Rams' picks address most needs so far
By Mike Sando
The St. Louis Rams had a long list of needs heading into the 2013 NFL draft.
They have addressed most of them by selecting receiver Tavon Austin, linebacker Alec Ogletree, safety T.J. McDonald, receiver Stedman Bailey, center/guard Barrett Jones and now, in the fifth round, cornerback Brandon McGee.
Running back is still one position where the Rams could use help. They have wanted to add a bigger back to play with Isaiah Pead and Daryl Richardson. The team still has two picks in the sixth round.
Giovani Bernard, Le'Veon Bell, Montee Ball, Eddie Lacy, Christine Michael, Knile Davis, Johnathan Franklin, Marcus Lattimore, Denard Robinson, Stepfan Taylor, Joseph Randle and Chris Thompson are among the running backs selected to this point in the draft.
Update: Just like that, the Rams selected Vanderbilt running back Zac Stacy with the 160th overall choice. He goes 5-foot-8 and 216 pounds. Stacy is known for his excellent strength and power.
