    I'm goin' with DL or QB. At this point in time there doesn't appear to be any CBs that project anywhere near the top half of the draft, and, even if there were, the Rams still need to develop both lines and find a future franchise QB instead acquiring yet another rookie CB..

    WHAT SAY YE?

    gotta agree with that..and add in that i would look at getting a WR, but there may be better value elsewhere in the draft.

    the last position i would pick in the draft is another CB... we are loaded with youngsters there already and if we gonna give up on CB`s everytime they dont have perfect games..then we gonna be drafting them every year!!!
    its the hardest position on D to play by a long way and even Hall of Fame calibre CB`s have given up plenty of big plays from time to time.

    i would say d-line is pretty probable, unless our scouts really like one of these qbs. it's so far away we really have no clue of course, but we for sure need a de and at least one dt, gibson and ryan are rotation guys, not starters.

    We always say BPA, but need always gives a guy who is near the top, but maybe not at the top an assist.

    So far IMO the BPA is a guy on the DL (Ndamakung Suh), but in our situation at this point Jake Locker or Jimmy Claussen is getting the assist.

    I'd go QB then DT, DE. I'd work the FA market for a CB, don't want to have to train someone to play the position, (HILL) get someone who's established. Oh yeh, if you have the picks get a OG, OT, and TE.

I'm not calling them busts, but we need to draft the way we did when we drafted people like Jack "Hacksaw" Reynolds, Todd Lyght, Grant Wistrom, Kevin Carter, Kevin Greene and Isiah Robertson to name a few.

    A player Iwould like to watch for us is Jermaine Gresham at TE from Oklahoma. Of course it depends on our draft spot and who else is available but the TE spot is a new focal point in NFL offenses and we are very weak there and he might be perfect for our new West Coast offense. Just my thoughts at this early stage. Of course Suh the DT from Nebraska might be a good choice too, but I just don't want to be locked on a position for this draft despite our obvious needs at DE or CB.

    Go Rams!

    I agree that we need help on the DL and CB. Ndamukong Suh will be a long-term game changer in the NFL. He would be a great Ram! I wish there was a Top-5 CB we could take. A star corner would go a long way to tightening up D. GoRams!

    QB or DT.

    JMO but the best players in the draft are Bradford and Suh.

    QB, DE, or DL.

    I know this to be a fact. How do I know? Because a few people are saying Bulger sucks, Long is a bust, and Carriker is a bust. Since those few people seem to know what's best for the Rams, I am sure Devaney has listened to those people and already has his mind made up.

    Seriously, I think we will go WR or CB.

    Re: what position do we go first round?

    I say we take a DT. As we all know, the teams that have some of the best defenses are based upon a large and dominating force in the middle (Williams in Minnesota, Wilfork in NE, Hampton in Pittsburg). Spags comes from a team where the defensive line was the focal point. He knows what a quality defensive line can not only do for a defense but for a team. He's going to try to set up his own version of giants here. I see us targeting Ndamukong Suh or Terrence Cody.

    Re: what position do we go first round?

    I was of the the thought of DT up until this last game and then once again I noticed the defense started to get tired because the offense wasn't staying on the field long enough.

    It hit me it doesn't matter who we sign on the defensive side of the ball if we can't control the clock more on offense we will continue to struggle.

    I think Spags can train up on the D better than we can on the O so I think we need to go...


    1) QB
    2) WR
    3) RT
    4) RB to help Jackson

    Yes I'm crazy to think we will go all O in the 1st four but we have got to get that side of the ball going or we can add 3 more JL's and they will all be tired by the 4th quarter.
