  • 2010 Draft

    I apologize in advance if this has been disx already, so humor me please.

    I can't help but now think ahead to the draft and I'm interested in your opinions on who the Rams should pick first. I realize there's a lot of different directions for them to go, but I really like the idea of getting Ndamukong Suh, DT - Nebraska. Dominating DT's do not come along very often, and I like the idea of the Rams having a dominating D-line for the next several years. I know there's going to be a push for picking a QB, however, history has shown that picking a QB early doesn't work out.

    Thoughts?

    Ooops! Wrong topic! My apologies!

    Why Draft "Experts" Annoy Me
    by RamFan_Til_I_Die
    I can't be the only one that gets annoyed by all these so called draft "experts" that change there mind like r8rh8rmike changes his underwear...about once a week. I'm going to use SI's main mock "expert" as an example. Not becuase he's the best, but because his past mocks are easy to find. H3e's just an example of what annoys me.

    Don Banks 2010 NFL Mock Drafts thusfar:

    Suh is a rock solid concensus as the surest thing. Sounds great, right?

    So roughly a month later, the day before the DT's do anything at the combine, the rock solid concensus is now split 50/50 and McCoy is our choice. Um ok. Nothing changed so why did his opinion?

    So because of one quote from Devaney, who is only making picks to save his job, we're now taking a QB in Stafford. Yeah ok, whatever you say Donny boy.

    Again implying they'll pick to stay employed rather than to make the pick that helps the team the most, while also covering his backside in case they don't pick Bradford. Pretty typical "expert" BS.

    Bradford had a good pro day so now it's a sure thing. OK now at this point I can see someone switching to Bradford as a possibility, but before no way. It just makes no sense. But even still what happened to Suh the "rock solid concensus as the surest thing.?"

    WOW. We sure did a 180 in two and a half months didn't we. First Suh is the "rock solid concensus as the surest thing" and now to take anyone but Bradford is "the kind of stunning turn of events we haven't seen in years."

    This is just one example of what annoys me about these "experts." McShay has flopped from Suh to Bradford also, while Kiper has flipped from Suh being "the most dominating defensive tackle I've seen in 32 years of doing this." to Clausen. It seems like they build up and exaggerate the plus side of whoever they want. For the longest time all we heard was Suh is a lock to go #1 to the Rams, and now it's a QB. Yes I know Blger is now gone, but these guys flopped to QBs while he was still here. Is it anything more than hype and these draft guys feeding off of each other that made Suh go from the guaranteed pick to now being the #2 DT behind McCoy in many people's eyes? I just don't get it. These guys annoy the crap out of me....

    If we draft a QB.
    by dave626
    How long do you guys think it will take for him to contribute? Will he spend a year or more on the sidelines?

    At this point I wouldnt go near the Bradford guy and his shoulder because in our offense you WILL get sacked, and reinjury of that shoulder would be, well we all know.

    The Claussen guy it seems most are split on.

    Suh ofcourse would start right away, but would he be a Long case? yaknow 2-3 years before he starts to be the guy we drafted. I like Long, his dad was a monster back when I was a raiders fan.

    Point is, even if we draft a QB, whos gonna be our QB NEXT year?

    I hope we get Suh and get a QB in FA, at least that way we see what we pay for this year.

    But I guess we'll see

    2010 Draft
    by AlwaysBackwards
    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

    If the Rams stay at pick #1, there are really only 4 candidates.
    by AvengerRam_old
    If the Rams don't trade down from the first pick in the draft, their choice really comes down to four players.

    The Frontrunner: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
    I call Suh the frontrunner because he is the player that most people consider the best prospect in the draft. While I obviously don't have any inside information from the Rams, I certainly can see a coach like Steve Spagnuolo, who built a champion defense on the strength of the D line, favoring Suh.

    The Dark-Horse Candidate: Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
    While he is currently overshadowed by Suh, he is still considered a top 3-5 pick. If Suh slides during the evaluation period, while McCoy shines, he could rise to the top.

    The Cult Favorite: Jimmy Clausen, QB, Notre Dame
    Those who like Clausen really like him. In my opinion, his size is potentially an issue, and I'll be curious how he is reported as comporting himself in interviews. That said... QBs can rise quickly in the eyes of scouts, coaches and personnel guys. Just ask Mark Sanchez.

    The Forgotten Candidate: Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
    Bradford may have been the first pick in the 2009 draft had he come out. Now he stands as the poster child for those who advocate early departures from college. Still, if he passes all the tests he'll be put through in the next few months, teams could fall in love again with his 2008 game tapes.

    There are other top prospects who I really don't think the Rams would take No. 1 overall. I have Derrick Morgan rated #2 on my draft board, but I really don't see the Rams passing on Suh (or McCoy) to take him. Eric Berry and Joe Haden are A list DBs who will both go in the top 10 selections, but again, not to the Rams at No. 1. The Rams may like C.J. Spiller (as do I), but they can't afford to take a RB at No. 1 unless they trade Jackson, which isn't likely to happen. Finally, Dez Bryant, though a top WR prospect, does not appear to be a guy who would go that high.

    So, in my book... its one of these four players or a trade down (which I don't expect to happen).

    Anyone think there are more than four candidates?
