The grading scale will remain the same in this progress report, but a lot of other things have changed.
As a reminder, here’s the grading scale.
A: The Rams don’t need help at the position—it’s a unit of strength.
B: Little assistance is needed: A bargain-type player or depth help would suffice.
C: The position could certainly stand to be addressed, but the Rams would be fine without a talent upgrade there.
D: The position was problematic in 2012 and will continue to be without a lot of help.
F: The Rams won’t be legitimately competitive without an overhaul at the position.
This time around, drastic and immediate changes aren’t exactly feasible. Free-agent talent pools have been depleted—although there are still guys out there who could do the job—and there’s not going to be a third draft this offseason.
Nobody picked a player in the second one, anyway.
