The Detroit Lions, as expected, just made Matthew Stafford the first pick of the draft.

The St. Louis Rams are now on the clock.

The Rams are thought to struggling to decide between the tackles Jason Smith and Eugene Monroe. Smith has the higher upside. Monroe is the safer pick due to his experience at tackle and guard.

The Rams are trying to create interest in their pick by talking up Mark Sanchez, even, reportedly attempting to fly him in to St. Louis.

Expect the Rams ultimately to take Jason Smith if they are unable to entice a team to trade up.
