Carson Wentz, quarterback, North Dakota State
With an obvious need at quarterback, the Rams are rushing to the podium to select the signal-caller out of North Dakota State, Carson Wentz.
Wentz who is regarded by many as the top quarterback in this year's class would be a steal at 15. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the Rams traded up on draft day to get the Bison or Jared Goff - after all, they possess two picks in the second round (43 & 45). Set to begin their second stint in LA, 8-8 Fisher and Les Snead need to find their quarterback of the future, and fast.
That said, should they stay put and if neither of Goff nor Wentz are available (which is likely), this mock draft GM was prepared to nab Paxton Lynch, let him sit for a year, and then take Michael Thomas at 43 and Ryan Kelly at 45. However it shakes out, there is no question the Rams' quarterback position will be a major storyline on Hard Knocks this summer.

7. 49ers - DL DeForest Buckner, Oregon
