NEW YORK – The St. Louis Rams are on the clock. The team with the worst record in the NFL at 1-15 has the No. 1 pick in the April 22-24 draft.
It is the first time the Rams will have the No. 1 overall pick since 1997, when they traded up to take tackle Orlando Pace.
It’s the first No. 1 overall pick the Rams have earned since taking Oregon State quarterback Terry Baker, the Heisman Trophy winner the previous season in 1963. Baker converted to a running back in the pros and lasted three seasons.
They will be followed by the Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Washington, Kansas City, Seattle, Cleveland, Oakland and Buffalo have picks four through nine.
Denver and Jacksonville will have a coin flip for pick No. 10.
Miami, San Francisco, Seattle, the New York Giants, San Francisco, Tennessee, Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Houston round out the next 10.
