The Rams cannot afford to gamble with the top pick. That is why a sure-thing like Ndamukong Suh is the most logical choice.

The 6-foot-4, 300-pound Nebraska defensive tackle is a senior and led his team in tackles for two straight years. If that last part isn't impressive enough, how about a defensive tackle with two blocked kicks, an interception, 22.5 tackles for a loss and 12 sacks?

Those would be incredible numbers for a defensive end, but from a defensive tackle, they're astounding.

Suh is considered to be the best defensive tackle prospect in a decade. He's one of those rare can't-miss players that no general manager can afford to pass on. And he would help every aspect of the Rams horrid defense that ranked 29th in the NFL. When you’re trying to build from the ground up, like the Rams are, you need to take the best players available, and there are none rated higher than Suh.
