Rams Must Shine Early on Day 2

If you’re a Rams fan, round one of the draft probably hurt a little. The Jags jumped up to steal Blackmon one spot ahead of you, so you trade back to 14 and watch Michael Floyd go one spot ahead. The upside is that Michael Brockers is a solid prospect to anchor the D-Line. Still though for a city craving it’s can’t miss, offensive all star it had to feel a bit like settling.

Fear not Rams fans, for you are the envy of round 2. The Rams own the 1st, 7th and 13th pick in the second round and there is a veritable bounty still to be had. The first pick seems likely to be a WR as the Rams can’t afford to miss out on their guy for a third time. Rueban Randle, (Brocker’s LSU teammate) could be a nice fit. Or there’s Alshon Jeffery of South Carolina, at one point projected as a first round pick before slipping down the charts. And how can I forget Stephen Hill, seeing how everyone else in the first round did. 6’5 and fast, cut from the same mold, and same school as Deymarius Thomas and Calvin Johnson.

Six spots later, the Rams should have at least one of the top OL lineman still on the board. (Jonathan Martin of Stanford seems like a possibility.) And then when they pick again, another 6 spots down the team should be in excellent position to pick up the best player available. (Maybe Janoris Jenkins is still on the board to fill the spot opposite Cortland Finnegan.)

Tonight, the Rams will be the proverbial kids in a candy store, and they need to come out of it with something better than a handfull of butterscotch suckers.
