A Rams (Possible) 2013 Lineup

2013 nfl draft logo

I read this somewhere a couple of weeks ago and wanted to get your opinion:

Offense
QB—Sam Bradford
RB—Daryl Richardson, Isaiah Pead x
WR—Chris Givens, Tavon Austin  x
TE—Jared Cook
LT—Jake Long
LG—Jonathan Cooper x
C—Scott Wells
RG—Harvey Dahl
RT—Rodger Saffold
 
Defense
RDE—Robert Quinn
DT—Michael Brockers, Kendall Langford
LDE—Chris Long
OLB—Jo-Lonn Dunbar, Zaviar Gooden
MLB—James Laurinaitis
CB—Janoris Jenkins, Trumaine Johnson  x
FS—Cortland Finnegan  x
SS—Eric Reid   x

The ‘x’s are where I have a problem.  Starting with the offense.

RB – neither of these guys have shown they can be an every down back.  Heck, Pead hasn’t even shown he should be in the NFL

WR – we really need at least 1 veteran presence here.  Neither player strikes fear into a defensive secondary

LG – Cooper sounds promising, but do we really want a rookie protecting Sam’s blind side?  Do we want Bradford paying for Cooper’s learning curve?

And defense:

The defensive secondary looks suspect.  Jenkins and Finnegan showed signs of brilliance, but they also spent long periods of time in 2012 getting burned again and again.  Adding in a SS rookie who got burned a lot himself in 2012 (Reid, LSU) and I see a lot of volatility.

I would have liked to have seen more free agency signings.  Your thoughts?
