2011 NFL Mock Draft: Where Else On Offense?

So as we've discussed ad nauseum, the 2011 NFL Mock Draft scenarios for wide receivers are extremely grim, and as I've repeated to myself ad nauseum, the St. Louis Rams might still be left with the need to upgrade their offense via the draft. So let me ask you, the Typically Pretty Quiet Readers: Where would you upgrade the offense, if the Rams can't upgrade where—well, where they need to.

I've already declared I'm a Mark Ingram guy—the Rams need to get some weight off Steven Jackson's shoulders, lest he prematurely go the way of all running backs, and Kenneth Darby tends to lift with his back. Ingram's not the ideal complementary back to Jackson; obviously you'd rather have a guy who could catch the ball and sneak around with it, because that would make one person on the field who could catch the ball and sneak around with it. Ingram could get the ball on short-yardage plays, where Jackson was beaten most severely last season.

Of course, this is all moot if, as Mel Kiper mock drafted yesterday, the Rams end up with Julio Jones after all. That's the ideal situation, a wide receiver who can develop with Bradford, but there are other offensive patches to be made if Jones and A.J. Green both go early.
