St. Louis Rams fans can't wait for a new mock draft now that WR Brandon Lloyd has moved to the New England Patriots. The full prediction of the team's success may not be totally known until after the seven-round draft is done, but that won't keep us from thinking about the possibilities.

The Rams had nothing short of a terrible 2011. After being picked to win the NFC West, the injury bug hit the team hard—more so than any other NFL team. Here is a partial timeline of some of the more significant injuries from last season.

Player Name Position Date of Injury Injury Description
Jermelle Cudjo DT Aug. 7 Back
Jerome Murphy CB Aug. 12 Fractured Ankle
Ron Bartell CB Sept. 11 Fractured Vertebrae
Danny Amendola WR Sept. 11 Dislocated Shoulder / Torn Triceps
Bradley Fletcher CB Oct. 5 Torn ACL
Brian Jackson CB Oct. 29 Knee
Greg Salas WR Nov. 6 Fractured Fibula
Al Harris CB Nov. 13 Torn ACL
Michael Hoomanawanui TE Nov. 13 Torn ACL
Rodger Saffold OT Nov. 18 Torn Pectoral

Looking at this list, it's not hard to see why the Rams weren't able to gain any ground. Injuries, especially to the secondary, devastated the team's ability to stay in games.

For St. Louis to have success in 2012, one of the first things it'll have to address is the cornerback position. However, does this necessarily mean that the first pick of the draft needs to be a cornerback?

Let's examine the team needs and then the possibilities that present themselves in the draft.
