It's the most wonderful time of the year...the week of the annual NFL draft—a holiday that's slowly but surely dethroning Christmas as the most anticipated and beloved holiday of the year (at least when it comes to the blue-collar fanatics of middle America).
And while the draft is primarily an excuse to guzzle beer on a weeknight and boo the commish (at least for most of us), it's also an opportunity for teams such as the St. Louis Rams—teams that missed the playoffs last season—to restock on fresh talent and come a step closer to a postseason appearance.
Armed with two selections in the first round, the Rams have a chance to formulate a playoff-ready roster by next week, as long as the proper decisions are made.
If the Rams can pull off a draft similar to the one proposed in this article, they just might have a shot at squeaking into the playoffs. So take a look at this final mock draft—the last one of the year (I promise)—and let me know if you agree or disagree.
