2013 Rams NFL draft guide
Examining St. Louis' draft history and potential picks this year
Insider's NFL and draft experts have teamed up to give a full breakdown of all that should be considered for each team as it enters the 2013 NFL draft. Here we look at the St. Louis Rams.
S, WR, OL, OLB
Major need: The safety position gave up a lot of big plays between the hashes in 2012, and now both starters are gone. The Rams' interior pass defense is short on both talent and depth. As of now, the starters (Darian Stewart, Rodney McLeod) may be holdovers, but neither player will upgrade a position that has been ignored in free agency and must be addressed in the draft.
Quiet need: At first glance, this WR unit looks really thin and weak, but these coaches seem to have faith in their young developmental players. Their best player, Danny Amendola, is gone (along with Brandon Gibson), but they seem to have faith in youngsters Brian Quick, Chris Givins and Austin Pettis. St. Louis will have a safe passing game that will rely on yards-after-catch for positive plays.
