2016 NFL Mock Draft: NFL.com's Lance Zierlein Treads Well With Rams

New, comments

It's a back and forth between QB and the Ole Miss WR for the Rams as we head toward the combine.

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

More mockery out today with NFL.com's Lance Zierlein popping up with his second effort. Top 14:

# Team Pick POS School
1 Tennessee Titans Laremy Tunsil OT Ole Miss
2 Cleveland Browns Jared Goff QB California
3 San Diego Chargers DeForest Buckner DE Oregon
4 Dallas Cowboys Jalen Ramsey CB Florida St.
5 Jacksonville Jaguars Myles Jack OLB UCLA
6 Baltimore Ravens Joey Bosa DE Ohio St.
7 San Francisco 49ers Paxton Lynch QB Memphis
8 Miami Dolphins Ronnie Stanley OT Notre Dame
9 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vernon Hargreaves III CB Florida
10 New York Giants Kevin Dodd DE Clemson
11 Chicago Bears A'Shawn Robinson DT Alabama
12 New Orleans Saints Noah Spence DE/OLB Eastern Kentucky
13 Philadelphia Eagles Carson Wentz QB North Dakota St.
14 Oakland Raiders Jaylon Smith OLB Notre Dame

So with all three major QBs out, there's an obvious fallback for the Rams at 15:

Laquon Treadwell (WR, Ole Miss)

I'm expecting a very pedestrian 40-yard dash time by Treadwell that will open up a round of discussions about his draft value. While I'm not in love with taking a wide receiver in this spot, he's ultra-competitive and steps in immediately to help the offense.

The underwhelming 40-time could certainly be forthcoming, but it shouldn't be a huge draft stock issue. Treadwell was never a burner in college, but the combine is a force in and of itself, so if he does post a "slow" time, it'll be a thing.

In any case, it's another NFL.com mock with the Rams grabbing Treadwell with one week to go before the combine workouts begin.
