    Smith is right choice if Rams take lineman

    Smith is right choice if Rams take lineman
    By Bernie Miklasz
    ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH
    Saturday, Apr. 25 2009

    The other day I was finishing up on my radio show at WXOS (101.1 FM), only to
    be informed that Jason Smith was on the line.

    The Baylor offensive tackle had unexpectedly called in to do a little pre-draft
    campaigning.

    "Please understand that I want to be in St. Louis," Smith said. "I'm ready to
    be a Ram. Let's go! I'm Ram Tough."

    I think the big fella is about to get his wish.

    I'd like to see the Rams do the bold thing and select USC quarterback Mark
    Sanchez with the No. 2 overall pick in today's NFL draft. Sanchez fits the West
    Coast offense the team will be operating under coordinator Pat Shurmur. He's a
    leader who would give a bland franchise some charisma.

    And you just don't know when the Rams will be in this position again, empowered
    with a top pick that they can utilize to grab an elite quarterback to take them
    into the future. Sanchez wouldn't have to play in 2009. He can sit and learn
    and the Rams would have time to find better offensive tackles.

    But I expect the Rams to take the pragmatic approach and select one of the top
    offensive tackles at No. 2 overall. Given the choice between Smith and
    Virginia's Eugene Monroe, I hope the Rams go with Smith.

    Smith has more potential. He's a remarkably gifted athlete for a big man. And
    those who know Smith say he's tenacious and driven to succeed. He wants to be
    great; he wants to dominate. If you study the video of Smith from his 2008
    season at Baylor, there are repeat scenes of Smith sprinting down the field to
    punish a defensive back in an effort to get his runner some extra yards.

    The Rams need that hunger on the field. They need that vitality in their locker
    room and in their huddle. They need to cultivate new leaders who will raise the
    competitive standards.

    "I'm 6-5 and 310 pounds of twisted steel," Smith said. "I'm a football player.
    I take that very seriously. And I understand every single day that I have work
    to do. And I'm going to do everything in my power to get better, every day."

    If the Rams are committed to selecting an offensive lineman barring a
    last-minute trade or surprise then please give us Smith. Monroe may be more
    polished, but the Rams need to bank on Smith's high-ceiling potential and
    personality.

    Kurt and Brenda Warner will be in town Monday for a couple of worthy causes
    supported by their First Things First Foundation. Kurt will conduct a football
    clinic for kids from the Special Olympics at Vianney High School at 10:30 a.m.
    And on Monday afternoon, Kurt and Brenda will link with Habitat for Humanity,
    Aaron's Rents and U-Haul to present a new, fully furnished home to a
    hard-working St. Louis area woman who is a single mom with three children.

    Former Rams head coach Scott Linehan has listed his five-bedroom, six-bathroom
    home in Town and Country. Sale price: $2.3 million. ... Congrats to Rams
    linebacker Chris Draft, who visited the White House last week after receiving a
    national award for his community service.

    On Monday, Rams ownership partner Lucia Rodriguez, Anheuser-Busch president
    David Peacock, Pro Football Hall of Famer Dan Dierdorf and St. Louis Alderman
    Samuel L. Moore will lead a groundbreaking ceremony for a new multi-purpose
    athletic facility at Sumner High School. There will be a new turf, lights,
    bleachers, restrooms and pavilion.

    Linehan needed six bathrooms, because as we all know, he has a TIGHT END.
