St. Louis Rams

Depth Charts ¦ Offseason Review (Coming Soon!)

2012 Selections


1.14 DT – Michael Brockers LSU
They missed out Blackmon,Floyd, and Claiborne, but were able to acquire more picks and still fill a position of need. Brockers is still raw, but gives the Rams more help on the DL. I think they would of been better served by staying at #6 and going with Claiborne.

2.1  WR Brian Quick, Appalachian St

  • Great move for the Rams. They had nothing but a bunch of sub par WR’s on the roster, and now Quick immediately upgrades the Rams WR corps. 

2.7 CB Janoris Jenkins, N. Alabama 

  • The Rams have done a great job at addressing thier needs. There is no doubt that Jenkins has 1st round talent, but comes with some baggage. If he can keep his head on straight, this is an excellent pick. 

2.18 RB Isaiah Pead, Cincinnati 

  • I like Pead and he gives the Rams a solid returner and change of pace back for Steven Jackson, but WR is still a big need and I think someone like Rueben Randle would of made for a better pick. 

3.2 DB Trumaine Johnson,Montana

  • Rams needed secondary help, and they land Johnson who easily could of gone in round 2. Can either play CB or FS in St. Louis.

4.1 WR Chris Givens,Wake Forest

  • Rams continue to give Sam Bradford weapons. Givens is a vertical threat that has 2nd round value. Should pair nicely with Brian Quick.

5.15 OG Kevious Watkins,South Carolina

  • Finally the Rams decide to give the Sam Bradford some protection. I like Watkins alot here, and could compete for a starting job. 

6.1 K Greg Zuerlein,Missouri Western,

  • Late in the draft is when team start addressing Kickers, so you really can’t fault the Rams at this point in the draft.

7.2 OLB Aaron Brown,Hawaii

  • Brown has a great opportunity to earn a backup job for the Rams

7.45 RB Darly Richardson,Abilene Christian

  • Richardson will have a chance to make the roster as the #3 RB and as a return man

Overall Draft Grade


WR Signed Steve Smith; Tendered Danny Amendola
CB Signed Cortland Finnegan 
DT Signed Kendall Langford
OLB Signed Jo-Lonn Dunbar
(Other Potential Needs: FS,RB,C)
Neither Roger Saffold or Jason Smith has been the OT the Rams have envisioned.  Smith can’t stay healthy and Saffold might be better inside at Guard. Look for this to be the first position the Rams address this offseason. The Rams WR corps received a boost when they traded for Brandon Lloyd, but if he can’t be retained this offseason then WR becomes just as important as OT. St. Louis also needs to look for difference makers at all 3 level on the defense, most importantly at CB.
