2011 NFL Draft Picks (Before Draft Begins)
Rams Draft Needs
WR, TE, OG, DT, DE, SS, RB
14. St. Louis Rams Select: DE Robert Quinn
The Rams needed more help on the defense and they’ve decided to go with another defensive end. I’m not in love with this selection but the Rams do like to rotate ends during the game, and Quinn can make an impact in pass rush.
Draft Grade: B-
47. Tight End Lance Kendricks
Another weapon for Sam Bradford but it would have been nice to see the Rams take a receiver.
78. Wide Receiver Austin Pettis
Nice pickup for Sam Bradford as Austin Pettis had himself a nice career with Boise State and should be a productive player in the pros.
112. Wide Receiver Greg Salas
158. Defensive Back Jermale Hines
216. Defensive Back Mikail Baker
228. Outside Linebacker Jabara Williams
229. Defensive Back Jonathan Nelson
