The first round is over, and thank goodness we finally have an idea of who the Rams wanted. With Greg Robinson, they've found an absolute mauler who has the potential to be something very special on the offensive line. With Aaron Donald at 13, they've found the missing link on the defensive line.
Be Afraid NFC West, be very afraid. The Rams are coming after your quarterbacks.
But it's not over yet, and here are some interesting options that are still available:
Two offensive lineman in the first two rounds? Not Possible. All bets are off though, as Su'a-Filo is a legit first round talent and the combination of Robinson and the UCLA standout on the left side could lock down that side of the line for a decade. How long has it been since the Rams had that much assurance on the offensive line?
Still, with other needs, it's a tough pick to make. Su'a-Filo is ranked 14th on the SB Nation Top 200 Prospect List.
If you talk to the right person, you'd come away thinking the Rams still need a receiver. One of the original 'big three,' Lee is still on the board after a rough final season at USC. Lee has the potential to be something special, but issues with his hands and a long injury list might have scared some teams off.
Could the Rams finally find a capable receiver in him? Debatable, but he certainly has potential. Lee is ranked 29th on the Top 200 List.
Well, wouldn't this be something? If the Rams take Derek Carr in the second round, it might not mean anything, initially. But drafting a QB this high would certainly give Sam Bradford some extra motivation coming into a year where he could easily be released afterward.
Carr isn't perfect, but a season behind Bradford might be just what a prospect needs to be successful. The Rams would likely have to trade up to get him however, so it's a longshot. Carr is the 33rd rated prospect on the Top 200 List.
So much for a lack of first round safeties? The league struck fast to take most of the top names off the table, but there are still options out there for the secondary starved Rams. Joyner is the best left and what he lacks in height, he makes up just about everywhere else.
If the Rams can overlook his size, they could come away with an excellent player. Joyner is ranked 49th on the Top 200 List.
Van Noy (and Jeremiah Attaochu) represent two linebackers who could improve the Rams, but Van Noy is a more complete player at this point. While outside linebacker isn't the strongest need, sometimes it's better to improve your strengths. The Rams can't fill every hole, so why not boost an already boosted front seven?
One can dream...
Van Noy is the 47th ranked player on the SB Nation Top 200 List.
