Baylor OT Jason Smith
Lanier63 with the pick...
It was my opinion that last year, as good as Chris Long is going to be, I think the Rams should have taken an offensive tackle to bolster their line for the future. As we know now, they did not have plans to keep Orlando Pace and having a tackle last year would have set them up with a second year player this coming year. Other needs could have been addressed in this draft and the team could have had a better foothold on its rebuilding efforts.
More from FF Toolbox:
Smith remains one of the top three or four tackles in the 2009 draft. In fact, if anything, Smith has moved up to the first or second best tackle prospect in this class. Depending on who you talk to, Smith is right in the mix with Michael Oher, Andre Smith and Eugene Monroe. Those four will almost certainly be the top four offensive tackles taken, but which order they will go is still up for grabs.
Previous pick: LB Aaron Curry
Next pick: #3 Kansas City Chiefs (TonyG88)

And the Kansas City Chiefs are on the clock! TonyG88 is up next, picking for the Chiefs.
I like the pick of Jason Smith by the Rams. It makes a lot of sense to choose one of the top left tackles in the draft when your 7-time Pro Bowler LT was recently let go. The only argument I would have is possibly picking OT Eugene Monroe over Smith. I like Monroe's experience over Smith's.
