    Rams Showing Strong Interest in Brandstater

    By Ed Thompson

    The St. Louis Rams are showing strong interest in Tom Brandstater, a 6-foot-5, 220-pound quarterback out of Fresno State.

    The Rams, according to a source, had scheduled a private workout/meeting on March 10 for the strong-armed thrower. He's also scheduled for an official visit with the team on April 15-16.

    Just prior to the NFL Scouting Combine, Brandstater tore a lat muscle under his right arm, but still managed to make a strong showing in passing drills and in workouts despite the injury. He opted not to participate in the school's Pro Day on March 11 to allow the muscle to heal, and will hold a personal Pro Day on April 11.

    During the 2008 season, Brandstater completed 59.6 percent of his passes for 2,664 yards and 18 touchdowns. He's been receiving high ratings for his combination of size and mobility, his arm strength, football intelligence and leadership skills. He finished third among all quarterbacks at the Combine in the three-cone drill and fifth in the 20-yard shuttle.

    I just found out he will be turning 25 this year. Not exactly what I'd like to have in terms of a "developmental QB" because once he develops he will be around 28-29, so it will be a one and done contract if anything materializes with him.

    i have to agree with bald 81 on this. if we go for a devolpmental qb, he shoud be 21-23. not 25. if he was around that age id say pick him up. but 25 for a dev. is not a choice option. so now i must say no on him. we need to find someone younger. im thinking next year or two we draft a franchise qb in the 1st. id say stafford this year, but we need other elements first and bulger can last another couple years and be good. but im hoping next year we draft a franchise qb with our 1st, even if we have to trade up to get him.
