Rams saw a bit of Terrell Owens in Brian Quick

According to Michael Silver of Yahoo! sports, Rams head coach Jeff Fisher and a small cluster of his staff traveled covertly to Boone, North Carolina last Friday to get a look at Appalachian State wide receiver Brian Quick. After Quick’s very impressive half hour workout, the Rams knew they wanted him. Ray Sherman, the receivers coach for the Rams, was reminded of a player he...

Janoris dismisses Pacman comp

Janoris Jenkins has been compared to Pacman Jones for several reasons, but Jenkins has a funny reason why it doesn't apply.

St. Louis Rams select Brian Quick, Grade B-

Pretty cool to have Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt at the podium to introduce the St. Louis Rams next No. 1 receiver. However, this was too early for Brian Quick. Sam Bradford needs someone who can come in and help him immediately, and the FCS receiver is too raw to make a significant impact early on. Unfortunately, this feels an awful lot like the when the Rams reached for Donnie Avery...

Rams take K Greg Zuerlein of Mo Western

The St. Louis Rams have selected kicker Greg Zuerlein of Missouri Western in the sixth round of the NFL draft. The Rams used the 171st selection to nab the 6-foot, 190-pound Zuerlein, who kicked 23 field goals last season and missed just one. Zuerlein broke an NCAA Division II record last season with 21 consecutive field goals, including nine that were 50 or more yards. He kicked...

St. Louis Rams select Janoris Jenkins, Grade C

The St. Louis Rams are gambling here, but I don’t completely hate the move. They have multiple picks in the 2nd round, so I can definitely understand why they were willing to gamble. However, a young team which is likely not going to be competitive for another year or two is generally not a good place for a guy with character concerns. Janoris Jenkins would have been better off...

Rams pick RB Richardson of Abilene Christian

The St. Louis Rams selected running back Daryl Richardson of Abilene Christian with their second pick in the seventh round Saturday. The Rams used the 252nd selection - next to last - of the draft to pick 5-foot-11, 200-pound Richardson. It was a compensatory pick for St. Louis. Richardson is the brother of former Abilene Christian running back Bernard Scott, who now plays for...

Rams grab CB Trumain Johnson in 3rd round

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Rams chose a defensive back with their third-round pick, taking Trumaine Johnson of Montana. NFL.com said the 6-foot-2, 204-pound Johnson was arguably one of the best prospects to emerge from the Big Sky Conference in several years and he was rated the best draft prospect at the small college level and most underrated defensive back by the NFL draft...

Star Power: Jerry Jones and his Cowboys rob St. Louis, shock the NFL, nab Morris Claiborne

You can accuse Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones of many things,—and I have—but being timid has never been one of them. Especially on the day of the NFL draft. Last night, the noted oil wildcatter-turned-NFL-general manager was at his root-’n'-tootin’, gunslinging best when he leaped from the pick 14 to pick six (yeah, that’s a pun, and apropos...

Rams' new foundation set in second round

ST. LOUIS A legacy has begun. Coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead will make selections in the last four rounds, of course, but the foundation of the St. Louis Rams' first NFL Draft under new leadership was set early Friday night. There were various messages sent with the three players taken in the second round: Snead and Fisher trust their instincts when evaluating...

Rams draft DB Johnson in third round

The St. Louis Rams chose a defensive back with their third-round pick, taking Trumaine Johnson of Montana. NFL.com said the 6-foot-2, 204-pound Johnson was arguably one of the best prospects to emerge from the Big Sky Conference in several years and he was rated the best draft prospect at the small college level and most underrated defensive back by the NFL draft report. Johnson...

St. Louis Rams Select WR Brian Quick With 33rd Overall Pick

The St. Louis Rams passed on the likes of LSU’s Rueben Randle, Stephen Hill out of Georgia Tech and South Carolina’s Alshon Jeffery with the first pick in the second round (33rd overall) in the 2012 NFL Draft. However, wide receiver Brian Quick, one of the team’s pre-draft visitors, received first-round grades from several NFL area scouts. Quick, an unheralded long-armed small...
