2011 NFL Draft: St. Louis Rams Select Robert Quinn 14th Overall

Robert Quinn didn't play at all in 2010, but in 2011 he'll be the newest member of the St. Louis Rams' defense, the 14th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Quinn, a dominant pass-rusher who had 11 sacks as a sophomore in 2009, was ineligible for the 2010 NCAA football season after a scandal-soaked UNC team was investigated for improper connections with pro agents, but his body of work in 2009 was enough to convince the Rams of his worth. 

The St. Louis Rams and their fans might have hoped to address Sam Bradford's dearth of wide receiver options in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft, but Julio Jones went sixth overall, in a spectacular and unexpected trade that saw the Atlanta Falcons pick their drafts clean for the next two seasons to get Matt Ryan a rookie weapon. 

As Sam Bradford sobs softly into his helmet and Danario Alexander tries his hardest to make both his knees work at the same time, the Rams get a player who some considered the most dangerous defensive star in the draft. He'll harrass opposing quarterbacks across from Chris Long.
