With the 22nd pick of the 2013 Music City Miracles Mock Draft, the St Louis Rams (represented by StPrattrick) select:

Larry Warford, OG, University of Kentucky

From StPrattrick:

I know this was somewhat of a “reach”, this was actually a really tough pick, but I think this is a player that comes in and immediately improves a glaring problem with the Rams; the O-line.
I was debating on going D-line, but they already have 3 previous 1st round picks on their line, finished the season leading the NFL in sacks... but were only 15th against the run. ONLY.
No, they need their O-line fixed and now. Warford is that guy that can do that, immediately.
The Rams lost Robert Turner though FA (to us, SUCCESS!) leaving a gaping hole that may be too deep for Rok Watkins or Shelley Smith to fill.
Enter Larry Warford:

Strengths:
  • Powerful run-blocker
  • Strong pass-protector
  • Good athlete
  • Mirrors speed-rushers
  • Quick feet
  • Developed run-blocking technique
  • Excellent in short yardage
  • Mobility to hit blocks downfield
  • Pulls well
  • Anchors well against bull-rushers
  • Recoverability
  • Strong hands
  • Sustains blocks
  • Durable
  • Experienced
  • Scheme versatility
Weaknesses:
  • Must maintain conditioning
  • Should continue to work on knee bend
  • Not a potential tackle
