NFL Draft: History of Pick 22

Brace Hemmelgarn-US PRESSWIRE

The Rams are hoping that the 22nd selection turns out better than it has in the past.

The St. Louis Rams hold the Washington Redskins' first round pick as a result of last year's blockbuster trade. The 22nd pick in the draft has produced some studs and some duds. Quarterbacks have been a favorite at pick 22 in the last 10 years; 4 of the last 10 picks at 22 have been quarterbacks.

Player Position Year Team
Brandon Weeden QB 2012 Cleveland
Anthony Castonzo OT 2011 Indianapolis
Demaryius Thomas WR 2010 Denver
Percy Harvin WR 2009 Minnesota
Felix Jones RB 2008 Dallas
Brady Quinn QB 2007 Cleveland
Manny Lawson OLB 2006 San Francisco
Mark Clayton WR 2005 Baltimore
J.P. Losman QB 2004 Buffalo
Rex Grossman QB 2003 Chicago
Bryan Thomas DE 2002 N.Y. Jets
Will Allen CB 2001 N.Y. Giants
Chris McIntosh T 2000 Seattle
Lamar King DE 1999 Seattle
Tebucky Jones FS 1998 New England

The Rams haven't held pick 22 since 1970 when they selected Jack Reynolds, a linebacker out of Tennessee. A few Tennessee players, and former players, could be in play for the Rams come Thursday, with Justin Hunter leading the way.

For the most part, the graduates of pick 22 are an uninspiring group - particularly the quarterbacks. Nonetheless, Percy Harvin, and Demaryius Thomas offer a modicum of hope.

Who do you think the Rams will take with the 22nd selection of the 2013 NFL Draft?

A group of Rams fans will be videotaping their reactions to the Rams selections on draft day and sending them in. A video montage will be created to show just how polarizing this draft is. If you are interested in joining in, please contact me on twitter or email me at 17giddyup@gmail.com.
