    Long Snap

    Players experienced in long snapping are tested at both 7 and 15 yards. Each player completes 7 snaps at each distance and is graded on time and accuracy...

    A Combine Preparation DVD and Manual is available in the Scout Camp Store to assist players in their preparation...

    With the ever-increasing interest in the NFL Draft, the Scouting Combine has grown in both scope and significance. The combine allows select NFL Head Coaches & General Managers to sneak a peak at the upcoming college talent pool.

    The Scouting Combine has come a long way since National, Blesto and Quadra Scouting services began back the workouts back in 1977. The Combine has always been 'by invite only', and other than the players and team officials that are invited, very few are permitted to attend. The invitees go through various physical and mental challenges for the team officials as clubs try to evaluate the talent pool available to them:

    Sung to the tune of...

    "Happy days are here again", (for those who are so inclined);)

    Rams are turning things around at last
    Shaw and Ziggy’s crap is in the past
    Spag's is here to stay, the die is cast
    Rams are back on track again

    Billy’s got his eyes upon the draft
    Showing everyone he’s honed his craft
    In our drafts before, the pundits laughed
    Rams are coming back again

    Bulger’s finally smiling just a bit
    His new center is a perfect fit
    Now at last he won’t get hit and hit
    Rams are going to win again

    Ron Bartell has got his corner spot
    And Atogwe’s going to still be hot
    Hill and Butler both will get their shot
    Rams are on the attack again

    D-Line’s finally got a touch of gray
    Looks like they may finally have their day
    Anyway, it’s clear they’re here to play
    Rams may get more sacks again

    Steven Jackson’s glad he’s now a Dad
    Contract’s done, so he’s no longer mad
    Gonna run like hell, and catch a tad
    Rams got running backs again

    Our receivers seem to lack some age
    Maybe so, but wait ‘til they engage
    Other team’s DBs, they will upstage
    Rams'll scare some D's again

    As a team, this all will take some time
    Lot of work ahead, an uphill climb
    And I just ran out of things that rhyme
    Rams are fun to watch again

    So OK, I hope this finds you well
    We’ll no longer hear the tolling bell
    Looks like character will finally tell
    Rams'll kick some 'A' again

    To many holes to fill. If healthy the following could give us a decent season IMO.
    by RamsSB99
    Assuming we have an uncapped year here are the unrestricted free agents I would like to see the Rams go after.

    Unrestricted Free Agents:
    Leigh Bodden CB 6'1 195
    Ben Watson TE 6'3 255
    Julius Peppers DE 6'7 283 (If we don't trade for Umenyiora the cheaper less commitment option)

    RD 1: Ndamukong Suh 6'4 305 DT (Would help entire defense DE's, LB's & DB's)
    RD 2: Sean Witherspoon 6'1 241 LB (Need another quality LB to go with J. Lau)
    RD 3: Danario Alexander 6'5 216 WR (big WR slowed early in career by injury)
    RD 4: Trade for Osi Umenyiora 6'3 261 DE (good at applying pressure)

    Resign the following restricted free agents:
    O.J. Atogwe 5'11 210 28 FS (resign)
    Alex Barron 6'7 315 27 OT (value sign)
    Clifton Ryan 6’3 316 26 DT (value sign)

    David Vobora 6’1 238 23 (value sign)

    Although I am not a big Bulger fan I would not mind keeping him one more year if we could address several other areas of concern. Bulger can be serviceable and its not like we are going from a 1 win team to the Superbowl in one year. Laurent Robinson looked like he might be our best WR prior to going down last year. If he returns healthy and we get Danario Alexander a big WR who had an outstanding college year (more then a TD per game and nearly 130 yards per game) then we might have a decent WR core to go along with Jacksons running game.

    Here would be our starters with the additions mentioned:

    DE – Chris Long 6'3 265 24
    DT – Ndamukong Suh 6’4 305 (Draft Round 1)
    DT- Clifton Ryan 6’3 316 26 (Resign RFA)
    DE – Osi Umenyora 6’3 261 29 (Trade 4th round pick) OR Julius Peppers

    SLB –David Vobora 6’1 238 23(Resign RFA)
    MLB – James Laurinatis 6’2 245 23
    WLB – Sean Witherspoon 6’1 241 (Draft Round 2)

    CB – Ron Bartell 6'1 210 27
    CB – Leigh Bodden 6’1 193 28 (Sign UFA)
    FS – O.J. Atogwe 5'11 210 28 (Resign RFA)
    SS – James Butler 6’3 215 27

    QB – Marc Bulger
    RB – Steven Jackson 6'2 235 26
    FB – Mike Karney 5’11 260 28
    TE – Ben Watson 6’3 255 29
    (Sign UFA)
    WR – Laurent Robinson 6’2 195 24, Brandon Gibson 6’1 205 22
    WR – Donnie Avery 5'11 185 25, Danario Alexander 6’5 216 (Round 3)
    LT – Jason Smith 6’5 305 23
    LG – Jacob Bell 6'4 295 28
    C – Jason Brown 6'3 320 26
    RG – John Greco 6'4 315 24,Adam Goldberg 6’7 320 29
    RT - Alex Barron 6'7 315 27 (Resign RFA)

    Special Teams
    K – Josh Brown 6’0 212 30
    P – Donnie Jones 6’2 222 29

    Av's "Other Draft Board" (My "Big 33")
    by AvengerRam_old
    Given how the choice for the first pick has narrowed, I think it is more productive for me to post a different type of draft board from my typical "top 10" list.

    I call this my "Big 33." Essentially, this is a list of 33 players who I would consider in either Round 1 or Round 2.

    Let me clarify. Most of these players are not among those I'd consider with the first pick (for me, that list has only two names on it). Likewise, many of the players have little or no chance of being there at pick No. 33. Finally, there are players likely to go in the top 33 (i.e. Taylor Mays, Carlos Dunlap, Rolando McClain) who I, for various reasons, would not consider with either the Rams two picks.

    All that stated, because the list has 33 players on it, the Rams will (absent a trade) have the opportunity to draft at least two of these players (they might not wish to, of course: i.e. if they take Bradford first, and the only players left from the list at #33 are Colt McCoy and Dan LeFevour - in that situation, I'd look to trade down).

    This list will be important to me because I will use it (or an updated version, should I choose to one) as my checklist for Thursday and Friday of Draft Weekend.

    So... here it is (listed by position):

    Sam Bradford (QB)
    Jimmy Clausen (QB)
    Colt McCoy (QB)
    Dan LeFevour (QB)
    C.J. Spiller (RB)
    Ryan Matthews (RB)
    Jahvid Best (RB)
    Dez Bryant (WR)
    Demaryius Thomas (WR)
    Golden Tate (WR)
    Jermaine Gresham (TE)
    Russell Okung (OT)
    Brian Bulaga (OT)
    Anthony Davis (OT)
    Trent Williams (OT)
    Vladmimir Ducasse (OT)
    Mike Iupati (OG)
    Ndamukong Suh (DT)
    Gerald McCoy (DT)
    Dan Williams (DT)
    Brian Price (DT)
    Derrick Morgan (DT)
    Jason Pierre-Paul (DE)
    Brandon Graham (DE)
    Everson Griffen (DE)
    Corey Wooten (DE)
    Sergio Kindle (DE/LB)
    Sean Weatherspoon (LB)
    Joe Haden (CB)
    Kyle Wilson (CB)
    Patrick Robinson (CB)
    Eric Berry (S)
    Earl Thomas (S)
