The St. Louis Rams a young team with some tough decisions ahead . They are not without hope. They have some talent and a proven head coach. Unfortunately, they play in the NFC West, which has to be one of the toughest divisions in all of football. Add to that a quarterback in Sam Bradford who has yet to take his game to the next level and you have a pair of tough challenges ahead. A good draft could take the Ram’s a long ways towards becoming a serious playoff contender.
Who they will draft – Jeff Fisher is a smart coach. He also knows that he has the resume to make sure he sticks around for a few years. Without the demand to make a hasty move here Fisher goes the smart route and takes OL Greg Robinson out of Auburn. Robinson is probably the closest there is to a true sure thing in this year’s draft. You can never go wrong in selecting an anchor for your offensive line. Robinson looks every bit the part of a player who will dominate at his position for the next decade.
Who they should draft – The Rams play in possibly the most physical division in the NFL. If you are going to overtake the Seahawks and 49’ers, than you need to have some pop in your defense. That is exactly what OLB Khali Mack brings. Mack tortured Buffalo opponents all last year. He is probably not quite the most athletic player available at his position but he brings a physical kind of play that the Rams defense needs.
Who we wish they would draft- The Rams already have a nice batch of your wide receivers. Tavon Austin appears to have the tools to be highly effective in the NFL. Adding Clemson WR Samy Watkins would give St. Louis one of the scariest young WR corps in the NFL. Adding Watkins may finally give QB Sam Bradford the tools he has been without during his tenure. No one (except the rest of the NFC West) would be sad if the Rams were able to revive some of the offensive magic that made them one of the NFL’s must watch teams.
