2006 St. Louis Rams Draft - A Look Back

The 2006 St. Louis Rams draft has turned into an absolute disaster! If you wonder how a NFL team can fall behind the curve in talent and depth look no further than the NFL draft. The Rams drafted Tye Hill, Joe Klopfenstein, Claude Wroten, Jon Alston, Dominique Byrd, Victor Adeyanju, Marques Hagans, Tim McGarigle, Mark Setterstrom, and Tony Palmer in 2006. Of the nine draft picks only Victor Adeyanju & Mark Setterstrom remain on the roster at this moment. Tye Hill is the only member of that class that has contributed anything. Hill played in only 28 of 48 contests in his three years on the roster due to injuries. Hill touted as a playmaker out of Clemson always could run side by side with a receiver with his great speed but continually was unable to make the play. In addition the drafting of not one but two Tight Ends in one draft is a noticeable mistake. Looking back with my 20/20 glasses on, perhaps Greg Jennings, Devin Hester or Maurice Jones Drew would have been a better pick than Joe Klopfenstein. Joe contributed 33 catches and 2 touchdowns while with the Rams. Now the Rams find themselves floating around in their life raft waiting to rebuild their roster. Be patient Rams fans one day the rescue chopper may fly our way in the form of..............Sam Bradford?

Sam Bradford would be great, but I don't think I could stomach the path the Rams would have to take in order to get him.

I hear that. Most people have us getting another top 5 draft pick but not the #1 overall. I think we should be able to win 4,5, or 6 games this year.
