2015 NFL Draft: Potential Second Round Choices

New, comments
Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

The 2015 NFL Draft is less than a week away, and there has been lots of discussion on what the St. Louis Rams should do with their 10th selection in the draft.  So it's about time that we looked deeper in the draft and at players that could be there for the Rams in the second round.

A couple of weeks ago we looked at 10 players that the Rams could draft at 10, now let's look at 10 players that the Rams could draft at 41.

Brett Hundley: Hundley is one of those athletes that just so happens to play football. Hundley has the athleticism that teams love in quarterbacks, but then there's also the bad side of Hundley. While he does have the athleticism, he has below average pocket awareness and his accuracy comes as goes - as a player he reminds me of Colin Kaepernick.

Dorial Green-Beckham: There is a good chance that the former Missouri Tiger and Oklahoma Sooner will be drafted in the first round. Based on his play he should be up there with Amari Cooper and Kevin White, however with the red flags and him missing a season of football it's hard to imagine him selected in the first round. Current head coach Jeff Fisher has never been against drafting players with questionable past, so if he is available the Rams could have an interesting dilemma.

A.J. Cann: Cann is probably the best pure guard available in the draft. He does have some issues with pass protection, but he is a good run blocker. The Rams could do worse than drafting a player that should be a solid starter for his career and  with a team that has the offensive line needs that the Rams have, they should be thrilled to draft a solid player on the line.

Benardrick McKinney: McKinney is an interesting option for the St. Louis Rams, and he has been rumored to be a player that the Rams love. As a player he would add another dose of toughness that the Rams need out of their linebackers. McKinney is one of those old school linebackers that can take on blockers and attack ball carriers.

Bryce Petty: Petty is commonly refeered to as the third best quarterback in the draft, granted there is a huge gap between him and Marcus Mariota who is currently the second best. Petty can extend plays but he does not usually make plays when he extends. His big thing is that he will have to get used to playing in a complex system where he would have to make more than one read.

Nelson Algohor: Algohor is one of those players that could be drafted in the late first round, but if he is there when the Rams pick it would be hard for the Rams not to draft him. As a route runner he is second only to first round pick Amari Cooper.

Laken Tomlinson: Is a solid pure guard, he does not havet the athleticism to be a great pulling guard. However he usually stands his ground when it comes to pass blocking and he looks like he could develop into a good run blocker. The Rams would hope that he is available in the third round, but sometimes you have to grab a player earlier.

Jake Fisher: Fisher is the best offensive tackle available in the second round. He does almost everything that you want from an offensive tackle, he mirrors defends well and he can develop into a good pass blocker and run blocker, there are some that think he could be a left tackle in the pros. However he was one of the most penalized tackles over the last two seasons. In the video he is the left tackle number 75.

Cameron Erving: There is a great chance that Erving could be drafted in the first round, but there is also a chance that Erving could fall. Interior offensive linemen are not always valued early in the draft, so if the Rams can somehow draft the current center who has experience at left tackle the pick would be a no brainer.

P.J. Williams: The Rams have decisions to make on Trumaine Johnson and Janoris Jenkins after this upcoming season. Williams is a corner that would fit a physical defense, although he is not the best zone-corner. There are scouts that think Williams will be better suited at safety.

Which of these players would you draft in the second round?
