    Going with the list I posted in the competition and it's a list comprised entirely of people we've had workouts/visits/meetings with.

    Round 3 pick 87 Obo Okowronko Edge Oklahoma

    [​IMG]

    Round 4 pick 111 Geron Christian OT Louisville

    [​IMG]

    Round 4 pick 135 Micah Kiser ILB Virginia

    [​IMG]

    Round 4 pick 136 Dane Cruikshank FS

    [​IMG]

    Round 6 pick 176 Brandon Parker OT NC AT&T

    [​IMG]

    Round 6 pick 183 Joe Ostman OLB Central Michigan

    [​IMG]

    Round 6 pick 194 Dejon Allen G Hawaii

    [​IMG]

    Round 6 pick 195 Daurice Fountain WR Northern Iowa

    [​IMG]

    First pick we add an edge Wade. Then we load up on some OLine to work with and provide depth while adding a guy that will come in right away and compete for an ILB spot in Kiser. Again the focus of this was a combination of my perceived needs and people they've visited with leading up to this draft.

    Tough to debate this draft, we all have our preferences, but @OldSchool addressed every area, my only change would be passing on Fountain for a RB because unless there is a trade, I don't see how a WR can make the team unless there is an injury as the Rams already have 7 that made the squad last season exchanging Watkins for Cooks.

    I also prefer Kemoko Turay, over Okoronkwo, however, Turay might be gone before the Rams pick and if not, I will trust Wade Phillips to pick the right guy.

    I understand both points but as I said this list is entirely from the people we've brought in for visits, met with at the combine or went to their pro days. Turay isn't on that list that I've seen, I could have missed it. And we only worked out 2 backs. Penny IMO is gone by 87 and the other IMO is gone sometime in the 4th and to me the other positions taken in the 3rd and 4th are more important. The WR in my book replaces Austins spot next year and spends this year on the practice squad unless there is an injury.

    It's a good mock. I think Parker falling that far is a bit unlikely. I've also been hearing reports that Christian could go Round 2. That displeases me.

    Oldschool, I like your Mock overall ; especially the defensive players. However, Allen is only 6'2" - 6'3" ; 290-295 lbs. I'm not sure he has the size/skills to move ahead of a player like Eldrenkamp on the interior. I know you didn't care for my Mock lacking a Guard. But, I think Ragnow, even though he's listed as a Center, also has experience playing Guard along with having the prototypical size/skills and experience playing in the SEC. Regarding the 2 Tackles, I think both are good enough to compete now.

    Adding 10-15 lbs wouldn't be beyond our current coaching staff for him but I get what you're saying about Allen. The only thing I'll say is Kromer and McVay must think highly of him and are ok with his weight if they took the time to work him out for one of our 30 visits, something they didn't do with Ragnow btw.

    I like the fact that you stuck with players with whom the Rams have shown an interest. Obviously, that makes your picks completely plausible, whether we like the guys or not.

    It would be amazing if the Rams landed both of those tackles because I think there's gonna be a run on them right before that.

    Nice to see both you and the Rams are interested in a FS.

    I admit I'm not the biggest O-O fan because he's kinda raw, but the Rams don't really need him to play a huge role this year and I trust this staff/FO to make the right call re an edge guy.

    Great job.

    Very impressive to actually call two of their eventual picks

    Bravo Sir!

    Thanks guys! Though I don't think they were anywhere near where they were picked it's still nice to see once in a while a dart hits the board and scores. I'm curious the numbers now after 2 years on how many we draft from the senior bowl. I know it's a high percentage.
