There are still areas that need improvement—it's impossible to address every need and minor concern in one draft—but it's hard to be pessimistic over St. Louis' results from this past weekend.
Tavon Austin is a solid replacement in the slot for Danny Amendola, only with more top-end speed and potential, while Stedman Bailey will replace Brandon Gibson as a reliable possession receiver.
Alec Ogletree and T.J. McDonald are hard-hitting defenders who are perfect fits for a Jeff Fisher defense, while Barrett Jones is a Swiss Army knife on the offensive line and can play virtually any position.
And last but not least, Brandon McGee and Zac Stacy are late-round projects with serious potential.
The Rams are still lacking talent at running back and safety, but even so, they used the draft to become a better football team.
But does the mainstream media share the optimism with the St. Louis faithful?
Here are report cards from several major sources, combined with an analysis of their grades.
