Tye Hill wasn't the only 2006 high draft pick to leave St. Louis today. This from NBC Sports:
On the same day that the Rams traded their first-round draft pick from 2006 for a bowl of soup, they also dumped their second-round pick from that season: Joe Klopfenstein.
The Rams have won exactly five games in two seasons since drafting Hill and Klopfenstein. Apparently they weren't the rebuilding solution.
