1a) OT Chris Faulk LSU

1b) OG Barett Jones Alabama

2) RB Jonathin Franklin UCLA

3) OLB Arthur Brown Kansas St

4 ) C James Ferentz Iowa

5 ) S Shawn Williams Georgia

6 ) RB Kenyon Barner Oregon

7) S Jawanza Starling USC

Why ? Jackson will be gone. The NFC West has some tough defenses. Bradford gets hit way to much.

Naw atleast one of those first round picks will be a WR. The top3 WRs in this draft are better than Blackmon in last years draft. We would be dumb to not pick one of them up

I totally disagree. No Jackson and no O-Line = no Bradford ! No Bradford means nobody to throw to all these WR's that everyone seems to want. Bradford is now the offense. You had better figure out a way to keep him healthy ?!

They have drafted Pettis. Kendricks, Quick and Givins in the last two drafts. Time to replace Jackson and keep Bradford healthy, IMHO.

The Rams are solid on defense but probably not the best in the division. What they do have is a young QB and alot of high draft picks. They can leap frog the rest of the division in offense next season

The following year they can worry about WR....if Quick, Givins and Pettis have'nt developed by then.

The three biggest weaknesses are OL and Safety....and with Jackson leaving, some one to help replace him ?

No balance means too much pressure on Bradford. Bradford is now the offense. You had better figure out a way to keep him healthy ?!

They have Pettis. Kendricks, Quick and Givins from the past two drafts. Time to replace Jackson and keep Bradford healthy, IMHO.

You better keep your QB healthy, because the NFC West has some of the tougher defenses in the NFL.

He can have all the time in the world but if his WRs dont get open and cant catch the ball what good is it?

One of the pics for sure should be OL but both is a bit too much, this offense needs PLAYMAKERS

Why ? I'll agree it's way to early to tell where everyone will go. But the Rams would be nuts not to fix the o-line....in this draft. Next year they can worry about the skill positions.

How did Fitzgerald and Arizona do while giving up 9 sacks ? Having a pro bowl reciever meant 7 points and a loss ?!

I don't think Faulk is a first rounder. I like Matthews, Joeckel, Lewan all over him. Probably others. I also think we could do way better than Franklin in the second. I absolutely love Arthur Brown though.

I don't think we take a C before the 5th..and I think if we let Jackson walk, there's no way we take a RB in the second. It would be in the first, and even then I don't think we would. Don't think we'd give up on pead that easily..I think we go
1st- WR
1st -OT
2nd- Saftey
3rd-OG
4th-olb
5th- somewhere on d-line
Then last two picks on offensive line

Jones said he wants to be a OT in the NFL, the reason he moved from LT at Alabama was to get the best 5 offensive lineman on the field. They have a sophomore starting at LT this year, who has played well. I like the picks but with Snead and Fisher odds are it won't happen.

I think we may try to help address the o-line in free agency as well as the draft this year. Too many young guys and there may be more missed blocks and mess ups in protection. The o-line definitely needs to be one of the main concerns in the off-season from what we have seen so far.

Thank god, someone that agrees. We've been calling for improvement in this area for as long as this forum has existed.

Depends on what we do in FA. I would love an O-Line heavy draft, and Franklin is a beast. If we sign a free agent WR then why not? Not really a Hunter fan, not too sure about how Woods is going to be as a true #1, and haven't really watched a whole lot of Allen. If we sign some weapons then sure up the O-Line, and have at it.

It's not a bad idea, but Jeff Fisher just doesn't draft O-linemen early very often. He believes in drafting them late and taking other team's leftovers and developing them and letting them grow together.

As a huge Kansas State fan I love the Arthur Brown pick in the third. The guy has a motor, and racks up tackles. He would compete for a starting job right away. I don't know if he would make it to the third round though....
