2018 NFL Mock Draft asks Los Angeles Rams to start forming their CB big board

New, comments

The Rams are surely forming their cornerback big board. They might well have to bring it up in round 1 in late April...

Monday. Mock drafts.

Today’s weekly mock from Mocking the Draft’s Dan Kadar is begging a simple question for the Los Angeles Rams...

How’s that cornerback board looking?

Most mocks to this point have the Rams tied to a cornerback in round 1. Fair enough. But what if the Rams’ target gets snipped well before they pick at 23?

Kadar’s mock has Ohio St. CB Denzel Ward going at #6 to the New York Jets. So for us, the pick is:

23. Los Angeles Rams: Josh Jackson, CB, Iowa

With Ward long gone, the Rams would be fine if they fell back on Jackson. If Trumaine Johnson leaves in free agency, a player like Johnson would be a natural replacement.

More to the point of the question, Kadar has Auburn CB Carlton Davis at #31 and Louisville CB Jaire Alexander at #32. I kind of feel #RamsCBwatch2018 is going to be a thing that grows in the coming weeks and months.

For today though, it’s another mock with another CB for the Rams in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft.
