Steuber's Second Round Mock Draft

The St. Louis Rams kick off the second frame of the NFL Draft and add an offensive playmaker to go along with their new franchise quarterback, Sam Bradford. Find out who they're targeting inside...

Now that the NFL Scouting Combine has concluded, and the big money free agents are off the market, the NFL universe shifts its focus to the Pro Days of this year’s top draft prospects. A lot has changed over the last month and when you observe my most recent attempt to forecast the future of 64 prospects, you will notice some different names and a major shakeup throughout.

The impact that the underclassmen will have on this year's draft is obvious. There are plenty of underclassmen to choose from, but unlike the first round where I projected 19 underclassmen to be selected, only ten come off the board in the second frame.

The St. Louis Rams kick off the second round and target an offensive player…
