  • Bralidore's MOCK DRAFT: The Rough Draft

    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 ones.

    I like it, especially the first two. But only on the assumption that we've somehow acquired a QB of the future some other way. Otherwise, the Rams have no one.

      Based on Senior Bowl Results your first 3 are probably in the right place with Weatherspoon the best SB linebacker and could sneak into the bottom of the 1st round. Of your later picks Graham at TE and Blount at RB probably too low (Graham being talked at around 3, and Blount could even move up to 2 but probably 3 or 4th round based on Senior Bowl practice). Selvie has very mixed views by the scouts so could be there in 4 or could be gone by 2.

        Yes, ive based this mock draft off the assumption we're either waiting another year for a QB, or picking up one in FA. I don't want nor do i advise the Rams to pick a Quarterback in the first round if they can't trade down and pick up more picks, so this draft is assuming they go ahead and forgo selecting one and make do with either what they have (shudders*) or picks up one.

          First 2 picks are defense? And McCluster is an enormous health risk only being, what... 165lbs? I'm not arguing he's not a good player. I just dnt want another Trung Canidate.

          I dnt think you improve our offense very much with this draft. Although Alexander would be worth a 4th or 5th rnd pick, he has health issues too!

            Darren Sproles, the guy in the nfl that McCluster resembles most in the nfl, is only 185lbs. I am sure once he gets to the nfl and starts working with conditioning coaches, he can put on some weight. Not too worried about him.

            However I am curious as to why you selected McCluster AND Blount. Not sure if you want to kick McCluster outside and be a speed/situational receiver and have him return kicks. Or if you are trying to install a 3 back system like the one they have with the giants.

              Absolutely love this mock. If the chips fell this way, this guy would be on cloud 9. Nice work. Add a QB in FA and this would be perfect.

                  Reports out of the senior bowl is that he's looking very good.. good hands and route running. But I think if we're going to spend a 3rd or 4th round pick on a WR it's got to be a big redzone target. Roberts is only listed at 5-9.

                    the rams are drafting a QB with their first pick...whereever that may be....theyre not gunna complelty open the flood gates of money for SUH ...theyre d-line if healthy has promise....and is serviceable could easily b fixed up in free agency...look at who was injured in the DT spots....makes no sense to waste so much the end this is gunna end up the same way it did for aaron curry....he was "AMAZING" but shouldnt be takin so high since he was an OLB.....

                      I don't like taking an outside linebacker and a runningback in the first three rounds. If Selvie is that good, he probably won't be available in the fourth. If we're not going to address the quarterback position and we're not going to take a defensive end until round 4, I'd hope that we at least did something about the offensive line. I feel like this is kind of like treating acne on a cancer patient.

                        Are you kidding? McCluster is only 5-8. To add another 30-40 lbs is a huge undertaking! It'd be unnatural for him to weigh over 180.

                        I hate to judge before people have a chance to play, but taking a player who is 5-8 and 165 lbs is just too far out of the question. Many LB's will be 80-90 lbs heavier and be just as fast. All it takes is one hit from a Ray Lewis type and McCluster's career is over.

                        (BTW Trung Canidate was 5-11 and 205 lbs. Compared to McCluster, he's a bulldozer.)

                          Blount? Never. No need to target another guy who cant maintain self control when they just jettisoned one this year. If another back is needed late...look no further than RB Pat Paschall of NDSU. Solid citizen with serious skills. Better than Lamar Gordon and did it against better college opponents. This kid can carry the mail. His stock is rising after impressing scouts at the East West Shrine Game. called him "the top small school player there".

                            Suh is good

                            You already know my opinion on Weatherspoon so i leave that for the other thread

                            Do you think that Billy D will take a 5-8 under 170 pound back when his foundation for building this team is "getting bigger more physical" remember that last year when he took the job. However That Jimmy Graham is a good player and i think he would be value if we got him here in the 3rd.

                            Selvie maybe. I mean his senior season was awful. 3.5 sacks and 9.5 tckls for loss NOT GOOD!

                            At this point in the off-season Alexander is a great pick. But when april comes around i think you will see his name in the 2nd or 3rd round. He is 6-5 215 pounds. Expect a Ramses Bardan type thing. But Alexander has more elite level experience.

                            Black will fall but not sure that far

                            Blount is not a 4 pillar player

                            Again i see what you wrote "outside chance" of happening. But be a bit realistic. Some of those player's stock will rise from the Combine due to there athleticism. This is more a fantasy draft.

                                Nick's FINAL Seven-Round Rams Mock Draft
                                by Nick
                                Seven-Round Rams Mock Draft

                                ROUND ONE
                                Brodrick Bunkley, DT, Florida State
                                6'2" - 306 lbs - Senior

                                Word is defensive coordinator Jim Haslett and the Rams coaching staff loves this guy - so much so that both Haslett and head coach Scott Linehan were personally present for Florida State's pro day. Bunkley is a quick yet powerful defensive lineman who has no problem disrupting the backfield, and with the loss of both Ryan Pickett and Damione Lewis, the Rams certainly need an influx of talent at tackle.

                                ROUND TWO
                                Joe Klopfenstein, TE, Colorado
                                6'5" - 255 lbs - Senior

                                The Rams have virtually nothing but camp bodies behind starter Brandon Manumaleuna, and many Rams fans feel even he isn't adequate enough to start for this top offense. That makes upgrading at tight end a top priority, and in the second round, I feel Joe Klopfenstein is the best option for the Rams - he's tall, fast, has good hands, and is a fundamental blocker.

                                ROUND THREE
                                Chris Chester, OL, Oklahoma
                                6'3" - 303 lbs - Senior

                                In my latest three round mock, I have Chester available at the Rams' pick in the third round. If he's there, the Rams would be hard pressed to pass him up. Chester doesn't have a large body of work at Oklahoma on the offensive line, but shows the kind of athletic potential to be a great interior lineman with his quickness and versatility.

                                ROUND FOUR
                                Will Blackmon, CB, Boston College
                                6'0" - 198 lbs - Senior

                                Blackmon is an intriguing early second day prospect who needs a good amount of work to improve as a defensive back, but should contribute immediately in the return game. His experience as a receiver means he'll have great hands for the interception, and he could be a special player once he learns the nuances of the position.

                                ROUND FIVE
                                Spencer Havner, LB, UCLA
                                6'3" - 242 lbs - Senior

                                Havner has been one of my favorite mid round linebacker picks, and I've projected him as high as the third round before. But further investigation reveals a wide range of grades as to where Havner could go. If he's available in the fifth round, the Rams should run to the podium and take this underrated strong side prospect.

                                ROUND SIX
                                Frostee Rucker, DE, USC
                                6'3" - 261 lbs - Senior

                                You're not going to find a better pass rushing talent in the sixth round, in my opinion. Rucker comes from a program that has faced a lot of top competition, and while he isn't dominant, he's solid in numerous facets of the game - rushing the passer, stopping the run, and even dropping into coverage.

                                ROUND SEVEN
                                Freddie Roach, LB, Alabama
                                6'1" - 258 lbs - Senior

                                Believe it or not, Roach was a potential Day One selection at middle linebacker earlier in the season, but he's...

                                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.

                                Well, this is it. Two more days before the draft. We've all been waiting anxiously for the day to come, and now it's in touching distance. Whoever is picked, I will support fully, and hope they turn out well.

                                I'm going to keep the mock short for time concerns.

                                Trade: Alex Barron to Buffalo in return for their 4th round pick.

                                Round 2: Damian Williams (WR)

                                -Great work ethic

                                Round 3: Austen Lane (DE)

                                -Good work ethic

                                -Is ferocious

                                -Great pass rusher

                                -Dominates with quickness and strength and long wingspan

                                Round 4: Jimmy Graham (TE)

                                -Big target for Bradford

                                -Athletic and fast

                                -Amazing upside

                                Round 4: Kyle Calloway (OT)

                                -Blue collar tackle

                                -Great technician

                                -Sound pass protector and run blocker

                                -Good footwork and wingspan

                                Round 5: Donovan Warren (CB/S)

                                -Day 3 Steal

                                -Previously ranked as first-second round pick

                                -Stock dropped because of 40 time

                                -Very physical corner, will help in run support

                                -Great upside

                                -Physical corner

                                -Will help in run support

                                -Can be an elite press corner

                                -Good intelligence

                                -Has the ability to jam bigger WRs

                                Round 6: Brandon Sharpe (DE/LB)

                                -Very versatile pass rush specialist

                                -Works on slower OTs with his quickness and agility

                                -Can give Spags the option to create different schemes and blitz packages

                                Round 7: Greg Middleton (DE)

                                -IMO, this is a steal

                                -2 years ago, was considered a future elite player due to his 16 sacks as a sophomore

                                -Was a phenom, before deteriorating

                                -Production dropped for the past two years

                                -Has premier strength

                                -Has a wide range of pass rush moves

                                Round 7: Michael Greco (S)

                                -Great upside

                                -Will provide good depth and good special teams contributor

                                Round 7: O'Brien Schofield (DE/LB)

                                -Huge intensity player

                                -Great steal for us, was a former 2nd-3rd round prospect before injury at Senior Bowl

                                -Is a sack machine, much like Brandon...

                                RAMarkable's Final Rams Mock 2.0
                                by RAMarkable
                                Before getting started I'd like to post the Rams Mock 1.0 I did before the Combine.

                                1.) Aldon Smith DE Missouri

                                2.) Mason Foster OLB Washington

                                3.) DeMarco Murray RB Oklahoma

                                4.) Jalil Brown CB Colorado

                                5.) Jeremy Kerney WR TCU

                                With less than one week to go my latest mock has some revisions and changes compared to the first one. So here we go....

                                Round 1 Cory Liuget Dt Illinois
                                In my first mock I had Aldon Smith in this spot, and I would still take him here; but, alas, I'm not confident that he will be available when we pick as I've heard that Houston, Minnesota and Detroit are all very interested in him. If Smith is gone then Liuget is the pick.

                                Round 2 Mason Foster OLB Washington It's been kinda fun watching Foster move up the draft rankings during this draft process. From a middle 3rd rounder all the way up to the Rams at #46 he's been slowly rising with each passing week. I think this kid is going to start right after the ink dries on his contract. BTW this factored into my thinking as I believe the Rams are looking for the same kind of immediate starter like they got with their last two 2nd rounders-James Laurinitis and Roger Saffold. Foster fills a huge need and he starts now!

                                Round 3 DeMarco Murray RB Oklahoma Personally I would strongly consider a safety at this spot, but, IMO, there is no way that Billy goes all defense with his first 3 picks. So I had to look for an offensive player that can contribute quickly and eventually push for a larger role in the future. Murray's only downside is his history of injuries, but I still think he'll be a better pro than Daniel Thomas, Shane Vereen or Jordan Todman.

                                Round 4 Jalil Brown CB Colorado or Greg Romeus DE Pitt If the Rams are somehow fortunate enough to land Aldon Smith then Jalil Brown is the pick in the 4th round. BTW the Rams have drafted a cornerback in each of the last 5 drafts and here the trend continues. However, if we end up with Liuget then I think the Rams take Greg Romeus here in the fourth round.

                                Yeah, I know that his senior year was ruined by a back injury that eventually required surgery; but I believe that this is a risk the Rams will be willing to take at this point in the draft. Remember that Romeus was considered to be at least a top 40 pick after his junior year so this pick has value written all over it. Besides, Steven Jackson came back rather nicely after his back surgery so the Rams may feel like rolling the dice with Romeus. At this point in the draft the reward certainly outweighs the risk.

                                Round 5 Kevin Williams OG Nebraska Back to the offensive side of the ball for Billy and the boys. Here is a guy that can sit for awhile and learn his trade and hopefully sooner rather...

                                SOSA's MOCK DRAFT v1.0!!!!
                                by sosa39rams

                                Cliff Ryan- Developed very well and will be a key to rams run stop D.
                                Leonard Little- Great mentor, and nice to have around as back up(unless to much money demanded).
                                O.J Atogwe- Total ballhawk and anchors our secondary (MUST GET!)
                                Craig Dahl- Showed alot of great LOS playing, good reliable back up and stops the run well.
                                Gary Gibson- Showed great flashes; before injury

                                Free Agency:

                                Ray Edwards(Vikings): Great DE and would be a key pick up. Would help alot with pass rush and good run stop.
                                Jerious Norwood(Falcons): Great compliment and change of pace for Steven.
                                Tony Scheffler(Broncos): Very good recieving and blocking tight end. Good redzone threat.


                                Round 1: Ndamukong Suh DE: Should be no hesitation, great run stopper and amazing pass rusher. Will compliment the entire Defense.

                                Round 2: Sean Weatherspoon OLB: Very intelligent and quick linebacker. Would be immediate starter and would fit well into our scheme.

                                Round 3: Tony Pike or Dan LeFevour (who ever is available) QB: Both very similar in play. Good release, great accuracy and arm strength and can use their legs to make plays.

                                Round 4: Sam Young OT: Great footwork and considered a steal this late.

                                Round 5: Depth at WR
                                Round 6: Depth at DE
                                Round 7: Depth at CB

                                What do you guys think?
