This is what I fear. Honestly, if I were the Rams, I'd do it. They still have another first round pick. With the way things are looking right now, they can use the higher of the first round picks on Watkins, then use the other first round pick and their second to address O-line. I'm still not sure if Bradford is the guy, but he is sure to get another shot at starter. Even if they do draft a QB, I don't think its before the 3rd round. The only way they don't go QB is if Bridgewater is available where they draft (not likely).
Who cares? They can have 5 top 10 WRs. It won't matter. They have a mediocre QB, bad O-line and no running game. And their defense is "meh". So, yeah, I hope they load up on WR.
Without the other positions to make it work... drafting high-profile WRs is all flash, no substance. Exhibit A: Tavon Austin. Exhibit B: pre-Harbaugh Michael Crabtree. Exhibit C: Every Lions WR not named CJ. And so on...
