    Always Look on the Bright Side of Life

    Here are a few Rams related things that I'm happy about...

    1. A nice side benefit of having the first pick overall is that the Rams are getting more national coverage than they have in a long time. Certainly more coverage than the past two years when the Rams had the second pick.

    2. Given the new draft format, pick #33 is very valuable. There will be approximately 20 hours between picks 32 and 33. This will give the Rams time to field trade offers, which should be plentiful. Given the depth of this year's draft, the Rams may be able to turn pick #33 into a later Round 2 pick plus and extra Round 3 pick without losing the ability to take the player they want.

    3. Who isn't looking forward to an end of all discussions regarding ownership and the city where the Rams will play? Stability, Thy name is Khan.

    4. While I guess it is possible that the Eagles might still trade Vick after paying him his roster bonus, the greater likelihood is that the Vick issue will be resolved in the next week. Certainly, if the Rams do want Vick, they should trade for him now when the pressure is on the Eagles to get a deal done before March 5.

    5. Two months from now, we'll all be looking forward to watching Sam Bradford, Ndamukong Suh or Gerald McCoy (no, I'm not buying that the Rams might take Clausen No. 1 overall) wearing the horns. Whoever it is, that will be something to really look forward to.

    6. Say what you will about the negative side of the uncapped season, but the Rams do benefit to the extent there is no chance that they will lose O.J. Atogwe and Clifton Ryan (unless they decide to trade them) and they can keep Alex Barron without giving him a long-term deal.

    7. Who knew Billy Devaney had so much personality?

    8. It really is a great thing that Bernie writes such insightful articles for this website.

    I wouldn't be so hasty to write off the chances of Clausen being drafted first overall: he is more "pro ready" than Bradford and has fewer health issues. Ideally, we'd trade down to get him and some extra picks but he could be taken at one if no decent offers are available.

    I'm excited because we will see at least 4 new starters come out of this draft. Keep adding star power Billy D!

    Let us not forget that one other bright spot is that our new prospective owner is committed to football, thus he is committed to improving our team!

    Yeah i made a topic about this on the draft board. With the Rams picking first on all three days, and time for teams to stew on who they want, the Rams are in a good position to trade down.

    17) Our team may suck, but we have a lot of bright spots like long, laurinitis. OJ, butler, and our next draft pick and one or two FA moves.
