Less than two weeks to the 2019 NFL Draft.This week’s Monday mock from Mocking the Draft’s Dan Kadar does help solidify the consensus in the top half dozen or so picks. We’re at a point now where those seems to be agreed upon across nearly every major mock draft. The real turning point may come via the New York Giants. They’re currently at #6, but they could certainly trade up to ensure the QB of their choosing after the Arizona Cardinals select Oklahoma Sooners QB Kyler Murray...if that’s even what the Cards do at the top of the draft. What makes the Giants so fascinating as a draft pivot is that their top three needs are the top three positions of value: quarterback, left tackle and edge rusher. But at least they took a running back at #2 overall last year. Good work.Kadar leans into the 2018 Clemson Tigers’ historic defensive line with three members of the unit going in the top 25. It’d be pretty special to see that happen coming off of their championship win and will be a wild storyline in 2019 as they have to replace all four members (and two starting linebackers who could be drafted) even as they head into the season as the presumptive preseason #1 team in the rankings.Anywho, back to the NFL and the mock.Kadar has the Los Angeles Rams going with:Fine by me. I’d still push to trade back, but were this to happen I wouldn’t gripe too loudly.What say you, Rams fans? Week 6 finds the Los Angeles Rams heading to Denver with sub-freezing temperatures and snow expected at Mile High Stadium. The Rams are coming off a narrow 33-31 escape at division rival Seattle in Week 5 while the Denver Broncos got their asses handed to them by the New York Jets John Johnson Jersey , 34-16, allowing 323 rushing yards in the process. In a game where altitude and the elements figure to play a significant role, here are five Rams who will need to heat up to beat the Denver deep freeze.CB Marcus PetersPeters’ performance in Seattle left a lot to be desired. While questions remain about his strained calf, his gambling tendencies were exposed, as he was officially dinged for all three Russell Wilson passing TDs. Injured or not, his eyes were in the Seattle backfield and not on his man, and when they were, he was flagged for holding twice. To his credit, he’s owning it:Despite his obvious playmaking skills Gerald Everett Jersey , Peters’ reputation as a “win some / lose some” CB a la Janoris Jenkins was on full display. At less than 100%, he lost a lot more than he won. Let’s hope his familiarity with Denver WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders helps him get back on track Sunday, or the Rams could be in for another shootout.WR Cooper Kupp & WR Brandin CooksI know, 2-for-1 is a cop out, but these guys deserve to be mentioned here as they both missed practice on Wednesday while working through the concussion protocol. Kupp’s injury was apparently from hitting his head on the turf, whereas Cooks’ was downright scary as he appeared to be knocked out cold from a questionable hit by Seattle S Tedric Thompson. As of this writing, it looks like the Rams have a good chance at returning both players for Sunday’s game, which will sure make life easier for Jared Goff against the Broncos’ middle-of-the-road pass D. (Note: If either of these guys can’t go, WR Josh Reynolds would vault to the top of this list)RB Todd GurleyAs previously noted John Kelly Jersey , Denver allowed 323 yards on the ground last week against Jets RBs Isiah Crowell and Bilal Powell. Is this finally the week Todd Gurley busts a long one?! A glorious flurry of snow and dreadlocks and Denver defenders flopping around like creamsicles?! Let’s hope so. He’s a safe bet to find the end zone a few times here, but I’m personally looking for Gurley to have one of those truly dominant games in terms of yards from scrimmage. In inclement weather, and facing the league’s 30th ranked rush defense, he very well could.CB Troy HillA surprise starter ahead of CB Sam Shields last week, 4th-year reserve CB Troy Hill performed admirably in Seattle as his 80.1 ranking by PFF was the highest of all Rams’ DBs. Now, as we all know, PFF rankings can be a tad misleading — this is likely more the result of Seattle’s penchant for throwing at Marcus Peters than anything Hill did or didn’t do. One thing he can’t do this week is body-slam a receiver for a bonehead personal foul call. Still, if Hill can contain WR Emmanuel Sanders (which is a tall order), he can contribute positively to Peters’ risk/reward ratio — and force Case Keenum and company into a more one-dimensional gameplan.DL Michael BrockersMuch has been made of the Rams’ iffy 18th-ranked rush defense John Franklin-Myers Jersey , yet most of the finger pointing has been aimed at Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh and our LB corps. Not sure why Brockers is getting a pass here. The 7th-year pro is pacing slightly behind last year’s career high of 54 total tackles, and has tallied one sack on the season. He’s been solid thus far, but hasn’t made many splash plays — I expected him to be the biggest beneficiary of the Donald/Suh tandem, and that simply hasn’t been the case. If the Rams are to contain Denver RBs Phillip Lindsay and Royce Freeman on Sunday, a big day for big Brock would sure help.
