Dec 31, 2013; Atlanta, GA, USA; Texas A&M Aggies offensive linesman Jake Matthews (75) sets to pass block Duke Blue Devils defensive end Kenny Anunike (84) during the second quarter in the 2013 Chick-fil-a Bowl at the Georgia Dome. Mandatory Credit: John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

#2 St Louis Rams: Jake Matthews, OT TAMU 

Rory’s Take: This pick has seen a lot of change but in this scenario going back to the original idea of a left tackle makes a lot of sense. The loss of Saffold could be significant and would require the immediate addition of a talented replacement.

Chase’s Take: Holding the #13 pick St. Louis can use this #2 pick to either trade down or take the best left tackle available if they choose to not load up on a position they are already set at with Clowney and stick with Sam Bradford at QB for the rest of his contract. Matthews is our consensus best LT available so he lands at the deuce spot this week.

    With holes all over the team, and having 2 players who show great potential, and a ton of talent available in the round you have the raiders wasting the 5th pick of the draft on a TE that even in the best evaluations of him have a mid to late first round (I have seen 15 as the Highest) yet we would waste the 5th pick on him with a host of other players and holes???

    Sammy watkins to the brown when they have no qb & a tight end at #5 to the raiders that have no qb or pass rush.. I guess they really let any idiot post an article nowadays huh? Are you guys hiring? My cousin with down syndrome is looking for a job.

  • Sebastian Cosentino

    So Derek Carr to Oakland in round 2. I’m jiggy with it.

  • Rees Britton

    What about David Ausberry? They had high hopes for him before he hurt his shoulder. Now with Rivera emerging as a solid TE, why in gods name would we pick a TE?

  • Dean Thomas

    I’d like to see Oakland address the OL in free agency (some good ones out there), load up defense through the draft and retain good players, and perhaps bring in Freeman at QB. I was watching his games from a few years ago over the weekend, he looked pretty damn good when Olsen was in Tampa.
