NFL Mock Draft 2011: Will Ryan Williams Run for the St. Louis Rams?
Still No Receiver For Bradford In Second Round
The St. Louis Rams have a couple of offensive needs they need to fill this offseason. With their second pick, Ryan Williams comes off the board to back up Steven Jackson and open up the offense a little more.
Sam Bradford really wants an elite wide receiver, but he is not getting one in this mock draft.
Julio Jones and A.J. Green are off the board in the first round, and with Williams still available in the second round, the Rams can not resist since Jackson can not carry the entire running load for the Rams.
Williams is a great pickup at this slot and will make up for not being a receiver by being a good option for Bradford to go to on first down.
With Jackson and Williams in the backfield, Bradford does not have to win every game with his arm and the Rams offense now has a lot more options.
If Williams keeps the defense closer to the line, that also will open up the receivers more and have the effect of giving Bradford more downfield options.
