Problem is you need a franchise QB to take the next step... but whadya know now that you are in the middle of the draft you can't get one anymore. Reverse the scenario and you are a middling team, possibly worse if you redshirted your rookie QB (a good choice for teams like the rams who have so little talent everywhere). But now you need a DT at 10-15. Much better shot at getting a really really good DT at 10-15. JMHO feel free to disagree, it's just my POV
I agree with that logic except that 'wanting a franchise QB' and 'actually drafting a franchise QB' are seperate issues.
If the Rams draft Bradford and he gets hurt again they are screwed even worse. Passing up on Suh, if he becomes an all-pro, is a fire able offense for a General Manager.
