  • Av's FINAL 2019 7 Round Rams Mock

    Here's my final projection:

    Round 1(31): Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson
    After much deliberation, I知 sticking with Lawrence as my pick for the Rams. I知 not certain he値l be there, but if he is, I think the opportunity to get a guy who could single-handedly improve the run defense (which was a problem for much of 2018), would be too good to pass up. If he痴 gone, I壇 say Jerry Tillery of Notre Dame is a strong possibility (provided that the Rams want to move Michael Brockers back to NT), and my 努ild cards would be Erik McCoy, C/OG, Texas A&M and Johnathan Abram, S, Mississippi State. Lawrence is my guy, though, so I知 hoping to see him next to Aaron Donald next Fall. Alternate: Jerry Tillery, DL, Notre Dame

    Round 3(94): Sean Bunting, CB, Central Michigan
    I previously had Bunting going late to the Rams, but I think he値l be taken on Day 2. If the Rams could snag him here, they壇 have a CB with nice size (60, 195) and very good speed (4.42) to team up with Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters in 2019, and move into a starting spot in the future. You can never have too many quality CBs. Alternate: David Long, CB, Michigan

    Round 3(99): Nate Davis, OL, North Carolina-Charlotte
    This is a bit of an under-the-radar pick. Davis played at a smaller school and had a few issues in his college career, but has emerged as a sleeper pick for many. He spent most of his career at OT in college, but projects as an OG. I believe he could compete for Austin Blythe痴 spot right away, and would bring more size (316 lbs) to the position. The Rams had a private workout with Davis, so he痴 at least on their radar. Alternate: Connor McGovern, OG, Penn State

    Round 4(133): David Long, LB, West Virginia
    Another guy who was on my previous mock, but at a later spot. My thinking on Long is that, while the Rams may want to incorporate bigger players at the ILB position (Matthews, Kiser), there are also situations in which they would prefer to have a guy who is more like Mark Barron a hybrid player who has the speed to keep up with TEs and RBs coming out of the backfield. Long (4.45 forty) has that kind of speed. He also could be used in blitz packages, as he excelled in that area. Alternate: Vosean Joseph, LB, Florida

    Round 5 (169): Will Harris, S, Boston College
    Despite having signed Erik Weddle, the Rams have shown a lot of interest in safeties, having met with many prospects. I think this is due to (1) Weddle痴 age, and (2) the desire to have strong DB depth. Harris would join his fellow Boston College alum, John Johnson, and brings great size (61, 207) and speed (4.41). Alternate: Sheldrick Redwine, S, Miami

    Round 6(203): Kerryth Whyte, Jr., RB/KR, Florida Atlantic
    I believe that Sean McVay would like to add a guy who can provide additional big play potential to the offense. Whyte is a speedster (4.37 forty) who had TDs of 77 and 75 yards last year. He would immediately have a role as the KR, and could be a nice change of pace for the RB corps.Alternate: Tony Pollard, RB/WR/KR, Memphis

    Round 7(251): Malik Reed, EDGE, Nevada
    I think the Rams are reasonably well set at the EDGE spot for 2019, with a depth chart that included Dante Folwer, Samson Ebukam, Clay Matthews (if he doesn稚 line up inside) and Ogbonnia Okoronkwo. Reed would be a guy who would likely be more of a 途edshirt/special teams ace as a rookie, but could ascend in the future. Alternate: Curtis Atkins, OLB, Memphis

    Thanks for posting your mock AV. With Ramik and Hager remaining unsigned and Kiser presumably promoting to the starting group, the Rams definitely need some talent to fill in on special teams. So the chances of the Rams snagging a speedy linebacker like David Long, and/or guys like Reed on the 3rd day, are really high imo. I expect a bunch of undrafted guys to be brought in too.

    Go Rams

      What is your opinion about Hjalte Froholdt? I would love to have a Dane playing for the Rams and I think we need OL help.

        Day 3 prospect. Strikes me as a guy who will most likely fit as a utility backup on the interior OL (can play OG and C).

          Thanks for input, it will be interesting to see if he will be the first Dane to be drafted to the NFL since Morten Andersen in 1986. I surely hope that he does not end up with a team that I hate

              Av's 7 Round Rams Mock
              by AvengerRam
              Here is my current projection:

              Round 1(31): Dexter Lawrence, DT, Clemson
              There are several LBs/EDGE rushers I covet, but I fear that they will all be gone before the Rams make their selection. Looking at my board, I'm projecting that Lawrence will be the guy. He would immediately replace Ndamukong Suh, and provide a real barrier to opposing teams looking to run between the tackles.

              Round 3(94): Connor McGovern, OT/OG, Penn State
              I like his size (6'5, 323) and versatility (played both OT and OG in college). He has a bit of rawness to him, but is the type of player I believe the Rams could "coach up" to a level where he could be a very effective starter.

              Round 3(99): Christian Miller, EDGE, Alabama
              Miller was buried within an elite roster and hampered by minor injuries at Alabama, but still showed some real playmaking flashes. I think he's a guy who could prove to be a real steal if he gets in the right system and stays healthy.

              Round 4(133): Sean Bunting, CB, Central Michigan
              Have to like his numbers (6'0, 195, 4.42 forty) and his ball skills (9 interceptions in college). He'd be a good understudy behind Marcus Peters and Aqib Talib, who are both set to be UFAs in 2020.

              Round 5(169): David Long, LB, West Virginia
              I won't be surprised if the Rams supplement their LB corps with a veteran acquisition (*NOTE* I wrote that before we signed Clay Matthews) but, right now, adding some young talent makes sense. Long is undersized at (5'11, 227 lbs.) but is very fast (4.45) and always near the ball (111 tackles, 19 TFL, 8 sacks). I'm sure Wade Phillips could find a role for him.

              Round 6(203): Tony Pollard, RB/RS, Memphis
              I admit that this may be wishful thinking, as Pollard could be gone earlier on Day 3, but he's an intriguing prospect who can run, catch and return kicks. Sean McVay would enjoy finding uses for him.

              Will Harris, S, Boston College
              Excellent athlete with upside. The Rams filled the immediate need at safety with the signing of Eric Weddle, but they'll need to groom a replacement. We did well with our last BC safety, so why not go back to the well?

              Av's Full 2018 Rams Mock
              by AvengerRam
              THIS ONE IS OUTDATED: SCROLL DOWN FOR MY FINAL MOCK!


              I'm somewhat reluctant to post this as the Rams continue to make deals, but here's my current effort:

              Round 1 (23): Leighton Vander Esch, LB, Boise State
              Round 3 (87): Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, OLB/Edge, Oklahoma
              Round 4 (111): Dante Pettis, WR, Washington
              Round 4 (135): Geron Christian, OT, Louisville
              Round 6 (176): Will Clapp, OG/C, LSU
              Round 6 (183): Ito Smith, RB, Southern Mississippi
              Round 6 (194): Deshon Elliot, S, Texas
              Round 6 (195): Du歎onta Lampkin, DT, Oklahoma
              Round 6 (198): Deon Yelder, TE, Western Kentucky

              In Round 1, LB was my clear target. I considered going with an OLB/Edge (particularly if Harold Landry is still on the board), but went instead with Vander Esch. I think he would be a Day 1 started who would help a great deal towards improving the Rams biggest weakness: run defense.

              Okoronkwo is a very good prospect for the EDGE spot who I think could still be there in Round 3. He痴 big, tough and a good tackler. His play stood out to me in the college playoffs.

              Pettis (cousin of former Ram Austin Pettis) is, in my opinion, a Sean McVay type WR. He is a very good route runner and can compete with Josh Reynolds for playing time.

              Christian and Clapp would provide youth and depth on the OL. While neither would be expected to start as rookies, both have sufficient experience to play in a pinch.

              Smith is a guy I致e mentioned before as a good candidate for the 田hange-of-pace role in the Rams backfield. He is undersized, but quick and adept at pass-catching.

              Elliot could provide needed depth at the safety. Lampkin could be useful as a short-yardage specialist. Yelder is a strong blocker who could replace Derek Carrier.

              Av's Rams 7 Round Mock (3/20/13)
              by AvengerRam_old
              Here's my current projection, based upon who I think could be available, who I believe the Rams might be targeting, and who I hope they select:

              Round 1 (#16): Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
              I'm about 50/50 on whether Warmack will make it this far, but he is, in my opinion, too good a prospect to pass up. He'd be an immediate starter and, along with the addition of Jake Long, would give the Rams the most talented OL its had in years.

              Round 1 (#22): Tavon Austin, WR, West...

              RFE's 7 Round Rams Mock Draft (Version 1.0)
              by AvengerRam
              With the Combine done and the first wave of FA in our rear-view mirror, its time to make an initial projection for the Rams' draft.

              While there is still a lot of uncertainty (center position, Trumaine Johnson, etc.), I think this projection would fill a lot of needs and provide some quality additions.

              Round 2 (37): Evan Engram, TE/WR, Mississippi
              Here痴 the big receiver the Rams need! Engram is 63, 235 and runs a 4.42. He can do a lot of the things Jordan Reed did for coach McVay in Washington, and is faster than his Redskins counterpart. I think he痴 a better value than the true WRs likely to be there at this point (Alternate choices: David Njoku, TE, Miami; Chris Godwin, WR, Penn State).

              Round 3 (69): Tyus Bowser, OLB, Houston
              Wade Phillips defense is predicated on pressure. That痴 where Bowser comes in. He projects as a 3-4 edge rusher with enough size (247 lbs.) and speed (4.65 forty) to stay on the field all three downs.

              Round 4 (112): Tyler Orlosky, C, West Virginia
              I have a feeling that the Rams will try to make a move at center, but if they end up with a guy like Nick Mangold, they値l need to start developing a successor. Orlosky might not still be on the board at this point, but if he is, he壇 be a good choice.

              Round 4 (141): Rayshawn Jenkins, FS, Miami
              The Rams could use some depth at the safety position, and Jenkins is a true FS. He has the speed to cover the back end and prototypical size (61, 214).

              Round 5 (149): Damontae Kazee, CB, San Diego State
              Classic example of a guy who looks the part on the field and produces (a real ball hawk, in particular), but isn稚 the ideal size (510, 184) or a blazer (4.54 forty). The Rams will need depth at the CB spot, though, and I think Kazee is a guy who could prove to be a 堵amer.

              Round 6 (189): Amba Etta-Tawo, WR, Syracuse
              At this point, the Rams could take a flyer on a guy with decent measurable (61, 209; 4.49 forty) and a reputation for winning on 50/50 balls. Gotta love this stat line from his final college game (against Pitt): 13 receptions, 178 yards, 5 TDs.

              Round 6 (206): De但ngelo Henderson, RB, Coastal Carolina
              Compact build (57, 208) and good speed (4.48 forty). Also a very good receiver (97 receptions in college). Perfect replacement for Benny Cunningham, who will likely find a new home in free agency.

              Round 7 (234): Hardy Nickerson, ILB, Illinois
              Yes, he痴 the former Pro Bowler痴 son. After playing at Cal (Jared Goff was a teammate), he transferred to play under DC Dad. Productive, high-motor, limited physically. Exactly what you壇 expect with a guy in the 7th round. I壇 take a chance, though, on a guy with his bloodlines, character, and track record. At worst, I壇 expect him to be a quality special teams player....

              Av's Rams 7 Round Mock (3/20/13)
              by AvengerRam_old
              Here's my current projection, based upon who I think could be available, who I believe the Rams might be targeting, and who I hope they select:

              Round 1 (#16): Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
              I'm about 50/50 on whether Warmack will make it this far, but he is, in my opinion, too good a prospect to pass up. He'd be an immediate starter and, along with the addition of Jake Long, would give the Rams the most talented OL its had in years.

              Round 1 (#22): Tavon Austin, WR, West Virginia
              There are two things that Les Snead has said that make me think Austin could be the pick here. First, he has repeatedly stressed the need to acquire playmakers. Second, when asked about Mike Wallace, he stated "we already have that guy" (referring to Chris Givens). Well... we certainly don't have a guy like Austin.

              Round 2 (#46): Eric Reid, S, LSU
              I love the idea of Reid at this spot. Another immediate starter and, in my opinion, a player who has been downgraded more than he should have been. Plus, he has the same type of physical attidude as Finnegan, Jenkins and Johnson.

              Round 3 (#78): Sio Moore, OLB, UConn
              My top sleeper (though his workouts have caused more and more people to notice him). Moore has the reputation of being very disciplined and has the ability to play both the strong and weak side. Also has some pass rush skills, which could be utilized in blitz packages.

              Round 4 (#113): Mike Gillislee, RB, Florida
              My top RB, Le'Veon Bell, should be long gone by this point, but the Rams get another young back for their stable here. Gillislee can run between the tackles, and has enough speed to break a big play. He'd compliment Richardson and Pead well, I believe.

              Round 5 (#149): Earl Wolff, S, North Carolina State
              Similar to last year, when the Rams took two WRs and two RBs in the draft, the Rams go back to the well at safety. Wolff is an underrated prospect. He may not be a superstar, but he does everything well and has the speed (4.44 at the Combine) to guard against big plays.

              Round 6 (#184): Brandon Williams, DT, Missouri Southern State
              Williams is a monster sized (6'2, 325) small school prospect. He turned some heads during Senior Bowl week, and could be a valuable addition to the Rams DL rotation.

              Round 7 (#222): Rod Sweeting, CB, Georgia Tech
              You can never have too many CBs. Sweeting is a smart player who surprised with at 4.42 forty at the Combine. I like his potential as a special teams player and as depth in the DB.
