    PFW: Rams feel good about personnel at safety

    From Pro Football Weekly...

    It’s obvious the Rams will be concentrating on bolstering their defense this offseason, but one position we hear they feel pretty good about is safety, where they believe second-year pro O.J. Atogwe and veteran Corey Chavous performed well for the most part this season at free safety and strong safety, respectively. After playing primarily on special teams his rookie season, Atogwe has shown steady development and impressive playmaking skills with six forced fumbles and three interceptions. As expected, Chavous, a serious student of the game, has done a solid job directing traffic in an otherwise very young secondary and providing leadership, both on and off the field. Team insiders believe an intriguing third piece of the safety puzzle could be third-round ’06 rookie Jon Alston, whose strength and speed make him a nice potential fit as a “box safety” backup to Chavous next season.

    I am beginning to see that the Rams are going to go front seven early and often in the draft.

    This is from Rotoworld.com earlier in December, and seems to suggest that perhaps there isn't a consensus about our safety situation, at least not from those who watch the team...

    Atogwe, a major liability in St. Louis' secondary all year, looks likely to suit up on Monday night. The Rams need to address their safety situation in the offseason and could look at LSU's LaRon Landry or Miami of Florida's Brandon Meriweather in a strong draft for safeties.

    i think we will see a safety drafted, because it seems to be a strong draft for safeties this year

    Of course, the author of the Rotoworld blurb is unclear as to which school Meriweather plays for, which could call his analysis into question.
