Defensive tackles who might be under consideration by the Rams, via the draft or trade:

Alan Branch
6-6, 324
Michigan
Looks the part, but many feel he's an underachiever prone to disappearing on game day.

Adam Carriker
6-6, 296
Nebraska
An end in college who could be an effective inside player by adding 10-15 pounds of bulk.

Justin Harrell
6-4, 300
Tennessee
Has strength and quickness but missed all but 3 games of '06 season with torn biceps muscle.

Amobi Okoye
6-2, 302
Louisville
He'll still be a teenager on draft day; may be better suited to "3 technique" than nose tackle.

Kris Jenkins
6-4, 340
Carolina (NFL)
Will he come out of home or visitors locker room when Panthers play at St. Louis in season opener?
