In a recent segment on NFL Network, draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah predicted the first three draft picks for the Rams in this year’s draft.

With their first selection in the second round (No. 57), he has the Rams selecting former North Dakota State and LSU linebacker Jabril Cox. A two-time All-American at the FCS level before moving on to LSU in his final collegiate season, Cox is one of the more rangy backers in this draft. He offers great athleticism and had a phenomenal showing at the Reese’s Senior Bowl earlier this year where he crushed one-on-one coverage drills against tight ends and running backs.

The Rams then select offensive tackle D’Ante Smith out of Eastern Carolina. Another Senior Bowl participant, Smith showed great intensity and excellent hand usage in all week long. Opposing defensive lineman loathed lining up across from him because they knew he would be fighting like hell to put them in the dirt every rep.

Lastly, at pick No. 103, Jeremiah gave the Rams Texas defensive lineman Ta’Quan Graham. At 6’4 and 293 pounds, Graham offers the Rams some inside/outside versatility and would help replace long-time tackle, Michael Brockers.

What do you all think of the picks by DJ? Yay or nay on this lot?
