Rams would be golden to get Watkins and one of the big three OT's

 

 

Rams here there and everywhere !!! ... After St. Louis checked out big-time OT prospects Greg Robinson of Auburn and Texas A&M's Jake Matthews at their respective pro days earlier in the week, the burning question around the league was whether the Rams would show the same kind of interest in Clemson WR Sammy Watkins at his pro day on Thursday. The simple answer is they did as St. Louis G.M. Les snead led another large contingent to the Tigers' pro day where Watkns reportedly had a strong showing in receiving drills. The Rams have the second pick overall at this year's draft and it appears that if they keep the pick that the logical choice for the Rams would come down to Watkins or one of the two OTs. And while the Rams have expressed an interest in trading out of the #2 pick, there is also some speculation that St. Louis could also consider grabbing Watkins with the #2 pick and then try and trade up from the 13th pick back into the top ten to get one of the OTs. Stay tuned.

I don't care what team you're on, your FO is interested in Clowney and Watkins. It doesn't matter if they didn't talk him at the combine, or whatever, they are interested. You just don't see talent like that every day.

Greg Robinson is a beast but the Rams would be dumbe to pass up on Clowney or Watkins. Take an OT at 13th.

I would absolutely expect them to take Watkins at 2 if they don't trade down.

 

Let's say for instance, the Falcons wanted to move from six to two, what would they have to give up?  A second?

 

Anyway, if they Rams go to 6, there is a chance that they still get Watkins at 6 and move from 13 to 9 with a 3rd to get Lewan or Matthews.

 

They are definitely in an exciting spot, especially with their 2 first rounders.

If your FO thinks Robinson is going to reach his ceiling (Trent Williams) then I disagree with Watkins. Watkins is very good, but I don't think you're getting a Julio Jones or AJ Green and certainly not a Megatron with him.  They might be better off grabbing Robinson at 2 (or even move down a few spots to 4 if Cleveland wants to go up and get a QB), and grabbing Evans or OBJ at 13 or even Ebron.

Cleveland definitely acting like they don't want a QB and their GM said at the combine that he already knew which QB he liked.  Could he be referring to Hoyer?

 

Cleveland could also trade down if Watkins is gone to someone like Minnesota and pick up Mack or Mosely to replace D Jackson, then another good WR with their second pick to pair with Gordon

—A source very close to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers tells me the team is leaning toward a pass-rusher with the No. 7 overall pick in the draft. While Jadeveon Clowney would be preferred, Khalil Mack or Anthony Barr must be considered too, but neither is a traditional fit in Lovie Smith's defense—unless the scouts see Mack or Barr in a Von Miller-type role. 

—Where will the Bucs go in Round 2? Cornerback is the area I'm told they're leaning toward most heavily. A few names to consider are Bradley Roby (Ohio State), Bashaud Breeland (Clemson) or Lamarcus Joyner (FSU).

I believe that Robinson will be a better player than Trent Williams.

I think Watkins is Julio, not Green. But, you have to get better offensively on offense in St. Louis and no better than to go with an explosive reciever than Watkins. The Rams are thin at that position. Tavon will be very good but hes not an outside guy. You are playing in a division with Sherman, PP7, and a very good 49ers secondary. You have to match up.

Taylor Lewan and Zack Martin may not be Robinson but are pretty good players too.

I don't think they're thin, more of inexperienced. They've got young play makers who just haven't had that breakout year yet. I'm of the opinion that we're still going to see a lot more of Pettis, Quick and Bailey Really think Quick could make the jump into a 700+ yard receiver if they can get consistent QB play actually.
