Rams add DT Aaron Donald with #13 pick

(KSDK Sports) -- St. Louis clearly wants to make a dent in the NFC West, and the Rams just made their defense much better by getting a defensive tackle that can break through the line and get to the quarterback with ease.

Donald, paired with Robert Quinn, Chris Long and Michael Brockers, makes for a scary defensive line combo. Having to compete with the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers (two of the better defenses in the NFL) was obviously on everyone's mind in the Rams' war room.

Donald is dangerous, and now the Rams have a dangerous defense.

Short bio: No player in this year's draft class was more productive or decorated than Donald. The undersized (6-0, 285) defensive tackle is lighting quick off the snap, but he can also anchor in the run game against much bigger offensive linemen.

Quick take: The Rams led the NFL is sacks last season. Their defensive line got even better with the addition of Donald. Donald will slide seamlessly into the Rams rotation alongside Michael Brockers and Kendall Langford. Donald will be expected to collapse the pocket on third down with Chris Long and Robert Quinn coming off the edge.
