NFL Draft Zone:
Forget about Sam Bradford and Steven Jackson. The St. Louis Rams‘ true offensive star thus far is a rookie kicker from a Division II school. Greg Zuerlein made 21 consecutive field goals last fall at Missouri Western, and he’s been a sure thing in the NFL, too.
The rookie kicked four field goals, setting a club record with a 58-yarder and then topping it with a 60-yarder, and helped the Rams beat the Seattle Seahawks 19-13 on Sunday. He’s 12 for 12 on the year.
“Right now, our kicker is the MVP of the season,” Running back Steven Jackson said. “Pretty much, all we’ve got to do is get across the 50-yard line and we’re in his range.”
This has been a huge success for the rookie kicker, because he can easily hit a 70 yarder. He was the best kicker coming out in the draft and the Rams struck gold with this kid.

Leading the hit-parade was rookie Greg “The Leg” Zuerlein who booted two franchise record field goals ending up with the best at 60 yards.

Entering the 2012 season, the St. Louis Rams looked only to start the rebuilding of a team that went 2-14 in 2011. They started at the top with replacing General Manager Billy Devaney, and replaced him with the Atlanta Falcons Head of Player Personnel Director Les Snead. Snead immediately looked for a Head Coach and was able to lure long time Tennessee Titan Head Coach Jeff Fisher...

ST. LOUIS (AP) Missouri Western was a must stop for NFL special teams coaches this spring. Everyone wanted a close look at the kicker who made 21 field goals in a row, nine of them from midfield or beyond.

It was another tough win for the Rams, but they were able to pull it off. They are definitely grateful for another win.

ST. LOUIS -- Relying on thunder-footed rookie kicker Greg Zuerlein and a defense which kept the Seahawks out of the end zone after the game's first 4 minutes and 15 seconds, St. Louis matched its win total of 2011 with a 19-13 verdict Sunday at Edward Jones Dome. Zuerlein, a sixth-round draft pick in April out of Missouri Western, drilled field goals of 58, 48, 60 and 24 yards...

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network expects injured Rams halfback Steven Jackson to participate in Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, though he could be limited.Fantasy Spin:Jackson, hampered by a groin issue in recent weeks, has only totaled 20 carries over his last two games so we'd be very wearing about employing him as anything more than a flex player in Week 4.
