The Math does not Support the Idea that the Rams will Draft Sammy Watkins

A little back of the napkin math here TSTers. I extrapolated these numbers from both league and Ram averages.

Estimated Number of Rams Offensive Snaps in 2014: 1,050

Estimated Pass Percentage: 57 Percent

Estimated Run Percentage: 43 Percent

Estimated Number of Pass Plays: 599

Estimated Number of Run Plays: 451

Estimated Number of Passes to Tight End: 120

Estimated Number of Throw Away Passes and QB Runs: 65

Estimated Number of Hits While Throwing and Batted Passes: 17

Estimated Number of QB Sacks: 30

Estimated Throws to a Running Back: 50

Estimated Throws to Tavon Austin: 112 (7 per game)

Total Number of Available Passes to be distributed to other receivers - Givens, Bailey, Quick, and Pettis: 204. 12.7 Per game…about 3 targets per game per receiver.

After conducting this quick analysis I would be shocked if the Rams spend a high draft pick on a wide receiver as we do not have the touches available. The only offensive weapons I can fathom the Rams possibly adding in the first round are Ebron at 13 or Benjamin late 1st after trade down. Both of these athletic players have issues with consistency and drops. If Ebron is still available at 13, I could see us trading back with the Jets for their first pick in the third round so we can draft a guard.
