16. St. Louis Rams-Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama

The Rams could use a playmaker at wide receiver, but offensive line is a big need as well.

With Patterson and Tavon Austin off the board, it’s likely that the Rams will use their second first round pick to address this need. Keenan Allen out of Cal is a good option, but Chance Warmack may be better. St. Louis’ offensive line allowed 52 sacks, which was tied for the most in the league. Warmack is a good interior lineman, and while D.J Fluker is more versatile, there’s no need for Fluker’s versatility if Jake Long stays healthy.

Warmack is a complete player with decent size, and he can definitely help protect Bradford. Warmack is also known for his run-blocking, which is also needed in St. Louis. Steven Jackson is gone, and Daryl Richardson is unproven. So, if Warmack can continue to perform well in all aspects of blocking, he can pay dividends for a needy offensive line.
