    Report: Rams expressed serious interest in Osi.

    Per rotoworld:

    The Rams and Panthers reportedly expressed serious interest in trading for Osi Umenyiora during the Senior Bowl and February's Combine.
    At the time, the Giants were not entertaining any offers. However, Giants beat reporter Mike Garafolo agrees with NFL Network's Mike Lombardi that Umenyiora could be put on the block if New York uses the 15th overall pick on Jason Pierre-Paul, who GM Jerry Reese seems to covet. Umenyiora, 28 and coming off his worst season, might be available for a third-round pick.

    If we can snatch him, I will be that much more excited for next season!

    A quick fix but he should fit REALLY well in Spag's schemes.

    Off-topic: Nice to see your rep go up after the Vick over hype THOLTFAN81.

    I'd offer them a fourth or maybe our two fifth round picks on the eve of Day Three of the draft.

    Agreed. I would be really happy to see him in horns.

    Adding to the off-topic, I kind of hibernated for a little while after realizing how wrong I was (still love Vick though) , and it affected my rep..I jumped on the Bradford bandwagon, and am glad to be back outta the whiner red rep

    CANT WAIT FOR THURSDAY

    Great pass rusher spags really maximized his pro bowl ability. I would consider giving up to a third for him

    Re: Report: Rams expressed serious interest in Osi.

    To see if Osi is good value for a third round pick, let's compare other pass rushers that should be available in the third round.


    There is:

    Corey Wooten (Northwestern)

    Jermaine Cunninghman (Florida)

    Austen Lane (Murray State)



    I'm not high on Wooten, and thinks he is a better fit for a 3-4 scheme. He's not quick and fast enough to be a RE in the NFL in my opinion.

    I would take Osi over him.


    However, Cunningham and Lane are two very good DEs. I think I would take Osi over Cunningham, but with Lane's upside, I think I would take Lane over Osi.

    IDK man, I would take Osi over these 3 just because he's proven in Spags defense.

    He's proven in Spag's defense, yes, but last year, his level of production dropped. Idk that I would necessarily trade him for a 3rd round pick when there are high upside guys like Austen Lane still available.


    But, if we do trade for Osi, I wouldn't mind. He might play better when reunited with his former DC.

    yes agreed, I do think he will play MUCH better with his former DE, the Giants didn't lose much on the front 4, so I do wonder why his production dropped last year.

    Because they barely understood Bill Sheridan's defensive system.

    idk... 3rd round pick is awfully high... but if he can have 5 more productive years and Spags knows exactly what he's getting...then I feel okay about it.

    I would give a 4 for him.


    I really think he should be able to play many years under Spags. And he fits a big need and would also help Long get better. I really hope this is more than just a rumor.
