We are up to the Rams second pick in our mock draft, and this one was a little tougher than the first round. I think the team is going to be looking at defensive tackle here, and there should be plenty quality players available at that position. However, because there are guys like Devon Still, Jerel Worthy and Kendall Reyes likely on the board, I could see the Rams going a different way here and rolling the dice that one of those guys is available at 39. There are plenty of options, that’s for sure.
Part of me wants to take Mike Adams here, but after his positive marijuana test, he is falling down draft boards. I think he’s a nice player, but I’m not completely sold on him being a great pro.
Therefore, with the 33rd pick in he 2012 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams select Devon Still, DT Penn State.
Still is going in the first round in some mocks, and I don’t think there’s any doubt that he’s a first-round talent. He’s huge at 6-foot-5 305 lbs, and he is the reigning Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. He had 17 tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks last season, and he was a force in the middle of that defensive line. He might be off the board, but if he’s there it would be a great pick for the Rams.
