Reading Ram's 4 round Mock Draft


Ok so here is my first mock as we roll through the pro days! Perhaps a bit of wishful thinking here but I think some suprising players will drop a bit due to the depth of players in this draft.

Enjoy!


1. St. Louis Rams

Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma

Sam Bradford has passed this medical check with "flying colors" http://www.fantasysp.com/player/nfl/Sam_Bradford/821229 or so he says and if the truth was otherwise I am sure it would be front page news.

The Rams have been preparing their lines and building inside out for the last two years. While this project still has a few pieces to put in place hey are close and they are staring a franchise QB right in the face. There is a strong and reasonable concern about Bradford's arm but the fact is that the shoulder surgery is something that will make the shoulder stronger by virture of how the surgery works.

At his proday Bradford will be asked to throw all of the NFL routes that he will be expected to throw once he is drafted. If he can do this and do it well on his Pro day then he is the pick at number 1.

While many folks are advocating a later round pick or waiting until next year there is a serious concern that neiter will actually happen. This is the chance for the Rams to take a big step in their rebuilding proces. While there is no such thing as a "sure thing" this is about as close as they will get for a very long time.

I will go with a very respected players personnal evaluators summary of Bradford being a "Better prospect then Peyton Manning" coming out. Peyton had many of the same knocks on him coming out and frankly no one looking back is saying "man I wish we would have had a franchise DT to take over Peyton"!!

Links for Bradford:

Gil Brandt "When I see him today versus Manning in 1998," Brandt said, "he looks like a better prospect."

Round 2:
Saint Louis Rams:

Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas, 6-4/255
Kindle suprisingly slips to the second round in a James L. fashion the Rams get another great second round LB. Kindle has a great ability to rush the passer and is sound in pass coverage. He can be an upgrade at SAM or very possibly project to WILL LB in the 4-3 defense.


Round 3:

Saint Louis Rams:

Tyson Alualu, DT, California

Defensive tackle needs some depth and additional talent. This DT will help in both the run game and he can be explosive in the pass rush. This will be a great addition to the Rams D line.



Round 4:

Saint Louis Rams:

Austen Lane: DE, Murray State

The Rams have serious holes with the likely departure of Little and Hall this is a strong prospect at DE that fits well in the 4-3 defense and will compliment the line playing across from Chris long very nicely!
