Post-Draft Outlook:COULD SURPRISE: CB Bradley Fletcher has size, speed and toughness, and could come in and compete immediately for a spot in the cornerback rotation or in the nickel defense. A closer look at the Rams' picks: Round 3/66 -- Bradley Fletcher, CB, 6-1, 196, Iowa...Rams believe he will be a good press-type corner because of his size and "length." Is considered tough, will play the run and contribute on special teams. Might also see some time at safety. - by The Sports Xchange
