2014 NFL Draft Grade: St. Louis Rams Select Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh


With the 13th overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams have selected Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh.

The Rams’ defensive front is absolutely hysterical at this point. Robert Quinn, Chris Long, Michael Brockers, and now another first rounder to go along with it.

You get one of the most productive defensive linemen in the nation over the last couple of years, and a dominant athlete who can get pressure on the QB.

This is a fantastic value for the Rams.

Grade: A+

So far, this is the best value in the draft aside from Khalil Mack falling to the 5th overall pick and the Oakland Raiders. To get Donald’s strength and quickness on the interior added to what the Rams already have is a stellar pickup.

Previous Picks: Greg Robinson, OT, Auburn
