WR Justin Hunter, Tenn 6'4 205
Hunter is a talented wide receiver with the intangibles to be a complete NFL receiver. A long limbed, athletic, deep threat with great hands, Hunter can play inside and out. This type of versatility allows for favorable matchups. His leaping ability and length, gives Hunter an edge on jump balls even when being double covered.
Hunter tore an ACL during the third game of the 2011 season. Since then, he has worked out diligently to re-hab his injury. The Vols seem to think that Hunter is ready to go for 2012. If his knee checks out, Hunter could line up on the other side of Brian Quick, giving The Rams a big pair of wideouts with which to threaten defenses.
DE Devin Taylor, South Carolina 6'6 270
In 2011 Taylor was productive in rotation with Melvin Ingram and Jadeveon Clowney: 41 Tkl's, 6 Sacks, 1 INT, 1 TD. The long armed and athletic defensive end, is quick and versatile. He is effective dropping in coverage when called upon. Taylor effects the offense with his rush quickness and long arms, which he uses well to impede the QB's vision and knock down passes. Taylor uses his long arms well to fend off blockers who attempt to get in his chest. Taylor impacts the run game with his speed and power. The skills are there. Taylor does need to refine his technique, which is still raw but improving.
In an earlier post, I did a Ram's mock draft for 2013. I traded one of the first round selections for additional picks. If The Rams decide to keep both picks, Hunter and Taylor would be solid selections IMO. Adding another WR with the size and speed of Hunter, would make the offense quite potent.
Devin Taylor is a versatile defender who can drop into coverage as a defensive lineman, and do so effectively. Using him in rotation to start, could add another dimension to the pass rush. Fisher could find a way to use Taylor's skill-set to create mismatches.
