The Pre Draft Scenario:
-Rams didn't sign any Free Agents
-Didn't re-sign any own free agents
#2 pick to the Cleveland Browns for #8 and #24 (Colts pick)
-Sammy Watkins is the beast Wide Receiver of this class in the level of A.J. Green. He is explosive and has great hands. He will start opposite Chris Givens.
Pick #13: Ha'Sean "Ha Ha" Clinton-Dix FS, Alabama
Pick #24: Ra'Shede Hageman, DT/DE, Minnesota
Pick #13: Cyril Richardson OG, Baylor
-Rams needs to protect Sam Bradford and Chris Williams is not the answer at LG. Richardson is one of the best available Guard in the draft next to David Yankey. What's great about Richardson is that he can slide out at LT and still play at a high level. Versatility is a one trait that Jeff Fisher likes with his offensive lineman.
Round 3: Pick #13: E.J. Gaines CB, Missouri
-Gaines is the best cornerback in the SEC conference as he has covered the opposing team's top receivers despite his 5' 11" stature. He effective shutdown Texas A & M's Mike Evans without problem.
- Has been a starter for 4 years at Vanderbilt
- Has played all five offensive line positions which shows versatility.
- Has not called been called "false start" since his freshman year that shows good football presence and discipline.
- Playing in the SEC shows that he faced the best competition.

This is a scenario were there are no trade deals involve and the picks will be as it is.
1ST Round Pick 2: Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
-If the Rams are not able find a trade partner for pick #2 they will likely do the best player available approach. The selections would either DE Jadaveon Clowney, OT Jake Mathews but fter his performance at the Orange Bowl, WR Sammy Watkins has vaulted himself to the top 5 and be the next elite WR since A.J. Green. Sammy Watkins will instantly provide a surefire weapon for Sam Bradford.
1ST Round Pick 13: Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix Alabama Free Safety, Alabama
-The Rams are in need of secondary help specially at the Free safety position. Haha Clinton-Dix is the best free safety in the class as he has already played in a high level and has 2 national championship in his resume playing for Alabama in a tough SEC conference.
2ND Round Pick 13: Zack Martin Offensive Tackle/Guard, Notre Dame
-Zack Martin is a good Offensive Tackle in college but he is projected as a Left Guard in the next level. Jeff Fisher like versatility in his offensive lineman and adding Zack Martin might ease the time while Jake Long is injured. Once Long comes back he can slide back in.
3RD Round Pick 13: Shane Skov Linebacker Stanford
-Rams needed to replace Jo-Lonn Dunbar's production as a blitzer and run specialist at ROLB and Mr. Skov would be my candidate for that role. He can also play MLB so he can be JL55's backup.
4TH Round Pick 13: E.J. Gaines Cornerback Missouri
-Despite his 5'11 height, Gaines plays like he's taller cornerback and has shutdown Big SEC receivers like Mike Evans. Gaines would be a welcome addition to a struggling Rams secondary
5TH Round Pick 13: Justin Britt Offensive Tackle Missouri
-Rams needed to add depth at Offensive Tackle and Justin Britt is the best available swing tackle at this juncture. Britt is a 1st Team All-SEC at his position.
6TH Round Pick 13: JC Copeland Fullback LSU
-With the Rams rededicating to the running game, there will be a need for a lead blockers. For now H-Back Corey Harkey has been their best lead blocker. Adding Copeland would at least give the Rams another receiving option from the backfield or for short yardage I situations.
7TH Round Pick 13: Denicos Allen OLB Michigan State
-Michigan State is the top defensive team in the nation and one of the stars of that squad is Denicos Allen, he is athletic and is good at the point of attack. The only knack is his small frame.
