The 2012 NFL season has reached its official conclusion following the Super Bowl, which means the offseason is on the verge of kicking into full gear.
Fans will be forced to struggle through a seven-month period of no football, but the fun of free agency and the NFL draft is always a nice consolation.
For the St. Louis Rams, the upcoming offseason is all about obtaining the extra push necessary to finally get into the postseason after nearly a 10-year drought, which can be accomplished with a combination of solid signings in free agency and competent drafting.
This article will focus on the latter.
The best thing the Rams can do in the 2013 NFL Draft is add offensive talent with the premier picks, while beefing up the depth on defense with the late picks.
The anemic St. Louis offense was 23rd in yards per game (329.0) and 25th in points per game (18.7), but a collection of talented rookie prospects could certainly solidify the unit.
The St. Louis defense is tough and capable of hanging with any team in the league, but the depth needs to be improved in order to push the unit into the elite category.
Read on for a full seven-round mock that addresses the team's most desperate positions while also keeping value in mind.
