Three positions Rams should target in the 2015 NFL Draft
This is by far the Rams' biggest need. While the Rams have been very active in improving their defense, they have neglected their offensive line so far this offseason. They only have two starters (Greg Robinson, Rodger Saffold) returning from 2014 after releasing Jake Long. A couple of names to keep an eye on are Brandon Scherff out of Iowa and La’el Collins out of LSU. Both are projected first-round picks.

The Rams did a great job in bringing back Kenny Britt, as he looks ready to have a breakout year. Still, the Rams need Tavon Austin and Brian Quick to step up if they expect to have a productive receiving corps this year. That said, the Rams would be smart to look to the draft another WR, as this year's class is the deepest in a while. Look for the Rams to use a second- or third-round pick on a receiver. If one of the elite guys falls to them, don't be surprised if thet nab him with their first-round pick. A few names to keep an eye on include Amari Cooper out of Alabama, Jaelen Strong out of ASU and Kevin White out of West Virginia.

The Rams made one of the biggest trades during the opening week of free agency in acquiring Nick Foles, freeing up $13 million and getting rid of injury-prone Sam Bradford, who just wasn't working out in St. Louis. Foles will go into 2015 as the starter, but beyond that, it is all up in the air. Foles will be a free agent, and their backups Austin Davis and Case Keenum are relatively unproven. Look for the Rams to draft and develop a quarterback within their system with one of their five picks, likely in the middle rounds. Some names that may be available include Brett Hundley out of UCLA and Bryce Petty out of Baylor. Both quarterbacks have stellar arms and have the potential to be starters in the NFL.
