With the 10th pick in the first round of the 2015 CSC Mock Draft, the St. Louis Rams have traded their selection to...
What's that?
...
You mean I can't trade down?
...
Why not?!
...
Who cares if it's a mock draft? Teams need to trade down, damn it!
...
Okay, FINE.

The St. Louis Rams select Andrus Peat, Tackle, Stanford.

Dude gets quality marks in pass protection and run blocking, something the Rams are desperately in need of. The Rams surrendered a lot of sacks the last few years, and quarterback protection will be important considering they just acquired Nick Foles from the Eagles. Foles, who had a dynamite 2013 starting with the Eagles, regressed in 2014, missing half the season with an injury. Protection will be key.

The Rams are in need of a wide receiver (a speedster in particular) but why get a receiver if you can't protect your quarterback long enough to get the ball out? Plus, the Rams have started to transition into more of a run-first offense. The team made strides late in '14, even with a weak O-Line. So by improving the O-Line, you're improving a running game that is primed for big things. You make the running game look good, defenses are creeping up and become susceptible to play-action. 
Rinse and repeat.
