    Notable Departures: Dahl, Well, Finnegan, Saffold (UFA)

    Welcome aboard: Geoff Schwartz, OG, Chiefs & Michael Griffin, FS, Titans (Future cap cut)

    TRADE: St. Louis Rams trade #2 & #75 overall selections in the 2014 NFL Draft to the Atlanta Falcons for the #6, #37, and #68 overall selections in the 2014 NFL Draft & a 2015 1st round selection.

    1-6) Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson (from Falcons)*

    Perhaps, the last thing the Rams need is another young WR to add to the mix of an already underutilized group of targets. But, after this kid (a hands catcher) runs a sub 4.4/40 and shows off that 38” VJ at the combine he's going to be hard for Fisher/Snead to pass on. That is, IF Jake Long’s rehab is on schedule and they still prefer not to use 1st rounders on Olinemen.

    1-13) Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State
    [​IMG]


    This pick seems to have RaShede Hageman written all over it. But, I’m hopeful that the Lions GM passes on the leader of Michigan State’s “No-Fly Zone.” With Greg Williams onboard, dialing up pressures, there may not be a better press coverage fit in the draft.

    DAY TWO

    2-37) David Yankey, OG, Stanford (from Falcons)
    [​IMG]


    Interior OLinemen and 4-3 LBs (especially undersized) typically represent the best value selections in the 2nd round. While he’s not Jonathan Cooper, Yankey is a pretty good pulling guard who has even shown the skills to play OT in a pinch.

    2-44) Kyle Van Noy, LB, BYU
    [​IMG]


    One of the best LBs in the draft class who may be available here due to past alcohol related issues, being slightly overaged, and questionable speed. Nonetheless this kid is a football player. And while he’s mainly played OLB, there is some potential to be a cheaper alternative to Laurinaitis if deemed necessary in the future.

    3-75) A.J. McCarron, QB, Alabama
    [​IMG]


    Can’t say that I’m a big fan or McCarron. But when both Snead and Demoff suggest that the team will select a QB, I have to include one in my mock draft. With that, why not a 3-time national champion with decent size who already knows how to play in a run first, pro-style offense?

    DAY THREE

    4th Round) James Hurst, OT, North Carolina (from Browns)
    [​IMG]

    This might be close to a Barrett Jones red shirt type selection here as this kid broke his leg in the Belk Bowl game and may not be ready to go (strength wise) during the offseason player evaluation process. Once healed Hurst looks as if he can be just as effective as Bengals LT Andrew Whitworth and eventually replace Jake Long.

    4th Round) Deandre Coleman, DT, California
    [​IMG]

    Forced to play and adjust to 3 different defensive coordinators, Coleman is an underrated player. Coleman is very good at two gapping and at 6’5”, 315, has the size that DL Coach Wauffle loves at DT. After a good Senior Bowl week, he could be a steal here.

    5th Round) Trai Turner, OG, LSU*
    [​IMG]
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdqS2RO0rNc#t=281

    Back to the OLine with this selection. Here’s a kid that may have cost himself some money declaring as a 3rd year sophomore. Nevertheless, this strong run blocker was a two year starter at RG for LSU, had 64 knockdown blocks and was named 2nd Team All Sec.

    6th Round) Alden Darby, S, Arizona State
    [​IMG]
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2DscHV8LZfg

    Only 5’10”, but a 1st team All Pac 12 safety who had a good week of East West Shrine Bowl practices and could prove to be good competition for one of the backup spots.

    7th Round) Jordan Najvar, TE, Baylor
    [​IMG]
    http://espn.go.com/video/clip?id=7259271

    Primarily used as a blocker at Baylor whenever he got a chance to see the field, but this 6
    6” 262 pound TE showed that he has receiving skills during the East West Shrine practices.

    7th Round) Trey Millard, FB/RB, Oklahoma (from Colts)
    [​IMG]
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rbv5aihfbrU#t=176

    Everyone’s favorite FB. Millard has the potential to be an even better Peyton Hillis in the NFL and should have declared last year, IMO. Now nursing torn ligaments in his knee he may not even get drafted or be ready for the start of the season unless he recovers as quickly as Benny Cunningham did last year. But, he’s well worthy of this selection even if he has to go on the PUP list.

    Any trade down offer that doesn't involve an extra 2015 1st rounder should be refused if Clowney is still on the board.

    REALLY like picking up J. Hurst in the 4th. He was 1st round talent before the injury and acquitted himself nicely in the season opener against J. Clowney.
