22. Dre’ Bly, CB, Round 2, Pick 41 Overall, 1999

Bly is yet another player who spent the peak of his career with another team; after serving mostly as a nickelback and starting 25 games over four years for the Rams, he went on to be a two-time Pro Bowler while starting 54 games in four years for the Detroit Lions. Make no mistake, though: Bly was a major part of the defense during the Rams’ “Greatest Show on Turf” era.

Bly had three pick-sixes during his four-season stint in St. Louis, including a 93-yarder in 2001. He collected 14 interceptions during his time with the Rams, including six during a banner ’01 season. During the latter two years of his Rams tenure, he also served as a part-time (but very valuable) punt returner, running back a punt for a 78-yard touchdown in 2002.

While Bly was largely in the shadow of guys like Dexter McCleon, Todd Lyght, and Aeneas Williams for a large chunk of his Rams tenure, he was one of the better cornerbacks the team has had during its time in St. Louis, and he delivered tremendous value as a second-rounder.
