Draft Watch - O-line watch (Mid-September edition)

After watching the Rams first two games of the season, it seems pretty obvious that we need to bring in some personnel on the O-line.  Free agency is always an option, but it's one the Rams haven't really explored much in recent years.  Yes, I know McMichael and Witherspoon and Bell and Becht, etc., but we don't make a splash in free agency.

With that in mind, I'll run through some of the best linemen in college so we can keep an eye on them throughout the rest of the college season.

O-line prospects after the fold.

Tackles

5-star

1.) Michael Oher, Ole Miss (Sr.) - 6'6", 325 lbs.

2.)  Andre Smith, Alabama (Jr.) - 6'4", 340 lbs.

3.) Eugene Monroe, Virginia (Sr.) - 6'6", 315 lbs.

4-star

4.) Phil Loadholt, Oklahoma (Sr.) - 6'8", 337 lbs.

5.) Alex Boone, Ohio St. (Sr.) - 6'8", 312 lbs.

6.) Jason Smith, Baylor (Sr.) - 6'5", 298 lbs.

7.) Jamon Meredith, S. Carolina (Sr.) - 6'5", 301 lbs.

3-star

8.) Fenuki Tupou, Oregon (Sr.) - 6'6", 322 lbs.

9.) Jason Watkins, Florida (Sr.) - 6'6", 298 lbs.

10.) Ramon Foster, Tennessee (Sr.) - 6'6", 325 lbs.

Guards

5-star

1.) Duke Robinson, Oklahoma (Sr.) - 6'5", 335 lbs.

2.) Herman Johnson, LSU (Sr.) - 6'7", 351 lbs.

4-star

3.) Kraig Urbik, Wisconsin (Sr.) - 6'6", 332 lbs.

4.) Cedric Dockery, Texas (Sr.) - 6'4", 320 lbs.

5.) Tyronne Green, Auburn (Sr.) - 6'2", 309 lbs.

Centers

5-star

1.) Alex Mack, California (Sr.) - 6'4", 316 lbs.

2.) Jonathan Luigs, Arkansas (Sr.) - 6'4", 314 lbs.

3.) Max Unger, Oregon (Sr.) - 6'5", 300 lbs.

4.) Eric Wood, Louisville (Sr.) - 6'4", 309 lbs.

4-star

5.) Brett Helms, LSU (Sr.) - 6'2", 283 lbs.

 

Obviously, you have to gravitate towards the tackles, and those top three are serious NFL prospects.  Andre Smith, being a junior, has less experience and less field time on which we could judge him, so I guess there's a bit more risk in picking him which is why I had him at #2 behind Oher.
