Dan Kadar, the head honcho over at Mocking the Draft, has been updating the site position rankings. We'll have position-by-position coverage here as well, but it's worth discussing the updated WR rankings tonight.
The Rams have a deep stable of WRs (especially if they can re-sign Brandon Lloyd), but are sorely lacking a top of the roster WR to help provide a consistent threat for Sam Bradford, especially in 3rd down and red zone situations. There are some enticing options in free agency, but as always, the draft affords teams the chance to re-stock the roster with young, promising talents.
The top 5, Justin Blackmon, Michael Floyd, Kendall Wright, Alshon Jeffrey and Mohamed Sanu in that order, shouldn't be all that surprising. Keep an eye out for Alshon as WRs measure on Friday and work out on Sunday. His frame is going to be closely scrutinized.
Joe Adams, #9 on the list, could be the next speedster taken after Kendall Wright come April, so his 40-yard time is going to be key. And just after Adams at #10 is Brian Quick, a massive WR who had an incredibly successful career at Appalachian St. He didn't start playing football until his senior year in HS, so he's a bit raw - his measurables are going to be key for teams looking for a possession frame.
Speaking of, Dwight Jones at #6 is going to get a lot of scrutiny. He's not the fastest or most athletic wideout, but he uses his size well and attacks the ball in the air.
Two late guys to watch are #18 Marvin Jones who impressed at the Senior Bowl and #20 Eric Page who filled up box scores at Toledo.
