    Re: Why didn't the Rams see James Butler's potential back in 2005?

    I think Butler would be solid pick up, if only because of his vet experience with a good unit that used to be our new HC's.

    But that begs the question-no offense to AV & his good eye-whether Butler would be as worthy now if The Rams had drafted him,hotbed of defensive talent that we've been.

    That Atogwe & Bartell are any damned good at all is what amazes me.

    The whole Nature vs Nurture thing, if you want to get deep.

    And when you're looking at past drafts with hindsight , SOMEthing's getting pretty deep.

    Consider,in the spirit of the moment, 3 of the players drafted between Jerome Carter and Claude Terrell that year whose names jump out:

    Jason Brown....didn't I read something about him getting a fat contract recently?

    Darren Sproles....hmmmm how's that for a 1-2 punch with SJ?

    Chris Canty.....another name in the new$ Naw, we didn't need a DE,right?

    haunting stuff, this hindsight.....

    Let's not forget, if we signed Butler in 2005 his DC would have been Larry Marmie. Enough said!

    Go Rams!

    In fact, here on draft chat, I was screaming to draft him in third, but we draft Atogwe. And, as usual, even when I am right, I am wrong!!! Butler showed that he deserved to be drafted, maybe even in third, but thanks God it that didnćt happen way I wished and we drafted OJ. Suddenly, things might come together and we could have both of them.
