    Geez guys, do we have to quantify every thread with a backup thread anymore? Some have HUb, but I'm not going to take the time to look up names.
    The point being, tx, is that I don't know of ANYONE who has declared Avery to be a for certain stud, much less in comparison to those who have declared Avery a for certain reach. I would think that one making such an assertion would have examples of those making the statement.

    You're a respected fan, and to that extent, I give you the benefit of the doubt that your assertion has substance and is not just flung on a wall to see if it sticks.

    Just looking for said substance, that's all.

    Re: Biggest 2008 Rams Draft Lie

    Since i had to pick just one, i went with the Shaw overruling. What is the point in all the scouting and hiring devaney if Shaw was gonna decide the draft in the end? That just seems bizarre and absurd from my pov.

    But the other three were big lies as well. No one but the Rams saw their board.

    No one has the ability to know when Avery would have went.

    I don't know much about Greco, but thats like saying a QB's hands are too small- if he can play, he can play, no matter how long his arms are.

    Easy answer

    After Avery's Pro Day, there was never a chance of him being available in the 3rd.

    I went with dorsey, but in retrospect, it should be the Greco one.

    That is the only one that's a proven lie. There's no confirmation either way for the rest.

    How about "We'll stop drafting TE's in the early rounds?"

    We know very little about Avery. Honestly, who saw Henry Ellard or Isaac Bruce play before they wore blue and gold? I'm hoping for the best. Bulger needs some targets.
