The Rams' WR corps has been dramatically revamped, with newly acquired Brandon Lloyd and Mark Clayton expected to quickly become the team's No. 1 and No. 2 wideouts, respectively. A few days after being obtained from the Broncos for a conditional sixth-round draft pick, Lloyd wasted no time singing the praises of the Rams' offense coordinated by Josh McDaniels, Lloyd's head coach in Denver for 12 games last season, when he led the NFL in reception yards. "The route tree in this offense is pretty dynamic," Lloyd said. "There's a nice mix of quick game. There's intermediate routes, there's double moves, there's just a lot going on in this offense that caters to my talent." Fresh off the physically-unable-to-perform list after suffering a season-ending knee injury in Week Five last season, our sources believe Clayton could share some time with deep threat Danario Alexander.
