    Rank the Rams' Needs

    I think most would agree that the Rams' top needs this offseaon, IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER, are:

    Offensive Guard
    Wide Receiver
    Running Back (back-up/future starter)
    4-3 Pass Rusher (DE or DT)
    Outside LB
    Cornerback (depth)
    Strong Safety

    How would you rank these needs in terms of priority?

    Re: Rank the Rams' Needs

    My ranking would probably be...

    Wide Receiver
    Outside LB
    4-3 Pass Rusher (DE or DT)
    Offensive Guard
    Running Back (back-up/future starter)
    Strong Safety
    Cornerback (depth)

    Though when I look at it, I feel like RB should be a bit higher.

    Re: Rank the Rams' Needs

    1. Wide receiver
    2. Outside linebacker
    3. Offensive Guard
    4. Backup RB
    5. Cornerback depth
    6. Strong Safety
    7. 4-3 Pass Rusher

    Reason why I brought the DE dead last is because I'd like to give George Selvie a chance to develop alongside Chris Long. The guy's really fast and physical, all he needs is development and experience. With the concerns of injury on Bartell, I'd bring it up a little unless Jerome Murphy can become a reliable threat out of the nickel coverage.

    Re: Rank the Rams' Needs

    1. olb
    2. wr - i like alexander's potential if he can stay healthy, and i wonder about that. still i believe the possibility is there so i'll move it down a notch
    3. guard
    4. pass rusher - i believe these two are basically a wash as far as how much of a need it is, we absolutely need both
    5. backup rb
    6. corner depth
    7. safety depth - at the corner and safety spots i like the guys we already have and some of the young guys so i don't see either spot as a huge need, but i wouldn't mind seeing us take a chance on a guy that will make us even better at those spots

    Re: Rank the Rams' Needs

    My ranking:

    1. Wide Receiver
    2. Outside LB
    3. Offensive guard
    4. RB (backup/future starter)
    5. 4-3 Pass rusher
    6. Strong Safety
    7. CB

    I think there's an argument for pushing guard up to #2, specifically RG but outside LB needs to be addressed. WR goes without saying but if anyone did need to be convinced, I'd point to the Detroit game.

    Re: Rank the Rams' Needs

    My ranking:

    1. WR
    2. Outside LB
    3. Guard
    4. Pass rushing DE
    5. Backup RB
    6. Safety
    7. Cornerback depth

    I'm hoping that a linebacker could be picked up in free agency and I think the rest can be drafted

    Re: Rank the Rams' Needs

    My ranking:

    1. Wide Receiver
    2. Offensive guard
    3. Outside LB
    4. RB (backup/future starter)
    5. 4-3 Pass rusher
    6. Strong Safety
    7. CB

    I'd have liked to make an amendment to that list so that it reads: 'Red Zone Threat' instead of 'Wide Receiver' at the very top. I wouldn't have a problem if that player was a tight end, nor would I be upset if we neglected WR completely in round one if the value wasn't there. I will say that I think we should board the Ingram Express if he's available.

    I dont understand why safety is ranked so low on many peoples list. Spags is so successful with his blitzing schemes which requires us to have a good secondary so our guys can get to the QB. if we put a good cover safety next to OJ out D will greatly benefit. OG is high on my list because i like the idea of protecting Bradford.

    It's not that it's low, it's because everything is higher.
