And for the Rams:
La'el Collins (OT, LSU)
An offensive lineman has been the consistent choice for the Rams at No. 10, and what they’ve done in free agency doesn’t change that notion. Starting right tackle Joe Barksdale is still out there. The Rams want him back, but is he a better player than Collins? Not really. Collins has the advantage because he’s a stronger blocker with just as good footwork.
I talked Collins, and a whole heap of other linemen, with Kadar on last week's episode of Turf Show Radio. He's had us pegged to him pretty much since mock season opened, so no surprises here. No condemnation as well. The real key is that the Rams are in a draft scenario threesome at 10:
- Take an offensive lineman
- Take a wide receiver
- Trade down
The problem is that those are predictable, understandable outcomes. The Rams haven't really done predictable in early draft moves under Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher and General Manager Les Snead. So while we've settled into the conventional wisdom with a month and a half to the draft, don't get too attached to the above triumvirate.
If we know anything, it's that Fisher and Snead a won't.
