Logic says cornerback or linebacker for the Rams at No. 12 overall.
Then again, when the head coach tells several reporters at the NFL owners meetings that he just may pick a quarterback in the first round.
But defensive linemen are always overvalued in the draft, and there are about a half-dozen others at this position who could squeeze into the top half of the first round. That list includes Kentucky DE DeWayne Robertson; Miami (Fla.) DE Jerome McDougle; Oklahoma State DT Kevin Williams; Miami (Fla.) DT William Joseph; and Georgia DT Johnathan Sullivan.
How that group shakes out could have a lot to do with what the Rams do at No. 12 overall.
— Jim Thomas, St. Louis Post-Dispatch “Rams draft? Take your pick”
Defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy was selected by the Rams with the 12th pick of the draft. He was with the team for four years before being traded to Denver for a 6th round picked. He was released by the Broncos before the season began and went on to play with the Bears, Jaguars, Vikings and Giants. He has been out of the league since the 2011 season.
