2013 NFL mock draft: Guest picks

USA TODAY Sports

I represented the Rams in a mock draft for CBS Sports recently. Hope you like the picks.

If you're not sick of mock drafts yet, well, I don't know if you'll ever be. I do have to point out this one because the good people at CBS Sports asked me to participate with a string of other NFL beat folks for a mock draft. Obviously, I represented the St. Louis Rams.

With the first pick, the 16th overall, I went with Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro. There's been some question just how interested the Rams are in Vaccaro since they haven't had any pre-draft visits with him. It's a viable question, but Vaccaro comes with far fewer question marks than some prospects, especially at positions like wide receiver.

For the explanation of the pick you can watch the video below.

For the 22nd pick, I found our receiver, DeAndre Hopkins out of Clemson. Austin was gone before the Rams could snatch him up in this draft. That probably is a likely outcome this week as it is. Anyway, here's my rationale for taking Hopkins.
