#2 St Louis Rams: Jadeveon Clowney, DE S. Carolina 

Rory’s Take: The Rams have two exceptional pass rushers right now, but they may have to lose one in order to keep the other. If they instead are able to find cap space somewhere else to keep both, why not add more pass rush to dominate in the difficult NFC West?

Chase’s Take: Clowney recently said that he wants to be the number one pick while at the Senior Bowl where he was interviewing with teams despite not participating in the practices/game at Mobile. I don’t see him falling too far as it is looking more and more like NFL scouts are evaluating Clowney ahead of the quarterbacks as we expected way back at the start of the college season. Like I said, I see Clowney going first and if not he won’t be waiting to hear his name called for long.

    The most logical choice for the raiders would be to trade back,twice if they can and select the best pass rusher or defensive lineman available.that whole selecting WR sammy Watkins is not an option and would cripple the rebuilding process severely.Bulking up the “trenches” on both sides of the ball is a must this time around.kony ealy,ra’shede hageman,louis nix lll,stephon tuitt and jackson jeffcoat would be an instant upgrade to the lack of a pass rush.

    I agree, if they can get a decent edge pass rusher in free agency, draft another one and move Houston to 3 technique (he would dominate guards). Raiders have personnel to run 3-4. All three Super Bowl wins by Oakland they ran a 3-4, time to go back!!

    No way twice! Keep it low, pick up pics for both sides in trenches and start building. Our biggest problems begin with no pass protection or pass rush. This has to be priority and pic up off wire skilled positions and sign our keepers and build deep at same time. Were to shallow across the board.

    So I take it you disagree with the idea of Raiders drafting Khalil Mack?
