    Worst Rams draft pick ever......

    Who do you think was the worst pick we've ever made?


    I'd go with Lawrence Phillips. Not only was he trouble from the very start. Not only was he a complete bust........we shipped off a future HOFer to make room for him. Doesn't get any worse than that.

    I don't envision this discussion lasting very long. All things considered, it's tough to make a case for someone other than Phillips IMO.

    It was are worst pick but it lead to the Rams getting M. Faulk.....

    WHy do we always have to focus on the negative. Why not consider asking who do you think was the best pick for the Rams?

    Absolutely fantastic!! Therefore, by comparison, Demoine Lewis and Jimmy Kennedy didn't look so bad next to LP. There is something positive.

    The guy ruined himself, this team for a spell, a weak coach. Hands down, LP is the brown hole that the team spiraled into for years.

    Marshall however was a product of Edgrin James and also Indy being stupid. And I thank the lord they were. He made all those other things seem trivial for a while.

    Leonard Little. To date, I believe he is the only Ram to have killed someone.

    I fell off my chair.


    I'd have to go with Crouch though, as someone else already suggested.

    Re: Worst Rams draft pick ever......

    I'd say either.....

    Terry Baker, QB, Oregon St. - 1st overall pick of the 1963 draft; played in 18 career games with 2 TDs and 4 Ints.; moved to RB after rookie year, started one game in career. The AFL's Chargers took him with the 90th overall pick, but we spent numero uno on him. Passed on Daryl Lamonica, 2-time All-Pro QB and 5-time pro bowler. Also passed on Defensive HOFers.....Bobby Bell and Buck Buchanon.

    or....

    Jack Wilson, RB, Baylor - 2nd overall pick in the 1942 draft; started 3 games his rookie year with 150 total yards and 1 TD; played one game in his second year (-2 yards from scrimmage) and hung 'em up. Passed on Spec Sanders, 2-time rushing leader and 2-time All-Pro.


    How 'bout the flipside?

    Larry Brooks - 355th overall; 5 time pro-bowler, started 122 games for the Rams
    Deacon Jones - 186th overall; NFL-N's top pass rusher of all-time

    Just listening to a game featuring the much-maligned Phillips on KLOU-FM now. We lost 15-12 to the Niners in 1997. A couple of good runs by L.P.....
