Rather than the tired old As and Bs, McShay looks at the most intriguing picks and the guys likely to make a big impact in the late rounds.
For McShay, the Rams' impact player is cornerback Janoris Jenkins.
Impact: CB Janoris Jenkins (second) -- The risk-reward gamble is huge with Jenkins and his considerable character baggage, but anyone who saw him shut down the likes of Jeffery, A.J. Green and Julio Jones in 2010 knows just what kind of cover corner Jenkins can be. He's ready to be a starter right now...
Many consider him the best cover corner in the draft. Character issues are usually overblown.
McShay's intriguing player comes from the 2nd round as well, wide receiver Brian Quick, the first player off the board on day two.
Intriguing pick: WR Brian Quick (second) -- How steep will Quick's learning curve be coming from a small school, and can he handle the transition to NFL life both on and off the field? Some feel he could become overwhelmed in that regard, but there's no denying his impressive size and athleticism...
I'll buy it. I still think Isaiah Pead could be more interesting, but the receiver angle sets Quick apart.
