Rams are 20th in PFT’s preseason power rankings

The St. Louis Rams are no longer one of the worst teams in the NFL.

The Rams won just 15 games in five seasons between 2007 and 2011 but have risen back into the middle class of the league over the past two seasons. St. Louis has won seven games in each of the last two years but has yet to mount a true challenge against the Seattle Seahawks or San Francisco 49ers for control of the division. The Arizona Cardinals even usurped the Rams as the biggest threat to the Seahawks and 49ers in 2013.

We have the Rams ranked 20th in the league as teams close in on their reporting dates for training camp. Sam Bradford’s performance will go a long way toward determining the fate of the Rams this season and whether St. Louis will be in the quarterback market again next spring.

Our full Rams preview is located here. Tell us in the poll below if you feel the Rams deserve the ranking we gave them heading into the season.

    I *think* they should be higher, but they have to go out and prove it this season. They’ve had a couple passes already for various reasons/excuses…it’s time to produce regardless.

    Talk radio in St. Louis would have you think otherwise. They predict 10-6 or 12-4 every year.

    they sure scored with the RGIII trade. One of the most lopsided trades that will keep on giving for the next decade.

    If those players pan out, they Rams will challenge the ‘Hawks and 49’ers AND the Cards. Maybe not this year, but next year and beyond.

    This team is going to surprise a lot if teams this year… That RG3 trade set them up for 5 years… Talent everywhere.. Would not surprise me is they are too team in 2016

    Whatever ranking 7-9 gets you– that’s where the Rams should be. Because you can always count on Jeff Fisher going 7-9.

    Make or brake year for Bradford. Not a Ram fan but I would like to see them do well. If Bradford is a bust, probably bring in a veteran QB next year.

    The Rams are tough.

    20 is WAY too low.

    15 easy.

    Go ahead, name 14 teams better.

    They’ll have the best D-line in the NFL. An easy top 5 team if they weren’t in the division they are in. NFC west is crazy good and will most likely drag each other’s records down. 20 says you don’t know what you are talking about. None of these rankings mean anything till week 3 anyway, because that’s when you actually get a gauge of what teams actually are on the field…

    Peyton Manning will not survive his encounter with the Rams front four this year. Aaron Donald makes this group terrifying.

    Thank God Russell Wilson has wheels!

    10-6 at best……..7-9 at worst………..

  14. nflgiant says: Jul 15, 2014 9:55 AM

    Bradford is the weak link on this team.

    We’re ranked too low IMO. Put us in the NFC East or the AFC South and we have a much better chance at winning the division.
