Before the season began, Doug Farrar characterized the Rams' first round draft pick thusly: "Putting Chris Long and Robert Quinn alongside each other might just be illegal."

Perhaps only the Rams could bring in a block-first tight end who drew more penalties than all but two other players at his position and a broken-down receiver who caught only nine passes in eleven games, and give fans hope that both players might be clear upgrades at their position.
