    But instead, they helped him rewrite the NFL history books on the way to winning one of two Superbowls in the greatest three year period in Rams history.

    And by the way, the current Rams have a 1st pick in the draft at LT, the 1st pick of the 2nd round at RG and a 3rd rounder at RT. So slide them in just behind Carolina Panthers and ahead of New Orleans sir.

    That tells me that he doesn't share your view of the Oline.
    Yeah, he may be proud of 2013's offensive line.

    However, we can't ignore the fact that, as of right now, our offensive line looks completely different than it did last season.

    First, I'd say I think that any beating that Bulger/Warner got had at least as much to do with the play calling than with the line.

    Second, I think the "our o-line is fine" crowd seem to be missing the point (from my perspective). The easiest path to the playoffs is to win the division; in our division, there are very sturdy (if not dominant) front seven's; our offense depends on ball control; therefore, to get to the playoffs, our o-line must be at least good as the talent on the defensive front seven. Q.E.D.

    In other words, the question isn't whether our line played decently last year…that's easily the best they played in years. Did they play well enough to compete with our division rivals? Other than the home game against Seattle, the answer is clear "no." Add in the unclear status of Long (health), Saffold (FA), Dahl (potential cap causality), and Wells (potential cap causality), our ability to compete in the division depends on strengthening the offense line.

    "#2 - Jadeveon Clowney - Do we need another DE… not really; but when the best player in the draft falls into your lap" I keep hearing this, but have only seen this guy play a few times. Why does everyone assume he is that great ? To be really great in the NFL, doesn't one have to work really hard no matter how great of a physical specimen they are ?

    "#13 - Mike Evans" = Manziel made this guy look good. He will be out of the NFL within 3 years - Serious bust potential. Would like take another WR in the 2nd or 3rd if we get an extra pick.

    Not a single word of this is true. Yes, he has bust potential, but guess what? So do the other 300 prospects. Manziel did not make him look good. That is what would be known as "lazy scouting".
