I went Dustin Keller.
Had 815 yards receiving and 5 tds in his last year in Schottys offense. If he can manage that when Sanchez is throwing to him, imagine the connection him and Bradford could have.
Had an injured plagued 2012 season which will only make him a cheaper option.
Reunite him with Schotty and he could be a relatively cheap and solid target for Bradford. He's the perfect compliment to Kendricks/Mulligan and would virtually eliminate the need to draft a TE with one of our earlier picks.
I think there's a compelling case to be made for Loadholt and Keller/Cook, but for argument's sake Goldson's my guy.
He's a big hitter and a strong coverage player. Despite the fact that for the first time in a long time, this looks to be a deep draft class for safeties, Goldson is proven. This would be a move to solidify our defense - allowing us to turn our attention to the offensive line and WR/TE early in the draft. Someone already mentioned that he'd be stolen away from San Francisco - where he anchors the secondary - which can also only be seen as a good thing.
I'd be pleased if we were to pull one of Loadholt, Goldson, Cook or Keller to St. Louis - but if we can help ourselves and hinder a division rival, I'm all for that.
I read on Bleacher Report that if S-Jax and DA sign elsewhere and a couple players are cut (or take big pay cuts), then the Rams can have around 25 to 30 million to play with. Not sure how accurate the article is, but if it is true I'd hope we can sign a couple of impact FA's. Levitre would make the most sense at RT, and I'd prefer either Moore or Goldson at Safety. Keller would also be a smart option because he'd likely be pretty cheap due to him having a down year last season.
Fisher values the TE in his offense, and I beleve a good TE will work wonders for Sam Bradford's game. So I went with Jared Cook as a pretty good place to start. ?
I loved the Loadholt comments guys, as he was who I went with as well... I don't like Edleman as much as I like Pettis even! Would rather try to replace Danny's production in the draft. With guys like Austin or Fauria or the other tight ends etc. Even guys who catch the ball out of the back field ala a Faulk kinda back. I think J. Franklin is one guy who is highly underrated in this draft for this reason as well. He is so versatile! Andy Levietre' would be a nice luxury but signing Loadholt and drafting one of the T/G guys like a Fluker or Long gives us flexability as a swing back up training to fill a spot in the future. As far as the safeties go I always liked Mikell but he is aging and seems to be getting injured more would love to replace him through the draft at least as I mentioned in another post drafting two safeties might really help us for the future. Would be nice to replace dahl and mikell.
Louis Vasquez. Great player, Dont know why people arent talking about signing this guy.
Greg Jennings has been my guy since the season ended, and he still is.
See: This thread created in January:
Based off news today, I'm calling Eric Winston or Phil Loadholt. Smith is looking for too much money to be trusted with, based on his work ethic his first two years in the league.
I'm not sure Keller is going to have a ton of callers, so we can wait on him a couple days. Cook will be highly sought after, but I think he, too, is overestimating his worth.
I can go with loadholt or eric winston per teke above
