St. Louis Rams Top 10 Draft Successes: #9 - Kevin Carter

The St. Louis Rams have had their fair share of excellent draft picks since resettling under the Arch in 1995. Of course, they had more than their fair share of busts too, but we've covered that already. 

On our arbitrary list of the ten best picks of the St. Louis Rams, the ninth spot goes to the first first-round pick the team made in its new home city.  Sorry, Los Angelenos. DE Kevin Carter was picked with the sixth overall pick in the 1995 NFL Draft. He played for six seasons with the Rams, starting all 16 games from 1995-1999; he started 13 in 2000, his final year with the team. 

During the Rams magical 1999 championship season, Carter collected a league-best 17 sacks. He also forced 4 fumbles and recovered 2 that season. He was a First-Team Pro Bowler that year.

With the Rams, Carter totaled 62.5 sacks, 14 FF and 214 tackles. Though he played for eight more seasons, he was never quite as productive in stints with the Titans, Dolphins and Buccaneers
