    What sort of a 40 time do those bad boys run?

    Worth a look in the later rounds?

    I disagree you can go wrong with the second pick. Charles Rodgers Ryan Leaf. For all we know if Chris Long is Peyton Manning at number one to the Dolphins Vernon Gholston could be our Ryan Leaf.

    The RAMS have a need ! A need for SPEED on the DE!! We have rush ends already!!!
    take Vernen Gholston if Chris long isn't there!
    If we can get a good pass rush It makes the whole defense better!!
    Thats what the giants did !!!
    The rush made all world Brady look pretty human!!
    The rush made tony Romoe look pretty human also!!
    If Little go's down we have No speed rush!!

    I need speed and speed kills QBs! Draft speed rushers @2 & 33 !!!
    Vernon Gholston @ 2
    Chris Johnson @ 33

    Re: Annual: "Why do I have a feeling that"

    Here's my main plug for Dorsey....is Carriker playing out of position as was mentioned in a story on Ram Talk? If so, why not get a real UT and move Carriker to DE where he should be?

    So, wait, are you saying that Chris Johnson is a defensive end now, too?

    In general, I agree with the overall premise, but I still have lagging fears about his commitment to football. It very well could be a completely wrong feeling, but, well, I have a feeling in my gut that tells me that Gholston could be another Rams first round defensive lineman that has all the skills, but once he gets the first round paycheck, he'll check out.

    It stems from his history of getting shut out by lesser teams, and accumulating most of his stats in the big ones. What games are big and what ones are small to him? Will he only play hard when he knows the national TV audience is on him? Or will he become the best defender in the whole class? He could have all the highlights in the world, but if he doesn't bring it harder with every down and he doesn't love the game, I don't want him. I'm very hopeful that this feeling is wrong if we do pick him up.

    Athleticism does nothing if he doesn't go out and use it on every play. Other people in the top five have proven that they do. Gholston hasn't. And that's what scares me about him.

    In a 4-3 system, Carriker most closely aligns with a UT, exactly like Dorsey. Considering that we already had two UT's when he came in, we tried moving him to NT, and he did good work there, but we also found a true NT in Ryan. This would allow Carriker to move to a UT role and be able to pass the rusher more. He played in a 3-4 one gap system in college, where he did pretty much the same job against both tackles and guards but from the end position. So if you want to look at it that way, yes, he's out of position, because we don't play a 3-4. If you look at it with respect to what his responsibilities are, he's right where he should be.

    I don't seem to agree but that's what these boards are designed for right? However, what do I know? I'm just a bean counter in Austin, TX. However, I would like to see how Carriker would be at DE. That's all. No one on this board really "knows" if he could play that position. It's all mere speculation.

    Re: Annual: "Why do I have a feeling that"

    #2 overall is a high-pressure pick, so I imagine we are all having some "gut-feelings" about this draft. I am not comfortable taking Dorsey at #2. I am not buying all the injury hype, but I just don't feel it.

    Chorizo? Is he 1-AA? I don't see him on any of my draft boards.

    I am OK with Dorsey.

    If you want to build a dominate D you have to plug the middle with alot of talent. DT's, MLB, and FS/SS.

    Go Rams
