2015 NFL Mock Draft: Consensus Has Rams Going OL Or WR At 10

New, comments

Taking a look at all the recent mock drafts together shows the Rams are likely to go offense with their first pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.

Well, we're one week out from Draft Week. It's a thing because I used upper case letters and that means it's a thing like Texas or Pastrami (don't you dare).

So it's perfect timing for the Monday mock from Dan Kadar over at Mocking the Draft to take 20 of the recent major mocks from around these internets and see what kind of consensus exists for each team. It's a good way to see where the conventional wisdom is for each team as we head into the final stretch:

10. St. Louis Rams: DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville

This is another choice that came as a surprise. I thought for sure an offensive lineman would get a higher percentage. With four different lineman here, it looks like they split the selection. Straight away, Parker would be the top wide receiver on the Rams roster, assuming Nick Foles can get him the ball.

The picks:
35 percent DeVante Parker
15 percent Brandon Scherff
15 percent Amari Cooper
10 percent La’el Collins
10 percent Kevin White
5 percent Andrus Peat
5 percent Cameron Erving
5 percent Ereck Flowers

If anything, the major thing to take away here is that there isn't really any consensus for the Rams outside of the positions mocked. Clearly, the needs on the line and at wide receiver are drawing first. With 60% of the mocks, wide receiver seems to be the lead horse here. Muddling that issue though is the Giants sitting just one pick ahead of the Rams where the consensus is pretty clear with Brandon Scherff headed to New York in 50% of the mocks.

After Scherff at 9, the next offensive linemen come in the late teens. This helps the "TRAID DONN" crowd, and certainly affects the consensus Kadar is searching for here.

Nevertheless, it's a good barometer of where we are as the countdown to the draft nears single digits in the "days" column.
