    Rams 2008 53-man Roster (Post Draft Version)

    Here's my first crack at the 2008 roster:

    QB (3): Bulger, Greene, Berlin
    RB/FB (5): Jackson, Pittman, Leonard, Minor, McAnderson
    WR (6): Holt, Bennett, Avery, Burton, Caldwell, Stanley
    TE (3): McMichael, Klopfenstein, Becht
    OL (9): Pace, Barron, Bell, Incognito, Setterstrom, Greco, Scheuning, Romberg, Fry
    DE (4): Little, Long, Hall, Adeyanju
    DT (4): Carriker, Ryan, Glover, Wroten
    LB (6): Witherspoon, Tinoisamoa, Draft, Culberson, McGarigle, Vobora
    CB (6): Hill, F.Brown, Bartell, Wade, King, Macklin
    S (4): Atogwe, Chavous, Carter, Johnson
    K (1): J.Brown
    P (1): Jones
    LS (1): Massey

    I see Chamberlain as a project who will likely start the year on the practice squad.

    McAnderson, signed as an undrafted FA, has a good chance of making the roster if he shows some promise as a lead blocking FB.

    Vobora and McGarigle get roster spots at this point pretty much by default, as the Rams are pretty thin at LB. I would expect them to sign a veteran after the June 1 cuts are made.

    I also have Berlin as the #3 QB, though I hope the Rams will try to find some competition there as well. Perhaps they will look to make a trade for some other team's #3, much like the Bengals traded for Fitz last year. Another guy who might be worth a look is Byron Leftwich, who is currently a free agent.

    At safety, Bassey could crack the lineup and supplant Johnson or Carter, given his special teams prowess. The Rams might also look at the post-June 1 cuts to bolster this position.

    I don't see Stanely making it. I see the human joystick as the final WR, for special team purposes, He ran two back last year. That's what you want from a kick or punt returner, two or more a season.

    WR is the only area I see that I don't completely agree with. Your version maybe 100% accurate but I don't like Reche Caldwell one bit.

    The guys been in the league 6 years and really hasn't done squat.

    152 catches for 1,851 yards, 11 TD's and 7 lost fumbles. The majority of the numbers were compiled in one season with the Patriots.

    I would much rather see us hang onto Hagans or Dante' Hall for that matter.

    Other than that, great list Av.

    If we could get a SS, post-June 1 cuts that would be great.

    I think Hall will makes it, he was just to good last year, if he can stay healthy. He did play WR last year, I don't see him doing that. Maybe he can hold on FG lol. If Hall's only job is to return, he will make some plays.

    I wounder if they will try and use Becht as a lead blocker.


    Wroten last chance, I hope he can turn it around 3rd pick!

    On paper the DB's look weak, Little and Long are going to have to help them out.

    I'm not a big fan of Caldwell either, but I doubt they signed him just to cut him, unless he completely stinks up the joint in training camp.

    As for Hall, I think the two rookie WRs, along with King, may take over the kick and punt returning duties, ending Hall's stay here.

    I think thats pretty decent. I don't see Hall, Hagans and Looker on the squad. I like this.

    Good job AV

    I would still like to see us bring back steussie for depth at tackle, rather than rely on rookies as backups.

    Here's another non-fan of Caldwell, lol.
    I've said it before, and I'll say it again, the only memory I have of him is him dropping that wide open pass for the Patriots in one of the biggest playoff chokes I have ever seen against the Colts a few years ago.

    What about Steven Jackson's boy Yvensen Bernard? Can he get into the running back mix?... Or is he more likely to make the practice squad instead..

    Unless Leonard and Pittman get injured, he's staying in camp.

    I see (or I would like to see) both Halls on 53 R. Dante, of course, but also Vince, our UDFA. I would be really surprised when he wouldn't succeed in competition of Culberson, McGarigle and Vobora. I like Bernard, but he'll hardly reach final roster and McAnderson would be intersting. Should I even mention what I feel about Caldwell!? Somehow, I start to feel sorry for this guy. He's busted! Oh, yes, I hope that FO will finnally reach The Ultimat Conclusion and sign again one and only Mr. CornerRam, Jerametrius Butler!!!

    Hmm your becht comment is interesting. I know they will probably keep him at TE but I think he could actually be the hybrid FB/TE, he is a great blocker. Just speculation.

    If I'm Brock Berlin, I immediately move my locker next to Josh Brown. I take him out to dinner. I buy him presents. I set him up with 18-year-old Asian hookers dressed as Catholic school girls. Whatever it takes to make sure Josh Brown pushes Linehan to keep Berlin as the holder.

    And if I'm Dane Looker, I make sure that Brock Berlin gets one of his hands bitten off by a Rottweiler.
