    Reason for why we are 6-34 in last 40 games

    With the exception of Barron and Jackson (still waiting on Long) every single one of these guys were busts. Several to my knowledge do not play in the NFL any more. When you see this terrible list of first round draft picks, it's no wonder we are a losing team. Hopefully Devaney and Coach Spangnuolo will put together a few consecutive good draft years. What's really painful is in a 7 year period we drafted Bettis, Pace, Wistrom, Kevin Carter and Holt. Not to mention later round talent like Bruce and Little.

    Old news. Also, change your formatting so the list isn't in white.


    You have to move past this. The Rams sure have.

    So you're already calling Jason Smith (who was on your list) a bust?

    Aside from that, I agree that our drafting has been poor. Teams who are consistently good are able to replace talent, usually through the draft but also through free agency. We haven't been particularly successful with either, but our drafts over the last 6-8 years overall have not been good at all.

    The draft is one reason, but not the whole reason. Most teams have had bad draft picks, even teams considered good at drafting such as New England, Baltimore and Philadelphia

    Pickett is a starting NT in Green Bay right now, Rams would do well to have someone like him next to Ryan.
