S-Jax weighs in on what Rams should do with first pick
You can go ahead and add "draft guru" to Steven Jackson's resume.
The Pro Bowl running back appeared on ESPN's "First Take" Friday and was asked what his team
should do with the first overall choice in this year's draft.
"If we don't feel someone is hands-down the number-one pick, I think we should trade down, try to get an extra second-rounder, an extra second- or third-round pick, 'cause we have so many things that we can use as an organization," Jackson said.
After winning a grand total of six games over the past three seasons, Jackson is dead-on when he says the Rams have a lot of things they can use.
The first overall draft pick has been a hot topic here in Indianapolis at the 2010 NFL combine. St. Louis general manager Billy Devaney told the media assembled at Lucas Oil Stadium on Friday that not only is the team evaluating several positions, but the Rams haven't even been able to figure out which defensive tackle--Nebraska's Ndamukong Suh or Oklahoma's Gerald McCoy--is the better prospect.
"Oh man we’re hoping somehow there’s separation because right now in our eyes there isn’t any," Devaney said this morning at the NFL scouting combine.
"They’re both great players, going to be great players. They’re great character guys, they love playing football. I hope something happens where there is separation because right now in our eyes there isn’t."
Hopefully for the sake of Rams fans, the team figures out who the best player is and makes the right decision.
