So here goes nothin Rams fans.
ASSUME for purposes of this mock that we sign the following in FA:
1. At TE either Cook/TN, Keller/NYJ or Davis/WSH
2. At OLB either D.Smith/Jac or S.Phillips/SD
I would then prioritize our needs in the draft as follows:
1A.(16) OT ... one of the top 4 hopefully. Assume Joeckel is gone by 16. That leaves Matthews, Lewan or E.Fisher. I would take any of those guys. If they are all gone, either trade down or go with Warmack if he's there or another thought is WR K.Allen or TE Eifert or Ertz.
1B.(21?) WR ... one of the top 4 in this order. K.Allen, T.Williams, D.Hopkins or T.Austin.
2.(47) S ... The reason I've chosen to go S here instead of 1B is due to all the talented choices there will be at this level to choose from. SS ... Elam or Thomas. OR at FS ... I suspect Vaccaro & Reid will be gone, so TJ McD, Jefferson, Swearinger or Rambo. ALTERNATE position in case they go S with 1B ... WR ... Patterson, Woods, Hunter or Bailey.
3.(79) OLB ... Greene, Thomas or Jenkins ALTERNATE choice OG Warford
4.(111) TE ... Surprise everybodys fav Fauria. ALTERNATE choices: WR ... D.Rogers or Q.Patton. RB ... L.Bell, A.Ellington or M.Gillislee. QB ... EJ Manual.
5.(143) OG ... Jackson, Bailey or Uzzi
6.(175) S ... SS ... Shaun Williams or Duke Williams FS ... Hall or Evans
7.(207) OT ... Johnson, Wetzel or Becton.
I intentionally went heavy on the O side of the ball because it is way behind the D in talent. I went with certain positions in certain rounds because of the groups of talent "bunched" together at certain levels of the draft at those positions so as to offer lots of alternate choices. I hope that makes sense.
Happy commenting my friends.
