Best LB in the draft, IMO. This kid is going to be a leader and a player. He won't make the flashy plays but he'll be a consistent 125 tackle per year type of guy and he will lead that defense. Glad he went to the NFC.

As few first-round picks agree to terms, a guy who was supposed to be a first-round pick but ended up being a second-round pick has agreed to terms.
According to Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Rams have agreed to terms with linebacker James Laurinaitis, formerly of Ohio State.
It's a four-year deal.
Per Thomas, the Rams also are making progress with tackle Jason Smith, the second overall selection in the entire draft.
