Rams Continue To Round Up Draft Picks

After signing four players to contracts on Saturday the St. Louis Rams continued their aggressive signing period inking four more to contracts. Today the St. Louis Rams have signed speedy 4th round pick WR Mardy Gilyard to a four year $2.34 million dollar deal. The Rams then got a deal done with Louisiana-Lafayette DE Hall Davis a 5th round selection. To round out the day the Rams signed 6th rounder DE Eugene Sims to a deal and then fellow 6th rounder CB Marquis Johnson was added to the herd.

The St. Louis Rams now have eight of their eleven 2010 NFL Draft picks signed to contracts. The remaining three are 5th round TE long shot Fendi Onobun, 2nd round offensive tackle Rodger Saffold, and big man on campus QB Sam Bradford. It is nice to see the Rams quickly sign their picks but it is an absolute must for Sam Bradford and Rodger Saffold to not miss a single minute of training camp. For the Rams to have any success in 2010 I believe Sam Bradford, Jason Smith and Rodger Saffold must grow into productive NFL starters in a hurry. Even after signing eight draft picks the Rams are going to need to find about 50 million additional dollars to sign Sam Bradford. Will the current ownership and pending team sale delay the signing in any way, we sure hope not.
