With the No. 16 pick in the 2013 Cincy Jungle Mock Draft, epk1979 selected for the Saint Louis Rams, and with the 16th overall pick, the Rams select....

Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas

From epk1979:

In 2012, the Rams made a huge turn around in Jeff Fishers first year as coach. Finishing the year 7-8-1 was a drastic improvement over there 2011 record of 2-14. They played very well in the division, beating Seattle and San Francisco. Despite having a young and improving roster, they could still use upgrades at outside linebacker, offensive line, wide receiver and safety. Filling these holes would go a long way in helping the Rams stay competitive with Seattle and San Francisco.

The selection of Kenny Vaccaro would add another young defensive back to a very talented unit. After losing Craig Dahl to the 49ers and releasing Quinton Mikel, the safety position for the Rams is very thin, in depth and talent. With Darian Stewart penciled in to start at strong safety, Vaccaro could come in on day one and start at free safety. Vaccaro would provide versatility and a physical presence to the Rams secondary. He plays well in the slot and on the line of scrimmage and is a excellent blitzer. He can be used in a variety of ways and the improving Rams defense will benefit from drafting a player with Vaccaro's skill set.
