Ive spent a large amount of today and the past few weeks thinking about the upcoming rams draft. I know it is a ways a way but I can't stop thinking about how this draft could put the rams over the hump. I have been thinking about it and am looking for some more conversation on this topic because I can't get enough of it. After thinking about the prospects of a number one wr, I am beginning to believe that it may benefit the rams the most to emphasize defense in this draft. The idea of having an elite pass rusher on the other end of chris long is tantalizing to say the least. I also think that it would benefit our team tremendously to take care of our two olb spots in this draft. With those three spots taken care of I think our defense could be one of the scarier defenses in the league. Such receivers as Green Jones Baldwin and Floyd could help, but I keep thinking about the possibilities that Alexander, Avery, or even Onobun could turn into that threat that we have wanted. Right now i think the best draft would include a top d end such as Quinn, Clayborn, or Bowers. In the second round I would look for a player such as Ayers or even maybe Greg Jones to put on the outside. Third I also would look linebacker if there was one available with elite upside and then I would start to look at the wideouts. Basically, I would go DE,LB,LB early. I think its too early to tell whether Alexander or Onobun can turn into the threats we want them to and with the defensive focus on this draft, they would have the opportunity to develop with a stout d.
Players I really like in the draft
Robert Quinn, Daquon Bowers, Akeem Ayers, Greg Jones, Sean Spence?(ive seen alot of prospect rankings and he has been on none of them), Kelvin Shepperd, Casey Mathews, Greg Romeus if he falls.
I realize that this is an extremely scrambled posts but the main purpose to spark talk about who should be taken. I think this class will have a ton of talent and, thus, many very good players will fall deeper than expected. I really hope, and am fairly confident that the rams will capitalize on this.
