    Re: Barrett Jones?

    My hope is what happened to Jones in his rookie year starts to happen to a lot of our draft picks. We have been bad for so long and Fishers flipped the roster so quick any player drafted and even UDFA had a chance to play year one. That should not be the case going forward.

    Jeff Fisher said. "So, he’ll be ready to go. Obviously, he’ll know what to do and how to do it, he just hasn’t had an opportunity.”

    That should be more the norm for a player drafted in the fourth round. Heck third round draft choices should have to wait to get playing time. We have a need at guard and center this year so he will get an opportunity this year to compete day one.

    I'll say this, from the only pictures I've seen of him, he looks like a dumpling.

    The most recent ones I can find are from training camp 9 months ago. He never got on the field last year, so are there others more recent?

    Right. Last year's training camp.

    As a former Public High League student-athlete, always proud to attend the St. Louis Public Schools scholar-athlete luncheon at the MAC. Congrats to all attendees. Rams C/G Barrett Jones did a great job as one of the guest speakers at the luncheon.
    And for Rams fans wondering _ yes, Barrett Jones looks bigger and stronger.

    Looks like JT is doing some peeking around at clanram to gain some fan perspective.

    The Rams could do the exact same thing this year with Billy Turner or a James Hurst or even a Jack Mewhort.

    Jones came into the draft with needing to get stronger. There was 1 preseason game I remeber he was un a he stood out in the game, he was consiatantly getting pushed around amd in the backfield. He looked chubby also but that's not saying much, but the guy does need to het stronger. And bench presses don't translate to being an anchor on the los, btw.
