Rams Mock Draft Roundup 1.0

Posted Feb 17, 2017

In the first check-in with 2017 mock drafts TheRams.com finds out who the draft experts project the Rams to select with their early picks.

With the NFL Combine getting underway in a couple weeks it’s time to start thinking draft. As of now the Rams are without a first-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, as they shipped it to the Tennessee Titans as part of last year’s trade that landed top pick QB Jared Goff. That means their initial selection in 2017 will come in the second round at No. 37. TheRams.com did its first of many check-ins with some of the top online draft experts to see who they had the Rams slated to take, along with some third- and fourth-round projections as well.

Sports Illustrated: Chris Burke, SI.com (published 2/8)

Second Round, Pick No. 37 overall

- JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR, USC

"Ideally, you want a WR who can break open on every play. Smith-Schuster may not do that, but he uses his outstanding hands and body positioning to make catches in tight spaces."

USA Today: Luke Easterling, USA Today (1/16)

Second Round, Pick No. 37 overall

- Jourdan Lewis, CB, Michigan

—————

SB Nation: Dan Kadar, SB Nation (2/6)

Second Round, Pick No. 37 overall

- Gareon Conley, CB, Ohio State

"The Rams could use an offensive lineman, but Conley can be the No. 1 cornerback the team has needed. He could very likely carry a first-round grade from many teams."

Fox Sports: Dieter Kurtenbach, FoxSports.com (2/16)

Second Round, Pick No. 37 overall

- Rasul Douglas - CB - West Virginia

“This riser is going to be getting plenty of looks on Day 1. He has the highest boom-or-bust potential of any highly rated corner in the draft. He could be the top corner the Rams need."

San Diego Union-Tribune: Eddie Brown, San Diego Union-Tribune (2/8)

Second Round, Pick No. 37 overall

- Dede Westbrook, WR, Oklahoma, Sr.

"The Rams could use someone to stretch the field, opposite of Kenny BrittTavon Austin is more of an intermediate threat."

"Westbrook won the Biletnikoff Award — best receiver in the nation. Of his school-record 17 touchdowns, 12 were for 40 yards or more."

Third Round, Pick No. 101 overall (projected compensation for CB Janoris Jenkins*)

- Fabian Moreau, CB, UCLA, rSr.
