The Rams got their man in the first round of this years draft. Carriker will come in and be an iunstant starter most likely and he will help out on an improving defense.

Its obvious the focus is on WR and DE just as most people expected. With only 3 known WR that have made the roster, this may be a good situation for a rookie to come in and contribute and learn from some of the best. The Rams did trade for James Hall, but it doesnt mean there search for a DE is over. With Leonard Little getting older and Halls productivity unknown, a DE wouldnt be a bad option. The Rams are always looking to upgrade themselves in the defensive backfield. With Jeremetrius Butler appearing to be on his way out, a corner may be a good option somewhere in the draft. Steven Jackson is going to need someone to take some of the carries. If the Rams do aquire Corey Dillon in free agency, RB may not be a point of interest, but until then, it is. With less then three weeks until draft day, the rams have time to evaluate further and make the best picks.
