    Rams Roster Shaping Up Nicely

    Here's the current starting line-up. Players in bold are players who the Rams should consider upgrading in the draft of free agency if the opportunity presents itself. Players in italics are those who have a question mark attached to them due to health or other (Leonard Little) considerations.

    QB: Marc Bulger
    RB: Steven Jackson
    FB: Joey Goodspeed
    WR: Torry Holt
    WR: Isaac Bruce
    LT: Orlando Pace
    LG: Blaine Sapaia
    C: Andy McCollum
    RG: Adam Timmerman
    LT: Scott Tercero
    TE: Brandon Manumaleuna

    DE: Leonard Little
    DT: Jimmy Kennedy
    DT: Ryan Pickett
    DE: Tony Hargrove
    OLB: Pisa Tinoisamoa
    MLB: Chris Claiborne
    OLB: Dexter Coakley
    CB: Travis Fisher
    CB: Jeremetrius Butler
    SS: Adam Archuleta
    FS: Michael Stone

    So, clearly the biggest needs are on the O line and the DBs. I almost didn't put Fisher and Butler in the "upgrade category," as I think they are adequate. But the draft is very deep at CB, so the Rams could get a chance for a real upgrade there.

    Re: Rams Roster Shaping Up Nicely

    I agree with you for the most part but I'd say the defense should look a little more like this:

    DE: Leonard Little
    DT: Jimmy Kennedy
    DT: Ryan Pickett
    DE: Tony Hargrove
    OLB: Brandon Chillar
    MLB: Chris Claiborne
    OLB: Dexter Coakley
    CB: Travis Fisher
    CB: Jeremetrius Butler
    SS: Pisa Tinoisamoa
    FS: Adam Archuleta

    Perhaps, though from what I've been reading, I just don't think that Pisa is going to move to SS.

    Well basically we're without a FS right now. Michael Stone is a ST player only and if he somehow made it onto the defensive depth chart he'd be a SS.

    You've confirmed my suspicions AV...we need a FS!

    I dont think travis fisher needs to be upgraded at all. Depth back there, sure. Safety absolutely. Right tackle? The number one consideration or we are right back where we were all year this year.

    Unless the Rams get a shot at Antrel Rolle or Adam "Pac Man" Jones, I would stick with Fisher and Butler.

    Re: Rams Roster Shaping Up Nicely

    personally, i covet carlos rogers more than rolle and pacman jones...seen them play on tape and rogers is clearly the most agile and has great ball skills...his combine numbers indicate that he has the best agility of any player in this draft, which is amazing considering he is 6'1" and 190+...but more than the numbers he seems to make big plays in nearly every single game...

    rolle may be the most consistent/safest, and hyped player due to his PR the last two seasons on the miami media frenzy but the least athletic of the three...jones is the smallest at 5'11" but is the most aggressive hitter i've ever seen at the CB position...he throws his entire body into every tackle he attempts, which may shorten his nfl career...but he also returns kickoffs and punts for the mountaineers...

    Man, sounds like Arch's little brother. A back injury waiting to happen. Don't get me wrong, love the little guys that bring everything they got to the table, but the human body just can't do that long or often at the pro level.

    Re: Rams Roster Shaping Up Nicely

    Here's my line-up.

    QB: Marc Bulger
    RB: Steven Jackson
    FB: Joey Goodspeed (still needs to be signed)
    WR: Torry Holt
    WR: Isaac Bruce
    LT: Orlando Pace
    LG: Scott Tercero
    C: Andy McCollum
    RG: Adam Timmerman
    LT: Blaine Sapaia (or rookie?)
    TE:Brandon Manumaleuna/Rolland Willimams (split time)

    DE: Leonard Little / (D Lew if L is gone)
    DT: Jimmy Kennedy
    DT: Ryan Pickett
    DE: Tony Hargrove
    OLB: Pisa Tinoisamoa
    MLB: Chris Claiborne
    OLB: Dexter Coakley
    CB: Travis Fisher
    CB: Jeremetrius Butler / or Dwight Anderson
    SS: Adam Archuleta
    FS: TBA

    I think there will be a FA FS starting the season. Dwight Anderson really impressed me last pre-season with his agressiveness, Look out JB.

    JB is the better of our two corners, IMO. With all the dumb penalties Anderson took on special teams, nothing has shown me he can mentally handle starting at CB.
