    Clayton says Rams are #1 Sleeper Team

    1. St. Louis Rams (17th in power rankings)

    The Rams, coming off an 8-8 season in which they averaged 22.9 points, are loaded on offense. Steven Jackson is talking about 2,500 yards combined running and receiving. Quarterback Marc Bulger, having signed a $65 million contract extension, has a high-priced group of receivers to whom he can spread the wealth -- Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce, Drew Bennett and Randy McMichael. Sure, there is concern about the wear and tear on Holt's knee, but he knows how to take care of himself. Besides, the offense doesn't revolve around only him.

    But the pleasant surprise in St. Louis will be the defense. First-round choice Adam Carriker looks like the type of defensive tackle the club has sought for years. He's a tough run-stopper and will anchor the front. Defensive end James Hall also is tenacious against the run, a sore spot last season when the Rams ranked next to last in rushing defense. The linebackers have speed and playmaking ability, while Tye Hill has grown as a coverage cornerback.

    If the front 7 can hold up, I think the biggest question is the other guys (with the exception of HILL) who play in the Secondary.
