  • Av's FINAL Rams 7 Round/First 33 Picks Mock Drafts

    Round 1: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma

    At this point, its hard to dispute that the first pick is Bradford's to lose. I've watched a lot of highlight films, and I like what I see. If the Rams feel the same when they look at his medical report and workouts, I think they will pull the trigger and take the player that they hope will start at QB for the next ten years.

    Round 2: Jahvid Best, RB, California

    I think the Rams and Best need each other. The Rams need a No. 2 back who can take the pressure off Steven Jackson, break big runs, and be groomed to be the No. 1 back in a few years when Jackson slows down. Best needs a team that won't make him carry the ball 25 times per game as a rookie. Its a match.

    Round 3: Alex Carrington, DE, Arkansas State

    Carrington is Spags' kind of DL. He can play DE in a base 4-3, and slide inside as a pass rusher as well. His stock went up at the Senior Bowl, where he was viewed as one of the best defenders on either squad. I think he's a good value at this spot.

    Round 4: Marshall Newhouse, OT, TCU

    Newhouse has good size (326 lbs.) and athleticism. He was a LT in college, but fits better as a RT in the pros. With Alex Barron's time running short with the Rams, Newhouse could be a future starter.

    Round 5: Perry Riley, OLB, LSU

    The Rams need to add some young LB talent. Riley has nice size and good speed. He could compete for the starting spot at WLB.

    Round 5: Marcus Easley, WR, Connecticut

    Big (6'3, 210) and fast (4.46). He had a breakout season at UConn last year. If he makes the team, though, he'll have to pick another jersey number.

    Round 6: Brandon Sharpe, OLB/DE, Texas Tech

    An under-the-radar selection, Sharpe is a pure pass rushing specialist. The Rams could use a guy like him.

    Round 7: Reed Williams, MLB, West Virginia

    Williams does not project as a starter, but he could be the Rams' version of a guy like Larry Izzo while backing up James Laurinaitis.

    Round 7: Jarvis Geathers, OLB/DE, UCF

    Another guy for special teams and the pass rush rotation.

    Round 7: Patrick Stoudamire, CB, Western Illinois

    Local kid can provide depth in the defensive backfield and on special teams. Good size (5'10, 205)/speed (4.45) combo.

    And...

    Here is my First Round (+1) Mock:

    1. St. Louis Rams: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
    2. Detroit Lions: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
    3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
    4. Washington Redskins: Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State
    5. Kansas City Chiefs: Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
    6. Seattle Seahawks: Brian Bulaga, OT, Iowa
    7. Cleveland Browns: Joe Haden, CB, Florida
    8. Oakland Raiders: Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
    9. Buffalo Bills: Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee
    10. Jacksonville Jaguars: Derrick Morgan, DE, Georgia Tech
    11. Denver Broncos: Rolando McClain, LB, Alabama
    12. Miami Dolphins: Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma State
    13. San Francisco Niners: Mike Iupati, OG, Idaho
    14. Seattle Seahawks: C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson
    15. New York Giants: Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State
    16. Tennessee Titans: Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Missouri
    17. San Francisco Niners: Jared Odrick, DE/DT, Penn State
    18. Pittsburgh Steelers: Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma
    19. Atlanta Falcons: Everson Griffen, DE, USC
    20. Houston Texans: Earl Thomas, S, Texas
    21. Cincinnati Bengals: Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma
    22. New England Patriots: Brandon Graham, OLB, Michigan
    23. Green Bay Packers: Anthony Davis, OT, Rutgers
    24. Philadelphia Eagles: Taylor Mays, S, USC
    25. Baltimore Ravens: Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas
    26. Arizona Cardinals: Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
    27. Dallas Cowboys: Vladimir Ducasse, OT, Massachusetts
    28. San Diego Chargers: Ryan Matthews, RB, Fresno State
    29. New York Jets: Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame
    30. Minnesota Vikings: Colt McCoy, QB, Texas
    31. Indianapolis Colts: Charles Brown, OT, Texas
    32. New Orleans Saints: Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida
    33. St. Louis Rams: Jahvid Best, RB, California

    Re: Av's 7 Round Rams Mock (Version 2.0)

    not bad....2 things .

    1. I would like to see a TE and/or CB in the mix.

    2. I would rather go DE round 2 -- RB round 3.

    Dont' you think the disparity btw round 2 and 3 rbs isn't as great as round 2 and 3 Dlinemane?

    **especially for a RB2 that may only get 5 touches a game if he isn't used on special teams.

      I think that after Spiller, Matthews and Best there is a pretty big dropoff at RB to the next group (Dwyer, Gerhart, Tate). Best may not get more than 5-10 carries as a rookie when Jackson's healthy, but if Jackson were to need a week off for a minor injury, Best could step in and keep the offense going.

      As far as DL goes, I think there's going to be a run in the first round that will leave few, if any, players worthy of consideration at pick #33.

        pretty good mock..the only real hole i see left if we made those picks would be TE..tho all the picks seem to be good prospects and the type we need..would be confident of us actually making the opposing QB`s rush their throws or get sacked with those fine pass rushing prospects added to an ever growing Long.

        does today`s re-signing of Hall make you want to change any of those pass rushing prospect picks for a pick at another position..maybe a TE or FS?

          If he were still there in Round 6, I might consider Clay Harbor of Missouri State.

          I get the need for a TE, but I just don't see using a high draft choice on one, unless the Rams really fall in love with Germaine Gresham and decide to take him in Round 2.

            This is pretty much exactly how I'd like to see our first four rounds play out in terms of addressing our biggest needs as of right now. I really like it.

            It's going to be largely impossible for us to fill all of our needs in one draft and I can understand why you left out a Tight End. If there are better options available to us in rounds 4 onward (I'm not going to dispute the first three rounds, I'd love to see all three selections materialize) then I can definitely see us passing on a TE altogether. I also see less of a need for a CB now that Dockery has been signed.

              i feel better about this TE class coming out i guess..tho i should add that i thought Klop was gonna be a beast for us,so my judgement of TE prospects coming out is a touch spotty to say the least...

              i have had a good run of predicting which QB`s will or wont make it in recent years tho..and for what that is worth ,i think Sam will be a good one.

                Avenger,

                Your comment on the Jahvid Best selection included the following, "Best needs a team that won't make him carry the ball 25 times per game as a rookie."

                1.) What do you mean by this statement?

                2.) Are you taking into consideration Best's history of concussions as a reason to limit his carries as a rookie?

                WHAT SAY YE?

                  i think AV is just remembering who else we have at RB...tho i dont think Best is an every down back just yet and that is what he means too.

                    Best is not what you would call a "big back" and he is coming off a year in which he missed some time due to injuries. I don't know that he (or most rookie RBs, for that matter) can come in and be a guy who carries the ball 20-25 times per game. If he were taken by a team without a No. 1 back, he might have to do that. On the Rams, he can be a role player (and an important one) for his first couple of years. As he gets a bit older and bulks up a little (as RBs tend to do), he could develop into an every down back.

                      3 things that make Jahvid Best a questionmark


                      1. Doesn't move laterally well.

                      2. Runs with straight up (high) style

                      3. Consistent durablity issues

                        Another plus with Best is that he has experience as a kick returner. Given his speed, he could be a valuable contributer in that role as well.

                        As I noted above, one of the reasons I have the Rams taking a RB in Round 2 is that I think there will be a run on DL in Round 1. I see 5 DTs (Suh, G.McCoy, Williams, Price, Odrick) and 4 DEs (Morgan, Pierre-Paul, Griffen, Dunlap) being selected in Round 1. If any of those guys (with the possible exception of Dunlap, who I see as a potential underachiever) were to fall to Round 2, I'd consider taking a DL there and looking to fill the backup RB spot in Round 3 (Dwyer, Tate and Hardesty are all possibilities there).

                          biggest sleeper i think in this draft is Mike Williams syracuse...the kid has the athletism and hands of brandon marshall....his character could b an issue but the kid has kept himself busy ...his pro work out apparently great...

                            Okung is going to Detroit. Mark it down.

                            Don't be shocked if Gerald McCoy falls all the way to Buffalo.

                              Okung to Detroit would not surprise me.

                              McCoy falling to Buffalo would.

                                Av's All-Draft-Eligible Team
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                This is my current list of the prospects at each position that I think will make the best Pro players. This is NOT a projection of who will be taken first at each position. For example, I expect Matt Barkley will be the first QB taken, but I don't think he'll be the best Pro from this year's crop of passers.

                                Also included is my current "top sleeper" pick:

                                So... here it is... (for now):

                                WR: Terrance Williams, Baylor
                                WR: DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson
                                OT: Luke Joekel, Texas A&M
                                OG: Chance Warmack, Alabama
                                C: Barrett Jones, Alabama

                                OT: Taylor Lewin, Michigan

                                Too early for a ranked draft board, but here is an alphabetical list of 15 guys I'm watching as possible prospects for the Rams' Round 2 pick.

                                (Some of these guys will likely be gone when the Rams make their selection, but I've tried to list players that are not clear top 25 picks)

                                Budda Baker, FS, Washington

                                Tyrone Crowder, OG, Clemson

                                Amara Darboh, WR, Michigan

                                Dion Dawkins, OT, Temple

                                Pat Elflein, C, Ohio State

                                Dan Feeney, OG, Indiana

                                Isaiah Ford, WR, Virginia Tech

                                Bucky Hodges, TE, Virginia Tech

                                O.J. Howard, TE, Alabama

                                Cooper Kupp, WR, Eastern Washington

                                Ethan Pocic, C, LSU

                                Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin

                                Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson

                                Demarcus Walker, DE, Florida State

                                Av's Final 7 Round Rams' Double-Mock (Wish List/Predictions)
                                by AvengerRam_old
                                This will be my final Rams’ mock, absent another pre-draft trade. I’m listing at each spot the player I want, and the player I expect the Rams to take.

                                Round 1 (6)
                                Who I want: Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
                                Who I expect: Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
                                Blackmon has been my the top player on my board since day one and, despite the efforts of some to hyper-scrutinize him, he remains there tothe end. While the Rams will likely work the phones and try to trade down again, I expect that they will fail to get anoffer that warrants passing on Blackmon.

                                Round 2 (33)
                                Who I want: Brandon Thompson, DT, Clemson
                                Who I expect: Jerrel Worthy, DT, Michigan State
                                I think Fisher will make the DT a spot a priority, and there should be some good options at pick No. 33. My first choice is Thompson, but I suspect he’ll be gone in the first round. Worthy would be a strong choice at this spot as well, and would give the Rams a nice rotation along with Langford and Laws.

                                Round 2 (39)
                                Who I want: Kelechi Osemele, OG/OT, Iowa State
                                Who I expect: Kelechi Osemele, OG/OT, Iowa State
                                Osemele would be the perfect choice at this spot. He would immediately come in and start at OG, and would provide a second option at RT if Jason Smith is not able to stay healthy. Adding him to a line with Saffold, Dahl and Wells would finally give the Rams a strength area in front of Sam Bradford.

                                Round 3 (65)
                                Who I want: Doug Martin, RB, Boise State
                                Who I expect: Mychal Kendricks, LB, California
                                If Martin were to last to this spot, I think he’d be a great understudy and future replacement for Steven Jackson. My guess, however, is that he’ll be selected in Round 2. Kendricks should be there at pick No. 65, and he would fit a big need for the Rams. While he primarily played inside in college,I believe he has the tools to play the SLB spot.

                                Round 4 (96)
                                Who I want: Nick Toon, WR, Wisconsin
                                Who I expect: Dwight Bentley, CB, Louisiana-Lafayette
                                I like the idea of taking two WRs in this draft (despite the fact that the Rams took Pettis and Salas last year). Toon should be available at this spot, and Ithink he’d be a great addition. My expectation, though, is that the Rams will want to add depth in the DB, and they have shown interest in Bentley, who should be available at that spot.

                                Round 6 (171)
                                Who I want: Miles Burris, OLB, San Diego State
                                Who I expect: Isaiah Pead, RB, Cinncinnati
                                I think the Rams really need to load up on young LBs. If Burris is still there at this point, I’dbe very interested. He has great athleticism, and put up impressive numbers last year at San Diego State (72 tackles, 19 tackles for loss, 8 sacks). If the Rams have not filled the RB spot by this point, though, Peadwould be a guy I’d look at a very good choice, and I think his running and receiving skills would...

                                Sakl18's Mock Draft
                                by sakl18
                                In this mock, I wanted to focus on adding playmakers on both side of the ball. I realize that I didn't address DT, but I suspect that Fishead will add another DT via free agency. It also wouldn't surprise me if Amendola ends up going to New England for their second round pick. In that case, that pick would turn into a defensive tackle. Any feedback, regardless if it's positive or negative, is appreciated.

                                1.6 - Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahoma State
                                6'1, 207 lbs, 4.45 40
                                • Constant source of big plays
                                • Ridiculous production
                                • Good hands
                                • Polished route runner
                                • Tremendous YAC
                                • Strong work ethic
                                • Has ability to go up for ball
                                • Has been compared to Terrell Owens

                                Assuming Blackmon is there, he will be the pick. He instantly becomes the Rams go-to number one receiver.

                                2.1 - Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
                                6'4, 215 lbs, 4.36 40
                                • Elite size/speed combination
                                • Displays good concentration; rarely if ever drops ball
                                • Great deep threat
                                • Good body control; can make acrobatic catches
                                • Very raw route runner

                                The Rams double up at wide receiver. Giving Bradford weapons is paramount, and Stephen Hill has the potential to be an elite receiver. Paired with Blackmon, the Rams could have the best one-two punch at receiver in the NFL in a couple years. Hill is a tremendous deep threat, and can do one thing this team lacks: make plays

                                2.6 - Kelechi Osmele, OG, Iowa State
                                6'6, 333 lbs, 32 bench reps
                                • Longest arms at combine
                                • Athletic for size
                                • Powerful run blocker
                                • Quick feet
                                • Has a nasty streak
                                • Can play guard or right tackle
                                • Good reputation as teammate and leader
                                • Durable and experienced

                                Osmele will help do the other most important thing for St. Louis - keep Bradford on his feet. He's a mauling run blocker who can open holes for Jackson, and has the potential to swing out to right tackle should Jason Smith continue to struggle.

                                3.2 - Lavonte David, OLB, Nebraska
                                6'1, 233, 4.65 40
                                • Great speed
                                • Tremendous instincts
                                • Fantastic tackler
                                • Great in run support and coverage
                                • Playmaker
                                • Strong 3 down backer who can blitz

                                If it wasn't for his height, Lavonte David would be in contention with Zach Brown as the top OLB this year. As it is, he could be a tremendous steal in the third round. He has sideline to sideline speed and fantastic instincts. He can play on all three downs and just makes plays, which this defense badly needs. Oh, and the player he most often reminds people of? Derrick Brooks.

                                4.1 - Robert Turbin, RB, Utah State
                                5'10, 222 lbs, 4.44 40. 28 bench reps
                                • Incredible strength for a running back
                                • Strong downhill runner
                                • Has good, but not breakaway speed
                                • Very quick
                                • Great acceleration; gets
