The St. Louis Rams hired head coach Jeff Fisher in the offseason and brand new leadership typically results in a full-blown makeover.
It's certainly not ideal, but St. Louis fans must accept that their team is, yet again, undergoing total restoration.
It seems as though the Rams are constantly stuck in rebuild mode, and there's no clear end in sight, but after finishing with a 2-14 record, they simply had no choice but to swallow the cyanide tablet once again.
But fortunately for the organization, they have enjoyed an incredible offseason—perhaps, the best offseason in the entire NFL.
The team was able to attract the offseason's top head-coaching candidate (Fisher), and they signed two Pro Bowl-caliber free agents (Cortland Finnegan, Scott Wells).
The most beneficial offseason move, however, was the departure of their No. 2 overall draft pick, which was traded for Washington's first- and second-round round picks this year, as well as their first-round selections in 2013 and 2014.
In the end, the blockbuster trade could ultimately be the move that finally propels the Rams out of the catacombs of the NFL.
The additional pick will allow the Rams to establish a strong core of of talent in 2012 and beyond.
The numerous possibilities in the upcoming draft have been widely covered with the endless number of mock drafts in existence, but the future drafts are rarely discussed.
So let's take a glance at some of the prospects who could potentially be available in 2013 and beyond.
