With The 15th Overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, The St Louis Rams select:

Cornerback Justin Gilbert from Oklahoma State.

Here is their analysis:

"The St. Louis Rams are one of the most promising young teams in the NFL and their two first-round picks will help them continue to improve. We saw that the Rams went with offensive line help with their first pick, so this time they can turn their attention towards the defensive side of the ball. While the team has an incredible front-seven, they will need to improve their secondary to really take that next step. By adding Gilbert, the team would be able to immediately form an impressive duo at cornerback with Gilbert and Janoris Jenkins. Safety is also an option, but as the Seattle Seahawks have shown, you can never have too many talented corners."

My Take:

I like this pick. Justin Gilbert is a serious playmaker. Also, he can take over some of the special teams returns so that the Rams can keep Tavon Austin fresh. Cortland Finnegan is getting up in age and having faster, younger corners to keep up with the receivers in the NFL is always something you should have on your team.
