Re-sign

QB Blake Bortles

Trades

Rams trade: Round 2 Pick #25 (57)

Detroit trade: Round 3 Pick #3 (67), Round 4 #3 (109) and Round 6 Pick #3  (182)

The Detroit need playmakers in a bad way so they decide to jump back into the 2nd to grab their guy. With the lack of draft capitol and lack of free agency money. Along with grabbing a pair of edge rushers in free agency. They decided to jump back in the draft in order to accumulate more picks. The Rams utilize the pick from the Cooks trade in order to get more draft picks. We know Les Snead and team loves to trade, so we do just 1 draft trade this year.

 

Draft

2. (20) Clyde Edwards-Helaire-RB, LSU

The Rams are extremely ecstatic as they grab the Best Player Available and replacement to Gurley that the Rams just can't past up on. Clyde has everything that you are looking for in a running back. He is a very explosive back that has an amazing ability to set up defenders in the hole. He has incredible feet and lateral jukes and cuts as is an elusive power back with some nice blend of speed. Clyde balance is effortless at times and is a very effective pass protector. Edwards-Helaire is a mismatch nightmare as a pass catching back where he is a strong route runner with soft hands. Clyde is the total package that will also punish the tackler in front of him. This will give the Rams a similar look like what the Saints had with a Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara rotating backfield with Henderson and also Brown. With this three headed monster the Rams can wear teams down and have some very good receiving options with their backs also.

3. (3) Julian Okwara-OLB, Notre Dame

The Rams decide to grab the edge rushing specialist here with this pick. Julian is an athletic player with an dynamic burst of a first step and bend on his pass rushes. Along with his impressive quickness he has some really good techniques and pass rush counters. He hunts the football extremely well and has really good range to play the pass effectively. The Rams are excited to get a younger version of Clay at this position right now.

3. (20) Jordyn Brooks-ILB, Texas Tech

The Rams utilize this trade pick in order to grab a nice replacement for Littleton in the middle. Jordyn is a fast and dangerous linebacker with excellent sideline to sideline speed for the Texas Tech. He is a strong tackler and has really good awareness with a great motor. Brooks will be a tackling specialist for the Rams as a Day 1 Starter in the middle. Brooks will be able to not be so pressured up the middle as every team will have to focus on Aaron Donald first, then have Okwara and Floyd also coming off the edge also.

3. (40) Tyler Biadasz-C, Wisconsin 

The Rams decided it's time to invest in building a strong interior online. The Rams Front Office is celebrating as the best center in the draft falls to us in the late 3rd. Tyler had an very strong season and career for the Badgers. Biadasz has a strong anchor to handle bull rushes and the strength to sustain his blocks into the whistle blows. Tyler was also strong in pass pro as well as made a living blasting open big holes for the running backs. This is another big hole filled for the Rams as Tyler is a Day 1 Starter.

4. (3) K'Vonn Wallace-S, Clemson 

The Rams and New Defensive Coordinator Brandon Staley is very happy about this pick up. K'Vonn is an absolute baller that will give us very nice talent for Staley's defensive packages. Wallace is very explosive with great speed, as well as a very solid leader and hard hitting playmaking safety in college. Wallace will come right in and fill the Marqui Christian role in our defense. Giving us some great depth with John Johnson coming back, with the ability to slide right in to one of the starting spots if a injury occurs. K'Vonn will also be a nice addition as a special teamer.

4. (20) Hakeem Adeniji-OT, Kansas

The Rams are very serious about protecting there future. Hakeem is an effective tackle in space with good footwork. . Hakeem is an smart football player that has played well at the left tackle position. He has great length and balance, good strength and Awareness also. He would come in and learn behind Whitworth. Adeniji gives us a possible chess peice and option to rotate or start at gaurd/right tackle for this year and possible replacement for Andrew next year or two. 

6. (3) Tyrie Cleveland-WR, Florida

The Rams are excited to see the explosive receiver sitting here at this spot. Tyrie would of gained a lot more attention if it wasn't for this years loaded receiver draft. Cleveland is a true deep threat player with his 4.4 speed to go along with his 6'3 height. He can really eat of cushion with his long strides. Tyrie is a pretty good blocker also to go along with his huge catch radius. This gives the Rams 4 solid receivers again.

6. (20) Kindle Vildor-CB, Georgia Southern 

This is another one of the Rams grabbing the beast available talent left on the board. Kindle in no way once so ever should he be going this late in the draft with the talent and covering abilities that this kid has. Only available here because of how deep this draft is of defensive talent this year. Vildor is a very fast corner with has really good awareness and good recovery speed. His true position is on the outside, but he is versatile enough to play the slot also. Gives us more depth in the backfield as well as another special teams specialist.

7. (20)  Khalil Tate-QB, Arizona

The Rams decide to grab the explosive running QB in Khalil. Khalil does have a strong arm with some solid Awareness. Tate is extremely fast and elusive with the ball in his hands. McVay takes him here to try and develop his accuracy and field pocket vision. Tate will give us a great scout team look as we prepare to play the Cardinals and Seattle twice a year. Can be groomed as a possible back up of the future.

There are a few things I would do differently. I'm a fan of CEH but I don't know if I'm a fan of his at pick #52. I think there are just 1-2 RBs that if they're on the board with that pick, lets take them. I think I take Zack Moss over Helaire if I had to choose. And I also take a WR before the 6th round. and lastly, I like Khalil Tate's skill set as well, but his hard headedness is going to lead him to the CFL.

Thanks for the response, I am a big fan of Zach Moss also. But CEH is just Special in my opinion. The way he ran, juke and route ran through the SEC was just flat out impressive. If it wasn't for Swift, Taylor and Dobbins possible going before him, no way he would still even be on the board otherwise in most years draft. 

I totally get the want to draft a receiver before the 6th. But I am completely sold on Josh Reynolds coming out strong this year. So why should we have to draft a receiver with our first picks to just fill our 4th Receiver slot? Now I absolutely like Tyrie Cleveland and Jeff Thomas later in the draft as explosive receivers who could fill Reynolds/Mike Thomas role for this year.

Yeah I totally agree about Tate, just decided to take a flyer on him to see if he could ever develop his passing side.

Tyrie Cleveland will be a really good special teamer, but I wouldn't expect much of him as a WR.

I’m a fan of Moss too but CEH is in a whole different level. 

I think he’s the second best RB in the draft. He reminds me of Jones-Drew.

Nice Mock, I love CEH, Biadasz and Jordyn Brooks on our team. 

I dont think Brooks lasts that long though

I also like CEH, whilst I don't think he's an elite athlete I think he's coachable and has a lot of positives that we can scheme around. I think he feeds into this backfield committee. Henderson to take the top off, Brown to pound it and CEH to do more of the technical side. I like it. Go with the hottest hand at the time, keep everyone fresh. 

All that being said, I can't see us taking a RB with our first pick. I also think we move to a 12 personnel starter, so Higbee and Everett are both classed as starters rather than one of them with Reynolds, Woods and Kupp. I suspect we will add a WR quite early into our draft picks.

Hey jrry32, wow I just don't see just a special teamer with Tyrie. He's 6'4, runs a 4.4, has good hands where he made some exciting catches and is a good blocker. He made the most out of the lack of passes that went his way. I could totally see him operating as the 4th receiver taking Reynolds spot.

Hey, don't forget we didn't see the Rams grabbing Gurley with our first pick early in that draft. The Rams are going to beed to draft the best talent available. I love me some Moss but what if we wait until the 3rd and he's selected before we draft. CEH is a potential star in the making, especially in this offense with the talent and system that we have. We would look like a deeper Saints offense. Please I believe that would take some of the heat off the FO for releasing our star running back going into a new stadium.

Also if you think that we are going more 12 personal than why would we waste a earlier draft pick on a 4th string receiver for our team?

Yeah, I'm not saying it's completely out the question, but I feel the Rams moved up for Henderson so they're happy. They seem to be high on him. They have Brown, who has been a solid performer. I think they take a late round RB to compliment it, but believe they will go forward with them two. I feel they will need a WR because after Reynolds, Kupp & Woods there is a considerable drop off. Also, Kupp needs to get paid - what if we don't want to pay what he wants? I hope that's not the case, but we need consider a future without Kupp. No question Ramsey gets paid. 

OL, MLB & DB being the main focus. The only position I feel we're completely going to leave is DL.

UF had a lot of WR talent, but there's still no excuse for a guy who is supposedly a NFL WR to be the 5th best WR on the team (Jefferson, Swain, Grimes, and Hammond were all higher in the pecking order). Cleveland is tall and fast in a straight line, but he's not good at the other things WRs do. He'll likely stick in the NFL because he's an excellent special teamer, but I don't see him being a factor at WR outside of occasionally popping up as a deep threat.

Yeah, there's something to him that causes him to be very much the "fast not quick" type, which has limited his route tree, and visibly depriving him of functional change of direction ability.  And when a guy is physically gifted enough to run fast at his size, it's been my experience that the root cause of the above is tight hips.  The biggest markers I've found of translatable success in the league for WR prospects are high RAC numbers and loose hips/diverse route tree.  I don't really see either in Cleveland.
