Many weeks ago ramsfan873 and I decided to collaborate on an alternate pick mock draft. We both thought this would be a relatively easy thing to accomplish. Little did we know. I suppose it is difficult enough to create a mock draft just on your own. Combining the thoughts of two mockers into one mock draft turned out to be an arduous task. To top it all off, it was decided that the mock draft would contain multiple trade downs!! In addition, we both fervently believed that the strength and value in this draft lies in rounds 2-4. I already had some grey hair......now I have quite a bit more. This was no problem for my partner in crime, for he is 25 years younger than I am and all full of vim and vigor. Lucky him! I felt as though I would let him down if I didn't get this posted. So here it is!!
This mock draft was revised at least 20 times. The final version was just completed, a day before the draft. Due to the time constraints, please forgive the fact that I did not have the time to include an in-depth analysis, video or rationale. I had the first pick in this mock, and we then alternated picks for the remainder of the draft.
|1.23||Jonathan Cyprien||SS||Florida International|
|2.33||Arthur Brown||LB||Kansas State|
|3.90||Brandon Williams||DT||Missouri Southern State|
|4.102||Le'Veon Bell||RB||Michigan State|
|6.184||Cameron Lawrence||OLB||Mississippi State|
There are three trade downs in this mock draft:
1. The Rams trade #16 to Minnesota for #23, #83 and #102
2. The Rams trade #22 and #113 to Jacksonville for #33 and #64
3. The Rams trade #78 to Denver for #90 and #125
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my new friend, ramsfan873, for joining me in this endeavor. It was a lot of fun. I loved working with him and I hope that we have the chance to do this all again next year! Thanks for reading and hope you approve of what we tried to do here.
