ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Rams go into next Thursday’s NFL Draft with a chance to make a splash with the No. 2 overall pick, which they received from Washington as part of the Robert Griffin III trade. But who will they select?
In the days leading up to the draft, we will look at the top options for the Rams — the players general manager Les Snead and coach Jeff Fisher figure to be considering with that pick.
First up is Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who just might be the long-awaited perimeter playmaker who gives fans at the Edward Jones Dome flashbacks to the days of the Greatest Show On Turf.
The Rams of recent vintage are a far cry from the aerial show of the early 2000s. They haven’t even had a 1,000-yard receiver since the Scott Linehan era — two head coaches ago.
