2012 Rams Draft Results: Grading Rounds 2 & 3 Picks

It's been a while since Janoris Jenkins was shutting down opposing receivers in the Swamp. Can he bring the talent (and leave the other stuff behind) when he comes to St. Louis?

The Rams mixed their day 2 picks on both the offensive and defensive side.

They spent their bookend round 2 picks on WR Brian Quick from Applachian St. and speedy Cincinnati RB Isaiah Pead. In between, they picked up troubled (read: permanently high) CB Janoris Jenkins, following that pick in the third round with CB Trumaine Johnson. Johnson, a product of Montana where Fisher's son played.

But how do you feel about the day 2 haul (assuming the Rams don't make a late move into the 3rd round)? Did the defensive additions offset the lack of capital spent on WRs?

And what about Pead? Personally, I don't see him as a Steven Jackson replacement, but more of a complement.

Most blatantly to me, this draft class emphasized the fact that HC Jeff Fisher and GM Les Snead wanted to rebuild quickly on the fly. By going DT, WR, CB, RB, CB to go along with their free agent signings, it's obvious they weren't complacent with the roster they were handed from the previous regime.

So for tonight, hit this thread up with your grade and response for what the Rams brought in on day 2.
