    If you were enamoured with height yes. LOL but if you were an NFL talent evaluator you'd see Watkins for the stud he is.

    It's not the highlight plays I worry about, there's no denying he can make some really nice plays.

    I wonder if all the receivers not named Sammy Watkins in this years draft realize how much they suck.

    If they did they'd probably just skip the draft altogether and put those communications degrees to work for them.

    I wouldn't assume a receiver is plug and play in the NFL. That's why I would not draft Watkins over Clowney.

    Still, I wouldn't be pissed.

    Until we played Clowney and lost Sam again for the season.

    Man Clowney against whoever is playing LT for us in game 1 now that would be scary.

    You're going to need more than a rookie LT.

    I thought we'd have a 2nd year player, all be it an undrafted second year player but still.

    If he's better than Julio than he needs to be the pick, period. That's where my doubts begin.

    Maybe the Rams should go ahead and draft Clowney and play him at DE and LT.
    You know, bring back the days of the two-way player.

    With all of his upside, I see absolutely no reason it shouldn't work.

    Hilarious! Love the Zach Galifianakis reference as well. We Rams fans need some levity. Especially now that we're mashing our teeth about ridiculous, hypothetical topics that have zero basis in reality. :D

    Think some of you guys are being a bit cruel here. Sammy Watkins seems like a pretty great talented WR and I can understand why he's getting a lot of hype. When watching him, he does seem pretty fast with the pads on (I was a bit disappointed with the 40 time, but I think he's faster then a 4.42 considering he seemed to out run a lot of defenders on the field. Idk if I saw many DB's catching up to Watkins once he reached full speed, pretty impressive!). Great hands, fights for the ball, quickness seems pretty good, and he seems to WANT it. I can also see comparisons to Jones talent wise, nothing wrong with Watkins being a bit better or worse, both seem to be on similar level all the way around. Let's not get carried away with Jones being way superior just because he's beasted the NFL. As a prospect, he had his flaws but he's surely has worked on them. Only think I think Jones really has on Watkins is height, which ehhh it's important, but not the end of the world for Watkins lol.

    I'd welcome Watkins to the Rams (even though I think we should look consider other options based on the team needs), he's very talented and he seems to deserve the hype he's getting. Hard worker, very very well rounded, and he could be that outside WR we've been looking for. Austin playing slot/outside (from time to time) with Watkins, looks very nice. Watkins being a bit big for his size too helps, hopefully he can go over the middle of the field and make some plays.

    Well if this is a deeper draft than the year Jones came out and one of the deepest WR prospects for a draft and Sammy is leading that, hard to think that he's not better than Jones and on Greens level.

    Deeper draft just means there are more talented players not that the guys at the top are necessarily better

    This is a deep WR draft. Why? Not that there is just potential but an entire hand full of "Plug-n-play" guys. Watkins, Evans, Beckham, Mathews, Robinson and even Lee and Landry fit the bill. But as always, WRs are one of the bigger risks come draft time. Often times, their college game doesn't quite translate at first and more times than not takes two to three seasons to become a #1 if that's what they are destined to be. And there's been exceptions as of late in Calvin Johnson, AJ Green, Julio Jones etc. but it's not the norm.
