    Or O line, how do you feel about it?

    As of right now, with no other additions ( except maybe a 5th or 6th round depth pick),how do you feel about it? Im thinking it will be something like this
    LT= Smith
    LG= Bell
    C = Brown
    RG= Haley/Greco
    RT= Barron

    Barron, as much as it pains me to say it, is BY FAR our most durable player (on the line) and CAN block when hes not daydreaming of basketball. He usually shuts down the opposing teams best pass rusher when lined up against him, and has perfect size and good ability. Spags has to find a way to get into his head and help him with focus.

    Haley, is solid imo and should really push Greco for the RG starting spot. If Greco ends up starting then Haley would be great depth at Center and the guard spots.

    Brown, is a GREAT center and should be a good leader for us again this year.

    Bell, well some like him some dont, I think he solid at pass blocking but needs to buff up a little to improve his run blocking.

    Smith, I hope he can take the LT position this year and not look back. Last year was a tough one for all of us and I hope he can adjust his game to the NFL and be the pick we all hoped he would. I like his run blocking, he seems to be solid except for some footwork issues that I think he will get ironed out.

    Setterstrom,Trautline,and whoever else Im forgetting, Im hoping will give us decent depth although if we have to test that depth like we did last year we're in trouble.

    Id like to know what you guys think, Im pretty optimistic about this group providing most can stay healthy. I think we have some real talent on this line and hope that for the first time in MANY years our O line could be a strength for our team but, only time will tell.

    GO RAMS!!!

    I think they need to address OT depth no later than rd 3.

    I am happy with the left side.

    The right side, I have a little more concerns.


    I'm fine with Greco as the RG, but RT is the one question mark I have.


    I would take a guy like Jared Veldheer or Kyle Calloway or somebody similar to that mold in the draft around rounds 3-5. Some big guy that can be a mauler.

    Yeah Id like to get rid of Barron and add a mauler type at RT, but I was just thinking as it is right now. Hopefully we WILL add a RT somewhere in FA or draft, but other than that Ive got a pretty good feeling about this group, or maybe I shouldnt drink so much lol.

    Re: Or O line, how do you feel about it?

    Last year the left side of the line was very good and I hope Smith can develop. That's not a given or is it going to be easy but at this point, you sort of have to expect and plan on him being solid over there. Barron was very good last year (as soon as the ball snaps he's always been pretty darn good). To me the serious problem has been and still is RG. Goldberg played well there last year in his limited time. We'll see, I'm guessing the job will open to whoever plays the best in camp. Don't rule out Allen. He played pretty poorly when he came in last year but he had a massive jump up from his poor college talent. Just like with rookie QBs, you get guys like that in the game and see what an offseason does. Last year he was listed as the best first punch OG prospect but he was unknown coming from a small college.

    If we find a after the 3rd OT in the draft that we think can start right away at RT then we need to take him. Otherwise I think we have a solid line this year.

    Believe you're looking for Fraley there, friend. The o-line looks pretty decent. I'd rank it ahead of several other teams' efforts even division rival Seattle. We do need to keep addressing depth, as whether we have a great line or not--injuries happen. Especially to this team. A mid-draft pick should be dedicated to OT because I don't think anyone expects Barron to sign a long term deal after the '10 season.

    Re: Or O line, how do you feel about it?

    Best case I think this could be a mid tier line. Say 15th to 20th in the NFL. If bad things continue to happen, well, is it unethical to take out a life insurance policy on each of our QBs?
