There's no doubt that our RAMS need to add a premier LT at some point. The Orlando Pace situation is the key. If the RAMS can get Pace and his agent on the same page as our RAMS this year. (big IF) Then what is the rush for this years draft as far as the LT position is concerned. What do the LT prospects look like for next years draft? I think it's pretty safe to say that we will have a fairly high draft pick next year. It hurts to say that but it's more than likely accurate.
Curry has been described by many of the so-called experts as the safest pick in this years draft. We do need a MLB. Keeping in mind that all draft picks are a gamble. Do we pass on the LT's this year or pick one up in the later rounds and go for the MLB that is very promising? Again this all hinders on the Pace situation. Obviously if Pace is gone then this is all a mute point.
Some will say that using the #2 pick in the draft on a MLB is too high. My rebuttle to that is that we need to start doing things differently. Think outside the box. Whatever our RAMS approach has been the last several years hasn't been working. Our won/loss record is proof of that. It's time to be a leader instead of a follower.
What I'm suggesting is this: (with Pace on board)
2. Best available Center
From there on we take the best available player on the board that fits our many needs. (LT/DT/DE/SS/CB/WR/QB) I threw in CB and WR just in case Holt and Bartell are gone. Of course Free Agency could change the list of needs greatly.
Bring it on...blast away.
