    I pick Chris Long. I could see him leading the Rams in sacks!

    I really don't understand your infatuation with darren mcfadden, we have jackson who Is a top 3 back, we don't need 2 backs, whom we would have to pay both 20+ is garunteed money.

    Jackson is a beast when he has at least a decent o-line, last year jackson was his own o-line it seemed like because he would have to break one or 2 tackles at the line of scrimmage to gain yards.

    I understand that he could have the biggest impact IF we didn't have jackson, but we do, and if we don't resign him I know a lot of fans will be upset and we will be in trouble because he is the centerpiece of this offense. Why draft mcfadden when you have a proven player whom you can pay less money to keep probably.(not gonna save much money though lol)
    Just watch, aftr this season you'll be glad we didn't draft mcfadden

    Re: Biggest Impact

    Well according to Scott Wright, Vernon Gholston is the perfect fit for what our RAMS needs are. Who am I to argue with him.

    My vote = Vernon Gholston

    I didn't realize the draft had already happened and that we got all 4 guys.

    No biggie Ramer, secretly wanting the Rams to draft McFadden and watch all the draftnicks go on suicide watch for a week.

    It's cool! Do you really think the Rams will pick McFadden? I like McFadden, but we have Jackson and have bigger needs.

    I have absolutely NO IDEA IN HADES who the Rams are going to pick and anyone who says they do has obviously misremembered how the draft is conducted.

    Re: Biggest Impact

    For 2008, I think the biggest impact comes from Jake Long. Which is to say, he fits two important prerequisites.......early starter & significant improvement over incumbent.

    1. Jake Long replaces Barron from day 1 in my opinion. Our RT position goes from the most penalized to the least penalized overnight.

    2. Chris Long rotates with Hall, Little & Vic early on, and is starting by mid season. Significant improvement over incumbents.

    3. Vernon Gholston will need a little longer to adjust than Long, but should be a significant improvement. However, his contributions on obvious passing situations will be apparent from day 1.

    4. Glenn Dorsey will be in the rotation early, but won't be much of a significant improvement over Carriker at UT.

    McFadden would be a situational back taking Minor's spot on the roster.
