    Could Lance Kendricks be the best Rams TE of all time?

    I know what you're thinking.

    You're thinking "Av's lost his mind." You're itching to post "Why not let him play a game before you start calling him an all time great!"

    Of course, that is NOT where I'm going with this.

    My point is, it is amazing how undistinguished the Rams all-time TE list is. When you think of RBs, you have HOFs like Faulk and Dickerson, not to mention Pro Bowl players like Steven Jackson. At WR, you have a list that includes Elroy Hirsh, Henry Ellard, Isaac Bruce and Torry Holt. We have QBs like Van Brocklin, Gabriel and Warner. We have one of the best All-Time OLs in football (Slater, Harrah, Saul, Mack, Pace).

    Then there's TE.

    Who are the All-Time Great Rams TEs?

    Pete Holihan?

    Ernie Conwell?

    Troy Drayton?

    Not exactly a great list.

    So, while I have no idea what kind of player Lance Kendricks (or Michael Hoomanawanui, for that matter) will ultimately be, perhaps it the Rams greatest TE is someone we have not seen play (or have not seen play much) yet.

    I smell Vernon Davis potential in this kid.

    I certainly hope Lance goes down as the best in Ram history...

    I dont think its against the odds for him to be the best Rams TE of all time. He is extremely talented and now he gets to team up with our soon to be best QB. I look forward to big things with Mr. Kendricks.

    I am also struck by the mediocrity of the names Bejema and Fells.

    Shouldn't be that difficult to surpass these guys. UH-OH may be another story though.

    Gotta add, I loved Holihan.
    Semper Fi!

    He does have the potential to be a great TE in Rams history.

    I'm glad you mentioned Hoomanawanui, who had me thinking last year exactly what you're getting at here. If he stays healthy, he has star potential written all over him and has a great chance to be the greatest Rams TE ever.

    Billy Truax and David Hill. Hill is the best blocking tight end the rams ever had. He really was a floating tackle during his heyday. Whenever i get bored in meetings and work on my all time rams last, tight end is the toughest one.

    ramming speed to all

    Looks like someone responded without actually reading the thread.

    Any list of great Rams Tight Ends must include Billy Truax and Bob Klein. Billy played for George Allen and was a pretty decent target for Roman Gabriel. Klein was the quintessential blocking TE and opened major holes for Rams Rbs for years.

    Heh..."Great Rams Tight Ends"..sounds like an oxymoron if ever there was one.

    I am holding out more hope that Hoomananawui continues to develop as I see him as being a much better candidate for the title than a hybrid dude like Kendricks.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Either way... Sam loves the TE and as long as he has one (or two!!!) that is reliable, he'll keep feeding them them ball. I really hope that we get a Gronk/Hernandez thing going next year and one of them goes on to be the next Gates/Clark/Gonzalez(for us).
    I believe!

    Re: Could Lance Kendricks be the best Rams TE of all time?

    I have huge hopes for this player. In my opinion he has a great chance of being our best TE ever since Ive been a fan.?
    We'll soon see how good our new FO is at grading these draft picks. Im 60-40 in favour of Kendricks being an above average type of player, mainly through Sam being the QB. He was a second rounder so I expect a good player. I hope Im right.?

    Here's a little Rams trivia for you...

    Mike Barber (1980): 657 yards
