Hi All,

I recently participated in a GM Mock Draft representing the Rams.

The rules were that we retained all our RFAs and UFAs. As such, you will have to imagine a world where Gibson/Amendola come back at a discount, Mikell accepts a pay cut etc.

Trades/Acquisitions
STL Receive: WR Greg Jennings
GB Receive: RB Steven Jackson

A simulated FA move. Jennings fits well as a high character veteran who can set an example on how to prepare to the young Rams WR corps. Jackson opts out of his deal to chase a ring.

STL Receive: OLB James Anderson
CAR Receive: OLB Rocky McIntosh and a 6th Rd Pick

Not a special player but a solid one who allowed me to focus on other needs in the draft. Slightly overpaid at $3m per year, but not crippling.

STL Receive: OG John Moffit & 7th Rd Pick
SEA Receive: LB Justin Cole

Picked up some cheap depth at guard and a pick for a reserve.

CB Richard Marshall - Free Agent (cut by Dolphins)
OLB Kaluka Maiava - Free Agent (cut by Browns)

Marshall was a good player in Arizona who also has experience at FS. Maiava has speed and is good on ST as a replacement for Cole's skills there.

Draft Picks
Link to see who was available at each pick:http://www.footballsfuture.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=513339

1st Round (#16 Overall)
Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
With Warmack, Jarvis Jones and Richardson off the board, I grabbed Johnson to lock down RT pass protection and to provide insurance against a Saffold injury.

1st Round (#22 Overall) - via WAS
Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida
Creates a great rotation with Langford and was BPA. Easy decision once Jonathan Cooper was taken by Dallas.

2nd Round (#46 Overall)
Matt Elam, S, Florida
Great in the box and with more coverage ability than many credit him for. Re-united with Janoris Jenkins. Was hoping to grab one of Eifert/Ertz/Warford/Lacy here, but the top of the 2nd was not kind to my big board.

3rd Round (#78 Overall)
Travis Kelce, TE, Cincinnati
Much needed extra red-zone target and one of the better blockers in the TE class. Really debated going with Travis Fredrick here but decided a weapon > protection.

4th Round (#110 Overall)
Tony Jefferson, FS, Oklahoma
Value selection - future centre fielder who has decent tackling form (mostly). Good match with Elam's skillset.

5th Round (#142 Overall)
Zaviar Gooden, OLB, Missouri
I wanted a OLB to develop behind Anderson/Dunbar, and Gooden's speed is intriguing.

7th Round (#198 overall) - via SEA/BUF
Zac Stacy, RB, Vanderbilt
A flier on a RB with an interesting skillset.

7th Round (#206 Overall)
Denard Robinson, Returner, Michigan
Why not? If he can catch the ball, he'll help on returns at least.

Depth Chart

QB: Sam Bradford / Kellen Clemens / Austin Davis

RB: Daryl Richardson / Isaiah Pead / Zac Stacy / Terrance Ganaway
WR: Greg Jennings / Brian Quick
WR: Chris Givens / Brandon Gibson
WR: Danny Amendola / Austin Pettis
TE: Lance Kendricks / Travis Kelce / Matthew Mulligan

LT: Rodger Saffold / Joe Barksdale
LG: Shelley Smith / Brandon Washington
OC: Scott Wells / Robert Turner
RG: Harvey Dahl / Rokevious Watkins / John Moffit
RT: Lane Johnson / Barry Richardson

---

DE: Chris Long / William Hayes
DT: Kendall Langford / Sharrif Floyd
DT: Michael Brockers / Jermelle Cudjo
DE: Robert Quinn / Eugene Sims

SLB: James Anderson / Zaviar Gooden
MLB: James Laurinaitis / Josh Hull
WLB: Jo-Lonn Dunbar / Kaluka Maiava

CB: Cortland Finnegan / Bradley Fletcher
CB: Janoris Jenkins / Quinton Porter
NB: Trumaine Johnson / Richard Marshall
FS: Quintin Mikell / Tony Jefferson / Rodney McLeod
SS: Matt Elam / Darian Stewart

K: Greg Zuerlein
P: Johnny Hekker
LS: Jake McQuaide
Ret: Denard Robinson


Overall, I feel I did a decent job at getting value. The major worry is the interior OL - LG is basically an open competition between a lot of unproven players. But the defense looks very stout, and there was some good value obtained.

What do you think?

To put it bluntly, you owned that mock. Great draft and excellent trades. Stacy is an amazing pick in the 7h.

id prefer Keenan Allen over Greg Jennings at this point of his career

Kyle Long over Elam cause you drafted Jefferson in the 5th.

I followed DaB in the mock and he crushed it! Well done.
