article image2015 NFL Mock Draft: St Louis Rams starting over again?

By Larry Seely     Oct 18, 2014 in Sports
Saint Louis - The St Louis Rams are the youngest squad in the NFL. but poor decisions by the front office with draft picks in recent years are about to make this team even younger when the 2015 season gets started next summer.
Sam Bradford has been a bust and despite showing good form when healthy, the former number one overall pick has yet to play enough to be trusted. The team did add veteran Shaun Hill over the off-season, but he was also injured and the Rams are now playing Austin Davis.
Davis has been good in spots, but his inexperience and lack of good pass protection in the middle have hurt this offense all season and that could lead to a brand new start next season.
Walter Football is just one of several football draft sites that believe Florida State star quarterback Jameis Winston will be the new signal caller in St Louis. Despite several off field issues with the young man, his skills on the field make him a solid option in the first round and the type of player that could turn this franchise around.
The team used a first round pick this past spring on guard Greg Robinson, but after playing just ten plays through the first five weeks of the year, his first start had mixed reviews and an upgrade could be needed.
The latest mocks have the front office taking Tre Jackson, also of Florida State, a move to give whoever plays quarterback next season a better chance at success and hopefully open a few more holes for a running game that has struggled all year.
Defense was supposed to be the strength of this team, especially after leading the NFL in sacks last year, but injuries and a lack of experience has hurt this unit and changes should be coming. Adding a couple veteran free agents wouldn't hurt and it could help turn things around more quickly, but adding more young talent seems to be the plan and next springs draft could be the start of a new beginning for a franchise that has struggled to win games over the last decade.
