Suh and mccoy on the same team? lol cant wait to see what a full contact scrimmage would be like (big twelve championship game)
As for the person that said he won't get past Minnesota, I see them as more of a deep threat team. Which is why I think Brett was so successful up there.
After watching Mike Mayock's report from Austin, I am being pulled back towards my original plan:
2. BQBA......which would be McCoy
From the reports I've read and heard so far, it appears that Bradford is the superior passer past the intermediate routes. However, from intermediate in these two kids are very similar QBs. Is McCoy going to be more system limited than Bradford in the NFL? Yes, he will. However, does McCoy's system limitations fit quite well with the Rams system? Yes! Yes, they do.
I still would consider Bradford an outstanding selection for the Rams. But I'd be lying if I said I thought Bradford/BPA gave us more value than Suh/C.McCoy.
Personally, I think a Suh/McCoy two-round result is pretty good for this team. I think the chances of McCoy being there in the second round are probably better than an impact DL, as I expect a run on them in the first.
One of the reasons I favor taking Bradford is that I am concerned that waiting until Round 2 to take a QB would be a big risk.
If I knew the Rams could come away with Suh/C.McCoy, I'd be fine with that plan. But what if McCoy is taken late in the first round? Suh/LeFevour? Not certain that's the best way to go.
If, on the other hand, the Rams take Bradford in Round 1, I think there is a pretty good chance that they'll have some very good options in Round 2, including (possibly) some good DL. To me, that's the best option.
There's definitely a chance McCoy isn't there. But there's also the chance that he is. It's a risk to make decisions while considering in the back of your mind who might be available later, but the Rams have a number of different options.
First, Colt could fall to them and they could take him. If he falls into the twenties - as most expect, I'd say - the Rams could possibly strike a deal and move up to secure him. Or, if McCoy is drafted before the Rams can make a move, they could phone Washington (who likely draft Bradford if the Rams don't) or Philadelphia and check on the availability of Jason Campbell or Donovan McNabb, respectively. That could be a phone call that happens overnight, as teams are resetting their boards for round two.
Whether it's Bradford/DL or Suh/McCoy, I don't think either scenario is a dud. But it's entirely possible that the best defensive lineman on the board in round two might be the eighth or ninth ranked guy in the DL rankings. Sure, it's a deep class on the defensive line and there's a lot of talent there. But if that's the case, then perhaps getting the highest ranked DL in Suh and the third ranked QB in McCoy is more appealing, even if you have to move a bit to secure McCoy.
Definitely something to think about in terms of the strategy! Ultimately, I suspect the Rams probably won't entertain such scenarios and will simply draft Bradford first overall, but you never know! If Clausen slips, as some suspect, that's likely going to cause McCoy to slip as well. It'll be interesting to look back in five years and see what could have been, and determine if that is better or worse than what was.
