While most NFL mock drafts have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers taking defensive tackle Gerald McCoy with the third overall pick in April, one pundit suggested in a article today that McCoy could be the player the St. Louis Rams take with the No. 1 overall pick in the draft.

Needless to say, McCoy going to St. Louis is surprising seeing as most experts have Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh rated ahead of McCoy.

If the draft was today, the Rams would select Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy because he is the player that head coach Steve Spagnuolo likes better. Fortunately for Rams fans who want a quarterback after passing on Matt Ryan and Mark Sanchez the past two Aprils, the team has seven weeks to change Spags’ mind. McCoy’s OU teammate, quarterback Sam Bradford, plans to throw and show off his surgically repaired right shoulder on March 25. A year ago, Bradford was the consensus top quarterback, ahead of Matthew Stafford, but he opted to return to play college football.

PewterReport.com's Take: Wow. We're sure Czarnecki has some good sources he's leaning on for this information, but it's still surprising, especially when you consider the fact that Suh was rated ahead of McCoy going into the combine, and Suh outperformed McCoy in Indianapolis. The draft is subjective, so perhaps the Rams, who have also been linked to Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford, share an opinion that is in the minority regarding McCoy. One thing is for sure -- the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be thrilled if Suh somehow got past the Rams and Detroit Lions, who could take Suh or an offensive tackle. But no one should get too excited. Remember -- the 2010 NFL Draft still is just under two months away.
