick.

                    This isn't a very impressing mock draft. I completely disagree on taking Vick, *STAY AWAY*. He is a waste of a player. And for your draft, why take berry? OJ first off is better than Berry ever will be and that's a waste of a pick when we have more important things to spend it on. Overall, this mock was a huge disapointment, sorry!

                      Re: New Rams mock v3.0

                      Draft Dan Lefevour in the 3rd round is better idea than vick and trading a pick with tampa bay or detroit we should be looking at at least a 1st and 2 2nd round picks and maybe more in the year after. But what people forget there are teams with a couple of round 1 picks which would be a best option for a trade i think. If sam bradford falls in the first and we can trade up from 2nd round to get him, or if we can trade down from 1 and pick sam bradford or clausen and the bpa would be another option id rather.

                        As I said, this is something new, and it's not close to my final. I just wanted to try out another scenario, and I myself wasn't thrilled about it, but tried it. I'll have a few more upcoming.

                          I'm fine with going defense the top 3 rounds. I'd even be fine if we trade the top pick with the Bucs, but I'm hoping Devaney rakes them over the coals and has them cough up both of their seconds.

                            16:

                            Some guys you may want to snag some film on as a potential late round "value":

                            Dan LeFevour out of Central Michigan
                            Riley Skinner out of Wake Forest

                            I think either would be a great addition to this draft class and either would be available later on.

                              Rebuilding a dynasty: The Prez's Mock
                              by Warner4prez
                              Key Resignings: I'm not sure the number of guys that will be eligible for FA but to reiterate what most everyone else has said, I'll give you some of the key returners.
                              1.) OJ Atogwe: Gotta have playmakers in the D-backfield and he's our number 1 guy back there. Almost regardless of the price, pay the man.

                              2.) Cliff Ryan: A rising star as far as DT are concerned and a player that will be a cornerstone in our return to building the fearsome foursome.

                              3.) Gary Gibson: Showed promise as a rotational player in the absence of Adam Carriker early in the season should be cheap to keep and depth on the D-line is a key to Spagnulo's approach.

                              4.) Craig Dahl: Played well enough to keep a back up job while James Butler was injured, makes a solid special teamer and did well as a situational blitzer.

                              5.) Mark Setterstrom: O-line will likely be an emphasis in FA and pre-season so keeping Setterstrom makes sense as he can start and perform at an NFL level already.

                              (I'm sure there are more that we'll keep, these are just the key mentionables)

                              Free Agency: The uncapped year could be a detriment to acquiring young FA's this team will need, but these are a few players that I'm hopefull the Rams will pull in.

                              Chris Gocong (OLB): The Rams will be on the prowl for a legitimate playmaker to help shore up long runs. Gocong comes from that Philly D that already shares the genes as Spagnulos' system, and is a pretty solid pass covering LB as well.

                              Aaron Kampman (DE/OLB): Had a rough season that ended in injury after the Pack switched to their 3-4 format, but could be on the way out. Packers have plenty of LB depth already with Chillar, Matthews, Hawk et. all.

                              Jerious Norwood (HB): Speedster to come in and spell our prized back SJ39. Hope to see him make it over because I'm sure the Rams would rather spend picks elsewhere.

                              Tony Scheffler (TE): McDaniels is casting off as many of his malcontents as he can, so hopefully the asking price won't be too steep to grab up a solid pass catching (not dropping) TE.

                              The Draft: Much has already been made about this years draft and it's only January. Plenty will happen in the coming weeks and months, but this is just an initial look at what could shake down.

                              Pick 1 (3rd): With the 3rd overall pick The Rams select QB Jimmy Clausen Notre Dame. I truly believe that Suh will be a great player, but I also believe that The Bucs will give almost anything to get to him, including both of their 2nd round picks. With 5 picks in the top 3 rounds, we could fast track some rebuilding and still make a few solid moves.

                              Pick 2 (33rd): Sean Weatherspoon OLB Missouri. The Rams steal a great player at the top of the 2nd from their hometown school and a guy who will start straight away. With a possible LB corps of J-Lau and Gocong, we've got a fierce gang.

                              Pick 3 (35th):
                              ...

                              by RamsFan16
                              I figured it's midseason, making it the right time for a midseason mock, right? Let's begin!

                              ------------

                              Resign
                              - DT Clifton Ryan:
                              The dude is starting to become a very good player, for those who watch all the games, you know exactly what I'm talking about. The last 3 weeks he's really clicked. He's in the backfield making plays, and he's plugging up gaps and getting penetration on running plays. He's even showed a few times the ability to rush the passer, with another solid Defensive Lineman, his skills would be nationally known. He's still young and hasn't entered his prime, he's just beginning to touch is potential. He's a cornerstone to our future.

                              - CB Jonathan Wade:
                              He's a solid Nickelback for us, he's been doing solid this season, nothing spectacular but he's got the size and speed to hang with the faster slot receivers. He again hasn't hit his potential yet and is entering his prime, which should set up for a nice turue with us.

                              - S Craig Dahl:
                              Craig has been very good for us since joining the Rams. He's arguably been our best performer at safety. Last week really showed us what he can do when early in the game against the Colts, Dahl blew up a toss play in the backfield for a loss of yards, making a great open field tackle. He hasn't been a liability in coverage either, he's not going to be expensive which is a big positive.

                              - LB Larry Grant
                              He's been solid, he's young and has been decent for us, he'll come cheap and could potentially start at SLB for us.

                              - T Alex Barron
                              As badly as some of us want him to leave, he hasn't been bad this year, and he hasn't been great. He's not going to demand a lot of money and can provide good depth and potential starting ability again next year. He needs a strong finish to get a decent contract. He's young as well.

                              - Richie Incognito
                              He's a decent player, and knows the system. He's showed flashes of Pro Bowl talent but has been inconsistent. He's young and could provide starter/depth ability.

                              A hard decision, but let OJ Atogwe test the market, he's been a turnover machine the past 2 seasons, but this season he isn't getting them. When he gets turnovers he's good, but when he doesn't, he's bad. He continues to be out of position, take poor angles and miss a lot of tackles while trying to punch the ball out. Someone will probably overpay for him, and I don't want it to be us. He's going to be 30 next year as well.

                              Cut:
                              RB Kenneth Darby
                              TE Randy McMichael
                              OG Jacob Bell
                              WR Tim Carter
                              WR Ruvell Martin
                              S David Roach


                              Free Agency
                              DE Aaron Kampman
                              - Most likely wont' be resigning in Green Bay, he's a very good DE in the 4-3 scheme. He can provide some nice help in the Pass Rushing game for us, he's currently in the 3-4 scheme which is not him. A move back...

                              Giants

                              - He's a steady tackler, not much of a pass rusher, but he's consistent all around otherwise. On top of things, he's got a good work ethic, and is familiar with a Spagnulo run defense. At 26, he's still got some upside yet.

                              - Leigh Bodden
                              CB
                              Patriots

                              - Bodden was New England's best DB in 2009, picking off 5 passes, while racking up 55 tackles and more importantly helping New England improve their pass defense, and was crucial in helping the Pats cut their allowed passing touchdown numbers.

                              - Charlie Whitehurst
                              QB
                              Chargers

                              Has a good arm with accuracy, good size for the position and has spent his first three seasons in the NFL learning behind one of the NFL's best young QB (Phillip Rivers) and a very good QB developer as Head Coach (Norv Turner).

                              Rivers has actually gone on record and said that Whitehurst is overdue for a starting QB opportunity, and stated when he gets the chance, some team will be glad they gave him that shot.

                              I view Whitehurst as a low risk, high reward pickup. He likely won't cost much, and if he develops, the Rams have their QB situation solved. If not, it was a low risk signing and they can focus their attentions to adding a QB in the first in next year's draft.

                              Re-sign

                              O.J. Atogwe
                              Alex Barron
                              Leonard Little

                              Lastly.. Bring back Bulger as a backup.

                              And.. The draft.

                              Round 1
                              - Ndamukong Suh
                              DT
                              Nebraska

                              Suh is just what the doctor ordered for this defense. I think they've already got some pieces in place for future success, Suh will be the addition that could make them that much stronger. Suh, Long and Laurinitis is a very solid core, and one that could be dangerous for years to come.

                              Traditionally, teams don't spend #1 overall picks, and the money associated with it on Defensive Tackles.. Then again, Suh isn't your traditional DT.

                              Round 2
                              - Brandon LaFell
                              WR
                              LSU

                              I think WR is the biggest weakness on the Rams offense. While I like Donnie Avery, they need more.

                              I think LaFell could quietly, when it's all said and done, become the best of this class. He has good route running skills and leaping ability; good size; good field vision and body control; has a competitive streak a mile long; is very productive and gets good YPC numbers because of his ability to break tackles and take hits. He's not going to ever win a foot race. He isn't slow by any means, but his timed sped won't ever wow you, however his other intangibles more than make up for the "lack of speed".

                              He reminds me a large amount of Dwayne Bowe (and not just because both went to LSU). Bowe has quietly had a very good start to his career...

                              All-Ram Mock Draft
                              by sosa39rams
                              Here she goes!

                              1.2 - Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn: He is an elite prospect. Robinson is dominant and if groomed properly can become one of the best players in the league. We should feel very confident with Fisher's and Bou's pedigrees.

                              1.13 - TRADE! We trade back from #13 here to Clevelands #26 and also receive a 2nd rounder (2014) and a 3rd rounder (2015).

                              1.26 - Ra'Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota: Hageman can be an absolute beast. He is downright dominant at times and others trails away. He needs to be more consistent. Fisher and Waufle love big DT's and Hageman can step right in and battle Langford for a starting spot.

                              2 - Kyle Fuller, CB, VATech: I feel like Fuller is garnering much more interest in NFL circles than the outside world. Fuller has great technique and has everything you want in a shutdown CB. He is going to be one hell of a steal.

                              2 - Kyle Van Noy, OLB, BYU: Van Noy is an excellent and very versatile player. He is good in all 3 aspects of the game: Run stop, coverage, and blitzing. He isn't amazing at anything but he offers a piece Williams can work with and completes the front 7.

                              3 - Terrence Brooks, FS, FSU: Brooks is one of my favourite players of this draft. He is a very rangy player at FS who has good speed and can cover TE's and HB's 1on1. He is an excellent coverage Safety. He has plenty experience as a single high FS.

                              4 - Trai Turner, OG, LSU: Another one of my favourite prospects Turner would be an excellent choice here. He is a guy you can plug and play from day 1. He's got some toughness. He has excellent movement ability and can get to the second level quickly.

                              5 - David Fales, QB, SJSU: Fales is an excellent developmental prospect. He can come in and sit behind Hill and Bradford for a year and get accustomed to the NFL. He has good accuracy and is a smart guy.

                              **- Trade! We package two seventh round picks and this 6th rounder for a late 5th to the Broncos.

                              5 - Josh Huff, WR, Oregon: Huff is an electric player. He isn't big but he has natural hands, great body control, and very deceptive speed. He could be a nice option here.

                              Rockin's Pre-Combine Mock Draft
                              by RockinRam
                              This is just a quickie mock, so I did not include a free agent section.


                              One major event: We trade our 1st round to Tampa Bay in return for their 1st, 2nd, and 4th round pick.



                              Round 1:
                              Sam Bradford [6'4, 225lbs.] Oklahoma (QB) *VIA Trade*

                              Analysis: Bradford has all the tools to succeed and dominate in the NFL, and he has tremendous potential. New regimes mean new quarterbacks. Bradford will be the new face of our franchise.




                              Round 2: Jermaine Gresham [6'6, 260lbs.] Oklahoma (TE)

                              Analysis: We finally get the big, endzone target we've desperately needed for quite some time. Has played with Bradford too, so there is already some timing between them.




                              Round 2: Brandon Ghee [6'0, 190lbs.] Wake Forest (CB) *VIA Trade*

                              Analysis: A very instinctive and physical corner. Has very good speed, and is a good athlete. Takes quick cuts, solid in both man and zone, and is a confident player.




                              Round 3:
                              A.J Edds [6'4, 245lbs.] Iowa (SLB)

                              Analysis: Blessed with great size. Is a pure strongside linebacker, and should complement Laurinaitis very well. Solid tackler and has improved his coverage vastly this season.





                              Round 4: Jared Veldheer [6'9, 325lbs.] Hillsdale (OT)

                              Analysis: His frame is similar to Johnathan Ogden, Jared Gaither, and Sebastian Vollmer. Very massive size, and should become our starter at RT.




                              Round 4:
                              Austen Lane [6'6, 267lbs.] Murray State (DE) *VIA Trade*

                              Analysis: Good athlete, very disruptive. A powerful tackler, and he is a pass-rushing machine. Needs to improve run stopping though.




                              Round 5: Rico McCoy [6'1, 220lbs.] Tennessee (WLB)

                              Analysis: A very rangy linebacker, and is very, very fast. Should complete our linebacker trio alongside Laurinaitis and Edds. Has the speed to cover sideline to sideline, but needs to add some bulk to his frame.




                              Round 5: Vince Oghobaase [6'6, 305lbs.] Duke (DT) *VIA Trade* (From Eagles)

                              Analysis: Should be a good addition to our DT rotation. Had a pretty good junior season last year, but missed several games due to injuries and has hurt his stats and stock. Has good agility, and smarts for the game.




                              Round 6: Andrew Quarless [6'5, 252lbs.] Penn State (TE)

                              Analysis: Could become our 2nd TE. Great athlete, and great pass catching TE. The reason why he is projected so low is because of a history of getting in trouble, but he has not been in trouble for a while. He's maybe cleaned up.


                              Round 7: Brandon Carter [6'7, 350lbs.] Texas Tech (OG)

                              Analysis: Scary guy. Great depth for the O-line, and could figure into the mix for the starting RG spot.
