    *UPDATED* AR Rams Draft Board (3/15/06)

    With free agents coming and going, its time for an update. The need ratings, in particular, have been adjusted. I've also added a new variable called "dropoff factor."

    Prospect Ranking
    5.0 – Blue Chip Prospect. Certain High First Rounder

    4.0 – Solid First Rounder, but could go late in first round.

    3.0 – Marginal First Rounder, could last until second round.
    2.0 – Day 1 Selection, but not a first rounder.
    1.0 – Mid-to late round selection.

    Need Ranking
    5.0 – Immediate need. Expected to start as rookie.
    4.0 – Priority need. Expected to play/compete for starting spot as rookie.
    3.0 – Non-priority need. Could play/start, but not a high priority.
    2.0 – Depth selection. Solid starter already in place.
    1.0 – No basis to select. Waste of first round selection.

    QB: 1.0
    RB: 1.5
    WR: 1.0
    TE: 3.0
    OT: 2.0
    OG: 3.0
    C: 3.0
    DE: 4.5
    DT: 4.0
    OLB: 5.0
    MLB: 3.0
    CB: 4.0
    S: 4.5

    Dropoff Factor (How the overall quality of prospects at the position compares from the first to the second round)

    +.50 - Big dropoff at position in Round 2
    Even - Moderate dropoff at position in Round 2
    -.50 - Minimal dropoff at position in Round 2


    If two players have the same combined score, I rank them based upon my subjective preference.

    Player: Total Score (Prospect Ranking/Need Ranking/Dropoff Factor)

    1. A.J. Hawk, OLB, Ohio State: 10.0 (5.0/5.0/E)
    2. Mario Williams, DE, NC State: 10.0 (5.0/4.5/+.50)
    3. Michael Huff, S, Texas: 9.5 (5.0/4.5/E)
    4. Chad Greenway, OLB, Iowa: 9.0 (4.0/5.0/E)
    5. Haloti Ngata, DT, Oregon: 8.5 (4.5/4.0/E)
    6. Tamba Hali, DE, Penn State: 8.5 (3.5/4.5/+.50)
    7. Jimmy Williams, CB, VaTech: 8.0 (4.5/4.0/-.50)
    8. DeMeco Ryans, OLB, Alabama: 8.0 (3.5/4.5/E)
    9. Vernon Davis, TE, Georgia 7.5 (5.0/3.0/-.50)
    10. Brodrick Bunkley, DT, FSU 7.5 (3.5/4.0/E)
    11. Tye Hill, CB Clemson 7.5 (4.0/4.0/-.50)
    12. Ko Simpson, S, South Carolina 7.5 (3.0/4.5/E)

    New to list: Haloti Ngata, Tamba Hali, Brodrick Bunkley, Ko Simpson

    Dropped from list: Thomas Howard, Abdul Hodge, Mathias Kiwanuka, Daniel Bullocks

    Where's Manny Lawson at DE or even OLB?

    Not on my board. He's a 3-4 tweener, and not what the Rams need, in my opinion. Not at pick 11 anyway.

    I'd put JDub in Top 6!

    Tamba Hali is a big riser because I think he could help the Rams' run defense from the DE spot, while providing some pass rushing. I think he would be great as one of the DEs in the 3-4 sets, with Hargrove on the other side and LL dropping back to the OLB spot in those situations.

    My only hopes are that the Rams fill a gaping need and that the player picked will be a future Pro-Bowler. That would be a nice change from recent Rams' drafts, and I don't believe asking too much with a #11pick. Come on Rams FO, let's do it!

    Are you serious the rams could definetly use this guy. Yes his a tweener which makes him even more valued because we could be using a 3-4 sometime soon
