NFL Draft: History of Pick 46

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

After recalling the histories of picks 16 and 22, Rams fans are looking for something to cheer them up - pick 46 may be just what was needed.

The uninspiring histories of picks 16 and 22 left me feeling anxious for Thursday. So I decided I had to dive a little deeper into the history of the draft, and check out what kind of players have come from pick #46... I felt a little better.

Player Position Year Team
Mychal Kendricks LB 2012 Philadelphia
Orlando Franklin T 2011 Denver
Linval Joseph DT 2010 N.Y. Giants
Connor Barwin DE 2009 Houston
Jerome Simpson WR 2008 Cincinnati
LaMarr Woodley LB 2007 Pittsburgh
Joe Klopfenstein TE 2006 St. Louis
Matt Roth DE 2005 Miami
Justin Smiley G 2004 San Francisco
Drayton Florence CB 2003 San Diego
Tim Carter WR 2002 N.Y. Giants
Aaron Schobel DE 2001 Buffalo
Adrian Kelmm T 2000 New England
Kevin Faulk RB 1999 New England
Samari Rolle CB 1998 Tennessee

No doubt that the first round, as a whole, has produced - and likely will produce - a greater volume of stars. Nevertheless, the second round - and pick 46 inparticula - has resulted in its fair share of NFL producers. The headliner of this group of players is LaMarr Woodley. Woodley will go down as one of the Steelers all-time greats. Franklin, Barwin, and Joseph are all dependable players in the NFL. For day two selections, the 46nd pick has resulted in production more often than not.

The Rams could have a bevy of players to choose from, but who do YOU think will last until the Rams 2nd round pick at #46?

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.
