It's official. The Rams have traded former first round pick Adam Carriker to the Washington Redskins (along with their fifth round pick) for the Redskins' fifth-rounder. 

In my mind, this leaves the Rams rather thin at DT, which leads me to believe, (along with the fact that Bradford said he wouldn't sign a contract before the draft) that Ndamukong Suh will be the No. 1 overall pick, as he should have been all along. 

The Rams toyed with the idea of picking Bradford first, mostly to see if they could get anyone interested in trading for the No. 1 pick.

Let's face it, the Rams need more than one pick to turn the team around and start winning again, but I think the Rams haven't gotten the offer they wanted and will now pick the best player in the draft. 

Call me crazy, but I honestly think this is the right pick. Spags is a defensive minded coach, and he knows that games are won and lost in the trenches. Suh is being called a once in a generation talent, and barring serious injuries, will make an immediate impact on the Rams' entire defense. 

That's my pick. I think it's the Rams' pick as well.
