    Know way do the Rams go defense with both 1st round picks. In fact it is much more likely that the Rams go offense both 1st rounders.

    Beyond terrible.

    Saffold will probably sign with whomever pays him the most $$$ leaving the rams OL in shambles.

    Im so tired of seeing the rams OL suck and unable to stay healthy.

    My mock if Saffold walks;

    Trade down from #2 and #13 then go OT/OG Mathews, OG Yankey, CB Varret, WR Moncrief, OT/OG Mewhort

    5 picks in the top 50. Quality and quantity added to the roster.
    Matthew's and Mewhort have experience playing both OT/OG in college. A lot of versatility added to the OL to make up for losing Saffold

    Although I'd prefer a scenario in which we trade down, if we stay where we are I like it; we can address the OL in rounds two and three and via free agency.

    I also like the fact that a professional "expert" came up with exactly the same first round picks as a drunk bloke in an English pub ten days earlier.

    Why? These are solid picks that fit the Ram system and most likely would not shock me if they go in this direction with most likely a trade down, but he did not do a mock with a ton of trades which was actually refreshing!
