I'f agree with a lot of the names you've posted but I'm sure Ricky Proehl will get a roster spot.
I'm not sure if they'll carry 3 centers and probably Newell won't make the team.
I've a sneaky feeling that Allred will make it either as a TE or maybe at FB. also I hear Cason has starred at mini camp might have a shout at making it.
Unfortunately Miller and Word were released so that will leave a couple of defensive spots on the roster , maybe Devin Bush will get one of them but he might be a goner even with his re-worked contract. I'd like to see Bowen given a chance but I don't think they will carry him and Coady :(
Right roster for Rams...
Ricky Proehl's experience and hands are too valuable to not be part of the main events. Also, I can't see Arch and Lewis as starters at D during the starting games this season. I'd like to see a Gaylon Hyder or a Jeff Zgonina there as DTs instead.
One can only imagine the complexity of both the O and D schemes that coaches have to design and study! Talk about a professional career... to bring out the best players and plans at the best time; to bring out the best IN the best!
To win another championship with the right roster for the Rams.
Nice job though, IkeRam! :) Thanks for your logistics behind that weapons list. That's some ammo! :cool:
Hayder bombed in Europe , he wasn't even starting for the Rhein Fire , I don't know whether he has problems but he is not an NFL standard player at present. I think he was released along with Miller last week.
Personally I'd probably like to see Lewis starting Ithink he could be a force from day 1 , I'd hope it might be Agnew filling the other spot at DT to give some experience and use Zgonina and A.N. OTHER in the rotation. I must admit the more I read about Pickett the more I reckon he is more of a project than I would like , especially taken in the first round.
Likewise Arch looks like a project and I'd be surprised ( and happy) if he starts week 1.
Thanks for the update DodRAM. I wasn't aware.
On second thought, I'll have to agree. Perhaps those two rookies, Archuleta and Lewis, ARE impact players from the get go. Rams did, afterall, come up with a solid selection at the draft.
Obviously, Martz and company know what they're doing because they know what the players are doing. ...And what they are capable of. :)
I'm glad IkeRam started this thread, I appreciate the info.
I'll stay tuned for the latest news as the preseason approaches.
ClanRam is the place to be! "1-2-3-RAMS-HUP!!!" (eager and excited Rams at pep meeting)... Yeah! :D
I'd like to second the thanks to Ikeram for starting thethread, it certainly made me stop & think for awhile. i just can't wait for training camp never mind actual games:D
I haven't heard yet how soon Polley is going to start. So far just special teams and backup LB is all I have heard for him.
