    Alex Barron

    Would it be possible for the Rams to give Barron a shot at Left Tackle for the 2009 season, since that was his natural position. He is athletic enough to play there, and if we try him at left tackle we could draft Loadhoalt in the 2nd round to play right tackle.

    Our offensive line would be:
    LT- Barron
    LG- Bell
    C- Romberg/Incognito
    RG- Grecco
    RT- Loadhoalt

    If Barron doesn't work out, which is obviously a good possibility, then at least we gave it a shot. We could just draft a LT in the 2010 draft and use our 1st round pick this draft on Curry, Raji, or Stafford/Sanchez.

    I know there is almost no chance of this happening, but could somebody tell me why?

    Barron did play LT for a good chunk of the '07 season.

    And his problems have been mental more than anything. Moving him to LT wouldn't help that.

    No thankyou!!! First of Barron is not better than pace or any rookie we draft early. That line could be possibly worse than the one we have now

    Ignoring the spelling, how do you know Barron wouldn't be better than anyone we drafted early? Barron was drafted in the first round and was considered a virtual sure thing so how do you know his high draft pick replacement wouldn't be the same underachieving player?

    I really like Phil Loadholt, but I don't like Barron as our LT.

    Re: Alex Barron

    The funny thing is that while Barron started those 15 games at LT during the '07 season, he experienced his best season in terms of sacks allowed (only 3.50) compared to this past season where he gave up 7.50 and the year prior to '07 where he allowed 8.75. Is it because he is playing out of position? Possibly. This doesn't disregard his lingering mental lapses and knack for being lazy on the job, but the Rams have often played many players out of position when maybe they shouldn't have (Witherspoon at MLB, Carriker at DT). But Barron is what he is by now, he's had more than enough time.
