St. Louis Rams
Needs: WR, OLB, DE, LG, OT, CB, DT, SS, QB, RB
To be blunt, the Rams need players at just about every position. This helps new general manager Les Snead, in a way, because he can take the best player available with every draft pick without worry if they will challenge for playing time. Even at quarterback and running back, the team will look for promising backup prospects behind Sam Bradford and Steven Jackson. Finding a true No. 1 receiver for Bradford is of utmost importance. Former Giant/Eagle Steve Smith might prove a bargain if healthy, but 2011 mid-round picks Greg Salas and Austin Pettis and slot man Danny Amendola are best as complementary pieces. If left guard Jacob Bell and the versatile Adam Goldberg don't return, those holes in the offensive line must be filled.
Even though Snead can't possibly fill every need in one year, the team's shortage of outside linebackers has reached critical levels. Finding more bodies to help past first-round picks Chris Long and Robert Quinn rush the passer is another concern. Adding defensive tackle Kendall Langford and cornerback Cortland Finnegan as free agents helped the defense, but the team is by no means done building at those spots.
