    Re-Signings

    FS OJ Atogwe
    NT Clifton Ryan
    OL Mark Setterstrom
    LS Chris Massey
    DE Leonard Little*
    DE C.J. Ah You

    Cuts

    OT Alex Barron
    TE Randy McMichael
    QB Marc Bulger

    Walks

    QB Kyle Boller
    DT Gary Gibson
    WR Ruvell Martin
    SS Clinton Hart
    RB Samkon Gado
    RB Kenneth Darby
    DE James Hall
    LB Paris Lenon
    DE Victor Adeyanju

    Free Agency

    QB Chad Pennington
    - Notes: A veteran QB who will be available due to Chad Henne's success in South Beach. Chad will be a great bridge QB for the Rams and could provide a similar spark/impact on offense as he did for Miami in '08.

    RB Leon Washington
    - Notes: With the emergence of rookie Shonn Greene, there is a crowded backfield with only so many carries to go around. Leon would be a great change of pace back for Steven who possesses a similar talent in the receiving game making him more dangerous.

    OT Tyson Clabo
    - Notes: With the departure of Alex Barron and Jason Smith shifting over to the left side, there is a need for a RT. Tyson Clabo has done a great job keeping Matt Ryan off his back in Atlanta and would help solidify our line.

    DE Ray Edwards
    - Notes: Although he plays with what might be the best supporting cast in the NFL (Jared Allen, Pat & Kevin Williams), Ray Edwards is a young player who has gotten better with each passing season. He would help add to the young nucleus that Devaney is trying to build on as well as give Spags a new toy to play with.

    LB Omar Gaither
    - Notes: He was with Spags for one season in Philadelphia, but he possesses the versatility to play different linebacker positions. Besides Laurinaitis, our LB core has a lot of issues and Gaither will be a solid addition.

    LB Danny Clark
    - Notes: A jack-of-all-trades who can play all three linebacker spots, he essentially replaces Paris Lenon as the veteran of this group but more importantly provides depth at each position.

    CB Richard Marshall
    - Notes: A tough, physical corner who fits the mold of what Spags wants. Marshall is very young and entering the prime of his career which is exactly what the Rams want and he also fills a position of need.

    NFL Draft

    Round 1: Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
    - Notes: Taking a QB first overall would be a slam dunk here if there was a franchise type available, alas, the Rams don't exactly have the best luck. However, they are blessed to find one of the best defensive prospects of the decade. Suh not only addresses an area of need, but he makes the rest of the defense better and could help catapult Chris Long into double-digit sacks in 2010.

    Round 2: Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma.
    - Notes: Playmakers, playmakers, playmakers. Is that what you want Billy? Look no further than Jermaine Gresham who would've been taken in the mid-first had he not gotten injured. Although he needs to show the willingness to be a better blocker, Gresham is an outstanding receiver and would help give the Rams another threat they desperately need on offense.

    Round 3: Dezmon Briscoe, WR, Kansas.
    - Notes: A tall receiver with outstanding production at Kansas, Briscoe is not getting the type of buzz like an Arrelious Benn, Damian Williams or Golden Tate, but he has the potential to be a great WR at the next level that can be had outside of the first round.

    Round 4: Koa Misi, DE, Utah
    - Notes: As of right now, Misi remains an intriguing option in round four because of his production and non-stop motor. However, with an invite to the Senior Bowl and a chance to play in front of scouts, his stock could be on the rise.

    Round 5: Dan LeFevour, QB, Central Michigan
    - Notes: At this time last year, LeFevour was viewed as a QB who could possibly go in the first round. But with an inconsistent senior year and more time for scouts to pick apart his game, his stock has fallen. Although his arm strength isn't great and he plays in a spread offense, taking a flier on LeFevour this late would be a great move for the Rams.

    Round 5 (PHI): Stafon Johnson, RB, USC.
    - Notes: Johnson was the victim of a terrible weightlifting accident his senior year at USC. When he was playing, he split carries between himself, Joe McKnight and C.J. Gable. Johnson shows quick moves for a big back and would battle with last year's seventh round pick Chris Ogbannaya for a roster spot.

    Round 6: Reggie Carter, ILB, UCLA.
    - Notes: An inside backer at UCLA, Carter has the ability to shift to the outside in St. Louis and help provide depth to a LB core that is currently in flux.

    Round 7: Derek Hardman, OT, Eastern Kentucky.
    - Notes: You can never have enough depth at the tackle position as we have seen for the past couple of seasons here in St. Louis. Hardman would most likely battle for a spot on the practice squad.

    Round 7 (ATL): Sherrick McManis, CB, Northwestern.
    - Notes: Beyond our starters, Justin King and Quincy Butler certainly leave a lot to be desired. McManis would get a legitimate chance to prove himself.

    Re: Bald_81's Mock Offseason V1

    Do you think a healthy Pennington is really an upgrade over a healthy Bulger?

    How are we going to convince Ray Edwards to come from the supporting cast in Minnesota to here?

    Why would we draft a 3rd round receiver if we get Gresham in the 2nd?

    How are we going to sign Marshall, Leon Washington and Ray Edwards the same year? Are going to pull money out of our ass?

    Why is Gary Gibson Walking?

      Always love seeing what everyone else thinks. Nice work.

      I have three concerns.

      1) Picking up 7 people in Free Agency may be a little unrealistic.

      2) I read that Leon Washington wants some big money. Maybe 5 mill a year. I'm not saying he isn't worth it I just don't see paying that for a back-up and I also think he will favor going somewhere he can be the number 1.

      3) Maybe it's just our history but I really don't want to use a second round pick on a tight end. Not unless he is Dallas Clark's younger brother. ;)

            I like everything except signing pennington, his arm strength wasn't that great before he re-injured his throwing shoulder (third surgery on that shoulder)...I do agree that we need a new face to the franchise with a change at qb though.

            Swap firsts with tampa, get a couple 2nds, and maybe even get a third, and draft claussen? We get our franchise qb, and can fill more holes with the extra picks...

              Well it could be an uncapped year next year, but also the Rams have some 30mill in cap space thanks to Billy Devaney working some magic on the dead money and rubbish big contracts we gave in the past

                Dezmon Briscoe? No

                Sorry, but I would prefer somebody that knows how to hold onto the ball once he catches it. Danario Alexander would likely be available at this point in the draft, and I see no reason not to take the best wide receiver in College Football last year. He has height, speed, and knows how to catch the ball and make plays after the catch.

                  The big concern about Leon Washington is that he comes from an injury. He also wants to be paid like a top back... We can find better value, especially at the position.
                  I like the Stafon Johnson pick in the 5th, he is a tough runner and a complete back, he could be a steal at this level.
                  Si vous croyez en vous, que vous avez de la fierté, et que vous ne lâchez jamais, vous serez un gagnant.
                  Le prix de la victoire est chère, mais la récompense en vaut la peine.

                    Why is Gary Gibson Walking?
                    1. Is that a joke? You would think after numerous nicks and injuries Pennington has suffered throughout his career he would regress or exhibit the "shell-shocked" tendencies that Bulger currently does. Instead, he continues to come back and perform and he was very proficient with Miami in '08. He didn't exactly have incredible weapons either (Ginn, Bess, Camarillo as his WRs), but he had a great running game which is something he will have here in St. Louis.

                    2. We just convinced Jason Brown last year to leave an up and coming team in Baltimore to join the Rams, so who's to say we can't draw Ray Edwards here especially when he will work with a defensive mind like Spagnuolo?

                    3. Our WR core is young and has potential but there are still holes, most notably the lack of a true #1. Briscoe has great size which is what we currently lack (Laurent Robinson is our tallest WR at 6'2) and he has decent speed which could make him a nice target in the red zone for those fade routes we saw being thrown at our smaller WRs this year.

                    4. If this were a capped year, the Rams would be $35 mil under. You're telling me they couldn't sign seven players with that much free money? I'm not suggesting Devaney is going to go for a one year quick fix, but to imply that it would take a miracle to sign seven player is just laughable.

                    5. He's walking because if we draft Suh, we will have him along with Clifton Ryan, Darell Scott, Adam Carriker, LaJuan Ramsey and Leger Douzable at the DT position. I just don't see any room for a guy like Gibson.

                      I agree with all you points except this one. And the only reason i dont agree with this is that Gibson was playing ahead of Scott, Ramsey and Douzable before his injury.

                      Then again i suppose it depends on how many DTs the Rams plan to keep on the roster, as 6 seems a lot. Especially since none of them really play end (maybe Carriker could)

                        I don't think LeFevour will last until the 5th round.

                          by sakl18
                          Release/Let Walk
                          • Alex Barron, LT - His spree of drive killing penalties comes to an end.
                          • Kyle Boller, QB - Showed us just why he's no longer a Raven.
                          • Randy McMichael, TE - Hasn't played at the level he did in Miami.
                          • Leonard Little, LE - If he's willing to stay for a small contract he gets re-signed, otherwise he goes.
                          • Marc Bulger, QB - His days as a Ram are over, as both parties need a fresh start.
                          • Samkon Gado, RB - Really struggled this season and an upgrade is needed.
                          • Kenneth Darby, RB - Another backup RB who was innefective.

                          Resign
                          • Anyone who isn't being let loose.

                          Free Agents
                          • Jason Campbell, QB, Washington - He still has potential and needs a fresh start. If all else fails, he's a stop gap QB.
                          • Ray Edwards, LE, Minnesota - A solid DE who would immediately help with our pass rush woes.
                          • Jerious Norwood, RB, Atlanta - A speed back who would be a great change of pace for Jackson, and would also lessen his work load.

                          Draft
                          • 1) Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska - Need I say more?
                          • 2) Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri - A fast sideline to sideline 'backer who wold start immediately. Also has great leadership skills.
                          • 3) Dan LeFevour, QB, Central Michigan - Has a good arm and great mobility. Will take a few years to transition game to the NFL level, but has great potential.
                          • 4) Jared Veldheer, OT, Hillsdale - A massive tackle with surprising agility for his size. Would start immediately at RT.
                          • 5A) Jimmy Graham, TE, Miami - Converted basketball player who has great height and quickness. Has phenominal upside.
                          • 5B) Joique Bell, RB, Wayne State - A back who's both shifty and physical, and can catch passes out of the backfield.
                          • 6) Devin Ross, CB, Arizona - Has good potential for a late round pick and will provide depth.
                          • 7A) O'Brien Schoefield, DE, Wisconsin - A great pass rusher who was a projeccted 2nd or 3r round prospect who tore his ACL at a Senior Bowl practice. He may have to be placed on IR for his first year, but he has the potential to be a late round gem.
                          • 7B) Cord Howard, OG, Georgia Tech - Will provide depth at the guard position.

                          Let me know what you think, if this is possible, etc.

                          Resign:

                          - James Hall, DE (cheap, good rotational guy)
                          - Gary Gibson, DT (good depth, cheap)
                          - Clifton Ryan, DT (good DT, developing)
                          - OJ Atogwe, FS (ballhawk in the secondary, one of our better D players)
                          - Mark Setterstrom, OG (Decent backup on the OL)
                          - Daniel Fells, TE (showed some flashes, looks like a good back-up)

                          Cut:
                          - Alex Barron, LT (bust, will want LT money, hurts the team with drive killing mental mistakes)
                          - Leonard Little, DE (older, will want starting DE money, time to move on)
                          - Randy McMichael, TE (not a good TE anymore)
                          - Marc Bulger, QB (he's old, expensive and can't be relied on anymore)

                          Free Agents:
                          - Leon Washington, RB (good change of pace back, explosive, good in the return game, will come cheeper because of injury)
                          - Tony Scheffler, TE (balanced TE who has excellent hands and decent blocking skills, feud with McDaniels will make him available from the Broncos)
                          - Chad Pennington, QB (he's a one year stop gap to groom whatever QB we draft in the later rounds this year, he'll be cheap coming off surgery and should still have enough of a noodle arm to work in our west coast offense)
                          - David Baas, OG (Big, run blocking RG to replace Richie)
                          - Adam Terry, OT (Mammoth OT who will provide good depth/spot starting)
                          - Thomas Howard, OLB (Great cover LB, will be dropped by the Raiders as a scapegoat for their struggles in stopping the run)
                          - Derrick Johnson, MLB (I'm suggesting we move him to OLB where he dominated in college, I believe he's being misused right now)
                          - Richard Marshall, CB (physical corner who supports the run, a traditional Spags guy)

                          Draft:

                          1.01- Ndamukong Suh, DT (Beast, BPA, Position of Need)
                          2.01- Demaryius Thomas, WR (Ideal size, good speed and hands, WAS the Georgia Tech passing game)
                          3.01- Greg Hardy, DE (Good size and speed, a solid pass rusher to work opposite Chris Long)
                          4.01- Ciron Black, OT (Drops because he's not projected as a LT despite playing it all through college, dominant run blocker and instant RT starter)
                          5.01- Dan LeFevour, QB (He's got a good chance to succeed at a cheap price, throw him in there and see if he can make something happen, if not, Jake Locker next year)

                          Nick's Early January Rams Mock Offseason
                          by Nick
                          Before Christmas, I completed my first first-round mock of this draft season. I speculated that I might be able to do a Rams-only mock that corresponds, but just haven't had the time recently to sit down and do it...

                          ...UNTIL NOW!!!!! :ram:



                          CURRENT ROSTER – RESIGN
                          -FS OJ Atogwe: He’ll be a restricted free agent in an uncapped year, so tender him a high offer and keep him around while trying to work out a long-term deal.

                          -NT Clifton Ryan: Ryan will likely be either a restricted or exclusive rights free agent without a cap, so the Rams should be able to retain him fairly easily. He’s emerged as a solid starter on the line.

                          -DT Gary Gibson: Gibson showed some flashes before he was injured, and it certainly couldn’t hurt to resign him to a minimum deal to see if he can win a job in camp.

                          -OL Mark Setterstrom: Mark is considered to be one of our better young lineman, but just can’t manage to stay healthy. Still, he provides some nice depth and should be retained as a RFA.

                          -LS Chris Massey: An effective long snapper, there’s really no reason not to bring Massey back, nor any reason to think it can’t be done for cheap.

                          -DE Leonard Little: Little may not even want to play in 2010, but if he can be brought back for relatively cheap as a situational pass rusher, the Rams would benefit.


                          CURRENT ROSTER – CUT/UNSIGNED
                          -OT Alex Barron: Barron looks to be a restricted free agent in an uncapped year, but I think the Rams send a better message by letting him hit the market.

                          -TE Randy McMichael: A cause for optimism when Scott Linehan lured McMichael away from Miami, the tight end hasn’t really done much and was a big disappointment in 2009.

                          -QB Kyle Boller: The experiment did not work out. Boller doesn’t really have much in the tank right now, certainly not enough to be relied upon as an efficient back-up passer.

                          -CB Jonathan Wade: A former third round pick, Wade hasn’t made much of an impact for the Rams and barely played after the bye despite being a starter in September.


                          FREE AGENCY ADDITIONS
                          -LB Derrick Johnson (Chiefs): Johnson is upset about his back-up role in Kansas City, and rightfully so. Though he’s a restricted free agent, he may be allowed to walk if Todd Haley doesn’t value him. He could very well become a starter at OLB for the Rams.

                          -RB Jerious Norwood (Falcons): Norwood will be a popular item on many offseason wishlists for many teams as he’s a very nice change of pace ‘back. The Falcons may be willing to part with Norwood even though he’s a restricted free agent because of the emergence of Jason Snelling.

                          -DE Mark Anderson (Bears): Anderson is another restricted free agent, but Chicago traded for Gaines Adams and drafted Jarron Gilbert in the third...

                          Sakl18's Mock Offseason
                          by sakl18
                          Here is my mock offseason. Let me know what you think, and don't be afraid to tear me apart.


                          Re-sign
                          • Anyone who isn't in the release column
                          Release
                          • Leonard Little - If he is willing to stay for cheap, then we re-sign him. If not, see ya.
                          • Marc Bulger - His days as a Ram are over, it's time to move on.
                          • Randy McMichael - No longer the tight end he once was.
                          • Alex Barron - His drive killing penalty spree comes to an end.
                          • Kyle Boller - Showed us just why he's no longer a Raven.
                          Free Agent Signings
                          • Jason Campbell, QB - Take a chance on him. If all else fails, he's a stop-gap QB.
                          • Tony Scheffler, TE - A good blocking and receiving TE.
                          • David Baas, OG - A powerful run blocker who can open up holes at the RG position.
                          • Leon Washington, RB - A good relief and change of pace back for Steven Jackson.
                          • Ray Edwards, LE - Played very well in Minnesota, albeit with Allen and the Williams'.
                          Draft Picks
                          • 1) Ndamukong Suh*, DT - Self explanatory.
                          • 2) Sean Weatherspoon, WLB - A fast, sure tackling linebacker who would provide a major upgrade over Paris Lenon.
                          • 3) Jared Veldheer, OT - A monstrous tackle with surprising agility who projects as a solid RT.
                          • 4) Dan LeFevour, QB - Has a good arm and great mobility.

                          KR/PR - Leon Washington, Danny Amendola

                          *Some of you may have seen me arguing for taking Clausen first overall, however, that is only if we don't sign a QB in free agency.

                          Rockin's Mock Draft (@ the playoffs)
                          by RockinRam
                          Another one of my mock drafts.

                          Some changes have been made since my last mock, including the addition of the FA. Well, here it goes.


                          FA:

                          Mark Anderson, DE Chicago Bears (Mid-level FA signing)

                          Richard Marshall, CB Carolina Panthers (Premium-level FA signing)

                          Chris Gocong, OLB Philadelphia Eagles (Low-level FA signing)

                          Tony Scheffler, TE Denver Broncos (Mid-level FA signing)


                          Re-signing:

                          O.J Atogwe

                          James Hall

                          Gary Gibson

                          Craig Dahl

                          Clifton Ryan


                          The team's needs after the Free Agency:

                          DT
                          QB
                          back-up RB
                          #1 WR
                          OLB (Chris Gocong will man one OLB spot.)
                          OG
                          RT



                          Draft:


                          Round 1:

                          Ndamukong Suh, DT, 6-4 300+ lbs. Nebraska

                          There is no need for me to preach what has already been preached many times.

                          Round 2:

                          Damian Williams, WR, 6-1 190lbs. USC

                          Some people will question this and say, how about Demaryius Thomas out of Georgia Tech? Won't Williams go in the first round?

                          IMO, I think Williams is going to be available in the start of the second round. Some franchises might go after WR's with prettier numbers than Williams, which might have him being available for us in the second round.

                          Why Williams you ask?

                          Because Williams plays in a pro-style offense, has elite route running which is a perfect fit for our WCO, is very quick out of his cuts, great hands, amazing hand-eye coordination, and is a very smart football player with good character.

                          Round 3:


                          Gabe Carimi, OT, 6-8, 320lbs. Wisconsin

                          Took over for Joe Thomas in Wisconsin, a school known for producing solid O-linemen. Carimi has very good footwork for a 6-8 human being, and is very stout in pass protection. Has enough athleticism to man the LT spott in the NFL, but he would excel at the RT due to his amazing run blocking skills. Very balanced blocker who uses his long arms to push defenders off the line of scrimmage.

                          Round 4:


                          Sean Canfield, QB, 6-4, 215lbs. Oregon State

                          Lacking in athleticism, strength and speed, he makes up for it with good accuracy and good arm strength. He is a very good pocket passer, always maintaining his composure in the pocket, and makes the correct reads. Shows good touch and timing on his passes, with a good release.

                          Round 5:


                          Dexter McCluster, RB/WR, 5-8, 170lbs. Ole Miss

                          May drop because franchises might hesitate on him due to his small frame, which would lead to questions about durability/injury proneness..etc.

                          Would be a great change of pace back for Steven Jackson. Very quick and elusive, and has good ball...
