The 2014 NFL Draft is still over a month away but the speculation about who's going where is higher than ever.
And in the rush for quotes and possible hints, head coach Jeff Fisher may have just let on who the St. Louis Rams will be taking in the first round.
The Rams are in possession of the second overall pick in the draft thanks to Robert Griffin III deal back in 2012, and they have plenty of options available to them.
There are four elite players in the draft that all have clear star quality; Jadeveon Clowney, Khalil Mack, Greg Robinson and Sammy Watkins.
And Fisher was recently interviewed gushing on the latter of that bunch, wide receiver Watkins.
“He’s very, very explosive,” Fisher said on Thursday. “I mean, he’s good with the ball. He’s good without the ball. He’s one of those guys that can pluck a ball at his ankles running full speed. He’s gonna be a very, very good pro.”
The Rams have been projected to take Greg Robinson in every major draft board since the turn of the year. But it doesn't beggar belief that they could be set to move away from all that expectation and pick the former Clemson man.
A whole host of scenarios can play out in free agency and on draft day itself that would lead the Rams to doing any number of things with their first round pick, and drafting Watkins is one of them in play.
