Round 1 – #14 – Julio Jones (WR, Alabama)
I still think there’s a chance he’s there, but I’m losng believers left and right. Only time will tell, but I can’t imagine the team not taking him if he’s available.
Round 2 – #47 – Adrian Clayborn (DE, Iowa)
Before you get all crazy saying there’s no way he’s still around at 47, keep this in mind. He has been falling down boards because of a disorder called Erb’s Palsy, which limits shoulder strength. That being said, I think he is too good to pass up here at a position of need. There are varying reports on how much this will affect his play, but I still like him and I think he’s still there because of the depth at the position.
Round 3 – #78 – Mason Foster (OLB, Wash)
I have pretty much been in love with Foster for months now, and I think the Rams will jump on him if he’s still there in the third. I have seen him move up into the late second is some recent mocks, so there’s a chance he’s gone. If Foster isn’t available, look out for Clint Boling (G, Georgia) at this spot.
Round 4 – #112 – Daniel Thomas (RB, K-State)
It’s really hard to predict where running back will go in this draft, because after Mark Ingram and Mikel Leshoure they are all pretty much grouped together. The Rams have interest in Thomas, and I think he is the pick here if he’s still around. If not, guys like Jordan Todman , Shane Vereen, etc. will be in play.
Round 5 – #145 – Robert Sands (FS, W. Va)
This team needs to address the safety position, and I think they get a pretty good value pick here with Sands. I like what I’ve seen from him, and he should be available still at this point.
Round 7 – #216 – Jock Sanders (WR, W. Va.)
The seventh round is the time to gamble a bit, and Sanders is a perfect option. The Rams are said to have interest, and I find him to be one of the more intruiging late-round guys being mentions. McD would like to have a weapon like him to experiment with, and I think he’ll still be around.
