    Does Ronald Bartell Excel in Year 3

    I am a new member to the ClanRamForums and mkaing my first post regarding a player who I read a lot about coming out of college and prior to the 2005 NFL Draft - Ronald Bartell. This is a player who I would love to see make it in the NFL because of his desire to be a student of the game. Smart player with good measurables, and finished last season with a good game against the Vikings. Is this guy going to make a bigger leap in his third season?

    Depends. He sat the bench most of the season. I guess it depends if the coaches give him the chance to play or not.

    Welcome to the CLan.

    As far as Bartell being something. I don't think he'll ever be a strong starter. But I'm sure he could be a good fill in.

    I think Bartell is one of the best young defenders on this team. The problem is.....he doesn't have an exact position just yet. He's been bounced back and forth between FS and CB the past two years, and he's yet to find a home. However, he finished the season very strong, and looks to push time at (my best guess) CB.

    I agree. In the last few games he looked very strong. Particulary against Washington (He had about 5 tackles for a loss on the runningback), against Oakland looked very strong and of course against Minnesota.

    I like what he brings to the table and hopefully he can continue the success.

    I believe we saw only a glimpse of things to come from Bartell at the end of the season. In the future I expect him to be a big playmaker in the secondary. And the guy is fast...he runs like a gazelle!

    Allthough Bartell sat most of the Season, when he did play he made a difference, he's like a ball hawk. He's a hybrid, so I think the Rams utalize him, and different spots on the field. Only thing I'm not really sure of is his williness to tackle and get dirtly. But what is working in his favor is the fact that the last few games he played in, we were a beast on defense. The one game he really shined in was the game against Minnesota.

    I expect to make Bartell make an even bigger impact this year. Last year he came on extremely strong at the end of the year and hopefully he can make the same impact starting in game one this season.

    Re: Does Ronald Bartell Excel in Year 3

    i think bartell is gonna be a huge star in the NFL i just hope and pray he has his best years with us!

    i really didnt like atogwe and bartell having to go head to head on a D which needed to have as much talent as we could get on the field,im really hyped about our db core,i think all we are missing is a young toby wright,nothing against chavous; i like what he brings to the table but i want an SS that can really hurt people and put a truckload of fear into them when they got the ball in their hands!

    Re: Does Ronald Bartell Excel in Year 3

    I think perhaps we should find a stronger SS as we'll love chavos but I almost wonder if he would be a better FS with our current staff, I always think of the FS as the leader of the DB's, and again with our staff I see chavos leading the youngsters.

    I think that Bartell will start this year and have his growing pains, but he has size and speed for the CB position.

    Re: Does Ronald Bartell Excel in Year 3

    the rams drafted him because of his potential, as a cb who could play at safety because of his size and speed, HUbison and VIPER made a great point about being moved around and not having a position. but at the end of the year, he WAS the nickle back, and he will be there unless he unseats fakir brown. but he excelled because he was settled on a position, and i believe that he will be a major presence on the defense this year at CB. i think he is all done at safety with CHAVOUS, ATOGWE, CARTER, and ALSTON being put there. i beleive that a few years ago, ( like 2) our backfield was one of the worst in the league, now i think we are #8, i am very excited about this young backfield, now let's just keep them intact, and signed.
