It looks like unless Sam Bradford comes off like Chad Pennington on his March 29 pro day that the Rams (barring a blockbuster trade) are going to make him the first overall pick in 2010 NFL Draft.
Assuming this, I went ahead and decided to help Billy Deavney and his scouting department and did a mock draft for rounds two through seven. My mock emphasizes surrounding Bradford with playmakers so that his transition into the NFL will be a smooth one. Well...at least give him a fighting chance.
I think the best thing the Rams could do to help Bradford would be to fire their offensive coordinator. The Rams 2009 offense was unimaginative and boring. The players I drafted in my mock are players that need a scheme that is uptempo and innovative, paging Mike Martz.
Keep in mind that I am not Mel Kiper, nor am I as smug as Todd McShay. But I am an enormous college football fan who watches a lot of games. My selections are generally based on what my eyes have shown over the course of two to three seasons and what players really popped off the screen to me.
As with any mock, there will be some who agree and some who will be outraged by my selections. I may have reached for a player or taken someone who you may feel does not fit the Rams scheme.
But I thought I would put it out there and see what you guys think.
