    Saint Louis' 1st Round Draft History

    Since moving to St. Louis in 1995 the St. Louis Rams have had 16 number one draft picks. As you can see by the list this is not always a sure deal. Who will the St. Louis Rams pick in the 2008 NFL Draft? Will we get Torry Holt type quality or another Lawrence Phillips? Only time will tell but to be competitive in 2008 the Rams will need to select two very productive picks with their #2, and #33 selections. Bill Devaney will need to be on top of his game on April 26th. Out of 16 picks I would say only 5, to date have really hit the mark. Kevin Carter, Orlando Pace, Grant Wistrom, Torry Holt, & Steven Jackson have been very good pro players. The jury is still out on a couple of others. Notice other than Jackson, the other four were selected in the top 10 in the draft. Only Lawrence Phillips was a top 10 bust, and talent wise he probably was good enough, but mentally well…..

    This is from a blog but I thought it merited sharing with ClanRam! I think it would be safe to share the link since it isn't from a message board but I didn't want to risk being shunned.... :\

    Tim Biakabutuka went to Carolina before Eddie George went to Houston/Tenn in that draft also. Ouch.

    We also drafted Eddie Kennison at 18 and then the Colts took Marvin Harrison at 19. :\

    The last four drafts we've seen to improve. Sure, theyre not the best players, but they've done something for the squad.

    But some of the others...wow...

    How about all those "lovie-type players" that we drafted high? They all seemed to work out well, no?

    Ryan Pickett got a very raw deal being lumped into the DLew and Arch draft.
