The Senior Bowl is one of the top events of the draft season and features many of the best prospects in the upcoming draft. The Los Angeles Rams and general manager Les Snead have put a focus on the Senior Bowl in recent years. With that being the case, I have put together a Mock Draft featuring only players from the senior bowl. My draft simulation was done using The Draft Network’s Mock Draft simulator.

57th Overall – Dillon Radunz, OT, North Dakota State

In this mock, I just missed out on Creed Humphrey who also had a very good week and can play guard or center.

Radunz is a good player and fits the mold of the what the Rams like in their offensive tackles. The offensive lineman from North Dakota State has had a pretty good week at the Senior Bowl, taking snaps at both guard and tackle. This is a player that the Rams could start at guard and then move to tackle in presumably a year when Andrew Whitworth finally retires.

He’s had his moments where he’s been overpowered or gotten out of position, but for the most part, he consistently was winning his reps. Holding penalties would also be a concern of mine with him. However, more times than not, he’s put together very good tape down in Mobile. If he fell to the Rams at 57, they’d be getting a very good player.

88th Overall – Quincy Roche, EDGE, Miami

Roche has been one of the best edge players down in Mobile this week. A has a good combination of speed and power and uses his hands well in his moves. The Miami edge rusher will be able to come in and be a three-down player as he also plays well as a run defender.

The Rams are in need of an edge player in the draft as Leonard Floyd may not be back and Terrell Lewis was consistently hurt. Roche would fill a big hole for the Rams and fit perfectly in their 3-4.

100th Overall – Amari Rodgers, WR, Clemson

The Rams need a vertical deep threat and a punt returner. Amari Rodgers can do both. Rodgers fills the hole that Josh Reynolds will leave during free agency and add another diminution with his vertical game.

Rodgers has been one of the most impressive wide receivers during practices at the Senior Bowl this week. He’s consistently been making plays and giving defensive backs trouble. He also seems to have a good feel for finding and sitting in the zone. The Clemson wide receiver is only 5’10 and has the speed to beat defenses deep, but he also has the frame to go up and get the ball and be physical when he needs to. Rodgers gives the Rams a piece that they simply don’t have currently on offense.

103rd Overall – Osa Odighizuwa, DL, UCLA

Odighizuwa has had a really good week at the Senior Bowl. This is a versatile player who has lined up all over the defensive line and won at each spot. Now, he isn’t Aaron Donald, but he’s a player that can be used in the same type of ways that Donald was last year. Put him on the defensive line with a good matchup and watch him win.

There’s a good chance that the Rams lose Morgan Fox to free agency. Odighizuwa gives the Rams depth and someone that they can rotate in and become a full-time starter when Brockers leaves within the next two years.

138th Overall – David Moore, iOL, Grambling State

I missed out on Creed Humphrey earlier, but Moore is a good consolation prize later in the draft. There is without question that David Moore was one of, if not my favorite player in Mobile this week. Moore was constantly winning every single rep. Very rarely did he get beat. Moore was very good in pass protection, thrived in 1-on-1s and did well in the run game as well. He also switched between center and guard all week.

The Rams need depth on the interior of their offensive line. They could lose Blyth in free agency which opens a hole at center. Moore could come in and fill that spot or if the Rams move Corbett to center, Moore could fill in at guard.

205th Overall – Marquez Stevenson, WR, Louisville

I just missed out on my guy Demetric Felton from UCLA at this spot. Felton had a very good week in Mobile and recorded the fastest speed on day one of practice which is something that the Rams lack on offense. Additionally, Felton can play running back and wide receiver. He’d be a fun player in McVay’s offense. A similar player to what the Rams wanted Tavon Austin to be, but better.

With Felton gone, I have settled for Stevenson. Again, the Rams lack speed on offense and that’s what you’re getting with Steveson. He’s a true vertical threat that any defense would have to account for. He didn’t have the most impressive week at the Senior Bowl but he didn’t disappoint either.

Stevenson is someone that the Rams would draft late on day three for his athleticism and hope that he develops into a solid wide receiver. The skills are there, he just needs some refining.

249th Overall – K.J. Britt, LB, Auburn

For the second year in a row, I have the Rams drafting a linebacker in the seventh round. It didn’t work last season with Clay Johnson, but Britt could be a different story. Britt isn’t fluid and he’s a day three depth player that the Rams would need to develop.
