2012 NFL Mock Draft: Rams Select Alabama RB Trent Richardson In Latest From SB Nation

In the latest NFL mock draft from SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber, the St. Louis Rams select running back Trent Richardson from the University of Alabama.

Jeff Fisher loves to run the ball. In St. Louis, he needs to run the ball since the Rams have to hit the reset button on Sam Bradford's career. Richardson will pair nicely with Steven Jackson, who turns 29 this summer, and gives this offense a dynamic playmaker.
