The 2012 season is over, and off-season moves will commence shortly, which brings me to my second most favorite part of the football off-season, preparation for the NFL Draft.

I will provide differing versions as time moves forward, underclassmen declare or decide to remain in school, injuries that occur, and under and over-shoots at the combine, leading right up to the Draft.

I've made some modifications following the Super Bowl and free agents set to depart, and also to correct for some typos in V1.5.  My second mock(V1.5) for Football Nation went good, so I'm confident you will enjoy my updated V2.0, non consisting of both 1st and 2nd round predictions.

No way the Cowboys go defense with thier first two picks. Have you seen thier offensive line? They have 4 starters that should be working for UPS. They have to draft offensive lineman with the first two picks. This is the best oline draft I've ever seen. If they don't draft oline early they are dead.

They aren't in position to get an offensive lineman without reaching, and their defense is worse, no way you argue that point. They can't get one in the first round, so the get a damn good NT that they badly need as well. Offensive linemen can be drafted in rounds 3-7. So you take the BPA and they need defensive help badly, go defense first two picks and get two good linemen im the following round. I have them getting olinmen in round three, which will be published after the combines. The pick you are complaining about are solid picks for a very weak defense
Aside from spencer.

Really? The Rams take not one but TWO defensive ends in the first round? TWO!?

Despite the fact that they have to first round DE's in the last five years, both of whom have been successful?

Despite the fact that they finished tied for first in the league in sacks?

Despite the fact that they need offensive lineman, a safety or two, a tight end, and an outside linebacker?

Do you really stand by that prediction?

Really?

I'm with Jason here. Chris long signed an extension this year and Quinn is an up and coming pass rusher. At WR Smith will be cut and Amendola and Gibson are free agents and Young is no guarantee to make the roster so don't count out drafting a WR. And finally S and outside linebacker are the biggest needs on D and OL on offense. BPA from S, WR, OL, or OLB and you have a more plausible Rams draft than what you have here.

Thanks for your responses, I'll take them into consideration for a revised mock 2.5 next week.

If we're making ridiculous predictions for the Rams can we add Cody Zeller and re-draft JaMarcus Russell?

Thanks for your response. I appreciate it.

Atl needs a DE and a DT but I don't see them taking a 26 year old player in the 1st round. If there isn't the right guy there at 30 then they should trade down a few picks because they have more needs than picks.

How old was Weeden when drafted again? Weinke? Not abnormal if the kid is that good, and Hunt is that good. The average nfl career is how long? Oh yeah, less than 5 years.

Correct BUT a 1st round pick isn't supposed to have an average length career.

No? Then you should take that up with the NFL. QBs should be left out of the overall % of players.

The lovely part about being journalist, is the fact you can never make everybody happy. Sorry Rams fans, but quit acting like children over it. Try being classy instead.

No way Ted Thompson takes a WR with his first pick--expect an LB, DE or O-lineman first, maybe an WR, depending on talent left when GB makes it's fourth pick or later.

Fair enough.

Thanks Seth but I have to disagree with the Packers selections. No way would they take a WR in both the 1st and 2nd rounds.

Right. Thanks for the response, I appreciate it.

Its not about staying classy as a Rams fan...it's about how someone who runs a website actually lets you post stuff on it. Did you ever answer why the rams are drafting to DE when they tied for the league lead in sacks?...didnt think so....why dont you justify the picks?

They appreciate it when their writers make an attempt to be purely creative. Look at the controversial responses for example, people are talking, can't deny that. I did 2.0 as a creative one, 2.5 was just submitted and is far less creative and far more accurate, like 1.5, but two rounds. I justify the picks cause I was taking a completely creative approach rather than anal, which is what I did in the next edition which will publish later today. I appreciate your response and assure you in the 2.5 (realistic not creative) edition you will be very happy as a Rams fan. I do enjoy controversial endings.

Well, Mr. Hawkins did ask for it, can't get too upset about that response... careful what you ask for...

I like Rams fans, they're good people, but they are worse than Browns fans when it comes to sensitivity.

I like Okafor and the fact Texans need help up the middle. Who the wide body NT will be, remains to be seen, but will need to be an athlete. Personally, I think they have their man already in OG Brandon Harris who could be the next Henry Melton

Yeah, and right now J. Williams would be a potential reach pick, but I see them needing a LB in the first round, for the very reason in the slide. But, if Short or Logan falls they are all over it.

check that, Brandon Brooks, BTW he ran a 4.9; 32" vertical and put a Steelers coach down who was standing on the sled when BB punched it.

I had heard about this from a friend three houses down (big Steelers fan and thought he was being sarcastic. But 4.9 and a 32 vertical for a big man is very good. They should look into that idea.
