    Only 6 out of your 40 are on offense. Not criticising or disagreeing with you... it's just telling of Rams' needs

      Nick's Top 50 Rams Draft Board for Day Two
      by Nick
      The first round of the 2020 NFL Draft is over. Like other years, one can see the value of having multiple second round picks; a number of prospects considered to be options in the first round are still available, putting the Rams in a nice spot to get some good additions to their roster this evening.

      In looking over the remaining available players, here is my Rams Big Board.

      This board is specific to the Rams and what I think the Rams need. Thus, I have removed quarterback and defensive tackle, because I don't perceive enough of a need there to warrant a second day pick.

      Please feel free to respond with your thoughts or your own big board!

      2020 NFL Draft: Final Top 250 Big Board, with 21 receivers in the top 100
      by Nick
      2020 NFL Draft prospect rankings: Final Top 250 Big Board, with 21 receivers in the top 100
      The receiver class is loaded, the offensive tackle group is top-heavy, and there are plenty of quality defensive backs
      Chris Trapasso
      1 hr ago • 14 min read

      After months watching and re-watching film of hundreds of draft prospects and analyzing athletic testing, my final Big Board for the 2020 NFL Draft is set it digital stone.

      No major surprises this year at the top spot at any position. Well, maybe Harrison Bryant from Florida Atlantic as my top tight end?

      Joe Burrow's my No. 1 overall prospect.

      Before I get to the rankings, I must note I have a "position addition" included in my grading system that's factored in after I get a "raw grade" for each prospect based on positional value. Quarterbacks, of course, get the biggest boost. Then edge rushers and offensive tackles, and so on. Running backs receive zero position addition. Incorporating that concept seemed logical to me when constructing a Big Board that wasn't team-specific.

      Next to each prospect's position is a number. For reference convenience, that number represents their ranking at their respective position.

      1. Joe Burrow, QB1, LSU
      2. Chase Young, EDGE1, Ohio St.
      3. Tua Tagovailoa, QB2, Alabama
      4. Jeffrey Okudah, CB1, Ohio State
      5. Tristan Wirfs, OT1, Iowa
      6. CeeDee Lamb, WR1, Oklahoma
      7. Isaiah Simmons, LB1, Clemson
      8. Jerry Jeudy, WR2, Alabama
      9. Justin Herbert, QB3, Oregon
      10. Javon Kinlaw, DL1, South Carolina

      Burrow and Young are no-brainers. Tagovailoa's raw grade was actually the sixth-highest in the class, but his position addition bumps him to No. 3. This could be the lowest you'll see Isaiah Simmons. For as much as I watched his film with my jaw on my desk, I did notice his twitch doesn't align with the rest of his freakish athleticism. In short, Lamb got the top receiver spot because of more dynamic yards-after-the-catch ability and better contested-catch skill than Jeudy. Herbert has his flaws -- at times, his accuracy and reading complex coverages -- but he also can be tremendous on difficult throws that require elite arm talent, and I like his athleticism and experience. Kinlaw is my top defensive lineman for many reasons, and he's ahead of Derrick Brown because of his pass-rushing prowess.

      11. K'Lavon Chaisson, EDGE2, LSU
      12. Andrew Thomas, OT2, Georgia
      13. Tee Higgins, WR3, Clemson
      14. Henry Ruggs III, WR4, Alabama
      15. Jedrick Wills, OT3, Alabama
      16. Curtis Weaver, EDGE3, Boise State
      17. Josh Jones, OT4, Houston
      18. Mekhi Becton, OT5, Louisville
      19. Xavier McKinney, S1, Alabama
      20. Derrick Brown, DL2, Auburn
      21. Jalen Reagor, WR5, TCU
      22. Kristian Fulton, CB2, LSU
      23. Jordan Love, QB4,...

      TSN: Best players available for 2nd, 3rd rounds of 2018 NFL Draft

      NFL Draft 2018: Best players available for second, third rounds
      April 26, 2018 11:49pm EDT

      Published on Apr. 26, 2018

      The list of best players available as the 2018 NFL Draft moves to the second round includes several prospects who easily could have been selected in the first round. There is value to be had in Day 2 of the draft at running back, wide receiver, offensive line and cornerback, specifically.

      Just because a player is still available as the NFL Draft moves to Day 2 does not mean he isn’t as likely to succeed as a first-rounder — far from it. Many second-round picks have gone on to Hall of Fame-caliber pro careers. The same can be said for third-round picks.

      Below are the best players available at each position as the 2018 NFL Draft moves to the second and third rounds. They’re based on player rankings from SN’s pre-draft big board of the top 100 prospects.

      Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State

      Nyheim Hines, RB, N.C. State
      Royce Freeman, RB, Oregon
      Kerryon Johnson, RB, Auburn
      Bo Scarbrough, RB, Alabama
      Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona State

      Wonderlic Scores from Combine
      by ramhard
      Here are the full list of wonderlic scores from combine. I don't think they mean too much on the defense side of the ball (except for safeties and middle linebackers). I think they mean more to offensive players, especially those that have to make reads and learn the Rams complicated playbook. The concern is that neither Brown (12) or Barnes (16) did all that great. The average is 21.9 with average for OT about 25, with Center and QB having the highest average position score (read and make decisions positions, followed by TE's and ILB (same read and make decisions). The lowest are the reaction positions (WR, CB, RB). Here are the average scores by position, and then the full list individually. I think in the past the Rams have looked at this favorably (didn't Curtis score high).

      Pos. Avg.
