    You absolutely MUST read these quotes about Barron!


    Its interesting to see how opinions about a player can change during the months leading up to the draft. Check out these quotes about Alex Barron:


    January 18, 2005:
    "Barron is equally adept in the passing and running games and has light feet for a player his size."

    February 8, 2005:
    "With light feet for a player his size, Barron is a consistent blocker who is equally adept in both the pass and run games."

    March 6, 2005:
    "Athletically gifted with great footwork as a pass blocker, Barron started 30 games during his career. He is the clear-cut No. 1 among offensive linemen due to his strength and experience and should be a solid starter at the pro level."

    April 4, 2005:
    "He is very strong in the lower body and has quick feet in pass protection."

    April 5, 2005:
    "Ideal right tackle prospect." (Ranked 11th best player in the draft).

    April 11, 2005:
    "Barron needs to become more physical, but he has the size, strength and feet to develop into a starting right or left tackle in the NFL."

    April 24, 2005:
    Tackle Alex Barron has plenty of athletic gifts but is inconsistent in his effort, so the Rams may or may not have the right tackle they need."

    Okay... here's the punch line...

    Every one of these quotes comes from one guy. You guessed it...

    MEL KIPER!!!!!

    Wouldn't you love to be able to ask Mel how Barron went from being the "ideal RT prospect" on 4/11 to someone who may not be the RT the Rams need - not even two weeks later?!?!?!

    Great job, AV. I'm telling ya, the Rams are hated by many. No matter what the Rams, Jets and Colts do in the draft, it will never be good to the biased experts.

    AV kipper had barron as his top rated player when the rams picked and now hes not good enough go figure

    If we can get some of incognito's fire into him he can be as good as pace

    Kipper and soup of letters / gumbo.

    Kipper is a motor mouth. Very agile and fast on his articulated words. :tough:

    Now, when you consider that these type of sports/NFL "analysts" must have 'something to say' about a few hundred college seniors, well, their commentaries really get mixed into a soup of letters; much too rich to enjoy or even to figure out. But again, that's their job.

    He's gotta look busy, you know.

    Despite all the normal contradictions that come about at this stage for drafted rookies, Alex Barron seems to pass all the personal tests with a well deserved B.

    Knock - knock - knock on Ram helmets.

    While I think Atogwe's gonna be great for us in the future, I'm looking for a more significant veteran contributor to add after June cuts.

    Had the Texans taken him @ 16th overall, it would have been the steal of the first round.
