When the 2009 season ended I was certain that the best player for the Rams on Draft Day was going to be Ndamukong Suh. Suh was the most dominant player in college football in 2009 and the Rams need defensive playmakers. It was a match made in heaven.
Now as we sit here at the end of March I am 100% certain that, unless the Rams get a tremendous trade offer, they should pick Sam Bradford. Why the change? Logically it makes sense for the Rams to go quarterback instead of defensive tackle if the talent gap between the two is not hugely significant.
If you break this down logically the Rams have only one way to go and that is Bradford. If you take away the emotion of the decision, you have to go QB. The reason?
Quarterbacks make a bigger impact in the NFL then a defensive tackle, and that pains me to say as someone who greatly admires the ability it takes to be an offensive or defensive lineman.
