2012 NFL Mock Draft: Will The St. Louis Rams Start With Offense Or Defense?

The St. Louis Rams will have a high draft pick in the 2012 NFL draft and could go in a number of different directions based on need. CBS Sports' Rob Rang believes the team could try to trade down but also says LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne is a possibility, if perhaps not worth such an early selection:

Morris Claiborne, CB, LSU: Claiborne has played even better this season than his former teammate Patrick Peterson did last year. Claiborne isn't worthy of the No. 2 overall pick in the draft, but he'd certainly fill an area of concern for St. Louis.

NFLDraftDigest.com's Chad Reuter sees the Rams strengthening their offensive line:

Matt Kalil, OT, Southern California: If the Rams are not interested in keeping struggling former No. 2 pick Jason Smith around, or think he or Rodger Saffold could move to guard, then Kalil will fortify the offensive line.

Both are players whose names continue to pop up in connection with the Rams.
