My Thoughts on Day 1 of Rams' Draft


First off, I'm really excited about the players we drafted. Austin and Ogletree were my favorite players this year. Even though I agreed with a few posters (Tampa_Ram) that I was hoping we didn't trade up for Austin. I'm still happy we got him. Now on to the picks...

Tavon Austin: Adds so much to our offense and special teams. The last few weeks heading into the draft I started to lean away from wanting to draft Austin even though he was one of my favorite players. He gives Bradford an electrifying weapon that he hasn't had yet in his pro career. I think we all will get over the Amendola loss quickly. I view Austin as the top WR in the draft, although I feel some other WR's have higher upside. I kind of cringed of the thought that we gave up our 2nd rounder, but I quickly got over it. Wish we stayed at 16 and drafted him there, but I still like this pick a lot. I'm very excited to see Austin work his magic in a RAMS uniform.

Alec Ogletree: My favorite player in the draft. Love his upside. Wanted him at 16 or 22 and we got him at 30!? That's a steal in my mind. Adding him to our front 7 is just insane. Exactly the player we need to cover sideline to sideline with the QB's in our division and also his coverage against TE's. After trading up to 8 and losing some picks, I was glad we traded down and acquired more picks back even though we have no 2nd rounder. I'm not worried about his character concerns at all. Man am I loving this draft so far and it's not even over yet. I don't think I've ever felt this excited about a draft before on Day 1.

On to day 2, what I want to happen:

I hope we draft my other favorite player in Bacarri Rambo. Fills a huge need, and is a playmaker. Also wonder if Snead/Fisher will trade back up into the 2nd round and get a guy who falls into the late 2nd. Players I would trade up for: Cyprien, Hunter, or Allen (can't think of any other players right now).

I wouldn't mind if the Rams took Lattimore with one of the 3rds either. If (big if) he returns to full health, he's a steal in the 3rd or any other round after that. Very excited to see what else we add to this team. It's already a great draft for me.

Go Rams!! Welcome to Rams Nation Tavon Austin and Alec Ogletree!!

P.S. Sorry if there's any errors, I'm tired. I wanted to edit this post better and add pictures and all that good stuff. But I did this from my phone...
