    Personally, i would have rather seen the Rams sign Al Oerter if we were going to go in the direction of a discus thrower. I believe Oerter is the only man to win his event in four consecutive olympic games, and i hear he is still in excellent shape.

    ramming speed to all

    They were discussing some of these guys pre-draft on St. Louis radio. I think it was Farr who commented that being the biggest, being the strongest, being the fastest all in one player means nothing in the NFL along the line. It's about leverage, angles, recognition and technique. He has none of that and it's not something you learn in 18 months. Signing a player like that reduces the reps of real prospects.

    Fans love these signings. Offensive guards love the opportunity to destroy him even more.

    If we want someone "related" to a famous Olympic athlete, we might want to consider Kim Kardashian. If the tabloids at the check-out counter of my local grocery stores are accurate, she is about the size of an NFL DT right now.
