Casserly mock 2.0: Rams go with Goff at No. 1

Print

PICK

1

Jared Goff - QB, Cal

More ready to play now than Carson Wentz. This team has been a quarterback away from the playoffs.

PICK

2

Carson Wentz - QB, North Dakota State

Do they take Wentz or make the big trade? No big trade offered, so they take Wentz.

PICK

3

Laremy Tunsil - OT, Ole Miss

Not a primary need but they take the best player available. Alternative pick: DeForest Buckner.

PICK

4

Ezekiel Elliott - RB, Ohio State

Big debate -- offense or defense? Offense wins. Elliott can win more games for them than any other rookie. Alternative pick: Joey Bosa.

PICK

5

Joey Bosa - DE, Ohio State

They went hard for Olivier Vernon in free agency to improve their pass rush. They end up with Bosa. Alternative pick: Jalen Ramsey.

PICK

6

Jalen Ramsey - CB, Florida State

They finish retooling the secondary with Ramsey teaming with Jimmy Smith at cornerback. Alternative pick: Ronnie Stanley.

PICK

7

Ronnie Stanley - OT, Notre Dame

Tough choice with DeForest Buckner (DE) on the board, but OT is a greater need.

PICK

8

Vernon Hargreaves - CB, Florida

Fills a need they have at cornerback. Better prospect out of college than Joe Haden. Trade-up for QB did not work out.

PICK

9

Myles Jack - LB, UCLA

Might be the best defensive player on the board. They pass on Kevin Dodd, who would fill a bigger need (pass rusher).

PICK

10

DeForest Buckner - DE, Oregon

Best player on the board. Where will they play him? He helps them more at DE. Best position is DT.

PICK

11

A'Shawn Robinson - DT, Alabama

Just missed Buckner but Robinson gives them an excellent run defender in their 3-4 defense.

PICK

12

Kevin Dodd - DE, Clemson

Pass rush is their top priority. Dodd provides it.

PICK

13

Shaq Lawson - DE, Clemson

They continue to build a defensive line to beat Tom Brady and the Patriots.

PICK

14

Reggie Ragland - LB, Alabama

Biggest need on defense is MLB.

PICK

15

Jack Conklin - OT, Michigan State

They fill their RT need and still get all those extra picks.

PICK

16

Taylor Decker - OT, Ohio State

Fills a need to help protect Matt Stafford. Do they move Riley Reiff to the right side?

PICK

17

Leonard Floyd - OLB, Georgia

Athletic linebacker who can give them another pass rusher.

PICK

18

Noah Spence - OLB, Eastern Kentucky

After missing out on their OT, they choose instead to improve their pass rush.

PICK

19

Robert Nkemdiche - DT, Ole Miss

Buffalo sees too much talent to pass on him. Will help inside pass rush. Is Paxton Lynch a consideration here? QB and OLB are their biggest needs. No OLB to take here.

PICK

20

Darron Lee - LB, Ohio State

Athletic linebacker will give them the speed they need to improve their pass coverage.

PICK

21

Eli Apple - CB, Ohio State

They will take the best defensive player on the board. Alternative pick: defensive tackles Jarran Reed or Sheldon Rankins.

PICK

22

Corey Coleman - WR, Baylor

They need speed opposite DeAndre Hopkins.

PICK

23

Laquon Treadwell - WR, Ole Miss

Best receiver in this draft despite lack of top speed.

PICK

24

Will Fuller - WR, Notre Dame

Fills big need created by free-agent losses of Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu.

PICK

25

Artie Burns - CB, Miami

Some will say this is a reach but Burns is my next-best cornerback.

PICK

26

Germain Ifedi - OT, Texas A&M

Best OT left on the board.

PICK

27

Jarran Reed - DT, Alabama

Replaces B.J. Raji at NT. Excellent run-stopper. Possible trade-back if someone wants Paxton Lynch and they can still fill the need at NT.

PICK

28

William Jackson III - CB, Houston

Fills void left by Sean Smith.

PICK

29

Paxton Lynch - QB, Memphis

They don't need him to play now. Bruce Arians is good at developing quarterbacks.

PICK

30

Sheldon Rankins - DT, Louisville

Both starting defensive tackles are nearing free agency.

PICK

31

Kenny Clark - DT, UCLA

Do they trade up with Green Bay to get ahead of Arizona for Paxton Lynch?
