Linehan also said there's a "very serious" chance the Rams could take a quarterback, even though they're set with Marc Bulger and Gus Frerotte, who signed from Miami. He said there are three quarterbacks worthy of going that high, Vince Young of Texas, Jay Cutler of Vanderbilt and Matt Leinart of Southern California.
Of course, there is a chance none will be available when the Rams pick.
"Whether you like it or not, or if it makes sense on paper, it's hard to get your hands on players that can be great in this business," Linehan said. "We feel strongly enough about one of those guys and if he's there and falls wherever he falls, I think that it is a big possibility that we'll take one.
"I'm not just saying that as a smoke screen, they are what they are and you can't deny that."
Linehan said the Rams would be willing to trade up or down, if the scenario is right for the team, but added that the draft isn't "fantasy football."
Rams set the table and made a trade with the Denver, picked up a 3rd.
