Yes, this mock NFL Draft suggests the Patriots end up winning Super Bowl LIII. But before you get mad about that, it’s just the order based off odds from Odds Shark.
And Odds Shark has the Pats as favorites.
Since we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s move on to the Rams’ first pick. Los Angeles is pretty well stocked on the offensive side of the ball, at least at the skill positions. Yet that offensive line is aging and needs to get younger and more athletic. Defensively, there’s a good chance defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and EDGE Dante Fowler depart in free agency. And the Rams haven’t had a solid outside edge rusher on a consistent basis for some time now.
That said, keeping that offense functioning well should remain a priority. Veteran offensive tackle Andrew Whitworth just turned 37 years old and will need to be replaced sooner than later. And with a pretty hefty drop off in O-line prospects after this, the Rams make their move and grab Ole Miss tackle Greg Little.
Little can be found on a number of big boards within the top 15, so stealing him towards the end of Round 1 would give L.A. tremendous value.
