    Playmaker at TE

    Would anyone like to see the Rams go after a proved playmaker at TE like Ben Watson? Or maybe draft a guy that can run the seam like Pitt's Dickerson? Just wondering on your thoughts.

    They wont be signing Ben Watson as he has signed for the Browns...but i think they definately will pick up one somewhere in the draft.

    Someone in the draft makes sense. I still like the idea of trading for Scheffler or Olsen if the price is right.

    Re: Playmaker at TE

    Providing the Rams do (and I fully expect them to) draft Bradford, I'd love to see them make a move up for Gresham if he starts to slip to the bottom of the 1st. Gresham has a 1st round grade and is described as a dynamic pass catching TE. Reuniting Bradford with his college TE could only reduce the learning curve for the young QB and will provide him with a tall, reliable safety blanket as well as productive red-zone target.

    I think the Rams strategy when it comes to the TE position is to wait until the end of the 1st round or day 1 of the draft. If Gresham falls out of round 1, the Rams take him at 33. That should be a no-brainer. If he is selected, as he is expected to be, the FO gets on the horn with the Broncos and Bears and starts talking picks for Sheffler and Olsen.

    There were reports out of the combine that Gresham spent a night in the film room with the Rams brass, so if he's their guy I think they should make a move up to grab him.

    What about Owen Daniels? He has shown reliability and can be a big game changer. He is coming of an injured season, so why not sign him for a 2-3 year deal? If he's half the TE he was before the injury, it would still be an upgrade over what we currently have.

    I'm pretty sure Owen Daniels was tendered at at first round compensation.

    He is good, real good, but not that good.



    Here's something I just thought of though, carriker and a 2nd or 3rd pick for cooley and maybe andre carter (i think thats the de).

    Not sure how much the skins value cooley, it doesnt seem like he has been too consistent, but he sure did torch us last year IIRC.

    I think a TE will end up being one of the more vital pieces for this offense next year. We all saw dropped passes and missed opportunities for guys like McMichael and Fells last season, and with a new QB under center this season (whomever it may be) TE will see the ball a lot.

    Dorin Dickerson's a beast. I like Aaron Hernandez too.
