Amazing work! Thanks a bunch!

Assuming the Rams shared your rankings of the players and judging by what I’m seeing of their priorities from positions scouted and private visits, I’ve identified 67-68 (lost count) players in which I see as their board. Or something close to it. The players I didn’t put on the list that are ranked high, I left off because I doubt they’ll be available by the time the Rams pick.

I doubt they share your rankings but I still feel pretty good saying that most of the names we end up drafting will come from this pared down list.

For the OTs, I’m assuming they initially convert them to OGs.


7. Jeffery Simmons - IDL - Mississippi State - 6'-3" 301 lbs. - Graded strictly on on-field play. A quick, penetrating DT, best suited for a 1 gap scheme. A punisher when he gets home.

8. Clelin Ferrell - EDGE - Clemson - 6'-4" 264 lbs. - Can play from a 2 or 3 point stance, has multiple pass rush moves and holds the edge against the run.

20. Garrett Bradbury - IOL - NC State - 6'-3" 306 lbs. - ultra-athletic for an OC, a technician, can anchor, high IQ. Always under control. Zone blocking scheme fit.

22. Chris Lindstrom - IOL - Boston College - 6'-4" 308 lbs. - strong with a powerful lower half to anchor, moves very well and with good form, he plays to the whistle all game long. A no holes but not elite OG. Fits any scheme.

24. Nasir Adderley - S - Delaware - 6'-0" 206 lbs. - Another swiss army knife FS that can play anywhere and comes with a CB background. Physical and not afraid of contact, sideline to sideline with ball skills. FCS competition isn't much of a concern.

27. Dexter Lawrence - IDL - Clemson - 6'-5" 342 lbs.- A true NT that can dictate the LoS against the run and has rare athleticism for a man his size to press the gaps as a pass rusher. Immediate 2 down starter.

First Round______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

32. Chase Winovich - EDGE - Michigan - 6'-3" 256 lbs. - Under-rated speed and athleticism, high motor and high IQ, sideline to sideline defender that can play the run and the pass, 3 down defender.

33. Dalton Risner - OT - Kansas State- 6'-5" 312 lbs. - Mauler, a strong, nasty mauler. RT that wants to finish you play after play. Experienced with good technique. 24 years old, so a bit older. man power scheme. I like him at RT, some may like him inside.

36. Erik McCoy - IOL - Texas A&M - 6'-4" 303 lbs. - An OC/OG prospect with a nice blend of power and athleticism. plays under control with good technique. power or zone fit.

37. Jerry Tillery - IDL - Notre Dame - 6'-6" 295 lbs. - Great size and strength to handle the run and get after the QB. When he puts everything together, he is tough to stop. I thought he ran too hot and cold to be a first round pick.

51. David Edwards - OT -Wisconsin - 6'-6" 308 lbs. - Another strong, mobile OT from Wisconsin. RT or possibly RG, he is well coached but lags a bit behind because he is still transitioning from TE.

52. Juan Thornhill -S - Virginia- 6'-0" 205 lbs. - If your shopping for a ballhawk FS, here you go. On top of that, his combine testing was otherworldly. He doesn't play that explosively, but he has plenty of juice. Solid tackler.

53. Deionte Thompson - S - Alabama - 6'-1" 195 lbs. - Another rangey FS, Like most Alabama defenders, he's aggressive. 1 year starter and his inexperience or instincts (not sure which) got him in trouble at times.

Second Round ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

62. Michael Deiter - OT - Wisconsin - 6'-5" 309 lbs. - He has played every line position, very athletic, with functional strength, and like every Wisc. OL, he has been well coached and has advanced technique.

65. Yodny Cajuste - OT - West Virginia - 6'-5" 312 lbs. - He has power for days and is a smooth mover in space given his size. I think he works in a zone or man power blocking scheme.

66. Dru Samia - IOL - Oklahoma - 6'-5" 305 lbs. - Great athlete for a OG, that uses superior technique over power and plays to the whistle all day. perfect zone blocker.

68. Devin Singletary - RB- FAU - 5'-7" 203 lbs. - Great vision, jitter bug in his movement, didn't catch much in college. Always looking to hit the big one.

71. Elgton Jenkins - IOL - Mississippi State - 6'-5" 310 lbs. - OC that has good size and a nice blend of athletic ability and power. Neither will wow you, but he will work in any scheme.

76. Amani Hooker - S - Iowa - 5'-11" 210 lbs. - a SS with good range and excellent ball skills. Not bursty, but his intelligence and anticipation keep him in every play. Excellent tackler.

77. Khalen Saunders - IDL - Western Illinois - 6'-0" 324 lbs. - Length is an issue, but he is a stout anchor with his built in leverage and strength. Has enough athletic ability to rush the passer, although its not his strong suit. Wore down in the games I saw. FCS level of competition.

82. Terrill Hanks - LB - New Mexico State - 6'-2" 242 lbs. - another 43 WILL. Plays faster then his timed speed and is a converted S. Coverage and range are his bread and butter, needs to get stronger (which shouldn't be an issue)

85. Renell Wren - IDL - Arizona State - 6'-5" 318 lbs. - strength and length are his calling cards (30 reps with 34" arms is really impressive) easy mover both laterally and going forward. Leverage can be an issue and really just needs to be coached up.

87. Connor McGovern - IOL - Penn State - 6'-5" 308 lbs. - A nice blend of power and athleticism that is more fluid then one would expect. needs technique work and lunges at times, but has a nasty demeanor.

88. Darnell Savage - S - Maryland - 5'-10" 198 lbs. - What I consider a combo safety that has excellent ball skills like a FS, yet plays a fast, aggressive thumping style that you expect from a SS. Can bite a bit too much and get over-aggressive at times, but I love his game.

92. Nate Davis - IOL - Charlotte - 6'-3" 316 lbs. - Interesting blend of power and flexibility. G/T prospect that has to move inside due to lack of length. I think he works in power man or zone blocking schemes.

97. Jamel Dean - CB - Auburn - 6'-1" 206 lbs. - ran a 4.31 but doesn't play that fast, a bit stiff thru the middle allowing separation coming out of his backpedal. That said, he plays tough (including playing with a cast on his hand) is fast enough and has all the physical attributes a team is looking for.

99. Kaleb McGary - OT - Washington - 6'-7" 317 lbs. - A mauler with plenty of size and experience. He isn't the most nimble or athletic OL, but he gets the job done. Technique could use some cleaning up to get the most out of his skill set. Man power scheme fit. - Conversion to OG?


101. Darrell Henderson - RB - Memphis - 5'-8" 208 lbs. - Slippery in space with HR speed, didn't catch a ton of passes, doesn't carry the size to consistantly run between the tackles, but is willing.

Third Round ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

108. Tytus Howard - OT - Alabama State - 6'-5" 322 lbs. - quite the package of size, strength and athleticism. But he is raw. Sushi raw. He could work inside or out, in probably any scheme. I say that because he is raw. Did I mention how raw he is?

109. Te'Von Coney - LB - Notre Dame - 6'-1" 234 lbs. - A between the tackles, tough, thumping gap filler. Athletic limitations make him a poor defender against the pass. ILB only, lacks the range to play outside.

112. Jaquan Johnson - S - Miami - 5'-10" 191 lbs. - A bit of a tweener, size of a FS, aggressiveness of a SS. Good range, but hasn't made a ton of plays on the ball. Does give you some scheme flexibility.

113. Jachai Polite - EDGE - Florida - 6'-3" 258 - A well oiled, explosive pass rusher with a high motor. needs to play around 245 to 250. I have changed how I grade and have taken red flags out, but his showing at the combine and pro day cannot be overlooked. If he pulls his head out, he will be a day 3 steal, or he's out of the league in a year or 2.

117. Max Scharping - OT - Northern Illinois - 6'-6" 327 lbs. - I love his size/athletic combination. Will need to be developed, but he could play either tackle spot, or inside at OG.

122. Justice Hill - RB - Oklahoma State - 5;-10" 198 lbs. - a hr hitter (4.40) with excellent balance/footwork. Plenty of pass catches in college, offers little in the form of power.

124. Brett Rypien - QB - Boise State - 6'-2" 210 lbs. - Accurate with good mechanics from the ground up, won't wow you with athleticism but isn't a statue either, plays under control, lacking a bit of arm strength.

125. Andy Isabella - WR - UMass - 5'-9" 188 lbs. - DZ special right here. He talked me into going back and looking him over. glad I did. Elite speed affords him a cushion, elite explosiveness in and out of breaks allows him separation. Can get manhandled in press coverage, but he's a fighter. Slot only, but could be extremely dangerous. in the right offense. Only on the list because this is the DZ special and he’d be a steal here...but I don’t think the Rams are drafting a WR.

126. Justin Hollins - EDGE - Oregon - 6'-5" 248 lbs. - A quick twitch pass rusher that wins on speed and quickness, needs to add strength before he is a 3 down 34 edge. The package is there though.

131. Bobby Evans - OT - Oklahoma - 6'-4" 312 lbs. -A smooth moving, athletic OT with decent power and a good anchor. Run blocking is ahead of his pass blocking. ZBS fit.

132. Kingsley Keke - IDL - Texas A&M - 6'-3" 288 lbs. - an advanced set of pass rush moves coupled with his athletic traits make him a decent pass rush specialist lacking an anchor against the run. Needs to play with more energy.

136. Mike Edwards - S - Kentucky - 5'-10" 205 lbs. - Another solid run defending FS with great instincts, but lacks real range. Aggressive, but not to a hinderance. Slot CB/Big Nickel/FS/SS depending on what a team wants from him.

137. Michael Jackson - CB - Miami - 6'-1" 210 lbs. - Strong and physical style of play with decent play speed and good not great movement skills. Good in run support. translate to an NFL press man corner.

139. T.J. Edwards - LB - Wisconsin - 6'-0" 230 lbs. - A nice fit as a 34 ILB, a tad undersized, but that is the way the NFL is going. Plays well moving forward and can hold his own in zone coverage. Too tight to turn and run with TEs. Like his teammate Connelly, good instincts.

Forth Round ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

144. Isaiah Johnson - CB - Houston - 6'-2" 208 lbs. - Converted WR with ball skills. Still learning the position, so time is needed to develop, but hard to teach his size, speed (4.4) and fluidity.

145. Will Harris - S - Boston College - 6'-1" 207 lbs. - A size/speed (4.4) SS with an aggressive nature against the run and tons of range against the pass. The TE eraser. (fun note, against Iowa, helped hold Fant and Hockenson to 3 catches for 17 yards...)

154. Chuma Edoga - OT - USC - 6'-4" 308 lbs. - Athletic and light on his feet, plenty of length to man the LT position. Wildly inconsistent film this year and lack of strength means he is going to need time to be developed. ZBS is his fit. Conversion to OG?

157. Tre Watson - LB - Maryland - 6'-2" 235 lbs. - ILB that can bring the lumber. 5 ints on the year shows he's ok in coverage as well. A stat machine that would work in a defense that can keep him clean.

161. Kris Boyd - CB - Texas - 6'-0" 201 lbs. - Good size and 4.4 speed, physical and aggressive, that aggressiveness works against him at times. Not the smoothest in and out of his transitions.

165. Ryan Bates - OT - Penn State - 6'-5" 306 lbs. - I think he could be a super sub for a zbs team. He has played all over for Penn State and has decent movement skills and enough strength to play inside.

168. Bobby Okereke - LB - Stanford - 6'-1" 239 lbs. - He's a thumper. I like him as a Will so he can seek and destroy while avoiding blockers, once engaged in a block, he cannot disengage. Surprisingly stiff considering his angular frame.

169. Sheldrick Redwine - S - Miami - 6'-0" 196 lbs. - Nice combination of speed and physicality. A CB turned S, still feeling his way in his new position, team will need to coach him up.

170. Blake Cashman - LB - Minnesota - 6'-1" 237 lbs. - A Will LBer that lacks speed, but makes up for it with effort. Flows well to the ball, but needs to be kept clean and could use a year in an NFL weightroom which could give him some positional flexibility.

172. Dontavius Russell - IDL - Auburn - 6'-3" 319 lbs. - High effort, high motor run plugger with a bit of gap penetration. A 1 or 2 gap NT. A poor man's Dexter Lawrence seems to fit.

173. Mark Fields - CB - Clemson - 6'-0" 192 lbs. - sub 4.4 speed in a 6' body with loose joints. injuries and stuck behind guys on depth chart make him a bit unpolished.

175. Austin Bryant - EDGE - Clemson - 6'-4" 271 lbs. - works either in a 2 point or 3 point stance, a try hard pass rusher with great length, decent athletic ability, needs coaching up. Should be stouter against the run then he is.

Fifth Round ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

179. Isaiah Prince - OT - Ohio State - 6'-6" 305 lbs. - A good mover, but stiff which is weird. Doesn't get good bend in his sets. That diminishes his strength some. He has the size the NFL wants. ZBS is his best fit.

187. Greg Gaines - IDL - Washington - 6'-1" 312 lbs. - A fire hydrant. Built in leverage and all day power make him ideal as a early down run stuffer that offers little in the form of a pass rush.

190. Tyler Jones - OT - NC State - 6'-3" 306 lbs. - At his size, he's moving inside to OG, a technician with above average athletic ability and average at best strength, he profiles well into a ZBS with a year or 2 to add NFL muscle and mass.


192. Jahlani Tavai - LB - Hawaii - 6'-2" 250 lbs. - He plays decisively and not afraid to exchange power, doesn't offer much in the way of pass coverage. Built like an old school Mike and I'm not sure how that plays in todays NFL.

207. Trey Pipkins - OT - Sioux Falls - 6'-6" 309 lbs. - truth in advertising, I have only seen him in the shrine game. He showed a nice combination of size, athletic ability and strength, he's going to need time to develop I would imagine.

210. Malik Reed - EDGE - Nevada - 6'-1" 237 lbs. - Athletic and loose limbed, high motor and high character, might suffer from tweener-itis. Is he a 34 edge or a 43 lber? I like him as a 34 edge as a situational pass rusher.

213. Derrick Baity - CB - Kentucky - 6'-2" 197 lbs. - Great size for the position, but needs to add some lbs for the next level. A bit disjointed in his movement skills, good fit in a zone scheme.

218. Tyree Jackson - QB - Buffalo - 6'-7" 249 lbs. - Monster arm and a good athlete, his mechanics and accuracy are not good. Will need time and a great QB coach to develop.

219. C.J. Conrad - TE - Kentucky - 6'-5" 249 lbs. -good hands and give em hell attitude. Won't wow you athletically, a zone sitter and chain mover TE. Needs to add NFL strength.

Sixth Round ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________


229. James Williams - RB - Washington State - 5'-10" 197 lbs. - Smooth and nimble, lacks the power to run consistently between the tackles. Outstanding pass catcher.

237. Kendall Sheffield - CB - Ohio State - 5'-11" 193 lbs. - Oily hips and plenty of quickness, but really needs technique work. Draft and stash as you develop him type.

238. Mike Weber - RB - Ohio State - 5'-10" 211 lbs. - Smart, patient runner with pass catching skills, lacks athleticism and has some durability concerns.

243. John Cominsky EDGE - Charleston - 6'-5" 286 lbs. - another inside/outside DL that loved using the 4 point stance, excellent run defender, lacks flexibility to win in space as an edge rusher.
