We are running through our FanSided NFL Mock draft at the moment. This is where the editors around the network make the selections for their teams. We will be publishing the entire mock when it is complete on this site and will post each selection individually as they come in as well.
Here are the selections that have already been made by our FanSided editors:
|1. Houston Texans||Jadeveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina|
With the 2nd pick in the NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams select…
Khalil Mack, LB, Buffalo
Selection made by Nathan Kearns, Blaine Grisak, Editors of the Ramblin Fan
Here is their analysis on the selection:
The Rams have a plethora of options here, they could trade back and pick up more picks or take an elite player. Although Sammy Watkins and Greg Robinson have been popular choices, we’re going to go in a different direction with Khalil Mack.
Mack is explosive, he can pass rush as well as cover, and overall he is just a great athlete. He did play in a smaller conference, which can be a little concerning, but he had a solid game against Ohio St. last year.
The addition of Mack on this already good defense will give offenses headaches for years to come and hopefully help the Rams compete in the tough NFC West
