2015 NFL Draft: Jamon Brown Analysis and Grade w/ Approval Poll

New, comments

The Rams really want to run the ball.

The St. Louis Rams had huge voids to fill on their offensive line and in true Jeff Fisher fashion the St. Louis Rams draft offensive lineman Jamon Brown out of Louisville.

Previously before this pick the Rams drafted a massive run blocker in Rob Havenstein, but the Rams decided that one run blocker is not enough, they needed two big boys down there. Brown has played both tackle positions - but the initialreports are that Brown will go inside and play guard. Brown is kind of a project for the Rams, in that he is a pretty good run blocker, but as a pass protector he is raw.

Here is NFL Network on the Rams new offensive linemen - who they thought would be drafted in the 4 or 5th round.

Intriguing tackle/guard prospect. His mass and athletic limitations are best-suited inside and his quickness off the snap could be an indicator that Brown's best football could be ahead of him. With a wider base and better body control, Brown could become a starting guard or potential tackle in power scheme.

Brown has the potential to be a pretty good offensive linemen for the Rams, and the Rams have mentioned that they want to run the ball alot. Brown might not be able to protect Nick Foles as well as fans would like in year one, but the Rams running backs will love running behind the big guard.

Grade: B-
