Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey are accustomed to giving defensive coordinators headaches and will now be doing the same thing in the NFC West. Not only are these two ballers, but both of them are thirsty to learn and to get better. There is no greater testament to that than what Stedman Bailey tweeted out this morning:
@biggame81 to follow your foot steps. Is there anyway I could get in contact with you. Figured you would be a mentor for me. I need to learn—STEDMAN BAILEY (@iamSB3) April 27, 2013
@biggame81 all the ins and outs about St Louis and try to definitely put together an amazing career like you did.—STEDMAN BAILEY (@iamSB3) April 27, 2013
If you weren't a fan of the Stedman Bailey pick before, I bet you are now. Stedman Bailey could end up a leader within the wide receiver core. Bailey is extremely intelligent and will likely learn the playbook inside and out. For a group packed with young talent, Bailey will bring his intelligence and tireless work-ethic which is invaluable.
When the Rams picked Stedman Bailey they received more than just a good player, they received a good leader.
