The St. Louis Rams invested six picks between 2011-2013 at the wide receiver position, all in the fourth round or higher. They've struggled to find consistent production from them.
Pettis averaged 31.6 catches in his first three seasons with 11 starts. He struggled to carve out a big role from the slot and was inactive for the team's win over Seattle on Sunday. The Rams still have Brian Quick, Chris Givens, Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey remaining from their recent draft haul.
