    The upside?

    Brockers can play wherever you need him to on the DL. We know Jeff Fisher loves defensive linemen. These are the makings of the NFL's best DL.

    Tony Softli on Twitter: "Trade back out of 6 to 14, pick up a 2nd rd #45 and draft Brockers DT from LSU is a great pick by the Rams. He was #9 on my board."

    Unless we get some help on offense any defense on the field as long as we wintessed last year they simply tire out and get whupped. Let's see what fish has planned with all of the other picks he has......

    Rams definitely needed some help with the run defense.... but losing out on a marquee receiver in the first round is a travesty.... Thought they had learned by now to quit giving up high picks to hopefully "steal" an under-the-radar player. It never works.

    Re: 2012 Rams First Round Pick (#14): Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

    When are you people going to come to the realization that the Rams just aren't an intelligent organization. I don't care if they have 50 picks in the next two years, they don't get difference makers and impact players. I am so freaking' absolutely sick of people coming on this board and talking about the future. Every year its the same anticipation, followed by the same disappointment, followed by more anticipation for next year.

    I don't give a flying' f*** about 2015- what I DO WANT is for the Rams to be a competitive team NOW. Arizona now has Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Floyd. We have a collection of complete garbage at the position. Could've had Blackmon at #2. Didn't want it. Could've been in a position to get Trent Richardson at#2 if we wanted him with Steven Jackson nearing the end of the road. Turned it down. Decided to draft a guy with 2 career sacks who will probably be Jimmy kennedy reincarnated. Wonderful.

    I guess the 31st ranked offense will automatically get better by itself. Get ready for another year of bad, uninspired offense with an aging Steven jackson and A franchise QB with absolutely nobody to help him.

    THIS is what we waited months for? I want to throw up.

    Anyone who needs to see the upside on this pick should go back and watch Dallas run up nearly 300 yards on this defense.

    Yes, losing out on Blackmon and then Floyd is disappointing, but everyone has talked about how deep this WR class is. We're one round down out of seven, with three picks in the second to help the offense. Can't be short sighted in a marathon.

    Hit the nail on the head. Absolutely right. We don't have one freaking' exciting guy on the roster offensively who can be counted on to break games open. We have a franchise QB with no proven guy to throw to. I guess we think we'll pick some gem in the 6th round. An abomination.

    Re: 2012 Rams First Round Pick (#14): Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

    First round space filler.

    Had a friend, played tackle for the Saints. Not big on sacks, but nobody ran inside on him. Started for thirteen years.

    Looking like the plan is to win a bunch of 13 to 10 games.

    Not an exciting prospect, but if it ain't losing I'm onboard.

    Re: 2012 Rams First Round Pick (#14): Michael Brockers, DT, LSU

    Tony Softli is tweeting some quotes from the Rams' press conference on Brockers...

    Les Snead this player makes are defensive line one our strongest units on the team.

    Fisher - Cleveland move up surprised us. Brockers had six pick value on our board

    Snaed - Not disappointed that we didn't get Balckmon or Floyd, It is a 7th round draft with alot of players

    Fisher - Explosive, very instinctive, get on an edge, plays with effort, he will develop into a fine player, he is what you want

    Fisher - I know there is one player smiling right now thats James Laurinatis

    Fisher - We feel really good about this pick

    Snead - Our board looks really good so far

    Fisher - We looked at all players this morning again with 6th pick value Brockers fit

    Snaed - We want players with our next four picks to come in and help us next year.

    Snead - Brockers, young, clean medically, good intangibles , very strong , push the pocket

    Agree AV, I might have preferred DeCastro but I think there will be quality WR options in Rnd 2 and we can try and address the OLB position.

    We do need a DT, but it sucks to miss out on both Blackmon & Floyd. Knowing now that our WR core will not have a #1 WR yet again next year, is just flat out depressing. I can only imagine what Bradford is thinkIng.

    Unbelievable. I guess the draft is over, and we don't have 4 picks tomorrow....
