NFL Draft 2012: Team Needs For St. Louis Rams Not Hard To Guess

I love a good team needs column—you'll find one about the Rams here, from the National Football Post—but this close to the 2012 NFL Draft your own team's needs are hard to avoid; you're being buffeted with them at every moment, from free agency rumblings to every mock draft and rumors post on the internet. So: It will not surprise you to know that the St. Louis Rams really need wide receivers and offensive linemen.

Given their draft habits over the last few years, this is an unpleasant truth; they took Greg Salas, Austin Pettis, and Mardy Gilyard in the last two years, and spent major picks on current holes Rodger Saffold and Jason Smith. But it's a truth nonetheless.

The most interesting thing about this column might be the Post's suggestion that Rutgers's Mohamed Sanu would make an interesting receiver pick after Justin Blackmon. I don't know if the Rams have time to develop another project receiver, but they also don't have a lot of choices left to pick through.
