    Devaney Breaks Down Late Picks

    Devaney Breaks Down Late Picks
    By Jeff Gordon
    Here was his take on the bottom-of-the-draft guys:
    Overall: “They were needs, they were good players that were on the board at the time. As you get down in the draft, everybody’s board kind of falls apart. You probably start reaching a little bit to fill a need. You try to stay close within a grade. These guys all have a chance. They will come in and compete.”
    Brooks Foster, WR: “To be the third receiver on a team with two first-round (quality) picks is nothing to be ashamed of.”
    Keith Null, QB: “This guy has size, he has arm strength. He moves around pretty good. He’s not a great athlete, but he has slide ability. He is a smart guy, all of those things.”
    (Devaney isn’t a big Ryan Leaf fan, for obvious reasons, but he didn’t mind that Leaf was Null’s position coach. “We certainly didn’t hold it against him that Ryan was there,” Devaney said.)
    Chris Ogbonnaya, RB: “He is a physical, slashing runner. He’ll fit what we’re trying to do. He is a downhill, power kind of guy.”
    Steve Spagnuolo was pleased with the Foster addition. “He is a big wideout for us,” he said. “We feel fortunate to get him.”
    No, no, the Rams aren’t on the prowl for a veteran WR.
    “I don’t think anybody feels a strong neeed to go out and get a veteran guy,” Spagnuolo said.

    I thought this was the reason they got these guys th CB will play nickel and special teams for a while so will the WR we got. The Big DT will be apart of the rotation the QB because we might be able get a good pick for him eventually and the RB just in case
