Post Super Bowl Mock Draft


The Super Bowl is over and now every team will have its full focus on free agency and the draft. For the first time we finally know what the full draft order will look like. Here is our post Super Bowl Mock Draft.

With the second overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the St. Louis Rams Select…

Sammy Watkins, WR, Clemson

The Rams are going to want to trade back from this spot, but with Cleveland being top contenders to trade for Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins, it could be unlikely. Either way, the Rams will not trade back far enough to miss out on Watkins.

Watkins gives the Rams that number one receiver that they have been missing since Torry Holt left and gives quarterback Sam Bradford a legitimate weapon on the outside.

Watkins has great ball skills and the ability to make big plays which is exactly what the Rams offense needs.

C.J. Mosley, LB, Alabama

The Rams could try to trade down to get Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, but I think 13 could be a bit of a reach for him. If the Rams can’t trade down, they still go defense, but instead draft a linebacker.

The Rams are more than likely not going to retain Jo-Lonn Dunbar this offseason which means they are going to have a hole at linebacker. Mosley played in a 3-4 at Alabama, but has the ability to play the “Will” linebacker in a 4-3, which is exactly where the Rams need him.

Mosley played a big part in the dominant Alabama defense and will give the Rams a scary linebacking corps and a dominant front seven. Gregg Williams would be licking his chops if the Rams drafted Mosley.

Mosley is very good against the run, has great tackling ability in the open field, and has pretty good pass coverage skills. Mosley is the missing piece in the Rams front seven that will make them elite.

 

The Rams have a lot of options in the first round and it would be ideal if they could pick up Clevelands other first round pick in a trade so that they could have a chance of drafting Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix as well and sure up their secondary, if not the Rams can get a good safety in the second round like Louisville’s Calvin Pryor or Florida State’s Lamarcus Joyner.

Pro days and the combine will change some things come May, but if the draft were to take place next week this is a direction that I could see the Rams going in.

    ive said this before and ill say it again please rams do not be the newest version of the detroit lions grabbing every wide receiver in the first round… unless you trade down, then getting watkins and still having picks is ok. if you are stuck at #2 which i do not believe happens take clowney gregg williams would be just as busy licking his chops at the idea of quinn long and clowney all rushing the qb and with dix in the back waiting to fly over and grab errant passes

      The Rams have one first round wide receiver on the roster and there there are still questions on the outside. Watkins is an elite wide receiver and a playmaker that the Rams need. If they don’t take Watkins I highly doubt the Rams would take Clowney. You don’t draft a rotational guy with the number two overall pick. If its not Watkins then the Rams will go Matthews or Robinson. I still don’t think Barr is an option either. It’s either WR or OL with the number two overall pick

        the Rams can still trade down and target DT Ra’shede Hageman in the middle of the 1st round, That would atleast upgrade their DT position with the potential of Kendall Langford getting cut AND he can provide the Rams the needed internal pressure and free up Long and Quinn. then on the #13 Rams should pick the best Hybrid safety in Clinton-Dix

    There are lots of good two down LB blitzers in the mid rounds like Jeremiah Attaucho of GT, Car Bradford of Arizona State, Chris Borland of Wisconsin and Shane Skov of Stanford. These linebackers won’t take up much cap space as they will only play 30% of the defensive snaps because JL55 and AO52 will be the nickel package ‘backers unless the Rams decide to use a pick #6-8 pick on Khalil Mack and use him as the rush backer on nickel packages (like they use Sammy Brown before).
