St. Louis Rams 2008 NFL Draft Grade
There was a very solid draft from top to bottom for the Rams. Chris Long is an absolute stud and Donnie Avery could step in quick to compliment Torry Holt right away. They may have found a pair of starting guards in Greco and Scheuning, two players who will contribute early and often, hopefully keeping Bulger upright for a change. Justin King is a great talent once being the number one recruit in the country to Penn St. He lacks size but can really fly and is an impressive athlete. Keenan Burton from Kentucky has definite ability and could have been taken a lot earlier but he was banged up for much of the year for the Wildcats.

The steal for the Rams could be Mr. Irrelevant himself, David Vobora. He could be the first player in that position to make a legitimate name for himself in the league. He'll more than likely find his specialty as a situational pass rushing outside linebacker for the Rams; I really like his potential.
