Under Steve Spagnuolo, the Rams have used the Eagles' multifaceted offense as a primary model. The consensus among team insiders is that, while the Rams appear to have more than a few major needs on both sides of the ball, a few more weapons along the lines of Philadelphia's DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy would be difficult to pass up high in the next draft. It might be different if current weapons like Donnie Avery, Danario Alexander and Mark Clayton could be counted on to stay healthy. "But it seems like all of those guys have major injury issues," one team insider said. "It's a shame to have such a great talent like Bradford and not surround him with as many weapons as possible. If they could come up with a potential No. 1 receiver who can consistently stretch the field, as well as an explosive change-of-pace back to go with Steven Jackson, they could be on to something big."
