    I'm with you on this. Our receiving corp "IF HEALTHY" is pretty darn good.

    My bad, although I swear I checked. Maybe I needed to refresh.

    WHY??

    Do you really think Smith can make an impact on the Rams receiving core? The guys play style is so similar to Donnie Avery and Mark Clayton. Do you really think Smith's play will standout next to Clayton and Avery?

    Re: Official ClanRam Scouts Mock Draft Discussion Thread

    I agree that the WR corp is better then we think but injuries are starting to become the normal rather then the exception and when that happens; we need to move on from the injury prone guys and get some WR's that can last 16 games (or 18/ or what ever the new CBA is)


    ohhh yeah ... no worries VegasRam

    Edit - upon further review, I seemed to have had a serious brain fart. You are absolutely right in Smith's similarities (to at least Avery, Clayton's better), and with the RB's gone, I would take Hankerson over Smith.
    (Maybe even if LeShoure and Williams are still there). And also maybe, it is between him and Rudolph.

    My basis is we cannot help Bradford enough, and short of a (not available) guard at this point, giving him more targets is the next best thing.

    Actually we can help Bradford in other ways like building a dominating Defense and helping Bradford with field position. Or having playmakers on D like the Saints did on their SB run and get turnovers for Bradford.

    Also I feel like plenty of people think the Rams are FORCED to draft a WR but other than Jones, green, and Hankerson the only other potential #1 WR is Tandon Doss (this years version of Danario Alexander). Spags drafts on value at positional need rather than just need.

    Last year people thought we are forced to draft a RE in the 2nd round. Because "we had no pass rush" Spags went and drafted someone based on value in Saffold and look how it turned out

    I agree that the Rams don't have to take a WR, particularly if the value is not there. Don't forget, at some point there will be FA, and there are some options out there worth a look at the WR spot.

    Re: Official ClanRam Scouts Mock Draft Discussion Thread

    So...

    Its almost the Rams' second pick...

    Do they go with what's left at WR (Titus Young, Torrey Smith, Greg Little)...

    Do they bolster the RB corps (LeShoure, Williams, Hunter, Todman)...

    Or do they go pure BPA (Rudolph, Dowling, ???)

    Who's it going to be?

    Stay tuned!

    LeShoure, Williams and Todman are really intriguing.

    After WR, RB, and Rudolph, I would think about Ben Ijalana or Marcus Cannon at guard. Both could play right tackle if one of our tackles is injured, but both also have their own worries- Ijalana coming from lesser competition and Cannon's weight. Ijalana could be the best pass protecting guard in the draft, and I think we will be doing a lot of that with McBradford. With picking a guard here, a RB in the 3rd, and a WR in FA, our offense would be ready to roll.

    Im not a fan of the Kyle Rudolph pick. I would prefer Williams or Todman over him. Not to mention Mason Foster.

    Re: Official ClanRam Scouts Mock Draft Discussion Thread

    I get that some might not like the pick, but if you think about it, it makes a lot of sense.

    Of the players on the board, Rudolph is arguably the top RECEIVER (not a WR, but a receiver) left. Many have him as a first round talent.

    As for other positions, such as RB, I suspect that some of the players the Rams are apparently looking at would still be there in Round 3.

    Re: Official ClanRam Scouts Mock Draft Discussion Thread

    Honestly i would prefer taking Dowling and putting him at safety but the Kyle Rudolph pick would actually work out well.

    Illinois Mike was not known for his receiving ability coming out of college and Bradford made him look good. Even Bajema got his first 2 career touchdowns (in the same game). Just imagine what Bradford can do with an extremely talented TE.

    Bradford was successful with Greshiem in college. If Rudolph can stay healthy the Bradford-Rudolph combo can really become dangerous. Especially when we have speed in Avery and DX on the outside this pick can really help spread the field
