    I think he's way off on where some of these players will be taken.

    Really, which ones? I am certainly not disagreeing with you just curious to hear some of your thoughts on the draft. We need all the draft analysis that we can get in this slow time of the year. Slow for the Rams anyway. I love to read different views and mocks from other fans perspectives that may get to see some of these guys play more than others depending on which market you live in.

    I think that Pat Willis in the 2nd is a little low, but if some of those guys are around in the 2nd then by all means.

    Perhaps, perhaps not. Kiper isn't the only one that has viewed Willis as a potential round two prospect. Keep in mind that Scout.com's article about what they heard NFL scouts saying at the Senior Bowl was that Willis "was not graded as a first-round choice."

    It'll be an interesting saga to try and keep track of between now and the draft. Ultimately the only important ranking is what NFL teams have on their draft boards, and who knows what that is.

    some of these guy's , such as palko, sould not even be a concideration for free agency. he has some real bumbs being drafted, and guy's like j.l. higgins in the middle of day 2, c'mon, man he could go rd 2 just because teams are wanting proven return guy's and he has it all.
