    Free Agency
    Outgoing: Salary cap cuts: Courtland Finnegan, Harvey Dahl, Scott Wells.
    Returning: Rodger Saffold. 4-5 years at $5 million per, $12 million guaranteed.
    Incoming: Soon to be cap cut Titans S Michael Griffin

    1-1) Houston Texans - Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville*
    This assumes the kid puts comes in around 6’2”, and puts on 15 pounds, and the Owner/Head Coach falls in love with him as the face of the Texans franchise.

    1-2) St. Louis Rams - JaDeveon Clowney DE South Carolina*

    No brainer selection, IMO. Minus a blockbuster offer, IF Clowney is still on the board, the Rams should simply make the pick and work him into the rotation. A 4 DE set with (Long, Hayes, Clowney, & Quinn) would be a nightmare for opposing teams on passing downs. Eugene Sims and his 5 sacks in 4 seasons becomes trade bait.

    TRADE: St. Louis Rams trade the #13 & #44 overall selections to the Atlanta Falcons for the #6 overall selection.

    (Got this idea from several Falcons fans on their board desperately hoping the Falcons move back for DT Aaron Donald. The Rams are usually the main team mentioned in such a deal)

    1-6) Greg Robinson, OL, Auburn* (from Falcons)

    Kid starts at LG (ala HOF OTs Odgen/Hinton) while being groomed to eventually replace Jake Long within the next 2-3 seasons. With Robinson and a re-signed Rodger Saffold the Rams should be able to run the football anytime the want if the backs pick the right holes. And the play action game should be vastly improved.

    3-75) Jaylen Watkins, CB, Florida

    Must to the dismay of many, this mock doesn’t net WR Sammy Watkins. But here I keep it in the family with his half-brother. It’s been reported that Watkins (who has pretty good size), turned some heads and was having a pretty good showing in Senior Bowl practices this week prior to going down with an ankle injury.

    TRADE: The Rams swap their 4th and 6th round selections with some team to move up a few spots.

    4th) Andre Williams, RB, Boston College

    Most will hate the trade and the selection. But, IF this kid is still on the board going into day three, I’d hope that the organization would be willing to jump up and nab a perfect fit for a physical run first offense. Zac Stacy insurance here.

    5th) Kevin Norwood, WR, Alabama

    This very underrated 5th year senior has good size, decent speed, a wide catch radius, and can block with the best of them. Pretty good fit for the Rams offense, IMO.

    7th) Conner Shaw, QB, South Carolina

    Shaw doesn’t have the measurables that most teams look for but 24 Tds vs. 1 INT this year isn’t anything to sneeze at either. At the very worst, he could be a nice wildcat option for the team to help open things up from time to time.

    7th) Jordan Tripp, LB, Montana

    Coach Fisher uses his Montana connections to learn more about and nab their top player.
