St. Louis Rams select Brian Quick, Grade B-

Pretty cool to have Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt at the podium to introduce the St. Louis Rams next No. 1 receiver. However, this was too early for Brian Quick.

Sam Bradford needs someone who can come in and help him immediately, and the FCS receiver is too raw to make a significant impact early on. Unfortunately, this feels an awful lot like the when the Rams reached for Donnie Avery in the 2nd round in 2008. Quick will take time to develop, and probably isn’t the security blanket that Bradford needs. They would have been better off selecting a guy like Stephen Hill who, while he is also raw, could at least make an impact as a deep threat early on.
