The only consensus for the Rams' first-round pick: there is no consensus. Many feel the Rams should take a receiver, while others feel they should take Marcus Mariota if he falls. Others still feel they need to take an offensive lineman. The Rams only have two starters returning from last year's o-line. Scherff can fill in immediately as a starter either at guard or tackle. His versatility gives even more reason to draft him. Scherff has the feet and agility to do very well as a pass protector and is strong enough to be effective in the run game.

Round 2: Dorial Green-Beckham, WR, Missouri
This will be the steal of the draft if Green-Beckham falls to the Rams. He started his career at Missouri before transferring to Oklahoma but never actually played at there. If not for all the off-the-field problems, DGB would be a guaranteed first rounder. He has the speed and skill set to be a No. 1 receiver in the NFL for a long time. He would be a great target for Nick Foles and would give the Rams a true downfield threat. Players seem to like and respect Jeff Fisher, so this could a good fit for a player with some character questions.

Round 3: Brett Hundley, QB, UCLA
The Rams currently have three quarterbacks on their roster in Nick Foles, Case Keenum and Austin Davis. None is signed beyond 2015. The Rams need to start planning for the future now, so taking a QB is a necessity in this year’s draft. After Winston and Mariota there is a drop-off in talent, but there are some strong arms out there. Hundley is one of them. He's a project who needs some help with his pocket passing, but his athleticism and arm strength are NFL-ready. The Rams would be lucky to get him in the third round and prepare him for the 2016 season.

Round 4: Eric Rowe, CB, Utah
The Rams certainly could use a cornerback. While their defense is strong, the secondary needs an upgrade. Rowe, a tall and athletic corner, would be a nice fit and a steal in the fourth round. He started his career at free safety before moving to corner his senior year, so the Rams would gain some flexibility with him as well. He is a very physical player and could match up with those big receivers on the outside. He will likely need some work in zone coverage, but it would be a good investment in a potentially excellent player.

Round 6: Austin Shepherd, OT, Alabama
The Rams will spend multiple picks on their offensive line. Shepherd is a very solid run blocker but will need to improve on his pass protection at the next level. He has active hands and is fairly athletic for a 6-foot-4, 315-pound hulk. Shepherd has a great attitude on and off the field and will come in and work hard from day one.

Round 7: Ben Heeney, ILB, Kansas
Despite signing LB Akeem Ayers early in the offseason, the Rams could use some depth at the linebacker position. Heeney led the Jayhawks in tackles the last three seasons and led the NCAA in solo tackles in 2014 with 7.3 per game. He is undersized as far as linebackers go, which could be a big reason for his fall in the draft. He will need to improve on his coverage if he wants to be an every-down player, but the Rams would be happy to have him to add depth in the seventh round.
