Everyone has an opinion of what needs the St. Louis Rams should fill in the upcoming 2009 NFL Draft. Former Denver Broncos G.M. Ted Sundquist is no different. Ted has analyzed the Rams draft needs on profootballtalk.com. With Orlando Pace and Torry Holt now gone, Ted like many others believe the Rams needs are offensive tackle followed by wide receiver. Ted also believes the Rams are after Jason Smith the offensive tackle from Baylor.
Tackles are much more financially sound and a statistically safer choice than WR’s in the top 10 picks. Should Detroit take a QB, the Rams will have their pick of the class. Though I have concerns about lower body explosiveness, Jason Smith has the most athletic upside of the group.
Potential targets: OT Jason Smith (Baylor), OT Eugene Monroe (Virginia), OT Andre Smith (Alabama), WR Michael Crabtree (Texas Tech).
