    B Dub's Mock off-season

    Now that the Rams season is officially over (except Steven Jackson's Pro bowl) It's time for a Mock:



    Rams to Be Re-signed:

    DT Cliff Ryan- Had a good year and is a RFA
    TE Dan Fells- Pretty good TE showed upside
    DE James Hall- Veteran that is still a productive back up
    FS OJ Atogwe- FRANCHISED- Defensive playmaker that is needed
    DE Leonard Little- I just do not understand why we let him go when he is our best pass rusher. Yea Chris Long may do better on the left side but then who will play on the right side? I think we should keep Little and see what happens during the season just in case someone loses there starting DE and wants to trade. But letting go of Little is a huge mistake and will make our line worse.
    Marc Bulger-No he is not a free agent but we will re-structure his deal

    Free Agents:

    OLB Chris Gocong- With spoon now in Phili; Gocong is probably out. He has connections with Spags and the eagles so this is a good possibility.

    CB Roderick Hood- Veteran presence should come cheap. An improvement over John Wade. Also Hood can start.

    OT Ryan CookHe has started at RT before for the Vikings. If Jason Smith moves to LT than we need a RT so let's see if cook can be that guy.

    RB Jerious Norwood Fast back. Change of pace to Steven Jackson

    Read description before commenting
    QB Mike Vick I fear this is going to turn into a Mike Vick thread which im hope it doesnt. Let me start by saying he is not the STARTER. Marc Bulger is the starter. The move is not for Bulger and Vick to be on the field at the same time (so no wildcat). If you noticed something about the offense its very straight forward nothing really to keep the opposing D-coordinator working overtime for. Our biggest trick play is probably a Jackson draw. We need something to make the the opposing Defenses guessing. Bringing in Vick in the redzone like the eagles do is a good thing. But also on some 1st or 2nd down's make him run an option with Jackson or let him throw it deep cuz Bulger can't do that anymore.


    2010 Draft (5 rounds)[/COLOR]

    Round 1 (1)- DT Ndamukong Suh Nebraska
    Obvious pick

    Round 2 (33)- TE Jermaine Gresham, Oklahoma
    Alternate Pick- QB Colt McCoy, Texas

    With Gresham's injury he may drop to the top of the 2nd round and he would be a great pick-up. But in all likely hood he will go in the 1st and if he does we should get Colt McCoy.

    Round 3 (65) RG Mike Johnson, Alabama
    Run blocking guard. big 6-5 305 pounds. Struggles vs. the pass thou but explodes off the ball

    Round 4 (97) DE Austen Lane, Murray State
    A DE with good athleticism and good size 6-6 260. Powerful. However he needs to improve his technique and needs some coaching. Spags can teach him about getting penetration.

    Round 5 (129) WLB AJ Edds, Iowa
    average WLB. He can tackle and has some speed. IF he doesnt become a starter he can play some good special teams.

    Round 5 (late 5th from eagles) CB Brian Jackson Oklahoma
    Decent CB. Played D in the Big 12. is iight in coverage good size 6-1 200 pounds.


    With this draft we have 3 immediate starters in Suh, Johnson and Gresham and 1 soon to be starter in lane

    If Gresham is off the board its Colt McCoy.

    But if Gresham stays we have the targets and options for a QB in place. So it's either trade a 2011 draft pick for Kolb or see what the season shows us in Bulger.

    Remember Spags needs to show improvements in the win column for next year or he will get the axe. Bulger will be 33 next year and in QB years he still has time. He kept us in games something Boller and NUll didnt do. And remember he did not turn it over too much.

    What do you think?
    Let me start by saying there is no way the 2nd one will happen because the bucs need to build a franchise so there are not going to give up there top 3 rounds for SUh when G. McCoy or Eric Berry is theres

    The reason i dont have us re-signing Barron is because we need smart players that know how to play football. I think Barron might be successful elsewhere with plenty of coaching and talent around him

    With all the issues we have we cannot go D-line with our 1st 2 picks. Carimi might go in the 2nd but he would be a great pick up for us and our style of Offense. Never seen thomas austin play nor do i know much about him so i cant argue that. Luther Brown had so much talent around him and he is a 1 year wonder so id say no. Jimmy Graham is fine. and the 7th round is hard to determine right now.

    Re: B Dub's Mock off-season

    I love everything except the TE choice. Yes, he would make a good player, but I think we can go through free agency for that. It really is time to pick a QB of the future. I did read your other post, but I think QB comes way before TE. Especially since we are in full rebuild mode. If there is a QB that intrigues us at 33, whether it be McCoy or Pike, we need to snag them and let them learn under Bulger.

    Vick does sound good. Whether we get him, I'm not sure. But I do enjoy the redzone confusion for defenses.

    Devaney, if you care about this team... fire the offensive coordinator!!!!

    I think that if Gresham is available in the second round, his value out weighs any QB who would be available except for maybe Bradford or Clausen.
