And then some guys are being advised by the NFL draft advisory board before making up their mind.
Still early in the process, but it seems this draft will be heavily dominated by juniors.
i think either clayborne, or kalil is a solid first round pick seing as we will get either the 2nd or 3rd overall pick in the draft, OR trade down and try to get more picks to fill the HUGE holes in our team (line and secondary) Blackmon would be nice but are main concerns should be lineman and secondary if AP wasn't such a beast our offense would be completely shut out every week and we are one of the worst if not absolute worst in Secondary. Asher Allen is a complete bust, Winfield is old and washed up, griffen isn't the same, cook (well we all know what happened to him) and safeties are atrocious.
But going trough the draft and free agency, the depth seems higher at WR and CB, so in my eyes Kalil has to be the pick, if we have the chance..
Well, with the win on Sunday against the Redskins that completely takes us out of the 'Toilet Bowl' so we will pick 3rd if the rams lose again next week. Can only hope that we will get Kalil, if not gotta go with clayborne our need for coverage is too great.
I think that the Rams very well might take Justin Blackmon (whose stock I think will rise during workouts and combines) but they are definitely going to be leaning toward Kalil I think. So, if the Colts win and everyone the played this year wins and we lose and everyone we played this year loses, we have a shot at getting that No. 2. :)

I know we hate his character, but if Cook gets his shit together and remains on the team ... a starting CB pair of Chris Cook and Morris Claiborne should be pretty solid.
We are probably drafting 6th
