    I'd be very suprised. Linehan showed last year that he's more for improving needs instead of drafting wants.

    Last year he could have drafted Cutler, but traded down and got a stud in Tye Hill!

    Willis definitely has potential as a strong side linebacker, but it'd be wise to try him out in the middle first with Spoon moving outside to the SAM position. I think it would be easier for WW from a coverage standpoint to be outside, especially if we're going to ask him to cover tight ends which we have quite a bit this season.

    JaMarcus Russell is an interesting prospect, and there have been some talks of him going high in this draft on potential. Simply put though, I'm just not convinced Linehan is in a position to really consider a first round quarterback at this point, especially after the season Bulger has had and the statements he's made. Barring a total contract impasse with Marc, I would be surprised to say the least to see the Rams draft a QB in round one.

    Patrick Willis
    DT/NT
    DE
    Where did I say we should pursue a DE in the second? I don't recall saying that but maybe I did and just don't remember. I'm certainly not locked into a "We have to draft this position in the first, this in the second, this in the third" strategy, because I think we have a number of needs that could be addressed in a number of different ways. I don't think it's very constructive to limit what position you pursue in each round to one target. That said, in the Rams offseason/mock I'm working on I have us going DT in the second round.

    very good point, but i'm incline to speculate that linehan was appeasing haslett for coming aboard the team...haslett was very high on tye hill before the draft...

    if bulger wasn't such a fragile player i wouldn't think of this scenario as plausible...but you make a compelling point about bulger's standing on the team and i can't forsee the FA haggling with bulger and his agent...

    Bulger missed games last year, but he put it up 588 times and got himself put down 49 times this year......and did miss a snap. I don't know that we can hang the fragile tag on Bulger at this point.
