Receivers on the horizon?
What receivers do the Rams see on the horizon? We'll lose Hakim this summer, that's my bet, but who will replace him. How about a guy like David Boston? Big, fast, strong. What about a role receiver like Wayne Chrebet? Personally, I think Bruce's days are numbered(two years) and Holt will be the main star to re-sign. Then we need a #2. Who do you think should be the next receiver on the Rams horizon? Come on, not Glenn or Galloway. Be real.

Be real? Ok FANS, lets get real. We have been soooo spoiled with our makeup the last 3 years, and now that AZ has fumbled his way out of the lineup, we have to pickup someone with, lets see:
1. Lots of Speed
2. Experience running the most complicated pass routes in the NFL
3. Holds onto the ball
You won't get a rookie to perform those tasks immediately, and the way we talk in this forum, we don't want to develop, we want to win now. So, you may have to take a chance on a Glenn or Galloway. Glenn may be a stretch, but lets look at Galloway:
When he was with Seattle, he was a cap problem to begin with. They were looking to dump him anyway.
With Dallas, Ismael was constantly hurt, and Galloway was singled out as the ONLY WR on the team, with a practice squad QB throwing the football to him for 3 years.
Realistically, I don't think we are going to find anyone to suit Rams Fan tastes. Sorry.
Potential rookies at wideout
Marquise Walker of Michigan is supposedly the top WR coming out in the draft. Was the go to guy for the Wolverines this year. Return man on special teams and great run blocker. Not much but deceptive speed and holds onto the ball.
Andre Davis of Virginia Tech could be available for us at the bottom of the draft and coud be a great pickup. 6-1, 195 runs a 4.25 40, has a vertical leap of 40 inches and averages 22 yards a punt return. Not the best route runner, and sometimes has difficulty holding onto the ball. Not a fumbler on punt returns though, so maybe coaching could help him bring the ball in close. Experts say he would be a great 3rd WR in fast packages. Sound familiar?
