    Re: Now That We Know Where The Rams Will DRaft...

    RAMarkable, D'Brickashaw Ferguson (Virginia) and Eric Winston (Miami) are two college offensive tackles, both of whom I would project as first round picks.

If not Burnett, then maybe Ruud or Mitchell.

    Or maybe we go a different direction all together and go get our FS in the 1st round, like Nicholson or Davis, or a CB, say Webster, Rogers, or Huff.

    I'm afraid if one of either McNeil, Brown, Burnett, Nicholson, Davis or Webster are not available, we'll pay 1st round money for 2nd round talent. If none of those guys are here, maybe trade our 1st rounder for the Packers two 2nd rounders. Three 2nd round picks wouldn't be too bad.
    I think after Derrick Johnson, Kevin Burnett is clearly the best outside linebacker on the board and - depending on what his combine numbers look like - I wouldn't be upset at all if the Rams took him. I really wish we had a shot at Ahmad Brooks, but I've actually heard reports that he didn't look good at all in his bowl appearance, and rumor has it he's not coming out this year anyways. Rian Wallace is getting a lot of buzz around his name recently, so perhaps someone to keep your eye on, although I've seen reports saying he struggles in coverage... not good for a linebacker coming into a Cover 2 system, I guess.

    Thomas Davis and Donte Nicholson are better fits at strong safety, I think. Both are in that Roy Williams mold. Brodney Poole is probably the top free safety prospect, in my opinion. But with the signing of Antuan Edwards (and hopefully his resigning), we won't need to look for a safety early on.

    Corey Webster's stock has been dropping a bit. If we could nab Justin Miller, I'd be quite happy. Carlos Rogers would also be a good acquisition, although I'm not sure how good of value we'd get by taking him in the latter half of the first round.

    If we can't nab brown or McNeill in the first round, I agree that our next target should be a linebacker. Unfortunately, after Johnson or Burnett and maybe Channing Crowder, I'm not sure if there's really a linebacker worth a first round pick. Burnett and Crowder might be pushing it, but could solidify their spot with a good combine... plus, I don't even know if Crowder is official yet. If both the offensive tackle and linebackers are off our board, then I think we could either go cornerback or offensive guard (still have my heart set on Baas for us at some point), or hell, maybe even Heath Miller. Once you start taking away first and second options, it's tough to find what you want. A lot of people have us taking defensive ends, but I don't think we need to devote any more early picks to defensive lineman.

    This isn;t looking like hte best draft in terms of talent and its not lining up the way it should for the rams at either OL or LB so i would go for a TE (i.e. We need someone that can catch a pass in the middle like manu did this past week a little more often.) in the first round or we trade up (give away one of our thirds to move ahead of carolina for example).

    What about USC's Coady??? That should be a good pick. He could play DE or DT.

    During a radio interview, they said Armey would only use a 1st round pick on a LT. Since we already have Pace there I can not see them taking a tackle in the first round. Going on there past drafts, they will take a player for a position that we already have a strenght at.

    Cody would be decent for us at defensive end, but we seem fairly set there. He's undersized for the interior of the defensive line, and would probably get pushed around. I think if we go after D-linemen, I'd rather go after someone with more bulk. His speed is impressive though, and if we feel like we need more defensive ends, he might be a good choice in the later rounds.

    On an interesting note, Florida's Channing Crowder and Georgia's Odell Thurman have both declared. Crowder has the physical skills of a first day pick but has had some off the field issues that are concerning. Thurman would probably have benefitted from another year at college - he seems like a bit of a project despite having good natural skills. Not great speed though.

    As long as we don't go DT early, I'd love to see a wide body in the middle of the draft somewhere. How about a guy like Albert Means from Memphis. He's 6'4" about 350 pounds, should be around in the middle rounds. He might be a good 4th round pick-up. He's got a big frame and can keep multiple blockers occupied to make holes for our LBs or stunting DEs.

    Re: Now That We Know Where The Rams Will DRaft...

    I'd like to see the Rams look at the following positions with their first 4 picks:


    Round 1: LB
    Round 2: RT
    Round 3 (Dolphins pick): CB
    Round 3 (Rams pick): OG

    I would consider packaging the Rams first pick and third pick to move up in the fist round to get a top LB.

    Pretty slim pickings at LB this year after Derrick Johnson and he will be gone within the first 5 picks. To get up to the number 5 spot, we would have to give up our whole draft to do it. I think one of Burnett, Crowder, Wallace, or Mitchell will be available in the mid 20's (or hopefully at 32, where I'd rather be picking next April).

    Re: Now That We Know Where The Rams Will DRaft...

    Johnson will be a top 10 pick, for sure. Perhaps not a top 5, depending on whether the teams at the top are looking offense or defense. We'll have to see which Juniors declare before we'll know if there's a LB that could be worth trading up to get.


    I also wouldn't be too upset if the Rams traded up to get Antrelle Rolle. While I don't think CB is the Rams' top need, he is going to be a huge playmaker (and is big enough to possibly play FS).

    Re: Now That We Know Where The Rams Will DRaft...

    Well I could be wrong but, Isn't the lack of LB'S the reason the special teams suck so bad? And I remember in recent years when we had alot of LB'S , special teams wasn't an issue! :ramlogo:

    Using your positions AV, here's what I would like to see happen.

    1 - LB - Kevin Burnett - a burner that's fits our defense perfectly
    2 - RT - Jon Dunn - Va Tech RT and he's a big one, 6'7" 340 lbs.
    3 - CB - Bryant McFadden - A very physical Florida St. CB to be just 180 lbs.
    3 - OG - Sam Mayes - Huge OG from Okie St., 6'3" 350 lbs, great run blocker
