Vote For the Week 9 Pepsi Next Rookie of the Week: NFL.com
The Rams’ running back who you probably figured would be 3rd on the depth chart at this time of year, just put up his 2nd 100+ yard performance of the season….in back-to-back games. It’s probably worth a few seconds of your time cast your votes [meaning multiple votes for him].
2013’s Impressive Trio of Rookie Running Backs: CBS Sports
Zac Stacy is the wild card in this group. The Rams drafted him in the fifth round out of Vanderbilt and lots of people thought he could step in and make a difference for St. Louis. But he was buried on the depth chart behind Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead. Those guys couldn't do much, Stacy stepped in and he's crushing it.
Rob Rang and Dane Brugler Mock the Draft: CBS Sports
Some might say "it’s never too early to mock draft." That rings true when aspirations of a winning season - and chance at a playoff berth - slip away. For the first time, in some time, it appears the Rams’ 1st pick in 2014 will be their own…and not of a Redskins’ squad, who have the easiest strength of schedule in the last half of 2013. How do you like these mocks?
Jake "The Snake" Roberts Isn’t Biting On The Rams In Week 10: CBS Sports
The beautifully-mulleted, WWF snake-handler doesn’t have much faith in the Rams in Week 10, but his counterpart in this weekly feature - Dave Richard - does. He smells an upset for a Rams team who find themselves nearly 12-point underdogs.
The Rams’ Midseason Report Card: ESPN
At 3-6 and without starting quarterback Sam Bradford, a 2013 season the St. Louis Rams hoped would be another step in a positive direction has left them stuck in the mud. The Rams have always viewed 2014 as the year they make the leap back into legitimate contenders, but they probably didn't think this year would come without more definitive progress.
A few more report cards from Nick Wagoner:
Sammy Watkins is picked at 10th overall. It’s great news for the Raiders. Opposite side of that pick, the Rams bolster their defense, on both the front and back end.
