    Rambow's 1st Mock & 1st Post

    Been reading the Clan for a minute, Rams fan since the Dickerson days, anyways here is my 1st post:

    Trades:
    OJ Atowe for Chicago's #3 rd. Rumor has it Chi is interedsted hopefully we can get something out of OJ before he jams.

    Alex Barron for Detroits #4 rd, Det is looking to keep Stafford safe, a starting caliber, dependable OT for a 4th is pretty reasonable.


    Rd 1 QB Sam Bradford, we need a franchise QB bottom line.



    Rd 2 TE Jermaine Gresham, best TE in the draft and also a Bradford teammate.


    Rd 3 DT Tyson Alualu, hopefully he slides to the 3rd if so we HAVE to take him.


    Rd 3 (from Chi) OLB Thaddeus Gibson, big OLB stud.


    Rd 4 FS Kam Chancellor Big FS who can lay the wood.


    Rd 4 (from Det) RT Kyle Calloway


    Rd 5 OG Brandon Carter

    Rd 5 (from Philly) RB LeGarrette Blount the talent is there, just some character issues.

    Re: Rambow's 1st Mock & 1st Post

    Welcome Rambow.

    The OJ for a 3rd trade I have mixed emotions about - while I'd like more than a 3rd round pick for OJ, our FO does not seem to feel that retaining him is a top priority. He's in the prime of his career, and if they have mixed emotions about him now, I'm not sure they're going to keep him long-term. It's confusing from the outside, but if we trade him for a 3rd I guess we extricate ourselves from a delicate situation at least.

    Barron for a 4th (2nd pick in the 4th at that) - I'll take that. He's only going to be a Ram for another year or two at most anyway. If we didn't have as many holes to fill as we do, I'm sure he'd already be gone.

    As far as the draft goes, I like it overall. I'm a fan of picking Suh, but I can understand the reasoning behind taking Bradford. Our offense was beyond bad last year, probably the worst offense I've ever seen in the NFL (and I live just outside DC so I've seen the Redskins). It seems like taking a QB is a logical choice in that situation.

    And for as much as people complain about our OL, I don't think it's that bad. Jason Brown is a stud, Jacob Bell played much better last year, and Jason Smith showed real progress last year before getting injured. Combine a solid left side of the OL to protect Bradford's blind side with S Jax, a reasonable target at TE and hopefully a healthy WR group and we could have decent offense next year IMO. Not good, mind you, but one that could hopefully at least keep our defense from playing 2/3 of the game each week.

    Thx guys, I feel you on not wanting to lose OJ, but at this point in the game I would say a 3rd is the best we could do. I imagine OJ feels pretty disrespected and I dont blame him, I cant see him wanting to play for us anymore.

    Here goes the rest: Rd 6 DE Daniel Te’o-Nesheim, decent speed for his size, not a big risk in the 6th.


    7th Rd OLB Dexter Davis, good speed, good size, good conference. (pac10)

    welcome Rambow..well to posting anyway..

    id be happy with that draft..tho i would prefer a DE to be picked higher than the 6th..unless we trade Carriker for Andre Carter (which could be a possibility) but apart from that if all those prospects panned out like they could,is only a Number 1 wideout and a DE we would have as holes..perhaps another OLB too and another CB but i think its unrealistic to think we can fill every longterm hole in this Off-season anyway.

    I'd rather keep Barron than give him up for a 4th round pick.
