The St. Louis Rams are looking to take the next step in 2014, and that won't be possible without a successful draft.
The NFC West is a defensive powerhouse. The Rams need to keep up with the defensive arms race by upgrading the secondary, but St. Louis must simultaneously address its No. 1 concern: Fortifying the offense.
This mock draft will demonstrate how both objectives are within reach with proper decision-making and, of course, a bit of luck.
In this scenario, the Rams trade down from the No. 2 overall selection and pick up Atlanta's No. 6 and No. 37 picks (as well as future draft picks in 2015).
I don't typically explore trade possibilities in mock drafts, but I feel St. Louis will do everything in its power to move out of that No. 2 slot. Atlanta needs a defensive playmaker, so the hypothetical trade proposed in this article seems feasible.
So go ahead and sort through my picks and let me know in the comments section if you feel this draft covers all of the Rams' needs this offseason.
