After the draft ended, Snead said, “It’s good that we came away from every pick with a player we really wanted,” showing the Rams didn’t just draft players to use the pick for that round or draft a player that will take a few years to develop in an NFL-caliber player.

In the first round they drafted wide receivers Tavon Austin (5’8”, 174 pounds) and Stedman Bailey in the third round. Austin could be considered undersized, but has proven to be durable, having not missed a game his whole college career. Austin and Bailey were teammates at West Virginia, which will allow them to play better off each other due to their previous chemistry.

The Rams knew they needed to draft a running back after the departure of Steven Jackson. This led to them drafting running back Zac Stacy from Vanderbilt in the fifth round.

The pick that stood out to me was fourth round pick offensive Lineman Barrett Jones. He is coming from the University of Alabama and powerhouse conference SEC. He has played just about every position on the offensive line, which is just what the Rams need with their history of injured players. Jones was a very decorated player in college, winning multiple awards as the top offensive lineman in the country.

On defense, the Rams drafted linebacker Alec Ogletree from Georgia in the first round, safety T.J. McDonald from the University of Southern California in the third round, and cornerback Brandon McGee from the University of Miami in the fifth round.

All of the players drafted by the Rams could help them become more competitive in the NFC West as the NFC as a whole. While the draft doesn’t always represent how a players’ NFL careers will play out, it definitely gives new light to the players drafted as well as the teams that drafted them. Which players drafted in the 2013 NFL draft do you think will have successful careers or be labeled as busts?
