Huh.

Well, here’s a way to brighten your day.

Over at NFL.com, Peter Schrager has a new mock up that has an unusual spin on things for the Los Angeles Rams.

Let’s just get to it.

#31.) Penn State Nittany Lions RB Miles Sanders
Sanders isn’t getting the same pre-draft buzz as other running backs in this class, but his combine performance turned heads around the league. His pass-catching ability -- SEE: the Indiana game, when he hauled in six catches for 54 yards -- helps him. Los Angeles will look to add a complement (with the ability to catch passes out of the backfield) for Todd Gurley at some point in this draft.

I didn’t like the Todd Gurley pick in 2015. You can imagine how I feel about this one.

Credit to Schrager for the courage though. It’s certainly an unusual mock pick.

I am now going to go for a walk.
