2012 Rams Mock Draft

So I think we can trade down with Washington for their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd this year, plus maybe a 2nd or 3rd next year. So the Redskins take RG3, Vikings take Kalil, Browns have Blackmon, and the Bucs take Morris Claiborne. So that leaves us with Jonathon Martin, Riley Rieff, Dre Kirkpatrick, and Alshon Jeffery. So with the 6th pick we take

1. Riley Reiff LT, Iowa. Good value at 6, will protect Bradford for years and can help in the run game.

2a. Zach Brown OLB, North Carolina. If Mohamed Sanu falls to the second we should consider him, otherwise we should take Zach Brown. He would be the best OLB we have had in a while starting day one. Future stud.

2b. Brandon Thomson DT, Clemson. Fills big need in the middle. Now we can get rid of Fred Robbins.

3a. Lavonte David OLB, Nebraska. Should we take 2 OLB's in the first 3 rounds? I think we can if we have five picks in the first three rounds. Just think of this linebacker core: Lavonte David at WLB, Laurinaitis in the middle, and Brown at SLB. Eh, it's alright i guess..

3b. Lucas Nix OG, Pitt. If we do actually let go of Jacob Bell we would need a replacemet. Nix is a big guy at 6'6 310, hopefully he could put that to good use at the next level.

4. Tavon Austin RB/WR/KR. Maybe a little early for him. In fact I dont even know if he declared because I have heard zero on him. But he is a great returner, can catch in the slot, but I think RB suits him better in the NFL. He has great vision, has great athleticism, and can get around almost anyone. As shown here:

6. Winston Guy SS, Kentucky. We could use some depth since we released Jermaile Hines and Jonathon Nelson for whatever reason.

7. BPA

Now I know I dont have us taking a wide receiver in this mock but this is based on us getting Brandon Lloyd and DX back.
