An examination of the St. Louis Rams tight end needs


Over the past week or so, we’ve passed along our list of top 10 free agent tight ends along with our list of top 10 tight end prospects in this year’s draft.

But do the Rams need a tight end this year? It’s certainly not a top priority by any means, as the offensive line, secondary and wide receiving corps all are clearly more important.

But as many successful teams have proven over the years, having dynamic tight ends can never hurt. However, the Rams have already committed a lot of money to last year’s free agent splash, Jared Cook, and also have a couple of underrated players in fourth-year tight end Lance Kendricks and Cory Harkey.

So unless the Rams absolutely fall in love with a draft pick (I don’t think they’ll so much as call any of the free agents), then I don’t see the Rams turning over the tight end position heading into 2014.
