2016 NFL Mock Draft: Is QB-WR-TE Trio In The Card For LA Rams' First Three Rounds?

New, comments

Couch GM Elijah Kim goes three rounds for the Rams trying to grab some gamechangers for the offense.

Mock drafts are running rampant as NFL teams and couch GM's prepare for the heartbreak and misery (for us and the Browns) known as the NFL Draft.

It is truly the one day that every team has a chance to improve, selecting players from college who are projected to help the team, immediately or in the near future.

On this day, I, Notorious Couch GM Elijah Kim, reveal my 2016 NFL Mock Draft for the Rams through three rounds.

With the 15th Overall Pick of the 2016 NFL Draft....

Laquon Treadwell, Wide Receiver, Ole Miss

Treadwell is the perfect value and need pick for the Rams. What Laquon lacks in top end speed (4.6 forty), he more than makes up for it with his ball skills and blocking. He runs good routes for a college receiver and had a very productive career at Ole Miss.

With the 43rd Overall Pick....

Keanu Neal, Safety, Florida

Neal was a two-year starter for the Gators. An interchangeable safety, he has adequate range, provides great thump in run supports, and is an underrated blitzer/playmaker. At 6'1" and 211 pounds, Neal would be a strong presence in the middle of field for the Rams.

With the 45th Overall Pick....

Christian Hackenberg, Quarterback, Penn State

Hackenberg is a big-armed quarterback who played under then PSU head coach and now Houston Texans HC Bill O'Brien his freshman year at Penn State, which happened to be his best statistical season. While there are flashes of potential, there were also long periods of time with Hackenberg seemingly not being a good quarterback. For the Rams, who want to run the football, Hackenberg could be a good fit as a playaction/pro-style quarterback.

With the 76th Overall Pick...

Austin Hooper, Tight End, Stanford

Hooper is an underclassmen tight end prospect from Stanford who has shown the ability to stretch the seams of the defense. With Jared Cook moving onto Green Bay leaving Lance Kendricks and Justice Cunningham being the only tight ends on the roster (Harkey is a fullback pretty much), the Rams pick Hooper as a player who can outproduce his draft spot as he reaches his potential.
