In BBV Mock Draft, Rams select ...

New, comments

We are two picks into our Big Blue View Community Mock Draft, and our man 'Woogie526,' selecting for the St. Louis Rams, is already bumming that the guy he wanted -- Jason Smith -- was taken at No. 1.

So, 'Woogie' had to alter his plan. Here is what he did.

2. St. Louis Rams -- Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest

Well this decision was originally going to be a selfish one by the new coach. However, with Jason Smith off the board, it became a no-brainer. I choose Aaron Curry, LB, Wake Forest. He would be the brain of Spag's defense. In the crazy schemes Spags uses, he needs a general on the field to organize blitzes and coverages.

[NOTE: I am already receiving mid-round selections. Let's not do that, gang. Wait and see who is taken by the teams in front of you, then send in your pick. Too many variables the other way.]

1. Detroit Lions (selected by 'cjmulrain')
Jason Smith, OT, Baylor: Conventional wisdom says that the Lions are going to select quarterback Matt Stafford of Georgia, but since I'm running the show I'm going in a different direction. I'm not convinced that Stafford is going to be a star QB in the league, and when you're taking a guy with the first pick I don't think you can have any doubts about it, especially when you're coming off the first ever 0-16 season in NFL History. Even if Stafford does have the tools to be a great quarterback, the Lions have no semblance of an O-line to protect him, putting him at risk to develop David Carr syndrome if he were brought in to play right away. To address this, I went with Smith, who profiles as a potential franchise left tackle. I strongly believe in the philosophy of building a football team from the lines out and think a team as devoid of talent as the Lions would be better served with a rock at left tackle. I was tempted by Aaron Curry but think there will be better value on the defensive side of the ball at the 20th pick than there will be on the O-line. As for QB, let's just say that I'm not too optimistic about the prospects for the 2009 Lions and like the thought of Colt McCoy in silver and blue.
