    Right now, I'd go with Curry.
    This is exactly what I am thinking.

    These are the 3 that I really like at #2 as well. If we end up with J. Smith/E. Monroe/A. Curry with that pick, I'll be thrilled.

    Re: St. Louis Rams like what they see in Aaron Curry

    After seeing his 40 time I pray we draft him. The guy has blazing speed for a linebacker which means he can be a 3 down player.

    Re: St. Louis Rams like what they see in Aaron Curry

    Just because we need an offensive tackle, doesnt make the best available offensive tackle as good as the best available linebacker. What we need is the best player available at a position of need and at this point, that is curry.

    ramming speed to all

    OMG!

    Before when i was making the case for the all mighty one all u were saying there is a bigger need at OT. I even made the point that we would drop Holt and still u guys were sayin The way our OL is we need an OT.

    If we cut Holt wont the great one be the guy that is the best available player (even after injury rehab) in the draft? General Counsal.

    All of yall were jockin on me the fact that "we should get the guy who will replace Pace."


    I really dont see how this Curry situaion is differnt from the chosen one's situation:

    If holt is gone then the Black Jesus would fill in the need at WR#1. He would also fit perfectly in the Shurmur's WCO where the YAC is more important than the RUN. But yall copped him cuz "we had a bigger need"

    That guy out of Wake Forest would also fill in a minor need. He would be a big hieght improvement over Witherspoon right? Yea. the big aaron Curry is a whole 1/2 inch taller than the undersized Witherspoon at MLB. Maybe Kevin Dyson could have used that half an inch to tie the superbowl vs. the Rams up.

    I sick of jumping bandwagons now from Andre Smith to The next Jerry Rice to Eugene Moroe. And i sure will not go to that person out of Wake Forest.


    Im not trying to make the case for the Black Spiderman again im just trying to push accross a point that u guys did to me. We need to address our biggest need with the 2nd pick. And to prove that this is no different to the people who wanted us to take God's 2nd son (props to Weedle).

    In Bold u know who he is he doesnt even need an intro. If u dont know by now i got another hint the Future Hall of Famer

    Re: St. Louis Rams like what they see in Aaron Curry

    Honestly people are always bound to change their minds on who to like depending on the informationt hat is published. What happened this weekend at the combine with Crabtree loosing SIGNIFICANT stick and Curry throwing down a great combine, just adds to the opinion. To be fair, there were a lot of people who liked Curry anyways. But a lot of people who liked Crabtree to be the BPA lost tons of faith int hat this weekend and instead have shifted to Curry. Jason Smith is a great tackle, but Curry is by far the BPA.

    The OT may or may not be deep; it's going to depend on the kind of run there is on OT in the first round. I anticipate both Smiths, Monroe, Oher, Beatty, and possible Britton being gone by the time our second round pick rolls around. In that case, the second round options aren't incredibly impressive.

    Perhaps; I think Curry can make as good a case as anyone at this point. But I think it's important at this stage in the process to reiterate that we're talking opinions here. There likely isn't one unquestionable best player available in this draft when our pick rolls around. It's all going to depend on everyone's rankings, and ultimately for us, it's going to depend on the Rams' rankings. We have no idea right now if they feel the best player available at a position of need is Curry.

    Re: St. Louis Rams like what they see in Aaron Curry

    I think it all hinges on restructuring Pace. If we keep Pace then Curry is a great pick up but if we lose Pace we need to draft a starting LT. That will take one of the top OTs not one of the 2nd rounders... imho.

    Re: St. Louis Rams like what they see in Aaron Curry

    To me, Aaron Curry is the second best prospect in the entire draft. I love him as both a player and a person especially after his media session at the combine. Here is where I get concerned about him, and it has nothing to do with his talent, measurables or play. IMO, to justify taking him #2, he must a) be a game changer and not just a good LB, and b) he must play ILB. The problem is that we don't know for sure if he can play the MIC. Yes, he does have the size, speed and instincts to do it, but do you really take the gamble with #2 to figure that out?

    After watching us use (not waste, use) Witherspoon at MLB for three seasons essentially out of position as well as playing Adam Carriker at DT instead of his natural DE spot, you can understand why I am a little weary of taking Curry to play a position where he has spent a total of six practices at. Curry could turn out to be the next great MLB in this league, but with such a premium pick I can't help but be somewhat cautious.

    Honestly im an not a fan of Curry at all. He will prorbaly be a good LB but we dont have the 5th pick. We have the 2nd pick and i dont think a MLB should go in the top 3. We have a bigger need at OT than at MLB.

    I dont really understand this logic. If the guy is drafted and turns out to be like Urlacher or Singletary would you say it's too high to draft a LB? I'm not saying he is going to be that good but I dont understand saying it's too high for anyone unless it's a fb,te,k or punter other than that in my opinion it's not too high for any other position.

    Re: St. Louis Rams like what they see in Aaron Curry

    Aaron Curry, Jason Smith, Michael Crabtree..those are my top three players for the Rams to draft at #2.

    He won't be there if we trade down a few spots. If we pass on him, he will be (as Bar-BQ pointed out) a Chief. They are making the switch to 3-4 and need LBs, especially one with the versatility, safety, and potential of Aaron Curry. If he does not go at #2, he will go #3.

    If you don't want to draft him because you feel OT is the bigger need, that's cool; I understand. However, there will be no trading back to get him. In fact, while it is not likely, it's not out of the question that the Chiefs trade up to get him.
