The NFL Scouting Combine is over and free agency will be getting started within the next week which could change how a team approaches the draft. Here is our latest St. Louis Rams 2014 mock draft.
With the second pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the St. Louis Rams Select….
Auburn OT, Greg Robinson
This has been what you could call an expert consensus pick. I go back and fourth between Robinson and Watkins, but Robinson is the better player and also fills a need. He fits what the Rams are looking for in a tackle and has a huge upside.
Although the Rams will try to trade out of this pick, in the rare case that they can’t, the Rams should highly consider taking Robinson he has gone up draft boards over the past month and could very well have a slim chance of going first overall. If the head coach Jeff Fisher is ever going to take an offensive lineman in the first round, now is the year to do it.
With the 13th pick in the 2014 NFL Draft the St. Louis Rams select…
Alabama, S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix
Clinton-Dix and Calvin Pryor are fighting for that top safety spot, and although Pryor has made a strong effort, that guy is still Clinton-Dix. The Rams could go wide receiver here, but this draft is very deep at wide receiver and not very deep at safety.
The Rams can get a starting wide receiver in the second or even third round while it will be hard to find that in any of the other safeties. The Rams take the best player available while also taking the safety that best fits their defense in Clinton-Dix.
What the Rams do in free agency could change which direction the Rams go in the first round of the draft, but as of right now, this would be a pretty solid first round. The Rams get their left tackle of the future, while adding a playmaker in the secondary.
