1. Rams Keep Trading
Many people I know were talking to me through text and Facebook saying "Rams move again?" I would respond with "Rams are looking to rebuild throughout their defense and some offense, not surprised" Getting players like Janoris Jenkins in the 2nd and Michael Brockers in the first, they filled some really big needs on the defensive side of the ball. Personally, I was thinking that they shouldve kept their first pick, got Claiborne and added on to that pass defense that was 7th overall last season. But like I said, I'm not surprised that they went out and got more picks to keep rebuilding their team. On the offensive side of the ball, they got a new weapon for Jeff Fisher's favorite QB at the moment by picking up Brian Quick from Appalachian State with the 33rd overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. What did surprise me is that in the second round, Instead of picking up proven talent at the running back position, like Lamar Miller or LaMichael James, The take Isaiah Pead from Cincinnati.

2. Kellen Moore Goes Undrafted
In college, this kid was a star and there is no doubt about it, but he wasn't what you call "NFL Ready" The conference he played in showed his ability in passing but not against possible NFL-ready defensive players. I know a few Boise State fans and they were saying that Moore would be a 3rd round pick, but I had a feeling (in fact I even made a bet) that Moore would be an undrafted quarterback from Boise State. Now he could still have a successful career in Detroit with developing and a trade of free agent signing later in his career and a chance at the starting spot, but as far as I'm concerned he is not ready to play QB in this league.

3. Case Keenum Also Goes Undrafted
His story is the same as Moore's except for the fact that he broke passing records and not winning records, It sort of surprised me that he didn't get picked on draft day but it wasn't very surprising. He will get a shot sometime in his career to hold a No. 2 or 3 spot on the depth chart but I don't see a starting job in his future without injury, especially since Houston is sold on Matt Schaub and were very impressed in Rookie QB TJ Yates.
