    I would hope that we do not pick a TE in the second round. There are many better options we could choose, and picking another TE is not one of them. Especially in the second round. Crabtree would be a good pick, but if Bulger doesn't have time to throw, Crabtree would be useless. I would prefer us to pick Oher or Smith, but trading down to pick a MLB, (Maualauga, Lauranaitis) would also be considerable. As for the second round, we need to go with another lineman, or if there is a strong safety that matches our need.

    I doubt we will pick Pascoe. McMichael is coming back next season, we have Daniel Fells who has shown he can catch. We actually have a number of weapons, but it seems like we just do not know how to utilize them to their full potential. Hence get rid of Saunders.

    We draft TE in the 2nd round I will throw a fit that people in Jersey will hear! Am I the only one here that's sick of these dolphin rejects? F' McMichael. If Pascoe is there in the 4th, ideally the 5th round that's when to go TE. Use some two tight end sets for a change n add a little depth at the same time. Now who do you want to replace Saunders?

    FROM ROTOWORLD....


    The Rams would take nearly a $10 million salary cap hit to release Marc Bulger this offseason.

    According to beat writer Steve Korte, Bulger's contract "guarantees that he'll be back next season as the team's starter." The Rams might use a draft pick on a QB in April, but they're not expected to do so in the early rounds due to their many needs elsewhere. Outside of Detroit and maybe Kansas City, there isn't a roster in the league with less talent signed through 2009.

    Care to elaborate? What rookie qb is going to come in here behind our current o-line and have success? Then how will the Rams pay for him? I think Bulger still has enough in the tank that if we can actually give him an o-line and wr's that learn their routes he will be fine. I'm all for drafting a qb in the later rounds and grooming him for a couple of years but I don't see a franchise qb out there. Please don't say Tim Tebow either that guy is not going to be a good NFL qb.

    I have a few that i'm evaluating that I seem to think might be a good draft pick in mid to late rounds.

    CULLEN HARPER - CLEMSON, 6-4, 220 4.85
    CURTIS PAINTER- PURDUE, 6-4, 230 4.90
    T. BRANDSTATER- FRESNO, 6-5, 220 4.80
    CHASE HOLBROOK- N.MEX.ST., 6-5,246 5.15
    NATE LONGSHORE-CAL., 6-5 , 233 5.15
    TODD BOECKMAN -OHIO ST. 6-4 , 244 4.85
    and i'm still looking at GRAHAM HARRELL- TEXAS TECH. , 6-3 , 205

    these are the QB's i feel we might look at in mid to late rounds as our 3rd stringer .

    If we can't do that and have to pick at number two, I'd prefer Oher to Smith although I have doubts about both. Smith looks ponderous and has weight issues, while Oher reportedly loses concentration at times. I would say that Oher has the more upside of the pair.
    I agree trade down to the middle of the first round. Oher should be in the middle to late first round. that would be my choice. Football teams are made with 3rd-5th round picks so we may be able to pick up some great depth in those rounds.

    Re: With the 2nd pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams pick.....

    If we could snag Painter late in the draft, I'd like that. As far as top picks go, I'm a bit unsure. We should give an effort to trading that 2nd pick and snagging a big play linebacker. Laurinaitis looks incredible. I'm sure The Whiners would take Crabtree (much needed offensive weapon) at #2 or maybe Houston to line up across from Andre Johnson.
    Extra 2nd rounder, awesome! We could take a monster like Loadholt to replace Pace with that 34th pick and maybe get lucky and find a Safety. I've seen a few names, but not sure who might be available at that time.

    Trading down would be a smart option. We need as many picks as possible to rebuild this team.

    If we trade down we can get Maualauga, Mays or Jason Smith, while gaining maybe a 2nd rounder and a 4-5th rounder.

    But if we don't trade down, and pick Oher or Smith instead, I wouldn't complain.

    Re: With the 2nd pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the St. Louis Rams pick.....

    I don't know enough about college ball to guess at individual picks nor do I think we have enough info about the Rams' plan regarding the current roster, FA,etc, to even decide what positions they may target in the draft.

    However, I have a couple of draft dream trades.

    Detroit and Philly are the only two teams with two 1st round picks. If Philly needs something like Crabtree to play opposite DeSean, they might be tempted to swap our #2 for their two picks in the bottom half of the first round.Win or lose from this point, The Eagles are more likely to want that one key player to complete their team than spend first round money on a TE. Maybe they will want/need to replace McNabb but there is no great QB option in this draft & certainly none at their lower half spots.But it seems like there will be good options for us in most areas of need at that point & will come at a lower price.

    Detroit needs everything but, again, I'm not convinced that any QB available will justify #1 money. Orlovsky isn't the longterm answer but he didn't play as badly as that infamous endzone gaffe would indicate. Detroit may be tempted to get one of the premier OTs AND Crabtree by trading their #20 and top o' the 2nd pick to us for our #2 and wait for next year to get their franchise signal caller. Makes them more likely to throw in Shaun McDonald as part of the trade when you think of the potent duo of Calvin Johnson and Crabtree and a longterm anchor at OT.

    Either dream deal gives us three picks out of the first 35 & lessens the risk of over-paying for any one player.Getting a quality WR in trade is just icing on the cake.

    I know it's not likely to happen but it's less stressful to think about than putting all our eggs in one basket.

    I'd love to see Detroit take ANOTHER WR.

    With all the help we need, I say we trade down to top 10 and get bunch of 2nd/3rd round picks.

    I think Andre Smith will make a great " G " not "OT". Before you can say what Rams need you need to know who the coach is going to be and what he is going to run.
    POWER RUNNING GAME ? Need bigger O-line
    4-3 OR 3-4 ? 3-4 Need more and bigger LB's ,with huge NT
    For now I say trade down.

    I honestly don't think Pace will be back in 2009. Andre Smith is a young OP anyway. Andre Smith is the pick and if he is, Pace won't be back.
