The St. Louis Rams figure to have a variety of options when May's NFL draft rolls around. In free agency, the team has mostly remained silent but recently ramped up activity to add depth at quarterback, defensive tackle and wide receiver.
As one of two teams with a pair of first-round picks, the Rams can go different ways with their top selection, which is No. 2 overall. A common prediction among the mock draft crowds has seen offensive linemen regularly mocked to St. Louis at that spot. In this edition of Mel Kiper Jr.'s mock, he takes a slightly different tact and offers his preference for the player each team should take in the first three rounds. When it comes to the Rams, that flexibility allows for him to stray from so-called conventional wisdom.
