2012 NFL Mock Draft: Rams Select RB Trent Richardson In Latest Mock Draft

The St. Louis Rams may look to upgrade their running according to the latest mock draft conducted by the SB Nation team blogs. In the mock draft, each of the individual team blogs in the SB Nation network made selections for their corresponding teams.

The Rams blog Turf Show Times selected RB Trent Richardson of the Alabama Crimson Tide:

6. St. Louis Rams - Alabama RB Trent Richardson (via Turf Show Times):

The Rams desperately need skill players on offense. Blackmon is a better fit given the need at receiver, but Richardson is a superior talent. He compares well with Steven Jackson, who has since lost his speed and explosiveness as a result of being leaned on so heavily in the last five years. Richardson can be a feature back or a one-two punch with Steven Jackson. The offense can use the pairing to create mismatches and draw the attention of defenses, which would ideally free up some space on the field for their receivers.

The 2012 NFL Draft starts on April 26 and ends the following Saturday, April 28.
