I would suggest something other than throwing high picks at something expecting it to be fixed. Clearly there are other contributing factors @ work here, doesn't mean taking sexy pick, media darling whatever it means addressing need that can springboard franchise from mediocrity to competitive.
Just checking my reference material (ourlads scouting service) the Rams top priority in the 2011 draft was, wait for it.........WR you guessed it. After WR was not OL but LB, followed by RB then OL. & what did the Rams do? Took DE Robert Quinn, guess he was just too good to pass up or the two elite WR's were already gone by #14? As noted they had spent high picks on OT's in recent drafts but since both WR's were off the board, OL still presented itself with exceptional value that they could have selected. See Nate Solder, Anthony Castonzo, Gabe Carimi, James Carpernter & Derrick Sherrod. Seems like epic fail with so much talent last year, to force need now with 2nd overall selection.
2012 Draft was Mercilus
