New St. Louis Rams Jared Cook and Jake Long can’t fill every hole on the roster, but the tight end and offensive tackle are a nice start. A lot more work will come in the form of the upcoming 2013 NFL draft, wherein the Rams have two first-round picks and one selection in each subsequent round.
The following selections will be based on team need, player performance and Bleacher Report’s Matt Miller’s latest seven-round mock draft. In this mock, St. Louis has the advantage of “knowing” who will come off the board—and when they’ll do so—but it won’t have every player available to choose.
If a player is available to the Rams at a particular juncture in Miller’s mock, he will be in this space, as well.
The lone exception is West Virginia wideout Tavon Austin, who Miller has the Rams taking at 22—but the multi-dimensional playmaker would have to tumble pretty far for that to happen.
