St. Louis Rams To Pick Tenth In 2015 NFL Draft


The 2014 season unfortunately came to a conclusion on Sunday with a 20-6 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. While the  loss to Seahawks is truly disappointing, if there is one good thing that came out of it, it’s that the Rams wound up having a better draft position at the end of the day.

When all was said and done the St. Louis Rams ended up with the tenth overall selection. Here is what the current draft order looks like:

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

2. Tennessee Titans

3. Jacksonville Jaguars

4. Oakland Raiders

5. Washington Redskins

6. New York Jets

7. Chicago Bears

8. Atlanta Falcons

9. New York Giants

10. St. Louis Rams

11. Minnesota Vikings

12. Cleveland Browns

13. New Orleans Saints

14. Miami Dolphins

15. San Francisco 49ers

16. Houston Texans

17.Kansas City Chiefs

18. San Diego Chargers

19. Cleveland Browns

20. Philadelphia Eagles

While having a top ten pick may seem like a good thing, the Rams have had two top ten picks in the last three years. One of which became wide receiver Tavon Austin who has yet to achieve more than 300 yards receiving in a season, and Greg Robinson who had a bumpy rookie year.

Over the past couple of years the tenth overall picks have been tight end Eric Ebron, OG Chance Warmack, and cornerback Stephon Gilmore. Enron only had 210 yards receiving and one touchdown with the Lions this season, Warmack has been an average guard for the Titans, and Stephon Gilmore picked up three interceptions for the Bills.

The last tenth overall pick to make the Pro Bowl was linebacker Jerod Mayo who was picked up by the New England Patriots in 2008.

All drafts are different, and in 2015 the Rams will be in a position to possibly get Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston if he falls due to his off the field issues, or pick up an offensive lineman like  Andrus Peat from Stanford or Brandon Scherff out of Iowa.

There is still a long ways until the 2015 NFL Draft, and with free agency still having to take place the Rams’ needs could change, but as it stands right now offensive line and quarterback are two of the team’s biggest needs.
