First Round Mock Draft Scenario; What Should the Rams do with 33, 39, and 65?

What should the Rams do if the first round were to shake out like this?

(1.) Indianapolis Colts- Andrew Luck, QB, Stanford

-People have been saying Griffin could go at this spot, but I just don’t see it.

(2.) Washington Redskins- Robert Griffin III, QB, Baylor

-After giving up a bunch of picks to move up, the Skins grab their franchise QB.

(3.) Minnesota Vikings- Matt Kalil, OT, USC

-The Vikings can plug in Kalil at LT for the next decade.

(4.) Cleveland Browns- Justin Blackmon, WR, Oklahome State

-The Browns have needed receiver help forever now.

(5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Trent Richardson, RB, Alabama

-The Bucs get the stud and 3-down back they have been looking for in T-Rich.

(6.) St. Louis Rams- Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU

-The Rams grab the BPA and now have a great tandem in Finnegan and Claiborne.

(7.) Jacksonville Jaguars- Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina

-After signing Robinson, the Jags address their next most glaring need in Ingram.

(8.) Miami Dolphins- Ryan Tannehill, QB, Texas A&M

-After missing out on Flynn the Dolphins select their next QB in Tannehill.

(9.) Carolina Panthers- Dontari Poe, NT, Memphis

-The winner of this year's combine could come in and start right away for an awful defense.

(10.) Buffalo Bills- Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

-After paying Fitzpatrick last year, the Bills need to get him more weapons.

(11.) Kansas City Chiefs- David DeCastro, OG, Stanford

-This guy is a beast and would step in from day one and be a starter.

(12.) Seattle Seahawks- Luke Kuechly, MLB, Boston College

-The Seahawks fill a need by getting the productive Kuechly.

(13.) Arizona Cardinals- Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa

-The Cardinals need a lot of help on the offensive line so Reiff is their guy.

(14.) Dallas Cowboys- Stephon Gilmore, CB, South Carolina

-After releasing Newman, the Cowboys need to get better in the secondary.

(15.) Philadelphia Eagles- Fletcher Cox, DT, Mississippi State

-The Eagles get a steal as Cox falls to the middle of the first round.

(16.) New York Jets- Courtney Upshaw, DE/OLB, Alabama

-The Jets need to add more pass rushers and Upshaw has great value here.

(17.) Cincinnati Bengals- Kendall Wright, WR, Baylor

-Andy Dalton could use another weapon at his disposal.

(18.) San Diego Chargers- Whitney Mercilus, DE/OLB, Illinois

-The Chargers need more pass rushers. Mercilus fits the bill.

(19.) Chicago Bears- Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina

-The Bears could use another pass rusher to complement Julius Peppers.

(20.) Tennessee Titans- Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

-The Titans continue to upgrade the defensive line with this pick.

(21.) Cincinnati Bengals- Dre Kirkpatrick, CB, Alabama

-Leon Hall suffered a torn Achilles last season so this pick makes lots of sense.

(22.) Cleveland Browns- Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford

-The Browns got Blackmon at 4 and now upgrade the offensive line with Martin.

(23.) Detroit Lions- Janoris Jenkins, CB, North Alabama

-The Lions need help in the secondary and Jenkins is also arguably the BPA.

(24.) Pittsburgh Steelers- Coby Fleener, TE, Stanford

-With Heath Miller regressing, the super athletic Fleener gives Big Ben another weapon.

(25.) Denver Broncos- Cordy Glenn, OG, Georgia

-The Broncos could use an upgrade on the interior of the offensive line with Glenn.

(26.) Houston Texans- Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech

-The Texans finally find someone to take some pressure off of Andre Johnson.

(27.) New England Patriots- Devon Still, DT, Penn State

-The Patriots need to improve on the interior of their defensive line.

(28.) Green Bay Packers- Nick Perry, DE/OLB, USC

-The Packers need someone who can rush the passer opposite of Clay Matthews.

(29.) Baltimore Ravens- Peter Konz, C, Wisconsin

-With Matt Birk getting old, Konz makes lots of sense at this spot.

(30.) San Francisco 49ers- Alshon Jeffery, WR, South Carolina

-The 49ers have showed they are committed to getting more playmakers for Smith.

(31.) New England Patriots- Mark Barron, SS, Alabama

-The Patriots need help at safety after James Sanders and Meriweather were cut last year.

(32.) New York Giants- Mike Adams, OT, Ohio State

-Kareem McKenzie is a FA so the Giants could use a tackle.

In this scenario, which I think could very likely happen, we end up taking the BPA in Morris Claiborne instead of filling a more pressing need. If the first round were to shake out like this which positions/players would you most likely be interested in taking with our next three picks of #33, #39, and #65 with needs at OL, DT, WR, and OLB?
