Thursday Night Football (+ College!) Open Thread

Jonathan Ferrey

Three games, one from the NFL, two in college, have obvious potential impacts for the Rams in the 2014 NFL Draft.

Rarely do you have a night like tonight in which you have three games that so obviously have the potential to impact the Rams' draft fortunes five months out.

Tonight's one of those nights.

On the NFL's side, RGIII leads the Washington Redskins into Minneapolis to face the Minnesota Vikings. Lest you need to be reminded, the Rams own the Skins' 1st round pick. With Washington sitting at 3-5, it looks like we could be in the mix for a top 10 pick via Washington. Yay.

On the college side, you've got four teams all in the top 10 pairing off tonight with two premier offenses in play.

#10 Oklahoma is is in Waco to face off against #6 Baylor's offense that ranks first in the nation in passing yards and points per game (being 7th in rushing yards per game gives you a sense of the insanity that is Baylor HC Art Briles' offensive system). And oh by the way, the Bears are 6th in the nation in points allowed. Uh...Boomer you should have played this game Sooner?

Later on, #3 Oregon heads to northern Cali to see #5 Stanford with the Ducks' #2 offense in both rushing yards and points per game. Here's your master list of prospects by my notes:

Name POS School Yr. #
Cyril Richardson G Baylor RS Sr. 68
Lache Seastrunk RB Baylor RS Jr. 25
Ahmad Dixon SS Baylor Sr. 6
Tevin Reese WR Baylor RS Sr. 16
Jordan Najvar TE Baylor RS Sr. 18
Aaron Colvin CB OU Sr. 14
Jalen Saunders WR OU Sr. 8
Gabe Ikard C OU RS Sr. 64
Damien Williams RB OU Sr. 26
Corey Nelson (inj) OLB OU Sr. 7
Trey Millard (inj nooooooooooooooooo) FB/TE/OW/? OU Sr. 33

(TO BE UPDATED SHORTLY FOR THE LATE GAME)

Solid. And that's just the draftable guys I have slotted through round 7. No UDFAs, no underclassmen....so you know there's plenty there.

It's a great Thursday to take in some college ball and check in on the Rams 1b pick.

Leggo.
