    question for nick and the gang, who are the magic 8

    LaRAm raised this first, so i take no credit for the thread, but he usually does, laram has asked a fine question worth its own speculation and debate.

    Who were the magic 8 guys that the rams took completely off their draft board for character concerns. Interesting in the context of taking wroten last year.

    I wonder if tank tyler was one of them

    ramming speed to all

    Who was on the "Do Not Draft" list?

    In emphasizing a commitment to character, the Rams were forced to remove some highly regarded prospects from their draft board. In all, the team had eight players that were immediately placed on the “Do Not Draft” board. Those players were not, under any circumstance, to be considered for drafting.

    The Rams would not name names of those they refused to pick, but Linehan indicated that four were chosen, two on the first day and two on the second.
    So who do you think was on the list?

    Let's break it down like this:

    1. Who were the two first day selections?
    2. Who were the two second day selections?
    3. Who were the four undrafted?

    We will probably never know, but it should be fun making our case for our speculations.

    I'm guessing Brandon Meriweather the 24th pick by the New England Patriots?

    I'd guess these six are on the list:

    Marshawn Lynch
    Brandon Merriweather
    DeMarcus "Tank" Tyler
    Eric Wright
    Brandon Siler
    Marcus Thomas

    Maybe some, but not all. Linehand said 2 were drafted 1st day, 2 on the 2nd day, and 4 were undrafted.

    Here's my guess:

    Day 1: Brandon Meriwether & Eric Wright
    Day 2: Marcus Thomas & Tarelle Brown
    Undrafted: Ramonce Taylor, Walter Thomas, Rory Johnson, & Nate Harris

    It's impossible to say who the four undrafted were since the pool of undrafted talent is immense. Who knows which specific players they were speaking of. As for the others, I would guess....

    Day One: Tank Tyler, Brandon Meriweather, maybe Eric Wright

    Day Two: Marcus Thomas, maybe Tanard Jackson or Tarell Brown?
