  • The Most NFL Ready WR Likely to Slip to the 2nd Round

    Dez Bryant seems to be solidified as the front runner for the WR class, he is sure to go in the 1st round. Now the Rams have a good chance of pickin' up a legit talent in the 2nd round. In my opinion the rest of the WR's look pretty interchangable to me. Who would you guys say is the best WR who could slip into the 2nd round?

    To me, it comes down to Damian Williams and Brandon LaFell.

    IMO, Tate is now a sure 1st round pick due to his combine performance, and Williams may have dropped due to his 4.53 40 time.


    If I was a GM, I would go with Williams. LaFell is very good in his own right, but Williams 1) is a better WR IMO and 2) fits better in our scheme.

      I'm cemented with Demaryius Thomas. OK, he'll never was projected as a first rounder, but he's my choice if we draft WR in second round (if we don't, it's Weatherspoon). I don't buy that he is a product of play acrions or single coverages. He's a palyer (and I am Ramone).

          D. Thomas is the ideal pick for us if we grab another young WR. He's a big target and has a lot of potential compared to some of our smaller WR's.

            I don't think that many teams have drafted a WR in the first around in a few years. (other than Detroit)

            I think D. Bryant, A. Benn & G. Tate will go in the first round.

            The next best WR's are B. LaFell & D. Williams.

            D. Williams is more NFL ready, a better route runner than Lafell.

            I would rather the Rams draft other positions than a WR in the 2nd round. OT, QB, DE, DT, Depending what they draft in round 1.
            Geno Atkins DT
            Alex Carrington DE
            T. Washington OT or J. Veldeer OT
            QB D. Lefevour

              I don't know what the Rams are looking for in a WR. Do we want another Avery "stretch the field guy" or do we want just a big tall guy to run across the middle? Hoping you guys had some answers to back up your opinions.

                If we got a receiver in an early round this year, I think we need to get a polished guy that can come in and contribute right away. On the other hand I understand that a big guy like Thomas is something we could use as well. I personally would either grab damian in the second (depending on who's there) or wait until the third round to try and find a few gems.

                  After that combine I think Tate has moved himself into the first round.

                  Thomas is probably the most physically gifted of all those wide receivers, but not being able to work out because of the injury will hurt him. And coming from a system like Georgia Tech you have to wonder how well he will run routes in the NFL. He's going to take time to develop. The kid is an athletic freak but there are some red flags surrounding him.

                  Williams is probably the best fit for this offense. Provides good YAC, an excellent route runner, and he played in a pro style offense at USC. Coming to a precision system like ours, he would be the perfect fit and would allow the Rams to slide Avery inside to be used as more of a slot receiver where I think he would be more effective.

                    If you watched the combine you would see Arrelious Benn clearly put himself into the top 5


                    1. Bryant

                    2. G Tate

                    3. Benn

                    4. M.Williams

                    5. D. Alexander

                      -Ya but Benn's performance in college leaves something to be desired. I dont think he has proven himself worthy to go in the 1st or early 2nd.

                      -Demaryius Thomas broke a bone in his foot while training for the combine. I think it's safe to say we won't take an injured player first pick of the 2nd round. We already got enough injured WR's.

                      -Golden Tate had an expolsive college career and an outstanding combine, he won't fall out of the 1st round.

                      -So this leaves us between Lafell, Williams, and Gilyard.

                        I think Benn did just fine in college with quarterbacks that really couldn't throw and a cast of bad players.

                        Benn will 100% go before D. Williams and 80% sure ahead of LaFell.

                          Although I hate the Illini with a passion, Arrelious Benn reminds me of Percy Harvin. A blue-chip prospect who battled injuries and too-high expectations, but still someone with amazing athletic ability. Also a playmaker who could contribute in our system right away. BUT drafting WRs is such a crapshoot, so I guess we will just have to wait and see...

                            I'd take Thomas. Injured foot isn't that big of a deal. The people he was training with in Arizona say that the guy has a work ethic like no-other and that he was running solid routes. Looks to be an Anquan Boldin in the making.

                              Oh that's saying a whole lot.

                                by GoRams1
                                First of all, I'm all for Justin Blackmon if we take him in the 1st Round (I'm an OK State Homer).
                                But I cant see Spags going WR in round 1. I say we take this guy... Von Miller.

                                WR in 2 of first 4 rounds
                                by ramhard
                                I know some might howl with the needs, but I argue that the Rams need to draft WR in the 1st and in one of their next 3 picks (or sign an all-star caliber WR like Vincent Jackson). The Rams need TWO top WR's to make the passing game click - not one. Danny A is a good slot, DX can't be counted on due to injury, Clayton is a great 2nd or 3rd receiver but older coming back from injury, not a fan of Avery, Gibson, or Robinson. With such a promising QB you shouldn't just have a solid WR core, you need a great WR bunch plus a good receiving TE (Mike H maybe or Fendi O maybe).

                                by chiguy
                                This seems to be a deep draft in some positions that are important to the Rams (e.g., offensive line). I keep think that this is a good year to get more picks in the second round and maybe the third as well.

                                1. Agree or disagree?
                                2. Who are the interesting 2-3rd players would you want to see drafted?
                                3. What can the Rams to get more picks in these round? What are they worth?

                                Just interested in what people are thinking here...

                                Why wouldn't the Rams select a WR in the 1st round?
                                by Beastified
                                The popular mock draft right now for the Rams typically includes either Chance Warmack or Jonathan Cooper. Most of us here know that Jeff Fisher never spent a 1st round pick on an OL in his long career with Tennesee. That can't just be a coincidence.

                                There was an interview with Gregg Rosenthal and Les Snead during the combine about a week back, and Rosenthal asked Snead something about getting weapons on offense. Snead hinted that it was a top priority, but he didn't want to say it was going to be a wide receiver, so he said "weapons come in all shapes and sizes".

                                I'm willing to gaurantee we are going to see one of the following WR's in blue and gold next season, and I put them in order of likeliness they go to the Rams:



                                1. DeAndre Hopkins
                                2. Keenan Allen
                                3. Tavon Austin
                                4. Cordarelle Patterson
                                5. Da'Rick Rogers


                                Yes, I think the Rams will draft Hopkins with one of their first round picks. He didn't blow up the combine or anything in the statistical drills, but he nailed it on the catching drills. I watched him and he looked more fluid than any of the other receivers there. He doesn't have elite speed, but he is the most sure-handed WR in this draft.



                                I think Bradford would really like this guy, because he fits the mold of a Sam Bradford type of receiver. None of Bradford's favorite targets have ever had great speed or such, but they have had reliable hands (Amendola). Besides, the Rams already have a burner in Chris Givens, they got their tall guy in Brian Quick, and they got their redzone guy in Austin Pettis. Where is the reliable guy at? The Rams don't have a reliable #1 receiver (that we know of yet).

                                My point here is to start mocking WR's to the Rams in the 1st round. There is no way, with only THREE receivers on contract, that the Rams come out of the 1st round without a playmaker....
