    This is frickin awesome. Now Murphy or Johnson can be converted into an FS for when Quintin Mikell is too old (hes 31).

    Rams seem to like Jo Lonn Dunbar at SLB, so we'll see if they only end up adding one OLB.

    Don't forget, the Rams added an OL (Wells) who started on a 15-1 Packers team, and a LB (Dunbar) who started 14 games on a 13-3 Saints team. Yes, we need another OG and some more help at the LB spot, but you can't fill every need with a premium pick. You take the best players on your board and fill in as best as you can in the later rounds, with undrafted FAs, and in the second FA phase (post June 1).

    " Coach Jeff Fisher says Johnson will stay at corner. Wanted to fortify that position. With Jenkins and Johnson, he believes they have. "

    I love it. Maybe move Murphy to FS, or we might see Bradley Fletchers release.

    Scott Wells is the center.
    Dunbar can play SLB but as I understand it, they love that he can play all three positions. Sounds like they are looking at him as Chris Draft. Maybe he starts but ideally he's our #1 sub.

    Should we go after another WR in the Draft?

    I'd keep an eye on Chris Givens in Rd. 4.

    What's all this talk about switching positions?

    Finnegan, Fletcher, Murphy, Jenkins, Johnson......that's 5 corners. We went through that many CBs every month last year! How about we not start swapping positions just yet.

    I don't see what you are confused about. Fletcher has blown out his knee twice now and Murphy has never played a regular role on the defense and is also coming back from a major injury. I think it's obvious they don't want to have to depend on them

    I disagree that Fletch should be a 3 or 4 corner. People forget quickly about his 2010 season with the 4 picks and 80 plus tackles. PFW ranked him as one of the ebst tackling corners in the league. Guy is an ideal 2 corner in my opinion.

    Glad that we dont NEED him to be that now and in case his comeback goes awry we have plenty of other options. CB comp in training camp gonna be HEATED

    I think Johnsons going to be starting opposite Finnegan when the season starts.

    I doubt it, unless Jenkins gets arrested I really doubt Johnson starts over Jenkins. Jenkins is more talented and ready to start pretty much now. I wouldn't be surprised to see Johnson start but at safety.
