St. Louis Rams Take Robert Quinn

Well, it didn’t go as planned, but I couldn’t be more happy with the Rams’ first-round selection. The Rams took Robert Quinn (DE, N. Carolina) at #14 overall. This guy is an elite pass-rusher who should fit in perfectly opposite Chris Long on the line. I didn’t mention Quinn much in the weeks leading up to the draft because I didn’t think there was any way he’d be there. I have loved this guy for about two years now, so I am giddy right now. Here’s a highlight video of Quinn from college, so check it out. You will enjoy it.

    Julio Jones seemed more and more like a pipe dream in the last couple of days and to see him taken so early was truly heart breaking.

    When the pick came around I was between Robert Quinn and Prince. Hell any of the 3 overall would have been great for our team, but this was definitely a position we needed a man of this caliber and I am very happy with the selection
