Another May day, another 2013 NFL Mock Draft—and another draft scenario in which the St. Louis Rams are targeting one of their two most glaring needs, in this case wide receiver, that weren't totally addressed in a 2012 NFL Draft that didn't go as expected. WalterFootball.com has updated its far-off mock draft again, and this time they have the Rams taking Robert Woods with the No. 3 overall pick. (Hopefully that's by way of the Redskins...)
The Rams actually did a better job with their wide receiving corps than they did the offensive line in 2012, taking Brian Quick to lead off the second round and selecting Chris Givens later, but Robert Woods is one of the biggest names in the 2013 draft world here in 2012 and he's a popular pick for anybody in the range most mock draft types have the Rams choosing in right now.
Of course, all this depends on how Brian Quick performs in his rookie season—but right now I wouldn't complain about the Rams landing Woods, except inasmuch as it means they were one of the worst teams in football again.
More NFL Draft news and analysis from SB Nation St. Louis:
- Robert Woods would be nice, but the Rams do have less-obvious needs than wide receiver and offensive tackle.
- But at this point, a 2013 NFL Mock Draft is useful mostly to confirm your worst fears about your favorite team. The Rams will never have a good wide receiver again!
- A lot of draft talk can be safely ignored if only Rodger Saffold and Jason Smith finally develop.
