RamsFan24 Mock 4

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)
I feel that with this mock we will be in an excellent position to win the NFC again. We will even have some very good talent at areas of concerns last year. 
 
NFL Draft
 
Trade
LA Rams trade Round 1 Pick #31
Denver Broncos trade Round 2 Pick #10, Round 3 Pick #10 and Round 5 Pick #18 (from Minnesota)
 
Denver decides to jump up into the 1st round in order to grab the player that they have been fascinated by. The Rams jump over 10 picks back into the 2nd round in order to pick up 2 additional picks. Les Snead is a wheel and dealer and he is able to grab a 3rd and their 2nd 5th for missing out on the top 40 Picks.
 
Round 2 Pick #10   Eric McCoy-OC/OG, Texas A&M
 
The Rams decided to move back and they grab their starter at center. Eric is an athletic lineman with strong hands to engage with second level blocks.  McCoy has great field vision, as he handled his own all season. McCoy is a great replacement for Sullivan as he will be a plug in play center. The Rams are happy to grab another very talented lineman in McCoy. Jumping back 10 picks was very risky, but the Rams grab an extra couple picks and a future star in the middle.
 
Round 3 Pick #10   Jachai Polite-OLB, Florida
 
The Rams run up to the podium and grab an pass rushing specialist in Jachai. He drops here because of his terrible Combine interviews and pro day performance. Polite surly has late 1st, 2nd round talent, but because of some character concerns and bad offseason, he drops right in our laps. Coach Barry and Phillips should be able to tap into this young man in order to get the most out of him. Jachai has excellent speed and length off the edge and a solid base in run defense. Polite will come in and learn behind Clay as a rotational specialist and is just to good of a player on the field to pass up here in the early third.
 
Round 3 Pick #31   Juan Thornhill-FS, Virginia
 
Another great pick up for the Rams which will give us some much needed versatility and depth in the secondary. Juan is a sleeper pick in this years safety class. With Abrams, Adderley, Gardner-Johnson, Rapp, Thompson and now Savage all possibly jumping Thornhill. We grab a very talented safety to replace LaMarcus Joyner/ Weddle in the future. Juan is a playmaker who has elite speed and range, he is a hard hitter and has good vision. Wade can utilize Thornhill in his different packages where he is a safety, corner or extra coverage linebacker when needed. This could be another 3rd round steal at Safety like Johnson was a couple years ago.
 
 
Round 3 Pick #37   Germaine Pratt-ILB, N.C. State
 
Germaine is a strong and physical freak with great sideline to sideline speed. He will come in and immediately compete with Micah Kiser for the ILB spot that is open from Barron's release. Pratt is an absolute tackling machine who has great vision and sheds blocks really well. Germaine will come in and help bolster the run defense, as he was great against the run and is very solid in pass coverage. Pratt has all the intangibles to be a really good inside linebacker in Wade Phillips defense.
 
Round 4 Pick #31   Gerald Willis III-DT, Miami
 
The Rams aren't playing in the draft this year grabbing the best talent available. Gerald absolutely came on this year, finally putting together a really good year. Willis lived in the back field where he racked up tackles for loss, sacks and just was flat out disruptive in the middle. Gerald has had some serious issues in the past, getting kicked out of Florida, sitting out the entire last season and so on. So because of character issues and 1 solid year of play, the Rams grab a 2nd Round talent at the end of the 4th. Willis will come in and be an excellent replacement for Suh. This could be another very scary tandem up front for the Rams.
 
Round 5 Pick #18  Rodney Anderson-RB, Oklahoma
 
The more and more film that I have watched on Rodney just gets me more and more excited. We grab another super talented playmaker that is only here this late in the draft possibly because of his injury history. If Anderson can stay healthy he would give McVay a very nice little rotational weapon whenever Todd needs a breather. This kid can be another nice running and pass catching weapon for us.
 
 
Round 5 Pick #31  Olisaemeka Udoth-OT, Elon
 
The Rams decide to grab another lineman in the years draft with versatility. Udoth is a big strong Tackle with strong hands and a good anchor, making it hard for defensive lineman to shed off his blocks. Udoth will give us a back up tackle for depth, and a rotational guard if needed. The Rams now have filled the roster holes for depth on the line with McCoy starting and Udoth learning behind Whitworth and Havenstein.
 
Round 6 Pick #31  Sean Bunting-CB, Central Michigan
 
The Rams decide to grab another draft sleeper in Bunting. Sean is a tall corner who played with good awareness and really good speed. Sean will come in and learn behide Talib and Peters and compete for the 4th corner spot. Now the Rams have filled their roster in very well in area of weakness last year.
 
Round 7 Pick #37   Easton Stick-QB, North Dakota State
 
The Rams take a flyer on a developmental QB late in the draft. He was a winner who made some very nice throws since Carson Wentz left. Easton has some explosive running ability and some nice intangibles in order for Sean to try and develop.

Same critique as with BStan. I think it's a little optimistic in some areas, but it's possible. However, it looks like Bunting has jumped into 3rd/4th round range. I'm torn on Willis. His all or nothing style irks me a bit. When he's on, he's extremely disruptive, but he doesn't play with good leverage despite his size and gets handled with ease too often for a guy with his talent.
