1:2. Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo
6'3", 251 lbs.
Though OLB isn't our biggest need, it is still a need. And with Mack sittin at #2, would be hard to pass up considering he is probably the 2nd best player in this draft. You can line him up on strong side linebacker no problem. And if you want him to rush the passer, send JoLonn in to cover his spot and move Long into DT. A great start to the draft.
1:13. Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, FS, Alabama
6'1", 208 lbs.
Forgive me for making the most generic pick out there, but it is that way for a reaon. The Rams desperately need a FS, and he is the best one in the class. I know a lot of fans aren't fond of this pick, but he will do just fine under Gregg Williams and will look good next to T.J. McDonald for years to come. Wanted to take Aaron Donald here, but I don't think he will make it this far.
2:44. Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi State
6'4", 340 lbs.
Wanted to take David Yankey here, but I think he will be gone by this time. Jackson will do just fine though. The Rams need help on the offensive line, and here they get it. He can play LG and will do just fine as a key piece to help build our O-Line of the future, along with Saffold and Jones.
3:75. Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood
6'2", 206 lbs.
The reason I am okay with taking HaHa at 13 is because I believe we can wait to get a corner. Their are a lot of underrated ones in this draft. It came down to Desir or Gaines for me, and Desir gets the nod from me. If anyone should have intel on this kid, it should be the Rams, he is in their own backyard. I'm sure they have seen his talent and I think this will be a great pick.
4:110. Aaron Murray, QB, Georgia
6'1" 208 lbs.
Not my first choice at a backup QB (Tom Savage is my 1st but I think he will be gone) but Murray has put together a winning pedigree at Georgia and would do just fine in a backup role for the Rams.
5:153. James Hurst, OT, North Carolina
6'7" 300 lbs.
He needs to bulk up a bit but isn't a bad pick here. Boudreau does a great job of finding late round gems and he might have one here.
6:188. L'Damian Washington, WR, Missouri
6'4", 200 lbs.
Though he needs to bulk up some, he is a big target and put up great numbers against SEC talent. Make take a year or two, but this pick very well could be a steal.
6:214. Deandre Coleman, DT, Cal
6'5", 315 lbs.
7:226.Devon Kennard, OLB, USC
6'3", 250 lbs.
7:249. Hakeem Smith, SS, Louisville
6'0", 194 lbs.
7:250. Shaquelle Evans, WR, UCLA
6'1", 213 lbs
