FanSided NFL Mock Draft: St. Louis Rams Select Khalil Mack


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

    Nathan and Blaine: all I have to say is “YES”! Guys like Mack don’t come around very often. With him, we could stay in our base defense more, which means we keep our best athletes on the field longer. I bet if you knew one player that our conference foes don’t want us to draft, it’s Mack. Great job, gentleman!

    i have said for a month that if the rams do not trade out my preference for the #2 pick is mack robinson and then watkins my rationale is simple give the weapon to the man most likely to properly use it (gregg williams) not the man who continually proves he does not deserve new weapons(shotty) end of rant!!
