With The Second Pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams Select….
Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson
More than likely the Rams will be trying to trade down from this spot, but even so , I don’t think they trade down far enough to miss out of Watkins. A lot of players make sense here, and I’ve gone back and forth a lot on this pick.
Number two may be reaching a little bit, but after pro days the scouting combine, Watkins could end up as a top five pick making number two seems not so crazy.
However, after watching Watkins’ 16 catch, 227 yard, and two touchdown performance against the Ohio St. Buckeyes, it’s hard to believe that the Rams would pass on a guy like this to put on the outside.
Wakins would be able to come in right away and be that true number one receiver that Sam Bradford hasn’t had in his career as a Ram.
