    Ellis over Dorsey

    If the phins take Chris Long would you take Ellis or Dorsey. Dorsey was the front runner earlier and the big name, but now im leaning towards Ellis. Ellis is more suited to play NT in 4-3 or possibly 3-4 and he has been a straight up beast these past few weeks. He also has many less injury concerns than Dorsey has. I know its not the biggest need, but he might be the BDPA if Long is gone. Carriker and Ellis i the middle could end up being a great combo like the Williams in Minnesota.

    What do you think?

    Re: Ellis over Dorsey

    From January 23rd:

    STLtoday.com: Sports - Forums - Rams Talk - Topic - PossumMock 1.0

    I wouldn't take anybody at #2 overall because they could play NT. That's not a premium position.

    I do think Ellis will be a very good UT, perhaps even a dominant one.

    I noticed that you have the Pat-cheats selecting Jack Ikwegwuonu with the 7th pick. FYI, I've read that Mr. Ikwegwuonu tore an ACL just after he declared for the draft. Therefore, I highly doubt the Pat-cheats take an injured prospect at #7.

    Isn't the number two pick a little high for Ellis?

    Whoa....I hadn't heard that. Thanks.

    At least that information came out after my mock, so I don't feel like a fool.

    If it's not too high for Dorsey, then it wouldn't be for Ellis either, IMO.

    Hell, Dorsey & Ellis could be the two best players in this draft.

    Re: Ellis over Dorsey

    I heard Nebraska has another monster at DE , that is on the Rams radar. Don't know his name but caught the last of the report. Supossed to be real good. Any names that you might have heard out of corn husker country?

    Re: Ellis over Dorsey

    either or i really wouldnt complain about I just want to have a good draft overall. rounds 1-7. Its really hard(but possible) to screw up the #2 pick overall, but the last 3-4 years our overall drafts have sucked and i just really hope our scouts are working hard this year.

    If I were the Rams, I would not be inclined to draft anyone who played on this year's Cornhusker "white shirts":x

    I haven't heard of anybody like that. There's Zack Bowman at CB and Steve Octavian, Corey McKeon and Bo Ruud at LB, but they're day 2 guys at best.

    Bo Ruud, brother of Tampa's MLB Barrett Ruud?

    I haven't heard of a DE prospect, either...I think Bowman may scrape into round three, if he's lucky.

    Re: Ellis over Dorsey

    alot of people mix up Wisconsin with Nebraska ( i don't know how) maybe its the similar colors so you might be talking about Matt Shaunasey who isn't even coming out this year.

    Very vague statement...

    Who has sucked and are your expectations realistic.

    Last 4 years 1st round pick.

    Carricker
    Hill
    Barron
    Jackson

    All starters and at least 2 of them have pro bowl potential????
