St. Louis Rams Top Ten Draft Successes: #8 - Adam Archuleta

Our look at the St. Louis Rams ten best draft picks continues. Sitting at #8 on the list is none other than Adam Archuleta, Arch Deluxe himself. 

The Rams had three first-round picks in 2001, and they used all of them on defensive players. DTs Damione Lewis and Ryan Pickett never got much traction with the Rams, but Archuleta became a cornerstone of their defense for five seasons. 

During his time with the Rams Arch Deluxe had 15 sacks, 3 INTs, 351 tackles and 5 fumbles recovered. I can't think of many players I enjoyed watching as much as Archuleta. It's kind of funny to think about the Rams having a marquee name at strong safety, where they've gotten by with yeoman types for the last few years. 

Oh, and I'd be remiss if I didn't say something about his wife Jennifer Walcott. Aye caramba
