(KSDK Sports) -- USA Today football writer Mark J. Rebilas was tasked with picking the MVP of each NFL team. For the Rams, Mark picked defensive end Chris Long.
He and MLB James Laurinaitis remain the heartbeat of a steadily improving defense that benefited from the additions of CBs Cortland Finnegan and Janoris Jenkins, rookie DT Michael Brockers and the emergence of sophomore DE Robert Quinn (10.5 sack) not to mention the swagger infused by first-year coach Jeff Fisher.
But fiery Long continues to anchor the front four from his left end spot while making plenty of splash plays as his 11.5 sacks attest.
Honorable mention: James Laurinaitis.
