This is a very temporary situation here. Lovie Smith had some beef in Tampa Bay at DT in McFarland and Sapp and the result was a less vunerable DL. This offseason, via the draft or free agency, Smith (or his successor if he gets an HC gig) will find a 300+ lber that begs for a tandem block on rushing attempts between the OTs.
That happens and the rest of the League is in big-time trouble.
It's not a bad year for DT's, not as good as last year, but not bad. Look for John Henderson (Tenn) , Wendell Bryant ( WIS ) and Alan Harper ( Fres St. ) or even Ryan Sims ( UNC - his stock will soar after his combine #'s ) to be gone in the first round and probably before the Rams pick. Larry Tripplett ( the run stopper from Washington ) may be available. His stock has dropped a bit due to less production, but he is facing doubles 90+% of the time.He may go before all but Henderson or after all these guys but is the run stopper of this group.
Now to play devil's advocate, they( Rams ) drafted the two LB's from Florida State ( GO NOLES ) last year(TWO !!!), and this year MLB Bradley Jennings departs Tallahassee ( and takes over 100 taclkes a year with him !!! ) ? See a trend ?? I bet if he's available they will re-unite him with Tommy Polley ( who I love ). Completing the trio of LB's who can FLY and have played TONS OF Football together, including the last three title games !!!
Just guessing here guys, but I live for the draft - if you can't tell. I love to evaluate talent.
