The St. Louis Rams did some trading back in Round 1 on Thursday and now they will play a major role in determining the way the board falls in Round 2 as a result.
St. Louis not only has the first pick tonight in Round 2, at 33, but pick 39 and 45 as well. The Rams’ primary needs are WR, interior OL, LB and RB with Steven Jackson getting long in the tooth. Head coach Jeff Fisher doesn’t mind sitting in the catbird seat.
“Our board is good, our board was right and there are a lot of good players up there,” Fisher told the NFL Network. “We can’t predict what is going to happen between 33 and 39, or 39 and 45, but there are a lot of good players up there. We have need positions here so this is precisely the round and the day that we’ve been looking most forward to.”
Fisher believes the Rams can potentially land three year one starters in round 2 tonight. Buffalo picks in between the second and third Rams picks in Round 2 at 41.
