The draft continues to creep closer, and the Rams are still bringing in prospective choices. On Wednesday, the team hosted LSU DT Michael Brockers, Notre Dame WR Michael Floyd and Alabama CB Dre Kirkpatrick. This group is very talented, but it seems unlikely that any of these guys will be considered at six. If the Rams decide to trade down, however, any of these three could be in play.
Brockers and Kirkpatrick are both nice players at positions of need, but let’s focus on Floyd for now. He has gotten rave reviews from his workouts since the season ended, and he was a monster in his final year with the Irish. He has had some alcohol issues, and I think he will drop because of it. I think he’s going to be an outstanding NFL receiver, and I would love to see him in St. Louis.
He scares me at six because of the issues, but if Blackmon is off the board I wouldn’t be against trading down and taking him. There is going to be a great player there at six no matter what, but taking a good offer, accumulating picks and grabbing Floyd might be a better option. I don’t know how the Rams feel about Floyd, but I think this is a very realistic option. It’s very realistic, and it might just be the best option.
