    Rams Combine All You Need To Know

    by: vanram



    Whether or not the St. Louis Rams pick a receiver in the 2011 NFL Draft remains to be seen. Comments from head coach Steve Spagnuolo yesterday at the Combine shattered the conventional wisdom that the Rams will draft Julio Jones in the first round. The teams drafting in front of the Rams might have something to say about that anyway.



    Devaney left open the possibility of the Rams drafting a receiver, based on the team taking the best player available in at whatever pick they have in the draft. Asked by TST whether or not the expected development of players like Donnie Avery and Danario Alexander, Devaney said this:
    So if a good player's there at that position, we're not going to say, 'We're set. We'll have all these guys back.' If (a wide receiver) happens to be the best player at that time, then we go with it.
    Setting aside the possibility of Jones, I had the chance to talk with some receivers at the Combine today that could be later picks for the Rams in the draft including Leonard Hankerson, Jonathan Baldwin and Jerrel Jernigan.

    Steven Jackson looms large in the minds of young running backs


    Oregon State running back Jacquizz Rodgers has generated plenty of interest from NFL teams. He's one of the better scatback types available in the draft this year, and looks like a third round pick.



    Rodgers has had the chance to talk to St. Louis Rams running back and Oregon State alum Steven Jackson a few times over the course of his college career.
    He came to a couple of games, so we had a conversation. We know each other.
    Asked by the Post-Dispatch's Jim Thomas about being paired up with SJ39, Rodgers smiled and said:
    That would be good, a back that I can complement since he's a bigger back.
    Rodgers wasn't the only running back to mention Jackson today. Illinois RB and potential first round pick Mikel LeShoure compared himself to Jackson today. Like Jackson, LeShoure is one of a just a few running backs who can "do it all" in the NFL.

    LeShoure is Marshall Faulk's favourite.
    The break, don't bend offense.

    Anybody else a little surprised to see DeMarco Murry reel off a 4.38 40 time?

    "Anybody else a little surprised to see DeMarco Murry reel off a 4.38 40 time?"

    The guy's always been fast, he is just not a sharp cutback runner. Despite that and his durability issues, if he is still around in the 3rd or 4th round, I think the Rams could do worse than take a chance on him.
