  • 2010 Draft

    after going through many scouting reports and watching some film on 2010 prospects ive narrowed it down to two players. to tell you the truth i cant believe im saying this but none of these two players is a qb. to me its between Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State orNdamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska (6-4, 305)...yes i know we drafted jason smith last year blah blah blah but unless he plays LT we need this mammoth of a tackle lol..the only reason not to consider drafting him is if Alex Barron continues to play well and if that stays the same we go DT with our first pick. the only way the rams should consider drafting a QB in the first round is if Sam Bradford finishes up the season in beast mode or something...other than that i dont think no Qb is worth a top ten pick..id like to hear your guys opinion on this post..please be nice i dont want to bad rep anyone=)
    ill rep those that give good counter examples on why im wrong and rep those who can further explain my reasonings.. thanks

OT is an option but I agree with AV when he said that we would be able to find a RT later in the draft. We have too many needs and if we can pick up more draft picks, we would be better for it. oh, and if you're going to be giving rep you need to get some rep first, so when you give rep it will make more of an impact. lol like this.... REP to you good sir
    Again I dont think putting a rookie back there getting sacked 30+ times a season is gonna be a good idea. We need a solid nose tackles to fill gaps and get penetration in the middle. We can try to get a qb in FA.

      Re: 2010 Draft

      yeah i don't think qb is the answer in the first round next year. i don't see bulger getting cut after this season (mostly for financial reasons) so if a qb is drafted it will probably be more of a developmental guy in the 2nd or 3rd round. if one of clausen/locker/snead falls to the second round, and i think one of them probably will, take him.

      in the first round i'd rather go with carlos dunlap or ndamukong suh, assuming we're picking in the top 5. these guys would both be excellent additions to our d-line, and basically exactly what we need there. i know qb is ingrained into the minds of football fans and most people want to go that way if there's any doubt whatsoever, but patience is the only way to dig ourselves out of this hole, and a shiny new first-round qb does us no good without fixing the line first. that's why the smart ones build from the inside out.

        Re: 2010 Draft

        This is my reasoning.

        1) The weak link of our O-Line is our interior, mainly our guards position.

        2) We should be upgrading our guard positions in the draft.

        3) If we DO plan to draft some guards to solidify that position, then drafting a QB in round 1 wouldn't be that much of a problem.

        4) I really like Suh, but I also like Terrence Cody the NT from Alabama.

        5) I'm kind of hesitant on Okung. He was projected to be a low 1st round, high 2nd round pick last year. The reason? Jason Smith, Eugene Monroe, Andre Smith, and about 4-5 other tackles were rated higher than him. This does not bode very well for him. He may have improved since last year though. So we'll see.


        Right now, my draft plan would be: Trade down a little bit, maybe to the 15-25 range, and getting an extra 2nd round pick, and then try to draft Terrence Cody in the first round. Although he may only be a two down player, every time this guy comes in, opposing O-linemen will sweat with fear.

        Then, with our two 2nd round picks, we can draft a DE, SLB, QB, WR, any of them.

        Then, with our or

          I say we draft Jimmy Clausen and stick him behind Bulger or Boller. Only if Clausen is available 2nd round, but I doubt it

            Let's keep an eye on Jake Locker out of Washington for the draft at QB. He may be a hot item now, but chances are he'll be around the top 10 in next year's draft. My early thoughts on the subject.

            Go Rams!

              Good point. Locker will be intriguing in 2011, especially now that he's playing under Steve Sarkisian in a more pro-style offense. I don't think Locker comes out after this year though, so if the Rams look for their QB of the future in this draft, he probably doesn't factor in.

                Re: 2010 Draft

                I realize that I may be in the minority opinion here, but I would be interested in acquiring more "speed players" over re-building the O-line. I don't know if Alex Barron will stay after next year, but seeing Chicago pick up Devon Hester (and watching that kid run) makes me feel we lost a good opportunity at some offense. Mark Sanchez is really impressive at the way he is developing into a QB talent...that reminds me of a young Troy Aikman.

                Oh yes, Jason Smith, our pick. Not a bad selection my any means, I just wish that we could get him back onto the playing field.

                Before I forget, I was dead-wrong about Michael Crabtree. As it turns out, that would have been drafting trouble with a capital "T." I thought that he would be an immediate Torry Holt potential player.

                Best to all Ram fans !!!!!

                Next season, assuming the Rams are not sold, I hope for 1. speed and 2. next QB to succeed Bulger.

                  Well at #2, he would've been signed because he would be getting the money he wants...So who knows if he'll be great or not...

                    I'm going with this route. Stick with me guys. You can light me up with criticism. I don't mind. haha

                    #1 - Cody. He is going to be a monster. We are a defensive team, it would be foolish not to take him.

                    #2 - Here is the criticism. Tim Tebow. He's a winner. Since we are running a west coast style, all he has to do is hit slants and occasionally launch a long ball (which he can do).

                        If QB is the way the team is going to go, I'd like Locker as well, particularly if the line remains weak. He is great at avoiding the rush and can take off with the ball if the pocket collapses.

                        That being said, I'm not sure QB is the way to go. This team has too many holes to get too caught up in looking for a particular position. I think the best way to go is to take the top available player on the board at the time. There is no position on the team so solid that it can't be upgraded.

                          2010 Draft Strategy
                          by richtree
                          Ok, we will be picking top 5 again at best 6th.

                          QB is number 1 priority.

                          Unless we go after Kolb, Vick, or Derek Anderson we are picking a QB in Round 1.

                          So is it gonna be Teabow, Bradford, or McCoy?

                          Then the big Question is what need to we get in round 2?

                          So would agrue if there is big time play maker on the defensive side of the ball we should grad a big time LB or DE that can rush the QB.

                          I will continue to update this thread based on who we should be looking at, and who we should avoid.

                          I feel we should try to grab a OLineman in free agency this year and our draft picks should be used on QB, WR, DLine, StronSide LB.

                          I really haven't gotten to look at who will be free agents in the league and what our options are, so this is just to spark convo throughout what looks to be a 4 win season at very best.

                          No QB in the draft next year.
                          by Richbert88
                          This team still has alot of things to do before becoming a playoff caliber team. Young players maturing..............players staying healthy.

                          I would much rather see the Rams address other needs. If things go poorly again, which with they're luck with injuries it will, then next year they might have a shot at Locker. And that may well be the last very high pick this team sees in a while.

                          I think Suh in the first, then chase BPA in round 2 and 3, then needs in the rest of the draft. Continue to sign young FAs.

                          Whose going to play QB? Whose playing it now.

                          Little may retire? who knows. Let's get the rest of the base team fixed up before the QB of the future arrives. Rothsburger style.

                          My dream draft
                          by 01d 0rd3r
                          Round 1 Suh DT- Unless TB pulls out a good offer four our first pick then Suh is the obvious #1

                          Round 2 Weatherspoon OLB- Great size, good speed, and i love his attitude. I would like our defense to do alot more talking across the line, my hope is to turn him into a joey porter type.

                          Round 3 Dan Lefevour QB- Arm strength, mobility, smarts, this guy has it all. From reports from the senior bowl he seems to be adjusting to taking snaps under center well, this guy will be great for us.

                          Round 4 Dexter McCluster RB- Change of pace back take pressure off of SJAX, the man is a real playmaker and will bring a quick strike ability to our offense.

                          Round 5 John Jerry OG- Good size, great strength, will take the place of incognito in due time.

                          Round 5 Andrew Quarless TE- We might strike gold with this pick, he showed talent in the east west shrine game and could possibly be a very good TE

                          Round 6 Chris Hawkins CB- We need more depth at corner, we really run thin at times.

                          Round 7 Alex Daniels DE- Rotational player

                          Round 7- Reed Williams LB- Rotational Depth

                          Before you comment this draft assumes that we pick up some people in free agency. Like a RT and a DE, heres to hoping.

                          by dave626
                          How many 1rst round defensive lineman have we drafted since 1995.?
                          How many times have we heard that THIS guy is going to make a difference?
                          How many years have we waited for THIS guy to develope into the pick we've spent on him?

                          I know a new HC (and a good one IMO)
                          I know a new GM (also a good one IMO)

                          But as fans, we have put ALOT of hope into that D line, and I for one am ready to get a QB. Yes he has question marks about his durability, and the spread offense he comes from, but his accuracy,quick release and ability to get the ball out quickly, certainly give me more hope than another tackler.

                          I know Suh COULD be more than just another tackler but what if he isnt.What if we have to wait 3-4 years for him to grow into the roll? Then we would have wasted ANOTHER 1rst round pick on a position that our new HC should be able to coach up.

                          With a 1rst OA pick at the QB position I think after the first year we will KNOW what we have and if we've done our homework I think we could be in a much better position.

                          Its just surprising to me that with ALL we have invested in the Dline already there are guys still wanting to put ANOTHER 1rst round pick there.

                          Yes its still a hole but I think our coach will get more out of them in his 2nd year.
