    Are there any prospects you like the look of who aren't getting as much love as you believe they deserve or who could be a really good fit for us Rams?

    I'll start off with 2:

    Jordan Matthews, WR, Vanderbilt

    currently ranked as a 3rd round pick by CBS.com, tall (6'3") reasonably fast (4.46 compared to 4.43 for the undisputed number 1 WR) productive (all time SEC leader) and bloodlines (the cousin of Jerry Rice).

    Dion Bailey, FS, Southern California

    Currently ranked as a 4th round prospect, former team mate of TJ McDonald which should help his transition, experience at CB so has zone coverage experience, former LB so isn't afraid to lay the lumber, questions over his 40 time (4.66 compared to 4.58 for Dix and Pryor) if the theory of Fisher not rating the S position as highly as others I'd love to add him to this D and he could be (with another CB) the finishing touch we need to become elite. Or he could become a bust I'm no expert :unsure:

    I like the Florida State FS that runs a 4.3-4.4... Or I could have just made that up. Not sure anymore.

    Not really under the radar just not many talking about the Rams drafting him. I would love to see Arron Donald in horns to complete our Dline.

    I like WR Shaq Evans, and ILB Jordan Zumwalt out of UCLA. I like OL Jack Mewhort, Justin Britt, Dakota Dozier, and Kadeem Edwards.

    Here's my list for all those 6th and 7th round picks we have. Some may be picked earlier but some will be there.

    QB C Shaw
    QB S Morris
    TE X Grimble
    FS A Exum
    RB D Fluellen
    CB N Lawson
    CB A Colvin
    LB K Fortt
    LB J Morris
    DT J Bromley
    DT G UKO
    G T Turner
    G B Thomas

    If I hit on one of these guys and the Rams select the same player that would make my day.

    Huskies players RB Bishop Sankey
    and TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins. I know we don't need either but I really like the way these guys play.

    Don't know how far under the radar they are any more, but I've long been intrigued with Ole Miss WR Donte Moncrief, Indiana WR Cody Latimer, and Alabama WR Kevin Norwood.

    Others include Florida CB Jaylen Watkins, LSU OG Trai Turner, North Carolina OT James Hurst, California DT Deandre Coleman, South Carolina QB Conner Shaw, Oklahoma FB/RB Trey Millard, Alabama S Vinnie Sunseri, & Mississippi State S Nickoe Whitley.

    Cossell really likes Moncrief.

    Off the radar- Ohio State backup QB Kenny Guiton

    Undervalued- Allen Robinson

    Under the radar- PSU OG John Urschel

    Bashaud Breeland really impressed me. He's hardly talked about.

    Logan Thomas. QB. Taking him late since I'm so against wasting a pick in a early round.
    You can teach a QB mechanics and how to mange a game, but you can't teach size, arm strength and speed.

    I'm with you on this one. Lower body mechanics for him, but maybe one of the freakiest athlete's not talked about in this draft.

    big fan of Jordan Matthews- I think he will end up one of the top 2 wrs in this draft- like Watkins, a ton of want to- he just finds a way to make plays and tough catches.

    Like Watkins from FSU - very solid player.

    I've had my eye on him since last year. He had no real QB coaching, seems like a student of the game. A fast TE size QB. I wouldn't play him for 2 years at all, just let him learn. Reminds me of a very raw Ben Roethlisberger.

    The guy didn't even really want to play QB, they just stuck him there. I know his story, and I agree, perfect guy to draft lower, and teach.

    Are you referring to Terrence Brooks? That's the FS that I've wanted all along. I don't like Dix much at all and I can't find much tape on Pryor. The little I did find on him, he looked more like a SS than FS to me. Same goes for Ward.

    Not a fan of highlight films(or the music they use in this one) but it at least gives you an idea of how he can play. He's #31
