OT, Jason Smith, Baylor

St.Louis Rams

Round 1, Pick #2 overall

GM 53Guys

Details of the pick after the jump...

Solid Protection

From the GM: With the Rams shopping Orlando Pace, there is simply no doubt that they will be interested in the top OT on the board.

While Smith isn't necessarily a complete tackle yet, he is quick on his feet and ready to pass block in the NFL, something which has been lacking in St.Louis the last few years.

It would be nice if he was also an obvious upgrade in the running game, but he will likely need to keep working on getting stronger, in order to be the straight ahead blocker that Steven Jackson needs to be running ahead.  To the degree that St.Louis is willing to put their tackles on the move, Smith could step in and be a positive all-around contributor right away.

ON THE CLOCK

Kansas City Chiefs are up next.  Do they go offense or defense?  Lord knows they needa  pass rush, but with the best rusher off the board, where should they look instead?  Only Papi knows for sure!

The deadline for this pick is midnight MST, March 21st (tomorrow).  As long as I receive the pick by that time it will be valid.  To send me the pick, just email me at the address shown in my profile.
