2013 NFL Mock Draft: Rams have lots of options with two first-round picks

The Rams are in an enviable position, with two first-round picks in the draft. Let's see what mock drafts have them doing.

The St. Louis Rams hold two first-round picks in the 2013 draft. Thanks to last year's Robert Griffin III trade, they have both the 16th and 22nd overall picks. Let's take a look at a possible draft-day scenario.

SB Nation's Dan Kadar projects the Rams to take Alabama guard Chance Warmack 16th and California wide receiver Keenan Allen 22nd. Warmack is the best guard prospect in years, and it would be a minor miracle if he falls this far:

If Warmack happens to be around when the Rams pick, they should set a land speed record for getting their pick to the commissioner's podium. Plug Warmack into the left guard position, get him an extra short, stomach-showing jersey and forget about the position for a decade.

As for Allen, Kadar isn't too high on last year's rookies, Brian Quick and Chris Givens:

[Allen is] a big target who can play vertically and work underneath routes. An improved line and receiving corps could be a blessing and a curse for Sam Bradford. If he struggles with a receiver like Allen and the Rams could begin the process of looking for a new quarterback.
