Yes, I know the Rams are going to trade this pick! I get that. And it’s likely going to be to the Browns. Or the Redskins, or to whoever wants Robert Griffin 3 the most, but I don’t do trades in my mock. So let’s look at where they might go, if they don’t deal the pick.
2. St. Louis Rams, Matt Kalil, OT, USC
Stl. team needs: WR, DT, OT, DB, FS
You can say the Rams have bigger needs at other positions but Kalil is one of those franchise building LTs, as he’s one of the best OL prospects to come along in quite some time. We all know QBs are the highest paid, the men who protect the blind side of those signal callers are the next highest paid.
Kalil is a 6-7, 295 junior tackle from Corona, CA. He may have to add some muscle weight to become a star at the next level, or maybe over to a different position. Kalil blocked a PAT against Notre Dame last season and shows a lot of agility and movement for a big guy.

33. St. Louis Rams, Kendall Wright, WR/KR, Baylor
Rams need another vertical weapon, RG3?s running mate who helped him get the Heisman is the most decorated WR in Baylor Bears history. Had a bad forty time, but look how fast he plays. Michael Floyd of Notre Dame runs a faster 40, but doesn’t move as fast on field.
