Random Ramsdom 5/11: Rams Draft Michael Sam. Haul Yields Many “A” Grades

Kevin C. Cox

There were a lot of players the St. Louis Rams didn’t draft on Saturday; the final day of the 2014 NFL Draft. One of the ones they did is grabbing all the headlines...

Well folks, yesterday marked the conclusion of the 2014 NFL Draft.  It’s going to be another 12...13 months before you’re able to satisfy those draft hunger pangs again.  So, to recap, just who - and when - did the Rams select their newest players?

Rams, Fisher Did the Right Thing:  St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Say what you want about Rams coach Jeff Fisher, but no one has ever described him as weak, indecisive, timid or afraid. This coach is hardcore in his football beliefs.


Less than two hours east down Interstate 70 from his college stomping grounds at the University of Missouri, Michael Sam will take his shot at becoming the first openly gay player in the NFL.





Athletes always talk about "the zone." Jeff Fisher and Les Snead are there when it comes to the draft and the 2014 NFL Draft was no exception. It helps to always have a pair of first-round picks, sure, but they got those by making a blockbuster deal away from Robert Griffin III back in 2012 and then astutely moving around with their picks since then.


Less than two years ago, Maurice Alexander worked as a janitor in the Edward Jones Dome. Some of those duties included cleaning up after Rams home games.
