    I went with safety. We could use some experience on the back end. I was tempted to go with wide receiver since we are lacking experience there as well but I think that we may stand pat with what we've got or pick up Evans at 13.

    Re: What need should the Rams look to fill first through FA?

    I like to live in a fantasy world where the Rams grab Eric Decker in FA even though I'd love Evans, as well. I voted WR but if the Rams fill a starting spot at either OT, S, or WR through free agency then I feel like they can dominate the off-season despite the cap situation.

    Went with G, but I would be just as happy with a veteran safety.

    I went S. If we could get a top or near top S in free agency I believe relieves the pressure of having to choose one at 13 and open up to get what I feel are better players at other positions. Its noted that after the 2 there is a drop off in talent where not so much in the other positions.

    I think that you could get the most bang for your buck with a Safety. I'd rather pay the top Safety 9 million a year than a above-average CB 7 million a year or a Center 6 million a year.

    Re: What need should the Rams look to fill first through FA?

    I went safety. While I would love the Rams to draft a FS in the first round, I think the free agent market at safety is the best when compared to any other position.

    Jairus Byrd, TJ Ward, Donte Whitner and Malcolm Jenkins could all help this team.

    The only other position that has a decent amount of players in FA is corner, but safety is a bigger need for the Rams
