Yes, you heard right: Ray Anderson, who announces the second-round picks now that Roger Goodell is having a few highballs (or something) in the Green Room, announced the team as the "St. Louis Cardinals."

Anyway ...

I like the James Laurinaitis pick for the Rams, who need more playmakers on defense. He's about as low-risk as you get in this draft, and though he might never be a Pro Bowler, you're talking about a tackle machine who will fill the Antonio Pierce role in Steve Spagnuolo's defense, or, if you will, the Jon Beason role in Ken Flajole's unit.

Whatever. He's good. A real smart, motivated, tough kid.
