    Free agency or the Draft?

    Which one gets you going the most? The last couple of years its been free agency for me. Especially when we picked up Bennette and DHall. I really thought those two were gonna help us back to the playoffs. now i'm eager to see if we can compliment last years draft with some more young successful talent.

    Well .. the draft is kind of like Christmas in that the contents of the gift packages are obscured by the wrappings .. Rookies remain wrapped until they are exposed to all on the field of play at the NFL level. So one can't be really sure what's in the "gifts" for a year or two, or three.

    Free agency allows one to select a player with knowledge of the player's strengths and weaknesses at the NFL level. Kind of apples and oranges when you compare the two.

    I have never really thought about which I like best, can't say for sure. I will say that if the Rams were to acquire Jason Brown I'd be VERY pleased .. As to who we draft, it's too far away at present for me to contemplate. One thing about the draft is, that on a certain date, all 32 teams will be acquiring new players as opposed to free agency, where a few players go to the highest bidder. I'd say the draft engenders greater anticipation without a doubt.

    im excited about FA...cause it doesnt end as soon as it starts like the draft, so you really dont know what to expect, plus you already get to see the film on the players you pick up...I think this is also whats going to make the difference cause rookies cant really be judged or start to show their potential til about 3-4 years down the line anyways

    The draft falls on the 25th this year, much like my other favorite national holiday.
