Well the Rams for all the talking and rumors stuck to a logical script. They filled needs and depth. Unfortunately the draft was only seven rounds, and they have many more needs to address. Love Smith and Laurenitis, two starters immediately.
As far as big names shipping out of STL (Pace, Holt, Pisa) they need to fit Spags' scheme. All of these players fit other schemes GSOT, Cover 2, and in Pace's case age and injuries. It's tough to lose these players that we all cheered for for so many years, but it simply is time.
The Rams have been awful lately, so they needed to get younger, and hopefully better.
