The St. Louis Rams suffered elimination from the NFC playoff race several weeks ago, but the season didn't have a good feel from the start. At 2-13, fans have been planning and scouting with an eye on top prospects in the NFL draft for quite a while, and SB Nation's Rams blog, Turf Show Times, has created a mock draft to get fans experimenting with the process. This 2012 mock draft is filled with trades to get extra picks and is underpinned by the concept that the organization will have to target offensive linemen early to overcome disappointing prospect Jason Smith, so it might be better to take a look at the names and get an idea of what positions make sense for the team to go after in the upcoming amateur draft.
Jonathan Martin - Offensive Tackle
Alfonzo Dennard - Cornerback
Courtney Upshaw - Defensive End/Outside Linebacker
Trent Richardson - Running Back
Zach Brown - Outside Linebacker
Dontari Poe - Defensive Tackle
Marcus Forston - Defensive Tackle
Brandon Mosley - Offensive Lineman
Aaron Dobson - Wide Receiver
