My advice for the St. Louis Rams on draft day is unsolicited, but it is simple. Don't take Sam Bradford!

It is always tempting to take a QB when you don't have one, especially when the Rams have let so many QB pass them by in recent years. St. Louis needs to realize that this year is different from other years.

The Rams have to ask themselves one question. Is Sam Bradford going to make it so that they don't have a top ten pick next year? I believe the answer is no. 

Why does this matter? It matters because while this years class is full of high level draft prospects, the QB class is weak, and while next year's draft class is not as deep, it is loaded with top level QB talent.

The Rams can get Ndamukong Suh with the top pick this year, and next year take Jake Locker, Andrew Luck or Ryan Mallet. 

Also, Sam Bradford is not coming out of a pro style system, and will need time to develop. Who is the veteran QB on the Rams roster who is going to mentor him and help him develop?

If I were the Rams I would take Ndamukong Suh, trade for Jason Campbell, and wait until next year.

All of this being said, I am a 49ers fan. So, go ahead Rams. Take Sam Bradford and throw him to the wolves and see how it works out for you.
