    It has to be Matthews. He's all but guaranteed to be at least an All-Pro type left tackle (barring injury, of course), he's easily one of the best players in this draft and is - without a shadow of a doubt - the best offensive lineman prospect in this draft. Clowney has issues off-the-field and with his motivation, and Watkins is arguably not even the best receiver in this year's class (if Evans and Benjamin have anything to say about it, that is).

    If Long was healthy, I'd go with Clowney.

    Matthews if all three are there. Watkins if Matthews is gone.

    My dream scenario is to try to drop back, but stay in the top 5 and pick up an extra second rounder, still get Matthews, and then pick up Ha Ha with our true pick.

    I hope we don't change our plans because of the injury to Long. I wouldn't want to draft Matthews just because Long is hurt and miss out on Clowney. I think we can get an offensive tackle prospect with another pick - possibly our second (Taylor Lewan maybe).

    Of the 3 i'd take Clowney at this point. That could change. I'd rather trade down for a package of less spectacular picks - something like #26, #40, #50, #78, & next year's 1st. I don't see any way to make that happen regardless of the chart values.

    I think I'd take Barr. He would stay in on 3rd down since he's a great pass rushing LB. The front 7 would be lights out.

    Only if forced would I take any of them but of the three I'd take Matthews.

    I have to take a couple of naps every day to rest my eye muscles so I'm never really sleepy and up at all hours.

    This is the best play in my opinion. OL and defense. This is the way of the West and it's looking pretty successful to me. Solidify that oline and defensive backfield.

    I guess Matthews, just due to the situations with Long and Saffold, but I'd much rather prefer Evans over Watkins at WR. I could warm up to Clowney also.

    If there are no good trade down offers, Clowney. We'll regret it if we pass on arguably the best DL prospect of the last decade.(Suh and Mario are the only ones that compare)

    Mathews... the bloodlines are undeniable.

    Safe pick. Locks down a spot on the oline for many-many years.

    Beg your pardon sir, but we already HAVE the best DE in the game. :juiced: Just curious, and I know Clowney has a ton of potential, but where would you line him up? If you saw my mock draft, you would see that I had the Rams taking 2 OLs in the first rd, haha. Make the OL an area of strength and let Sam and his new running game do WORK on some suckers next year.

    Yep as time goes by the boring selection of a OT like Mathews is much safer than the selection of Jadeveon. I do like Jadeveon a bunch too. My preference was not up there. I would prefer a big trade down or multiple trade downs myself. I have been in the corner with Jadeveon since I began to think about the possibility of the Rams having a top pick. I think he will be better than Rob Quinn.

    But, a very but with "keeping up with the situation" in assessing all elements involved with this pick.....#1-with an seriously present injured OL of 3 of its starters (Long/Wells/Dahl) #2-add to the fact that this OL is also frequently/repeatedly injured (add Saffold's name to the other three starters) & #3-then add the team most important player to that list (Sam Bradford now 3 out of the last five!) #4-add in the fact that four current starters will enter free agency in March....#5-Finally you would have to insert the amount of cap space involved with all the names mentioned above......now you see the full off season Nightmare Offensive Line picture in 2014....then selecting a DE instead...not sure I would come close to regretting on Jadeveon too much jrry32 & you know I am with you on most all your Jadeveon posts. Maybe Snead & Fisher will resolve all those things above by the first week of May & I can just pick who I want without any other things clouding up my one brain cell.
