    So here it is folks, my final mock. I know you have all been waiting and been looking forward to
    this more than the new Star Wars coming out.

    This is a combo mock, in that I am choosing players the Rams have shown interest in, well most of
    them, And players I like.

    Well might as well get this started, so lets begin!!

    Trades!!! Yes, there are going to be trades, I always mock trades because it is just more fun to do
    so and mold the draft how I want it!! I used the Trade Value Chart to determine the compensation.

    Trade #1
    Rams trade #2 to Lions(Lions select Watkins)
    Receive - #10, #45, #189 and future 1st and 3rd

    future 1st-580
    future 3rd-112

    Trade #2
    Rams trade #13 and swap 2nd rounders(44 to 47=30 points) with Cowboys(Cowboys select Clinton-Dix)
    Receive - #16 and #78


    Trade #3
    Rams trade #45, #78 and #153 Saints
    Receive #27


    Trade #4
    Rams trade #188, #189 and #226 to Giants


    *For future picks I used the first pick in the following round for the points. So the future first
    rounder was worth what the #33 pick is worth. a future second would be worth the first pick of the
    3rd round etc.

    After the trades the draft pick positions look like this:


    Well lets get to the picks and see what I did with them!!!!

    Aaron Donald
    Defensive Tackle
    6'1 285 lbs
    32 5/8 arms, 9 7/8 hands

    2010 - 8 solo tackles, 11 total, 3 tackles for loss, 2 sacks. 2 pbu's
    2011 - 22 solo tackles, 47 total, 16 tackles for loss, 11 sacks. 4 pbu's, 1 FF
    2012 - 42 solo tackles, 64 total, 18.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, 2 pbu's, 1 FF
    2013 - 43 solo tackles, 59 total, 28.5 tackles for loss, 11 sacks, 3 pbu's, 4 FF

    Short, scrappy, instinctive, highly productive defensive penetrator who does not look the part, but
    inspires confidence he can be an exception to the rule. Is the type you root for and has the
    first-step quickness, athleticism and motor to emerge as a havoc-wreaking three-technique in a
    fast-flowing 4-3 scheme. With Long, Brockers, Donald and Quinn, no QB will feel safe. Donald is
    amazingly quick off the snap and closes hard and fast. Fearsome foursome 2.0.

    Calvin Pryor
    Free Safety
    5'11 207lbs
    31 3/8 arms, 9 1/8 hands

    2011 - 31 solo tackles, 43 total, 3 tackles for loss, 1 sack. 2 ints, 7 pbu's, 2 FF
    2012 - 52 solo tackles, 100 total, 2.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack. 2 ints, 7 pbu's, 5 FF
    2013 - 54 solo tackles, 75 total, 5.5 tackles for loss, 3 ints, 4 pbu's, 2 FF

    As many know, I have been high on Pryor for a long long long while now and I am not backing down. Perhaps the most explosive hitter in this year's crop of safeties, Pryor is a big, physical hammer
    in the run game, bringing the ability to intimidate and erase. Factor in his instincts and range
    and Pryor has the ability to start as a rookie. Has the power to come down against the run and the
    range to play center field. Some doubt he can be a center fielder, but I believe he can be. Wide receivers will fear trying to catchanything deep with him around. In 3 straight games, took players out of the game. Looks like Harvinwill be missing some more games. Can call McD and Pryor the Smash prothers, because they are going to bring a world of hurt to opposing teams.

    Jason Verrett
    5'9 189lbs
    30 5/8 arms, 9 1/4 hands
    4.38 40-yard dash, 1.47 10 yd split, 39' vert, 10'8 broad jump, 6.69 3-cone, 4.00 shuttle

    2011 - 40 solo tackles, 58 total, 1.5 tackles for loss. 1 int, 5 pbu's
    2012 - 46 solo tackles, 63 total, 5 tackles for loss, 6 ints, 22 pbu's
    2013 - 31 solo tackles, 39 total, 3.5 tackles for loss, 1 sack, 2 ints, 14 pbu's, 1 FF

    Say hello to our new Nickle/slot CB. Yes he isn't the tallest, but he is quick and explosive with

    good eyes, footwork and anticipation. If he was a few inches taller would be in contention to be

    the top CB selected. Great in man coverage and is very aggressive and physical.

    Gabe Jackson
    Offensive Guard
    Mississippi State
    6'3 1/4 336lbs
    33 3/4 arms, 10' hands
    5.51 40-yard dash, 1.81 10 yd split, 30 bench, 29' vert, 9' broad jump, 8.25 cone, 4.78 shuttle

    Big, thickly built, relatively nuanced blocker who brings a steadying presence to the interior
    offensive line. Dependability and effectiveness blocking for pass and run combined with sterling
    intangibles, including football intelligence, make him capable of starting as a rookie and holding
    down a position for years to come. Jackson is a prospect who evaluators will get fired up when
    watching on tape because he has good feet and can be completely dominating in a violent fashion.
    Mississippi State ran man-power concepts in 2013 behind Jackson that made him look like an
    unstoppable bulldozer at times. Rams will plug him in at LG and not worry about that position for

    Antonio Richardson
    Offensive Tackle
    6'6 336lbs
    35' arms, 10 1/4 hands
    5.30 40-yard dash, 1.81 10-yd split, 36 bench, 24.5 vert

    A big, strong, athletic college left tackle, Richardson is agile enough to protect the blind side
    if he learns to become a better hand technician. Long armed with outstanding overall size and mass
    to cover up defenders in the run game and generate a push. Good strength to anchor vs. power and
    possesses enough brute strength to hold his ground even when he locks his legs. Is not easily moved
    and can position-sustain. Bends fairly well for as big as he is and is agile enough to handle
    speed. Coach B will refine Richardson into a starter quality tackle for use in case of injury or in
    the future if we let Long go or let Barks walk. Has all the physical tools you want in a tackle.

    Aaron Murray
    6'1 207lbs
    30 5/8 arms, 9 1/8 hands

    2010 - 61.1%, 3,049 passing yards, 8.9 Y/A, 24 tds, 8 ints. 167 rush yards, 4 rushing tds
    2011 - 59.1%, 3,149 passing yards, 7.8 Y/A, 35 tds, 14 ints. 111 rushing yards, 2 tds
    2012 - 64.5%, 3,893 passing yards, 10.1 Y/A, 36 tds, 10 ints. -68 rushing yards, 3 tds
    2013 - 64.2%, 2,794 passing yards, 8.7 Y/A, 24 tds, 8 ints. 162 rushing yards, 7 tds(DNP last two


    Has a quick release and is light enough on his feet to escape the first wave and make some plays on
    the move. Solid decision-maker -- takes what the defense gives him. Fine short-to-intermediate
    accuracy. Good intangibles. Encouraging team leader with a likeable personality. Leads by example.
    Serves well as the face of the program. Outstanding work ethic. Is very intelligent and football
    smart. Experienced, four-year starter in the SEC. Like our own Starter Bradford, Murray is still recovering from a torn ACL. Is coming along good and was able to do some throws and work at his pro-day. Will be a good back up with potential starter quality down the road.

    *I actually prefer other quarterbacks but the Rams have shown a lot of interest in Murray so he is the choice, plus his girlfriend is hot...

    Isaiah Crowell
    Running Back
    Georgia/Alabama State
    5'11 224lbs
    31 3/8 arms, 9 1/4 hands
    4.57 40-yard dash, 1.55 10-yd dash, 38' vert, 9'9 broad jump

    2011 - 850 rushing yards, 5 tds. 8 receptions, 59 yards, 1 td
    2012 - 842 rushing yards, 15 tds. 11 receptions, 95 yards
    2013 - 1121 rushing yards, 15 tds. 7 receptions, 27 yards

    Fisher and Snead do it again. Trading up with late round picks to grab a guy they want. We all know
    of Crowells story, highly touted recruit who went to Geaorgia, then got kicked off and transfered
    to Alabama State. Has kept his nose clean since. Islooked upon as one of the best running backs in
    the draft and only falls because of his major off the field concerns. Crowell does need some work, but he won't be the workhorse and will have some time to hone his craft. Wasn't used much in the passing game but has shown to have adequate hands from the small sample size.

    Jonathan Dowling
    Western Kentucky
    6'3 190lbs
    33 1/8 arms, 9 1/4 hands
    4.50 40-yd dash, 33.5 vert, 9'8 broad jump, 7.04 3-cone, 4.24 shuttle

    2012 - 40 solo tackles, 68 total, 2.5 for loss. 6 ints, 1 td, 13 pbu's, 2 FF
    2013 - 55 solo tackles, 67 total, 1 for loss. 3 ints, 7 pbu's, 6 FF

    Another prospect who got kicked out of a major college powerhouse after screwing up. Was kicked out
    of Florida and had to transfer to Western Kentucky. Tall and lamy, fast and hard hitting. Dowling split time at cornerback and Safety during his college career but looks best suited for a cornerback role. Nice developmental project who has skills to succeed, and if he can mentally mature could be a steal.

    Andrew Jackson
    Inside Linebacker
    Western Kentucky
    6'1 254lbs
    32 1/2 arms, 9 1/2 hands

    2011 - 41 solo tackles, 109 total, 17 for loss, 3.5 sacks. 1 Int, 2 Pbu's, 1 FF
    2012 - 78 solo tackles, 122 total, 16.5 for loss, 2 sacks. 1 pbu, 4 FF
    2013 - 56 solo tackles, 96 total, 8.5 for loss, 1 sack. 2 pbu's

    Yup, I just double dipped into Western Kentucky. There is really nothing behind JLau in terms o
    depth, so the Rams decide to get some insurance. Jackson is a stout, physical, downhill thumper. He
    is intense and very competitive.

    Kevin Graf
    Offensive Tackle
    6'6 309lbs

    O-line depth. Thats about it.

    Tyler Starr
    Outside Linebacker
    South Dakota
    6'4 250lbs
    32 1/2 arms, 9 1/2 hands
    4.95 40-yd dash, 1.65 split, 32' vert, 9'8 broad jump, 6.64 3-cone, 4.15 shuttle

    2010 - no stats
    2011 - 51 tackles, 19 for loss, 14 sacks. 1 pbu's, 7 FF
    2012 - 74 tackles, 7 for loss, 4 sacks, 2 pbu's, 2 FF
    2013 - 71 tackles, 15 for loss, 9 sacks, 1 int, 5 pbu's, 4 FF

    Lead all Linebackers at the combine in the 3-cone drill. Productive small school player. Has good size and could be a nice developmental piece. Very good instincts. And has great hair!!

    UDFA's that I would like the Rams to bring in:
    Marcus Williams CB, NDSU
    Trey Burton FB/TE/WR, Florida
    Dexter Mcdougle CB, Maryland
    Qua Cox CB, Jackson State
    Dustin Vaughan QB, West Texas A&M
    Chris Boyd WR, Vanderbilt
    Pierre Warren FS, Jacksonville State
    Lorenzo Taliaferro RB, Coastal Carolina
    Nikoe Whitley FS, Mississippi state
    Zach Fulton OG, Tennessee
    Damien Williams RB, Oklahoma
    Trevor Watts RB, Tulsaurr OLB, Fort Valley State
    Bryce Quigley OT, San Diego State

    I have had this mock saved and changed things with it a lot. These are some of the players I liked

    and at one point were one of the selections in the mock:

    Jadeveon Clowney
    Khalil Mack
    Jake Matthews
    Darqueze Dennard
    Justin Gilbert
    Zach Martin
    Ryan Shazier
    Kyle Van Noy
    Morgan Moses
    Sammy Watkins
    Jordan Matthews
    Jarvis Landry
    Dominique Easley
    Ronald Powell
    Jordan Zumwalt
    Prince Shembo
    Stanley Jean-Babptiste
    Pierre Desir
    Jaylen Watkins
    Phillip Gaines
    Louis Nix
    Carlos Hyde
    Spencer Long
    Marion Grice
    Charles Sims
    Billy Turner
    Caraun Reid
    Cyril Richardson
    Andre Hal
    Telvin Smith
    Lamarcus Joyner
    Christian Kirksey
    Garret Gilbert
    Connor Shaw
    Brett Smith
    Terrence Brooks
    Telvin Smith

    and many many many many more...There are a lot of good players in this draft I would not mind if
    were picked by the Rams.

    I also worked through about 30+ different trade scenarios as well.
    This extra two weeks just made me over analyze and rip apart everything over and over. Glad the draft is almost here.

    Well that's it folks. I tried to improve our defense to the point where it can be a top 5 defense and get Bradford some more protection.

    Hope you enjoyed and GO RAMS!!!!

    Very impressive - you have good taste. Its hard to imagine the Rams getting 3 first rounders and using all 3 on defense, but its hard to argue with your picks.

    I agree it's a good mock and like the idea of trading back up but I think you either have to get one of the top 3 tackles or one of the 2 big name recievers for Sam

    I like your mock and we'd be a power house on defense for years to come I'd think! lol

    It does hurt my feelings we miss out on Watkins or evans tbh! I would really like to FOR ONCE in Sam's career have somebody who should be a #1 WR to help him out with a solid O-Line and consistentancy in the OC.

    I don't think it maters much who our wide receivers are as long as Schotty is around. Of course having some more that don;t drop the ball wouldn't hurt...lol

    It's like a catch 22 man! You get rid of Schotty and get somebody who has a more explosive offensive scheme but then you have to have Bradford go through a 4th system? or 5th? I lost count -_- Anyways, then you have issues With Quick not getting it still..... sigh

    Plus our WR"s with stone hands isn't cool at all... it'll be nice to find somebody who doesn't drop TD's in the endzone or potential TD's like it's cool. Don't know what more Sam can do. work on Getting a 2.8 40 yard dash and run them the ball downfield? lol
