    Rams Saffold one of the biggest steals?

    NFL.com published an article talking about which teams may have potential super stars: 10 of them.

    Here is what they had to say about Rodger Saffold:

    Rodger Saffold, OT, Rams
    The team's decision to keep Saffold at left tackle over former No. 2 overall pick Jason Smith is indicative of his potential to blossom into a franchise-caliber player at the position. His sound footwork and fundamentals will make him a perennial Pro Bowler in St. Louis

    Lets hope he keeps progressing. Also, I don't really care about the Jason Smith being a RT even though he was drafted at #2 overall. They are both starting and hopefully keep getting better. That's all that matters.

    I'd have to agree with what you say.. I dont care if he was the #2 pick just as long as he blocks and is a bad *** I have nothing to say.We need to get our darn Guards in order

    I don't mind having Smith at right tackle. It shouldn't be indicative of Smith's lack of ability to play LT, rather it should be used as a sign of how good Saffold has been.

    If Smith had been bumped to guard, i would be bothered

    No doubt about it, Saffold was superb for a rookie second rounder who nobody mentioned in great detail before the 2010 draft. Smith is average at best and may very well go the same route as another 2nd overall pick,(Robert Gallery), who ended up playing his best football after being moved to guard.

    People are writing off Jason Smith like hes some kind of bust already. When we drafted him he was considered "raw" and was going to take a while to develop, but he had great upside. Now he has a full season under his belt. Lets see if he can start maximizing his potential.

    Being the 2nd overall pick and with all that money he receives because of it. People are always going to quite harsh towards him until he produces and proves them wrong.

    You can blame Shurmer for most of that...
