    Not a guy I scouted, but he seems to fit the need (OG who can play RT).

    Have to admit, that made me chuckle a bit.

    ...and then to add to some of the comments that actually make sense.... He played guard for his first two seasons at SC then started the first five games of his senior season at right tackle and finished the final eight games as left tackle. What does this mean...IMPROVEMENT. Big body at guard with some tackle skills. Upside is he gets coached up into a starter, downside is he figures in as a solid reserve who we REACHED for in the 5th round...

    What you see is what you get, but what you see depends on where you stand.

    I will pay holy penance for my blasphemy


    Kelemente and Miller were still there, I thought we might go for one of them. But I have faith in Jeff Fisher and Snead. If they like Watkins, I like Watkins.

    Luke, there is absolutely nothing wrong with saying that you prefer other guys over the ones we picked. That is a perfectly respectable opinion and i dont think people on the board jump on you for that. I think what you get jumped on for is the comment that the guy we did pick was a reach because there is simply no way that you or any of the rest of us is qualified to make that judgment. Voicing a view that you liked a different player and explaining why is an entirely different matter.

    You're right, I shouldn't have said "reach," I'm not an NFL scout after all. I was simply surprised and perhaps reacted a bit too quickly.

    I just don't want to be characterized as one of the folks on this board that pooh-poohs every draft. I think this has been a great draft and I'm looking forward to the season.

    Go Rams!
    Nick, shower beers and lostsoul like this.

    How would you like to be in the stall between Rokevious and Brockers without an oxygen mask?

    I'm all for being optimistic when it comes to the draft but how in the world can you be sure about that?

    Biggest Ram in the roster, a good home at guard and I hope for long, successful tenure.
