    Kirwan/Brandt Analysis of Rams Picks from NFL.com

    Kirwan/Brandt Analysis of Rams Picks from NFL.com
    compiled and posted by sanches at http://www.realramsfans.com/

    1 19 Alex Barron OT Florida State
    Pat Kirwan's Analysis
    This is a personnel director's dream. A left tackle, almost 6-8 and over 300 pounds who runs 4.9, falls into your lap. The most impressive number he has is 38-inch arms, which is great for blocking purposes. The best left tackle candidate in the draft, line coaches worried about his passion for the game and lower leg strength for run blocking. But in this instance, Barron has to go to the right tackle spot with Orlando Pace on the left side, who just happens to be the highest-paid tackle in the league.

    2 50 Ronald Bartell CB Howard
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    He started school at Central Michigan and transferred to Howard. Why? He told me that his mother wanted him to have a good education. He can probably play cornerback if he slims down and can play safety as well (played both at Howard).

    3 66 Oshiomogho Atogwe FS Stanford
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    He's a safety who played in a very good program and is a smart player. He's a solid player considering the area we're drafting in.

    3 81 Richie Incognito C Nebraska
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    Had he not had off-the-field problems, he would have been a first-round pick. Here's a funny story: When his great grandfather came over from Italy, he couldn't speak english and the people in immigration didn't speak italian. So when the time came to give them a last name, the folks there wrote in "Incognito." The rest is history.

    4 117 Jerome Carter SS Florida State
    Pat Kirwan's Analysis
    The Rams tried experimenting putting Tinoisamoa in at safety, and it failed. They had to find a safety, and this is the safety. He's a good player who has the potential to be a starter.

    134 Claude Terrell G New Mexico
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    A four-year starter at New Mexico who is really a big, strong space eater. He's also pretty agile for his position.

    144 Jerome Collins TE Notre Dame
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    From Chicago originally, Collins changed positions at Notre Dame. He came in as a linebacker, then tried out defensive end, and then made his way to tight end. He did not start one game at Notre Dame.

    192 Dante Ridgeway WR Ball State
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    Ridgeway caught 104 passes in 2004. Another player who left school early and could have been picked higher next year. Went to high school in Illinois. He has the capabilities to be a really good receiver despite outstanding speed.

    210 Reggie Hodges P Ball State
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    He was my top-ranked punter based on what he did at the combine. He really looked good. He was a walk-on at Ball State.

    250 Ryan Fitzpatrick QB Harvard
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    I think this is a good pick. When you lead a team to an undefeated season, no matter the league, you have skills. And, he is very, very smart.

    251 Madison Hedge**** FB North Carolina
    Gil Brandt's Analysis
    He started at fullback, then moved to defensive end, and then went back to fullback. He is my favorite blocking fullback in the draft. They might try to make a tight end out of him.

    Kirwan seemed to love him, but Gil Brandt did NOT like the Barron pick.

    The Stltoday.com also reported BEFORE the draft the director of Personnel
    (McClutcheon) told the press the Rams had concerns about Barron's intensity.

    We now know that the Rams were first trying to trade up to get Safety (Davis) from Georgia and then they tried to trade up for (Jammal Brown).

    Can you provide a source to show they were trying to trade up for Brown? All I've seen regarding their trying to trade up was to get Davis.
