2012 NFL Draft Results: St. Louis Rams Take Michael Brockers After Multiple Trades

The first round of the 2012 NFL Draft is in the books, and the results for the St. Louis Rams are... a little complicated. The Rams went into draft day with the Washington Redskins' No. 6 pick, which they acquired with a basket of picks for what amounts to Robert Griffin III at No. 2. They ended draft day with defensive tackle Michael Brockers, set to save their scuffling run defense, at No. 14, and a third second-round pick. The Dallas Cowboys took them up on the offer—they wanted Morris Claiborne at No. 6.

Justin Blackmon and Matt Kalil falling just short of the sixth overall pick probably precipitated the trade for the Rams, who got a solid talent at a position of need but failed to address the problems with their dysfunctional offense—Sam Bradford still needs a wide receiver and some offensive line help, and the Rams are likely to try to address both with one of three second-round picks on Friday.
