I know that we all have our favorite picks and I can understand that some Rams fans were hoping for the sexy pick (Blackmon, Floyd, Richardson,...) but we need to trust the FO. They have done an incredible job so far. Believe me when I say that I understand your frustration because I have been asking for a true #1 WR for the last two years. During that time, I have suggested trading for Brandon Lloyd (last year), Vincent Jackson (this year), and Mike Wallace (this year) but this FO knows what is doing. They have watched way more film than we have, they have interviewed the players, they have seen them in action during private workouts. They know better and they know what may work best for us.
To add some credibility to their plan, they have turned TWO picks (#2, and #6) into four, FOUR additional picks (two extra second rounders this year, and two extra first rounders in the following couple of years. That is HUGE and the Rams are already turning this ship around, no doubt about that.
Reasons to feel good about the way this is going:
1) We have filled one of our top needs, DT (many people had Brockers as a top 10 pick).
2) If they traded down from #2 is because they didn't see any player in a position of need that was worth the pick.
3) If they traded down from #6 is because they didn't see any player in a position of need that was worth the pick.
5) We have picks 1 (33), 7 (39), and 13 (45) in the second round. That is OUTSTANDING NEWS!
Sure, getting Blackmon or Floyd would have been exciting but realistically speaking, can we say that one of those guys was going to turn into an elite WR for sure? Nobody knows. Many solid WRs have been found in the early/middle rounds. There are some intriguing possibilities on the board AND we own the top of the second round!
Today is good to be a Rams fan! Please trust our Front Office, they are experienced football guys that have been in the business for many years and you just can't forget that.
