    I Think Curry is 0ur Man!

    We Put Barron at LT Then We Moved Witherspoon Back outside and we Finished Last Year 29th against the run, Besides Aaron Curry is Listed as the BEST PLAYER in this years Draft, Nuff said!

    Re: I Think Curry is 0ur Man!

    i sure hope so. I would like to get curry beacuse he is the most talented and has been refered to as the safest pick. we can still get an OT in round 2 there will be qualtity linmen still aviable.
    although any linebacker will be worthless if we dont get a quality DT!
    Curry and Beatty, is better than monroe/ brinkley or mckillop

    I think you're exaggerating our DT faults a little bit...Carriker and Ryan are young and have shown some promise, we just need more depth. I don't think we have to spend an early pick on a DT this year. And even if we don't get a good DT Curry can still be dominant with Carriker and Ryan in front of him.

    I can use that same logic to say that Eugene Monroe is the guy.

    We moved Barron to LT and havent given him an extention so he may not be a long term fix.

    Bulger and Action Jackson had there shares of injurry and we were in the bottom of the league in offense too.

    we also released Pace so we need another OT

    lol arent you about done selling curry?

    Re: I Think Curry is 0ur Man!

    Even though over half the board here wants Curry in a Rams uniform, he's not going to get drafted by the Rams. It's just not going to happen. The only real question is whether it's going to be Monroe or J. Smith.

    If I'm wrong I'll gladly eat crow, but I don't think it's going to happen.

    Re: I Think Curry is 0ur Man!

    Question: Would Curry be effective if he is on the field for 40+ minutes a game?

    Curry has NEVER played MLB how does that mean he is the "safest" pick? No player is bust proof

    Watching film on these guys, Monroe is really solid but tends to ease up on blocks when the play goes away from his side. Smith looks less disciplined but will drive guys out of the picture. He's got a nice mean streak, but seems to need some work. Curry is a tackling MACHINE. He makes the easy plays and the one's you don't think he's gonna make. Curry at #2 sound good to me.

    Re: I Think Curry is 0ur Man!

    I'm not knocking Curry but in every single one of these posts throughout the board you could substitute Gholston and it would be like last year.

    I'm not saying he won't be great but I'm just too tired to put all of my eggs in one basket.

    Monroe, Curry, Smith, Raji... I trust Spags and Devaney will pick the best player they think the team needs.

    I like how you cut off my quote before I readily admit that I could be wrong. Obviously it's impossible to say with certainty that the Rams will or will not draft anybody, but I those that think Curry is a strong possibility are saying that because that's what they want to happen, not because it's likely to happen.

    Re: I Think Curry is 0ur Man!

    My goodness when did Curry suddenly become Ray Lewis? We don't HAVE to pick Curry. To me, and it's just my novice brain only, I think we could find a MLB later that would be just fine but I don't think we could get a OT that would be just fine later. What do I know though? This draft stuff to me is more confusing than the IRS Tax Code.

    I think you've made a very valid point, tx. I would think it's easier to find a LB in the later rounds who can come in and play effectively than it is to find a blind side tackle in the later rounds who can do the same. I imagine that's one of the reasons teams in the top five are hesitant to spend that pick on a linebacker, but readily spend it on OT help.

    Look at the starting left tackles in the league. The vast majority of them come from the first two rounds. The Rams aren't guaranteed to get a prospect with LT potential in the second round at all. This isn't a position that teams should put off addressing until later when they have the chance to take arguably the best player at that position.

    As long as the grade between a tackle and Curry is close, you have to address the line. The only way you take Curry, IMO, is if he's graded so much better than a tackle that you just can't justify passing on him. Ultimately I don't think that will prove to be the case.

    Re: I Think Curry is 0ur Man!

    Here's the scenario that concerns me...

    The Rams take Curry, and then there is a run on OTs (much as there was last year). As the last LTs remain on the board (Oher, Britton, Beatty), the Rams get in "panic" mode and overpay to trade back up into the first round (perhaps even having to give up a future first round pick).

    I'd love for Curry to be a Ram, but I just can't escape the fact that OT is the position that needs to be filled first.
