    Pick three players in 2013

    The GM job is never done. So what would you do with our first two picks in the draft. What ONE free agent would you bring in next year. Lets also assume we have locked up Amendola.

    Not knowing where we are going to pick the board is open just pick two players you would like to add.

    Free agent
    Greg Jennings WR from Packers

    Draft
    Star Lotulelei DT Utah
    Eric Reid FS LSU

    Pick three players in 2013

    Although, not a Wallace fan, I am on board with picking up a veteran WR. I think I'll defer to Av on the ND backer, but Mingo and Reid? Reunite with Brockers to provide some SEC punchyouindamouth…provided the Rams can have Two jerseys with Long on it of corse.

    Free Agent: Louis Delmas (S, Detroit)
    -Delmas could be a contender for the franchise tag in Detroit, but he's had success under Schwartz, who coached under Fisher, so the transition may not be that large. He certainly fills an area of need, and at his age if he checks out healthy, could be a Ram for a while. Everyone the Rams are counting on now at the position - Mikell, Stewart, and Dahl - are holdovers from the Spags regime and really haven't done much to show that they're locked into their job. There's a reason the LSU safety is projected often to the Rams in mock drafts at this stage of the game.

    Draft: Keenan Allen (WR, Cal) and Luke Joeckel (OT, Texas A&M)
    -It was tempting to go with a free agent receiver and add a veteran presence to a young group. I wouldn't be opposed to that, but I went this direction. The top receiver varies depending on whom you talk to, but I'm going with Allen at the moment. As for Joeckel, we need offensive line help, and the two guys projected to start for the Rams this season are not starting, due to injury and not being with the team anymore respectively. Unless Saffold blazes back to outstanding play this season, I think we have to at least investigate some alternatives.

    Pick three players in 2013

    Free agent- Greg Jennings would be a perfect pick up. Great overall receiver to help the core.

    Draft- best oline man in draft

    Re: Pick three players in 2013

    Draft - Keenan Allen and the BOLA (one of the A&M guys, or one of the 'Bama guys)

    FA - I want to say Jake Long, but I assume the fins will throw out all stops to bring him back. So I will go with the Texans' Duane Brown, as they are going to have to spend big dollars to keep Schaub in house.

    But HUb, that's 2 OTs you've picked up there. Isn't that overkill?

    Maybe we should ask our starting OTs, Wayne Hunter and Barry Richardson........you know, the OT dynamic duo. Or rather let's ask Sam Bradford who keeps getting up close and personal with opposing defenders.

    First I like what you have done here Nick with your picks.

    My thought process on the vet receiver gives us instant offense and gives Quick and Givens a mentor much like Cortland Finnegan is to Jenkins and Johnson.

    On taking a DT, I'm taking page out of the Lions playbook. They draft Ndamukong Suh and followed that up with Nick Fairley. I'm not looking to replace Brokers or Langford. that being said Langford has not played very well to date. I would use Langford as a DT/DE, on running downs replace Quinn at times. Also it's about keeping the front four fresh and having depth.

    We have to focus on winning the west, that means stopping Marshawn Lynch and Frank Gore.
    Last game we allowed 4.7 yards per rush and Marshawn Lynch went off for 118 yards on 20 carries.

    Interesting stuff so far.

    Re: Pick three players in 2013

    From what I've seen, I think the run defense will benefit more at this point from an influx of talent at the OLB and S spot (i.e. Te'o, Reid) than any of the DL positions.

    I think the DL of Long/Brockers/Langford/Quinn will, in time, be more than adequate, and potentially dominant.

    Re: Pick three players in 2013

    I'm not sold on Quinn vs the run and not sure he will learn to play it better. Not sure I want him too slow down at all. I would prefer getting more stout against the run with a rotation of DT's and using Quinn as a pure pass rusher. He is a liability as a four down DE right now.

    LB's would be more productive with better D line play, JL is still getting handle by guards, the guards need to be handled by the DL and free the LB's to make more plays. IMO

    He's young and improving, and his value as a pass rusher is too great to leave him on the sideline.

    LB's would be more productive with better D line play, JL is still getting handle by guards, the guards need to be handled by the DL and free the LB's to make more plays. IMO
    And yet, he currently leads the NFL in solo tackles.

    Re: Pick three players in 2013

    I'm a young GM and I have to fix this LOL,,,

    He's leading in tackles because they are running at him.

    This might be the week for Williams and the Cards' ground game because the Rams' run defense has been disappointing so far. The Rams rank 28th in run defense (135.3 yards per game) and were gouged for a season-worst 179 yards against Seattle on Sunday. Seahawks backs gained 108 yards on 14 carries running left at DE Robert Quinn and that side of the Rams' defensive line; they gained only 57 yards on 13 carries running up the middle or to their right. Certainly the Big Red took notice.
