Since moving to St. Louis in 1995 the St. Louis Rams have had 16 number one draft picks. As you can see by the list this is not always a sure deal. Who will the St. Louis Rams pick in the 2008 NFL Draft? Will we get Torry Holt type quality or another Lawrence Phillips? Only time will tell but to be competitive in 2008 the Rams will need to select two very productive picks with their #2, and #33 selections. Bill Devaney will need to be on top of his game on April 26th. Out of 16 picks I would say only 5, to date have really hit the mark. Kevin Carter, Orlando Pace, Grant Wistrom, Torry Holt, & Steven Jackson have been very good pro players. The jury is still out on a couple of others. Notice other than Jackson, the other four were selected in the top 10 in the draft. Only Lawrence Phillips was a top 10 bust, and talent wise he probably was good enough, but mentally well…..
