St Louis Rams

This team was assembled, thanks in many parts to the Washington Redskins desire for RG III. The Rams have one of the most dynamic rush defenses in the league. Chris Long and Robert Quinn were already dominant at the defensive end position. The Rams went out and added depth to their defensive line by drafting Michael Sam in the 7th-round and Aaron Donald in the first. Whether or not Sam makes the final team remains to be seen, but there are signs that Jeff Fisher will bring in long time friend Greg Williams to run the defense which will create a very aggressive and dynamic turnover machine.

The Rams main problem is offense.  They had a lot of money tied up in Sam Bradford, who was returning from an ACL injury. On Sunday it was announced that Sam Bradford had torn his ACL again and will miss the entire 2014 season. There have been rumors that the Rams will acquire Mark Sanchez to replace Bradford this season, whether or not those rumors are true, whoever replaces Bradford this season will have a few different weapons to play with. Zac Stacey arrived in the 5th round last year and was a very productive running back. He almost totaled 1,000 yards in the last 11 weeks of the season. Fellow rookie Tavon Austin showed flashes of briliance but needs to be more consistent. Kenny Britt has been recruited from Tennessee to reunite with coach Jeff Fisher once more. With Sam Bradford out, the main question is who will be the quarterback and how far can they take them next season.
