1a. 16. Sheldon Richardson, DT Missouri
This will officially solidify the defensive line. Once this pick is made, teams will be afraid to run the ball on us. With him and Brockers clogging up the middle, and Chris Long and Robert Quinn rushing the outsides, we may have the best defensive line in the league.
1b. 22. Matt Elam, S, Florida
Along with solidifying the d-line, this pick will go a long way towards completing the turnover machine that can become the St. Louis Rams secondary. He is a hard hitting, ferocious, ball hawking safety that could turn out to be the best one in his class.
2. 46. Quinton Patton, WR, Louisiana Tech
This draft pick will give Sam Bradford a reliable target to throw to. Adding more young weapons to an already young receiving core is a great move. This is a core that can grow together and become great.
3. 78. Montee Ball, RB, Wisconsin
Ball is a touchdown machine, and for a team that was extremely bad in the red zone last year, this will go a long way towards improving that. He holds almost every NCAA touchdown record to date, so this pick could be a steal.
4. 113. Jelani Jenkins, OLB, Florida
I really like this player and if the Rams drafted him I would be a very happy man. He is very underrated. He may have the best sideline to sideline speed of all the linebackers in this draft. I think this pick could be considered one of the steals of the draft down the road.
5. 149. Terry Hawthorne, CB, Illinois
This pick adds good depth at CB, after the loss of Bradley Fletcher, this is a player that could step in if any injuries occur and he will provide solid depth, plus he is an East St. Louis product.
6. 184. David Bass, DE, Missouri Western
This pick also adds good depth to an already great defensive line. He should be a great compliment behind Chris Long and Robert Quinn, along with William Hayes, we will have deep depth on the D-Line if one of our main guys go down, this is a player that can step in and thrive.
7. 222. TJ Moe, WR, Missouri
With the loss of Danny Amendola, the Rams need a slot receiver, and Moe should do good in that role. Despite a poor combine performance, he made up for it with his pro day. He has reliable hands and will help us in the red zone.
