    Free Agency:
    Kenny Britt, WR
    - There has been some backlash from fans since we decided to bring him in for a visit, but really a no-lose proposition here.

    Davin Joseph, OG
    - Rams need depth along the the O-line, this signing or another veteran OG makes sense even if it hasn't happened right away.

    Draft Trades:
    Rams trade - no.2 overall pick, 4th round pick
    Falcons trade - no.6 overall pick, 2nd round pick, future 1st round pick

    - A trade down is happening, the only question is with who. In this scenario the Falcons feel like they have to get their franchise pass rusher on defense. They've proven before they aren't afraid to give up a lot for elite players, and Clowney is a truly special prospect that we may not have even seen before. The Rams get to hold onto their streak of multiple firsts heading into 2015 and get an extra 2rd in a particularly deep draft. Can't ask for much more than that for only moving down 4 picks.

    Draft:
    1: Greg Robinson, OT/OG, Auburn
    - Freakishly strong and really athletic as well. Long arms, tree trunks for legs, and a wide base this kid has it all as far as physical makeup goes. A little raw with his footwork and hand placement, but already a dominant player on the toughest level of college football. We move him inside initially which hides his deficiencies in technique and emphasizes his raw power and ability to anchor. Has the potential to be a pro bowl player as a rookie, way more impressive in almost every aspect than hyped up OG Chance Warmack last year.


    1: Eric Ebron, TE, North Carolina
    - Might seem like an odd pick at first glance, but I put a lot of thought into this one. I think Cook and Kendricks are really good TEs at what they do, but both of them are too stiff to be consistent threats at receiver, and Kendricks is going to be a Free Agent after next year. I suppose moreso than what we already have, this is a pick based on drafting an elite prospect that you can mold your offense around and continue to build on what we started last season. When you look at what we did best last year, it was running the ball and play action out of 2/3 TE formations. Ebron has crazy movement skills and fluidity for a guy his size, and ball skills to match, I wouldn't be surprised if he went in the top 10. I'll probably go more in-depth about this pick and why I think it's an option that the Rams are seriously considering later on.


    2: Lamarcus Joyner, S/CB, Florida State
    - A playmaker in every sense of the word, Joyner is going to get passed over way more times than he should because of his size and 40 time. Elite blitzer, elite acceleration, elite range, this guy covers space in a hurry and makes an impact all over the field.

    2: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU
    - Maybe earlier than most would expect us to take a QB, but we need Bradford insurance and the Rams FO see a guy with top 10 talent who really shouldn't be falling this far. Elite arm strength, can put it pretty much anywhere on the field from what I've seen. I haven't really looked at QBs that much this year, but Mettenberger stands out to me when watching the LSU WRs, don't really know why he isn't being talked about more often, despite the injury.


    3: Pierre Desir, CB, Lindenwood
    - Really stood out at the Senior Bowl, talented corner from a small school. Has all the physical tools, and seems like a really good man-coverage CB that we're going to need in Williams' defense.


    5: James White, RB, Wisconsin
    - Zac Stacy insurance, and good competition for Cunningham as the no.2 RB. We've finally got an O-line that can open up some holes, so what we really need right now are RBs with the patience and vision to take advantage of that and then make some guys miss in the open field.

    6: Kevin Pierre-Louis, OLB, Boston College
    - Solid run defender and excellent blitzer. Undersized weakside linebacker, kind of a poor man's Lavonte David. I assume we'll be doing a lot more blitzing under Williams, so I thought it would be important to grab a linebacker that excels in this area. Should be a solid STer from the beginning.

    7: Charles Sawyer, CB, Mississippi
    - Smaller CB, a bit of a project but has solid athleticism and is aggressive in pass coverage. Should be a solid nickelback, but will start his career, like Pierre-Louis, on special teams.

    7: Larry Webster, DE, Bloomsburg
    - Flashed talent at the Shrine game. Undersized for a DE, but a lot further along in build than Sims was as a rookie. Still kind of upset we let Rivers get away, but Webster is a similar kind of talent, imo. Good depth and could play on special teams, but might be fighting an uphill battle to actually make the 53.
