Examining the St. Louis Rams’ need at defensive end


Yesterday, we looked the top 10 defensive end prospects that are eligible for this year’s NFL draft.

Today, it’s time to examine the Rams’ need at defensive end this offseason. On the surface, it wouldn’t appear that the Rams need much help at the position.

The team already employs an All-Pro defensive end in Robert Quinn, a perennial disruptive force in Chris Long and supersub William Hayes – not to mention a pretty decent backup in Eugene Sims. However, there is a real chance the Rams will draft Jadeveon Clowney at no. 2.

Not only that, but the Rams have been linked to former Cowboys defensive end Anthony Spencer over the past few days, although it doesn’t appear as if Spencer has officially made a visit┬áto the Gateway City yet.

Still, the Rams seem pretty serious about bolstering an already dangerous defensive line (former Bears defensive tackle Henry Melton is visiting today), so don’t be surprised if the Rams continue searching for weapons that they can unleash in different defensive line packages next season.
