    Re: With the 13th pick, St. Louis selects Adam Carriker, DL, Nebraska

    I see him as a high motor guy like Grant Wistrom.

    Rams select Adam Carriker DE

    I thought the Rams should have gone with Alan Branch, but Carriker seems like a nice addition, what do you guys think?:l

    I like the pick alot. Very versatile d-lineman.

    Branch is still not picked and the draft is down to the 17th pick. There's something about Branch that alot of teams are afraid of?

    Can you explain why? I know you said in another thread you didn't like him, but I don't think I've seen the reasoning yet.

    Re: With the 13th pick, St. Louis selects Adam Carriker, DL, Nebraska

    Could this be the first step in going to a 3-4 defense?

    Re: With the 13th pick, St. Louis selects Adam Carriker, DL, Nebraska

    I'm not thrilled nor am I upset about the pick, I honestly have to wait and see next season to actually be able to say if I'm happy with the pick or not because I just don't know that much about him.


    Always and Forever a fan of the St. Louis Rams

    We sort of need a legit nose tackle before we can even think about the 3-4.

    Sorry, didn't see this.

    Personally I think Carriker is a very good prospect. Very impressive physically and the interviews I've heard from him have been impressive. I think he has a pretty high floor, and by that I mean he's a fairly safe pick. I like the toughness and ability he brings to this defense.

    That said, my biggest concern is where he plays. If he's playing outside as a defensive end, what does it mean for Adeyanju? Is he now strictly a back-up? Because I doubt he beats out Carriker to play end on running downs. Also, if we're looking at Carriker and Adeyanju as our future starting defensive ends, will these guys be able to explode from the edge and get to the passer? Or will we need to also find a situational edge rusher to combine with them in a rotation? I think if they move Carriker inside to three-technique, it makes more sense, but then what happens to Wroten?

    There are some questions that I'm interested to hear the answer to, but ultimately I think Carriker is a very solid prospect who not only has the on the field talent, but he also has the measurables and the character to be a successful player at the next level. In the end, you can never have enough of those types of players. I'm just anxious to see how we use him now and in the future.

    I'm just ok with the pick, Carriker had a great Junior year but he didn't really impress me this year, I would have preferred us taking Branch or trading down to pick up a CB like Hall, but who knows maybe Branch will have a monumental fall, but I think he is going to be taken in the late 1st. I wouldn't be surprised for Indy to pick him.

    I agree, but rumor has it that we're looking for one of those today.
