Though most draft critics praised the first draft haul of new St. Louis Rams GM Les Snead, the guys at SB Nation Studios questioned the wisdom of St. Louis trading down multiple times. In their 2012 NFL draft grades assessment of the NFC West, SBN Studios' Jerry Mallory says that he would've liked to have seen the Rams stick with one of their initial first round picks in order to draft a wide receiver to help Sam Bradford.
That said, Mallory did like that the Rams addressed their secondary. He tabbed corner Janoris Jenkins as the class' "headliner," and thinks that fellow corner Trumaine Johnson has the most value, both due to his draft position and because he acts as a de facto insurance policy in case Jenkins can't stay on the straight and narrow.
