According to recent mock drafts, the Rams could use their two first round picks in the 2013 NFL Draft on offensive linemen.
The St. Louis Rams have two first round picks in the 2013 NFL Draft, and recent mock drafts have them making additions to the offensive line.
In his latest mock, updated on Dec. 31, CBSSports.com's Rob Rang has the Rams selecting junior offensive tackle Jake Matthews from Texas A&M with the 16th overall pick. Dane Brugler, a draft analyst also with CBSSports.com, sees St. Louis taking Eric Fisher, a senior offensive tackle from Central Michigan, with the same pick.
The two differ with the Rams' second first round pick however, as Rang has St. Louis sticking with the offensive linemen theme, taking senior guard Chance Warmack from Alabama with the 21st overall selection (the actual pick, obtained from the Washington Redskins, could change depending on Washington's playoff results). Brugler, on the other hand, projects the Rams going with junior free safety Eric Reid from LSU.
St. Louis surrendered 35 sacks in the 2012 regular season, a total which was 19th-most in the league.
