    Round 3-23-87 ) Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, OLB, Oklahoma

    Unless the team can get into range to move up for the OT Tyrell Crosby, my guess is that this is the player the Rams really want at this selection. My hope is that his less than ideal height keeps him on the board and that he has an Elvis Dumervil type of success in the league.

    Round 4-11-111 ) Siran Neal, DB, Jacksonville State

    Most would hate this selection on draft day, but then love it later. This kid is a hitter who has played Safety, LB, and CB in college. And from what I've read more than held his own in press manage coverage at Senior Bowl practices. Remember the 2018 draft isn't just about the 2018 season.

    Round 4-35-135 Christian Sam, LB, Arizona State

    Minus a shot at a 1st round blue chipper, this is probably the earliest I would even consider an ILB in this draft class for Wade Phillips defense. Simply put, Sam would be Corey Littleton's competition to replace Alec Ogletree in the starting lineup. Let the best man win.

    Round 4-36-136 ) Foye Olukun, LB/DB, Yale

    This is my Ebenezer Ekuban selection in this draft. Here's another small school wonder with tremendous physical ability that most have probably never heard of, to date. Here is another physical, former safety who could compete with Ramik Wilson and others once Mark Barron is dealt or released for cap purposes (Probably in the minority on that opinion, too).

    Round 6-2-176 ) Round 6-9-183) Ito Smith, RB Southern Mississippi

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKSJjLqWLuA


    Simply put, this kid here is what free agent bust, Lance Dunbar, was supposed to be last year.

    Round 6-20-194 ) Tony Adams, OL, North Carolina State

    If you haven't already, many will scream bloody murder if the Rams don't address the OLine sooner than this selection in the draft. Not me. I'd love to find a potential replacement for Whitworth, but I'm hopeful the Rams don't reach in a weak draft class to do so. Adams is a pretty good interior OLineman who I'm guessing only makes it this far because of his height.

    Round 6-21-195 ) Jamil Demby, OL, Maine

    Kid played OT in college, but probably moves inside in the NFL. More NFL competition for the OLine.

    Good, realistic draft. I like that you came up with your own guys and I agree with the reasoning too. I would be very happy if they can land Okoronkwo, but I am doubtful. The versatility guys in, Neal and Olukin fit Wades desire for versatile players. Both have potential as depth. The Olinemen would be good value that late, especially Demby.

    If he is not on most team's radar, why would you use a 4th round pick on him?

    Also, did you trade way your 6-9 (183) pick and not get anything for it? ;)

    I'm sure that the NFL teams have heard of Olukun. My guess is that most fans have not.

    Good catch on pick 6-9 (183). Made a late change and forgot to update.

    6-9 (183) Kylie Fitts, Edge, Utah

    Started to go with another TE to keep the Rams streak going, but instead here's another athlete with a high Sparq ranking who may turn out to be a better Pro OLB than he was a college DE. If he can beat the injury bug that has hounded him the past couple of seasons, he could make good competition for a roster spot.

    I think you can get Okoronkwo in the 5th. I think he will be a good edge rusher. Also foresee Crosby sliding due to his fatty body.
