But is it as cut-and-dry as many people think it is? Ndamukong Suh of Nebraska could be one of the best DT’s in the NFL draft in a long time but there are some other special talents in this draft as well.
The Rams need a home run with the #1 overall pick in the NFL draft but who will they take? Here is a prediction of the #1 pick in April for St. Louis.
St. Louis Rams 2010 Draft Prediction: Who’s the #1 Pick?
The St. Louis Rams might decide to draft Ndamukong Suh, and that would seem smart because the potential #1 draft pick can team with pass rusher Chris Long to make that department a major strength for the Rams.
Many NFL coaches have a draft philosophy of stacking the deck in one area for a bad team such as the Rams to give the team a true strength that opposing teams have to gameplan for.
If the prediction for the #1 pick of taking Suh for the Rams is true that would allow that possibility come to fruition as Suh is one of the best pass-rushing and all-around DT’s in the April NFL Draft we’ve seen in many years.
Drafting Suh is my prediction for the Rams with the #1 pick, but there are other guys worthy of the top pick as well.
Gerald McCoy is almost as good as Suh and perhaps worthy of a look. Eric Berry is so versatile and good all-around as a playmaker in the secondary that he can’t be overlooked for the #1 pick either.
In the end, however, expect the Rams to draft Suh with the number one overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft because Suh is a once-in-a-generation type talent you simply can’t pass up at the DT position.
