    Who's your favorite Rams rookie so far?

    The Rams are starting to see solid contributions from a handful of the rookies they selected in the 2013 draft.

    The three draft picks making the most noise are obviously Austin, Ogletree, and Stacy. What I love about these three picks contributing is that the Rams brass worked the draft exactly how they wanted to to get these three.

    They traded up big time for Austin. Bold move trading up so far in the 1st round to draft such an unconventional player, but the Rams could care less what anyone else thinks. They saw the talent and we're willing to take the risk. I love it. The Rams are still finding ways to get him integrated into the system, but he has shown his uber elite talent with the ball in his hands. He's a game-changer. Sorry Colts.

    The Rams we're risky enough to trade back in the first round and hope Ogletree fell in their lap. Their interviews revealed he was their guy and they we're extremely nervous about missing out on him because of the trade. But they checked out the other teams in front of them and felt confident he wasn't what they were looking for. IMO, he's shown in the NFL what he showed in College. Sometimes has trouble getting off blocks, but the closing speed and play-making ability is there. He's already a good player with loads of untapped potential.

    Last, but certainly not least, Stacy. The Rams were confident in giving up their last two picks in the draft to move up to the 5th and acquire Stacy. GREAT value even after trading two late picks. He's proven that it was a great move. Without him, I don't know where our running game would be. Stacy's a stud. Plain and simple.

    I went with Stacy.

    Giving him his chance resulted in a major boost to the Rams running game. Defenses can no longer key on the pass with him in the backfield. He demands respect.

    Not to mention, he's a true pro. Captain in college, great student, and has an outstanding work ethic. Add that to his impressive vision, balance, and strength and we might have ourselves a star in the making.

    I went with Alec Oh! I wanted him in this draft and was not sure we had a shot at TA, also I did not even know who Stacy was, man what a great job by our management and scouting staff to be aware of him!
    This is a really awesome group of rookies we are very fortunate to have these lads! All three deserve to be honored for what they are bringing to our team! Go get them Bears Boys!

    Voted ZS given the impact he's made in the Rams rushing game. Tavon Austin might catch up fast!

    Stacy is a no-brainer but I can't say that I'm not equally excited for the possibilities for both Tavon and Alec. Austin, when utilized well, can be a MONSTER. Likewise with Alec, he's a playmaker. It's nice that we have guys on this team that we can call playmakers. Gentlemen, we finally have some difference makers on this young, young team.


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

    based on the premise that Im a Defense-oriented person 1st and foremeost I have to go with Ogletree.

    However, I casnt wait for the next incarnation of Madden to run Zack all over the place =P

    After that beat down of the Colts in Indianapolis it has to be Tavon Austin for me. I'm expecting more big plays from this young man. I'm not taking anything away from Stacy or Ogletree it's just that Austin has that Greatest Show on Turf playmaking ability!!!

    The question wasn't most important, or MVP, but favorite. I picked Austin because of the electricity he brings to the game. I remember too many Rams teams that had to settle for field goals. When Austin gets the ball, six points is pretty much the only option.

    Agreed, Stacy has had the most impact, but my FAVORITE rookie, as in, if I were to buy a jersey....would be Tavon.
