Rams Select Jermale Hines - SS - Ohio State
The St. Louis Rams selected 6'1" 216 lb SS Jermale Hines from Ohio State in the 5th round of the 2011 NFL Draft. NFL Draft Countdown has Jermale Hines listed as the 21st best Safety in the 2011 NFL Draft. FF Toolbox had Hines projected as a 6th round selection. Hines was best in run support at Ohio State and will have to improve in his coverage skills. I really believe the Rams needed to pick up another Safety in this draft so we will have to see how Hines progresses once in training camp. The Rams have three picks remaining in the 7th round of the 2011 NFL Draft.
