St. Louis Rams fans and 2013 NFL Mock Draft early-risers take note: DraftCountdown.com has released its list of top senior prospects for the 2013 NFL Draft, and among them is Wisconsin offensive tackle Ricky Wagner, who's rated No. 9 overall. The Rams' need for offensive line help is well-documented, and if Jason Smith and/or Rodger Saffold struggle again in 2012—and the Rams have a Top 15 pick, something Jeff Fisher will hope to avoid—they could find themselves taking a player like Wagner in yet another attempt to clear the way for present quarterback-of-the-future Sam Bradford.
Wagner is really the only prospect on this list who makes a lot of sense for the Rams—it includes three quarterbacks, including consensus No. 1 Matt Barkley, along with several defensive backs and defensive linemen—positions the Rams have addressed in each of the last two drafts.
More NFL Draft coverage, handpicked by the editors at SB Nation St. Louis:
- Of course, the Rams could also use a receiver like Robert Woods.
- Jason Smith and Rodger Saffold have one more chance to prove the doubters wrong.
- Offensive linemen are boring, but they're a good way to improve bad teams.
