Great way to get the day started. Rams fans are going to want to get a good look at the offensive lines today. Dismukes would certainly make sense. And while I'm higher than most on Wisconsin's linemen, I'd still suggest they're legit day 3 options. I'd be fine with a late round flyer on G Kyle Costigan too.

Goodyear Cotton Bowl Classic
#8 Michigan St. (10-2) v. #5 Baylor (11-1) - ESPN, 12:30pm
Trae Waynes CB RS Jr. Michigan St. 1st
Shilique Calhoun DE RS Jr. Michigan St. 1st

This would have even more impact, but Baylor DE Shawn Oakman and OT Spencer Drango have both announced they're headed back to Waco in 2015. Both could have been 1st round selections. Obviously the big watch here is Petty. We'll have plenty of QB discussions in the months ahead, and Petty will certainly be a part of them.

Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl
#16 Missouri (10-3) v. #25 Minnesota (8-4) - ABC, 1:00pm
Shane Ray DE RS Jr. Missouri 1st
Markus Golden DE RS Sr. Missouri 3rd-4th
Michael Scherer OLB RS Soph. Missouri 4th-6th
Marcus Murphy RB RS Sr. Missouri 6th-UD
Mitch Morse OT RS Sr. Missouri 6th-UD
Harold Brantley DT RS Soph. Missouri 6th-UD
David Cobb RB Sr. Minnesota 3rd-4th
Maxx Williams TE RS Soph. Minnesota 3rd-5th
Theiren Cochran DE RS Jr. Minnesota 5th-7th
Cameron Botticelli DT RS Sr. Minnesota 6th-UD

Not a huge draft watch, but it's a last shot to get in some Shane Ray viewing. He should be off the board by the time the Rams draft at 10.
