    I think I may have found the fly in the ointment?

    We are jinxed by the TE position.

    Scott Linehan wasted a ton of picks trying fill the position!

    DeSpags is close behind.

    I know looking back is easy to do but the facts are the facts.

    RAMS 2010 Draft:
    ------------------

    1. Sam Bradford (excellent pick)

    2. Rodger Saffold (surprise pick?)
    We could have selected Rob Gronkowski TE

    3. Jerome Murphy
    We could have selected Jimmy Graham TE

    4. Mardy Gilyard
    We could have selected Aaron Hernandez TE

    5. Michael Hoomanawanie TE

    6. Fendi Onobun TE

    How about 2011's draft? we use our 2nd pick on...you guessed it another TE Lance Kendricks. Schools still out on him.

    This is just one example of how poor our scouts and coaching staffs ability to recognize talent is.

    We have wasted so many draft picks on TE's the last 5 or 6 years it's sickening.

    You know... there was one poster here who had Jimmy Graham as his #1 sleeper pick in 2010. Can't recall who that poster was, but I think his name rhymes with AshmengerRam.

    Jimmy Graham was going to be a playmaker at TE, and our management knew that, but decided to get the Jimmy Graham wannabe clone in Fendi Onobun, which did not pay dividends.

    How many people wish we drafted Gronkowski?

    If we’d done that then Gronk would currently be injured (after showing promise) and Illinois Mike would be catching balls for fun for a different team - that’s the way of the Rams!

    Sadly, that's how it works for us.

    And Gronkowski would be labeled the next Joe Flopenstein. Anyone remember him?

    I remember him lol but you are all correct the Gronk deal would have him lined up with his two brothers doing nothing.
