The Rams aren’t just looking for any wide receiver, they are looking for a number one wide receiver that can play on the outside. A guy that can come in and give quarterback Sam Bradford a respectable target to throw the ball to.
The Rams have been searching for what seems like forever for a number one receiver and finding that number one receiver has been difficult. The Rams haven’t had a 1,000 yard receiver in 6 consecutive seasons, tied for the second longest drought in the NFL.
There are a couple of options for the Rams in the draft such as Clemson’s Sammy Watkins or Texas A&M’s Mike Evans, or the Rams can see who is available in the free agent market. Notables are Jeremy Maclin and Hakeem Knicks.
