Fisher greatly improved the Rams team in 2012 posting a 7-8-1 overall record, and a NFC West record of 4-1-1 becoming an instant success with his new team. He now has 29 fresh faces in camp and should have no problems finding spaces for the majority of his rookies with all the holes he is still trying to fill.

His biggest hole is still trying to find a suitable replacement for departed running back Steven Jackson. As of now Daryl Richardson is considered the starter, but by the end of training camp Benny Cunningham could be the feature back running behind former Miami Dolphins tackle Jake Long and all-purpose rookie lineman Barrett Jones if he is healthy.

Even though the running back situation is in the air, the passing game will definitely be fixed this season. After being able to spend a year with quarterback Sam Bradford and trying to figure out what players would work best for him, Fisher drafted college teammates Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey to fill his speedster rolls on the outside. Austin and Bailey both had amazing 2012 seasons at West Virginia leading the Mountaineers in receiving combining for 2,911 yards and 37 touchdowns.

Fisher also found talent to improve his 15th ranked defense by drafting troubled linebacker Alec Ogletree despite his DUI arrest earlier this year. Ray Ray Armstrong should also fit in at linebacker with the way he likes to hawk to the ball despite his troubled career at Miami and not playing in 2012. If Fisher can keep both of these beasts focused on causing destruction on the field and not in their personal lives; this defense will be a top 5 or 7 defense in the league with all the additions Fisher has made in his first two seasons.
