    Rams sign No. 7 pick Chamberlain

    By PFW staff
    July 20, 2008

    Suddenly the Rams are on a roll with their rookie signings.

    A few hours after officially announcing that they had agreed to terms with first-round DE Chris Long, the team announced that seventh-round LB Chris Chamberlain had become the Rams' fifth 2008 draft pick to agree to terms, joining Long, third-round OL John Greco, fourth-round WR Keenan Burton and fifth-round OL Roy Schuening.

    Terms of Chamberlain's deal were not disclosed.

    The 6-1, 230-pound Chamberlain established the University of Tulsa single-season record with 165 tackles in 2007 and finished his collegiate career with 352 tackles and 12˝ sacks. The 352 tackles ranks as the fifth-highest total in school history.

    Both Chamberlain and fellow seventh-round pick LB David Vobora are expected to make immediate contributions to the Rams' thin LB corps, as well as on special teams.

    Chamberlain signs

    By Nick Wagoner

    Senior Writer

    One day after completing a long term deal with first round pick Chris Long, the Rams agreed to a three-year deal with one of their seventh round selections, linebacker Chris Chamberlain.

    Chamberlain is expected to compete for a backup linebacker job, a position that seemingly has plenty of openings. In the short term, though, he will be expected make his biggest impact on special teams, an area most young defenders are asked to show up before getting a chance on defense.

    At Tulsa , Chamberlain was a one man wrecking crew, lining up as a weak side linebacker, a fullback and safety.

    “He is a ‘will’ outside linebacker now,” coach Scott Linehan said in April. “He has the ability to run well and in certain systems or situations, he could probably, in a pinch, (play safety).”

    As a senior, Chamberlain posted 165 tackles in 14 games. He is the fifth Rams draft choice to come to terms on a contract, leaving only second rounder Donnie Avery, fourth round cornerback Justin King and seventh round linebacker David Vobora unsigned.

    Sounds good. Sounds like a player and a versatile player. Should be good on ST and as a good backup for Pisa and maybe Chavous. Hope he becomes a real gem.

    I think with him, Vobora, Eric Bassey, and either Culberson or Draft to go along with Josh Brown and Donnie Jones, and either Dante Hall or Donnie Avery whomever it may be, we have a great special teams!
