Of yesterday's group of mock drafts released by the NFL.com pundits, none was more ominous than Albert Breer's, which called for zero quarterbacks to be drafted in the first round. Now, it appears that Mel Kiper is jumping on the bandwagon, as he releases his first mock draft of the season. (ESPN Insider link)
The last time that happened was back in 1996, which means that one year after one of the greatest rookie QB classes of all time, this could go down as one of the worst. However, it was far from a draft devoid of talent. A number of franchise players emerged from that '96 draft, including Jonathan Ogden, Eddie George, Marvin Harrison and the seemingly immortal Ray Lewis.
Moreover, the Rams don't need a quarterback, and there appear to be a number of talents at our team's positions of need. So why find this ominous? Because the 1996 draft was an unmitigated disaster for the Rams.
The team opened its tenure in St Louis with three picks in the to...

Pittsburgh Steelers’ Wide Receiver Mike Wallace is heading toward free agency in 2013, and into the welcoming arms of some desperate wide receiver needy team. Now don’t get me wrong, Dwayne Bowe will be another name teams will be going after, but Wallace would be the best option for any team looking for a receiver.
One of the big benefits to signing Mike Wallace in the off-season...
The St. Louis Rams have no shot to make the Playoffs in 2012, but the Rams made big improvements and everyone is left wondering what the St. Louis Rams roster changes will be in 2013. The first place to look for roster changes in 2013 is on the offense with the Ram wide receivers. The Rams have to face up to the facts that they need a veteran wide out to round out the group and 2013...
After missing 15 games in 2011, St. Louis Rams wide receiver Danny Amendola caught a team best 63 passes in the 2012 season and continues to lead the Rams offense.
It’s obvious the Rams are much more efficient on offense when Danny Amendola is on the field. His consistency allows them to move the chains more often and gives quarterback Sam Bradford a solid go-to option. It’s...
There is no other position on the Rams roster where one player can have a significant impact on overall performance as wide receiver. Yes, Craig Dahl is terrible, but I do not expect a rookie safety to improve our overall defense in 2013.
On the other hand, a receiver who can reliably catch the ball and routinely get open could cause the metamorphosis on offense that the Rams...
Could you imagine if you had to deal with a different boss every year. A different boss with a new set of rules and new set of guidelines on how you do your job. With guidelines on how much flare you need to wear.
Sam Bradford has had a new offensive coordinator each of his three years in the NFL with the St. Louis Rams. Brian Schottenheimer was being considered for the Jacksonville...
Veteran fantasy football drafters know about risk and reward. They know that waiting on a quarterback is a risk, as you let premier talents like Tom Brady and Drew Brees slip off the board. They know that drafting Peyton Manning, two years, one team change and at least four neck surgeries removed from his last NFL action, represented a huge risk, albeit one with potentially great...
