True they will get talent but it could be the carrier bust type or the smith ol bust type and so on.

Too many holes to fill in three years but they still need to beat us which they will not.
Every pick is a roll of the dice in that regard, the thing is EVERY team hits gold every once in awhile. Even the s**ttiest scouting teams get lucky. So when our division rival gets at least TWO chances to strike gold every year there is a legitimate cause for concern. Although they could very well use it to trade into the top 5 every year instead, which potentially hurts even more if they get some game changers. Crossing our fingers that they all bust is kind of pointless.
I don't understand why people aren't giving the Rams any credit for their 1st round drafting, their record last year was due to injuries more than anything. Robert Quinn posted a solid 5 sack rookie season, Chris long has ripped us apart every year since he was drafted in 08. Their one recent first round "bust" was O-lineman Jason Smith in 09. Sam bradford struggled last year but still shows a ton of promise, he should be good once they're able to surround him with some talent.
They aren't the raiders, they don't generally just waste 1st round picks.
