    Walterfootball on the Rams draft grade (every pick gets a grade)

    iight i know some of us hate walterfootball for there comments on the Rams of late but here is the Grade they gave us on each pick!

    2009 NFL Draft Picks:

    2. Jason Smith, OT, Baylor
    In the NFL, you need a quarterback; you need to protect your quarterback; and you need to get to the other quarterback. The Rams couldn't take Mark Sanchez because they have too much money invested in Marc Bulger, and cutting/trading him would result in a huge penalty. So, this was a no-brainer. (Pick Grade: A)

    35. James Laurinaitis, ILB, Ohio State
    James Laurinaitis becomes a leader of this defense. He was one of the top players available. It certainly looks like Billy Devaney knows what he's doing. (Pick Grade: A)

    66. Bradley Fletcher, CB, Iowa
    Yet another solid pick by the Rams. I didn't have Bradley Fletcher in the third round of my mock re-draft, but he certainly could have been there. St. Louis is taking solid value and addressing positions of dire need. I love what Billy Devaney has done thus far. (Pick Grade: A)

    103. Dorell Scott, DT, Clemson
    Wow, I'm not used to the Rams drafting so well. Unlike some other teams, the Rams understand that you have to either take high positional and/or draft value. (Pick Grade: A)

    160. Brooks Foster, WR, North Carolina
    You knew the Rams were going with a receiver at some point in this draft after cutting Torry Holt. This is Brooks Foster's draft range. Solid pick. (Pick Grade: B)

    196. Keith Null, QB, West Texas A&M
    New regime means new quarterback. Steve Spagnuolo wanted a developmental quarterback in the later rounds. (Pick Grade: B)

    211. Chris Ogbonnaya, RB, Texas
    The Rams had to find an insurance policy for the suddenly oft-injured Steven Jackson. The value was right for Chris Ogbonnaya in Round 7. (Pick Grade: B)

    I dont know if I agree with these grades or not. What do the rest of you think ? If youre only grading on value picks I guess its all right but sort of was hoping for a different looking draft than what I see. Can we stop the run with this? Can we get to the QB better now? I would rate it a "C" grade. I wish the rams all the best. See ya in the top "5" again next year! GOD BLESS!

    i belive this was a solid draft, B+ to A - (WAY TO EARLY TO TELL)
    we got out big run blocking tackle and run stuffing MLB, we got a big man for DT and we got a corner back to compete for an up for grabs corner position opposite bartell. i would agree with the waterfootball for once

    I had the Rams with a "A" grade. The 3rd round was the start of the grade change. I think a solid "B" grade is in order.
    I felt a trade down could have still landed CB Bradley Fletcher.
    I felt DE M. Johson or DE J. Gilbert could have helped the Rams more in the long run.

    He's actually given us an A+ overall. How that works from 4 As and 3 Bs I'm not quite sure, but it's a move in the right direction.
