#2 St Louis Rams: Jake Mathews, OT TAMU

Rory’s Take: I continue to go back and forth between quarterback and top offensive tackle. Ultimately I think this pick gets traded, but for now Mathews makes a ton of sense if the Rams still believe in Bradford which I am unsure about.

Chase’s Take: I think the Rams believe in Bradford as much as they did when they drafted him first overall, but they have concerns about his durability. That signals to picking better offensive linemen like Matthews and waiting until the later rounds to explore an Arron Murray/Zach Mettenberger type of backup to build upon should Bradford go down. Keep in mind, they can still cut him next year.

    that would be perfect for the raiders if clowney was there to trade down with someone else in the top 10 and get an extra 2nd and 3rd also if Watkins is still available with the next pick (if they were to trade down) then they should trade down one more time and get another 2nd and 3rd round pick and possibly draft the best available wr with the next pick and or trade down one more time to get another 2 and 3 or 4 depending on where they are and get the best available player at a need position and do something special in the 2nd and 3rd rounds, I know its not madden and stuff but its possible especially with the talent pool of this draft
