    the toughest part is if you think you have five possible guys at the top, you really have zero

    Re: Av's Draft Radar (Five/Ten/Ten) - Select From This List

    1) curry
    2) meredith (if he makes it this far he can play any position on the line and hes a really good RT which is what we have more need for)
    3) barden or another wr (we should wait next year to draft d-line in the first day of the draft)

    Curry,Nicks, Cadogan
    Curry, perfect #1 for the Rams, a real leader in the middle.
    Nicks, would be a great addition to our recieving corp, ready to start.
    Cadogen, would be value in the 3rd, decent player and coachable.

    Maybe, we are overestimating the need for our O-line. But HUb, are you saying they're gonna get magically better overnight?

    Yes, actually, I am. What makes for a good pass protection OL? Well, HUb, that would be the ability to block until the QB gets rid of the ball. Yes, exactly right. So either, the line needs to block longer, OR........the routes have to be shorter.

    We're going from an Air Coryell vertical system to a WCO. The WCO does not require the length of block that our system has needed in the past 10 years. Just this philosophical switch will improve the pass protection.

    So with that in mind, why not rebuild this defense starting with the two of the top 3 LBs in this draft? And follow that up with what should be a hot prospect for the WCO?

    I'm not married to it, or anything, but it's debateworthy though.
    RamsSB99 who do you want in the first round? I want Curry. So do I. RamsSB99 who do you want in the second round? I want Loadholt. So do I. RamsSB99 who do you want in the third round? I want Barden. So do I, man we have a lot in common.


    Some of my best conversations are with myself. Me too.

    Re: Av's Draft Radar (Five/Ten/Ten) - Select From This List

    R1 - Jason Smith, OT, Baylor
    R2 - Sean Smith, DB, Utah
    R3 - Herman Johnson, OG/OT, LSU

    Only difference to my own mock is taking Johnson as now it seems that the prevailing opinion is that Robiskie won't fall that far.

    I like the sound of Johnson who is the size to fit the Devaney idea of 'bigger bodies'. Our O-Line is notorious for injuries and bonehead penalties, so some healthy competition would hopefully sharpen them up!

    I'd be thrilled with a combination of Monroe, Nicks and McKillop.

    Re: Av's Draft Radar (Five/Ten/Ten) - Select From This List

    A well-sifted list of the best suspects,AV.
    I think this will be a very serviceable reference until close to the draft. Thanks.
    My choices, with a few quibbles:

    1. Monroe

    Swapping Maclin for Crabtree would have made this one a wee bit more agonizing.

    I ask you to consider that we still need speed. We play at least 9 games a year on artificial turf; @ The ED & The Hags Nest. SJ & a power running O-line will help keep KW & The Cards off the field on grass in AZ but our current skill guys' stats explode on turf; SJ, Avery.

    I think Maclin will be like that as well, esp with his KR cred.
    More so than Crabtree. Bulger doesn't throw the drop-from-the-rafters ball well enough to take advantage of Crabtree as a deep threat like Fitz. I think our TEs & RBs can rip up the middle of defenses & get the hard YAC stuff.

    2. Sean Smith

    All of me wants a D guy here.

    My head says we are even thinner at DB than LB & there are more solid LBs lower than there are DBs with Smith's size & talent.Maybe Spags turns Hill & Wade into diamonds but..

    My heart says Brace or Hood. maybe BD is right about the interior line's relative potential under Spags & with some cheaper beef but..

    3. Terrance Knighton

    Where's the beef? There's the beef!

    If we re-sign Setterstrom and/or Goldberg, I think this list is a little O-line rich. I'd like to have another LB or DE choice here instead of Cadogan or Kropog. Maybe my guy from Cal, LB Zack Follett. High-character intense guy who could easily be more productive than Pisa,imo.

    Or DT Alex Magee,Purdue, who has the size & quickness to play RDE or rotate with Carriker. Nice bookend to Long if Chris moves to LDE as BD has hinted he might.

    Re: Av's Draft Radar (Five/Ten/Ten) - Select From This List

    1. Curry

    2. Hood (alts: Beatty, Loadholt)

    3. Barden (alts: Kropog, Martin)

    If we go D in the 1st, I'll be hoping for a run on WR's/LB's late in the round. (to keep the focus off LT's)
    If we go LT in the 1st, I'll be hoping for a run on OT's. (for the opposite: WR/LB/DT)
