also Gil Brandt 2 wr's I'd like ater rd 1 Shepard and Tyler Boyd(rams worked out)

Gil Brandt ‏@Gil_Brandt Mar 24

One of the best pro days I've ever witnessed. Wentz reminds me of Joe Flacco. (great minds think alike)He had 2 55-yard passes that were as pretty as I've seen.

Kayarris Garrett gave William Jackson III a real handful when they met. And I think Jackson is best CB in the draft.

I just don't see too much of comparison between Wentz and Flacco, other than their height.
Both small school, strong arms? ok.
Flacco was an un-athletic been pole. Wentz is much more sturdy and athletic.

Let's say the Rams first 4th round pick rolls around and the following are still on the board:

Jayon Smith LB
R. Higgins WR
T. Higbee TE
J. Adams TE
P. Perkins RB

Which one do you take. Also, assuming the rest are still there for the Rams second 4th round pick, who do you take?
