The St. Louis Rams finished in last place in their division last year, but it also just so happened to be the best division in football. With the Arizona Cardinals winning double-digit games and on the outside looking in for the playoffs, things look to only get tougher for the Rams who have the look of a potential playoff team if they can get Sam Bradford to be the guy they drafted him to be at number one overall.
This could be a make-or-break year for Bradford. This probably SHOULD be a make-or-break year for him. The 2008 number one overall selection has been a bit inconsistent in his career, but appeared to be really coming on last year before a season-ending injury.
The Rams are consistently improving, and armed with two picks in the top 13 this year, they are going to be one of the most intriguing teams to monitor. Now if they would only switch back to those brightly colored uniforms…
- CB Cortland Finnegan (Dolphins)
- OG Harvey Dahl (released)
- OG Chris Williams (Bills)
- QB Kellen Clemens (Chargers)
- TE Mike McNeill (Panthers)
- OG Shelley Smith (Dolphins)
- S Darian Stewart (Ravens)
- OL Rodger Saffold (re-signed)
- LB Jo-Lonn Dunbar (re-signed)
- DL Alex Carrington (Eagles)
- QB Shaun Hill (Lions)
- WR Kenny Britt (Titans)
Rams Top Needs
I like the potential of T.J. McDonald but the Rams need to get him a partner in crime on the back end of their defense.
2. Offensive Line
The Rams have Jake Long (injuries) and Rodger Saffold (similar) as high priced linemen but with two first round picks, there’s always a chance they could use one on a premiere big man.
With their CBs of the future potentially coming from that 2012 draft class (Trumaine Johnson, Janoris Jenkins), the Rams need to add some more players to the defensive backfield after Cortland Finnegan was released.
