    Marques Hagans

    With the recent resigning of Marques Hagans, I thought we could get some discussion going about him and his future with the Rams. I honestly don't know much about him but what I just rad and am about to repost. After reading his strengths he sounds like an ideal KR/PR, but obviously he didn't show enough to get a shot at it, even with us struggling so bad there.

    Height: 5-10
    Weight: 205
    40 Speed: 4.65*
    Position: Wide Receiver
    College: Virginia

    "SUMMARY

    Hagans was a very productive running-style quarterback at Virginia, but at under 5-foot-10, he will need to switch to another position to have an NFL career -- teams should look at him first at receiver, but he has the athleticism to also be tried at running back and defensive back. He is a very good athlete with the foot quickness, agility, playing speed and elusiveness to make plays as a receiver. He is a smart kid who should be able to learn a new position at the highest level. He has all the physical tools to become a good No. 3 receiver who can excel lining up as a slot receiver and will contribute as a returner and could be a valuable option quarterback choice in 2-point situations. You must not over-draft him, but he would be a solid late-round pick or free-agent signing.

    STRONG POINTS

    Hagans is a very good athlete with the quick feet, agility and balance to make plays with the ball in his hands. In workouts, he has shown good hands catching the ball. He is a dangerous runner in the open field which will enable him to be a good runner after the catch -- he can make tacklers miss and has the balance to keep his feet vs. hits. He has the quickness and agility to get in and out of cuts quickly to run good pass routes -- he showed it in workouts. He is a very good kid with all the mental intangibles that you could ever ask for in a player asked to switch positions in the NFL.

    WEAKNESSES

    Obviously, Hagans is an athlete and not an established receiver having played quarterback in college. While he has looked good in workouts, he has virtually no experience lining up as a receiver and will need to learn the position at the highest level. He is shorter than ideal for a receiver and does not have the elite playing speed to be a home run threat -- he's more quick than fast."

    Re: Marques Hagans

    I would say punt return, thats what we all wanted to see him as, and I think thats more than likely going to be his role on this team.

    since we most likely are going to lose mcdonald and curtis,maybe hagans and looker can step up into those roles and then we draft a receiver somewhere in the moddle rounds to bring along.it would be risky if bruce or holt went down,but might be worth a shot.

    I am not sure we will lose both Curtis and MacDonald. I think we keep Curtis and let Mac walk.

    I think we are looking at a possible PR/KR in Hagans. I also am not going to spend to much time thinking about an offseason roster spot. I mean were talkin off season roster spot.

    It is the offseason, what else are we supposed to talk about?

    That's the best case scenario, but realistically is very unlikely.

    I would hope that in Year Two, Hagans can contribute as a 4th or 5th receiver and a return man. We'll see.
