    robertson could be had at DT...

    interesting if the rams want to move out in the later part of the first round and pick up a solid DT....

    New York Newsday reports that the Jets would consider trading DT Dwayne Robertson to move up in the draft.

    Robertson would be a nice pick up for the Rams and if all it took was moving down in the 1st round I would be all for it.

    Robertson is starting to come into his own and is still young.

    Re: robertson could be had at DT...

    do you think this was one of those teams that gave the Rams a call?

    i would take him, but would trading down put us in a position to draft, for example, Justin Harrell?

    That guy has been as big a bust as Jimmy Kennedy.

    And therein lies the risk of putting the eggs in the okoye basket. Keep in mind how hard it is for players to compete at this position and the transition involved.

    I WOULD TAKE ROBERTSON IN A HEARBEAT if all we're doing is trading down and picking up a DT... win win situation people

    A bust he has a minimum of 40 tackles and 2 sacks in every year of his career that is not a bust.

    Re: robertson could be had at DT...

    I agree its not a complete bust, but remember this guy was the 4th overall pick in the draft i think and thus, as a function of expectations, he has dramatically underperformed. He has certainly not been a dominant guy. To put it another way, he certainly is no ryan pickett.

    It would be intriguing if we could trade back get Robinson and Draft Justin Harrell. That would be possibly two new starting DTs for our 1st round pick. We would still have our 2nd and 3rd round pick. With those we might be able to get a good DE, DB, and/or LB.

    I like your posts a lot sb99, but two rookie starting defensive tackles for a team that hopes to go deep into the playoffs? You must be the ultimate optimist! Mark my words my friends, if we dont get jenkins, kennedy will be a starter and call me crazy, but i think he is going to do just fine if he can stay healthy, which i acknowledge is a big if.

    Here were Pickett's stats with the Rams:


    Year Team G Total Tkl Ast Sacks Int Yds Avg Lg TD Pass Def
    2001 St. Louis Rams 11 19 10.0 9 0.5 0 0 0.0 0 0 0
    2002 St. Louis Rams 16 67 45.0 22 0.5 0 0 0.0 0 0 4
    2003 St. Louis Rams 16 42 30.0 12 1 0 0 0.0 0 0 3
    2004 St. Louis Rams 16 45 41.0 4 2 0 0 0.0 0 0 2
    2005 St. Louis Rams 16 65 47.0 18 2 0 0 0.0 0 0 3

    Here are Robertson's stats:


    Year Team G Total Tkl Ast Sacks Int Yds Avg Lg TD Pass Def
    2003 New York Jets 16 43 34.0 9 1.5 0 0 0.0 0 0 0
    2004 New York Jets 16 52 36.0 16 3 0 0 0.0 0 0 0
    2005 New York Jets 13 43 27.0 16 3.5 0 0 0.0 0 0 1
    2006 New York Jets 16 61 35.0 26 2.5 0 0 0.0 0 0 0
    TOTAL 61 199 132.0 67 10.5 0 0 0.0 0 0

    They look fairly close to me.

    My impression is that he's better suited as an under tackle and is rather misplaced as a nose guard in the Jets' 3-4 scheme.

    Personally I don't like the idea of trading for him or getting him in a move down with New York.

    Re: robertson could be had at DT...

    Do you want the salary that will come with it and how much will it take to resign him? You may want to think a little more about this......

    I dont know where you got two rookie starting DTs. I said for our #1 pick we would get to starting DTs Robinson going into his 5th year and 1 rookie Harrell. Harrell might be a bit of a stretch to start his first year but he has that type of potential. Here is what someone else wrote about Harrell.

Harrell's stock has been on the rise of late though and he is firmly entrenched as the #3 guy at the position behind Alan Branch and Amobi Okoye.

    Has good size with long arms and the frame to bulk up further...Athletic with solid speed and good quickness...Is mobile with pretty good range...Plays the run well and is a good tackler...Will penetrate and make plays in the backfield...Tough and will play through pain...May have some versatility...Hard worker...Top intangibles.

    I want Jenkins also and have stated it many times but if it don't happen I thought this was an intriguing scenario as I said before. I never said I was sold on it but it would be interesting to be able to get two potential starting DT's for our 1st round pick. One with four years starting under his belt with very comparable if not better first four years stats to Pickett.
