NFL Mock Draft 2013: Rams select Chance Warmack and Cordarrelle Patterson

St. Louis fills two big needs in SB Nation's latest mock draft.

After trading away the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams now own two picks in the first round of this year's draft.

Rams fans have had plenty of reasons to be glued to mock drafts this offseason, with two of the first 22 picks to speculate on.

In SB Nation's latest mock draft, which was a collaborative effort between myself and Dan Kadar, the Rams selected Chance Warmack at No. 16 and Cordarrelle Patterson at No. 22. Here are Kadar's explanations for those picks.

By the end of last season, the Rams moved Robert Turner to left guard and he didn't do a lot to keep the job. Warmack is the draft's best guard prospect and just as good as David DeCastro last year. Warmack is the better run blocker of the two and hard to push off the line of scrimmage.

No Rams receiver broke 700 yards receiving last season and the team doesn't a player that projects as a No. 1 target. Patterson can be the lead receiver for St. Louis. He has the speed to get vertical and should be a star at the Combine. If St. Louis wants to get inventive, Patterson can be dangerous in the running game as well.
