    Who's asking for agreement?

    I do think that throwing up your hands and saying its all over because we didn't take Claiborne given the needs we have is ridiculous.

Some might not like that dose of realism, but I'd prefer a slow, steady build leading to continued long-term success, than bringing in one or two big players who swim around in a pool of goldfish. AKA Steven Jackson, Sam Bradford. Two 'difference makers' who without equal quality around them on the offense are limited in terms of the impact they can have. Bringing the average level of ability up across the whole side and THEN adding your cherries on top is the sensible way to go, imo. If we get De Castro or Floyd, we've done exceptionally well. Not sexy, but great team building.
    Heres the thing...adding one #45 and whiffing on consensus SHUT DOWN CORNERS in the PASS HAPPY NFL is STUPID. Period. The Rams have already stockpiled picks for the next couple drafts. This pick was #6...IN HAND!! No assurance they will pick this high ANY TIME in the next 2 drafts! Top DB in the entire draft. Do you WATCH Ram games? They have been getting torched for years. This is a real area of need. Adding Finnegan was nice...but this would have made them SPECIAL vs opponents passing attacks. I have heard it said (by pros) many times...CB has the easiest learning curve for NFL rookies.

    Your certainty is reassuring.

    Teams who stockpile picks do so because they have sucked at drafting for years! This is how you right the ship!

    Is that what I did?

    No its not over. Its still going on. But its not going as good as it could be. Claiborne is a top five talent. Whoever we pick at #45 isn't.

    Seems like a lot of NEW Rams fans here. Some of us know the history of this debacle...and this looks familiar. What now? Another Jimmy Kennedy? Another Adam Carriker? Im STOKED!

    Figures. Fisher doesn't give a dang about the offense. We finished with the 2nd worst record for NOTHING. The Rams blew it big time.

    3 first round picks in the last 5 years on our DL. Seems cool to me.

    Not missed a game in nearly five years - enough time to recognise that we have big needs all over, not just at CB.

    I hear both sides of this story, I just don't think the sky's falling in just yet and think there's a lot of value to be had in the trades we've made. Altho I'd rather have seen De Castro drafted than Brockers, I have to say.

    fingers crossed on Brockers.i was hoping for DeCastro. i`d prefer Worthy over Brockers but hopefully the coaching staff see more in him than i do.

    Thank you for typing exactly what I was thinking.
