Show/Hide All Player Comments Rd (Ovr) Team Pos Name College Cls Height Weight 40
Show/Hide Player Comments 1st (6th) QB Blake Bortles Central Florida rJr 6'5" 232 lbs. 4.93

Analysis: The Texans have traded down a great pass rusher for the best pocket passer in the draft. Bortles has sneaky athleticism, on top of a great arm. He's got the size necessary for the hits he's going to take at the next level, and a strong and accurate arm to come with it.


Show/Hide Player Comments 2nd (1st) OT Morgan Moses Virginia Sr 6'6" 314 lbs. 5.20

Analysis: The Texans need to make sure they keep their new franchise QB intact for years to come, so selecting his personal bodyguard a round later might not seem like a bad idea. Moses is perfect to fill in the RT spot. He is big, strong, and a natural run blocker, his only downside being that he plays way too high and can't bend at the knees.


Show/Hide Player Comments 2nd (5th) TE Jace Amaro Texas Tech Jr 6'5 3/8" 265 lbs. 4.60

Analysis: Andre Johnson is getting old, and if they want to capitalise on his last years as a player, the Texans will need to get some weight off his back. Amaro, Texas Tech's best draft prospect to come out in a while, is exactly what Houston needs.


Show/Hide Player Comments 2nd (22nd) 34OLB Jeremiah Attaochu Georgia Tech Sr 6'3 1/4" 252 lbs. 4.57

Analysis: Philadelphia trades down to Houston's 1st in the 3rd, as well as their 6th. The Texans select Jeremiah Attaochu out of Georgia Tech, and create competition for the starting OLB jobs. Whitney Mercilus and Brooks Reed will have to bring their A game next season.


Show/Hide Player Comments 4th (1st) HB Terrance West Towson Jr 5'9 1/4" 225 lbs. 4.54




 
Show/Hide Player Comments 4th (35th) FS Kenny Ladler Vanderbilt Sr 6'0 1/8" 207 lbs. 4.62

I think Lawrence Virgil will be an undrafted free agent, he tries to play powerball, but doesn't have the size or strength for that. Also, isn't very good at avoiding the low blocks. The video used doesn't show great speed so DE or OLB would be an issue. Good hustle though.

Ah! I see you're a Jags fan. I picked Virgil in the 7th round for Jacksonville
because they are lacking depth at the DT position. The kid can either play DT or
DE as well, and with Bradley's defensive scheme, Virgil could backup Alualu at the
LDE spot, as well as bring competition at the DT spots.

This is a pretty good draft for the Rams. I just can't for the life of me see them selecting a WR in the 1st round (or early at all) again. They tried the spread concepts last year early after selecting Tavon Austin and then scrapped it pretty quickly to go back to Fisher's old run first philosophy. This is a make or break year for Brian Quick too, 2012's #33 overall pick. I also think Bullough is kind of a redundant pick.

The rest is really solid. I LOVE Greg Robinson. Joel Bitonio and Terrence Brooks make lots of sense. Although the Rams might use Greg Robinson at LG instead of RT, until Jake Long is gone. Fales, Gaffney, Swanson all picks I like. Colvin would be a nice pick to take a flier on late too.

Hello Ramzee!

I'm glad you like the draft, I put over two weeks to finally finish this draft.
As for the WR in the first round, I think it is a possibility. Sam Bradford is
in dire need of a number 1 receiver for his contract year, and I don't think
Pettis, Givens, Quick or Britt are it. They are all average at best receivers.
Austin is a strong player in the slot, and I believe Bailey may be the best
option at number 4.

As for the Rams linebacker situation, I think Skov could be the starter on the
right side, over Dunbar. Bullough fits well as a backup to Laurinaitis, as most
of the other linebackers on the roster are more suited to play on the outside.
